-October 11th 2011-
A warm brisk night in Seville, Spain, leads to the makings to a wonderful night of music. The music-goers start to trickle in the street surrounding the venue around midnight. Nightlife in Europe begins much later than Americans are accustomed to. As cars pull up, trunks are popped, music played, drinks are passed, and the dancing begins. Inside Cosmos, a large dance-floor is surrounded by stacks of speakers in all four corners packing plenty of bass with amazing quality. The lights covered the ceiling, with more strobes behind the performers. A full-service bar with beautiful bartenders, a premium sitting area with a good view of the stage, allowed everyone to find a comfortable place to enjoy the music. Top of the bill were Drum-N-Bass heavyweights Counterstrike from South Africa, with local favorites Dub Elements, Venganza, and Qkhack leading us into the night. Qkhack began the festivities with a wonderful set, a bit lighter than what was to come. Dub Elements was amazing, with a wide variety of drops, bass, and build-ups. The much-anticipated Counterstrike, was worth the wait, and brought some of the most serious bass, heavy hitting hard Drum-N-Bass. The dance-floor literally erupted and didn’t stop moving until the end of their set.

Overall, it was much different from anything else I have ever experienced, a wonderful loving crowd, accepting of my lack of Spanish speaking skills, and amazing music. If you ever find yourself in Seville, Spain check out the Resistance facebook page, they have events sporadically, but would definitely be worth checking out.
