Szentek: The Electric Launch-aloo provides a Boogie-tastic night

Launch and ruin.

With a strong impression left from last November’s Szentek event, the 2017-2018 committee had big boots to fill at Wednesday night’s Szentek Launch Party, affectionately dubbed The Electric Launch-aloo. With tickets being just £4 and a great lineup of artists including Tom Hurst (of the Wax Collective!), Recluse & Max Dupe, Content and Jupiter Whistles, Szentek’s 2017 debut was undoubtedly the most anticipated event of the week.

Walking into the newly redesigned Vic, the level of attention to detail devoted to transforming a classic St Andrews venue into a more boho, rave-esque environment was immediately evident. From the reimagined bathroom mirrors to the tapestries hanging from the ceiling in the main bar area, it was clear that Szentek was not messing around when it came to ambiance. Many people I spoke to specifically mentioned that the art adorning the walls in the dance areas was one of the most interesting aspects of the night.

Upon entering, ravers were immediately greeted by the tantalising aroma of cooking. Initially confusing, the source was made obvious when one reached the top of the stairs and was greeted by local pop-up, La Creperie – providing much appreciated dance fuel for just £3.

A bit slow to start, the dance floor was’t truly flooded until around 11:45. This allowed the more keen attendees to get properly bevved with short drink lines at both of the social club’s bars. Not that this was required to have a good time – one dancer informing me that “Szentek keeps me dancing all night long, even without a single drop of alcohol.” His not being influenced by even “a single drop of alcohol” could be debated, but the sentiment remains – the infectious beat and cozy atmosphere allowed anyone to have a great time, no matter their level of sobriety.

The main feature of the night and real appeal of Szentek is the superbly unique blend of techno house music it consistently serves up. Regular fans of the genre were delighted by a robust line up of St Andrews’ most popular DJs, while others not as familiar with the particular scene displayed on Wednesday night easily found something they were able to jive to. One attendee I spoke to told me that he normally wasn’t the biggest fan of techno music, but was pleasantly surprised by what a good time he was having getting down to a genre of music not typically in his wheelhouse.

The enthusiasm of the attendees was infectious and heightened the atmosphere on the whole. All together, Szentek provided a great night out and left many eagerly anticipating the main event being held on 16 November at Kinkell Byre.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and
    gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, allow me inform you precisely what did do the job. The article (parts of it) is extremely powerful which is probably why I am making an effort to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can certainly notice a leaps in reasoning you make, I am definitely not sure of just how you appear to unite the details which inturn produce the conclusion. For right now I will yield to your position but trust in the near future you actually link the dots much better.
