Hitting The Trap House With GLAdiator and JayKode

Last Saturday, I woke up in a daze to a room that looked like something straight out of a Gucci Mane music video. I tried thinking of what could have possible happened the night before to cause this and then I remembered that trap lords GLAdiator were in town for Havoc's special Friday night event. Having sold out 4 out of their last 5 shows, it is no surprise that our friends White Rabbit Group were able to put together yet another wildly successful event. Even though we were at the Yost just a day before, we had to roll out again with the squad to catch an epic night with not only GLAdiator, but also up and coming producer JayKode, with Hush and Svcred.

Hush and Svcred opened up the night turning it up from the get go to get the anxious crowd going as people piled in through the doors. Normally when you go out to the club at 10 pm you expect there to be plenty of room still on the dance floor and all around. But this was a special night and the two openers had the dance floor packed before it even their sets even ended. I had to step outside for a quick breather to remind myself that the craziness was yet to come.


JayKode then hit the stage and took over the crowd with crazy trap and his signature "Classical Bass" sound. (Read more about that in our interview with him here). Being a big fan of his music, I was so glad to see that everyone in the building was getting down to his set which was packed full of originals and remixes. Before midnight there it was already madness and I didn't think that the crowd could go any harder than they were. But knowing these Havoc-Heads, I was dead wrong. When JayKode dropped Beehive, his first release with Buygore, the crowd went nuts and broke out into an insane moshpit. You could even see the security guard who was trying to break it up at one point say "F*ck it" and mosh harder than everyone else around him. I can't explain how happy we were that we got to watch JayKode grow so much over the past year and then see him kill it at our favorite event.


Finally GLAdiator took control and began killing it right off the bat, playing a very well rounded set so that everyone from the bassheads to the shufflers got a taste of what they needed to hear. It was just as amazing as I expected it to be and I basically had my elbows locked in the trap position throughout their entire set. Just when I thought the night could not get any crazier, GLAdiator cut the music. They got on the mic and began talking about how right now something very special was going to happen that would change two people's lives. Sure enough, a Havoc-Head got down on one knee and proposed to his trap queen right in the middle of the dance floor. She said yes, the two kissed and the turn up resumed. That was one of the most perfect proposals I've seen, with the newly engaged couple both rocking Havoc hats while going mad to GLAdiator's insane set to celebrate their engagement. The trap duo then continued to close out the night with the crowd still pulling strong till the very end.



This was yet another successful night at The Yost and I can't wait for the next one. Be sure to come out this week to catch the triple headliner show featuring Timmy Trumpet, Boombox Cartel, and Far Too Loud. Get your tickets here and remember that Thursdays are for Havoc.
