Coyu and Suara land at Privilege.

It’s all about the music… and cats as the Suara opening party lands at Vista Club.

Arriving at Privilege's sibling, Vista Club in the early hours, I was greeted by green illuminated Suara signs and Nick Curly playing A7L's Zero. I could see a good number of Coyu's cats ready for another congregation of house and techno. Many were wearing masks that disguised their eyes and accompanied primal step-touch dance moves. I could see their inner cat igniting and proving ready for a prowl.

Kitty curator, Coyu stepped to the turntables at 02:00, providing a little less house and a little more techno. He combined the likes of Medu's rolling remix of Subatomic Pussy and Definition Record's track B by Diskopizzeria. With an interesting set amalgamating irresistible vocal distortions and a prominent collection of high-hats, the crowd upped their game through their Balearic moves and sets of whistling.

The main focus in the room was the giant projector. Taking centre stage, it displayed impressive visuals looping all members of the cat species, including tabby cats, cheetahs and panthers. Symmetrically bouncing from one another, the production elements became more intense reflecting the progression of track choices by the Italian DJ.

As the music got heavier and the words, ‘What we want cannot be given to us' were projected on the screen, a few members of the crowd took a break from the dance floor. They gazed through the slanted perpendicular windows that blanketed around the clubroom, towering over the brightly lit Ibiza. Yes, a beautiful view to take a breather to.

Deetron was my favourite performance of the evening with his vinyl predominant set. The Swiss producer showed versatility with his dynamic track choices. With a KiNK Remix of the 1992 house anthem Sunshine by Unit 2 contrasting with loud thundery bass of Wbeeza's A116 and Ivan Demsoff's Look At That Girl, all brought acidic alliances into play.

Playing some of his own productions, Deetron included favourite of the evening Photon (Wp Dub), which certainly got the crowd moving with its groovy back-and-forth basslines. Soon he transgressed into party track Houze, originally produced by Honey Dijon. The interchanging of stylings really worked for Deetron as it gave a unique musical journey for attendees.

A successful evening for the calibre of the underground, we expect the busyness of the dancefloor to pick up even more in later Suara parties as more line-ups are announced.
