It was good to have Sander Van Doorn back in town since his last appearance at the Ocean Club back in August. I’m usually not one to venture out to shows on Sunday nights, but I’m really glad I came out to The Estate for this one. SvD couldn’t have had two better openers than Kaeno and Julian Jordan. Kaeno saw his way to fame from starting out with his weekly radio show called “The Vanishing Point” which is now one of the top rated global podcasts syndicated through iTunes, Party107.com & Sirius / XM Satellite Radio. He plays a beautiful variety of different types of electronic music from trance to minimal to dance. I was really impressed by his set and the crowd seemed to be as well. He had everyone getting right out onto the dance floor from the minute the place opened!
Speaking of being impressed, the other opener was the 17-year old Julian Jordan from The Netherlands. He without a doubt also contributed in smashing the place, one set at a time. His big progressive sounds had the place bumpin’ from wall to wall. It’s always fun to watch artists who are eager to perform for a great crowd. Both of the dudes played top-notch sets and did more than an amazing job hyping up the crowd to a perfect level of wild before Sander took over control.
I’d say it was a pretty intimate show, seeing that The Estate is a lot smaller than other venues. Those are the kind of venues I prefer, but I’m definitely not saying I’m against big shows. After being at so many bigger shows throughout festival season, it’s sort of a relief to be able to enjoy a show with a legendary artist like Sander Van Doorn in a smaller setting. I find it easier for not only the crowd to connect with the performer, but also vice versa. Thankfully, it wasn’t the type of show where it’s impossible to relocate during the show either. Although it was crowded, you could easily get right up to the front and put your face right into the action if you wanted and no one would fight you to get out of their front row spot.
I definitely felt good vibes from everyone all throughout the night, which I was definitely a fan of. I watched from all different areas around the venue and decided that I liked the back the most. It was where you could get the best view of the ridiculous light show. The lasers had the crowed talking about how cool they were the entire time. It was fun to watch them change and illuminate the room for the duration of SvD‘s unbelievable set. Aside from the fact that there was a fantastic energy pulsating throughout the crowd, everything suddenly got a lot better. He must’ve channeled his inner-Ke$ha, because out of nowhere something magical happened. An insane amount of glitter started falling from the ceiling and I loved every second of it. Sander threw down some absolute fire and the entire production and all of the performances of the night were remarkable.
