Chris C - Can U Feel The Bass (Andy Farley Remix) (File, MP3)
Cockney geezers, beautiful Italian women, posh guys, aging hippies, towering Scandinavians, Home Counties teenagers in the big city for the night, fist-pumping Northerners, wide-eyed Japanese ravers dancing with geometric precision. Even some Americans like me! And Antipodeans. Lots and lots and lots of Antipodeans. Ozzies, Kiwis and Saffas everywhere. Really if I am being honest with myself I have to say that it was the Antipodeans who played such a big role in making the scene what it was for me.
However, where I came into contact with the Antipodean community was through the club scene and to this day I never really understood why so many of them came to be involved with the scene — I guess just through word of mouth? Their good humor, friendliness and love of a party helped give the scene its distinctive charge. This is definitely something that I saw in London when I would go to places that were playing more classic Detroit techno — good music, good fun, but not the same wild abandon that you would get at somewhere like a Frantic MP3) a Logic, where there would be moments where you would stop to catch your breath and you could look around and see everyone everywhere dancing.
This is not to say that the Antipodeans were the only ones to really go wild, just that in my opinion because there were so many of them they helped to set the tone for what these parties were like, and which were in turn a reflection of the best aspects of their culture — fun, unpretentious, and energetic.
Sometimes it felt like you were dropped into a whirlpool at the beginning of the night, and then spat back out at lights on, exhausted but happy. The music itself inspired this — the relentless pulse of high velocity kick drums, the regularity MP3) the structure of intro, bassline, riff, breakdown, snare roll, drop, meant that you were in a sense reliving the same moment over and over with the rest of the crowd, a repetitive crescendo through the night.
It was easy to make an easy friend in the chillout room or at the bar, have a quick laugh, and then go on with your night. Some of my best friends I met through the scene, especially from the Banging Tunes message board — people I still consider close friends 20 years later. Of course there were complete idiots too, and even people who were just straight-up bad people too, but in general it was a fun scene populated by fun people.
