I used to DESPISE him because lo fi was fucking terrible. 

At boomtown he was playing some solid techno, trance and one breaks track which I am desperate to ID. Unfortunately I didn’t video it because I was dancing my ass off.

As of late Mall Grab has been doing 100% Mall Grab sets. This had a tracklist at one point in time, all Mall Grab songs and most of them unreleased. Might find what you're after in there.
 

 

On another note, I'm doing Hunee's night at Printworks. The clash is real as the two best sets I've seen all year are Hunee at Junction 2 and Orpheu The Wizard at Dekmantel.  Should be a ton of fun.

Hoping crowd is on board too. Definetely don't want to imagine the crowd at Peggy, I'm sure the show will be great but feel like she'll attract a very un-friendly, typical London crowd.

Reiterates my earlier comment about his more recent sets. I’d have been more than happy with this hour. 

I really do need to get me to Sonar soon...

Have my final festival booked in for this summer now, gone for Field Maneuvers. Been wanting to go the past couple years and this years line up is absolutely stellar and love the small capacity - should make for a nice cosy intimate affair which I tend to prefer.

Anyone been before or planning on going?

Boomtown DJ review...

Carl Cox was absolutely banging. The best Coxy set I have seen in a long time. 

There was s couple of DJs in the Tribe of Frog on Saturday afternoon called Jagerhertz. They played techno @bennyhana22 would have loved. Their soundcloud seems to be a little different, but they played Acid / Tribal techno. 

Eats Everything was pretty good.

Skream... what was that?! My god it was bad. Ended with him playing what can be described as a bad Duran Duran b side near the end of his set.

Altern-8 was excellent.

Mella Dee on Friday was pretty good.

Vandal playing Gabber / Hardcore on Sunday night was excellent.

Groove Armada live was a great hour on Saturday. They would be excellent on the West Holts.

I am not into Drum n Bass, bur saw Dr Meaker Live. It was probably as good a Drum n Bass set as I have seen. Live singers etc. Enjoyable enough, but as I say, Im not into Drum n Bass.

skream was genuinely woeful. sad to see because his first album bangs but he has been shit every time I've seen him recently. I fucked off about 20 minutes in and came back for claude von stroke (who I think u recommended to me @FuzzyDunlop?) he was great, anyway.

shanti celeste was prob my favourite techno set of the weekend. I got there on time and was told that the stage was closed, just as I wandered off the sound kicked in with only a few ppl there, and the crowd slowly grew throughout 

also saw vandal who smashed it, and likewise got an unexpected dnb fix but in the shape of brockie + mc det.

Is anybody going to Objekt's live show in London next month? Saw 2/3 of it at Primavera this year and decided it fuck it and decided to trek down from Glasgow to the full show this time and see London for the day. If anybody is around that and wants to go for a pint then send me a PM.

Yes, Jägerhertz are excellent. I think I saw them last year at BT...at least I had planned to! And on Tribe of Frog, which still has one of the best outdoor sound systems I think I've ever heard, they would be superb.

I thought skream stank the place out personally. We left, came back and he was still on. That tune he played near the end of his set, the 80s boyband style tune, what was that? It was so bad, I loved it.

hahaha, yeah I'd headed dowtown by that point anyway. i think by my calculations i was just sprangled rather than skream being good.

Yeah. I saw Jagerhertz in there on Saturday afternoon that was top. I saw someone on Sunday afternoon for about  40 mins.( Maybe OOOD?)

I like it up there, but Im not that into psytrance, I like it - but there is always something a little more appealing!

Aahahaha! Amazing.

Was anyone at Mall Grab at Boomtown? I'd never heard of him before, but quite enjoyed it. He played a tune 1-2 tracks before the end (he was on before Four Tet) that my friend and I both liked. This is probably going to be one of the worst descriptions of a tune ever on this thread, but.... Vocal heavy tune, a guy with a deep voice, saying something about having to get up and getting in a fight or something?? You probably had to be there (and know the tune)....but if anyone can hazard a guess, that's be great

Speaking of which, I ended up feeling mega nauseaus when Four Tet came on. I'm blaming the drastic change in tempo massively spinning me out.

I think nearly all of the tunes Mall Grab is playing in his sets at the moment are unreleased Mall Grab tracks.

That sounds familiar tbh... but not quite the boyband as I remember it!

Bought a ticket for Eats Everything at Lakota in November...they're advertising that they plan to lock away everyones phones for the night. 

An interesting idea although I'm not entirely sure I trust Lakota of all venues to keep my phone secure.
