Broken Home @ Brown Alley - 18.6.2004

Sticking with our site's featured DJ/Artist, Broken Home, the brainchild of Keltec, Dan Mangan and Brewster B, has just finished its second instalment.

Held at the Colonial Hotel that seems to be going from strength to strength at the moment, I knew what I was in for as soon as I arrived. It amazes me that I have attended this venue a number of times now and every time the set up is different, either a different floor or totally different positioning of the booth. Keep it up!

Similarly to the progressive scene in Melbourne, the breaks crew seem to be growing into something world class. Hence why I chose to write this review to ensure people who are currently enjoying this booming style of music realise that there is a lot more going on in our flourishing city than they realise.

I am currently going through a very pro Melbourne stage at the moment and this night was no exception. With Keltec and Dan going back to back for five hours, a steady atmosphere was built slowly but surely until I realised I was losing it to the smooth and up front sounds as with everyone else.

A remix of The Prodigy's "Poison" was the main offender ripping through everyone, with it continuing from there. Brewster B coming on afterwards making sure that everyone got their hit of his tough and jumping style, which also included an excellent remix of "Outta Space" by The Prodigy. I really enjoyed this night and didn't leave until the last tune was played.

Although it might be hard to imagine what this night could have been like through this review, I would like to express that if you are a person that appreciates good music, especially of the breaks variety, then start asking around about Broken Home and you might find your new monthly breaks fix!
