Spread the Vibes challenge: Dreaming about the Perfect Club event

in Music4 months ago (edited)

Today when some of us are working on posts to provide some input to the #SadSunday tag, I woke up with the strong urge to pickup the invitation from @andrewmusic. The request: Respond to his post. The challenge: Spread the Vibes. At the same time, days ago I asked @mipiano to get her dancing shoes ready and be prepared for some underground electronic music.

My Response: to Andrew's entry

Andrew is one of our most passionate guitar players. Whenever I watch one of his videos, it makes me happy to see him getting one-with-the-music. In his entry to "Spread the Vibes" (source) we get to rock to this song we all know: "Paradise City", by Gun N` Roses (Andrew's Post).

Please watch the video before continuing reading, so you understand why I'm writing what I write next.

It's clear, Andrew should be a stage performer. Realising he learned to play along with this song just the day he created the recording, he did an excellent job. Listening the recording first through my laptop speakers, I had to grab my headphones to get a much better sound in my ears. You shall know: I only put my headphones one, when I like something 🙃 Not only Andrew looks passionate when playing, he also sounds passionate. I don't know much of rock music, but I believe this guy knows what he does and has all the skills needed to jump into a song and get something going with an end result I can appreciate a lot!

Andrew: "You did it!"

My Entries

Yes, plural. I couldn't limit my selection to 1, that was clear from the start. Since the whole situation we are in with the lockdowns, no clubs events and festivals going, I seem to listen less and less the music I so much love. Now, a year in and out lockdowns, I long for more than some great sounds, pushed into my ears by the best speaker systems around. I can think of only one place I like to be: "Berghain" in Berlin. Its sound system is so good, it's almost impossible to believe this is setup by humans. Whenever I enter Berghain, walking up the stairs from the club entrance to the dance floor, I get goosebumps, irrespective of the music played. Perfection, is the only word that comes to mind.

Long story short. My music selections give the idea what I like to hear when we are allowed into clubs again. All these recordings makes my mind and skin to react. Mind: the feeling of being one with the music. Skin: goosebumps, maybe even some tingeling. Needless to say which location I dream about. At Berghain, the combination of the music and the sound quality enhances all the great feelings even more.

Though Berghain is for some about the harder styles of Techno, I won't mind at all when someone like Lanoche plays a set like the one below, opening my Berghain session at Sunday morning. A perfect sound to start a 12 to 20hrs music experience.

The most perfect setting would be: The Berghain floor with open ceiling allowing the sun to show itself to all of us in the room. Need to talk with the owners: To be able to make my dreams come true, they have to re-model the ceiling, since today it is not possible to open it. Some waterbeds and couches will be nice as well!

Those who are interested to know: Lanoche is Spanish and as far as I know, plays all her sets in a live setting. Meaning, no records, no tracks, but music creation on the spot. More of her work, you can find in her Soundcloud channel.

After the warming up with the deep, ambient-ish, slow techno sounds of Lanoche, it's time for some more serious techno vibes. Etapp Kyle is known to me as someone who can perfectly build the bridge between the sound of Lanoche towards the sound of my 3rd selection. For what I know, he is the best music export product of Ukraine. Resident at Berghain, he varies his sets from chill out vibes to serious minimalistic techno. The recording below gives the combination of both. His Soundcloud channel for more of his work.

After Etapp, at least 8 hours into our music experience (artists are generally playing for at least 4 hours at the Berghain floor), it's time for some serious techno. Peter van Hoesen came to mind. A guy from Belgium which I discovered a few years ago. Unfortunately I never heard him play in a club or on a festival, therefore the perfect artist to pickup from Etapp.

I had to select an older recording, since one of his most recent recordings I was trying to qualify for my dream club event, did not make it. A bit too 'cheesy' electro sounds to my taste, a bit too many mixing errors, and a terrible recording. I still wonder why the recording guy uploaded the set to Soundcloud. Anyway, the selection below is none of that. Maybe 1 or 2 tracks he could've left in his record bag, but the rest is more than A-ok. You like to explore more? Peter's Soundcloud channel.

My Invites

As with any challenge (even when this challenge is also not a challenge), its customary to invite others.

  • @mipiano: A piano lover by heart, from classical to modern. "Will you run, or not?" 🤣
  • @drumoperator: A guy with the most impressive modular setup. Lately more into ambient and experimental, but I'm pretty sure he appreciates techno as well.
  • @bushradio: aka LFO ONE producing music using hardware and playing live sets (as far as I know). I usually like what he shares with our community.
  • @nickyhavey: This active community member is all the way into Drum&Bass and Jungle. I have no idea if Techno can please his ears. Let's see what his response will be 🙃
  • @iamevilradio: A serieus Techno fan and artist/DJ himself. I do hope he'll pickup this invite. Last post is almost 3 weeks ago, but I'll do my best to reach out to him!

