Concert Report: DJ Martin Flex (Bikkuri Lounge)

Yes, we're quite aware that the building says "Sushi" on the outside.  But if you come around back, you'll find the secret club Bikkuri Lounge on the inside!
It was the next edition of "Wake and Break" and I arrived just in time to see DJ Andrez (USA) turn the controls over to DJ Martin Flex (GB).
There was no slow buildup.....he went right at it!
Breaks and Bass, all night long!
But apparently only the brave would come forward to dance as so many hung back.
Martin Flex came to Orlando following gigs in Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Denver!
Good crowd but I don't doubt Bikkuri was the smallest venue he played in!
Martin Flex is based in London but he says his next show after Orlando is in Spain!
Bikkuri is home to that amazing color-changing light wall, although last night it remained red.
Spotted with wings: Melanie & Manderz
Spotted operating at high speed on the dance floor: DJ Funkbaby (USA)
Spotted by VIP: Manda, Amy, Michelle, Cheryl & Michael
Spotted on the dance floor: Jim & Michelle
Spotted by the light wall: Shelley & DJ Timebomb (USA)
Spotted on the dance floor: Heather & DJ Rich D (USA)
Spotted near the entry: Brooke and Dawn
Taking over at 1:30AM, DJ Seth Vogt (USA).
Spotted by the booth: Nicole
Spotted on the dance floor: Allyson and Break-A-Dawn
If there is one thing that makes me mad about Bikkuri is that they have just one bartender which leads to a long slow line! Do they realize how much more money they'd make if they hired a second bartender?  Spotted in line: Cheryl & Michael.
Seth Vogt taking us into the wee hours. He didn't hold back!
And a good time was had by all! (Editors Note: Our "Late Night Disney Springs" Saturday night article will post tomorrow/Monday.)

Club Reports: Chillers, Latitudes, Peek Downtown, Bikkuri Lounge

Craving a frozen alcoholic concoction, my Friday night began at Chillers.
DJ Troy (USA) was in the perch playing mostly Hip Hop hits.
I was here for a Purple Orgasm but there are many flavors to choose from!
The venue is long and narrow but there was plenty of dancing going on!
Up on the rooftop of the same building is Latitudes.
DJ Scott (USA) from 101.1 WJRR was in the booth playing a variety of hits.
It was still early and not a lot of people here yet.
But there are great views and great vibes up here!
Now over to club favorite Peek Downtown.
DJ Elon Jenkins of Digital Groove Project (USA) in the booth when I arrived.
Big crowd in the club!
House music all night long!
Recognized quite a few people from Orlando's House scene.
His set was on point!
He had the dance floor moving!
And it was a young crowd too as House music becomes more and  more popular!
Yes, we're quite aware that the building says "Sushi" and "Noodles" on the front, but come around back and you'll find the secret club Bikkuri Lounge!
Last Friday of the month means "Lost In Trancelation" and last night they had DJ Chris Schweizer (RA).
Big crowd on the dance floor for Trance!
Those looks you get from real Trance!
Spotted by the entrance: Door Host Shelly
Spotted by the bar: Shawna Lyn and Jack

Spotted by the booth: DJ's Suzy Solar (USA) & Brian Benning (USA).

Suzy Solar had played earlier but was now supporting the dance floor!
As did Chris Schweizer!
Chris Schweizer is based in Buenos Aires. The Blog did one night in BA a couple years ago. Link.
Different genres of Trance had the dance floor bouncing!
Light show!
More fun tonight at Bikkuri as the club goes Breakbeats for "Wake and Break" ft. DJ Martin Flex (GB).
It was amazingly fun last night and a good time was had by all!
