Thanks for sharing. The write-up and the venue.

Just did a quick search on the venue but can't seem to find anything...yet. Maybe it was a pilot event? Either way, an exciting new warehouse in Bristol can only be a good thing! If you hear of any more events taking place there, report it on this thread!

Edit: if the license runs until January, you can bet a NYE event is on the cards.

Great shout. 

They've got an Instagram up for it, but there's not much on there as of yet! Will report back if I see anything more.

Probably worth sharing that if anyone here is planning to go out - please buy a home testing kit. There have been some increasingly dangerous pills in circulation at the moment which have led to deaths and hospitalisations. This doesn’t look to be a case of people taking too much either, word is that they’ve got a harmful substance in them which is causing reactions to develop in people that take them. Please be safe all and responsible!

Any recommendations on this? First night out went somewhat of a dud based on being a bit nervy on not going with naughties we didn't know.

These guys https://www.instagram.com/pillreportofficial/ advertise their own tests a fair bit https://pillreport.com/ 

Haven't tried it myself, but they do appear to be making an effort to be quite reputable & trustworthy part of the community so would be surprised if there was anything wrong with them. 

I think I used this site a couple years ago, tests went smoothly at the time: https://www.reagent-tests.uk/

Another good source is https://www.drugsdata.org/index.php as they specify the actual strength of the pills and collate test results from all around the world from different testing providers. This can be especially useful for new pill presses that are mass produced in Europe as they get tested very quickly and are updated here. However, if it is an older pill press that has been in circulation for a while then it is less reliable as there will be many different batches of this pill being produced by many different crews.

You can also submit your pills to Wedinos https://www.wedinos.org who are harm reduction/testing service based in Wales and they will give a breakdown of all substances in the pill but unfortunately don't provide specific dose unlike other similar services based in Europe. Be careful filling in the form for submission though, if there is the slightest error on the form then they have to dispose of the sample and won't publish the test results.

The test kits mentioned above are great for determining the presence of mdma however they aren't very reliable for showing impurities (unless a variety of Reagent tests are used alongside them) or strength. But they are definitely still a great harm reduction tool and incredibly simple to use!

Strength unfortunately appears to be the biggest problem in pills currently rather than 'bad batches' which is often how these issues are presented in the media. Always start with just a nibble nowadays, you can always take more but you can't take less.

Hope your next night out is a good'un pal!

This is all v good advice. Tolerance is low, start with a 3rd. Learnt that the hard way at Gala Festival the other week....

Anyone listened to the new Joy O mixtape (album?) yet?

Really loving it so far, feels properly cohesive and just the right levels of accessible and serious.

 

Yeah, super into it. Gets all of his recent explorations under one roof, a few drill instrumentals early on, nice personal excerpts, and sprinkles some classic Pépé Bradock-style deep house through the middle. Lush.

Think I've listened twice now, just flows so well. Vibes are high.

Also realised I've somehow never seen him DJ, even though he's one of my favourite producers. I need to remedy that.

Anybody on here interested in taking 2 Saturday tickets off my hands for Love Saves The Day?

Will accept £100 for the pair face value is £60.

DM me if interested.

Feels like Tokyo World has well and truly taken Love Saves' crown this year judging by the amount of tickets for sale! The Sunday Love Saves lineup is bizarrely unvaried, I feel like there must have been a change in the bookers...or maybe just Covid related money troubles.

(I'll be going all weekend though)

Only doing the Saturday this year but it does seem like they’re missing a few big hitters on the disco side of things. Gutted they couldn’t get Harvey back. The love international stage on Saturday looks great at least.

 

Saw your write up about the the Alfresco Disco night, well excited to try that if it gets more use!

Tokyo World have pulled the stops out this year it seems quite a few people I know are choosing that over Love Saves after both line ups were released. I would do Tokyo World this year but it falls on the same weekend as the Bristol half marathon which I'm doing. 

TW has never appealed to me much before and I've felt that LSTD has always had the upper hand on the line up but not this year.

Maybe Love Saves moving to the downs has got something to do with it? Always felt the downs is a terrible venue for a festival. Flat open and nondescript wish they'd moved it to Ashton Court or just stayed at Eastville personally.

Only just about recovered but what a night. 9pm - 6am fabric shift. Ricardo Villalobos and Craig Richards masterclass.

Craig did a great warm up job but Ricardo really stole the show. He played a proper Ricardo fan set, definitely not one for those on the fence with his DJ style. Lots of highs, lows, and super wonky moments.

With you on this! The Downs is an absolute void. I know they've got the Ashton Court license approved, but that was pre pandemic so I'm intrigued as to whether that's still their plan for 2022. 

I've got WHP shortly after Tokyo so may swerve it, but it is tempting...

Went to E1 in Shadwell last night for the following:

Warehouse:
04:00 - 07:00        Ellen Allien
02:00 - 04:00        Rebekah
23:00 - 02:00        Cormac

Black Studio:
03:00 - 06:00        DVS1
01:00 - 03:00        MARRØN
23:00 - 01:00        Theo Nasa

It felt strange being back there as it was my last night out before Covid. 
Definitely felt like we had come full circle. Such euphoria and all the DJs got cheers at changeover. Was really touching. 
Couldn’t hang on for Ellen Allien as both me and my dance party were so tired. So in the end spent the entire night in Black Studio.
