This past Thursday, 3/10/11, Antoine Clamaran graced the decks of Lima Lounge in Washington DC with his uplifting, almost forgotten sound of great French house music. Like always, DC nightlife packed Lima to the brim. The drinks flowed and the place thumped with the ever-present sound of the kick drum. With the recent renovations to the DJ booth, the sound in the club has improved 100 percent; it has allowed for a more full sound. The low-lows and the high-highs are much easier on the ears. Clamaran utilized these new additions and relied on them heavily for not only a great sounding set, but a very danceable set as well.

Jon Deke opened the night with a progressive bang. Starting DC nightlife off slowly and ultimately climaxing with a heavy house sound, Deke gave the fans a feeling of wanted more. Clamaran fed this yearning when he took the decks just after midnight.

CClamaran’s set consisted of both classic modern house songs. While his set was diverse in the fact that it played a wide range of house genres, every song played used ‘the French sound’ as its backbone. Clamaran played Tweet It by Tim Berg, Norman Doray & Sebastien Drums, Let It Go by Dirty South, a Respect mash-up (Aretha Franklin), Call On Me by Eric Prydz, One by Swedish House Mafia and a remix of Silence by Delerium. Everything he played flowed seamlessly and smoothly.

Antoine Clamaran has been in the game for a long time. Dating back to the early ’90s, Clamaran was at the fore-front of house music. His sound revolutionized the genre into what we know it to be today. He may not be the most trendy or young house prodigy, but Clamaran knows what good house music sounds like and knows how to play it correctly. DC nightlife was pleasantly surprise and definitely had another great time at Lima Lounge.
