Tuesday afternoon was reserved for the Defected Party for which you either needed a badge or to be on the huge guestlist. The party started at 1pm at the pool at National Hotel. Around 3pm, it was packed to the limit and the DJs of the likes of Kenny Dope, Dimitri from Paris, Brian Tappert and Jay J delievered hot sets. This was one of those parties where people did business by exchanging records and talk to each other. Tuesday was also the day for the Magic Sessions. Like the past year, Tony Humphries opened up and was followed by Tedd Patterson and Louie Vega. There weren't as much people as past year in the main room. Upstairs, there was the SoulFuric Party which was crowded and featured DJs Brian Tappert, John 'Julius' Knight, Jask, Copyright, Grant Nelson and Sheldon Prince. Not to forget to mention the absolutely amazing live performances by Ron Carroll and Shovell.
On the last day, I was simply relaxing. I met my friend KidCat and as I was invited to Barbara Tucker's birthday party, I went over there to meet lots of people and enjoy a fabolous barbeque. For the night, I decided to go to the ILOVEHOUSEMUSIC Party, organized by Brian Cabalic and featuring DJs Jesse Outlaw, Eric and JD from Deepswing, Master Kev and David Tobon from YellOrange, DJ Spen and Karizma. The party took place at the Chamber Loung which is a small place what turned into a problem as more and more people, including most of the people from the New York scene, showed up. It came down to a one out, one in policy as the place was overcrowded. All the DJ's rocked the place and took the audience from a high to another.
