Back from the Baltics

Had a wicked time. One gig got busted, played an unexpected gig in Vilnius and an awesome one at Banzai in Daugavpils on their sick 20K rig, for three hours. It was defintely one of the best DJing experiences of my life. But the whole trip was great. The Lithuanian country side, hanging with my cousin, checking out some really interesting places, meeting great new people – all awesome, with only the minimum of bumps on the road (other than the busted gig). Full report and loads of pics to come. For now, here’s a couple of video clips from Hannah’s phone that y’all can hopefully check, from Saturday’s gig. The sound is distorted to hell, but it might give a feel for the venue and crowd.

Clips zipped

For some reason downloading these 3gp files doesn’t seem to want to work when they have that file extension, so I’ve zipped them. Hope y’all can download zips and play 3gp. If anyone has alternate suggestions, I’d be glad to know them as well. Cheers!

  1. holy crap, it looks crazy (the first clip especially)..

    of course with the sound you would think that people were dancing in the middle of a war zone.

    what were you playing?


  2. I think we figured out that was right near the end of my set. The first clip is definitely Front 242’s “Don’t Crash” at about +10 (chimpunk free since it was from cd) but I can assure you it sounded much less warzoneish in person. I played it on a hunch (having played nothing very industrial before that), and they went nuts. So I finished off with Jacek Sienkiewicz into Doubting Thomas. I’ll try and put together a full tracklist later, but for now I’ll just say that I started with Skinny Puppy’s “Love” (this isn’t really very industrial or harsh at all – kinda ambient) into Aroy Dee’s “Boracic” into the T.O.M. Project and they liked all of that. They were up for pretty much everything I chucked at ’em, although some of the crowd definitely prefered house and some definitely prefered techno.
