Jeff Samuel @ Flammable Last Night

posted by on September 22 at 14:26 PM

Jeff Samuel @ Flammable at Rebar, Seattle, WA 9/21/2008

Last night Jeff Samuel played Flammable, Rebar’s Sunday night house music institution. As with many DJs playing there for the first time he admitted to a bit of nervousness, since not just anyone gets to play that night. In this case, the booking was four years in the making. Despite the long wait, the appearance was intentionally kept low-key, so as to not overshadow his Friday spot at Decibel.

Samuel killed it. Flat out killed it. Dead. He’d already told friends that he was going “gay the shit out of that bitch,” and he held true to his word, dropping classic after classic, including Terrence Parker’s “Your Love,” a suprising (and surprisingly non-cheesy) remix of Wildchild’s “Renegade Master,” and closing the night with Inner City’s “Big Fun.” Even when he took the occasional foray into techno the crowd didn’t balk, instead whooping, clapping, and most importantly dancing until he dropped the next record. Even the house DJs in attendance (residents Brian Lyons and Eric Andrews, Karl Kamakahi) had to come up and give props, when not bobbing their heads or dancing in approval.

I’ve been going to Rebar regularly for 7 years now, and that night ranks right up at the top of the list with the best. It’s a shame you probably missed it. Don’t make the mistake of missing him Friday.

two corrections. jeff closed the set with "good life" not "big fun," and played the original of "renegade master," not a remix. the fatboy slim remix is the famous version, the source of that confusion.

Jeff is a complete bad ass, and that's why he always rocks it. See ya at Decibel!

Another correction: Were you refering to Eric Allen (not Andrews) cuz he deserves some recognition in my book :) (as he booked me for this gig a little while back!)

Cheers,
