bpm Reload

Bella DiPietro reviews bpm Reload.

Bpm’s  ‘Reload’ event  was an unforgettable evening. Taking place at the Vic on the 10th of September, Reload stood out as a night to remember. With all the chaos of fresher’s week and the sheer number of events being held, it’s impossible to go to everything, but I am so glad my Tuesday ended at the Vic. Bpm, the student-run music collective, is celebrating their third year in the bubble gaining a diverse and dedicated following. With early bird tickets on sale starting in August and quickly selling out, then the second and final release tickets going just as fast, it was clear Reload was the event to be at this freshers week. Therefore, it was no surprise that an hour before the event, and in the rain, students were already forming a line outside the Vic and by 9:30 it had stretched passed Empire.

Once inside, I was greeted by two large DJs in both the main room and the side room. The main room was a popular ‘boiler style’ set up. For those who maybe are not as trendy as the bpm crowd the boiler style set-up, originating in London, is an arrangement that places the DJ booth in the center of the room, allowing the crowd to surround the DJ. The rationale behind the boiler set-up is to create a more interactive environment where the DJs and the crowd can communicate and feed off each other’s energy. Additionally, this allows space for videos and other imagery to be displayed in the background, a vital aspect of the ‘immersive sonic experience’ that bpm makes their mission.

The event was on brand with the aesthetic that the music collective has worked hard to produce. Generating an environment where people can dance, sing, and in many cases, yell. This passion and energy is what makes bpm events so enjoyable. The fact online ticket sales sold out in less than five minutes is statistical proof that everyone at Reload genuinely wanted to be there and had a fantastic time.

The crowd was noticeably larger in the main room. With everyone jumping and dancing it was the type of event where if you tried to bring your drink across the room to hunt down a cute boy or go chat with some mates, there’s an 100% chance that your drink will be empty by the time you get to the other side. However, you can’t be sensitive when people are bumping into you. It’s crowded in there and that’s kind of the point.

Although, if you needed a break from the chaos the back door in the main room leading to the smoking area was propped open for most of the night. This was nice because it helped ventilate the main dance floor. Also, this meant that if you were outside smoking you could still clearly hear the music from inside. Therefore, if one of your favorite songs started playing you could get back in there ASAP.

Overall the event was successful, consistent with the aesthetic, but without being too predictable. If you were at Reload and had a great time on Tuesday, you’re in luck because that was only the first of several events that bpm is hosting this semester.

  12. I think what you composed made a great deal of sense. But, think about this, what if you added a little content? I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create post titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.|
