Review: Labyrinth ALIVE.

On Saturday night I had the privilege of attending Labyrinth ALIVE.  As usual, the event was hosted at Trinity, which just so happens to be my all-time favourite place to stomp indoors.
So, what is there to love about  Labyrinth the end of the day? Aren’t all trance parties the same?

The answer is NO! Ask anyone who has attended a Labyrinth event; I’m positive they’ll agree, they are always extremely well organised, awesomely decorated and feature some of the best local and international psy artists to hit Cape Town. Although the queue at the door was rather long, once I entered the venue I knew that it was worth the wait. The music was pumping at full-force, people were getting wild and the visuals… Well, I think the photographs speak for themselves.

As promised, party-goers were visually enticed with tanatalisingly trippy decor and stage design by LumiNOS Decor and Myles Design, as well as a live VJ display from Frank Latter Visuals.

This time around, I was lucky enough to jam my feet off to Sub6,
the Israeli psy sensation all the way from Tele Viv.
His set articulated everything the event stood for, total liveliness and upbeat energy.

The killer lineup also included DJs: Danalog, Stereotype, Feedback and HEADROOM and an insane closing set from Deliriant. The dancefloor was vibrant and buzzing with stomping feet, swaying hips and many smiling faces, all the way through.

Review: Perfect Stranger- Multiverz

I woke up to the exciting news on Friday morning that I was one of three lucky prizewinners for the Psymedia Giveaway I wrote about earlier this week (read it here).  Upon arrival at Trinity, I received an awesome Multiverz hamper (that included 2 tickets to the Event, 4 Perfect Stranger CDs and 2 T-shirts).  What a way to start the evening! Congratulations to the other prizewinners: Cheslyn Oliver and Casey Lynn Curtis. I hope you jammed as hard as I did. ______________________________________________________________ multied Snap shot I took. StereoType had Trinity pumping from the get-go, and warming up the crowd nicely before main attraction, Perfect Stranger, took center stage. The atmosphere on the dance-floor was truly incredible, there were happy faces all around. After 3 blissfully progressive hours, it was Dave Mac’s turn to make turn to keep the dance-floor buzzing ’til the lights came on. And he did. Dave was even kind enough to give the crowd “one last song!” Scott Rennie captured the evening’s events on camera. View the photo’s here.

As you can see, the eye-candy was out of this world. From the trippy decor to one of the best light shows I have ever experienced at a party, well done to ImageMasterBlinkSLAVE and MULTIVERZ for keeping us positively hypnotised.

Just for fun…
Watch a snippet from this year’s Alien Safari: Masqued Ball.
Plusminus had the dancefloor stomping HEAVY with their Harlem Shake remix.

Sure enough, the Harlem Shake craze has died down but  Mike Mike Van As and David Coe (aka Plusminusremain a top players in keeping up with trends and making music that psyks up the dancefloor, both indoor and outdoor.

Find out more about Plusminus in their interview from My City By Night.

Another local psy sensation tearing up the city at the moment is, of course, The Commercial Hippies.

Who are they? 

Anton Raubenheimer and Gareth Tacon.

Since their first release “where dreams come from” on Nano Records received such positive feedback, The Commercial Hippies have been flourishing and flourishing.

Check out their latest release, a remix of the super popular South African band LARK. It’s a personal favourite.
