DUST feat. Trus ’Me @ The Base­ment

Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING BACK - – FIn­lay Le­fox

Mixol­o­gist Jonny Thorn­hill opened up pro­ceed­ings, fir­ing out a mix of trop­i­cal, jazz- in­flu­enced Chicago house beats on two floor- to­ceil­ing stacks of Funk­tion One speak­ers. In fact it was hard to keep up with the dif­fer­ent gen­res as he was pretty much smash­ing them all, my favourite tune from him had to be ‘ Deep in the bow­els of house’ track by ‘ MCDE’ which set the tone for the night.

Next up was ‘ Trus Me, la­bel owner of Prime Num­bers and the pro­ducer of soul edged house and techno tracks who has en­joyed world wide suc­cess. He opened his set with the stomp­ing techno track ‘ I Want You’ by Alan Fitz­patrick and from then on in it was pump­ing techno beats which got heav­ier as the night went on.

The Aus­tralian head­liner went on play­ing rolling techno beats un­til I heard a sneaky New Or­der ‘ Blue Mon­day’ remix which the crowd went in to a frenzy. In the last 45 min­utes he switched it up to his funky soul­ful col­lec­tion of house mu­sic that I’m told he is best known for and went down re­ally well, closing on the stripped back Matthew Her­bert edit of Moloko’s ‘ Sing It Back’ for a crowd sing- a- long. Big ups to the Dust crew for keep­ing their bookings fresh as al­ways.
