Geek x Vrv is a dynamic DJ pair that combine many different genres such as jazz, funk and electric hip-hop to create their signature sound. The French duo is currently on their North American tour and made a stop at Aisle 5 in Little Five Points to show ATLiens what they are all about.

The electric show opened with Robby D and Poldoore who both brought a unique energy to the stage that got fans off their feet and grooving to the beat of their music. Both DJ’s played a mix of original and non-original sounds, adding their own twist to the music.

A little after midnight, Geek x Vrv took the stage with full force and demanded attention from the moment the beat dropped. They played many of their hits like “It’s Because,” the song that has catapulted them into the spotlight and has since achieved notice by many world-known DJs like GRiZ and Pretty Lights.  

The French DJ's had an electric vibe to them.

I have seen my fair share of DJs throughout the years, but none have had the stage presence like Geek x Vrv did at Aisle 5. The entire night they were dancing and having fun, which was contagious for everyone watching. With a lack of psychedelic visuals that most DJ’s tend to have, they made up for it with their music and visible energy (has anyone ever seen Skrillex hiding in his giant box?). At one point I looked around the room and fans were letting loose–like no one was watching.

The show went on until a little after 2 a.m. Even then, fans were not ready to leave. I heard some shout for an encore before the venue turned the lights on and kicked everyone out. After seeing Geek x Vrv for the first time, I can say they are one of the most fun DJ groups I have photographed.

Combatting the worst wedding crasher: The ‘Rona

Planning a wedding can take a lot of work. There are a lot of things to consider: the venue, food, drink, music, date, time, guest lists, weather and much more. On average, it takes a couple 13 to 18 months to plan a wedding, but it can be much longer. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that a lot can happen in any given time frame. Like a worldwide pandemic.

Cancel Culture Is Toxic

“Twitter, do your thing,” is a toxic line used to expose someone, a brand or company that is displaying problematic behavior.
It is the epitome of cancel culture, the idea that someone can be cancelled based on their unsettling remarks or ideologies. Although the term “cancel culture” is new, the act behind it is not. The trend is particularly popular amongst Gen Z’ers and Millennials.

TikTok: The Great Social Equalizer of Apps

TikTok is something of a great equalizer when it comes to social media apps. People of all ages flock to it because it’s fun, easy to use and there’s something for everyone. Whether that’s makeup, POVs, art or hot takes on your favorite childhood show, it’s the place to find your niche and maybe make a profit.
