I’m actually really tired , and my FMFA post will be a real short one . Cause I’ll be doing for ASOT600 only . 😛
Well, we parked pretty far from the entrance .. It took us about 20 minutes of walking to reach the entrance and its RM50 for parking . Goodness . Good workout . Especially walking back to the car after the whole thing .. We were walking in the dark .
Security is pretty strict . We went through 2 checkpoints , first one to check your IC to identify if you’re 18 and above or not . The 2nd one is to present your ticket .
Well, Don from Manoah Consultancy gave me my wristband and media tag at the 2nd checkpoint, so I just went straight in . 2nd checkpoint was where they checked your belongings and what not to make sure you don’t bring in any food or water and etc . At the 3rd checkpoint (LONGEST QUEUE EVER), that’s where they give you your wristbands . Even at the VIP queue line, it’s not even moving . Thankfully I had my wristband already, so I just walked right in ! 😀 Thank you so much, Asahi Malaysia and Manoah Consultancy for the VIP & media pass to ASOT600.
I didn’t bring in a camera because it’s simply too much of a burden to . So I took pictures with my Samsung S2 only .
There was this cubicle after the 3rd checkpoint .. The only cubicle with the longest queue ever, with NO LIGHTS IN IT . So yeah, if you came alone, you’d suffer in this cubicle, having to juggle with your phone light and peeing . Unlike us , we had friends who could help shine light into the cubicle from outside . 😛 We have restaurants to dine in the dark .. And now you have this – Pee in the dark . Yeah . Awesome experience .
The strobes and flashing lights were amazing . Every beat, every perfect note . Gosh . It was euphoric .
When we reached, Super8 & Tab were already on set . I don’t quite enjoy pure trance with no vocals in them . Not in a concert or with friends . I’m odd that way, don’t know why .. But I really like the tracks they all played . W&W also played a few awesome tracks .
They remixed Spaceman by Hardwell with Thing Called Love by Above and Beyond . Although I personally enjoy the sndrz remix of Spaceman , this is equally great . Somehow it blended in real nicely . I embedded the song here . Enjoy ! 😛
Cosmic Gate played their famous Exploration of Space . That’s a real old song man .. Back in 1999 . I still remember how my brother and I used to dance to that. :O
When Armin came on stage, everyone was shouting ‘ARMIN, ARMIN, ARMIN’ or ‘TRANCE GOD IS HERE’ . He started off his set with this song , I love it lah . So epic . Although Final Fantasy X was just going through my head whenever the harmonious angelic vocals are heard ….. Erm . Hehe .
Here’s the full video of Armin at ASOT600KL, FMFA 2013, Sepang
He played a lot of nice tracks from my favourite DJs like Solar Stone, Giuseppe Ottaviani , Ferry Corsten .. And my all time favourite song too – Concrete Angel by Gareth Emery . I was definitely in a state of trance .
Here’s the videos of the different Djs for those who missed out on ASOT600
Okay, enough of my shots .. Let me show you the pics FMFA posted on their Facebook page .
