We don't advertise on Facebook at all, just pass it along word-of-mouth so everybody who shows up has heard about it from someone they know personally. This isn't about exclusivity - it's still open to anyone it's designed to foster a feeling of ownership and belonging. We also give everyone these ridiculous fruit-shaped noisemakers at the door just to set the mood and put a smile on their face.

The effect that it has had is incredible, people are smiling and open and talk to each other like friends. We've had between 150-200 people each time, which is just about perfect for the space. I'm so proud of it, they're easily the best thing I've done as a DJ so far.

Anyone who knows their dance-music history will see that we're basically just trying to follow David Mancuso's ethic as closely as possible!

Thanks again, Scott. You've already been a ton of help. I'll definitely be in touch again once we get serious about building our own subs.

Mr. Scott Fitlin
