    Yo peeps,


    Was a fair turnout considering the lack of student entirety in pompey factor, and the system was sounding nice an criss. Zinc and Dynamite were pretty good, as was 3D, although the mic levels were a tad on the low side again. Thought SDM and Triple M's set had plenty of punch in it and was probs the best of the night. Big ups boys! What did you all think? And where are the photties?

    Roll on the VLV special!

    Unfortunately I was quite tired on Friday (bloody work!), so I didn't end up getting many photos.

    Download this .zip file for the 10 decent ones I took

    Reference the night, another quality Breakneck! Definitely living up to it's reputation!

    Wicked sets from all the DJ's; Charge, Bad Ace, and the mighty Zinc (he really enjoyed himself!). Gibber deservedly took his place as one of the Breakneck resident MC's, and Dynamite didn't fail to impress as per usual.

    I personally felt myself and Triple M lacked the fire we usually have, so I'm hoping it's back for the 2 hour rinse on the Valve system in October!

    As per usual, look out for Dan Breakneck's photos on www.break-neck.com and Ben's photos on www.dontstayin.com - I'm sure they'll tell the story better than I can!

    Big up to the Breakneck gang, you know who you are! A special big up going out to Giles and Steptoe for the post Breakneck water antics (y) :uberlaugh

    Breakneck Firin on all cylinders! Wicked selection of classic an new dancefloor by birdface, 3d sounding criss as ever, an zincs with a rollout selection like no other.
    Mic levels were pretty low for Dynamite too I felt, but hey, you cant win em all? :alf:

    Breakneck cant be touched on the vibe, the decor, the crowd, the price, OR the soundsystem - maxium effort put on by all involved.

    Shame we missed most of SDM & TripleM, but with a 1 an half hour journey involved, it had to be done.

    Was audio recorded from the night? I saw the laptop runnin most of the night, so fingers crossed. :razz:

    Liking the pics Stu, I always look retarded in photos tho lol :twitchy:

    I had a really good night, zinc and dynamite was amazing!

    I thought the sound system was a bit dodgy, yes it was loud, but not too clear.

    Maybe it was because i was dancing next to the right hand stack all night but I actually prefer the system in ponana...

    Valve should be sick!
