From reserved to risqué to a bit too rowdy, the Boiler Room x Electronic Beats Budapest function on 5 March was full of quintessential club-goer archetypes. Parties, no doubt, enable all the entertaining (and sometimes messy) sides of the human experience. Now, in these uncertain times, this is the sin non qua of the club ecosystem and the aspect of the dancefloor we miss the most: the eclectic collection of people who congregate on it.
Watch the stream and spot the notable protagonists of the night: the guy repeatedly invading Minor Science’s personal space by trying to take a mid-set selfie video, the girl in the sparkling iridescent two-piece grooving right behind DJ Seinfeld, and all the people gurning too hard on camera. In this Sound & Style series though, photographer Lucas Christiansen opts for the individuals who kept it more low key.
Take a look at the images from the last party to buoy spirits in anticipation of more news on Boiler Room Cologne and Prague, which have been postponed until further notice. Below, Christiansen captures a proper joie de vivre, rife with memories to carry through the social distancing.
