I think now is time to talk about my future projects. A lot of people have been asking me questions after Time Machine. When is the next party? How many parties are you gonna throw per year? Are all your parties gonna be oldschool? etc. I'll try to explain my project here. Listening To:
First of all, what I want to do is throw raves the way I think they should be. There is a part of oldschool there, as I like things like venue 24h in advance or people dressing crazy. You all already know what I think about the scene, and what I want to bring back. Those of you who have been reading this blog also know I believe in strong promotion, that means 2 party per year, no more. I might move to 3 per year eventually, but not right now. The fact is that I wouldn't throw a party without putting it minimum 3 months promotion in it, and I like to give myself at least a month of organisation before. Another thing I like to do is to have my ideas approved by ravers. Not djs, not other promoters, regular party kids.
Now, those two parties per year both have a different theme. The summer party is Time Machine, Time Machine 2 will be held next summer, unless I can't afford it for some reason or another. The winter party will be my favorite kind of music, happy hardcore. I will also try to explore different themes, and try to make these parties as original as possible. While the Time Machine series is themed around being a replica of older parties, the winter series will be more upfront, both musically and in the themes. This is where I will try all my craziest ideas. I also expect these parties to be a bit more expensive than Time Machine, but with out of town djs, and eventually international headliners. (hopefully)
As for djs, my main goal is to create original and interesting line ups. One thing I'm 100% against are gig exchanges. For starters, I'm not a dj. Still, I wouldn't book a dj just cause he throws parties. This kind of attitude destroys the scene. I'm not saying that those djs are bad, what I mean is that some excellent djs who don't throw any parties don't get as many gigs as they could, while we ear the same people over and over. Again, I'm not pointing any fingers here. As for my line ups, feedback is always appreciated, and I'm always willing to listen to dj demos. One thing's for sure is that I prefer booking djs who don't get as much gigs as they deserve than those we hear every weekend. Oh, and I might play at one of my parties eventually, but not for a while. I've taken this decision for personnal reasons. I have a lot of people who've been asking when they'll hear my spin. For that, I have to be able to play a set that I'm satisfied of. I do not throw parties so I can play, I throw parties so I can have fun with loads of hyped up ravers.
Well, for now, I'm gonna start working on the next party. I'm starting to have a line-up in mind, and I think a lot of you are gonna like it. Web site is coming in soon too. You're all welcome to pm me or leave me a comment on my profile about this, I want to know what the ravers think of what I do. After all, I throw parties for you kids!
