A few months ago I played at Summer 72’s Silent Disco, and had an UTTER BLAST. I must say, the Summer 72 festival was one of the best organized, most fun and engaging music festivals I have been to in Gainesville… probably ever.
And the Silent Disco was the cherry on top. This was for real my first time doing a Silent Disco, so I was a bit nervous… not really knowing what to expect. But once I got started, I REALLY enjoyed the format. Being locked away in my headphones let me focus on my mixing and crowd engagement in a way that can be difficult when the club is lit and the speakers are set to 11.
Besides that, I had the good fortune of checking out Zach Deputy’s set, and BOY is that dude a rare talent! If you’ve never seen him, he basically uses his custom designed looping setup to create improvised jams that are always surprising and incredibly danceable. If you ever have a chance to peep his set, I HIGHLY recommend it.
And I don’t wanna forget to give a shout to my homies from Locochino burnin’ down the other Silent Disco set on the main stage. Bananas! But for real, the other DJs and acts were fire too… Dillon Rose, Electric Kif, Anubis… what a night!
