Review: Void Presents…Lost Frequencies – Return to the D

void_presentsMar09

Just got back from a full-on Techno assault hosted by Void at  Yauca Sports Bar – a heretofore unheard of little spot on Dundas W. The boys, Rouchos and WestsideWax, rented a Dynacord system for the night and the place was pumpin! I’ve heard Dynacord in action at larger venues but this was the first time I’ve heard it used in a smaller space. I would’ve liked to have arrived earlier for the soundcheck just to see how the rig can be configured…

Yauca is like most bars in the west-end, long and narrow. However, with 2 floors of dancing this place has promise – I think I saw a flyer advertising a free DnB weekly there on Fridays….

Over the course of a couple of hours I was treated to a great cross-section of techno expertly mixed on 3 decks with real honest-to-god vinyl!

And, discovered the versatility of the Behringer DDM4000 DJ Mixer. Usually I am nonplussed when it comes to Behringer’s dj series, however I was impressed by the layout and functionality of this beast of a mixer. Of particular interest to me was that the mixer has 2 freely assignable and, BPM-synchronized, FX engines allwoing for more on board control than what I’ve played with so far.

Although the turnout was a little sparse I have to commend Void for stepping up and putting on a quality show that both heads and the non-initiated could groove on. A free party with Dynacord and Techno talent…more please.

Here’s a sampling….

Andreas Marouchos – Fight Club Promotional Mix (60 minutes)

WestisdeWax Teaser Mix – Classic Techno, Chicago House, Breaks

I think they recorded the night – there were some gems played that had me sniffin’ around the record bags lookin’ for a glimpse 😉

  1. That Andreas Marouchos mix really is more Electro House than Techno (well half of it anyway). By Fight Club, do you mean it’s from the label Fight Club or is there a certain venue wherever you are with the same moniker? My mate Simon runs Fight Club the label over in Sydney and yea they cater mainly to Electro House and Breaks (or whatever constitutes Breaks these days =S).

    Nice post btw!

    • To the best of my knowledge, Rouchos just chose “Fight Club” as the name of the mix. Can you post up the link to your pal’s label? I’m always looking for new tunes!

  2. Hey Ryan thanks for your kind words. I sure I do see you out on the 18th. Anyway regarding Sutra congratulations; last nights event has been clearly plagued by the high winds and rain in Toronto. I have been attending Sutra for years and now that the traffic will be higher so keep up the good work.

    Below please find “Savitri”, a set sans all the usual trickery, fast pace and crunching beats. In its place please enjoy eclectic Funk, Tech-House, Disco tinged tunes and Progressive and Deep House grooves. No fancy tricks, no effects; just a bleep and a bloop from a deeper space. The mix starts off considerably lighter, but takes a few twists and turns along the way to make sure that listener glides into and out of genres. I hope you find the versatility and technical prowess pleasing.
