The Taboo Experience hit Toronto for a night
So what’s next for the man who seemingly has and can do it all? Jaime is an accomplished dancer, author, shoe designer, philanthropist, he now now he adds DJ to his list of accomplishments.
The Taboo Experience is entrancing combining disc jockeying with a laser light show, then MC’ing with a dance segment of with the help of local B-boys or girls. The vibe that the Taboo experience brings is quite unique and high energy. Taboo hit Toronto’s Uniun nightclub May 18, and it was the perfect venue for hosting The Experience, with its top notch surround sound, state of the art flat screens complimenting the led laser light system.
As a member of B.E.P Jaime has traveled the world and become a multi-platinum record selling, grammy-award winning performer.
It was quite the a sight to take in. Jaime started off his set with some bangers and then moved into more house driven club beats, which the crowd welcomed by dancing like they didn’t have a care in the world. Then Taboo mixed it up and dropped some of his own music into the mix. At points during his 90 minute set, he left the confines of the booth to MC and interact with the crowd slapping hands with them, taking a picture or two with fans, and really making The Taboo Experience interactive. Then he’d return to his decks in time to set up the next mix.When asked how are clubs different from stadiums and arenas he usually performs in, his response was that clubs are more intimate.
“In clubs I can see peoples faces and interact with them,” said Taboo. “As opposed to stadiums or arenas where you don’t really have the chance to connect with everyone, this is closer.”
The other question he was asked is if he was thinking of doing any solo music, and he said he has been working on some solo work for years but it wasn’t until recently that he felt he had all the right people in place to make it happen. Story and photos by Tee Onek
