Over the weekend my friends and I saw Sam Feldt
, a tropical house DJ I’ve been listening to for years. Rather than performing at a typical music venue he played his set at PRYSM
, a nightclub in River North known for periodically hosting musical talents.
Although it is smaller than most venues in the city, this makes for an intimate and immersive set. We ended up arriving later than we planned, but were still able to shoulder our way right next to the stage. Sam Feldt pulled out all the stops for his show, including white fog, a stunning light show, and tons of confetti. His version of EDM incorporates tropical beats reminiscent of summertime, island vibes, and warm weather. Since Chicago is still stuck in a seemingly neverending winter, spending the evening dancing to tropical music was just what my friends and I needed to get through these final weeks of classes and exams before spring break.
