Tucked in a little corner of Hollywood Blvd. is Create nightclub, Los Angeles’ newest, but most buzzed about nightlife spot. On a warm Saturday night (10/17), the club in demand was packed to capacity for an exciting performance from one of electronic music’s fastest rising DJ/Producers, Borgeous.
Create is the palatial dance club you would see in a movie, the place you want to be on a Saturday night. A fair sized club reminiscent of the Haçienda’s aesthetic, it’s a remarkable LA experience with a little underground flare to it. Around ten o’clock party animals of all kinds all coalesced to the party spot for a night of thumping house courtesy of Borgeous and many, many libations.
By the time John Borger, or Borgeous, got into the DJ’s booth, the room was filled to the brim, people tightly packed in every vantage point that could see Borger spinning. Every track he played got the crowd riled up, screaming and jumping to every drop he jettisoned upon them. His hard hitting originals like “Tsunami” got the room shaking in time with the beat on seismic proportions, or his jubilant new track “Zero Gravity”, which enamored the crowd surrounding him with its buoyant sonics and festival caliber energy.
From the mind melting house in his catalog or an enticing selection of tracks from a slew of artists, ranging from Fetty Wap to Jauz, downtempo bass and hip hop or high tempo bangers, Borgeous dominated his sprawling two plus hours mix from start to finish. The wunderkind has an unparalleled ability to draw a crowd, and in possibly the toughest electronic music market in North America, he amassed an enormous crowd no problem.
For the past few years Borger has been catching a lot of festival-goers’ attention with his sets, finally seeing him for myself I can see why he’s been creating such big ripples in an ever expanding electronic music scene, he keeps alive the massive ambition of house music and whatever venue he plays in, he makes it feel ten times bigger than it actually is.
