Belgium - For The Oh! dance music club night in Belgium, a tried-and-tested formula of world-class DJ sets and a string of high-profile singles is proving to hold the key to its popularity and longevity, which recently reached the quarter century milestone.
To celebrate 25 years of The Oh!, both old and new generations of Belgian dance music lovers were united in a recent anniversary party that reflected all of the excitement and energy that have made the club famous.
Tasked with providing energetic visuals for The Oh! once again was Belgium design house CRS Rental Solutions, which designed an immersive stage set-up with a Chauvet Professional rig that included 32 STRIKE P38, 12 Maverick MK2 Spot, 19 Rogue R2 Wash, 46 COLORdash PAR H12IP and 24 Rogue RH1 Hybrid fixtures.
In order to build the visual centrepiece upon which artists could perform, Thomas Vandekerkhove and his team at CRS peppered the rigging structure above the stage with the STRIKE P38 fixture. As a result of the combination of audience blinder and strobe, the punchy 90W warm white LED source was on hand to elevate the EDM DJs taking to the stage by evoking that classic feeling of ‘90s dance parties.
"The P38s awarded the fairly cavernous venue with a proper club ambience," commented Vandekerkhove. “In addition to strobing and blinding effects for visual energy, the warm white tungsten effect ensured that we could introduce a classic house vibe to the stage, which really transformed key moments within several of the performances.”
While the P38s provided the familiar visuals synonymous with dance events of the previous decades, Vandekerkhove was able to provide contrasting looks with the comparatively contemporary pulsating energy of the Maverick MK2 Spot fixtures. Complementing the Maverick fixtures, an additional collaborative effort between the Rogue R2 Wash and Rogue RH1 Hybrid ensured Creative Rental Solutions had the tools with which to create further interesting effects on stage.
“With the Rogue R2 Wash’s saturated colour palette and the RH1’s versatility, the combination was able to comfortably fill the huge Waregem Expo hall,” he continued. “The stunning output of both fixtures not only served to heighten atmosphere on stage, but also within the crowd.”
Providing further dashes and wisps of colour on stage were the carefully placed COLORdash PAR H12IP fixtures.
