Blaqstarr - DJ - 11pm-12am

There’s a term DJs use when talking with each other that describes an experience all of them strive for but that isn’t always achieved. The term is “club banger,” or “club killer,” and while different DJ crews in different places around the world probably have their own variation on the wording, what the term describes is always the same: a song or record, often new but familiar, that is dropped at the right time during a set; a tune that taps into the immediate energy happening at a club or house party and then pushes it over the edge sending the dancefloor into a communal frenzy.

Along with new compositions likened to its predecessor, the postmodern spiritual is freedom music for the 21st century.
