We wouldn’t be at all surprised if EDM fans, who partied into the wee morning hours at the Blockley last night, awoke this morning, still basking in the glow of a crazy good time.
Party people were literally basking in the glow of UV lighting all evening as they packed the venue starting at 8pm for Glow Jam. Presented by Dubsef, Glow Jam featured a line-up of many up-and-coming local DJ’s, as well as headliner DallasK from Orlando, FL.
Fans were encouraged to wear all white attire to the Blockley to add to the Glow theme. In addition to black-lighting, there was body painting by Bodypaint.ME, endless supplies of glow-bracelets, and several glow-hoopers. There were also several female dancers who appeared on the main stage, performing with the DJ’s.
The main room was split down the middle and divided into two separate areas, one for ages 18-20, and the other for those 21 and over. The was also a 2nd room open on the under 21 side that featured DJ’s Sweekuh, Jack Deezl, David Vaux, Amit Gera, and Ruff-Ducketz.
The party kicked off on the main stage just after 8pm with the band Nomad Tam. They were the only non-DJ act to perform.
Up next was Dirty Dave who, true to his name, dropped some dirty beats and laid a nice foundation for the rest of the night. At this point the under 21 area was quickly filling up, with a nice size crowd on the legal (drinking age) side as well.
The venue continued to fill up and the good times continued as BHB took over on the decks. A member of Actual Records, his name has been popping up at more and more events in the Philly and NYC area. Keep an eye on this guy.
What’s the best way to transition from a talented up-and-coming DJ to the headliner? With the event host of course. In addition to throwing Glow Jam and serving as the MC, Dubsef also threw down one hell of a set. His high energy track selection and antics on stage (he even took a moment for some Tebowing) make this guy a crowd favorite (as was evident from the “Dubsef” chants that rang out numerous times).
The glowing yellow star that was painted on his cheek may just be indicative of what the future holds for Dubsef. He’ll rock the decks, the mic, and the stage…just don’t ask him to drink any tap water, he hates that.
With the party at a fever pitch, and the Blockley more packed than we’ve ever seen it before, DallasK made his way to the stage and dropped a headliner worthy set on the crowd. The rest of the night was a hot, energy filled blur.
When it finally came to end, with fans chanting for one more song, the venue emptied out, revealing a sea of glow bracelets that covered the floor.
From there, the party continued at the Salty Taco at the Bodypaint.me studios.
Dubsef will be hosting the BASSment party on February 1st at Rumor when Art of Electronica presents a night with Nadastrom. He and BHB will both be playing opening sets.
