Re: The International Breakbeat Awards

be great to say hi of you are

Re: The International Breakbeat Awards

I'm trying to decide whether to go as originally planned, or go to my mates' night, Turbulence. But it's more than likely that i'll see you at the  awards.

Besides, it's only once a year, whereas Turbulence @ Ruby Lo is the last Thursday of every month.

I know, utterly shameless plug, but there you go.  wink

Lisle's set was great and boy was the system turned up!! It was a shame there was not that many people in the room as he was on first

My fave dj's on the night would have to be Phantom Beats who really got the crowd going.

It was odd though to see Freq Nasty being interviewed in the mens bogs!!

See ya at Fabric tonight

Re: The International Breakbeat Awards

Was a great night- everyone seemed to enjoy it Missed J Lisle unfortunately, think I heard the ending of his set as we were coming in.

Glad the likes of Hybrid, Rennie, Ils and Breaks FM won something.

Anyway, that girl standing next to the big nominations screen was me, if ya noticed.
