In what has to be the best bit of booking since the Coalition got Skrillex behind the decks, Supercharged tonight announces the level of its rebirth by putting on the artist sitting at No.1 in the charts. Baauer has been ruling the internet for the last fortnight with the viral flood of ‘Harlem Shake’ videos and he takes similar control over The Haunt tonight.
Huge drops, hip hop vocals and bowel-loosening basslines – it’s an incredible set. No one is even going for cigarettes in case they miss something. And the man himself is having just as much fun, going mental behind the decks. Our photographer can’t move in the crowd but sums things up when he announces that it “feels like the start of something new.” The crowd put it more simply when Baauer finishes and they chant “God! God! God!” at him before scrabbling for handshakes and autographs. Supercharged is back with fire in its belly – long live the king of midweek clubbing.
