En terecht, deze gasten verdienen het:respect:
Pff, wat een set op defqon.­ Nieuwe eindbazen voor mij
I thought i was done for this morning, fucked legs and all, so i went a bit earlyer to the touringcarsexit. On my way there i happened to pass the Warehouse. I got sucked inside and was instantly energised. That is some pretty effective Hardcore seems to me. Turned me into a psychopath for the last fifteen awesome minutes of Qbase. For that i thank you guys :bier:
