Belgrave Music Hall, Leeds
COME ON LEEDS. Saturday night, the church of electra is in town, bring a full sermon of fat electro beats. The rave has landed, and tonight the reverend Dorian Electra will be delivering a high energetic night to his congress.
First up to get the crowd going, Coucou Chloe. Starting slowly, Coucou Chloe builds us up. Standing above us, the laptop pumped with pre produced tracks, Coucou sings and raps, building up pace song by song, until everyone is getting their dance on. By the end of her set the crowd is chanting for more.
The stage is now set, mist drifting across, the strobes warming up, the Belgrave has a feel of an underground club. Tightly packed, everyone is buzzing, I hear the chit chat of what's your favourite track, and then sudden gasp of excitement and cheers as the beat kicks in and Dorian arrives on stage. No need to warm the Leeds crowd up, they kick straight in and everyone is bouncing.
Dorian Electra crowd is heavy set with the LBGTQ+ community, absolutely loving the ever growing electro icon, delivering a full bodied set of tracks from their thought provoking second album My Agenda.
The concert is awash with a religious vibe, with the sound of a upbeat church organ rising between tracks, and a point of everyone placing hands in pray on Dorian request. Dorian kneels to the ground lights beaming down like a heavenly glow, slowing the pace down, before rising and we're back to shouting COME ON LEEDS and everyone going for it.
From religious overtones, to sword wielding dragon slayer, this gig is off the hook. One minute you feel you're set up for church, the next an xbox game, whilst pretty much constantly bouncing on your heels to Dorian Electra banging tracks.
Starting out alone on stage, we're a quarter into the gig, the music flows the stage falls dark as the mist rises again and Dorian vannishes. Arriving back to rainbow lights firing across the crowd, outfit changed and dancers in tow, it's time to kick the show up to the next level. Fan favourite Flamboyant fires up, and the phones cameras shoot up, regardless of age or status everyone has gone full fanboy.
Dorian Electa is in the UK until 10th April, if you're a fan of having a great time and love dancing to electronic pop bangers, Dorian will not disappoint you. To find out where you can check them out this time around visit https://www.dorianelectra.com/deluxe
