just back in tokyo after a couple of incredible days at labyrinth. completely exhausted due to lack of sleep and the intensity of the experience. full report to come later on when i gather my thoughts, then find some time and energy. for now all i'll say is that it somehow managed to be more special, more powerful, more beautiful, more intense and more inspirational than last year. i really am in shell shock at the moment. most aspects of the party were as close to perfect as you could hope for. the music was amazing, the sound system was out of this world, the mountain setting was just right, the weather was good etc... personal highlights (all 10/10 performances, but many other artists were pretty close to pefect too) were peter van hoesen delivering a livepa that was on a whole different level, function absolutely destroying the place as it went to dusk, and, of course, dozzy's closing set. all 7 hours of it... (and before you ask, no, it was not recorded).
thanks to everyone for a truly unbelievable couple of days. and most of all, respect to russ for realising his vision. see you next year.
