Dirty South, Gregori Klosman, and Mord Fustang Rock New York City at Roseland Ballroom

Dirty South has embarked on a tour in North America stopping by 30+ cities. This Fall tour has been titled ‘The City of Dreams Tour’. Dirty South is one of the most established names in EDM and has a dedicated fan base that always packs the house wherever he goes.

This past Saturday, Dirty South, Gregori Klosman, Tyler Sherrit, and Mord Fustang, took New York City by storm with a seven hours of some of the latest EDM.

I arrived at Roseland Ballroom around 10:30 as Gregori Klosman was already a half hour into his set. He was already warming up the energetic crowd with his big room house tracks.

As soon as I got to Roseland, I dove straight into the photo pit to get some great shots of Klosman from the crowd.

Without wasting anytime, I hopped right on stage and got closer to the action.

Gregori Klosman always had a warming smile on his face as he led the crowd into a night filled with great music.

As Gregori Klosman began wrapping up his short but sweet set, electro dub producer, Mord Fustang came onto the stage. The crowd roared awaiting the young American as he appeared next to Klosman.

Although Mord Fustang is known for making some of the grungiest electro oriented tracks, behind the decks he is cool and composed as he vibes with his hair drooping down towards his chin.

Mord Fustang definitely has that alternative and punky style, he jumped right into his set with great concentration.

After getting some pics of Mord Fustang on stage, I quickly moved over to the side stage VIP area to get some vantage shots.

Mord Fustang played a grungy set filled with originals such as ‘Champloo’ and switched up the vibe for a solid hour and a half. It was interesting to see the crowd dance and move differently to Mord Fustang’s set versus Klosman’s.

The lights were absolutely amazing; colors blended as Mord Fustang blended beats.

As Mord Fustang’s set started to wind down, the crowd was going hard. The crowd was fully warmed up and was ready to see the headliner, Dirty South, take the stage and set the dance floor on fire. Dirty South stepped into the booth as a huge CO2 drop cooled off the party people for Dirty South’s set. At that time, I was in the VIP bottle service area getting some alternate angles.

Dirty South started pumping up the crowd and I ran back into the photo pit to get some front line action.

Left to Right: “In awe”, “In awe of the picture she just took”, “Ecstatic”.

As he started working into his set, Dirty South wasted no time and began dropping the heavy house.

The girls started being thrown up unto shoulders in true EDM fashion.

As the light gleamed upon Dirty South the energy started to build rapidly.

At this point, the lights started getting sick, so I stepped back on stage.

Although DJs are essentially gods, they also need to stay hydrated.

LAZERZ.

Roseland was absolutely packed and was rocking with awesome vibes!

So this is what it feels like to be Dirty South.

The lighting and stage visuals were absolutely stunning. I have been to many shows at Roseland, but Dirty South really went all out for this one night stand in NYC.

The lights and lasers were all so crisp and clear, the synchronization with the music was on point as well.

After leaving the booth, I scurried back up to the VIP balcony to get some better angles of Dirty South’ stage setup.

Yeup, it was epic.

The best lights and effects were definitely saved for Dirty South. As the lights became more jaw dropping with every minute, the dance floor started to really get crazy.

Awesome symmetry, sounds geeky I know.

While I was on the VIP balcony, a massive confetti drop went off.

Even though Dirty South has probably seen over hundreds of confetti drops while spinning, he still couldn’t resist capturing the epic confetti drop at Roseland Ballroom towards the end of his set.

Confetti taking over.

The reflection of the lasers off of the confetti was amazing.

The confetti slowly consumed the dance hall as Dirty South drowned Roseland with heavy beats.

Fuck yeah.

events    Dirty South, Gregori Klosman, and Mord Fustang Rock New York City at Roseland Ballroom

Amazing.

All in all, Dirty South, Gregori Klosman, and Mord Fustang, put on a spectacular show this past weekend at Roseland Ballroom in NYC. The dance hall filled up with some amazing party vibes as people danced freely with no worries. For a one night event at Roseland Ballroom, I was thoroughly impressed by the overall production aspect of the show. Although the music is most important, the supplemental lights, confetti, CO2, and lasers turned this party into a straight banger.

Big ups to Livenation, Roseland, and Dirty South for making this happen; but above all, the biggest ups go to the fans who came out this past Saturday, to party the night away.
