Slush'n'Soul Allnighter, Parkhotel Dresden

No doubt this was one of the finest Allnighters I've witnessed so far in Germany! It just had everything musicwise: well-chosen classics, top rarities, 6T's, modern, uptempo, midtempo - and it was less sixties biased than it is usually the case if there's only one room. At the beginning some people were obviously surprised that the DJs really dared playing songs that were too slow for some taste. But once they had accepted the idea - which was not too hard to do given the quality and soulfulness of the tunes - they really started enjoying it!

I've listed the first set of each DJ, so what you find here is basically all the songs that were played between 11 p.m. and 2:30 a.m.
