Scenes From Ynfynyt Scroll's First Turn Up Party at Beauty Bar.

Lest there was any lingering doubt heading into the debut of the new weekly The Turn Up at Beauty Bar last night, Ynfynyt Scroll quickly calmed any and all nerves: Things at this popular Henderson spot are going to be just fine on Thursdays.

Offering up a largely hip-hop driven set with some of his more experimental dancehall, Latin and juke tastes sprinkled in here and there, the Track Meet DJ and producer born Rodrigo Diaz kept things sweaty, grimy and decidedly fast-paced on the dancefloor, eliciting an especially hyped-up response when, around 1 a.m. he dropped a slew of Dallas' greatest hip-hop hits, among them The GS Boys' 2008 smash, “Stanky Legg.”

It was a new night at the bar, sure, but it mostly felt familiar, to be frank. Those not intimately familiar with the recent shakeups in the area DJ scene that spawned this new weekly hardly even seemed to notice a change. Those who were aware of it, meanwhile, welcomed with open arms the chance to try a little something new at this party, which in future weeks will find Diaz joined by his likeminded collaborator Lil Texas.

And that, perhaps, is the bottom line of all these changes in the Dallas DJ residency landscape: Change is good; more is generally a good thing.

Last night proved it.
