Sweat it out with some of East Coast's most on-it psychedelic underground dance producers. DC's Beautiful Swimmers return(!) to show us how its done with their infectiously funky/joyous DJ style, Blondes play one of their infamously deep live hardware sets, Terekke hits that “straight laid-back hustler groove,” & DC's young buck Jay Simon of Wild Oats fame joins for DJ sets in between. For visuals, M.D. goes high tech with a sound-responsive projection mapping installation designed by London's visuals pro Florence To.
DC's beloved purveyors of cosmic boogie house return to celebrate the release of their debut album, Son. Hitting four years after their epochal debut single Swimmers' Groove, the album sums up a half-decade's worth of cultivated crate digging, disco loop editing and scene catalyzing. As DJs, Ari Goldman & Maxmillion Dunbar have been honing their uniquely potent ear for rare Nu Groove, Dance Mania, repurposed new age thriftstore finds & everything in between, always under the mantra “strictly for the freaks...”
Loose, improvisational, heady and ecstatic, BK duo Blondes have been a vital force in the new American dance scene since 2010, with several highly sought-after hardware-based records on RVNG Intl: the aqueous EPs “Lover/Hater,” “Wine/Water,” and “Business/Pleasure” and their new LP “Swisher.” Release party!
Rising star Terekke has a totally unique and addictive sound that oozes effortless groove & tone, a vibe on the cusp of deep house but inhabiting its own smudged, soulful and introverted world. His EP “Damn” was the game changing first white label on L.I.E.S., and his new EP “yyyyyyyyy” is essential.
