Event Review: MAKJ @ Webster Hall [3.8.14]

March 12, 2014 -

Another Saturday Brite Nites at Webster Hall brought a packed house for the Peyote Tour with Drezo and MAKJ. Drezo kept it real with the Deep House tunes including Scotty Boy & Lorenzo, Coke Diet. Mackenzie took the stage at 1am sharp! I was fully aware of what this dude looks like, but I had no idea how tall he was! Damn son! The decks looked like a toy compared to his stature.


MAKJ started out with a remix of the beginning of Knife Party and Swedish House Mafia, Antidote, which he looped back around later on in his set to finish. Once again the fragile balcony bounced up and down as the VIP’s pounded their feet through the floor. Basement Jaxx, Where’s your head at blasted through the speakers, Michael Jackson’s Thriller made an appearance and Move Your Feet by Junior Senior did just that. Were we in a time warp? To the contrary, everything he played had his modern electro house spin on it making for one of the biggest dance parties Webster Hall has ever seen. Glowing acrobats hung from the ceiling, the front row got CO2 blasted in their faces, and champagne sprayed from the VIP balcony above.


Due to the dreadful fact that it was going to be 3am just an hour after the beginning of his set, he played for two hours straight and we all refused to end our nights just because the clock read 4am. Richard Beynon began to close out the night and rocked the crowd until the wee hours of the morning.


A few months ago, we had a chance to sit down with MAKJ and we’ll be catching up with him again in a couple of week during Miami Music Week. So, stay tuned to find out exactly what he’s been up to.
