So how do you blast 'the Gas'? 'Everything is now pointed in the same direction, including a set of delay speakers just past the halfway mark to serve the rear section. Sound takes a little while to reach the back of the hall, a delayed signal halfway then amplifies it. Yes, it's all physics. And ultimately you can only partially calculate it. You always have to judge how the hall behaves.' Indeed it's an unruly thing, an almost untamable fire- and laser-spitting dragon. But you not only have to accept this, you have to embrace it too. 'I remember Richie Hawtin's engineer saying: "hmm, the room doesn't look very hi-fi." HaHa, that's right, it isn't. But it does give you all sorts of options. Len Faki, for example, puts it to amazing use. His style suits the Gashouder perfectly anyway, but when he plays here he unleashes even more potential. You know what sounds best at the Gashouder? A 909-kick, just the kick drum. The echo in the hall gets to work on it. That's the purest kind of techno.'
