SASASAS @ Rampage 2017

Rampage

When you browse every social media channel, and once you come across something so good, you need to sit down and relax, and let reality sink in. That’s what happened to me earlier. I listened to a set a couple of days ago at work, but couldn’t really watch the video, but now today I have. And my God, it’s amazing! It’s the live recording from last year’s Rampage, held at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp, Belgium, and the set was done by SASASAS. The legendary supergroup took over the stage and destroyed literally everyone, including me. And even though I wasn’t there, I felt the vibe. And the vibe came across my screens. Fuck me sideways, I normally only need to hear a set on Soundcloud and am able to judge the strength of it, but this time Rampage’s event has literally blown me away. The scale of awesomeness is tremendous!

Just look at the video. The light, the screens, literally everything is awesome. A proper heaven for music lovers. The Sportpaleis in Antwerp has held many events in the past, and those who were gabbers have been there and danced the night away, and now in the 10s it’s Drum and Bass and Dubstep doing the thing proper. I am literally blown away by the strength of the world’s biggest Drum & Bass event. And you can not hide the truth: thousands of ravers doing their thing, and demolishing the dancefloor. The lights are literally blinding. Put Macky Gee and Phantasy and a host of MCs in front of those people and you get an awesome set!

This 46 minute long video has got 99% awesome shots. The crowd is loving it, and the light & sound engineers are doing their thing extremely good. This is quality. Serious quality. And not only does the event and the organisation do their best to give the crowd what they deserve, the two DJs do their utmost to create the ultimate set. Don’t get me started on the MCs, because they are the finest in the DnB scene.

Give all the credits to the two DJs. How did they manage to cram in 63 records in a 46 minute long set eh? And the records are truly amazing, no joke! And the quick mixing is just mind blowingly good. And you can see the crowd actually loosing themselves, and so am I. The first time I heard this, I was like ‘oh my days, this is sick’.

This video is so damn good, and it shows me that my monitors aren’t really that great: my screens could not cope with the lights/lasers at all.

From the first second the beats are coming flying towards you, and Macky Gee and Phantasy do their best to entertain the crowd, and judging their movements constantly, I can guess they are loving the set. Even the MCs are causing mayhem, in a good way. They suit the DJs extremely well. Even though some have complained about them being there (they are just daft keyboard warriors), I think that SASASAS are really the biggest supergroup that has emerged out of the Drum & Bass world. I’ve heard a few sets by them before (never seen them live), and they always bring the fire with them.

Credits to SASASAS, but also the organisation behind Rampage. They made this event really one you need to look out for. A truly astonishing feast for the eyes. There has not been a shot in which I thought ‘that’s shite’. The lights, the bloody lights, they are freaking amazing!

I can not single out one record, or one moment during this set. From the first to the last second it’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions, and it generates only one feeling: happiness. They’ve succeeded at Rampage 2017, and 1.9 million people agree (and only 926 don’t). This is a set I’m going to play over and over again. Just listen to the crowd screaming throughout the set!!!!
