After the smoke cleared and the crowd regained consciousness, the Dutch DJ, departed from his Dirty Dutch roots and played the Bell Biv Davoe classic, “That Girl is Poison.” The night continued in a similar fashion as we were treated to a slew of tribal house drums spiked with pop classics from the likes of Justin Timberlake and even Missy Elliot. We had expected to hear some of his greats (like the electrifying original “Fill U Up,” for example) but were pleasantly surprise with some unique mash ups, including Autoerotique’s “Turn Up the Volume” mixed with bits of Daft Punk’s “Harder Better Faster Stronger.” Although it wasn’t straight Sidney classics, the set did not disappoint the Dutch house fans in the crowd.

Don’t forget that if you missed Sidney at LAVO, you’re not completely out of luck. He’ll be performing at Electric Zoo this Labor Day weekend, so be sure to grab your tickets and transportation passes soon, as you won’t want to make the same mistake twice. And, as always: another LAVO Thursday, another Advil and caffeine-fueled Friday.
