Line-up /Willie Graf, Arana, Cylo
Another night of spankin' tech-house from Wobble Music, joined by Massive Groove's Cylo.
Free before 11:30 with RSVP to Arana@WobbleMusic.com (your RSVP covers any guests with you). Thereafter, $15 reduced all night if you say Wobble @ the door.
Our set is from 10pm to 1am, but the party continues afterward with Willie Graff, who knows what to do.
Founder and resident DJ of the Wobble parties at CIELO in NYC, Arana relentlessly pursues the purest forms of house and techno for the dance floor, with a penchant for funk, indie/rock, Brazilian and outerspace. He frequently champions lesser known masterworks - whether deep, twisted, organic, minimal/maximal - to inspire authentic movement and feeling on the floor.
Exploring thousands of tracks from underground labels all over the world, Arana carefully selects his musical building blocks to create unusual combinations of harmony, rhythm and melody, weaving together their common elements into energetic, tightly-executed sets.
Arana honed his musical ear composing on classical guitar and playing in rock bands starting at the age of 13. After moving to NYC to practice corporate law, he randomly fell for electronic dance music in 1999, began DJing in 2003 as he juggled life as a lawyer, and then launched the first Wobble parties at NYC's top dance music venues in 2004. He currently focuses on his upstart tech-house label, Wobble Music, based in the Lower East Side and his monthly party at Cielo.
Cylo is a New York-based minimal/Tech DJ and producer with a driving beat and aggressively risky mixing technique in a town better known for its laid back style. He brings an enthusiastic stage presence to events throughout North America and Europe.
Talking about Cylo is talking about MGR - Cylo is the mastermind behind Massive Groove, an organization based in UK, Berlin and New York where he currently resides.
"One of the most interesting lessons I have learned is that whoever is behind the decks in a club has total control over the moods of each person in the room. So how I then choose to play will, in turn, affect everybody else's mood. Quite a powerful responsibility, and one which must be treated with respect."
