    Anyone else attend the shrunk down version in Swindon on the weekend? Have to say I was a little disappointed in the amount of rigs that turned up, I was expecting 30+ systems but there ended only been 5 & only 1 played d&b for half the night :( The crowd was pretty damn big though & I meet some pretty tight people bigup to Shaun from Massacre soundsystem nice bloke all round & Dracer I will actually meet you face2face one of these days, next time you got a party give me a shout I'll play for free man!! Also shout to the Risque crew for attending the rave was a bit of a messy one by all (& Rick I'm sorry about the car).
    Also if anyone attends free parties can they give me a name of a system that is fucking collosous in size & sound & has neon purple led lights inside of them that act like a graphic equaliser each time a beat kicks out (it has to be seen to be believed)

    2 be honest (no favourtism cos your on the forum) yours was the best set i heard some shady mixing on the sets b4. You played some nice tracks got people moving + the system kept cutting out so fair play for keeping it going!! Hopefully be playing in Swindon soon myself if all goes well ;)

    jay! aww, u weren't dicks, it's always fukin great to see people enjoyin what ur doin, u know that, such a buzz innit!! as for dj-in at free parties the only advice i can really give you is a. always have records and headphones with you and b. practise blagging a lot!! it's all i ever do, but quite a few know of me so it gets easier as time goes by innit! LOL

    and thanks for the kind words both of ya, it's amazin to talk to people on the net who were there. i think ur the first two i've ever met on the net that were at a free party i played at!! big ups!!..i love free parties!! and let me know when ur playin in swindon, if i'm in the area i'll come down ok!! :)

    Man we'll travel anywhere for a aprty just as long as it's guaranteed to have d&b, a nice rig, & definetly going ahead (otherwise it's a waste of a weekend). Were down in hampshire so Wales is a bit of a mission but could be worth a Road Trip

    It sucks shit that the goverment won't allow free parties to go ahead. I mean why can't the police help hand in hand with the promoters. If police came into a rave & tried taking the equipment while people were there it would be uproar, they know they can't stop them so why don't they try to help keep things secure & safe for the ravers.
    If Tony Blair wasn't so adement on been George Bushe's whipping boy we would ahve a fair easier raving culture. I've been hearing rumours that in America there zero-tolerence on any illegal raves, & if drugs are found in clubs the promoters, club owner, & ravers willa ll get prosecuted. If anyone in America knows that would be handy
