Such genuine fun. Thank you Solomun (Official) for the +1.
In the night, we right. Tonight with Solomun (Official) at Pacha, Ibiza.
4-HOUR DJ SET IN AUSTIN. On the drive from Dallas, I asked Garrett at Kingdom if I could open the room and play 10pm-2am instead of the planned 12am-2am. Sometimes amidst all of the traveling, loud noise and loneliness, the most familiar and comfortable place is to be alone in a DJ booth, playing music for myself. I love opening a room when a lone bartender is the only one listening. The occasional dancer wanders onto the floor and does a few head bops or dips. Last night, a young couple were the first two dancers. I looked out and there they were, just watching and smiling. I sent them some drinks. What you hear on this recording is the truest building of a room. I start with a long loop, keeping most of the EQ knobs at 9 o'clock. I go out on the dance floor to hear the system. Sound will change as people fill up, so it's best to not assault a few people with piercing treble. Later, at 1:30am, everything will be past midnight on the knobs. That's about it. I had so much fun. Kingdom is easily one of my favorite clubs in the states. The crew are legitimately great people. The sound is clean and so powerful when you need it to be. I hope you can close your eyes and imagine yourself dancing with me in the booth when you listen to this. Drinks on me. - Matthew
