illuminaughty Posted March 16 Report Share Posted March 16 Just curious if any one on this board is old enough to remember what was the ULTRA of the early 90's "DIVINE PLAYGROUND" that was at Bayfront Park. This event was totally ahead of it's time and its events like this that paved the way to what we now know as ULTRA. Considering back in that time electronic music and culture was very underground, and parties (raves) were held throughout Miami and Fort Lauderdale mostly in illegal warehouses. As I look back I still wish some of these parties and clubs that we now go to could recreate that feeling when all you needed to go out was jeans, a t-shirt and sneakers. If anyone was there you'll remembersome of the dj's that played there: Sven Vath (while he still played hard trance), MICRO, DJ HEll,Cosmic Baby some of the acts that played Utah Saints,House of Pain and a mind-blowing performance by MEAT BEAT MANIFESTO. There were other parties such as MAYDAY at the Mahi-Shrine Temple , dj's named PEZZ,KRYPTO,PSYCHOSIS,STRYKE and very up-and coming THREE were the ones that were tearing it up playing music that we all knew as hard trance and techno. Another astonishing and incredibly well produced underground party was known as ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE that was held on Virginia key in Key Biscayne. I cant begin to describe to you the feeling of hearing REZ by UNDERWORLD for the first time. While it was inevitable that electonic music would grow in popularity and go a little more mainstream one just cant help wishing to go back to that time even if it was just for one night. please dont think Im bashing clubbing culture here in South Florida because I still enjoy it, but trying to give you a glimpse of how things used to be about 10 years ago when we would of never thought an event such as ULTRA would of ever taken place.....
