Paul Van Dyk – Home (Cosmic Gate Remix)

Just heard this song again at Godskitchen’s Boombox tour in Sydney and absolutely loved it, I felt like I had to share.

Lyrics:

The people poured their concrete floors,
And built their churches and their walls,
They painted pictures of their hopes and fears on them.

A single look, a tiny touch can change the system, it’s enough,
And I can see it all in you love.

And your eyes explode with light, explode with light, I’m covered in your light.

My home is where you are,
In every beat, in every beat we’re closer.
My home is where you are,
In every beat, in every beat we’re closer.

They fashioned streets out of the rock,
And struck up statues to their gods,
And hung out flags on every corner they made.

We are charged, spoiling to go,
You bring me back back to where I’m from,
A billion molecules all lined up.

And our hearts are pulsing with life, Pulsing with life, we’re pulsing with life.

My home is where you are,
In every beat, in every beat we’re closer.
My home is where you are,
In every beat, in every beat we’re closer.

Upcoming events

Despite still being a while away, I am absolutely pumped for a few upcoming events with the next event just over five weeks away. It’s been a while since the last Trance event due to it being winter with the exception of We Love Sounds (more like We Love Armin) but the Spring/Summer festivals are making their way here soon. So, three events in 4 weeks with Cream presenting Ferry Corsten’s Twice In A Blue Moon supported by Giuseppe Ottaviani followed by DEFQON1 Maximum Force Readiness and finally Godskitchen’s Boombox to top it all off.

First, Cream. This’ll be the first time that I’ll see Ferry Corsten play a live arena type show, typically I’ve seen him at Sublime (as a matter of fact twice) and he’s always delivered a stunning show with a smooth set mixed to perfection. I have wanted to experience Full On Ferry for myself but I guess this will be the closest I can get for now and I’m happy enough that Ferry’s playing a show at the Hordern. I think Ferry’s bringing down a vocalist so it’ll make it something a bit more special than a typical DJ only set, similar to Armin Only in 2008 which absolutely blew my mind. To be honest, I’m not too knowledgeable about Giuseppe Ottaviani but from what I have been told, he’s a class act, so it should be a great night.

The next event on the calander is a only a week after Cream and that’s going to be the biggest hard dance music event in Australia. It’s DEFQON1 and it’s on and island… Surrounded by water! (no shit) I gotta say, this event is a bit of a mixed bag for me. I’m not the biggest fan of hardstyle music but it’s just going to be such a massive event that I have to see it for myself, the other thing that swayed me is the fact that it’s multiple stages including a hard trance and hardcore stage which should give me some variety once I get sick of the doof doof of the hardstyle. No doubt about it, it’ll certainly be an interesting event and something that intrigues me, I’ll reserve judgement until I actually experience the thing.

The third and final event that’s confirmed for me is Godskitchen for 2009. This time round, they’re bringing the whole boombox tour down under and it should be a spectacular show. For those who don’t know what the boombox show is it’s a massive stage with an appearance of 8×3 cubes with images projected across the front of the stage. It’s a contraption designed by Exyzt, the same mob that created Etienne De Crecy’s cube show which was demonstrated to us at Future Music Festival (Youtube it for the wows). It certainly will provide a spectacular show, unlike the crappy highschool standard production of Godskitchen 2009 which was plagued by poor promoting, ticket sales, production and sound quality. It was just a bad combination and if Future Entertainment think they can pull a stunt like that again, Godskitchen will surely be boycotted for the future years. Poor ticket sales is no excuse, put on a good party and the ticket sales will roll in. ID&T still managed to put on an amazing show at Trance Energy despite less than spectacular ticket sales.

That’s it for now, I can’t wait for the first event to come.
