It was a cool night in New York City as bassheads lined the streets outside of the historic, Webster Hall. Nick Catchdubs was getting the Fool’s Gold party started in the Studio and the top 40’s were bumpin’ in the Marlin Room. But upstairs in the Grand Ballroom, it was a whole other world. Bass was pumping from D.J Dali’s decks as the crowd below grew in anticipation of Protohype’s arrival. Once he took over the decks, some all too familiar faces showed up on stage behind him: RekLes, Alex English, DJ Darku J, Hiyawatha, and FIGHT CLVB to name a few.
Max started off right with some HEAVY bass to the face, dropping his newest UKF release, Downfall as well as Crazy, throwing in some trap with RL Grime & What So Not, Tell Me, and even a remix of Hard Knock Life. I can tell you that he is one humble guy who is appreciative of all those who have contributed to his success thus far. His own mother was rocking out on stage the entire set and at one point he even pulled her over to the booth to introduce her to the crowd and also to thank her. How sweet!
Cali native, Valentino Khan went on to rock the crowd into the wee hours of the morning. His original mixes, Fahrenheit and Twerk 4 Gold, along with his bootleg of Gesaffelstein, Control Movement kept the crowd on their feet while his Fu Manchu mustache kept their eyes on the stage.
