Review: Super8 and Tab @ Webster Hall

Upon arrival to Webster Hall there were many floors to choose from, all of which were playing different music. There was the BASSMENT featuring heaving dubstep/trap, the main floor playing top 40 and classics, and on the third floor was the Finnish trance duo Super8 and Tab.

Once you stepped on the floor and walked to their set, a wave of difference could be felt in terms of the crowd compared to the rest of the venue. The Brite Nites floor was flowing with a sea of ravers and music lovers bopping and and waving to the trance tracks of Super8 and Tab. They have a sound reminiscent to the Swedish house acts like Alesso or Sebastian Ingrosso. But the pair has a unique sound all their own, with melodies that lead to epic climaxes and reach beautiful drops. One recognizable song was "The Way You Want," featured in our interview with the duo. The song sounded incredible live, as it blasted through the massive speakers Webster Hall had provided them. The excited crowd was stomping and dancing throughout the entire set--which was close to four hours long. Without a doubt, Super8 & Tab know how to put on a show, and are destined to stardom if they continue on this route.

Interview: Super8 and Tab

The Finnish trance music duo, Super8 and Tab, will be hitting New York City this weekend. They will be spinning all night at Webster Hall this Saturday, September 14, as a part of the venues’ Brite Nites event. The duo has been killing it since they decided to join forces back in 2005. With their debut album, Empire, released in 2010 and a bunch of remixes under their belt, the boys have a nice collection of songs they are ready to showcase. One of them being their newest single “The Way You Want” – an energetic song that never loses a step and builds up into one of the nicest trance tracks that we’ve heard in a while.

World of Chocolate

It is actually possible to overdose on chocolate. In commemoration of World AIDS Day, guests at the World of Chocolate did just that, indulging their chocolate cravings while raising funds to fight HIV/AIDS. Celebrity judges like Sarah Levy of Sarah's Candies and chocolatier Fritz Knipschildt judged the chocolate vendors for sweetest booth, most creative use of chocolate and best tasting chocolate treat.

Guests relived the '70s with dark chocolate Tab floats and the Illinois Nut and Candy Company even celebrated the new Illinois Civil Union Law with darling LGBT chocolate sculptures.
