#NoNeon w/ Hunter Siegel, Ghastly & Dr. Fresch (Review)

Last night Hunter Siegel, and his final #NoNeon party of the year, shook the Hoxton to it's core and nearly brought it to its knees. I've never seen the Hoxton so busy so early, there was a massive line from as early as 11 and by the time I got in at 11:30 the club was already packed back to the door. I'm glad I arrived early because I'm sure the line was never better than the half hour I waited, and to my surprise Hunter took the stage right at midnight. Which apparently he does most of the time (although not at the last #NoNeon).
Regardless what time he went on you had to know, Emperor Palpatine, the Lord of DarkPLUR was going to deliver. Yesterday I speculated that there might be some B2B action, a live performance from Delaney Jane, or some new Hunter Siegel productions. Well, I was about half right, there was no B2B, and neither did Delaney Jane sing live, but she was there side by side with Hunter when he dropped "Still Waiting," as was Autoerotique who joined Hunter onstage when he dropped LYAOF. Best of all Hunter premiered his new collab with Autoerotique, video of which you can watch below.

Apart from the aforementioned Autoerotique and Delaney Jane tracks, Hunter blessed us with a number of tracks including his "Time To Blackout," that Skrillex and Jauz collab "Squad Out," which he mixed nice into Nero's "Two Minds," his remix of Zeds Dead and Dirtyphonics "Where Are You Now," Gesaffelstein's "Control Movement," AC Slater's remix of David Heartbreak "Rebel," Wax Motif's "Krush Groove," and by accident (instead of his new track with Autoerotique) Tchami's "After Life."

Having never seen either Ghastly or Dr. Fresch live, I came in with very little expectations based off my admittedly little previous knowledge of the two. Both came out strong and put on amazing sets with equal parts bass heavy tracks, emphatic energy and tremendous DJing skills. The sets blared along with deep banger after banger. Ghastly played his track with Brillz "Hawt," his "Get On This," his remix of Snails and HeRobust "Pump This," his track "Bitch U Ghastly," Killagraham's DnB remix of Torro Torro "Go Deep," and Beastie Boys' "Intergalactic." Dr. Fresch teased us with his collab with Jackal "Netflix and Kill," (which you can watch below), the Atom Pushers remix of Breach's "Jack," and What So Not's "Jaguar."
All in all the final #NoNeon of 2015 was a great success, shattering my expectations, from every angle. I'll be anxiously awaiting the next installment. Not to mention all the awesome new music that was premiered. #NoNeon is no secret anymore, so you'll have to both order your tickets and arrive early. Hunter Siegel and his gang definitely know how to throw an epic party, so much so that Hunter himself smiled on multiple occasions.
