Concert Report: DJ Jordan Suckley (Bikkuri Lounge)

They want you to think that this is just a sushi & noodle bar.  And indeed, if you were just driving by, that's what it would seem to be. But that's just a front. Because in the back alley, there's an unmarked entrance to a place called Bikkuri Lounge!
And once per month it's home to "Lost In Trancelation", Orlando's home of Trance!
Resident DJ Suzy Solar (USA) was in the booth when I arrived around midnight!
Dance floor was just filling up but those on it were going crazy!
And within fifteen more minutes it got like this!
Showing off her wristband collection, Suzy's monthly shows in Orlando usually take place on the last weekend of each month!
"Next DJ ready to take over, but first, let me take a selfie!"
Taking control at 12:30AM, DJ Jordan Suckley (GB).
And he turned it up a notch with a faster-paced Trance set!
And he whipped the crowd into a frenzy!
Dancing in all the corners!
It was so uplifting, I finally had to ask Suzy Solar if this faster, louder type of Trance had it's own genre name. She referenced Armin van Buuren's "Who's Afraid of 138?" label. I never knew!
Club stayed jammed!
Spotted doing purple: Harley Hawtsauce & Sage Sappho
Spotted on the deck: Opening DJ Robb Blak
Song selections were a mix of vocal and non-vocal, all at fast bpm's!
That look of Trance!
Jordan Suckley's U.S. tour takes him to El Paso & Dallas next weekend followed by Scottsdale and Los Angeles!
DJ Adam Ellis (GB) plays here at Bikkuri for "Lost In Trancelation" on Friday, April 29th! Don't miss it!  Details here.
A good time was had by all!
