The ability of Cedric Gervais to adapt to the size and feel of a club and it’s crowd came full circle Saturday night as he tore apart his third different Glow venue of 2010.

The Miami maestro opened with a countdown to thumping electro a la Wolfgang Gartner and moved right into Axwell and Dirty South’s remix of ‘Sweet Disposition.’ If anything, it set the tone for what would ultimately be (for lack of better words) a rather intense evening. When spinning at Lima and Vetro, Ced stuck to the more techy stuff. He was housey and underground. Not at Fur Nightclub. At Fur the man was massive. Every track he spun was huge; big bass, driving beats, snappy hits, melting interludes; it was epic house insanity. In fact, he went as far as moving towards the progressive trance side of things at many points. And for a split second, it was reminiscent of Armin circa 2005/2006.

Ced was everywhere in a good way. From epic, to heavy and driving, to upbeat and fun and finally to twisted progressive, Ced was a monster. Very few DJs can take a crowd on a journey from light to dark, hard to soft, upbeat to looming and back again. He spun everything from Morillo to Afrojack to his own hit ‘Ready or Not.’ By the end of the night one thing was clear, Ced came to DC ready to throw down. He could teach South Beach’s newest arrival a thing or two about what it means to dunk.

Ced taught DC a thing or two about how to slam on Saturday. Slam music, slam a shot, slam whatever it is you want to take down, baby.

And major props to our opening act, Glow iPad/DJ contest and regular in DC Clubbing, DJ Saam. He dropped hot beats, built the crowd’s excitement with his own wild antics, and in the end, spun a thorough set himself.
