Torch Residents Night was a blast! I was curious to see how the crowd would turn up for all the Torch crew and it was pretty thick all night! We have a great group of folks who help me with Torch and I was glad to showcase them this past Friday. We did have to start late and I should have done a better job of monitoring the calendar for the other shows at the Masq. We will get that sorted out for the future. The cold elements did not stop the Atlanta DNB heads from making out to the first edition of Torch for 2015!
My one of my best friends, Zach aka Johnny GoodTime, was suppose to do our #SoundCheckSet. This is a new program we have for aspiring DJs to get a bit of practice on a club sound system before going live @ Torch and other venues around the city. With the bands and the late start, we decided to have him open and he did not disappoint! Slamming tunes from start to end, including some new biz from the Prototypes as well Culture Shock. Zach and I have been friends since we were teenagers and it has been a great experience to see him dive into DJ'ing. It is also been a lot of fun to practice with him at home and show him some tricks! He has been working hard on mixing, track selection, dj homework, etc and it really showed at Torch on Friday!
DaddyDough was super sick and had to call out. Hope you feel better mate! Logam, Moneyman, Subconscious, Thomas B & Thesis went in on an all night tag session! I feel we represented a large variety of Drum & Bass from original productions, forthcoming dub plates, liquidfunk, minimal, dance floor smashers, neurofunk, etc. I posted some info for each crew member on the event page and will re-post those on our page as well. MC Evade was hosting on the mic and Mr. Chuck Skillz also was ripping up the rhymes! I cannot thank my Torch crew enough for always coming through and helping with the show and overall Torch project!
I was very glad to welcome back Mr. Thomas B for his first Torch in a few months. Thomas has been home taking care of a new baby and his older daughter. We are glad to see him back and he did not miss a beat with his return on the decks. Big up Thomas B who has also been one my best friends for many years now!
See everyone next month for TORCH: A LIQUIDFUNK VALENTINE! It is all liquidfunk, all night!
