DJ Reid Speed @ Studio B - December 31, 2008 (CRED)
On New Years Eve I ended my two week long dance-less streak, arriving to a very full and fun Studio B whose NYE bash was in full swing at 1am. Sinden was already on, but I didn't really have a chance to get pay attention because I lost my jacket and was spent the first hour I was there looking for it. I temporarily gave up the search so I could hit the floor and attempt to enjoy the music. The timing was great as I was able to catch Jokers' of the Scene's set right from the beginning which was a wonderful, upbeat, thumping, crunchy, well-balanced mix of mostly new stuff - I recognized maybe 5% of their set which is becoming more and more rare.
After Jokers, Reid Speed played a good set that was a lot of fun incorporating some current electro with old favorites (ie Prodigy), some Nintendo samples, and total oddballs (Diddy/whatever he's calling himself now - Bad Boy For Life) which worked surprisingly well. The ridiculous bill for the evening was far from over, but the dj (who I didn't recognize) after Reid's set started playing a lot of Jungle which I wasn't into, so I called it an early night (for New Years Eve anyway).
