So here we are at fifth & final bite sized reflection of the Delice Dream Festival of events and our last night in the hands of Anthony Lille & his captivating crew, our curtain call being the Muccassassina party, which proved to be the best way to end our stay in Calella. Why?, well this is why…..
Onto our home stretch of a decadent & debaucherous five days in the grip of the first ever Delice Dream Festival and we were hopeful of a right royal send off, Diego Longobardi & his tight knot Muccassassina team taking hold of the reigns to show the rest how it is done. And they certainly did that from the off, resident D.J. back in Rome, Danny Verde, kicked off the night at Zillion in scintillating style, gloriously gathering an ever increasing crowd with a solid string of superb sounds, some Verde classics, others new tough tech & progressive beats that won him even more fans than he already had. But then enter from stage left the Mucca dancers, dressed provocatively in erotic black tight pants, g-strings & the like, immediately pushing the mercury off the scale with the best stage show of the week, Danny’s musical mastery matching the men’s movements magnificently. With the atmosphere elevated beyond expectation, Mr Verde’s performance, like Mucca’s show, proved to be the set of the festival, although Mr Mola took up the mantle majestically, keeping the party pumping well past the 5 a.m. finish, cries & clamours for more from a packed out stage & dancefloor the ultimate crescendo on a truly captivating clubbing night. Having thought Mr Lombardi would pull of something quite special, we were right on the money with our estimation of this euphoric event, the company of Guy Scheiman, Elof De Neve, J.d. Cerronez & co a delight, while the drop dead gorgeous Mourad was at his breathtaking & brilliant best, making our ecstatic evening complete. So, with so much more to say, its “…ready, steady, go for the review…” (DISCO MATT)
Welcome back to our delectations on the Delice Dream Festival, this fourth of five tasking a look at the “before” parties held in the host Hotel bar, four different nights with four very different D.J.’s, two in particular topping the scales superbly, our bite sized summary going like this….
With the Delice Dream festival daytime focus very much being based around the host hotel, the all-in attraction of boozing & cruising proved irresistible for many, meaning that come 8 p.m. each evening, the place to be was in the bar, soaking up the sounds of the various guest D.J.’s. Mind you, having arrived very late on Saturday, we missed out of the first foray, a fashion show by the BelAmi boys, D.J. Soren mixing the music, although the feedback we received was less than flattering. However, come Sunday, we were to pole position to lap up the loveliness of La Demence resident Andrei Stan, who’s set well & truly shone, getting the gorgeous & not so gorgeous looking lot in the mood for more, with rousing renditions that left us & others spinning on our spots. That said, it was a bit disappointing that the planned AussieBum fashion show was postponed for the following afternoon, although there was plenty of entertainment from a drag queen duo & other WE party enthusiasts warming up for the “Attacks” event which followed in the club. Then on the Monday, it was the turn of Belgium again, this time Red & Blue’s Elof De Neve, who proved just what a tremendous talent he is, packing in piles of pumping & heavenly house hits that wowed the warm up wonderfully, he probably more deserving of a slot in one of the main parties, but content enough with his lot, partner to crime J.d. Cerronez entertaining enormously with his audacious antics. Finally for us came Tuesday and our last “before” bash in advance of heading back to London, we very much in the mood to let our hair down with our posse of pals, J.d. particularly providing enough satisfying fun & distraction from D.J. Amine’s dour dance deliveries which proved pretty disastrous, much of the focus on the Delice boys out in the foyer for a photo shoot, especially our man Mourad who was lapping up much of the limelight. So, with our focus on the two brilliant Belgian’s in our full on reflection, it’s “…ready, steady, go for the review…”. (DISCO MATT)
