Club Equinox

About the Venue

//  A HI-TECH INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE

Club Equinox presents the world's most advanced and immersive 3D simulation of a dance club, including virtual soundsystem, video system, and intelligent DMX lighting and special effects, all true to the real-life equivalent!

Just like a real club, you are right in the middle of the action with other party-goers. You can groove like crazy in front of your friends or just chill out on the side of the floor. The DJ handles the sound, lighting, and video systems. All you need to worry about is having fun!

Just like any club, we take our music collection very seriously. Our DJs pride themselves on building a vast library of music videos, 12" singles, and CDs, all on hand for those last minute requests and surprise dedications! Below is a partial listing of the repertoire of artists you might hear.

//  PROJECT HISTORY

MISSION STATEMENT:
To recreate the thrill of a live dance party in a purely virtual 3d environment.

Originally conceived in January of 2000 as part of an industrial dance music Webcast, the experimental virtual disco project quickly took shape with the continued support of many enthusiastic members and the advent of various open Web standards.

Less than one year later, "The Midnight Assembly" was established as the world's first Internet-based virtual danceclub, featuring live mix shows with realtime collaboration between online DJs and guests in an online venue.

By October of 2001, the name was changed to "Club Equinox". This coincided with a broader marketing campaign as new Web-based technologies and wideband digital music transmission capabilities became commonplace.

Prototypes for a proprietary multiplayer 3D dance venue and client-server system began in 2002. Upon completion in January 2003, this phase of the project would ultimately propel the Internet discotheque into new frontiers!

Club Equinox represents over three years of planning and conceptualization toward a revolutionary future in the way people socialize online. By creating a new paradigm in the clubbing and dating scene, we hope to provide a truly unparalleled community experience for the digital entertainment age.

//  RESIDENT DJS

NAME: DJ SorceryKid    LOCATION: Champaign, IL    RESIDENCY: 2001-Present

BACKGROUND INFO:
I've been DJing gothic and industrial for about the past five years. I first came to appreciate the art of mixing while using Virtual Turntables for the PC. I now use a dedicated booth setup complete with drum machine, samplers, and effects.

I was the lighting and sound engineer for several local concerts including Imperative Reaction, System Syn, The Cruxshadows (twice), Bella Morte, 48sin (three times), and Rachael's Surrender. I previously had a two year residency as the industrial and new wave DJ at a local club night. I've also performed on popular Live365 stations such as Club 80s, Keiichi.net Radio, and Spiderpower Sounds Radio.

Fans of my work recognize that I am very unconventional compared to most dark-dance DJs. I give a lot of attention to the creative elements of my mixes from progression to harmony to overall technique, not to mention the arsenal of trademark transitions and live remixing tricks that make every performance one to remember and cherish. DJing is my passion... music is my obsession.

FREQUENT SPINS:
Skinny Puppy, Die Warzau, Apoptygma Berzerk, Lords of Acid, Numb, The Cure, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, The Sisters of Mercy
