Thursday Night at Provocateur with DJ Silver

If ever there was a question what “Ibiza music” sounds like, DJ Silver served up that very answer at NYC hotspot, Provocateur, on a recent frigid Thursday night.  Sub-zero temperatures had kept people indoors for the most of the week, and Provocateur was precisely the place to get warm and release that inner stir crazy. Cold weather plays a role in crowd curation, creating an even more selective sect than that which already populates Provocateur. DJ Silver could not have been a more ideal soundtrack for the night, with his sweet, evolving beats. 

Silver played a transformative mix of tunes, taking revelers on a journey through myriad genres. At the onset, he opened with deep house grooves, dropping in sweet Maceo Plex - always a poignant crowd pleaser. Deep made way for darkness, with a trip down tribal beats that included haunting vocals. About halfway into his set, the waify model types that constantly pepper Provocateur were swinging from the stripper poles. A clear sign of set success. 

Throughout the night, Silver teased with unexpected vocal layers of throwback favorites - tracks such as Daft Punk’s “Technologic”, Underworld’s “Born Slippy”, and even Bob Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff”  found their way into Silver’s immaculate set. He kept things housey for the most part, sampling diva house and even some sweet Latin flavor to maintain that masterful high energy. And what set would be complete without dropping a disco track (or two)?

You never know who you’ll run into behind the doors of Provocateur and Thursday night’s crowd did not disappoint. NYC record label 
Sea to Sun (http://seatosun.com/) was holding dance-floor court, which included vocalist Sylvia Tosun, and later on house music legend, David Morales(http://www.djdavidmorales.com/), was spotted getting down with his bad self. 

It’s unquestionable that DJ Silver has earned his rightful spot behind the decks at Provocateur. Not only was he able to maintain a constant level of energy and enthusiasm throughout the night, his creative approach towards genre diversity and song selection shone through, creating an intoxicating taste of Ibiza in the heart of NYC winter. Beanies off to DJ Silver! Thanks for keeping us warm from intro to outro.
