On October 25th Laidback Luke was to perform at Pier of Fear for his Super You & Me event. Unfortunately, due to permit issues, Super You & Me had to be cancelled leaving thousands of fans who were ready to rage without a party. Never one to let fans down, Laidback Luke and event coordinators were able to move quickly and switch the party venue over to Pacha. They also took the opportunity to change the theme of the night from super hero to a full out Halloween party. On his Facebook page, Laidback apologized for any inconveniences and promised to make it up to everyone. Later on that night at Pacha, that is exactly what he did.
To accommodate the special event, Pacha opened its doors at 9PM. Large numbers of fans, dressed in all kinds of crazy and sexy costumes quickly packed Pacha soon after. Laidback Luke had some friends in the house to warm up the crowd before his set. DJ’s Tom Swoon, Moska, Gladiator and Deniz Koyu did a great job of keeping the dance floor moving and the party rocking. By the time Deniz Koyu finished his amazing set, the main floor at Pacha was super jam-packed, everybody dancing and attempting to get a good view of the DJ booth in anticipation of Laidback Luke. Big foam yellow hands were given out to the crowd with the words “Throw Up Your Double L’s”.
After Deniz Koyu set, it was Laidback Luke time! LBL came out wearing an old school Batman costume and the crowd went crazy. He wasted no time and got right to business of keeping his earlier promise. He wasted no time and immediately dropped banger after banger, getting the crowd jumping with huge foam Double L’s raised high in the air. Throughout the beginning of his set LBL continued dropping smashing big room drops such as “Eat, Sleep, Rave, Repeat”. Laidback got a huge reaction out of the crowd when he dropped Carnage and Tony Junior’s “Michael Jordan'. The crowd at Pacha joined in loudly on tracks such as Wynter Gordon’s “Dirty Talk”. There was even an impressive mix of the old school “Welcome to the Jungle” to the new school version by Alvaro and Mercer which had the crowd in a frenzy.
It would have been easy to call it a night after the bad news about Pier of Fear. Fortunately Laidback Luke stayed true to his promise and delivered an absolutely incredible set which had fans forgetting all about the earlier cancellation. On Saturday, October 25th Laidback Luke proved that not only is he an immensely talented DJ but that, just as importantly, he is an artist truly dedicated to his fans.
