80's Dance at the Eurofurence 21. An Reflection.
« on: 25.08.2015, 13:18:55 »

I would say: Id was THUNDER!!!!! Yeah!!! :)

It was wonderful that I could be there with my Vinylis. Rather, it was an honor for me to be able to work together with you, gentleman.

And though it may be another 80's Dance are next year, I would be happy to be able to be back with my Vinylis with it.

I really liked the 80s dance. You and everyone who was organizing the event did a great job. The only wish I have would be that you should stick to 80s music. I remember that after some time the music was switched to 90s dance music for some time.

However, apart from that it was awesome and it is one event I already look forward to in the next year.

The 80s dance was THE party highlight for me this year! A BIG thanx to everybody who made this possible! I liked the variety of music styles from synthpop to hardrock.
For me this evening was not so much back to the 80s, it was more like back to EF12-15, where the dances gave me intense feelings of being together with a big family.
The only negative thing about the 80s dance was the lighting, the too dense fog at some time and the large space between the dance floor and the DJ desk.

The Eighties dance was huge fun. Many were hoarse from singing along to all their favourite tunes.

And because the beats were not all that fast, it was both fursuiter- and greymuzzle-friendly ;) You could take break or take it slow every once in a while.

I also appreciated the volume: It was immersive, but not too loud to interact with your friends.

Thank you Twillight, it was both fun and honor, and really nice to bring that vinyl back to life!
I hope we get another shot next year, i'll sure be prepared ;)

Also personally, it was really nice to go back to the tunes I grew up with, with some Rock peppered-in, and on a sound system much better than the average 80s boom box ;)

This!

I appreciated the speed buildup (it got faster as the party went on, maybe started a bit too slow even, but it was good), and definitely appreciated the sound level too!

They should probably call it the 80s to 90s dance, but yeah I certainly enjoyed it!

This.

At one point I thought: “Too bad, they are not playing 80s anymore now. So I can go to bed as well.” When I turned on EF Prime in my room, it was 80s again. So I returned to the dancefloor and … the music hat changed again to 90s, 00s, 10s, whatever. (I can’t distinguish between those.)
Well, I had a great night, anyway.  ;D

Fuzzy had the idea to play also music from the 90th He wanted it necessarily.
So we let him play his 90'th music.

And as we always alternated us, that came about, what you have heard.

I will actually apologise for playing the 90s stuff... The way we originally had planned it was, as I understood it, to be the same as last year... start off with early 80's tunes, then creep up through the years and nudge into the 90s towards the end of the evening.
Apparently that wasn't what people really wanted this year... and after playing a couple of 90s tracks I noticed this so didn't play any more (except for a couple of silly mashups of 80s tracks with some modern stuff... but that's still acceptable, right?) ;)
If the brief from the get-go would have been *only* 80's tracks _and nothing else_ then I would have stuck to that, of course.

Ah well... glad everyone had as much fun dancing as we did DJing ;)

The only bad stuff from my perspective were:

- Too much smoke at some points (I believe the smoke machine behind the DJs got stuck 'on' and had to be unplugged!)

- Low/no lighting at the beginning (the lighting crew apologised for this right from the get-go: the lighting rig had crashed and they had no controls at all and were rebuilding it all as the dance was in progress... which is why the lighting got better and better throughout the night)

- DJs standing too far from the dancefloor - we couldn't even see the dancefloor for the most part... I was shocked to see just how many people were dancing... only by looking at photos people have been uploading taken from the dancefloor...

Here's what we could see (a photo I took while DJing)



This photo was taken at 22:50 and (I am told) there were over 200 people on the dancefloor at the time... so... yeah...

- One final thing: the bass... whoever decided it was a good idea to have the bass speakers under the stage... that vinyl players were going to be sitting on... well... heh... no :)
We had to get them to cut the bass speaker every time we switched to vinyl, or else the head would just skitter around...  Next time I suggest we have vinyl players on *solid* ground, or a floating surface.

So... not really much bad at all from my view... waaaay more funstuff than those few negative points :) 

Big thanks to all involved, and also to everyone that turned up and danced!
So glad you all enjoyed the opening night of the con as much as we did :)

I'm replying because I talked to Garra while it was happening :) Placing the subwoofers in front of the stage or partly under the stage is pretty standard, and there is not really a different viable position for subwoofers. However, nobody really knew that turntables were going to be used. So the solution for next time is to thing of renting isolation mats:
