I’m usually not overwhelmed with production these days, but. HOLY MOLY KAOS GARDEN BLEW MY MIND! The level of detail and amount of love put into this event was clear, the minds behind Elrow‘s newest concept “Elrow’art, Kaos Garden” was unreal. Brooklyn’s very own Avant Gardner was transformed perfectly for this magical event, this theme being a new collaboration with artist Okuda San Miguel and powered by Barcelona’s very own clothing brand Desigual. During various moments of this show it felt as though I was right back on the white isle of wonderful Ibiza, the withdraws are still kicking in from last Saturday and probably will last quite some time.
Starting the night with elrow resident De La Swing, he’s become quite the favorite around here in NYC, requested often for him to play whenever an elrow show is announced. Starting up the night in the main room, De La Swing is one of those openers that plays nice and groovy. Not going hard but not going soft either, it was a nice pace and a fun way to begin the night. Elrow production team wasted no time with showing off the insane production and live actors, by 11:30 P.M. a giant inflatable duck took over the crowd and confetti rained down on the vibrant Brooklyn crowd. Although this installment had three rooms, choosing De La Swing was the best choice to start the night.
I ran over to Kings Hall to catch an artist I’m beginning to love, Latmun. Latmun took the decks and hit us with quite a few remixes of some radio pop tunes. He dropped a house remix of Technotronic‘s infamous track “Pump Up The Jam”, with the miniature disco balls lighting up the Kings Hall. Latmun played exactly the groovy House set I needed in my life! After all that House music, it was time to close out the night with the legend himself and elrow resident Paco Osuna. Closing out the main room with a special extended set that went into the early hours of Sunday morning, Osuna brought his A-game for this one. Hitting us with groovy beats and slowly but surely transitioning into dark techno, it was interesting to see him change it up and play a different set than what I’m normally used to. Although the crowd didn’t want this magical night to end, many of us walked out to the sunrise with a lovely smile on our faces. We knew that we just experienced something unexplainable and magical. When it comes to parties, the minds behind elrow just know how to create an unbelievable experience and deliver something that’s incomparable within the scene.
