So I know, it seems like these reviews are always about the Works, but hell, it doesn’t seem like any other venue’s are getting used to bring in out of town DJs lately. Friday was a good time, but I have to give my respect to our local Detroit talent, that was who really impressed me. When we got there, Vinsanity was tearin‘ that shit up in the backroom, droppin some hot ass techno, I almost wish I would have gotten there a little earlier so I could have see his whole set, it was very impressive. Brian Scott was on the decks next, and he brought some awesome house. This dude gets the track selection award for the night, he had everyone moving for his whole set. I also got to check out Disciple in the front room a bit. Usually, I’m not much of a drum and bass head, but his set definitely had my attention while I was up there. Brian Scott definitely had the crowd warmed up for Donald Glaude, but this is where the evening fell off for me a bit. I was dancing for the first couple of tracks Mr. Glaude dropped, but I don’t know, from there he kind of lost me. The tracks were kind of consistently a little too electro-house. Maybe it’s just me, but is electro-house the new trance. It certainly sounds fucking corny enough to take that title. How the fuck do you affix the word “electro” to that genre of electronic placenta? I mean really, it’s not electro. Anyway, maybe you had to be really had to be high on drugs to get into it, but his set was a total miss for me.
