Alter. New Years Eve 2019

An evening that delivered more than anyone of us could’ve imagined; a truly memorable event for Alter. and every one of our party goers. Spanning three club spaces, this NYE was something to marvel - the epitome of hedonism! 

 

Starting with Amber Akills’s And Siesta's throw down on the EDITION's rooftop terrace, their soundtrack consisted of the best of alternative dance music and beyond - a delight for our dancers under the stars. We then moved down into the aptly named electric circus, never has an Alter. venue quite lived up to its name like this one! Delivering a powerful groove from the opening beat to the very last track. The whole room had a vibrancy rarely found in modern dance floors - a true throwback to the 1970s. The DJs flown in from around the globe delivered something special as VITZ and DONN perfectly set up the dance floor destruction by Marco Gallerani. Finally, a masterful vocal performance by Cintia Lund was coupled with sets from TYS and a surprise VITZ b2b Alter. Soundsystem; one heavyweight musical production one after the other. An Alter. favourite venue, the Clubroom, demonstrated once again why it it cultivates some of the best party atmospheres seen in the Shanghai underground scene. As ever, the party was attended by a beautiful & utterly fabulous crowd who delivered an unparalleled vibe - one of our favourite crowds and atmospheres to date!

The track of the evening...

 

Deep into the early hours of this night of debauchery and madness, it seemed Vitz was the calmest man in the Edition hotel. Cutting between big Detroit house cuts and heavy hitting disco edits, he skilfully slipped in a deep house classic to unify the clubroom into one groove. This classic remix of Larry Heard’s ‘Déjà vu’ could be heard resonating around the Edition’s hallways as he provided Alter’s New Year’s Eve party goers a rare moment of serenity in what was a crazy evening.