Girls and Guys: This challenge has no timing requirements, so don't feel being pressed to react immediately. But, I do expect a response from you all! I'll hunt you down, when you don't! {again: no pressure 🤣}.

Spread the Vibes Challenge (launch post)

Why this challenge? Easy: To spread warm vibes in our community and along the way to challenge ourselves and others about and around a topic we all love: MUSIC .

You don't have to do much. Just pick a song, write something and invite one or more users to react to your music share. To add a little extra to connect all of us a little more, let's add our reaction to the song shared with us as well. I like it when the song we select is from a genre that is liked by those we invite. In case you don't know the musical taste of those you'll invite, you may check their blog, or search their blog with 'HiveSearcher'.

When using the command: music author:edje you'll get a list of all posts and comments containing the word 'music' posted by the user edje (that's I 🙃). Replace 'music' with whatever you like to search for. Replace 'edje' with the user you like to dig into.

Tip: Write something with a personal touch. This can be anything: from your thoughts and opinions of the music you share and react to, to any story you like to share with the music. Remember: Music shares without a personal touch is just music that we can find anywhere on the internet. Cool in itself: But won’t we appreciate music more when something personal is added?

Spread the Vibes Guidelines

No rules, but guidelines:

  • Post Content
    • your reaction to the music that was shared with you
    • your music selection and related story
    • your invites of other HIVE members
    • link to the post you react to
  • Post Tags
  • Post Community
    • any community you like

Easy Piecy! 🙃

Spread the Vibes Rewards: Lame

Usually, a challenge is packaged with some monetary incentive. But, isn't that boring? And isn't monetising positive vibes not lame? Passion, energy and community vibes: That's what counts!

So you know: Though we can't guarantee some curator team selecting your post for a boost, we also can't guarantee this will not happen 😉

At the same time, days ago I asked @mipiano to get her dancing shoes ready and be prepared for some underground electronic music.

Hm, double challenge not challenge, from the other dance post and spread the vibes.. How could I even try to run away? I am trapped, I mean wrapped now in this music genre.. but not shoes prepared. I will go to Benidorm and dance barefoot on the sand and the mild waves will chill the heated feet :p


Girls and Guys: This challenge has no timing requirements, so don't feel being pressed to react immediately. But, I do expect a response from you all! I'll hunt you down, when you don't! {again: no pressure 🤣}.


Hahahaha :) Soooo, the Lanoche one is for sure a cool recording to listen to and move the body to when on the beach, under the sun. The Etapp one may be as well, at least for me. Peter van Hoesen requires a dark setting in my honest opinion. Though I can listen to anything at a beach under the sun, the best experience to some of the recording in my post (Etapp's and Peter's) is in the dark, with some cool club lightning and eyes closed half the time :)

Lanoche one is for sure a cool recording to listen to and move the body to when on the beach, under the sun.

I started with listening LaNoche ... I think there will be again noche sin dormir (sleepless night) dancing and writing the response :D

Hahahaha, no timing requirements you know :) But indeed, I expect a response, sometimes at least ;)

Starting with Lanoche is the best indeed. Peter or even Etapp can be a bit overwhelming and may sound to much boom boom boom hahaha

A little tip. Though Lanoche can already be appreciated with some lower quality speakers, to get the best experience out of Etapp and Peter is with some quality headphones or some quality hifi system with speakers. I prefer headphones.

Also, don't turn up the bass, maybe you want to turn it down a little. I never use equalisers, like boosting the bass or something.

Anyway, be honest and brutal if you need to be. I've heard so many people say: "Is this music? Do you really like this? It's all the same." That said, in my life I opened the minds of others, firstly asking me the previous questions and after some time asking me: "When do we go to the next party edje?" I was trying to win souls for this type of music, even before 99,9999% of the people heard about it :)

Anyway, be honest and brutal if you need to be

Peter van Hoesen.
Headphones, although some normal Philips ones.
Volume max 😱
Writing an unrelated post to music.
At least it was the plan.
No word written jet.
My heartbeats speeded up.
Feeling -like experiencing heavy rain.
Without umbrella and shelter.
Enjoying it.
Not sure if it is healthy to listen to it so loud.
Not just for hearing.
Love the provoked reaction.

Not sure if it is healthy to listen to it so loud.

Not sure either. When I'm at a festival or in a club, I wear ear protection. At home I rarely use headphones. I use HIFI + speakers.
Sooooo, would you listen to the Peter van Hoesen recording again?



Just when I was getting prepared for another one, who was overshared recently?

Peter can come 👌

may sound to much boom boom boom hahaha

What best than this to wake up from my siesta now 😂😜

🤣🤣🤣 🎶🎶🎶 💃💃💃

@edje @edje @edje - it is simply awesome to see your initiatives and engagement, sharing for more recognition hopefully. Thanks for all you do!

