Club Report: Suite B Lounge

Taking advantage of the holiday weekend and headed out one more time; Suite B Lounge for "Breakin In The House", a mix of Breaks & House.
With more Breakbeats from DJ 21 Paths when I arrived.
Then some really hard Breaks from DJ Renato Guirao!
Decent crowd on hand on this Sunday evening!
Grooving to the music!
Didn't get to see him play Saturday night at Firestone so didn't dare miss this second chance to see the amazing DJ Andy Hughes (USA)!

 No more Breaks from Hughes though.  He would spend the next hour spinning a House / Deep House set that began with the "Shiny Disco Balls" song from Mannequins!
Spotted: Party animal Shawn Fenn with Atlanta DJ Peach Bella, sporting their official Reunion t-shirts!
Amazing Andy Hughes set!  DJ Brad Smith getting ready to take over at 1:15am.
Mr. Smith would continue with a House / Dubsteppy set!
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!
Spotted with DJ Andy Hughes: Miami's Lissi & Sarah V.
And a good time was had by all!

Concert Report: The Reunion (Firestone Live)

Downtown Orlando must have been deserted last night because it seems that everyone was at Firestone Live for The Future Sound of Breaks Reunion!
Walked-in around 10:30pm and the club was already wall-to-wall packed!
Making a rare appearance, veteran DJ Noel Sanger playing Old Skool.
Even the upstairs was open and jammed!
The music last night mostly 90's & 00's Classic Dance hits that you used to hear on 95.3Party!
Mister Future Sound of Breaks himself, MC Headius Maximus.
Spotted nearby: DJ LadyV.  No one does crop tops better than Sarah V!
Coming on at 11:30pm, DJ duo 2 Bad Mice (GB).
Lots of Classic Dance including their monster anthem "Bombscare"!
Getting down!
Outside on the patio, DJ duo RobE & Security (USA).
There was little room to move out here either!
Back inside, headliner DJ Icey (USA) taking over at 12:30am!
Lots of roars from the crowd as he put on more classic hits from back in the day!
Mannequins!
More Mannequins!
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls! Especially Kriss!

Taking it to the hoop.....Jen!
Spotted: DJ Pedro V.
After Icey finished, Florida Breaks DJ duo Friction & Spice (USA) took over to close it out!
A good time was had by all!

Club Report: Bikkuri Sushi Lounge

If you drove by Bikkuri Sushi on Colonial Drive, you'd never know that located at the rear upstairs was a dance club!
Where on the last Friday of every month they host "Lost In Trancelation", a night dedicated to Trance music featuring resident DJ Robb Blak.
And on this rainy Orlando evening last night, things did not look promising as this lone dancer occupied the floor and only a handful of people stood around watching.
But all-of-a-sudden, streams of people were coming in and going straight onto the dance floor!
The music was all non-vocal Trance including some of his own productions. We've seen Robb Blak open for Ferry Corsten (NL), Gareth Emery (GB) and Cosmic Gate (D) in recent years!
Dance floor got full as people practiced their Trance moves!
Resident DJ Agni taking over at midnight, opening with a Vocal Trance song!
Pretty amazing experience!
The crowd was really getting into it!
And a good time was had by all!
