system F aka Ferry Corsten rocks my fucking world. i just saw him at spundae/NV in san francisco...and it was the best night i *ever* spent at a club. he grabbed my hand and kissed me on the forehead randomly and wished me "happy birthday". um, okay, you're two months early, but fuck it, i'll take it. it's so rare to find someone so talented, and so important, who is still humble...but this guy had the biggest smile on his face no matter how many fans approached him for requests-- i know WAY lesser DJs who turn their noses up at such "audience participation". unlike Paul Van Dyk, whom i saw last week, Ferry actually PLAYED live, vs ceremonially setting up his powerbook and hitting a button.
what an amazing night...truly, this is one of those moments when you marvel at the world and think, "i'm so lucky to be me, to be alive." i still have the biggest, dumbest smile on my face. i couldn't stop dancing, no matter how tired or borderline sick i still was. that's the power of the DJ; i've never seen one do a better job of reading their crowd...i don't think anyone could resist the euphoria. he was really *that* good. if you ever have the chance to see him-- GO. and don't bother writing me a thank you note...i KNOW. he rules. :)
