Saturday night, a mid-January thaw in Detroit, and some properly performed techno. We found ourselves down in Corktown at 10 Critics, to check out Starski and Clutch and James T Cotton at Fun, which appears to be a new monthly party with varying venues. 10 Critics was a a bit different, when we got there a sign on the front door informed us that if we weren’t members, we had to go to the “business office”(a shipping container with a door and a ticket window)in the back to obtain one. This involved giving a quite a bit of personal info, and giving them a 20 spot. However, this one payment($10 for cover, $10 for booze)entitled you to open bar all night, so really not a bad investment. The venue was straight, good sized dance floor, good “free” bar area. When we got in, E-Spleece was spinning some nice techno, and the crowd was growing. By the time Starski and Clutch went on, there was an awesome crowd fueled up on an open bar that was there to dance. SAC threw down and awesome set, touching all types of dance music genre’s. They started off with some booty, but thew in some house, acid, techno, soul, old school, and even a couple of club bangers. People were dancing their asses off for the whole set! James T Cotton hit the decks a little before 2, and brought a set of some proper techno, with some fucking awesome acid thrown in. Awesome track selection and mixing the whole time that finish up the already pumped up crowd. Word to the the promoters, db productions, for a truly proper party, I can’t wait for the next one. Luckily a lot of video got shot, so here’s a little sampler of the evening.
