I arrive at the venue at around 10, about midway through Barron’s set. The young producer was really starting to get the fledgling crowd going when sound system issues cut him off. Fortunately the sound crew at the Georgia Theater were able to get it taken care of within about 15 min.
After Barron finished doing his thing, Rekoil came out for his turn. His set started out with a deeper, more chilled out vibe but gradually progressed into an incredibly well polished heavy bass set that prepared the now raucous for the main event. Popular Atlanta production duo, Mantis, were also in the building much to the delight of many dubstep enthusiasts.
Unfortunately, the venue was unable to accommodate Datsik’s live rig known as “The Vortex”. However that certainly did not stop him from putting on an absolutely smashing show for the loyal fans in Athens. His set, which went on for 2 hours and some change, left absolutely nobody in the crowd disappointed. His mix covered pretty much every major genre of bass music with dubstep, drumstep, drum n’ bass, trap and glitch hop all included.
Neither myself or anybody in the crowd was happy when he had to end things but it was definitely a night to remember!
