There’s no wonder that orbit festival was chosen among the best events of 2016 for many reasons. And here it comes the confirmation with this year’s edition with a huge line up, a lot of a quality and new names coming to Tunisia for the first time like DAX J, La Fleur and finally the master Radio Slave !
Day one with Daxj & DVS1
All was set on friday night march 31th. The night started by a warm up from the guys Abmain and Aqzy who delivered a great set as always, but this time they were side by side for a c2c of 1 hour.
Then our tunisian prodigy Haze-M jumped on the deck and started dropping some bombs and we all know that his productions is played world wide by the biggest DJs.
The call of prayer
Then, the moment that many tunisians waited for it for a long time, mr iron man : the DAXJ. without any introduction he started doing what he do best; playing a set that makes you shake your body on the dancefloor like a mad man.
I just still remember that timewhen he dropped two of his best tracks (By me for sure) « closer to god » and« protect the prophecy », some poeples said that they can not handle kinda tunes but personally i felt like i was traveling through the time between life and death, between Hell and Heaven, tripping into the darkness, enjoying the rumble in my stomach, the vibrations at my feet, the crystal-clear clarity of the sounds permeating my eardrums!
Otherwise, I just want to clarify a point ! No incident happenned when DAXJ dropped that track sampling « a call for prayer” everything was normal, but i remember that one of the Orbit Team asked him to swich and he emmediatly dropped an other track without complaining..
The secret tracks of DVS1
Then, at 2.am when everybody wanted to get some rest from the banging set of mr DAX, you can see one of the beloved Djs who loves Tunisia so much,since it’s his third time here ; mr DVS1! The mind behind many secrets tracks that still scratching our minds everytime he plays here! And like we expected, he continued what Dax did!
He just blew our heads with more unreleased or “secrets” tracks like he wants to call them. And by the end of the night, at 4h15 a.m you can see the crowd wanting some more music like always but we know the rules.
Day two with La Fleur & Radio Slave
The second day, everything was in order like the 1st one and that’s how you know a professional team ! They just keep doing the hard work regarding all obstacles !
The night started with our number 1 Dj for the 2nd times; Benjemy ; who delivered a set full of proper techno showing his skills in djing like no body ever did. Dropping his own productions like his new track (Too Perverse a bit Narcissistic). Or that epic moment when he dropped his track with the lovely palestinian Rim El Benna. At that moment, he gave shivers to everyone in the room even La Fleur who was standing next to him enjoying the sound .
By midnight, and like orbit fest always wanted a female touch to the line up, we had seen La Fleur taking control playing a 2 hours set. The crowd will never forget showing that she’s playing an important role in the techno scene!
Finally 2am, everybody was waiting for this moment for a long time. Here we are watching a calm man( not like his music) wearing a black hat, stepping up in the backstage who recieves this huge welcoms from the whole room !
Mr Radio Slave, one of the most hypnotic techno djs who know how to throw a quality set with tracks like « Dont stop no sleep »,« vision ». Certainly, those tracks were the highlight of last summer. He also tested his new EP celebrating the 100 release on his label Rekids (Official) with the track of the moment« An other club ». On this track he was sampling the voice of Lady Gaga in an interview. And the man made what it needs to be done.
After that he played the other side of his new Ep “ Feel the same” turning the whole room upside down. And like always, in the end, he played some disco music like” Never grow old-Robert Hood “. The whole atmosphere was full of joy and happiness. Even the djs liked it so much and they want to return and stay for more days since they knew that our clubbing Life is no different from scenes in Europe or elsewhere!
