The Deep End
If you remember the 1993 Robin Williams movie of the same name, you know what to expect from Jumanji, a seven-hour, beat-laden bacchanal that borrows the flick's fantastical, tribal elements. The multilevel Club Xit provides the perfect setting for this genre-spanning, Florida-focused event, which features four separate spaces of electronic dance indulgence. The two downstairs rooms include the Tribal Heart Electro area, with a lineup featuring robo-breaks collective ATF, Miami's Devine and Emily Play, as well as the down 'n' dirty tweaks of BassBotz. Complementing the pop-and-lock activities is the adjacent Primal Soul drum 'n' bass area, with feverish rhythms courtesy of WMC darlings Evol Intent, Rockwell, and MC Duchess. For a change of tempo, wander upstairs, where house, trance, and deep electro breaks await and live video performances provide further stimulation in each room. With countless promoters and artists involved, Jumanji should lure partygoers by tying the primitive urges of dancing with the escapist elements the scene embodies. Fantasy accouterments aside, Jumanji is a raver-approved all-nighter filled with the Sunshine State's best and brightest, a full-on stampede of sound.
Unseen Society, Euphoria Project, and many others present Jumanji, 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. Friday, April 29, at Club Xit, 219 N. 21st Ave., Hollywood. It features several live acts, video performances, and more than 20 DJs. Admission costs $10 for the first 50 people through the door (two mix CDs included), $15 thereafter. Call 954-925-5801.
