The security around him was preventing pictures with flash which would show that his jaw was wrapping around his neck. He trainwrecked countless times. He wasnt even tryin to do anything special, just play a record or cd, but that was some kind of impossible physical challenge. Im all for doing your thing and letting go but I dont think you understand just how fucked up this dude was. This wasnt no dancing in the parking lot youtube bullshit. I had a great time though, Stacey Pullen was killin it downstairs. Im sure someone here knows Chuck Flask from Paxahau, just ask him what he thought of Sven.
lol yikes

I wasnt at demf but i can say i have seen so many videos in which ricardo cuts out the music and the crowd shows a huge reaction..... at fabric, at sms, last time i saw him at pollerwiesen he did it too, at green and blue 2009 he did it... its pretty much his handwriting if u ask me... im pretty sure he does it on purpose in 99.9 % of the times....

Ricardo, the producer, is responsible for some of my favorite tracks and remixes. He is musically gifted and as many here have already said, his older albums are classics.

As a DJ, I've yet to hear one of his sets really rock me. Good sets here and there over the years? Sure. But lots of this mediocre stuff, too.

There's an old saying from Jazz Age boxing legend Jack Dempsey that I think applies perfectly to Ricardo:

"It's difficult to get up at five in the morning to train when you wake up in silk underwear."

The Kontrol Party was pretty sweet with Rich. Me and my buddy were the last ones they let in after CLR literally and we caught the last hour of his set. It was nice because it was half packed and Richie didn't play tech house for 2 hours straight and played "a lot" more weirdish minimal stuff than the norm. :P Earplugs were a must.

ofcourse i understand people can be dissapointed when they see a less than average performance of an artist they wait so long for to finally see him. Still its not bongo minimal with bongo minimal and you got the whole trick of this guy.... its not that easy to me... his reputation (as a dj) did not build up just like this because of nothing, when u experienced one of his greater sets you would know..
