For those that haven’t heard the news (you’re not big enough fans), subbies is being shifted to the terrace once the renovations are complete, usually I don’t care too much about Sublime, but they’ve put on some very impressive Trance acts which I’ve come to enjoy massively. My first taste of live Trance was at Sublime, as a matter of fact, my first experience was seeing Ferry Corsten play in late 2007 which was a very memorable night. Sad to see such a big brand go as they really did throw some great parties.
Despite this bitter transistion occuring due the rapid influx of fluoro fags populating the dance scene, trance is again being put away despite it appearing to gain momentum and popularity. That said however, there are a couple of upcoming events at Subbies in the next few weeks that I might check out if I have nothing else to do. The first is Gatecrasher on this Friday followed by another live set from Australia’s Number 1: Tydi here to release his latest compilation Trance Nation by The Ministry of Sound along with Trance giants Above and Beyond (would have been an absolute killer if they were playing as well). Unfortunately the VSA cruise is on that nigh and depending on how things go, I may try to see what I can make of it. Finally after that is Activa which is a name I’ve heard here and there but not an act I know substantially much about, Alok seems to be excited and I guess that makes me excited too!
That’s it for now, there’s a lot to look forward too and it makes the wait for the big events even shorter and it’s a great warm up to those events.
