Concert Report: British Invasion (Ace Cafe)

Back to the venue where we’ve seen so many great events…..Ace Cafe Orlando. Time for another one!
In the main room, a British Invasion brought to us by Orlando’s Vizion 1 and Miami’s Culture Production. You know ahead of time that if these two are working on an event, it’s gonna be amazing!
Opening at 8PM last night, we arrived to find these two on stage.
DJ Circle K (USA)
And MC Collaborator (USA).
You can’t have a proper DnB show without an MC explaining it to you!
As is typical for an opening set, just a handful on the dance floor at this early hour.
But those there weren’t shy for this fast-paced genre!
There were some amazing graphics on the big screen behind the DJ’s all night.
Up next, DJ Monk (USA).
Opening his set with what we decided was best described as Progressive Breaks.
A bit of a slower pace to begin with…..
Before he cranked it up with a more traditional Breaks set!
Even though it was still early…..
There was already a crowd on the dance floor!
10PM arrived way too soon and it was time for our British boys!
Freestylers (GB)
Always great to have this guy playing Orlando!
Freestylers’ set included a lot of Classic Dance hits which if you remember back then, were Breaks!
Fun down on the tarmac!
Beginning to fill-in!
We ran into a lot of peeps from the local scene as well as many we met for the first time!
11PM and time for a shift change!
For DJ Kraftykuts (GB).
More Breakbeats!
We had last seen Kraftykuts last March at the Galaxy Music Gathering in Miami during Miami Music Week.
Another great KK set!
All levels of the club were now jammed!
And he had the crowd bouncing!

The look you get from great Drum & Bass!
His set had a lot of vocals and then I realized it was the MC delivering them!

Really impressive!

They say you can never go wrong with Go Go girls.
They were right!

Another amazing show at Ace Cafe and a good time was had by all.
