Optimogeddon - The Final Optimo - 25 April 2010

Full 7-hr rip from last night's shenanigans.

After a brief foray into broadcasting live on last year, Twitch and Wilkes decided to stop it as it didn't really capture the atmosphere of the club. "Too clinical", apparently. Fair do's, but thank fuck they hooked it up again for this monster of a swansong.

Technical stuff: It missed the first minute or two (AWDIO, not me - I was refreshing like a madman) but apart from that you've got the full thing, split into 5x mp3 files. The program I use to rip stuff like this had spilt it into 7 files of its own choosing by the time I looked at it this morning. I've made three into one (seamless-ish) but the gaps between the rest of the files were in the hands of the gods. No noticeable gaps anyway...

*EDIT* turns out my computer missed off the banter at the end followed by the last two tunes (superb video footage here). I've changed the file for Pt 5 or you can grab the last 15 mins on their own via the link underneath it... *EDIT*

Of all the stuff I've read about Optimo in recent weeks, it's this Resident Advisor article that hits the nail on the head perfectly. Fuck knows how many people didn't make it in last night, as you should have seen the state of the queue very early on. According to the Sub Club's website it holds 400 people. Hmmm.

I listened to bits and pieces of it last night before I went to bed, but it was doing my nut in to do so. I made the mistake of following the action on Twitter as well, with everycunt commenting on what was on the stream. Couldn't sleep for ages as I was going through all sorts of emotions. Attempting to make do with the memories of our last visit a fortnight ago wasn't really cutting it.

Tune-wise I'll not spoil any of it for you, but rest assured that a good few of the Optimo 250 made it into the set (166 of 'em on this Spotify playlist if you feel the need). Only thing that's missing from this is the crowd, who certainly add plenty to it on the brief moments you hear them via the mic.

Well I guess that's it then. Cheers fellas. They loved our ears...

You're a hero, thanks

Was glad to see the "close family only" queue jumping was in full effect... Gutter for the average (regulars from recent years no doubt) punters who got turned away.

anyone know how to make these 10 files work on a mac?

it was probably recorded as a wav file then split / converted later. It's what I would have done.
