    So whats this all bout en? a legendary system and guaranteed to make you gurn without any drugs! but id like to know peoples experiences with it, their coming to cardiff and wondering whether to go or not as its predominately a jump up event with some dubstep which im not the most keen on tbh, there's a few jungle sets id enjoy but the rest meeeh.

    LEMONDE
    DJ HYPE
    HAZARD
    RANDALL & MC MOOSE *JUNGLE SET*

    Take some ear plugs, find a decent "mid range" spot and enjoy yourself, may as well experience it while you can :)

    good experience need earplugs for definate they should hand them out. speakers make your ears hiss otherwise. very fruity feeling in your stomach its good but don't get to close to the speakers it fucks your head. one of my fav nights was at valve dillinja rinsed out with lemon d

    i know a lot of mates that have gone previously, it destroys your ears, so wear ear plugs.

    dillinga and lemon d raise the levels on their sets, and keep it moderate on the other acts (from what i've heard).

    still i've yet to see hear it live so i'd go for it

    hazard could be epic on valve you might actually get merked by the bass power although his sets have been a piece weak recently

    this majorly fucks your ears, i was actually worried for my health the next day lol. great for bass but sometimes hard to hear other elements of a track. but definately needs experiencing.

    i dont get how the djs can mix tunes when its that loud.

    whenever i dj (in pretty small places compared to anywhere with the valve) i have my headphones turned up almost to the max and i still dont hear them anywhere near as loud as i would like to (and they're hd25s). surely with the valve playing they cant hear what they're cueing up at all? especially with tunes like if we ever with quiet intros.

    do big clubs use headphone amps or something?

    I think most dj's and mc's who don't wear ear plugs must be a bit deaf. Key is to always wear ear plugs. It's a killer if you forget them though

    Tbh, if you're not wearing earplugs at every event you go to you're a bit of a plum.

    New years resolution #2

    Nice edit btw.
    I'm not getting into the whole earplugs debate, I speaks for itself.
    I value my hearing, you obviously don't.
    End of.

    That made me smile.

    Ear plugs are essential for every night imo...if you dont wear them for this it doesnt make you hard, just brain dead.
