Hi my dear Afterhours Family, my dearest friends and DJS
I want to reflect a bit this Years End Of Year Countdown. Its not over now but only 20 Sets to go until it finishes.
This Year DAN and the Staff worked really hard to make a real big Show with over 300 DJs , means 300 hours of exclusive Sets and outstanding musik and i thank alot for that.
I was taken part in that Megaevent and i listened to near 70% of these sets and downloaded alot.
What i need to say is, that i was a bit bored of some sets. I thought every DJ will do a real Bomb coz this is the biggest Online Musik Event ever, but the truth is, that some sets sound like a normal monthly show and for that im bored.
I dont want to be missunderstood. Every DJ had made a real good set and who i am to say anything against. What i mean is, that some sets are all equal. Means that the choice of tracks was the same, the arangement was the same etc.....has nothing to do with the skills of the DJ
What i mean is, that when i listen 245 hours of musik and the most of it is a replay of the same tracks and arrangement it starts to boring and so its not longer something really special. In that case we heard alot of BIG Names in the maintimes with "normal" sets and on other side there were no name DJs with awesome outstanding sets in the late night.
On the oher side we had some real real OUTSTANDING sets this year. For those i gave the BORAT Price, that means these Sets were really over the rest. These sets were touching and well arranged, had a good Trackselection and a tribe.
(the Story of BORAT: BORAT was a funny Gif i always gave Manuel Le Saux and some other DJs for some real outstanding tracks in their sets. With the time ppl recognised that it is a Price for extraordinary Music and so the meaning of getting a BORAT grows massively. So for this EOYC i decide to make this PRICE more bigger...to give it to the really best DJs during this event. No one than me can give a Borat in that way...it has become a lil Trademark here on AH and has created a real History and DJs really apreciate it when there is a BORAT arround, given from me officially in the Showthreads ...so the Story goes )
So here is list the BORATS given, the Number has nothing to say :
Borat No 1: LAZARUS
Borat No 2: DISTAND LAND
Borat No 3: MED & NEIL BAMFORD
Borat No 4: IAN BUFF
Borat No 5: DFX
Borat No 6: T4E
Borat No 7: RONNY K.
Borat No 8: FERRY CORSTEN
Borat No 9: DEEPRESS
Borat No 10 & 11: MANUEL LE SAUX
Borat No 12: AKIRA KAYOSA
Borat No 14: STAM ARISTO
Yeah and the Audience gave ME a Borat too for my set so
Borat No 13: JAYCAN
Armin also had had a Borat but after i recognised that it wasnt a set exclusive mixed for this EOYC i decide to take away.
There were so many DJs doing their work well and really exclusive and made an extra set for this, so why only a Rip from a Show ??
All in all a great Show but to much repeaten Tunes...okay not easy but i heared some they managed to make a set not only playing the handfull of overplayed tunes
My hate Tune of this EOYC is Rank 1 L.E.D. there be Light
I counted and i came over 100 times the song was played
so in the end i just need to say...this is all my personal meaning and i wish a EOYC 2009 with more exclusive sets, more outstanding sets and that the DJs didnt play only the actual top 20 tunes then more that what they personal really like...wheres the own meaning
any comments ???
THANK YOU DAN AND STAFF FOR THIS AWESOME EVENT
