TReSolute: Resolute's 3rd Anniversary
For 3 unshakable years, ReSolute has brought us together to a mind-opening journey of cutting edge electronic music while consistently serving up the inconsistent. From ping-pong clubs and sacred synagogues, to the smoky hallways of addresses desconocidos, to the boggy waterways of Brooklyn boats, sans capitaine…No matter the incarnation, the sun relentlessly rises and shines on our valiant faces, at just the right angle, at the peak of the tweak, etching itself forever in our DNA. Our parties are the floor that we dance upon, the canvas on which we paint out own intense connections with the music we worship, the friends we are devoted to, and the beautiful cities to which we give our bodies. Let’s celebrate together in honor of the past three years and many more to come.
We are very happy to welcome for their first ReSolute experience, two young talents that have inspired us for the last 3 years towards this celebration -
Frenchman Shonky has done what many of us dream of - gave up that job in a bank, bought a pair of decks, started tinkering with computers, learned to program, and became the brilliant and talented DJ/Producer that everyone is talking about. His natural aptitude for producing was immediately evident with releases like Let Me Ask U, his remix of Mlle Caro & Franck Garcia’s Far Away, and his love affair with the music has become an obsession. Lucky for us..
The Parisian, Brittish, Turkish Berliner, Tolga Fidan, will be celebrating his birthday with us this Saturday with his unique Live set. This is his first ever trip to the america, so, please don't be too rude to him. Tolga broke into the electronic dance music consciousness with his first release on Vakant in 2006. Being the label’s youngest-ever, and exclusive artist, he immediately earned the esteem of fans and techno heavyweights. His music has found appeal with the masses with tracks licensed to Cocoon for their seventh and eighth season Ibiza mix compilations. His musical style sits between the sublime and the masterful, taking a creative approach to a linear sound.
And of course ... ReSolute resident's Elon and Connie who have shaped ReSolute sound for the last 3 years. Elon recently returned to his home base, NY, and is ready to kick things off along with his partner in crime, Connie. He also has a nice package that is looking for a nice tight home.
Aside from the aural pleasure, we decided to put some extra effort on the visual artistry to craft our space. Our very talented friend Seanna will be creating a sensual experience of tactility and color, including a dance-sculpture installation, decor / design, and a secret surprise ;)
