A week into the season and DC10 opened its doors for the Paris based agency, Lola ED and some of their underground stars. Last night saw Djebali, System of survival, Clive Henry, Dan Ghenacia, Dyed Soundorom, Tania Vulcano and Martinez Brothers take over the terrace; with Yakine, Anthony Collins, Sossa, Seuil, Shonky and Andrew Grant completing the parties line-up in the Main room.
Now that the dust had settled since the official opening party last Monday, which saw hundreds of tech-house heads flock to the islands most unique venue, DC10 was ready to delve into the more relaxed June parties. Starting in style with their Lola ED take over the party attracted a larger crowd than last years June dates but there was still plenty of space to carry out your best house bounce. The club has also had a little make over which made a huge difference, the venue is now sporting a new 'Loud Professional' sound system in the main room and garden; with the main room also being redecorated making it look like a real underground venue. Brickwork has replaced the old plastered walls and the DJ booth sits perfectly within the new design bringing DC10 up the aesthetic ranks. The terrace has also had a small tidy up although they have kept with the red theme as it perfectly matches the rooms passion and energy at each Circoloco party.
The Apollonia crew from Lola ED all played sets between 9.30pm and 12.30pm with Shonky taking on the Main room and Dan Ghenacia and Dyed Soundorom playing in the terrace. Ghenacia even dropped Shonky's track 'The Minneapolis Touch' creating a great unison between the two artists and their conflicting set times. Dyed took over from Ghenacia and went on to take the daytime party into the night with Desolat hip house track 'Party non stop' by Pirupa which spread a trippy bounce through the terrace with its infectious bleep riff. In true DC10 style the pretty busy DJ booth spurred on the crowd to get down on the floor as they built the beat up for a dirty drop. Last night the Lola ED team not only brought quality music with them but they also landed with a really upbeat and happy vibe which was unmissable within the buzzing crowd.
Shonky gave the main room a blinding set encouraged by an air horn which could be heard from time to time. Andrew Grant followed on from Shonky and stepped into the brick booth bringing the main room party to a close. As 2.30am passed the main room was closed and the solid underground fans filtered into the main room bringing it back up to capacity and elevating the terrace euphoria even more. The Martinez Brothers rounded off the Lola ED Circoloco extravaganza in the terrace and were constantly interacting with the crowd bringing a beat in with their magic hands and dropping some filthy tracks. It was great to see the Circoloco crowd still going strong right up until close, roll on next Monday for some more DC10 fun!
