Autonomy came to an end after nine years, and I returned to DJ one more time.
After a long period as “resident guest” at Autonomy, this was my last set of that run (I’d return one more time, but more on that later).
Another trip to Autonomy, for my last DJ slot of the year.
I was back to DJ at Autonomy for the first time in four months. The break has been nice, actually, and the absence of my fellow residents meant that I did the whole four hour set myself. It was something of a marathon, and indeed a mightily odd night, but I got through it ok […]
It’s a shame I wasn’t quite fully with it on Saturday night, actually – as Autonomy was fantastic fun. An unexpectedly bonkers dancefloor, who danced to pretty much anything I threw at them. And it was good fun to be DJing alongside DJ Deaddancer and Gadgeeuropa, too.
It was one of the best nights at Autonomy I’ve had since I started DJing there. It was the third birthday of Redeemer (what, already?!?), and so was pretty busy anyway, and was made even better by a good turnout for Autonomy itself. It took a little while to shake down and get the dancefloor […]
It was a much better night than I’ve had there in some time – partly due to the sheer number of friends that were out – and for the first time in a while I was happy with my DJing, too – no errors, and more importantly, a packed dancefloor for much of the time. […]
My first night there in 2011. Despite the gigs in Sheffield and London taking many of our regulars, it was a good turnout, and the night shot past.
Saturday saw us in Leicester for Autonomy, which was good fun (and a hard-dance-free zone, too)
A night that seemed to pass by in a flash. Autonomy was good fun, nice and busy despite the awful weather, and DirtyK played an impressive forty-minute set that had the biggest crowd I’ve yet seen for a gig in the venue. I had intended on playing a noise-heavy set, and went broadly that way […]
Saturday saw me back in Leicester again for Autonomy, which despite being the weekend after Infest and Reading/Leeds, was surprisingly busy and a whole lot of fun. Next month sees Dirty K playing live and Autonomy will be billed as a “noise special” (i.e. less hard dance and more industrial/noise). Anyway, back to this month:
Saturday saw us back in Leicester, for my return to Autonomy after a couple of months off. It was a much busier than expected night, too, and while I felt a little rusty on the DJing front, I hit my stride in the end. Oh, and Concrete Lung’s Recovery Position sounds fucking awesome really, really […]
A good night overall, a few technical niggles notwithstanding. Either way, great to see everyone, and also to catch up with the guys from Inertia for the first time in what feels like a long time! There are various photos from the night online as always, click on the photo to the left. It was […]
Autonomy was reasonably well-attended, as well as the usual suspects. Not the best DJing I’ve ever done – frankly at points it just didn’t work out – but I got it sorted in the end, though, and the reaction to some new stuff played was immensely surprising (in a good way!).
Saturday saw us head to Leicester for the first time in a while, for my return to DJing at Autonomy after a few months away. It was a very long night, but a great one. It was heaving, Skinjob put on a good show, and I think my DJing went ok, even if I had […]
Autonomy was the first time that I had ever used my laptop (and Virtual DJ) to DJ with, rather than my CDs. With intelektchrist elsewhere, and our less-experienced cohort DJ Annie [Candy Acid] initially unavailable also (she agreed to assist for part of the night in the end), I was left with the prospect of […]
The night was a frustrating one to say the least. A difficult crowd, and a couple of DJ sets where I simply felt I was awful, and just about nothing worked. Oh well, these things happen.
What an odd night last night turned out to be. Autonomy was, so it felt, busier than it has been in a while (I suspect Leicester Pride yesterday had something to do with it), and the crowd were certainly up for dancing. As for my DJ sets, the setlists are below, and for once I […]
The first half of a barking weekend that saw me at Sonisphere the following day…
Last night’s Autonomy/Redeemer was exhausting, immense fun. In a change to the usual I was DJing alongside Berrega, and I reckon we did pretty well – a good and enthusiastic crowd were in and they responded best to some really surprising stuff.
