Double 0 and Mantra smashed it with another manic Rupture party, manic lineup and indeed timed with the massive release from Theory!
I could only stay until 4am so missed the rest; the night was hectic enough whilst I remained. Double 0 played the opening set when I got down to the venue early in room 1, the bass cave permeating raw breaks and rhythm already ;) The pace of liquid harmonies and refreshing chord progressions mangled with fluid drum rhythms was something that immediately set the scene. The standard rupture banner graced itself behind the decks.
Major Ranks hosted room 2, Room 1 hosted by Blackeye and Mirage. I was bouncing between both rooms to get a equal amount of both sets. DJ Snear was playing oldskool vibes with rave and early jungle.The Untouchables, a duo from Belgium smashed their set shortly afterwards with insane halftime bassline ripples prevailing through the tracklist. It was great to hear their set, coming straight from Belgium with twist. The FDB Project pursued mangled amen breaks and mashed up arrangements over severe basslines. From The Untouchables, the room was packed and rumbling hard, everyone was having a great time.
The highlight of the night was Paradox’s live set in room 1, playing early esoteric and early releases alongside forthcoming exclusives (Metalheadz and more). He played Love Her, No Consensus, the main vocal hook of Crate Logic “Drums Go Like This” repeating at various change overs between breaks and bassline rhythms.
Antidote’s set in Room 2 was the last set I heard and left before Stretch started his. The rhythm of that set was totally different to the rest of the night and the feel of the tracklist was somewhat raw yet velvety, raw breaks and basslines with a smooth feel to the arrangements.. hard to describe!
I was at the back of the room moving to the rhythm and the flow of the vibe set. Check out the label and come down to the next one!
