DJ Boris at Monarchy's One-Year Anniversary

In a world where divas are bionically enhanced, the bloom of marquees and floodlights can be seen from space, and the energy crisis has been averted by harnessing the kinetic motion of dance floors, power house is the genre of choice. And those who choose choose power house DJ Boris, who has established himself in the new millennium as the sound's premier emissary through residencies at New York's Crobar and Pacha. Now he also proudly delivers monthly sets at Club Space in Miami but comes up to West Palm Beach this weekend to celebrate Monarchy's first birthday. Unrelenting drums, a deluge of massive riffs, and an unswerving wail for U4EA aid Boris in aiming for the rafters and back rows. The result is a club that condenses into a sauna swept by southern oscillations, the bass bins pushing so much air that speaker tweakers must keep pumping their fists in the air for balance.
