DJs to spin eclectic mix on 2 floorsFor tomorrow’s big DJ party, Club Garden in southern Seoul has organized a buy-one-get-one-free event called “Break the House.”
With the club’s two sound systems working in different dance zones ― the main hall on the first floor and the lounge on the second floor ― two genres of electronic music will be spun by both international and Korean DJs, including Soulja, Ultradog, Jon Lockley, Brian Kelly, Minogue, Beejay, Audio Tsunami, Loco and Cdeuce. All have performed live in major cities around Korea and are known as some of the best DJs based in Korea.
“At any given time at Garden, house music will be upstairs, break beat downstairs or vice versa. The music format will constantly change, flipping back and forth all night,” according to the club’s new manager/promoter. Such a musical approach is new to Korea, and the club’s dual system makes it possible. Club Garden, a relatively new club in Seoul, is building its own identity for electronic music fans. The club not only plays eclectic house but occasional drum & bass, while Club M2 in the Hongdae area offers mostly progressive music.
Tonight, Club Garden wishes to embrace hiphop dancers as well. “Hiphop is enormous in Korea, and break beat is similar to hiphop because there is a funky jump-up sound to it. People who listen to hiphop can easily relate to it,” the promoter said.
