Closing Party Review: Carl Cox The Revolution Recruits, 18th September

From 'OH YES, OH YES' to 'OH NO!'


By Spotlight

As I write this I'm listening to 'Dry Your Eyes Mate' by The Streets, crying my eyes out. How has the season gone so fast? What happened? Did I have enough fun? When can I be reunited with Coxy in Space!? 

These are all valid questions that I suspect many a clubber in some kind of weakened mental and physical state asked themselves as they fell out of Space at some point on Wednesday morning. With so many more good parties around this season, I fear I've neglected Coxy and the crew at Safehouse Management a little, although I'd like to think I made up for it a little on Tuesday night. 

The closing lineup has remained similar for a few years now, with the likes of Sneak, Yousef, and Dice in particular regularly featuring at both the party and in my 'top 5 DJ's to techno-stomp to' list - not as official as say the Top 100 DJ's list that is so expertly compiled, but I'd certainly like to think it's more credible. After witnessing Carl Cox and Loco Dice interview each other at the IMS in May, it's pretty clear they have a very relaxed relationship both on and off the decks. It's tough to pick out highlights when presented with a lineup like this, but obviously the Cox and Dice back-to-back session to close out the Discoteca came top. They take that friendly attitude towards each other that you see in the video (link above) and bring it all - banter included - to the party. Feeding off each other, vibing, and perhaps trying to go one better than one another  with each track, the guys end up throwing together old and new tracks to celebrate what has been another fine season at Space. Keeping true to form with Coxy's love of playing funk and soul at his Sands parties, the classic 1987 track Joe Smooth 'Promised Land' was dropped at around the 8:30am mark as the last track and inevitably sent those still able into a state of euphoria.

Earlier on though and the discoteca was rammed and raving from the off, with Coxy dropping Jon Rundell's 'Dalston Sunrise' from the Revival EP, released in July mongst others, as Jon Rundell himself was mastering the Terraza room. Followed at the half two mark by scouse resident Yousef, with his trademark elbows-raised-messing-with-the-effects style, that is always so apparent when he's enjoying himself. Sporting his 'Circus X' tshirt in celebration of 10 years of his own Liverpool based party, Yousef took things up a notch by dropping some tracks of his soon to be released second artist album, followed DJ Sneak with one of the tunes of the season 'I Get Deep'. 

A shame really to have come back to the Terraza at roughly the 6am mark to find the room closed, but with Loco Dice and Carl Cox handling things very nicely, all was not lost. I've already spoken about the earlier discoteca sessions, but late on it was one of those neverending "this is a tuuune!" moments. 'The Tide' and 'Shake and Pop' were favourites - not new, but a sure fire way of grabbing a rooms attention.

So, back to the tears it is for me, as we have to wait until next season, a good 6 or 7 months away, to see the return of Carl Cox and the Revolution parties in whatever form they come back in. Already counting down the days.
