Club Report: Techno at Latin Quarter!
One place you can find techno music from time-to-time at CityWalk is none other than the Latin Quarter. This might be the last place you'd expect to hear that kind of Dance music but the truth is, you're almost as likely to hear it at LQ than you are at The Groove! Last night was no exception with Latin Quarter's resident DJ Leony playing one of his "House Sets". How does the crowd react? By literally running up to the dance floor. When played, these Dance music sets typically last only 15-20 minutes at which time he has to reach back to his core audience. But when the music is on, it's on. Saturday Night update: At LQ, another House set by DJ Leony. At The Groove, a DJ I had not seen previously was substituting for DJ AJ and while most of his song selections were sos, the last half hour had a lot of us repeating "Mannequins song" quite often!
DJ Leony spins his style of high-energy Latin music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. He is also a DJ at Orlando's MEGA 98.1 Latin station. But he has roots in techno music, particularly Progressive House, and he has his own one hour techno show on Sirius/XM Radio. If you subscribe, tune in station BPM (Sirius 36/XM 81) on Friday night/Saturday morning at 1AM EDT/10PM PDT.
