Brooklyn Bass Residents:
*** RSVP to http://goo.gl/4ck1O ***
Matteo Ruzzon moved to the Jackson Heights neighborhood of Queens, NY back in the early nineties. After growing up in Padova, Italy and amassing a collection of house and techno, he continues his pursuits in the big apple by frequenting various flea markets and discovering obscure and looked over tracks on a daily basis. His self-produced work naturally came to fruition and found homes on renouned labels such as Meakusma, Workshop, Morphine Records, Lanquid, Sahko, The Trilogy Tapes, and Hinge Finger ( of Peter O’Grady from Joy Orbison). Matteo’s lo-fi and leftfield approach to electronic music has defined his career and adds character to his DJ Sets.
Tony Naples graced the decks at our very first after hours party at Cameo Gallery back in June; to say the least that night was one for the books. Growing up in Miami and developing a penchant for artists like DJ Laz and Power 96, Anthony has honed in on his craft and incorporated these sounds of the times. His first release on the newly founded Mister Saturday Night label is also their first. Tracks like Mad Disrespect and Tusk are built with Garage and Jersey Sound in mind; vintage sounding drum machines swing off time with paired vocal samples. Since then he’s gone on to big things like remix Four Tet’s 128 Harps on Text Records.
An up-and-coming blog on the NYC circuit, Brooklyn Bass is quickly making their rounds within the electronic scene. Hosting a monthly after-hours residency at Cameo Gallery, you can find DJs Judge Wise, T’Angelo and Evan Michael hosting the most current local artists such as Justin Miller, Point Break, and Juan Maclean. All three of these young editors take their time to carefully curate their blog with the latest reviews of international dance tracks and nearby happenings. Be on the look out for their monthly podcasts and weekly event listings as well. In a live context, expect these dudes to hold no bars. T’Angelo and Judge Wise throw down shaking Bass music and Deep House, While Evan Michael stirs it up with house and disco classics.
