Long gone are Seattleite’s nights at Studio 7, but in case you wanted to relive the glory days, Supernova has you covered. On Friday, March 3, the Seattle club Supernova hosted Jauz for the second year in a row. That night we saw a much different Jauz than what we remember from Boo ’22, hitting the much smaller venue with a styled Off the Deep End club set.
Some of us may remember the last decade of Seattle’s EDM scene, so you might recall Jauz playing one of his first headlining shows at Studio 7 about 8 years ago. With his career completely taking off since that point, we’ve seen Jauz truly find himself as a house artist. He’s returned to us many times since the days of Studio 7, but has been back on the very same stage twice now under Supernova’s production.
Personally, some of us got our introduction to the rave scene through Studio 7 once upon a time, so being back inside the rebranded venue that is Supernova will always have an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Though the disco ball theme is unique to Supernova, the stage itself will never fail to remind us of where we started.
Deep End Club Set
Last Friday, Jauz had a special club set prepared for the night. A couple of his big hits like Don’t Leave Me and Alpha were sprinkled into the set, but overall it was mostly more laidback, steady rhythmic vibe. It’s usually expected that in venues as small as Supernova, that the crowd is a little different than your average rave/festival crowd.
Due to the variation in the audiences, club sets tend to be quite a different vibe than your average big stage show. Jauz did a great job tuning into Seattle’s energy on Friday and brought the beats to match.
For the second year in a row, Jauz sold out the venue. Now more than familiar with the sparkling stage at Supernova, he continued to leave Seattle satisfied with his crafted sets.

Local Support including Lola K, B/W, and Pyromotive
Besides Jauz himself, other Seattle stars of the local house music scene performed with pleasure and the crowd was captivated with their sounds. Lola K, B/W, and Pyromotive all threw down awesome tracks of their own and plenty of remixes. Of course we always love to see female artists appear on the set lists, and Lola K’s sound is one you’ll want to dive deeper into for sure. Pyromotive is newer to the scene, but sure showed Seattle what he’s been working on, and we can confirm the crowd will be waiting for more.

Supernova taking off as one of Seattle’s favorite venues
Supernova has quickly become one of Seattle’s top EDM spots, and there’s a lot to love about the little stage in SoDo. The flashy disco-ball theme continues to be a crowd favorite, and the bar access both upstairs and downstairs is a big plus. The large seating area is a wonderful addition for those of us who can’t always seem to rally quite like we used to, and the free coat check is an advantage for the ages when it comes to combating our usual Seattle weather.
A couple things we’d still love to see potentially add to the experience in the future would be some improvements to the air flow, as the upstairs tends to get a little too cozy for comfort. And while we understand plumbing is much more of a project to tackle, additional restrooms would be the number one request for the venue. Lines for the restrooms were a bit unbearable unfortunately, but we still managed to dance the night away anyway!
Overall, it feels as though Seattle will always welcome Jauz back with a warm welcome with each new visit and he will continue his reign as one of the PNW’s house favorites.
