Deep Dish recently rocked Costa Rica so hard that even an earthquake couldn’t stop the party. Rogelio Jimenez reports:
On November 19, Club Vertigo finally saw one of its most anticipated House events. It was the last of three dates which marked electronica history in Costa Rica:
- Paul Oakenfold – November 5th
- Tiesto – November 17
- Deep Dish – November 19
With a lot of effort and love, Club Vertigo prepared for this event, with special decorations, new sound equipment, and the new Chill Out room, featuring the local DJs Ali and Guru Sigma. In the Lounge played Sweet Bo and DJ Vega.
A wise choice was selecting Audio Drop, left, for the opening act. The duo, made up of Aaron Wells, on the left, and Patrice Meiner, right, did an excellent job warming up for Deep Dish. They played a set made of mostly deep house and minimal, which created the right atmosphere for the expectations of the clubbers.
At 2:00 am, Deep Dish appeared. The crowd of more than a thousand people pressed closer to see Sharam and Ali, shown in the photo below.
Sharam was playing his first track when the earth starts shaking; it was an earthquake felt in all the country!
The earthquake lasted ten minutes. Some people freaked out, and went out for their safety; Sharam seemed for a while clueless of what to do! The earth was still shaking, but the crowd was staying in the dance floor, shouting, jumping and giving the sign to Sharam that the party goes on, and nothing could stop it. The phrase in the movie Groove “This Shit ain’t over until the last record spins” seems perfect to describe this moment.
Some of the frightened people came back. Sharam continued with an exquisite set of house, who made people shake their bodies. Some people watched the dancers in South America Indian costumes, friends gave each other hugs, and with couples kissing, it was an emotional moment for every one in there. It was happening – Deep Dish live in Costa Rica.
Ali “Dubfire” made his set, lots of the best deep house and people still feeling euphoric. Then they where switching in, back to back, songs like Vertigo, Flash Dance mixed with Money for Nothing and She Sells Sanctuary were some of the themes played in the best House event ever in Costa Rica. Six hours of Deep Dish, and some people want them back soon.
