On Saturday 10th Oct I played at the opening party for Jimi Cheng’s new club The Century in Second Life. The club is a compact chrome and glass box on the top floor of a tower block with a distinct lean to it, so the dancefloor falls away to one corner! For the opening set, Jimi asked for “warm and sweaty house or techno” so I did my best to pull out some of the warmest basslines and sweatiest grooves I could find! As usual there’s a mix of old and new here. DJ Assassin’s “Face amongst the crowd” is a favourite old house track with a dark and steppin’ flavour. Then there’s lots of newer stuff from Motor City Drum Ensemble, Fred Everything and Scope, while the pick of the bunch for me has to be the playful, upbeat funkiness of “Last Train Out” by Dave Barker.
Thanks again to Jimi for the invitiation to play and congrats for getting the new club up and running. Big thanks also to everyone who came along and made it a great night!
