Pezzner Brings His Smart EDM to SA

Pezzner to headline the first E:MERGE show, hopefully in one piece

”A good set is more like jazz, it’s improvisation,” said Novy. “You do have touring artists out there playing carefully constructed sets, but [with] real DJs to me—guys like Pezzner—it’s about the DJ being able to pick the right track at the right time.”

For the globetrotting Pezzner, who recorded his new album in Malta and considers intercontinental travel as routine, he’s also built the experience to know what sound to bring to which city.

“There’s totally a geographical aspect to DJing,” Pezzner said. “In, say, Tokyo, they seem [to be] more into an abstract, pushing-the-envelope sort of sound. In London, I heard a lot of deep bass and soul, [while] in Texas people really respond to deep, funky, jacking house music. I may find myself starting with that in my set.”

Supporting Pezzner behind the boards will be Novy himself, along with’s Keeque. Local artist Lolo will also be adding a multimedia flair to E:MERGE, decking out Southtown 101 with original installations for the event.

“It’s not what we’d expect in gallery viewing … it’s more of a street art feel,” said Novy. “The idea for us was to take Southtown 101 and give it a different look, a different vibe for the night.”

The S.O.U.L. crew has also managed to keep the party going well past last call, making it currently SA’s only (official) after-hours party.

“We just want people to enjoy themselves,” said Novy, “to come out and experience something new.”
