Electric Aquaruim: Swimming in Music at the SiriusXM Fishbowl Studio

This past Wednesday satellite radio’s best, SiriusXM, invited the boys from The Generation Wild Tour to visit them in their fishbowl studio in Midtown Manhattan, and the result was a little wild. Deniz Koyu, Danny Avila, dBerrie and Mikael Weermets played tunes back to back to back while photographer Kirill bounces around taking photos and surely bemoaning his inability to champagne facial anyone; after all it is a sort-of recording studio.

Koyu, star of the tour made spinning records look effortless as he soaked up the adulation of the surprisingly large, and incredibly good looking crowd in the Sirius HQ. Avila, seemingly always eager to show off his skills really took the CDJ’s to task and dropped his own mashup of “Hells Bells” “Turbulence” and “Going Hard”. Danny is also a bit of a ham, making faces and interacting with the small audience clearly enjoying the moment. New York boy dBerrie made sure he wouldn’t be forgotten really pumping the bass in the small enclosed space and dropping the Tommy Trash vs. The Aston Shuffle track, “Sunrise (Won’t Get Lost)”.

The biggest revelation of the night was the prowess and stage presence of Mikael Weermets. Weermets played the people as well as some great tunes drinking in the crowds energy and spitting it back out with hand claps, and screams. No slouch on the turntables either Weermets at one point played string of hot tracks consisting of, in order, “Praise You”, “Lunar”, “Antidote”, “Flashback” (by Scott Sparks & Jewelz) into “Here We Go”. Amazing stuff.
