Motor City Drum Ensemble

Preparing for nightfall, Motor City Drum Ensemble took the helm at NYC Downlow in a surprisingly dark style. Rolling out some smooth house tracks at the beginning, he then settled into the techno groove as the tent got excited for Grand Central (MCDE Bassline Dub) – a rework of DJ Sprinkles’s track, which brought an immense highlight to his set. The special appearance of the trannies on stage was a visual treat – dressed in underwear and 5” high heels, they danced gracefully to the music. MCDE’s set might not be as house-y as his normal DJ sets were, nor was it disco-y like his recent K7!-released DJ Kicks compilation; but the deep, enthralling sound was surely a pleasant surprise.
