Ro’s First Trip!

“Carnival Sunday 2009.  I was just getting into dancing properly; all bright eyed, excited, and a little knot of nervousness in my stomach.  Hand in hand with my dancing soulmate, she was dragging me through the tunnels and past the crowd all focussed on Claude vonStroke ("girly techno" - wtf mate).  Right to the deepest arch.  Dark and empty.  Front left, no problem.  Had never heard of Ben Klock or Ostgut Ton, barely knew what techno was then, but we danced deep and low and weird and long, totally rapt.  Felt like he was playing just for us.”
