Soul:ution @ botw 18.02.11

It was a very tired MischiefMaker that shuffled down to calendar regular Soul:ution on Feb 18th, a night following Ex:ample 2nd Birthday bash at the Roadhouse no less! Some of us didn’t get to bed until afternoon was peeking through the window. Others didn’t find the bedroom at all. I was hoping Soul:ution would revitalise my knackered frame & resurrect a wear soul. I wasn’t to be disappointed

Marcus Intalex is obviously enjoying himself (as much as his old face will allow!) when I arrive. BOTW crowd are warming nicely. I have shot Marcus many times over the last 10 years. He still sounds fresh: as interested & involved in the music he clearly loves as he was 21 years ago when his career began. Tonight (unusually) I put my camera away for a dance down the front!

This months’ first guest Jubei (Metalheadz / Critical / Coded music) is up and his set builds slowly in intensity. I notice the dazed & damaged figures of Dubphizix & (a very) Skeptical shuffling into the building & straight to the bar. Example Party casualties soon pile-up with other Soul:ution regulars DJ Silver, Strategy & MC Longman

These tired old limbs are finding it hard... until that is DJ Fierce (Quarantine Records) steps up. He immediately takes the tempo up a notch or three. He changes tunes, kicks & whips the air in enthusiasm! It quickly becomes infectious. His energy is evenly matched by the crowds. It’s not long before my camera is put away again & I’m back down the front! DJs Marcus & Jubei are both loving his raucous set as much as anyone! DRS (by the end of the night) thanks almost everyone in the place before declaring that he has “never ever been as pissed as this holding down a mic!”, but we think that conclusion might just have been reached anyway!
