LISTEN TO SILK : WAREHOUSE DANCE PARTY
Say hello to Los Angeles, via the Brooklyn underground dance sound. This party is a showcase of artists in NY with new releases coming on 100% Silk, sublabel of Not Not Fun records. The warehouse is huge and will be filled with projections and lasers. Free glowsicks at the door, funky outfits encouraged.
LIVE SETS BY:
100% SILK DJs:
Steve Summers, Ital, Magic Touch, DJ Pickpocket (Donuts-SF), Jan Woo. Spinning a mix of boogie/disco/detroit techno/chicago house/baltimore club, mystery tunes +++
Ital is the new dancefloor oriented solo project of Daniel Martin McCormick (of Mi Ami, Black Eyes, Sex Worker). With 2 sold out 12"s, a much loved collab with LA Vampires, a recent performance at PS1 and a euro tour in the fall, Ital is making waves with his infectious and deranged house-inspired tunes.
Innergaze is a duo of Aurora Halal and J. Letkiewicz, who make raw, hazy and catchy minimal synth/house with analog synths and drum machines. Their new release on Silk, 'Shadow Disco' has a mutant disco flare, with additional drums and synare provided by Damon Palermo of Magic Touch (also performing tonight).
New solo project by Damon Palermo (the other half of Mi Ami, and percussionist for Jonas Reinhardt). Magic Touch makes superfunky sample-based dance music in the 90s house vein- with psychedelic filters, crazy/catchy sequencing, and fun collaborative elements - top notch guitar shredding by Josh Anzano on one song, and keyboards by Honey Owens (Miracles Club) on another. You dont want to miss this live set.
Shams (Jonathan Coward) is a much loved brooklyn house-meets-noise producer, who's new record on Silk features the vocals of Susan Ploetz of Finesse.
Mysterious Brooklyn via New Hampshire based producer Octo Octa is the newest addition to Silk, making what he calls 'dance tracks influenced by House, UK Bass, Italo, Disco, Reggaeton, and everything else dance. Built for bass and booty shakes.'
