Review: Judgement Sundays presents 'Full on Ferry'

Each year a pilgrimage to Judgement Sundays is a ritual for thousands of party-goers. This year was no different as Full on Ferry annihilated Eden last night .

By Spotlight

It was my first time at Eden. When you have zero expectations they always turn out to be the best nights.

I arrived at 1am. I always like to go for a stroll through the club to immerse myself in the surroundings. Eden has an old school charm. Music is at the epicentre of what Eden is all about and accessories like fancy lighting and production come second, although it does boast some of the island’s sexiest dancers and bar staff.

To define Judgement Sundays as a trance event is somewhat redundant. The genres are so blurred now. Judgement Sundays was a collaboration of all the goodness EDM can offer.

Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike banged out a sound that had electro lovers fist pumping so hard that it would leave ‘Snooki’ from the Jersey shore to shame. The crowd went absolutely wild when they dropped ‘Madagascar’, ‘One more time’ and an unknown remix of Gotye’s ‘Somebody that I used to know’. This set wasn’t my cup of tea but nonetheless it was a fun experience.

Next up was Ferry Corsten. You can’t help but grin every time you see this guy on stage. He has an infectious smile that can alter your mood in a split second. He played a Ferris wheel of eclectic sounds that included elements of electro, progressive, trance, tech trance and everything else in between. He is one of the very few dj’s that can mold so many genres together and pull off a masterpiece.

Judge Jules was up next. His stage presence is always uncanny to me and I somehow suspect the secret is in the famous Jules spectacles he wears. He has a way of demanding attention and connecting with the audience like no other. He played a culmination of fat chunky techy beats with a generous dose of trance synths and riffs that were simply ear-gasmic. At one stage a plastic like canvas stretched over the dance floor covering thousands of clubbers. It was a whimsical moment that further created unity and euphoria on the dance floor.

Aly & Fila were next in line. They were the epitome of what trance fans waited for. It was a euphoric sound layered with some of the most erotic female vocals I had ever heard. It was simply devine! Punters embraced their sound and a sea of smiles in the crowds confirmed that Aly & Fila created a special moment. They created a lasting impression that will surely see them catapult to many other trance events on the island.

The fun at Judgement Sundays doesn't stop there. With many other guests confirmed including Sied Van Riel, Showtek, John O'Callaghan and Marco V over the coming months, it is going to be one of the best years of trance hosted on the island. Check out the clubbing calendar for further info.
