Sydney Blu @ The Hoxton, Toronto – April 7.2012
As a performer, Ottawa-born/Miami-based Sydney Blu is truly hellacious: she projects so much positive energy, and vibes off the audience brilliantly. From the minute she took the stage at The Hoxton, her musical charisma enraptured the crowd. (Among them was fellow Canadian Deadmau5, who turned up to show his support.) It was an accomplished performance that kept the room in a frenzy from the first beat to the final track. This was my first chance to see Sydney Blu in person, and I can attest confidently now to her gifts, both as a producer and a performer. If you haven’t been lucky enough to catch her live on the decks, I’d recommend that you bookmark her tour dates page and make a point of turning out the next time she’s in your geographic vicinity. It’s an experience I promise you won’t forget.
