Last Saturday night, Webster Hall turned into a Detroit house party. Lux Groove and Codes joined Gotham's ode to Detroit tech and bass house in the Grand Ballroom, while there was some dubstep head bangers moshing in the basement. A dichotic night for curious souls who enjoy dancing until the AM.
I was immediately drawn to the house party in the Grand Ballroom. As I walked in, the DJ table was pushed up to the center of the dance floor, there were circular danceable platforms, and acrobatic rope dancers flowing in and out of the performance. The show continued with a mystical crowd- from 7 foot tall drag queens wearing their highest heels to stilt walkers waving their braids to the beat of the music. Lux and Codes served up filtered acid bass lines and just enough drop to get the crowd worked up to a steady bounce for their two hour set.
Lux Groove, with his hip-hop and drum & bass sound, and technical production sits in high esteem as a producer releasing music with Dirtybird Records and the infamous Claude Van Stroke. Don't miss catchin' this guy live!
