The second release for 2012 is something that has been a long time in the making, and Cinematic seem proud to unleash Alex Celler’s staple release for the label “North London Cutz” with a heavy selection of remixes for 2012 courtesy of Martinez, Kabale und Liebe and Soy Mustafa.
Seth Troxler and Carl Craig grace Milan with their presence…
The three hour train journey into Milano Centrale gave us plenty of time to sike ourselves up for the night with a few beers and plenty of talk about music, DJs and festivals. Not that anyone would need siking up for a night with these two, but it’s all part and parcel of the night out.
Once we finally arrived in Milan and got a few rum and cokes from a gelateria, we made our way down to Magazzini Generali and started loosening up to the laid back sounds of the resident. 1am and Seth take the helm, seamlessly following on from where the resident left off, warming the crowd with some deep laid back grooves and real quirky elements. Building and building the feel of his set with such class. Within no time at all, Seth had the whole place rocking to his deep quirky style, which resonated through the crowd and left plenty of groove swinging in every corner of the club. From time to time Seth took the crowd down small momentary paths of a slightly melodic style with plenty of drive, which seemed to blend perfectly back into that quirky style, being absolutely relentless in keep things swinging. The crowd was loving it and so was Seth by the looks of things.
Around 3am Carl Craig takes to the controls, where he seemed adamant to completely surpass Seth by driving the music even harder with record like Martinez’s deeply driven “Mzuzu”, whilst blending in some great uplifting moment such as a remix of Inner City’s “Good Life”. Carl‘s hard driven session wasn‘t too much for the faint hearted and was well received by the jumping crowd. His closing piece especially went done well; “String’s of Life”.
But it has to be said that Seth Troxler really added something else to the night, with what can only be described as an excellent selection of music perfectly mixed together.
