Tanlines @ the Whitney
Tanlines

"The crowd warmed up - and got to dancing as the room filled up - but the most sonically-fulfilling moment of [Tanline's] set didn't come until the impromptu encore, when Cohen finally removed the mutes (read: t-shirts) from his floor tom and bongos and coaxed some really compelling percussion out of the non-computer side of the Tanlines setup. Overall, the pair pumped out a great set that suffered only slightly from the incongruous scales of the acoustics and the room.

DJ /rupture (Jace Clayton) followed quickly on Tanlines' heels, wasting none of the momentum attained in the last few minutes of their set, when the crowd finally reached room-filling proportions and tipped the balance from texting to dancing. Clayton spun a typically globe-trotting and scholarly set, his selections spanning five continents and at least as many languages. Dressed all in lavender and characteristically stoic behind the decks, he opened with a heavy Cumbia rhythm, and continued through cuts of reggaeton, dubstep and dancehall, also weaving in 90's house, some Akon, and something I'm pretty sure was in Hindi."
