Each month features five different beatsmiths selected through demo tapes submitted to Karma spinning hourlong sets of breaks, drum 'n' bass, house, trance, and tribal. French thinks the night could be a springboard both for artists and the community. "People with a love for music get a chance to talk to other DJs and just hang out," French says. "You get drum 'n' bass guys talking to the house guys, house guys talking to breaks guys... it's really cool."
That it is, and the idea for Wet Dream spawned from Karma's in-house Sunday Vibe sessions, which open up the store's turntables to budding young wax-scratchers. This Friday's Wet Dream is the second in the series and, from the sounds of it, won't be the last. "At the last party, everyone stayed until closing time," French notes. Isn't that the measure of any great house party?
This month's Wet Dream takes place from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Friday, July 28, at Lush Lounge, 3074 NE 33rd Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Admission is free. Call 954-564-4898.
