We have to give a round of applause to Verboten NYC for consistently putting on amazing events and bringing out undeniable DJ talent — this particular night fulfilled all my expectations. As I walked in, Kate Simko had already brought the crowd to their feet (metaphorically speaking). The audience overall was a little light but she delivered on some good-natured vibes right from the start. As Kate went deeper into her set, she unleashed an even heavier bass sound and I would venture to say her set was an outstanding introduction for Guy Gerber.
Without haste, Gerber transitioned into one of the most exotic sets I’ve ever heard; eclectic, energetic and absolutely moving. I wish I could’ve made out more of the tracks but I could certainly pick out two heaters: 1. Maya Jane Coles’ remix of Ritual Union by Little Dragon and the closing track Timing, which is one of Gerber’s originals.
Gerber did everything in his power to keep the good people of New York shuffling throughout his set, and as he wound down you could see the satisfied expressions on everyone’s faces. What happened next was unexpected but a turning point in my own music career: Carl Craig changed my life. Craig captured the dance floor and played everything from old school Detroit acid house classics to Joris Voorn’s Goodbye Fly. They don’t call the man a legend for nothing and if you’ve ever wondered why he’s consistently named one of the best DJs in the world – go see one of his sets. What a night!
Huge Thank You to Verboten NYC for supplying such an excellent night before Thanksgiving.
