Just got back from a full-on Techno assault hosted by Void at Yauca Sports Bar – a heretofore unheard of little spot on Dundas W. The boys, Rouchos and WestsideWax, rented a Dynacord system for the night and the place was pumpin! I’ve heard Dynacord in action at larger venues but this was the first time I’ve heard it used in a smaller space. I would’ve liked to have arrived earlier for the soundcheck just to see how the rig can be configured…
Yauca is like most bars in the west-end, long and narrow. However, with 2 floors of dancing this place has promise – I think I saw a flyer advertising a free DnB weekly there on Fridays….
Over the course of a couple of hours I was treated to a great cross-section of techno expertly mixed on 3 decks with real honest-to-god vinyl!
And, discovered the versatility of the Behringer DDM4000 DJ Mixer. Usually I am nonplussed when it comes to Behringer’s dj series, however I was impressed by the layout and functionality of this beast of a mixer. Of particular interest to me was that the mixer has 2 freely assignable and, BPM-synchronized, FX engines allwoing for more on board control than what I’ve played with so far.
Although the turnout was a little sparse I have to commend Void for stepping up and putting on a quality show that both heads and the non-initiated could groove on. A free party with Dynacord and Techno talent…more please.
Here’s a sampling….
I think they recorded the night – there were some gems played that had me sniffin’ around the record bags lookin’ for a glimpse 😉
