Club Report: Pacha (New York)

Saturday night in the Big Apple and spending it at Pacha, the New York outlet of the famous Ibiza nightclub!
DJ Neb was in the booth in the mezzanine playing Hip Hop.
Meanwhile the early crowd was just starting to congregate on the main dance floor.
It was the night of the Australian invasion with DJ Wax Motif (AUS) coming on at 11pm.
Dance floor quickly went from spartan to crowded to.....
Wax Motif mixing an occasional Hip Hop beat with nearly all House.
He was pretty animated, bouncing around a bunch and chatting with the crowd!
Some clubs can get overheated when it's crowded but Pacha stayed comfortable, at least down on the floor.  The place is always rated in the Top 10 in North America but it must be because of the world class DJ's that play here, not because of the facilities themselves. The sound system is good but the lighting equipment is limited and pillars throughout the dance floor make for poor sightlines for many clubbers. They had a smoke machine.
But first time I had seem Wax Motif play and I enjoyed his set.
Someone that I had seen play before came up next, DJ Anna Lunoe (AUS).
I saw her play last year at EDC - Chicago.
Her set all House and Deep House with an occasional Top 40 House tune.
Dance floor stayed beyond comfortable with a lot of bumping and grinding going on!
I had come to see DJ Tommy Trash (AUS) but with me having to get up early today to head to the cruise terminal, I cut out before he came on.
Through the fog, Anna Lunoe was nice to see again though!
A good time was had by all!
