I had an absolute blast @ Torch this month! We got snowed out last week and were lucky enough to be able to re-schedule. Thanks as always to the whole team @ The Masquerade for working with us on that! I apologize for the “later-than-late” start on Friday. We did get cranking ASAP though and Zach (Johnny GoodTime) got us from 0 to 100 mph in record time! It has been a pleasure to watch Zach progress over the last year, from playing the soundcheck @ the last residents night, to starring as a resident this year. Timewarp VIP x Snarl was really clutch! Big up mate!
Next up we had a new tag match up with Logam and Trench mixing it up! Thomas & Ben did a fantastic job of keeping it high energy and the crowd was loving it. I think we will have to have those 2 go at another tag set again! I really wish we could have gotten it recorded!
Chris QuickTemper also keep the vibe going and the energy. Its always interesting to me to see Chris rinse it out, as I always think of him to play liquid. He has smashed every subgenre of dnb at Torch and this was one of my favorite sets from him!
Dave Moneyman and Steve Subconscious came through and dropped some serious amen / jungle business! It was a nice change of pace and just shows how flexible dnb can be. Steve dropped Future Cut’s “The Specialist” which I have always thought was an older Bad Company tune. It was huge and went off! Dave brought his signature style of dark dnb and it was well received by the torch crew! It was great to see him as I know he has been busy with a new baby at home!
Overall a successful night and I will see everyone on 2/19 for the next edition of Torch!
