DSC_0219The place smelled of fresh White Oriental Lilies as I strolled into Slake just around midnight last Saturday. The largest amount of people I’ve seen occupy the building and it was for the premier of Slake’s new Saturday night, Technoir.  The bartenders were pouring and the tunes were bumping in 4 separate rooms.

was spinnin’ some dirty  beats on the main stage preparing for the up coming trio. The two cages on the far wall were busy with sexual party patrons letting loose within the steel bars.

The room silenced and a recognizable “M” lit up behind three familiar faces. The unusual graphics of The M Machine style displayed and Moon Song started to blast.  Going crazy, while elbowing the girl sitting next to me in the head, (I was in VIP and she wasn’t even facing the right way!) I could sing along to every song. However, that wasn’t the case for a lot of the crowd. You could definitely decipher the true Machine fans from those there to soak up Slake's ambiance.

After Rekles, I think most people thought the next set was going to be a rager. And it definitely was, at times, with tracks like the remix of Dog Blood, Middle Finger and a remix of their own Ghosts in the Machine. However, The M Machine is known for their beautifully composed and somewhat softer tracks like Tiny Anthem and Faces and they stood true to their sound. I scaled the right wall in order to find a spot up front where I fought to be where a rightful fan should be and remained there for the rest of the set. Humble as they are, Ben, Eric, and Andy came out and shook fan hands, thanking them for amazing support.


After such an incredible opening night for Technoir Saturday’s at Slake, check out what they have coming up, cause this party ain't going to let up anytime soon.
