Electronic Music other: STFU Athens: thoughts & material
Written March 07 2008 , Tags: rules, STFU
I don't know how succesful the event was since i've never been to an STFU before and since i was the one organizing it. The reviews i got so far were good ones, but i don't think someone would come to me and say that the event sucked even if it did, so i don't have any unbiased reviews so far.
However, i know i had lots of fun, even though i was very stressed the whole time and i noticed a number of people having fun as well. I heard a ton of good music on a relatively good sound system, i danced my legs off on Saturday (the venue was closing normally at 4am and we kept it open until 5:30am), met some really cool people and gathered lots of useful experiences. To sum up it was one of the best events i've been to.
We had some problems with the recordings so there are some hiccups and level inconsistencies, but if you can bear with these i think you'll find lots of awesome music in them:

I have SROE's set as well and it will be available once it's been approved by Jen. Mine and the VC vs PJVM sets were seriously fucked up so we won't share them.
I didn't take any pictures but i know Mark and some other people did, so please upload them soon and let us see!!
Cheers to everyone who showed up, i hope i see y'all again soon.
plus: to anyone who is interested in organizing an STFU event, if i could do it half-decently then anyone can do it. so, if you feel you're up for it just come over to link and we'll help you make it happen. Yes, you too american fellaz
sounds like another success for stfu
ill do another one some day
Listened to most of Lemos's set and now checking Quips - you sound pissed Ben. Pissed but funny!
"Let me see those hands in the air."
it was frigging awesom! i had tons of fun, met a lot of new people, and the venue was the shiznit! i managed to meet the yellow jackets on the plane to athens, so that made up for the luggage i lost on arrival (but which magically showed up at dmitris place where i was sleeping). The epople coming to the venue didn't seem to be down with body mobility, but we got some wicked dancing on saturday (and i danced through all the sets anyway .
it was ridiculous fun.
put up my set, just ignore the first track altogether please. triggered stuff when i shouldn't have. then aborted. ooops.
oh and upon more listening- those dropouts weren't on purpose, i need a new laptop.
when i get home.
more - from 42:50 on, it's all jamming, so sorry for the questionable bits.
dropouts in recording cause of bass????
yeah i think so jen, or stupid leopard dropouts.
