Google Maps:

Description: catch phrase – sound manipulators. Vortex was a cracking party, held in a modern but nondescript white warehouse somewhere along Botany Rd. The things I remember were the two huge (2 stories tall – 80Kw apparently) speakers flanking the ground level DJ stand, the technofear lasers cutting through copious dry ice smoke for hours, and the extended version of Apotheosis' ‘O Fortuna’ that seemed to be the tune of the night. The cops came and shut the party down at exactly 6am (not sure of the logic of that), which forced us to the Ravers Playground recovery at Graffiti Hall of Fame, where one of my mates managed to break the gyroscope they had set up!

Description by RP: Enjoyed Midnight Madness. I remember the waterfront fun park was surrounded by a mile of white construction hoarding, which might have been a permanent fixture, but was easy to scale inconspicuously to get in free. Darling Harbour and Ultimo weren’t nearly as developed then as they are now, but I

 

don’t know the promoters managed to pull this party off given the noise it would have generated without any real soundproofing. Inside most of the rides ran well into the early morning, as we spent some time on the roller coaster and bumping around on the dodgem cars during dance breaks. The dancefloor was in a large, solid framed marquee structure that was packed to capacity most of the night with ravers going mental. Plenty of lights, can’t remember any lasers and I think it was one of those parties where sweat dripped from the roof. Lighter piano and vocals music compared to raves later in the year. Guessing maybe a 1000 in attendance – was a bit of a blur!

Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/9ZHxR

Description: I was very excited going to this rave, having read all about Sasha I was most excited about seeing him. When I arrived it was difficult to see him as he was 2km in the air. I might have saw a cigarette glow. He also didn’t play his trademark house, he played breakbeat. My memory of his set is tic tac breaks, lots of bass and the occasional screaming diva. I think he came on after Pee Wee who had just played the best set of his life, so it was a big change in style. Some of the punters seemed a bit bummed. It was a large venue, podiums everywhere with a 3D laser with a dolphin going all night. It was a good night, pity I didn’t get to see the great man up close. catch phrase – mixing technology from the very beginning to the present.

Mix Tape: Abel – Mixed Beans

Description: catch phrase – A flavour worth tasting. RP – Mixed Beans was held near the airport in a modern warehouse complex with a large enclosed courtyard to hang out in. Inside – big sound, lots of lighting and lasers buzzing constantly over the crowd zapping the Mixed Beans logo (amongst other designs) onto a giant overhead projection sheet. There were big podiums on either side of the elevated DJ stand (I spent most of the night on the one to the left hand side which were great to look out over the sea of raving faces from. The party was one of the last of an era in some ways. It was pretty big – probably 2000+ in attendance – and there was an interesting mix of ravers (including a sizeable gay contingent) that wasn't really seen that wasn’t really seen as much after Mixed Beans. All up a great party with an awesome vibe!

Google Maps:

Description: catch phrase – Let the warriors dance. RP- This first party from the Tribal crew was a turning point for the scene to one that focused on hard, speed-driven industrial music. The party itself was held in two abandoned, condemned and very dirty warehouses near the airport, with all sorts of hazards indoors and out (holes in floors, lumps of concrete and metal to trip over, gantries to climb and dance on), but it was freakin’ awesome – with belting music playing well into the morning hours in two rooms. I believe there was a large bonfire outside  outside in the wasteland between the 

 

 

 

 

fence and the warehouses, and the sun shining through grimy windows of the softer room in the morning was magic. Can’t remember any lasers and there was only simple lighting. At a guess one – two thousand punters in attendance. We had to clean brown gunge from ears and nostrils afterwards as the venue was so industrial. Excellent!

Where you walked in upstairs it was the house room, then you walked to this staircase that took you down into this black plastic maze. Took a friend and i a while to navigate through it. Then downstairs there was the hardcore room

 

and a chillout. You could pretty much wander around the whole place all night. They had a room filled with bean bag balls all over the floor and was lit up by fluro light. Seeing as this was the only lit room in the place it made every time you went in there so bright.They had a huge projection of Sonic the Hedgehog on a wall as you walked in.The production as far as the theme went was pretty awesome. Some friends rocked up who were going to another party and we begged them to go in to check it out. They were so glad they did. I saw people doing some really risky stuff that night. How people never got hurt at some these parties i will never know. I’ve often wondered if you could legally do a part there. It is the most amazing space for a party. RP-(I remember the massive Sonic projection very well), however adding that I heard from one of the Tribal team the morning after that all they needed to do was pay off a single security guard to get access to this awesome venue. Bizarre looking up at its massive structure at 9am on a sunny Sunday morning…

Description: It had a really great set up, awesome DJs & the music was loud as. Unfortunately the night didn’t go as was planned. Due to the location of the event the music carried over the cliffs to the homes below & the cops turned up. The first time they did the music was turned off only to then be turned back on when they left. Obviously they returned to completely close down the event. I found out about the devastating news of the fatal car crash the next day along with my parents who when reading the article in the paper

 

 

 

 

& then later seeing it on the news asked if I knew that people took drugs there. My answer was of course I didn’t. (Thirteen) $30 + booking fee.
