Review by The__Van

The__Van The review I had written got deleted so I'm gonna blast through to the good stuff. Carini > Sparkle > Sloth sequence is a great opener. Maze is the highlight of the set. It's got some ferocious action. Guelah is always nice to hear and I wish it wasn't such a rarity these days. MMGAMOIO > Sample > Rift are played reasonably well. No complaints. Sleep tends to kill the momentum of a set no matter where it's placed and that's still true here. And I love it when Caspian closes a set.

Now, *cracks knuckles* Set 2. I'll start off by saying you need to listen to this set in it's entirety. Boogie begins the set with a total dance party! Rhythmic as hell and funky to boot. The groove perfectly dissolves into a spacey transition into Twist. Twist is fairly average but has a nice patient build up from Trey. McGrupp up next is a serene cool down from Boogie and Twist. Page shines and Trey interweaves his guitar with the keys. Then it settles down into some ambience. Halley's closes the set with an absolute rager of a jam! Seriously great stuff here. Axilla and Taste close the show with strong versions of each.

I can't say enough good things about that 2nd set. Terrific hour of music there. Overall the show has an ok first half but an amazing second half.
