    Had a really good time!

    Great to see so many people properly enjoying themselves at a night, the true Breakneck vibe.

    All the sets were well played, although I don't remember much of the great Grooverider's set, ha! [me]Waho whoh whoh whur![/me] The system sounded top notch, heavyweight fo' sure.

    Big up to everyone who made it what it was, and a special thank you to the people who bought our new T-shirts, you rock mangs! (y)

    The photos are now up on the gallery, so check 'em out :rolf:

    Shout to all I spoke to, good to see all of you again. Props to cK and Rob who came down from Milton Keynes, respect! :teeth:

    Roll on New Years Eve with Friction, Mampi Swift and SP:MC :slayer:

    Bo! Another wicked (sorry, shatpank) night! Props to all the usuals epsecially to Dan and SDM for the christmas pressies. Have to say I was hugely impressed with the system, get double the amount in next time for NYE!

    Grooves set was pretty heavy, even though he's a bit of a grumpy old ..... at times. Charge I loved instantly because he played Let Loose. Whenever I hear that crazy high pitched screeching bit (don't know the technical term) I go fucking nuts. Love it. Have to say the boys in red held it down at the end tho...lol!

    Until NYE then, big ups!

    P.S. Big up all the gals as well for the endless amounts of dancing, eye lid battering and attempts at grabbing. Funny shit......

    Had a good night Zoob the system sounded crisp, I think I've gone deaf in my right ear from the Mackie monitor damn those things are loud!! Was pretty bervous has to be said that's the biggest party I played at so was a little sweaty in palms at times. Shout to Owain & D for letting me play, & finally got to meet the legends which are SDM & Triple McWizzle.

    Glad it was sucessfull :cool:
    Yeah man that thing is a beast, you should have let someone know and it could have gone down a notch, wish i could have been there. Sounds like it's running nicely.
    What im thinking of doing is suggesting to Gav, about putting the Lab's under it. So adding an extra 8k of Sub bass... that will probably be around NYE time, or early next year. Then i reckon, breakneck as a night will have one hell of a system, probably one of the best for a monthly dnb event, (maybe not the same db volume as say the end, but clarity wise and bass, hell yes) definately in this area anyway. BO! :devilslay

    Oh mumma that will be tight. Then main rig was sounding crisp maybe not as heavy as the last rig in terms of bass but still worked. I reckon a couple of sub's would work perfectly as sometimes when your close to the speakers it's gets little tinny.

    Yes mate, thats excatly what it needs. Extra Sub-bass. Luckly our cabinets are pretty much the best i've heard on sub bass reproduction so we should be sorted!!

    I demand that Spor is booked if possible and plays immediately.

    Dante's inferno, haunt me. Mental business.

    The last BN i went to was around this time last year with Friction and Bailey... and man that was ace! Not too sure why, but down to circumstances i hadn't been to one since then - but I'm damn glad i came to this one! Leaving Bedford at around 2pm, we finally arrived in Portsmouth at about 8. Damn Traffic on the M25! Checked in to the local Ibis Hotel and then went off in search of the local pub. Eventually got to BN with DJ Sayber on the decks! This set was awesome!
    Mixing the darker stuff (all of which I've never heard b4) with some of the one's that sent me going crazy (Screamer for one!) Not too sure what then happened between the next hour or so, but I remember dropping a pint on the floor during Grooverider's set... Not really what I was expecting from Grooverider but it was wicked nevertheless! SDM and Triple M delivered a top notch set as usual and the numerous reloads on the last tune were well deserved!
    I hadn't really heard any of the MCs that were there last night before - but not only did they seem to be enjoying themselves as well, but they did a top notch job too!

    All in all - a top nite!!!

    Shout outs to everyone I met there - M Code, Dunc, Sayber,Stu, cK (biggup man), random pissed people that were in the sea afterwards, Owain and everyone else!

    wicked night guys!

    I enjoyed SDM and trip M's set loads, well done on that one! Also big up to Gibber who hosted most of the night and did really well even if he did sound a bit hoarse afterwards!

    System sounded wicked although bass didnt really carry very far but fuck it it was cool down the front!

    Big up to all the usual faces in attendance! Plenty of vibes, plenty of JD n coke and plenty of gals to annoy with my fukin awful chat up lines! still one out of three aint bad!
    even a big up to the girl who robbed me of a WKD, thats the last time i ask agirl if she wants a drink! haha.

    cant wait for NYE! got nuff peeps comin to that one! gonna be a proper party!

    I don't think he appreciated being searched so thoroughly.
