jake fairley/james holden / drake underground, toronto / 13/09/07

Techno in Toronto has been bleak all summer, but last night made up for it. The ADD hosted event combined with it being a Toronto Film Festival party, attracted a full house to the Drake Underground. The $5 event was a full on dance party. Toronto native, Jake Fairley played a quality live set under his Fairmont alias. I love his Fairmont alias, but he definitely jacked it up a notch to keep the dance floor grooving. Gorgeous deep minimal techno with some new Berlin influenced Euro-trance sounds. Quirky James Holden did a DJ set with CD's. With his new album "The Idiots are Winning," I was hoping for a live set. Nevertheless, he played some quality tracks and finished off an amazing night of booty shaking techno.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to attend Decibel this year. If anyone is going and would like to submit a review and some photo's from the festival, I'd be more than happy to post them.