Your most welcome... Found some extra energy to try and push things a little at the music section at HIVE 🙃

Yeah - I totally realized that, you are everywhere, well done mate!


you didn't invite me haha
Does anyone know how to block people here?
Thank you very much my friend for your words, I would like to have a better sound and I will get it when I can change from a computer to a more modern one, in fact, I already bought the camera to improve the quality but when using it the effects of amplitube 4 do not work for me.

as I write I listen to the first audio, I feel like in the jungle, trying to escape from a lion that is chasing me, nice sound.
I hope that each week more and more participants join the dynamic and that soon, nighttime activities can return, it is very important for humans to have fun with other humans, if it is with your musical selection, much better

I speak Spanish and I don't know how to tell you this:
have you seen auronplay?

I'll hunt you down, when you don't!

My answ: Come get me, but with your face uncovered! Haha

Owwww indeed, I didn't invite you. But I'll tell you something, this is not the last post in the Spread the Vibe challenge, I'll be creating. So be ready to get an invite sometime in the future :)

That said, you are most welcome to join in! Always! :)

How funny you see yourself running around in a jungle trying to stay ahead of lions when listening Lanoche. Wondering where you will be running and from what when going to Etapp and Peter. Must be major sprinting instead of just running {LOL}

Auronplay: No never heard of him. He has his own Wikipedia page! WOOHOO :) And yea, I come and get you. Well mission accomplished already {LOL}

@andrewmusic what happened with your eyes?? 😱 🤣

Es como una tendencia en Twitter, se utiliza cuando una criptomoneda está despegando hacia la luna.
En este caso en algún momento nos toca
#hive yo the #moon

Ok, gracias, menos mal, ya pensaba que te enfadas por algo ... (broma) :)

Tú eres mi ventana hacia twitter. 👌

jajjajaja no creas, si me enfada no tener fresas y dulces a media noche, jajajaja
con gusto, ser una ventana para twitter, me gusta allá para promocionar a hive, realmente antes de hacer promociones por allí, no lo utilizaba para nada.

Con promociones me refiero a los post que hago acá en hive, intentar divulgarlos al mundo.

Y ayuda, verdad, promocionar en twitter?

A mí tampoco me quedan fresas ya...ahora es tiramisu 🤦🏻‍♀️ 😜

@edje , when we are going to hunt down our invites? 😅

I think I have chosen people who don't have time :-(

But then others jumped in my post as surprise 😇

I would kindly remind and encourage @drumoperator @bushradio @nickyhavey (I saw you said your music disappeared with you PC 😔 ) @iamevilradio to jump into this super cool funny exciting music spreading party 🤩🎉🎵

Thanks for your call out mipaino! To @nickyhavey... you don't need your own music to jump on board, so leave the laptop where it is with your techno-ish track and jump onboard with some 3rd party music 😉

I'll be providing the vibes this week man, looking forward to it! Have bookmarked the instructions post 🙂

Yeah man, sorry things went crazy last week and went on a crypto blogging mission after my music PC went to hospital. I'll definitely be adding a post this week 😀

This active community member is all the way into Drum&Bass and Jungle. I have no idea if Techno can please his ears. Let's see what his response will be

Well, I might be working on a little something and was getting read to send off a Deep Techno track to be mastered today but before I could, my music PC has totally died on me 😭😭😭 I'm going to be really pissed if it can't be saved, have called in help of an IT whizz and hope they can resurrect it. In the meantime, I'll have to just continue blogging!

It will give me more time to catch up to activities on PeakD anyway!

D*mn! Were you able to save your work? Or still in the process?
Blogging is so 2021! 🙃
The good part of this all, you can participate in this challenge and can get a bit creative at it. Time enough {LOL}

Thankfully I had just finished working on the track and saved it all before things went kaput! Haha, well, I'm happy to buck the 2021 trend so will start working on a post for the challenge, although I won't be able to share my Techno attempt for a while!

Great! And no probs: Music usually has no expiration date 🙃

Ok, I didn't found my shoes... even couldn't dance barefoot... bad waether... but some rocky foot is there... trying to dance :D


And what a great rocky foot it is :)

Yeah, thank you :) It is great, just because I caught some great vibes spread here around 😇

🎶 😍 🎶🎶 😍 🎶🎶🎶

Hodl hive until 1.000 USD 10 years
Then you buy the Berghain floor with open ceiling 😎.

Hahaha, maybe maybe :) I hodl more than a few HIVE, so I may be able to extend the Berghain floor to add another 'monumental' building next to it.... That said, its already big enough, too large and too many people are not good at all :)

Awesome vibe spreading ^^ passion is the real reward here!

passion is the real reward here!

Absolutely! 😍
