03/05/08 Sven Vath @ QClub
Eclectricity are proud to welcome Cocoon, Sven Vath`s Frankfurt techno brand to the Que Club in Birmingham with an unmissable all-star line up.
The Q Club was particularly busy for this bank holiday event, and drawing a good crowd is essential if the vibe in this massive venue is going to be any good. Thankfully the amphitheater was heaving, even the surrounding balconies seemed to be filling up with more than usual array of peeps looking for a bit of space to chill and sit down. Sven Vath put on an truly slick set, marred only by a brief loss of sound which was soon rectified by the quickest moving sounds techs I’ve ever seen.
Spectrum were hosting the chapel with the likes of Pete Jordan, Switch and Stanton Warriors kicking big lively breakbeat sounds. I for one preferred the closer friendly feel of the chapel area, I felt more connected with the music. Don’t get me wrong, the amphitheater is a truly impressive space, and the crowd did it justice by filling it up with the massive amount of energy it requires to feel good. It’s just that I sometimes find that amount of space a bit disjointed unless it is totally rammed and I can’t move.
