Hometown DJ, Lamont Kohner (stage name assumed by Patrick Benolkin) began his set to a sparse crowd at Boise’s China Blue, but by the end of his set, the dance floor would be packed and the beats would be ingrained in your psyche.

His style is surprisingly tight and infectious; enough so even Greg got up and moved, and he never dances to electronic music in public. With an ever-present awareness, Kohner’s transitions were virtually seamless and the crowd kept up.

We had every intention of soaking in as much as possible around town Friday night, but thanks to Lamont Kohner, we couldn’t leave China Blue if we tried.
