Back to Home for this Friday’s helping of trance, courtesy of Voodoo and a bill featuring three internationals. We arrived just after Dennis Sheperd started his set at midnight and spent a lot of time saying hello and chatting to friends, perhaps encouraged by the fact that we weren’t really enjoying the music much at this point. Sheperd has a number of great productions to his name, but they didn’t feature in his set. Although he did play a remix of Dennis Sheperd and Cold Blue feat. Ana Criado – Fallen Angel, it wasn’t to my taste and there was no sign of the tune of theirs I much prefer anyway – Freefalling

But when Mark Sherry took over at 1am, things changed rapidly for the better. Upping the tempo considerably, he had us down on the dancefloor in no time. Dropping tunes including Aly & Fila with Giuseppe Ottaviani – Brilliant People (Mark Sherry Remix), his own My Love, Push – Strange World and Above & Beyond – Sun In Your Eyes (Mark Sherry’s Argentinian Sun Remix), Sherry took us on a beautiful, uplifting, high energy journey right through to the end of his set at 2.30am.

It’s worth mentioning that the sound system at Home, which has been getting better over recent months, is now really good and not just in parts. Everywhere I spent time, near the front, along the side, at the bar and even at the back, the sound was really impressive.

Indecent Noise came next and after some technical difficulties with the mixer, he gave us a typical tour de force of his unique 140+ approach to trance. I loved every minute of it as he mixed new tunes like Armin van Buuren – Ping Pong (Simon Patterson Remix) and John Askew – Mechanism with classics like Motorcycle – As The Rush Comes, System F – Out Of The Blue and Armin van Buuren vs System F – Exhale. I really didn’t want this set to end, but at 4am it drew to a close and we had to leave. 

This was another great night organised by Voodoo, who have really hit a golden streak recently. With the sound and production at a high standard and a regular supply of great international trance DJs, it’s providing plenty of great nights for Sydney’s trance faithful.


Once again, a big thanks to Luke Davids Photography for the awesome pictures!
