I know its been a few days since the show but i have been busy haha. First off, it was a great show. They played all of their massive tunes and a couple of wonderful surprises. The sound was a little disappointing but from what I know Circa just got a newish sound system and they needed to work some kinks out of it. A “source” told me that the sound could have been fixed in a couple of minutes but that would have meant stopping the jams… and we all know what happens then (hint: no music = fail). I was a little surprised that only half of Chase and Status were there, specifically the Chase half haha but I don’t think it really matters much for this kind of show. I was pleased to hear a little bit of dubstep thrown into the mix but it wasn’t on for long enough haha. I also enjoyed the tracks from Rusko, Noisia, TC, Caspa etc.
A lot of people hate on MC’s at dnb shows but to be honest they do a heck of a job working up the crowd and I don’t care what anyone else says. Much respect to the MC’s (please stop with the “smack it” though!)
At the very end of the set Chase dropped a siiiiick surprise. If you were there then you know what I am talking about and if not then take a little peep here. It isnt the best quality but you get the idea. Also i can see myself lulz.
All in all it was a ridiculous night and I very much enjoyed Lush, Chase & Status and Marcus Visionary. Looking forward to seeing them again.
One Last Video here but it isnt from the same show…
p.s. circa had the most intense searches before a show that i have ever been too haha
Biiiiig news for all you dubstep fans out there. Two of the founders of the genre are coming to Toronto this weekend!
14-JUN-09 SKREAM + BENGA @ WRONGBAR 19+ $18.50
Skream was one of dubsteps first and most prominent producers. He began producing music at the age of 15 (using fruity loops) and claims to have roughly 1400 songs in varying stages of development!
Benga is a dubstep producer from Croydon, South London, and is part of the Tempa and Big Apple Records label. He has been described as an important name in the development of the dubstep style for his fusion of the already existing South London dubstep sound with the newer East London born grime sound, and was also one of the first dubstep producers when the style was emerging in the early 2000s (thanks wiki)

There are whisperings of At The Drive-In sorting out their past differences and getting back together…
“I wouldn’t mind it [a reformation]. It might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we’ve dealt with already and I’ve apologised for a lot of things I’ve said and the way it ended… we’ll see what happens.”

This is the video for Rjd2′s “Work It Out” from ‘The Third Hand’ (XL Recordings). The video features Bill Shannon, who was born with a degenerative hip condition that means that his legs cannot carry all of his own weight. Due to this he developed his own way of moving through life on his crutches. Rjd2 plays several extras which you can spot throughout the video. The video, directed by Joey Garfield, is one continuous single shot for the length of the song.
