In a NY last minute, Xmas shopping madness ends with an all night benefit event which gifts 100% of its profits to the homelessness and hospitalized children on Xmas Eve! Admission requires a tangible donation which we will be filming to capture touching moments that you help create as we randomly give all proceeds to children in hospitals and homeless in NYC.
While keeping ahead of living costs is hard enough, donating to a corporate-like non-profit that places proceeds into an unknown bank for an unknown time to an unknown group/area to those in future need, is a system for the sheeple. Maaaan, Funk Dat! Get a new job. Like the man says, 'We are here to make a change'.
So, come kick back and relax those tired Xmas shopping feet and Xperience a difference that shall magically manifest a tingling sensation of pure joy and happiness amongst other like-minded friends as your music instructors donate their time and service with good cause.
WARNING! This event may expose oneself to addictive behaviors commonly produced via moonlight;
and we praise,
until the sweat drips down off our face,
2 rooms as 18 DJ's get deep in this place.
We get deep y'all, we get deep!
Yea, that's right! Just so happens to be many favored DJ's who fuel the good vibe are home for the holidays. Come unite as NY is blessed to have a line-up capable of unearthing roots to bring back its ancient vibe with gifted artists from Italy to California as they rock the Xmas bells in NYC on December 23rd 2009!

Our emotional state of choice is Ecstasy. Our nourishment of choice is Love. Our addiction of choice is technology. Our religion of choice is music. Our currency of choice is knowledge. Our politics of choice is none. Our society of choice is utopian though we know it will never be.
You may hate us. You may dismiss us. You may misunderstand us. You may be unaware of our existence. We can only hope you do not care to judge us, because we would never judge you. We are not criminals. We are not disillusioned. We are not drug addicts. We are not naive children. We are one massive, global, tribal village that transcends man-made law, physical geography, and time itself. We are The Massive. One Massive.
We were first drawn by the sound. From far away, the thunderous, muffled, echoing beat was comparable to a mother's heart soothing a child in her womb of concrete, steel, and electrical wiring. We were drawn back into this womb, and there, in the heat, dampness, and darkness of it, we came to accept that we are all equal. Not only to the darkness, and to ourselves, but to the very music slamming into us and passing through our souls: we are all equal. And somewhere around 35Hz we could feel the hand of God at our backs, pushing us forward, pushing us to push ourselves to strengthen our minds, our bodies, and our spirits. Pushing us to turn to the person beside us to join hands and uplift them by sharing the uncontrollable joy we felt from creating this magical bubble that can, for one evening, protect us from the horrors, atrocities, and pollution of the outside world. It is in that very instant, with these initial realizations that each of us was truly born.
We continue to pack our bodies into clubs, or warehouses, or buildings you've abandoned and left for naught, and we bring life to them for one night. Strong, throbbing, vibrant life in it's purest, most intense, most hedonistic form. In these makeshift spaces, we seek to shed ourselves of the burden of uncertainty for a future you have been unable to stabilize and secure for us. We seek to relinquish our inhibitions, and free ourselves from the shackles and restraints you've put on us for your own peace of mind. We seek to re-write the programming that you have tried to indoctrinate us with since the moment we were born. Programming that tells us to hate, that tells us to judge, that tells us to stuff ourselves into the nearest and most convenient pigeon hole possible. Programming that even tells us to climb ladders for you, jump through hoops, and run through mazes and on hamster wheels. Programming that tells us to eat from the shiny silver spoon you are trying to feed us with, instead of nourish ourselves with our own capable hands. Programming that tells us to close our minds, instead of open them.
Until the sun rises to burn our eyes by revealing the distopian reality of a world you've created for us, we dance fiercely with our brothers and sisters in celebration of our life, of our culture, and of the values we believe in: Peace, Love, Freedom, Tolerance, Unity, Harmony, Expression, Responsibility and Respect.
Our enemy of choice is ignorance. Our weapon of choice is information. Our crime of choice is breaking and challenging whatever laws you feel you need to put in place to stop us from celebrating our existence. But know that while you may shut down any given party, on any given night, in any given city, in any given country or continent on this beautiful planet, you can never shut down the entire party. You don't have access to that switch, no matter what you may think. The music will never stop. The heartbeat will never fade. The party will never end.
