When will I sleep…

What a weekend… I met up with Mitko, the Macedonian graffiti writer I interviewed at the Balkan Youth Festival. He stayed at my place for a couple of days, starting last Friday. I hadn’t really rested well, so when we went to a drum ‘n bass party at night, I was already pretty tired. About the drum ‘n bass scene here… Man, do they like loud fking drum ‘n bass. I love it too, but when I came in, they were playing loud already… There was no build-up or -down whatsoever. Bad DJ’s. Besides that, everybody was on drugs and they overused the stroboscope which is VERY annoying in an overcrowded room. Very dissapointing, I hope to see better drum ‘n bass parties here, since I heard Sofia has a good dnb scene, but I spoke to some people there and they told me that this is basically the average dnb party in Sofia. Utrecht 1 – 0 Sofia.

The next day we got up waaay too early (somehow we had managed to find our beds at 7am). We got up at about 11, so we were both pretty tired. I met some cool people though, friends of Mitko (he’s lived in Sofia for three years). Basically, we chilled out the whole weekend.. On Sunday I had a couple of hours alone, so I cleaned my whole apartment… you know… vacuum cleaning the carpets, moving around tables so I could place another carpet (it’s getting really cold here), cleaning bathroom sinks, toilet, putting one of those soap dispensing things in my toilet (how ‘burgerlijk’), making my bed, doing the laundry, wiping down my tables, doing the dishes, putting things in closets and drawers instead of having them laying around everywhere…

Then in the evening I got a CD of a local psytrance duo called Asoma. They’re really great producers and since they’re Mitko’s friends and he’s coming back in Oct/Nov, so I suppose I’ll be hanging out with them.

I’m just balancing on a very bad cold though, so today I’ll set out to buy at least a scarf and candles, and if I see anything good: a coat. Because I did not take one here.

  1. Hahaha, at least in BG we have ‘normal’ toilets:P
    btw I had one of these soap dispensers stucked inside 😦
    not a pretty picture, and it was 150euro to call for a man on sunday:( good we split in 4

    good luck. Watch for the dispenser. And I am sure you will enjoy some other DnB party. In BlackBox there is a chill out lounge with some chill dnb and even multimedia, but not always! The DRUGS, yeee fuckin synthetic, it is all over the teenagers. What I really dont like about dnb, an so called ‘parties’ :))

    AGREE on Utercht 1 – Sofia 0
    I really enjoyed the UtregCrew b-day party! BIGUP!
    but the match is not over 😛

    met vriendelijke groeten,

  2. Utreg Massive is the shit.. Too bad I couldn’t be there.

    You’re right about the chill out though… I found myself spending most of my time there, which is very rare for me at a dnb party.

    When will you go back to BG? I’m back in Holland at the very end of January… If at all possible, I guess we should meet to make jokes about each other’s countries 😉
