Zoo Day 2
Day 2 of any serious partying has become my downtime day. I relax try to catch as many DJs as possible but maintain a clear head. I don’t mind wilden out to any one performer by myself. I know a lot of people go as a huge group and “rage” together but for me its all about the music. As long a the beat is right and the transitions smooth I am happy just bouncing away in a crowd of strangers. This is exactly what happened for a great portion of the day. I did run into a ton of people DJ Hill, my boys Blad and Richie as well as the infamous Brooklyn Crew(always rolls many people deep). So here is the adventure that was EZOO Day 2.
Arrived relatively early at around 230pm and right away I realized that there was double the amount of people at EZoo from Friday. I guess this is because most of New York works hard during the week and you just can hope to pack out a venue on a weekday. Anyhow I jetted over to Sidney Samson tent to catch some Dirty Dutch music! It was fun and I just got into the crowd and let the Dirty beats take over. After a good half hour I remembered that I promised by boy JFLO that I would finally see Beardyman and that exactly what I did at the Redbull arena and I was impressed. His beatboxing was on a whole other level. JFLO just so you know you def got this cause everything you do now is good enough to compete on his level, except festival experience and range of accapelas memorized. After Beardyman was the really young Porter Robinson who is honestly bringing a completely new breed of mixing to the table. Instead of just bringing in a song and letting it chill till the near end, Porter does not rest. He use samples as well as quick transitions and live looping that allow for multiple songs to drop and the crowd just keeps going crazy.
I received notification that Sander van Doorn was kicking it at the main stage and I jetted over to catch the tail end of his set and I was very disappointed in missing so much. He really went hard and didn’t let NYC rest at all. NYC is a tough crowd to please and his wild mix of techno, trance and electro/house kept them happy. Sander closed up and I ran quickly to get in the water line, which was out of control and I was forced to go to vendors and ask for ice and water from their hoses. I slowly worked myself over to the BK crowd and chilled for a bit. I knew that I could find DJ Hill at the Sunday School Groove tent and I ventured over there to check out Luciano and the rest of the out of control underground djs.
All I got to say is that Sunday School tent is crazy and the quality of sound there is the best out of all the stages. The subs in such a small tent pump out so much power and as the sun sets the music gets louder and louder. Luciano, Carl Craig, Reboot and Danny Tenaglia tore up that stage and my legs paid the price. I enjoy hearing new music and the beats that were dropped at Sunday School were unknown to me and this will motivate me to search search search. Dirty South also killed it today and he was dropping bangers left and right. All his classics as well as the remix Save the World remix by Dirty South. The night ended with Ferry Corsten and he knows what white people love aka Cold Play and nice melodic tunes.
So I was very pleased with the second day of EZOO there was a bigger crowd which made each tent feel packed out and cozy. The huge crowd brought the Zoo to life and brought fresh energy to the island. The craziness is going to continue in nine hours. Good night and good luck!
