Marc's Public Blog - Clubbing and Trance
Ok, so I like Techno, more specifically Trance. Unfortunately, the US, it's let's just say... a bit behind in that department. If you ever hear such music on the radio, or even in the street, let me know (for instance, in Australia, I heard great Techno in even a waterslide park of all places).
Anyway, at least, with San Francisco nearby, I've had some opportunities to see some great DJs, even if at least at 1015, I've often been disappointed by what they played compared to their usual sets (it's been better overall at Ruby Skye in the recent years).
Over time, I've seen many of my favorite DJs across the world, whether it was locally, in New York City, Canada, Australia, and of course Ibiza, and at Halloween 2004, I finally attended some great local parties that proved that you could get the good stuff locally too (even if all the artists came from other countries .
That said, I ended up finding out that some of my favourite DJs who put out great CDs and mixes, unfortunately mixed mostly boring tunes when I saw them live. That was quite a disappointment, but I have been hanging on for the few times where some DJs did actually play great live sets). It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it

I was excited to go see Paul Van Dyk for the first time, but it was only one of many disappointments. The 2 times I saw him at 1015, he showed up ridiculously late (04:00), and quite frankly what he played wasn't that great.|
Later on, in Ibiza, I didn't really like his sets that much more.
I never got PvD. He's always done great CDs like Politics of Dancing, but never played nice trance in the sets of his I went to :(
