Darude & Kristina Sky Recap

For all of the old school raver’s and Dance Dance Revolution fanatics, last Saturday was a trance filled night that Darude led us on before we hit the ‘Sandstorm’! But before the madness Phoria’s very own Christopher Terrance and Erika K set the mood for the night. If you missed out on the calm before the storm, never fear! You can listen and relive Erika K’s set and jam out while driving to work.

Up next on the decks is a rising star in the trance scene, Kristina Sky. After experiencing her set last Saturday it was no wonder that Armada and Ultra had her signed up with their labels. The transition between her and Erika K was in sync, keeping the cool beats going for the first half of her set, then brought in the FIRE. Kristina Sky brought the crowd to the dance floor, everyone dancing their feet off, and brought the feels when everyone sang along to ‘Reload’ with her own trance spin. It was hard to believe that we had another 2 hours, because Darude was just about ready to blow our minds.

For those of you who only know Darude because of ‘Sandstorm’, I hope you all realized that he is more than just that hit single. He started off the night getting groovy with Oliver Helden and Tiesto’s newest collaboration

When he threw down Eric Prydz ‘Generate’ my fellow Asian, Airec Syprasert, and I went nuts; Darude really knew how to work the crowd up! I got the chance to talk to fellow attendees of the night and many were surprised with Darude’s set because they only knew him as the creator of one song, but in reality he is so much more than what we make him out to be. Darude continued to destroy us with massive tunes for the rest of the night and then we heard what we had all been waiting for…DUNDUNDUNDUN. Screaming. Dun dundundun. That’s right, it was finally time for the ‘Sandstorm’! I can’t even begin to tell you how many people were breaking out their DDR moves in the back and caused an earthquake.

With that Darude took his leave and let Kristina Sky take over the decks, then to Michael Bricker, who debuted his very first trance set! Bricker opened up with MaRLo’s ‘Ignite’ and threw down other tracks such as ‘Dark Matter’ from Standerwick, ‘Rebound’ from Photographer, and my personal favorite ‘Cusp’ from Seven Lions. Although he doesn’t normally play trance, Bricker closed out the night strong!

Thank you to everyone that made it out last Saturday night and get ready for our next Phoria event on December 26th, Jerome Isma-ae OPEN TO CLOSE!
