Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour - Review

Check out Kidzworlds review of the best electronica event of the year - Sasha & Digweeds Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour!

It's been almost two years since I last saw legendary UK DJs Sasha and John Digweed play live, but the excitement for that show was nowhere near as huge as it is for this show, which is part of the Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour.

Sasha and John Digweed's Delta Heavy Spring 2002 Tour concert in Vancouver, Canada was a complete sell-out. The hype was huge as many people like me had been eager to see their favorite DJs back from such a long touring break. When I entered the venue, it was incredible to see how this sell-out crowd was completely fixated with the DJs on stage. Sasha and Digweed are so highly regarded in the electronica scene that hardly any other Dj can grab as much attention and respect as this twosome.

The music was incredible. Most of their DJ set was like a time machine back to their early days when Sasha and John Digweed were best known for playing epic (dream-like) and uplifting trance music. As the crowd got more into the music, the beats moved to harder, driving techno. Every mix was tight, showing a smooth transition into each track so the music seemed like one continuous song that didn't miss a beat.

The lighting was top notch, though I was expecting more than just two large screens for the funky eyecandy that was being projected onto them. Just above the DJs were about eight massive white strobe lights that came on throughout the evening, blanketing the audience with pulsating beams. On the stage level were two Mac 500 lights (the best lights around) that direct huge beams of light that would change form and color with the music.

All in all, the show was stellar! It was interesting how little to no lighting was focused on the DJs themselves. It got me thinking that maybe Sasha and Digweed wanted the crowd to be more focused on the music rather than the DJs themselves. Makes sense, and it just shows how dedicated to the music these two UK DJs are. Massive props to Sash and Diggers!

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

    "It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

    “Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
