The Ruckus was a one night only event featuring two of Philly’s finest DJ duos, Mr. Falcon and WhiteRice. Mr. Falcon is Blueshift and Ily, and WhiteRice is P@KEO and Bruce Pettacio. All of these guys are amazing DJ’s, and the night was a truly religious experience.
The event was held at The Barbary. It was not a huge crowd, but that just made the experience more intimate. The music choices were really unbelievable. I’ve been internally gushing about the music all day. Bruce started and ended the night right. Though he played a variety of different sounding tracks, I was especially digging the more chill and downtempo house. P@KEO played some RIDICULOUS hard hitting house that got the whole dance floor moving. I’m still sore from how hard I danced to his sets. Ily has been one of my favorite house and techno DJ’s for awhile. His tracks are always on point, and he approaches his sets almost scientifically with his music choices. I looove when Blueshift throws in that real sexy dubstep into his sets. When he does that it reminds me that good dubstep is out there.
10/10 perfect night and I love seeing local DJ’s come together and throw amazing parties. It was a great kick off to this very special weekend. It’s that time again for the WKDU Electronic Music Marathon, the most wonderful time of the year! Yours truly (that’s me) will be live broadcasting from Rumor on Sunday. This year proceeds will be going to Philly AIDS Thrift, who do so much good work for HIV/AIDS education and outreach. You can check out the full schedule HERE to see all my favorite peoples set times. Happy listening!
