Club Reports: Celine, Bikkuri Lounge

Celine has been open a little over a year now and during the course of that time it has become the de facto center of electronic dance music in downtown Orlando.
Haze and darkness makes it difficult to get good stage pics in here. DJ duo Yokai (USA) was playing Big Room House music upon my arrival.
The place was completely mobbed!
But when you spot those banana costumes.....
And bananas in the DJ booth.....
And then the flag of Dada Land comes on.....
Then you know it's time for Dada Life (S). We only got one of the DJ duo last night so that was disappointing.
Opening with "One Smile".
"Born To Rage"
And "Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker".
I first discovered Dada Life when they had a hilarious Swedish Top 10 show on XM Satellite Radio.
In Dada Land there are no rules but the rules of Dada.
But it was just too crowded and just too crazy in there so it was time to be moving on.
To Bikkuri Lounge for "Lost In Trancelation".
DJ Robb Blak (USA) in the booth with a great Trance set.
The early crowd on the dance floor.
DJ Suzy Solar (USA) up next and continuing the vibe!
Long line at the door bringing in more and more people.
Not as crowded as I've seen for some nights here but considering it's right after Christmas it exceeded my expectations.
Spotted on the dance floor: Joe and Christina
Spotted taking selfies: DJ Brian Benning (USA)
Spotted on the side: Denise
Spotted rocking that crop top: Sage
Spotted playing door hosts: Shelly and Jonathan
Spotted by the booth: Magdalena
Getting jammed!
And then the guy we were all waiting for: DJ Alex M.O.R.P.H. (D)
Sending out greetings to his fans!
A lot of songs with vocals made me happy!
And he had everyone bouncing!
Based in Bochum near Düsseldorf, I first met Alex M.O.R.P.H. in 2014 at Independence Music Festival in downtown Orlando.
The last Friday of every month is "Lost In Trancelation" featuring some of the world's best Trance DJ's in this intimate venue. We're awaiting announcements for 2019.
A good time was had by all!
