Even though I was a little apprehensive about a “Secret Location Brooklyn Party” aka “Warehouse Party” aka “Underground Party” (as everyone refers to them) I still was excited to get there….
My biggest concerns prior to entering the Digital Distortion party on 18 Feb 2011, were as follows:
- Not fitting in (age wise and party-level wise)
- Not knowing the location
- Not knowing all the DJs
- Lasting until 6+ am
I arrived around 12am, and was kindly greeted by 3 police officers and two door people. Everyone gave me a smile- I felt in no way intimidated. After checking my IDs I was directed inside to the cashiers who were also very friendly and helped me immediately. Directly after the cashier stood the “mandatory” coat check ($4 or pay $5 to keep your coat on…this was new to me).
Total door time: under 7 minutes. Score.
Once settled in we went into the main floor to check it out, passing a table with tons of glow sticks and flyers (which we ignored due to our lack of personal interest in glow sticks).
Once inside we found a huge room with fantastic lasers and near perfect sound. This place was large, loud and not that full. Drats! Where was everyone?
I knew going into this that there was potential for failure due to the same night booking of M.I.K.E. at Pacha NYC. So I quickly shook off my disappointment with the crowd, and thought to myself “this place is at LEAST 50% full who am I to complain? Means more room for me to DANCE!”
The bar was manned with three fantastic bartenders and there was rarely (if at all) a wait. I only had three drinks, each one was great…but I really didn’t need them- the music was fantastic.
Upon entry we heard some very hard/fast/techno/trance/house music. The DJ was all over the place- but honestly, it worked. Imp not a house fan, and I don’t always like the harder tunes…but I really enjoyed this set.
Shortly after, Casey- Breakfast- took over the stage and adorned us with the eclectic array of tunes that he throws together oh-so-well. No one can do what Breakfast does and I don’t even care to hear anyone try. The trance/proggy/techy set was mixed to perfection with some recognizable tunes but mostly with new-to-me sounds that kept me excited for the entire hour plus set.
At 2:30 Marcello -DJ Eco- went on, as well as Rory James and Gerard Levelle upstairs. I was so torn on this placement. I love Rory and Gerard, and had yet to hear them together and they promised classics. When Gerard promises Classic Trance, you can bet your pretty new panties that you will be getting true melodic beautiful classic trance. But I adore Eco.
I forced myself to start upstairs with the boys, and was not disappointed. True trance smacked me in the face upon entry. Although small, this room had character beyond any expectation I could ever have had. The lasers here were great, too. I lasted for a few tunes and then made my way back down to Marcello. Sadly…I never made it back up. Eco had me at “Lost Angeles”.
The DJ prior to Casey had dropped Eco’s “People”, which just so happens to be my favorite Eco tune so I was already in the mood- no one stood a chance against Marcello this night.
As expected the set was phenomenal and I barely recognized how incredibly tired I was. By 4am it was Mike Saint-Jules turn and I was really running out of steam. Then it happened- Mike jumped on the decks with such passion and energy I felt like I had chugged 10 redbulls and been introduced to the energizer bunny by that chick form the Geico commercials. Enthusiastic? Um, yes. To say the least.
Mike brought us some fantastic vocals and new tunes that still have my head spinning. Sadly as he dropped his new track Summerlives- ft Sandal, the fire department got there to shut us down. Still not sure why, but we had noticed the fire alarms competing with the lasers at one point- so I wasn’t surprised.
Conclusion to the story:
This party was fantastic. The people who threw this event were extremely organized, no frills except where needed and the entire crowd was not only respectful to everyone else but happy. Not one person seemed to not be enjoying themselves. I felt completely comfortable at all times, and even managed to stay up much later then I expected.
The police presence remained outside and no one felt “watched”. The comfort level of all aspects of this show were at 100% plus.
The prices for drinks were fantastic, and many free drinks were given out that night. The DJs were all top notch and I am finding to see them all again.
It is highly recommended to every EDM lover in the tri-state area to come to a Digital Distortion event as soon as possible. You will not be disappointed.
