MiniShake Parties – The concept and who has played there.

Once upon a time there were raves; Platform shoes were “in” as were chequered, bell bottomed trousers, naked belly buttons, white gloves and (God forbid!) chupa-chups. Ultra violet, laser shows and strobe lights were chic, flashing in a frenetic fury to any sort of new beat that was “being discovered” “Excess” was the name and “whatever” was the game.

Then we learned that less IS more and that we don’t need a blasting, blinding light show to get the crowd going– the artist’s clicks ‘n cuts, glitches and melodies, some grinding some floating, do the job today. In the good DJ we trust. We learned to truly LISTEN. BPM was dethroned and cohesion and imagination were left to reign on a kingdom of structured sounds, each with its own story to tell.

MegaShaking slowly turned into MaxiShaking and today we are left with the bare essentials: MiniShaking.

MiniShake parties are held every now and then, wherever the fancy takes us, for pleasure seeking MiniShakers who respect each other’s “square meter” and know how to party long and hard to some of the wickedest beats around.
