Interview 10 feat Mike Nicol & Foundation, Melbourne (21/10/06)
Wed 25th Oct, 2006 Event Reviewsin
Interview parties are hard to go past when you’re after a top night out. I know, I have been to many of them and, like I found out Saturday night, no matter what I plan to do, I always end up there.
As mentioned I planned a pizza night with some mates, but when they left and it was only 12am…the thought entered my mind to head to Interview. I am glad, like always… That I did.
When I got there the place was well packed. On the decks downstairs was Foundation. As was his dance moves behind the decks, he played a jacking type style of house and progressive. Combining elements of lots of different genres, it was real dance floor friendly and the dance floor was packed. Mixing was some of the best I have heard for a long time, and a notable track was a breaky remix of Moby’s Go.
During Foundations set, I ventured upstairs to catch some of Blinky. Anyone who has heard him play can vouch that he is one of Australia’s great talents. Playing live on ableton, he has some great fresh material. Up after Blinky was Ben Evans – opening with a remix of Touch Me by Rui De Silva, he immediately had the crowd going mental.
Back downstairs and Julien Reynolds was on. Julien took the reins from Foundation and continued on the electro proggy type sound, yet deeper and more suited to the time of morning it was.
The big feature of Interview parties is the crowd; it is such a friendly up for it crowd… and tonight was no different.
Unfortunately, my quiet night in had turned to early morning and it was time for me to leave. Even though my time was short there it was mad fun. Top stuff guys!
