What happens when you take two up and coming international edm acts and put them in an intimate club environment where only a few feet separate the crowd from the DJ? Well White Rabbit Group took that question and then emphatically answered it with their Friday weekly series Exposé at the Heat Ultra Lounge in Anahiem California. With memories of Coachella still dancing through my head I knew that I could not stay home this past Friday, and with the only Melbourne Bounce at Coachella being the hologram of Deorro, I knew I had to get out to Exposé to catch Uberjakd and New World Sound kick the heat up at Expose.
I arrived with my group of friends a little late to the event and walked up to the club that was literally shaking from the sound that was coming inside. I was instantly greeted by my friend and Event Manager at Exposé Dillon Manning and my group headed inside the dark club dosed in deep purple lights, accompanied by the occasional strobe that gives one the feeling that they are stepping into the Yuma tent at Coachella. This wasn’t my first time at Exposé and the vibe is definitely always on point. The dance floor fills up quickly, however that is never a problem as you can easily see the DJ from the back. This front to back intimacy combined with the artists that White Rabbit puts on the stage is a recipe for one incredible night, and that feeling was in the air as Uberjakd took the stage.
The rhythmic pulses and booty shaking nature of Melbourne Bounce pulled us on to the dance floor. When we got up to the dance floor I witnessed an interesting sight, as the crowd was pushing a giant inflatable goose raft around like it was a beach ball. It was definitely something you don’t see very often in a small venue like Heat. And although he had the entire crowd in full party mode from the beginning of his set Uberjakd best moment was when he dropped Whistle Bounce and it felt as if the entirety of the dance floor was bouncing along.
After Uberjakd the duo of New World Sound took the stage which was a perfect way to keep the bounce going. New World Sound are some of my favorite bounce producers and all of their tracks have the feel of a grimy bouncy circus. There was no shortage of this deep bounce as they dropped banger after banger for an eager crowd hungry to dance. Even though I couldn’t stay for all of New World Sound’s set I was able to catch their signature track Flute before I headed home. The infectious flute melody accompanied by the bouncy pulsing bass had the crowd worked into a chaotic dancing frenzy.
With White Rabbit Group’s flagship night Havoc, selling out weekly at a large venue, Exposé offers music fans a chance to see up and coming artists in a really awesome setting that only White Rabbit Group can deliver.
