In 1995 we put together a party and called it 'Totally Inta Stella Rave' a bit out there, but 'rave' wasn't even a word people knew then. Drum&Bass didn't really exist either. But Jungle did. So we armed up with the best beats on offer and booked the Westend Picture Theatre as the venue. All was going well until 2hours before doors opening - the fire dept boys turn up and tell us there's no way we can hold a gig without all the proper consents. So in under 2 hours, we unpacked all the gear and reloaded it into the Chinese horticultural hall round the way. Only problem was, it was 1/4 the size of the Westend and we had about 8 or 900 people turning up. What a night. 15k of sound in a room the size of a country hall with more people than we could fit. in. The walls and roof were dripping with sweat and by the end of the night we had almost destroyed the place. Needless to say, we never used that venue again. This is my mix from the night and goes out to the legendary Mechanism. Enjoy!
