Personally I feel there is still some energy out there in the scene but it is a little tired.
As mentioned above we are getting older along with the scene and the numbers of younger Soulies coming through has slowed down.
There are loads of great tunes out there but they do not all make it to the decks.
Collectors must be sitting on most of those.
People go to different events for different reasons.
Personally due to the number of years I have been going I prefer rare and underplayed all-nighters, soul nights.
It doesn't help when you feel knackered at the start of an all-nighter.
Work these days for many of us is very demanding so that does not help with the positive thought process.
As mentioned previously , there are many factors affecting the scene these days.
There a lot of good people out there running good regular Soul nights and all-nighters trying to keep the flame burning.
Just my reflection on it today.
p.s. working night shifts all week.
