Something a little more down-tempo, perhaps a bit too much for a Friday but listening to the ASOT 600 compilation is bringing so many classic tunes back and this is one of my faves from yesteryear (2000 to be exact).
So because I haven’t been bothered to put together the video footage from ASOT600 in KL and the fact my blog was running a little dry, I decided to recap some of my favourite songs from ASOT600 so far. There’s only one more week til the celebrations finish in Den Bosch (damn you Hanna for actually going, so jealous).
While my experience of ASOT 600 in KL had been nothing short of phenomenal, I’ll save my thoughts there for another post once I can get the videos ready.
In the meantime, here are my favourite tracks so far, so many bangers and so many IDs!
While I should be dumping my holidays into Lightroom for processing, I can’t be bothered at the moment so instead I’ll do a post about a song discovered while I was overseas and that song is Coldplay’s Paradise (as well as a couple of its remixes). The original is simply a lovely tune and the video clip is definitely something to watch. The song was also played a couple of times while I was in Thailand and the remixes make for a great party tune :D.
Like most of Coldplay’s music, it lends well to being remixed and this tune is no different with Fedde Le Grand putting out a lovely but dark (and somewhat trancey) tune and Mike Foyle in conjunction with X-Vertigo making a very light and cheerful version of the song. Check them out below!
Went through my music folder to find some tunes to run along to and came across a rather old compilation, Global Gathering ’05. This song’s the first track from the second CD and I heard this song again for a long time and just thought wow, this stuff was amazing. Such a mellow and beautiful tune.
Might go through my song collection some more and dig up some old gems. So nostalgic.
Well I got around to uploading all the videos I took from Defqon1 some time last week, equating to about 4GB worth and taking a fair amount of time. The audio is quite dodgy as the microphone on-board the D90 really can’t take that much, have to find some way to jig up some sort of foam to reduce the sound coming into it.
Well Defqon1 was quite a surprise for me and it had completely blown me away in terms of organisation and production as well as atmosphere. It was just a great festival atmosphere with everyone there wanting to have fun and a good time, the security included. I spent most of my time at the red stage as I didn’t really care much for the music and didn’t pay much attention to who was playing when and where. Although the day after, I had wished I caught Alex Kidd and Public Domain, but I’m not too fussed. I had a great time at Defqon1 and would definitely look forward to coming back again next year, although I was taking photos for inthemix, I had a wicked time running all over the place. Being inside the Defqon Red stage was definitely a highlight for me as the view of the crowd as the lights and lasers shone down on them was very impressive. More impressive was the sound at the red stage, it was crystal clear no matter how far away from the front you were, but right up there, the bass punches hard, real hard. I have no idea how one of the security guards at the front managed the whole day and night without ear plugs as it was seriously loud. Overall Defqon1 was definitely a great experience and something you should all check out even if it’s not your kind of music.
Well the videos from the festival are below. I’ll embed a couple and provide a link to the playlist of all my Defqon videos.
