    duno whether it was eksman or not but from what i could c, foxy kept asking hype to reload and when he didnt foxy got a bit pissed of and tried to do it himself (that might have just been me being a muppet but thats what it looked like). i remember foxy telling hype to carm down and seeing hype making a wanker sign at foxy and then the next thing i knew there was no dj lol...pretty weird.
    foxy even went on the decks while waiting for blackmarket...bit of a shambles really,

    Knew this event would end up being a dissapointment, shame as it has so much potential, biggest of the big on NYE and all. Whats the sound like in the venue? Cant imagine drum and bass working in a huge arena like that, sound quality (regardless of system) and impact of the mixes is definetly hindered by big arenas and high ceillings, even when they have the function one in brixton academy it dont sound that great (they need to get the rig the prodigy tour with in there for a drum and bass rave :D). what was chase and status on six decks like? could imagine it going either way TBH. For all those people dissapointed with NEC, spend your money on the custard factory next year if your in the midlands. One of dances i've enjoyed most in years. Valve soundsystem sounding crisp (comparisons are being made to how it sounded at mass in brixton) in secret factory warehouse under the digbeth arches. A.I and lowqui on some sick midnight set, couple of old school jungle orientated sets (pulp fiction sounded large). Then doc scott came on killing it with an amazing selection (first time i've heard the hornet by badcompany dropped in a while, I went fucking mad), then scratch perverts doing some sick hip-hop business (Ante up remix by MOP had the room going OFF), leaving bryan g and lemon D to finish off with some smooth grooves (new critical dub tunes sounding amazing), All this b2b loads of gorgeous ladies to dance with, no dickheads or trouble at all everyone I spoke to was sound, and a good breaks/electro set out of DJ yoda while I was chilling away from the drum bass made for a BADBOY new years eve. Highly reccomended.

    didnt sound like they were using 6 decks at all. might as well of been 3. the sound system was a lot better than previous SV events ive been to though and the atmosphere was pretty good as well. 3.50 for a bottle of carlseberg though lol

    ha ha right at the end of cornwall as well. yeah it was an organised coach by eventz travel.

    used to be allowed to smoke on there but cos of the smoking ban ruining it for every1 we were only allowed to smoke when we stopped.

    some1 almost got kicked off near bristol cos he tried smoking in the toilet on 3 different occasions. he was proper fucked as well as being a complete dickhead. aparently he was rolling around on the floor at 2 o clock outside the hardcore room lol.

    "or where you all saucer eyed still ;)?"
    dont be silly ;)

    jealous as fook mate I would have love to bin at a free party on nye unfortunatly I dont think the manchester sound systems did one. I aint been to one since the end of last year either. For some reason manc systems seem to be strugglin to get a big party goin with out police ruinin it. Which is makin it harder for ppl to get hold of the partyline It's a shame aswell cause the guys who run the DnB system know how to do a rave just ask someone from manchester about the "mental hospital rave" Sorry for ramblin on with my self
