|- End of the Good Times for French Raves (10/05/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
You really think the elections changed nothing in France? Now raves will be chased and hunted in one of the only European country where it was possible to organise some. Some laws concerning raves have recently been granted by the French government, but are now suddenly applied by the police. Those new laws mention that any rave must be legally allowed my the local mayor, which is absolutely unreal since the raves took place in woods and empty hills. Who could think that the mayor of 100 homes lost in the country could accept the rave cultures to be shown in his area? How could most of them have any understanding of those futuristic events? How could it be more than a "BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM ..." to them? Those laws are only the straightest way to stop the entire movement.
|Lounge club is still on the line (10/05/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
Contrarily to some ridiculous rumors, the Lounge Club is still open and shakes every week-end with Deep House. What you have to know is that the previous manager (Octaii) has been suddenly dropped by the french owners of the place, and replaced by the current Public Relation manager. All this has been very sudden and, since some other people influenced the change of the management, the mood was a little strange because no one really knew what was happening. Our conclusions are: 1) Octaii did a great job and launched one of the best House clubs in Belgium, only in one year (which is really fast). So we don't really see the reason why he's been dropped out. This text is a tribute to his work.
|City Parade... Stop the rumors! (09/05/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
Yes the headquarters of the City Parade are in Liège. And yes the City Parade will move to Gent in 2003. Why? Of course, it's also because of the name of the event... but it's mostly because it created massive problems in Paris or UK, so the authorities of the City of Liège want to have it only one year over two. It's a question of security, and of good relationships with the shops and the citizens. In a short: Liège 2002, then Gent 2003, then Liège 2004, then ??? 2005, Liège 2006, etc etc etc You want more details?
|Some lost words (09/05/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas Deckmyn - Noctis.com w)|
sorry but the political and news environment has been so dark these days, I've not been in mood to put any news in here. Please point at this: always try to focus on those who want your freedom. Not on those who *pretend* to put any order. Total cleaning is a lie, the world has always been a mess and will forever be a mess... that's my humble opinion. As far as I'm allowed to say this to you: please, share freedom and share respect... the hate is permanently knocking at our door. Please wake up and stand up for more Love.
|Sonik club is now closed (15/04/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
It was the place where plenty of underground and successful deejays came to play for fun only. It was the basic foundation of the recognition of deejays like EMB or Lorenzo, and the residency of almost all the scene: Geoffroy, T-Quest, Pierre, St-Dic, etc... Smallest club in Belgium, Sonik has been created by Eric Stock in 1998, in the same street as Pablo Discobar and Belgica (rue du Marché aux Charbons / Kolenmarkt, in the deep centre of Brussels). Over two levels, the venue seemed to launch well for a long time, since the passion and the energy of the staff was really impressive. But some problems with the neighbours forced them to close the first floor, and only the basement kept on shaking for moreless 100 to 200 people. You saw there so many young organisations, such as the Different Parties or the Surreal Anniversary. Now some strong troubles with the building owner are closing the doors of the club... sad sad world sometimes. Big up to all the former staff of the Sonik club, and be sure they'll be back soon for more crazeeeey nighttrips! Isn't it Eric?

|In the Beginning There Was Jack! (12/04/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
At the start of a track by Mr Fingers or in a deejay mix, you all heard that voice saying "In The Beginning There Was Jack, And Jack Had a Groove, and from this Groove Came The Groove of All Grooves!". It was the voice of Chuck Roberts in 1984... you want the complete lyrics of that genuine House preach? And the Audio? click here:
|Free Rave in France: 10.000 ravers and the police (08/04/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
It seems that the rave scene in France has heavy troubles with its reputation combined with the pre-election countdown. Last year the french government refused a law suggested by one of their main ministers. That law was supposed to force the rave organisers to ask for local public aknowledgement and licences before any event... and it meant the death of the raves. But the lobbying worked well and the law has finally not been voted. The problem now is that the pressure against raves is fast-growing with the feeling of insecurity due to the political campains. Some far neighbours, instead of asking anyone, complained against a recent rave in the Broceliande Forrest (Bretagne)... and at the end of the event, in the morning, the Police arrived with brutality, helicopters, tv reporters, and guns targeting the dog of a kid. So, maybe the organisers should ask before starting a party... ok on that... but that is NO JUSTIFICATION for such a violent behaviour by the police. Those ravers did choose an abandoned field far from every village, and were cleaning the place after the night with 10.000 party people... is it a crime to make a party? (razzia viewable in the archives of the news, www.france2.fr at date 08 April 2002)
|City Parade Date confirmed + free winamp skin (25/03/2002 -- tekst: Nicolas)|
The press conference for the City Parade 2002 in Liège confirms the date to be 22 of June, exactly the same date as previous year. All is basically set to be the most impressive open air event in the Belgian nightlife history. And this year, after the free Open City Party, all will still shake at the Palais des Expositions of Liège (so, not in the several places with all the capacity problems last year). Then, do we dare to expect 200.000 people? Let's warm-up the thing!
