Russ Yallop on Richie Hawtin b2b Villalobos

DC10 Terrace 2006 or 2007: "What DC10 was about: two titans of the underground in a sweaty, jam-packed booth. It was a six-hour set and I think I caught every track. I remember the contrast between them: Richie, a blond android with half a haircut, Ricardo a rusty robot you'd buy from some Jawas. They started groovy, finished pumping, and hit every adjective in between. The peak was when one of them dropped Daft Punk's 'Indo Silver Club' – and the asylum went mental."

Clive Henry on Laurent Garnier

Space Terrace 2002 or 2003: "The way Garnier hopped seamlessly between genres, playing classics from techno, house and d'n'b – without it sounding weird – was one of the best things I've ever heard on the island. He took risks, which the crowd appreciated, but he didn't go so far left-field that he lost the vibe. I think he even threw in Donna Summer – sometimes that can sound sort of tacky, but it worked. He left the whole terrace wanting more and I was so glad to be there."

Richy Ahmed on Jennifer Cardini

DC10 2005: "It was in the middle of the minimal explosion at DC10 but Jennifer's music was such a refreshing change: lots of energy, very electronic, with minimal elements and dark at times, but always musical. To see her play the inside room at DC10 (which at the time was a lot more intimidating) was amazing. She had such style and confidence, and was in total control of the vinyl and the crowd. I loved every track she played. She totally nailed her first ever gig at DC10."
