I arrived at 11:45 while Miz Megs was layin’ down a remix of NU NU. “mmm mmm yeah yeah..” *shake, shake, shake*. Miz Megs was playin’ it fun and bumpy, perfect for when people were trickling in. ALMOST as fun as her Gameboy dress 😉
She busted out Black Pussy by Fantaboys before Jerome Robins came on at 12:05. The beats took a turn for the deeper as Jerome Robins threw on a track with soulful female vocals.
Li’ly did some light redecorating since the last time I was there. Looks like someone hit up an army surplus store and picked up camouflage netting to give a more patterned look to the black lighting. Promise is also known for the camo netting party trick.
Jerome Robins amped things up over the next couple tracks but did not lose the soul. Spiller’s Groovejet, or a version of it, was thrown down and the quickly growing crowd was excited to hear such a classic.
Oh yes he did! Chiapet was dropped and took the jam to the next level.
By this time the place was pretty full, and with familiar movers n shakers in the tech house scene. It was a pleasure meeting Miss Raquel in person!
MC Flipside came on at 1:00 to a pre-sweated dance floor. Bumpy awesome tech house ensued and Flipside dropped one of his own tracks that he did with Jerome Robins and DJ PP, Dirty Beats.
“HOW MANY YEARS GO BY AND WE STILL LOVE THESE BEATS?!” Said Flipside on the mic. The crowd enthusiastically agreed.
Then my notes read as such: Triple bass drum unf unf unf, Sax sample, Crazy dancing
*shrugs* I don’t know if I could write anything that gets the point across any better!
Flipside also dropped The NightOwls’ remix of Sellin’ Chickens by Odi Diaz…
Technical difficulties produced a silence that was quickly filled with the singing of Happy Birthday to Flipside. A few smiles, a flashlight and BOOM, the party went on as per usual. #meanttobe
Joee Cons came on at 1 and kept the tech house train a chuggin’.
Sexy male vocals sayin’ “I just can’t get you out of my head…” over a sick beat was totally doing it for me.
3 o’clock brought Jayforce to the decks. The only other time I heard Jayforce play was at Comfort Zone and he totally ripped that place apart!
Jayforce took the party to the next level. The feel of the music immediately shifted the energy in the room and everyone was dancing.
Watching him play is almost as entertaining as hearing him play. He moves well and interacts with the crowd *thumbs up*. We like this.
Shazam was being a jerk, but Jayforce did throw down a One Winged Dove remix that got the slowly dwindling crowd going. 3:45am is late, but not for some.
Jayforce took things a little darker before handing things over to Chris Vench at 4am.
I hadn’t heard Chris play for a couple years, and it was wicked hearing his new (to me) sound. Techy, dirty and groovy as hell, his set was certainly hitting the spot for so late/early.
He played this one track that had me find out what is was IMMEDIATELY:
Danced til the last beat like it was MY birthday!
DBR Recordings = Flipside and Chris Vench
PBR Recordings = Flipside and A-Divizion
