Last night I saw DJ Koze and Robag Wruhme at Blkmarket Membership. I had seen both play before in Paris, but it was unfortunately at Social Club (a club for the most part full of underage “socialites” who are more concerned with their bottle service than the music). I enjoyed the music, but part of Robag’s appeal is creating a really personal connection with the dance floor. That’s what made seeing him last night so fulfilling. The location was great, the crowd was awesome and the tunes were incredible.
He came on at 5AM after Koze. Robag’s like the jolly Santa Claus of DJs. Music aside, there’s just something deeply satisfying about watching him hop around to his favorite songs sipping on champagne from the bottle (which he passed to my brother at one point). And yes, he does put the bottle on the spinning turntable. I guess it’s just great to witness someone so profoundly content with what they do. It’s impossible for that smile to not rub off on you! Combine his joy with the energy of the music and I guarantee you no other dance floor in the world can compare! Thanks for the great night. Photo cred to my brother and his unfortunately low res phone.
