Saturday night (/Sunday morning) CityFox took over a large warehouse around Bedstuy that was probably not originally constructed to house 10pm-8am parties organized by a bunch of Swiss people.
Thankfully it has come to that…
Immediately upon entering, you walked through a dark tunnel illuminated by strips of bright green light. As you reached the end, you felt very far from the bodegas and quiet Brooklyn street.
or sometimes red…

The first, and main room was being warmed up for Diynamic heavy weight/Captain Solomun. He stayed true to his signature sound. As a big Prydz fan, one of my favorite moments was a looonnggg drawn out inclusion of On/Off.
and of course this gem of a remix…
As Solomun wrapped up his set (He’d later return to support Adriatique and reportedly play a 3+ hour set around 9am) I ran over to catch David August. Making the remarkable error of missing him last time, I was beyond excited.
Jumping around with the beat throughout the set, you could tell August was excited to play as well. The guy is a phenomenal producer, incredible DJ, and puts on one of the best live sets I’ve ever seen. He was playing the piano, he was dropping bombs, he was transporting the side stage to another world…
After picking up the pieces of my brain off the ground, I ran over to catch Adriatique. They played some huge tunes and kept the energy really high. At that point I wanted to keep things a little smoother and a little more intimate.
H.O.S.H. was just that! It was the perfect way for me to wrap up my night. Similar to when we saw Luciano (at Time Warp), I felt there was a rhythm and flare H.O.S.H. provided that had been missing throughout the night.
Anyway, the people, the artists, the lights, the sound system, the bar, even security – BRAVO CityFox – Bravo.
Be sure to snag your ticket for NYE. It’s a no-brainer.
