I really enjoyed this set and the night in general. There weren't too many of us out tonight, but the energy stayed high and I felt the lovely connection with the dancers while spinning. That's the thing that makes DJing feel really good. When the connection isn't there it can still be a good set but it feels more like work. But when the connection clicks, it's almost like you're out there dancing with everyone in the room.

My favourite bit was the big energy jump in the room when I moved from the mid-set calm spell (Goon Drag / Tonsilectomy) into Momma's in the Kitchen.
