The Buraka Som Sistema show at Sonotheque last night raised a lot of questions, but they were the good kind of questions. “Are they seriously covering Benny Benassi?” “Is that dreadlocked hippie girl seriously rubbing her ass directly in the MC’s face?” “If they’re not somehow monitoring my brain, then how did they put together a live show straight out of my dreams?” That sort of thing.

The club was maybe only two-thirds full, but I’d say 90 percent of the crowd was up front wilin’ the fuck out, which is a good indication that next time BSS hits Chicago there will be significantly less elbow room. You would be well advised to be there.
