There wasn’t much calm but the storm came heavy. Deniz Koyu played to a packed house at The Estate last Friday night in downtown Boston. The refreshingly 21+ crowd was a pleasant change from that of Dayglow the previous Monday which felt more like a middle school dance than EDM show.
Koyu started out strong with Hardwell’s mashup of “Bong” and “Fade into Darkness”, aptly titled “Bong into Darkness“. From this point on he had the club-goers eating out of his hands by continuing to play a great high-energy set. Hard Rock Sofa’s “Here We Go” is always a crowd favorite and Koyu dropped it early into his set. He worked in “Cinema” before fully hitting his stride. From the second Koyu dropped his own remix of Zedd’s summer smash hit “Spectrum” (see below), he was in full swing and did not let up for the rest of the evening. He continued with Fedde La Grande’s “Praise You” remix, a sing along favorite for the crowd. Another true highlight came when Koyu mixed “Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker” with Tommy Trash’s remix to “The Veldt” by Canada’s most famous “Kat” lover Deadmau5.
Koyu began the last leg of his set by stringing together hit after hit, starting with R3hab & Swanky Tunes’ “Sending My Love” vs Bingo Players’ “L’Amore”. He then threw down his biggest hit “Tung” before showing some more Bingo Players bias by bumping “Rattle”. Koyu wrapped up this string of tracks with Dirty South’s “Coming Home” remix against the Luminox trap remix of “Epic“. The show concluded with more crowd favorites, including the Third Party “Otherside” remix and Axwell’s remix of “In My Mind” against Cassius’ “Why I Love You”. The night came to a close with a massive crowd sing-along of “Million Voices” and the current Dada Life single “Feed the Dada“. There were nothing but smiles leaving the packed venue at the end of the show. Estate helped put on a great event, not only maximizing floor space by elevating the stage VIP section, but by providing the crowd with a killer sound system. They also provided VIP tables with foam LED sticks that illuminated the dance floor all night (see pictures). This is definitely a great venue to check out whether or not a big-name DJ is in town and there will be plenty to choose from in the coming months: Cedric Gervais on October 12, Dirty South on October 24 and everyone’s favorite party starter/spelling completer Arty on November 7.
