The cold couldn’t stop Philly from coming out in force for Tchami Thursday night. The sold out crowd made its way to downtown Chinatown in Philadelphia at the historic Trocadero Theatre. The Troc has become the home to a wide array of concerts over the past few years ranging from massive acts like Kendrick Lamar, Madeon and James Bay to the more low key shows in their exclusive balcony. No matter what, the Troc has a little bit of something for all music lovers. Thursday night was no different, as the dedicated deep house fans anxiously endured the long lines outside in the cold while waiting for the festivities to begin.
Mercer got things kicked off around 9. Although labeled as an opener, Mercer certainly isn’t new to the game. With a large catalog of original tracks and remixes, the producer has been making waves along with his French-mates for quite some time now. The French producer mixed through his ensemble of tunes ranging from his wild bass banger with DJ Snake “Lunatic” to his more melodic tunes like his recent single, “Bastille“. The futuristic bass drops rattled off one after the next as Mercer made sure to get the crowd hyped up for Tchami.
Finally, 11 o’clock came and the lights dimmed out. After taking some time for the stage to be transformed into a cathedral, Tchami took to the stage with an enormous approval. The Parasian deep house mastermind wasted no time, immediately getting the crowd bouncing along to his fresh drops. Weaving in and out of his most popular tracks like “Missing You” and “After Life” had the crowd singing their hearts out while vibing along. Tchami certainly knows how to work a crowd and Thursday night was no different. Another incredible night of music at the Troc will be one to talk about for awhile.
