Tight Crew’s 3D World is happening on Saturday, July 30 at Fete. In advance of the event, Llewelyn caught up with Tight Crew’s DJ Soappy to get the scoop on why this will be a can’t-miss party.
Llewelyn Ross (Motif): I am digging the new spin on Blacklight Ruckus. What installment of BLR will this be?
Tight Crew: This will be the sixth Blacklight Ruckus in nine years. This event was one of the first we ever did back in 2008.
LR: What elements of the party will attendees get to experience with the HD ChromaDepth glasses you’re providing?
TC: All the decoration will be UV reactive, so basically everything in the venue will work with the free ChromaDepth 3D glasses we’re giving out. The glasses create striking 3D images from normal 2D images by pulling forward the color red to the foreground and sorting the remaining colors according to their position in the rainbow. ROY G BIV! (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet).
LR: To create the event’s “Immersive 3D Black-Light Décor,” you obviously used glow-in-the dark paint. Tell me about some of the other cool deco for this party.
TC: Yes, everything we have uses neon UV-reactive paint. We’ve got these sick new hanging art pieces that resemble giant crystals. Those will hang throughout the main stage area. We’ll be bringing back one of our larger DJ booths with LED lights, but this time setting it up in a giant V formation (with the addition of floor-to-ceiling UV-colored drapes to line the back wall). Centered behind the DJ will be a massive spinning wheel with a trippy spiral pattern.
LR: Any other notable art/production elements for 3D World?
TC: We’re bringing out a custom-made Boombox DJ booth with UV colors and programmed LED lights. This thing is pretty sick. It’s got its own WiFi that people can connect to. They just need to download an app, and then they’ll all be able to control the lights. Definitely one of my favorite art pieces we’ve ever produced.
LR: What are you personally most excited for?
TC: One of the most exciting things for me is seeing everyone dressed up and becoming part of the experience. We encourage everyone to dress in UV reactive colors. With everyone wearing 3D glasses, you essentially become part of the decorations. We can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!
LR: Once you’ve conquered the 3D frontier, can you give me a hint about what’s next for Tight Crew? Virtual reali-raving?
TC: Tight Crew has done an annual Halloween event for many years now, but this year I think will be truly special. I don’t want to give too much away, but we’ve already locked in what I think is the biggest international headliner act we’ve ever booked to date! Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 29. We’ll be taking over not one, but three venues: The Met, Hope Artiste Village and Breaktime Bowl (Pawtucket). Three floors of lights, sound and the Tight Crew rave experience <3
