o witness Derrick Carter is to witness a master tinkering with their craft. Derrick Carter headlined the latest edition of the 'Logan Square House Party' and was accompanied by DJ John Simmons and My Boy Elroy. Freedom reigned at this historic venue as crowds of house heads (shirt optional) filled the room ready to dance the night away. The crowd would not and could not stop moving, the music was their impetus.

John Simmons performed a set of smooth beats before passing the torch to Derrick Carter around 12:30. As Carter began, one couldn't help but notice the 3D visual mapping that allowed Carter's bodily form to be the visuals. It was poetic in a way because he didn't have his name in large letters as many headliners do but instead he let his music and style speak for themselves. This kind of charisma only comes after years of cultivation. Carter immersed the crowd into a ocean of sounds that flowed organically through the ears and movements of the crowd. Lines were still forming at the end of the night with ravers hoping to catch a glimpse of the house legend. The event was hosted at the Logan Square Auditorium by Wavelength Productions.
