Friday, 31st August saw Ram Touring present us the Electricity Tour at Assembly , Cape Town. The weather was appropriately Capetonian, but the crowds who braved the gales and rains were rewarded with a night to remember. Assembly brought to us the finest DJ’s by the likes of George Daniel, Das KapitalHyphenLogistics (UK), Sigma (NL), & Bruce Willis.

 The event was kickstarted by George Daniel & Das Kapital , quickly getting the crowd onto the dancefloor using an assortment of dance floor weapons.

Hyphen took the lead. A man with experience, who really seems to sense the crowd, which was clearly seen from the reaction of the people on the dance floor playing Drum&Bass and mixing in a few unexpected genre’s but the crowd was unstoppable and the heat was up.

Logistics was ready to raise the bar, and what better way to start off with his own track “Fear Not” which got the crowd going from the word go.He started off deep playing tracks synonymous to that signature sound of Logistics featuring some old classics and tracks well known on the Drum&Bass charts. He then worked his way up to some more high energy tracks. Although I did notice that Logistics is very un-animated behind the decks , he sure makes up for it with his clean-cut mixing ability and track selection.

Sigma, expectedly, smashed it appropriately for the Assembly crew, With hands up in the air and the crowd chanting along, it can’t get much better than that! Other classics like Sigma’s own remix of Rusko’s ‘Somebody To Love’, Wilkinson ‘Tonight’, Sigma ft. Ikay , Foxrox & Geetox – Night and Day, worked the crowd like nobody’s business.

Sigma played an almost surprising amount of Electro for a small amount of time , but quickly getting back into the swing of things with face-melting drum&bass bangers!

The last track Sigma played really brought the crowd to its knees! , At first I thought it was a Sigma remix of Deadmau5 – The Veldt , but turns out it will be an original featuring on their forthcoming album.

The last set of the night was epic as expected from Bruce Willis??, Showing no mercy. dropping bass heavy tracks giving the remainder of the crowd a reason to stick around and keep on dancing!

On a personal note, I really dont think the people in the crowd didnt know alot of the tracks which were featured in both logistics and sigma’s sets, especially their own tracks.

They were just there to see Logistics & Sigma , and get wasted. But it was a big night for drum&bass none the less and what I loved seeing was everyone just enjoying themselves and “skanking” to some amazing music!

For a scene that has sometimes felt removed from the wider spectrum of electronic music, nights such as this one were a welcome respite.
