Electric Boogaloo


The dance floor at Mercury Lounge thumps tonight with DJ Robb Mengay's Top 40, indie-rock, and import techno mixes. "Rock music has evolved into an electronic sound that's happening for a moment right now," says Mengay, who singles out DJs MSTRKRFT, Justice, and Simian for pioneering the latest "cool new sound." For eight years, the 26-year-old Mengay has been spinning tracks at local dance clubs with one objective in mind: "I look for the dance floor, man, and do what I have to do to get people on it. If you give them something they can relate to, you will have a much better time, because everyone's having a party."
