Kyle Watson continues to make a name for himself as a rising international DJ in the house music scene. The South African artist has been producing music for over the past decade. As such, he recently released his first album titled, Into The Morning. Also, he has partnered with the likes of Oliver Heldens and Malaa. Furthermore, he has featured his music on record labels such as Ultra Records and Dirtybird Records.
Shortly before heading to Los Angeles to perform at the HARD Summer Music Festival, Kyle Watson performed a show on August 2, 2019. As such, Kyle Watson at Halcyon nightclub in San Francisco was not his first appearance at this venue. In fact, he performed there before on March 17, 2018.
Kyle Watson at Halcyon
As soon as doors opened, the patrons noticed that Halcyon’s interior looked very dimmed and has a slight haze. Nonetheless, the patrons still had a good time conversing with their friends and significant others while they waited for the music to play. Most nightclub shows in San Francisco usually end at 2:00 AM but for this show, it planned to conclude at 4:00 AM.
Before Watson performed his set, I conducted an interview with him and we had a great chat together. Some of the things he discussed in the interview include his time producing Into The Morning, the current state of the South African EDM scene, and his planned set at HARD Summer the next day since he had to fly out to Los Angeles after his show at Halcyon ended. When he walked down the stairs, everyone delightfully screamed and thus began a great night of house music.
Partying Until The Crack of Dawn
Everyone started to get on their feet and dance the night away as soon as Kyle Watson started to perform. Notably, the club has a VIP seating zone that’s placed behind the DJ set. Because of that, there were a few people that approached Watson and gave him fist bumps and high-fives while he was still performing his set.
Kyle Watson’s performance at Halcyon showed the audience why his popularity continues to increase every year in the house music scene. Even as the show approached the wee hours of the day, people continued to dance nonstop to his performance. It will not be long until he becomes a headlining act at major festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, and EDC in the near future.
