In early November, seemingly unaware that it was no longer summer, hundreds of well-dressed twenty-somethings packed the mahogany dance floors of Revel Casino’s HQ Nightclub just to catch a glimpse of Porter Robinson. A staple of East Coast night life throughout the summer, HQ and it’s host hotel Revel have not missed a beat since the change of the seasons, riding a wave of buzz following Tiësto’s Beach Club set on its closing weekend. Now well into the fall, its nightlife remains un-phased. Porter Robinson’s debut at the seaside club drew a sold out crowd from Philadelphia and New York City, all eager to see the electro house DJ outside the confines of warehouses and festivals.
On Halloween weekend all manner of ghouls and ghosts invaded HQ Nightclub at Revel Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey. As part of the megaclub’s lengthy Halloween celebrations, British-born, LA-based producer Zen Freeman led the weekend’s festivities with a breakneck electro set that acted as the soundtrack to a creepy and sexy costume contest. From zombie nurses to nearly naked adaptations of Poison Ivy and Alice in Wonderland, the crowd packed out HQ’s impressive dance floor to see the charismatic Brit spin. A set that consisted of a nearly endless barrage of big room club fuel, Zen added his own stylish flair to the debacle, living up to his title as a DJ by piecing together a set that, although familiar in track selection, kept the energy high and the crowd on their toes with a showcase of bootlegs, mash-ups, and unique cuts.
Hop past the break to see shots from the contest and download of one of Zen’s flawless mash-ups.
