Once again, we are back to tell you about another wild night at the Yost Theatre with our friends White Rabbit Group. Having seen that they have thrown some of the craziest weekly events that we have ever saw, our expectations were high and as usual they did not disappoint. For this week’s madness we had the pleasure of seeing Huglife and Tastytreat perform and it was an amazing night to say the least.
Dre opened up the night with a set with an interesting set filled with a variety of hard house, twerk, and hip hop. He kept everyone groovin’ as the crowd slowly poured in through the doors of the Yost. At around 11:30, the floor began to get packed with dedicated Havoc fans all enjoying Dre’s set.

Tastytreat then took the stage shortly after and hit us with some chill beats to set the mood while the crowd was getting settled in. Moving on, the Santa Barbara duo started dropping some deep house, featuring classic’s like Neville Bartos’ Coke Diet. Right as the crowd began getting comfortable with the house vibes, Tastytreat switches it up with some heavy experimental trap that had everybody in the building getting down. With the crowd hyped up, Tastytreat cut the music and got on the mic to give a disclaimer that went something like this: “I never though we’d play a Justin Bieber song but this shit bangs”. They then went and dropped an insane remix of J.biebs that went just as hard as expected. Tastytreat finished off their set by playing a few of their own original tracks, which was quite the treat indeed.

Huglife Music then came out dropping heavy, bass filled beats that got the entire dance floor turning up with the intensity of the music. After pounding our eardrums with booming bass, Huglife moved into some chiller vibes while still keeping it trappy. Of course as the night progressed, Huglife got into some weirder sounds, playing out tracks by up and coming producers like Troyboi, all of whom we have watched closely. Even though his set was largely electronic, Huglife was not dettered from using flipping on vinyl mode on the CDJ’s and cutting and scratching throughout the entirety of his set. This made gave the set a personal touch that can’t be replicated by just pressing the sync button.

I was personally amazed at the turn out for the night even though EDC:LV was starting the following day. There were many die-hard Havoc Heads that made the journey out to Las Vegas right after the show was over, showing a kind of dedication that is hard to come by these days. It becomes obvious that these loyal Havoc fans go harder than your average dance music fans and that is part of the reason this weekly event is one of our favorite shows to come out to.
