DJ Logic and Friends @ Ardmore Music Hall.

On Saturday night, DJ logic was joined at Ardmore Music Hall by musical guests Marc Brownstein of the Disco Biscuits, Break Science’s Borahm Lee, Michael Travis of String Cheese Incident and Rob Compa from Dopapod.

There wasn’t much elbow room in the venue on Lancaster Avenue. As soon as DJ Logic took to the decks, the crowd moved and swayed together. The lack of elbow room wasn’t of consequence.

DJ Logic played an eclectic mix of trip-hop and R&B littered with jazz samples from one side of his mixer. One the other side was contemporary electronic sounds that set the tone for the jazz inspired set of Jamtronica that was to follow.

From the start, Lee’s keyboard solos in the jam session were prevalent. Twisting knobs and pressing keys with a graceful yet furious pace. Lee and his keyboard produced sounds that mixed with the samples from Logic’s turntables.

The night also included some guitar work from Compa.

“I have never heard him (Compa) shred like that.” said Mark Draer of Washington, D.C. “I am really glad we made the trip up 95 tonight.”

DJ Logic will continue touring, heading to New England and his native Brooklyn, before heading out west to Colorado.

Brownstein and the Disco Biscuits will begin touring in March and return to Philadelphia for three nights at the Filmore, starting on April 19.
