As the music filled the room with that ever so sweet filth, I found myself handing off my camera to Caleb and joining the mosh pit in a shoulder to shoulder expression of love for the pure head banging bass drops that Nero caressed my soul with.
When I think of music, the first thing that comes to my mind is an emotional breakdown. Electronic music is formatted from the psychological premises of human nature. It starts by breaking your emotions down with a smooth tempo leveling you off, and then starting to build you up as the tempo increases and the lights start to move faster and faster untill you are about to climax and there is that moment of pure ecstasy. Just as you feel you cant take anymore, you implode from within as the DJ drops the heaviest bass line and the entire room loses their mind. This is the closest you will ever come to a utopia state of mind while you are awake. This goes on all night, song after song, your mind and body sync and you have no choice but to move your head to sounds of creativity and divine intervention.
It has been a long time since I wanted to stay till the end of an event and Nero destroyed the Music Box from the ceiling to the floor all night. The sound and light were on point all night and the crowd showed their appreciation from the opening song untill the curtain dropped. The climax of my night was the end when Nero mixed System Of The Down and the fans lost their mind and erupted in a massive mosh pit.
I love what I do for a living and when I can cover a DJ that I love it makes everything perfect in life for his two hour set.
