Off the ferry and over the rails, we hopped in a car at Kogorah station leaving a banjo player and some colorful folk behind as we rolled our way to Canberra with a carful of drums, bass and eager ways, stopping at a few nice joints along the way.
Time was drunk for the next few hours while we waited for what we had come all this way to see and hear…

I can only remember a shadow of the events that followed, which includes both Flying Lotus and The Gaslamp Killer's sets. The music was an extraordinary blur and the people I spoke to were out of their mind happy to be present at this moment. Jumz, a friend of mine who is slowly beginning to be enveloped in the electronic music scene stopped me and assured me this was the finest musical encounter he had ever experienced by some margin.

Was it the greatest set I've ever heard? Did Flying Lotus live up to expectation? The answer is probably... I really can’t remember. The one thing I can say, is that Canberra has a bright future ahead. With a responsive, open, like-minded public who are lending tremendous support to a group of guys who are creating something special.
Big thanks to Ric, Dave & Mr. Shaba

Apparently I took around 20 minutes of very poor quality footage that night...this is the best of it
