Thursday November 29th, 2012 house music rockstar Fedde Le Grand came to Beta nightclubs NRG Thursdays as a stop on his Dark Light Sessions North America Takeover tour and Prime Studios was there to cover it. Arriving at early at 10PM there was no one in the VIP line and we got right in. After dancing to Tommy Michael's set for a half hour we ventured outside. To our surprise the line was now insanely long! The VIP line stretched from the VIP entrance all the way up to Blake street with the GA line running down 19th and curving around. We knew it was going to be a night fill with energy.
Following Tommy Michael was Ecotek. He kept the crowed pumped up for the next hour or so until Fedde Le Grand came on. Once Fedde hit the stage the energy increased even more and lasted till close at 2AM. Although a house DJ, Fedde played a very assorted set ranging from his signature style to hits like Swedish House Mafia's "Greyhound" to Calvin Harris's "Feel So Close to You" to and awesome remix of "Cinema". In fact it seemed as though he played more remixes of other's songs than he played his own hits.
Throughout the night the CO2 cannons blasted making the crowd go crazier (fun fact Fedde Le Grand was the headliner the night Beta premiered them). The crowd was feeling the love for Fedde when he dropped his hit "So Much Love" but the weren't really loving their fellow attendees. It was hard to get close to the front if you hadn't been there from the beginning and people didn't want to let anyone though. The dance floor, upper level bar, and cat walk were as packed as we had seen in a very long time. The only slight detractor from the night was the emcee who tried to engage the crowd at several points in the night. He just seemed as though he was trying to hard and it slightly took away form the over all experience. Aside from Fedde himself put on an amazing show with an epic set.
At the end of the night Siri was once again lucky enough to go up say hi, thank you and get a picture with Fedde making the night all that much grander.
