PLUS MI­NUS FEAT. JAMES ZA­BIELA @ LEVEL 41

Infusion Magazine - - LOOKING BACK -

By now ev­ery­one’s prob­a­bly al­ready been to a party hosted on Level 41 of the Me­dia One Ho­tel, but in case you haven’t, we can’t rec­om­mend it enough. A dark room, re­laxed dress code and no f*** ing sparklers in sight, this a place for pro­mot­ers to cater to mu­sic lovers with­out the pos­ing you get at other clubs, and who bet­ter than to throw a gig like this than Plus Mi­nus. Sure, the pro­duc­tion was a lit­tle rough around the edges. but so is the venue and although you can’t es­cape ta­bles in this city, at least they were kept out of the way of the dance floor.

Gabriel Flo­ri­ani was the man on warm up du­ties from mid­night and although the room was swel­ter­ing, he kept his cool and played out a qual­ity set, keep­ing things sub­dued un­til Zabs was ready to roll. James worked his way through a num­ber of gen­res, matched only in va­ri­ety by the tech­ni­cal equip­ment that he kept pulling out of his bag to work into his per­for­mance ( and we’re pretty sure we saw a rab­bit hid­ing out in there too). The clued- up crowd was en­tranced, with the pro­gres­sive melodic num­bers get­ting a huge re­sponse. We were gut­ted that the wiz­ard only had an hour and a half to work with though - we can’t wait un­til he’s back in town.
