SaSaSaS @ Westfest 2019

If you love Drum & Bass, I do not need to explain who SaSaSaS are. These legends are dominators in the scene, and whenever they perform, you know the party is about to blow into a billion pieces. If you are attending a party and they are performing, you will see something happen that you won't see anywhere else. Pure madness, pure dedication, pure DnB. So it was an obvious choice for the organisation behind Westfest to get them to perform at this year's party. The event only took place a few days ago, and their set is now online (with a tracklist). Are you ready for the madness?

My missus wasn't. She walked into the kitchen when I was listening to this set, and she was like 'wtf is that?'. She isn't a fan of DnB, so I'm guessing she had never heard of SaSaSaS before, and she won't hear them again after the kitchen incident. The crew are just pure fire, and when you give the MCs the microphones, you know that they will demolish the people's eardrums. Unstoppable from the first to the last second. But don't just assume that this is all about the MCs, the DJs are as important as the MCs. And during their hour long set they decided to give us constant eargasms by playing 64 records in 59 minutes. Will you Adam and Eve it? That's just insane.

I know what the mission is of SaSaSas. The ravers who are witnessing them are not able to acknowledge what just happened. How can you describe this set without mentioning the words 'unbelievable', 'fast', 'powerful' , and 'insane'. After a set by the legends you need a tissue, a cigarette, and some sleep. The feeling is similar to having sex for an hour, and when it ends, you need time to recover. Rough sex though, not very passionate.SaSaSaS do not take any prisoners. I might try to play this during the missus and myself's bedroom antics, see if she will appeciate the fire. I highly doubt it.

Anyway, before my stupid blog becomes unreadable and more like a sex expert's diary, let's see the tracklist. Thanks to SaSaSaS for the tracklist.

I just love their set, can't you tell? An hour of absolute mayhem and madness, and the result is a wicked set. Both DJ Phantasy and Macky Gee destroyed our eardrums with 64 records in 59 minutes. I still find it amazing that this is even possible! And the things is, it all sounds flawless. And the crowd does love it. The whistle crew was present at Westfest, and you can hear them throughout their set.

The thing is, I've never seen them perform. I've only seen them in videos,and hear them on Soundcloud. Never had the chance to hear them perform live. So I've based my judgment on what I'm hearing, and obviously it's completely different to those who have seen them. I envy those people who have seen SaSaSaS. THEY DO BRING THE FIRE.

The music is good. Excellent. And even the MCs do a great job. But seeing as English isn't my mother tongue (my second language) and I never listen to lyrics, I find it difficult to understand what each MC is saying. They are just too damn fast. Before I literally dissected their first sentence, they have already finished their 14th sentence. It's incredible what they do, and how the crowd knows nearly every rhyhme they are spitting. The only bit I can respond to is 'BO', if asked if anyone wants a reload.

All jokes aside, I'm loving this set. It has made my day. Fire from the first to the last second, and also a fitting tribute to MC Stormin. This MC sadly passed away last year, but his legacy is still present, and will be forever! #bussit

A set you need to hear. A set you need to experience. I will do my best to hear SaSaSaS at least once before I go. My health needs to improve, and once I'm back on my feet, I will go back and rave again. I must. Why, you might ask? Well, just listen to this set and tell me if you sat still? You can't, and neither could I. I'm a raver 24/7 365 days a year, and a set like this one just lights my fire. And the crowd's response is just insane! Goosebumps!
