  Seks 1.26.01

Venue: The Chamber - Atlanta, GA
Presented by: Seks

Unsurprisingly enough, the inaugural Seks event was a success when Cass graced the event. While attendees were still talking about how well it went, the follow-up to the monthly event was no different. Returning to Atlanta after playing Liquid Groove's New Years Eve party, Chris Fortier brought more of the same quality to this new 21+ event that is creating quite a fan base unlike any other The Chamber has witnessed. Many notables representing the local industry were in attendance this night. The pun of the event name came to mind considering the scantily dressed dancers up on the blocks. Can paint even be considered a garment? Well these dancers did, using the light-sensitive paint to serve as their tops for that oh-so-artistic touch. I even credit them for the fact that there was no shortage of dancing among the crowd, except for those whose attention was fixated on the moves of the "painted ones."

Chris Fortier at SeksAnyhow, enough of that; let's get to the event itself. Chamber resident Gene Carbonell opened up with his progressive tunes that everyone has come to respect him for. All the while, the Asylum was open along with the fully stocked Gift [Fetish] Shop. Some things about a Friday night at The Chamber never change! Gene's opening was fitting for the follow-up act, due to the common ground they shared. For starters, Carbonell and Fortier are both affiliated with Fade Records and Balance Promote Group. Affiliation with Balance allows them access to the record pool created for the community of artists that comprise Balance. Therefore, it should not have been a surprise that his style paralleled that of headliner Chris Fortier, perhaps giving a glimpse into what the future holds for the talented Atlanta act in terms of recognition. With the release of "Re-Vision 2" right around the corner at WMC 2001, Gene was sure to include Hyperion's mix of the track, which he and D. Scott Moskos wrote under the moniker DarkDriver, in his set. Big things are expected from the production of the original, as it was signed by Choo Choo Records.

Fortier overtook the decks for good around 0100 hours, completely fulfilling his three-hour commitment, picking up where Gene left off. Several tracks stuck out from the night, mainly Bipath's "Paranoize" which is featured on John Digweed's newest Global Underground production, 019 recorded in Los Angeles. Anyone that was attending their first Seks production undoubtedly became a regular for upcoming events. It sure doesn't make for a difficult decision when they already have quality acts such as Sean Cusick, Mara, Steve Porter, Slacker, and Michael Wilson lined up to perform in the very near future.
