Aaight dis should be a controversial discussion, so please don’t hesistate to participate:
For about one year we follow a change in the reggae & dancehall scene here in stuttgart.
The number of parties decreased dramatically. Once there were a lot of adresses for a Dance every weekend, now there’s just one date (ok. two if u count the U-Turn). A lot of sounds lost their regular-parties including us and the possibilities to find a new one aren’t as easy as many of you’ll believe. Maybe this is based on the problem, that the people here are very fussy, of course there were many sounds who tried to create a good concept in the wrong club! And that’s the issue, we’ll definitely find a club to start a new regular but we’re afraid of the risks! Our first regular in Club Finca was really successful and we were surprised about that! Maybe our concept was great, we’ve always invited sounds from other cities, the club was exactly in Stuttgart’s center and we chose a 2-month-intervall to arrange the parties AND the club was new to the scene and no other party bombed (funny the word bombed means „floppen“). If the club-owner hadn’t decided that he only wanted to run a strictly electro music club, I’m sure Bass Culture would still be a good party!
The last time when I was in Zollamt I couldn’t believe what I saw there: The massive is gettin‘ younger and different and I really miss the good old times, but I’m open and I try to accept this fact. The only place where u can meet some really old music-friends is still Kingston Hot, but massive, where are u at the other 3 weekends?
Right, I know there is a change – not just in Stuttgart. A lot of threads in dhm discuss this tiredness and of course I think that it depends on several factors, but is this really just a recent problem? Frequently u hear always the same theories, one believes that the music changed and that this is the biggest problem, others think that there are just not enough good parties – I personally think that there was excessive supply and this caused this tiredness here. But now I’m tired of staying at home and I really wish to get more opportunities during the weekends!
Ok. if u’ve another theory or any comments, please leave them below!
Would be great to read it! Glory
