Nom De Strip was easily the most versatile DJ up on the decks this Friday. He dropped a set filled with hard-hitting techno and snaring electro-house that should have had any crowd going insane. Listening to his mixing felt like stepping in the cyber-punk rave-scenes of “The Matrix,” that acid-heavy techno sound of the 90s that set the foundation for my ideas of what a “rave” was.

Last New Year’s Day was the first time I heard Chris Lake play. Nine months ago, he wasn’t heading his own tour across the country, he was opening for deadmau5 with Miami-duo GTA. That night was the first time I’d set foot into a bottle club; the crowd was significantly older, most in their early-thirties at least. Attendees in the bathroom offered me paper towels and opened the doors for me. Water was ten dollars a bottle, and the thought of buying more than a beer seemed extravagant. Everyone in the room was dressed to impress thanks to the mandatory dress code: men in button downs and women with heels.

 

All the acts, Chris Lake included, played impressive sets to a room so packed that the only floor space was to the side of the DJ booth on the stairs. But what sticks out best in my mind was how the crowd felt absolutely dead. The audience felt like a pack of zombies with their phones sutured to the palms of their hands. No one danced, and the only question I could ask myself is “Why are these people here?” The show at Bajas Beach Club this Friday felt like a case of deja vu, because as I watched the crowd I couldn’t help but ask myself that same question.

 

“It was a good set—I know when it’s sh*t and when it’s not, tonight was a good night,” Nom De Strip, the joker Scottish tech-house DJ, said as he worked his way into a beer. The same could be said for all three performances. From the combination of Nom’s foot-stomping techno/tech-house, TJR’s bouncing big room and Chris Lake’s grinding electro, it should be said that these three played a great night.

 

They played creatively, and more important, intelligently. And the newly renovated Baja’s, which now house more than an ample amount of dance space and enough bass in the speakers to rattle your brain, has become one of the nicest looking venues in Tallahassee; small, more intimate than Coliseum, and a bit more up-scale—at least for a college town. But my issue last night wasn’t with the artists, or with the venue, but rather with the audience.

 

“I don’t really care,” Nom says laughing when asked him about the lack of love for techno in the mainstream. “Sometimes you wonder if you should play to the crowd if you play for yourself. When you’re an opener, it’s more like I can play that rolling music, and the other acts can play that big stuff.”

 

Nom De Strip was easily the most versatile DJ up on the decks this Friday. He dropped a set filled with hard-hitting techno and snaring electro-house that should have had any crowd going insane. Listening to his mixing felt like stepping in the cyber-punk rave-scenes of “The Matrix,” that acid-heavy techno sound of the 90s that set the foundation for my ideas of what a “rave” was.

 

No matter how much harder Nom’s music selection became, he couldn’t wake up the audience. This didn’t seem to bother Nom much though, as I’m sure not too much does. The guy is hysterical, with a juvenile sense of humor and bizarrely well-defined calf muscles.

 

“I can just warm up the crowd,” Nom said. “I can get them ready for the next guys. It’s like, you can’t eat your dessert if you don’t eat your veggies first,” he explains. And at first, I find him reassuring. As an opener, maybe his position isn’t to get the crowd fully in gear. His set kicked off early and everyone may have been biding their energy for the night ahead. As I left to interview Chris Lake, TJR had already taken the stage and seemed to be bringing the crowd out of their shell a bit.

 

He gave a couple of shout outs to the crowd, asked if we were ready for the big game on Saturday and started getting the people in gear. His set was some of the most impressive technical DJing I’ve seen in a long time, especially since he’s one of two people that I’ve ever seen who actually still scratches his records—something that virtually no mainstream DJs still do, save for A-Trak, at least to my knowledge.

 

“We come from the same world. DJing in the 90s was all about DJing,” Lake said. “Everything was fresh. You’re watching videos to see what guys have invented with the cross -fader. It was all about manipulating music. It was about showmanship and entertainment. Nowadays, everything with computers, it’s all perfectly mixed.”

 

Back in the 90s, being a DJ was just as much more of a technical skill to find music that no one had heard yet. Now, it seems that the competitive spirit DJing was rooted in has become sacrificed for playing the most recognizable festival bangers on pre-recorded mixes. Even as he played a big-room remix of Pink Floyd’s “Education,” the unfamiliar had no favor with the audience. As an artist, he believes that new, rising DJs should learn to mix on their feet rather than come on stage with a preplanned set, even if it is a bit riskier to play without a safety net.

 

“I think if you’re coming up it should be a little bit more impromptu,” Lake said. “I know some records that go well together, but it’s almost like piecing together a road map. You kind of figure things out. You learn to read a crowd. It’s okay to make mistakes.”

 

Chris Lake moved away from playing so many familiar hits, more interested in playing tracks catered more towards his own sound. Lake has no interest in mimicking the sounds of other artists.

 

“It’s important to have a sound that separates you,” Lake said. “If you’re copying everyone else, you’re doing nothing to stand out. I’ve always just done funky; combine funky with drive, big beats and music. A song. I’ve always been well known for my songs. I like it, I like making all sorts of music. Just go for it.”

 

But even though Tallahassee closed down Bajas this Friday, it seemed to be not what they wanted. Nom De Strip’s unique sound, TJR’s technical prowess and Chris Lake’s drive towards originality aren’t what won over the crowd, it was their move towards playing the same Top 40 tracks that everyone wants to hear. After the show on Friday, I can’t help but wonder if Tallahassee really loves dance music, or just loves partying enough to follow whatever music is currently on the radio.
