The current dance culture climate these days seems to be dominated by continuous tear-your-face-off bangers; be it the dirtiest, filthiest, rumbling slow tempo dubstep or hard hitting, face scrunching uptempo electro. Sometimes it's nice to take a departure from that and find a happy medium in mid-tempo laid back retro-style dance grooves. Thanks to the work of Souls In Action Entertainment, the Larimer Lounge was turned into a discotheque last night, where each performer came on stage and spun some smooth, crowd pleasing disco-house beats. It was a refreshing night of fluid music - upbeat and always danceable but never stretched to an auditory extreme.

It seems if you see "Souls In Action presents" on the flyer it's like a veritable seal of approval that whatever event they are putting on, it'll be a killer dance party. They seem to know which hot electronic dance music acts to bring in on any given night, and tonight was certainly no exception. My only complaint is many missed out on Boyhollow's quality set. I don't know what it is, but it seems like there is an outright refusal from many people to catch the opening act at the Larimer Lounge, even if the one on the beginning of the bill is a notable and well-regarded local favorite. Otherwise, once the crowd got involved, the party didn't stop until it was forced to.
