‘Where clubbing worlds collide' - Ny:Lon - the electronic heartbeat of two cities, New York and London, entwined through their mutually creative cutting edge scenes in music and clubbing come together. Championing forward-thinking DJs and wild Live shows.
We are happy to welcome back Subliminal Records boss and Strictly Rhythm legend, Erick Morillo. His party starting spirit behind the decks has kept him at the top of his game for over twenty years and Ny:Lon promises to be a night to catch him on top form.
Erick is joined by Radio 1’s Danny Howard, whose current ’Two Three One’ track is detonating dance floors. Rounding the line up off is Berlin’s DJ/producer and subliminal affiliate Junolarc.
Taking over our Cell 200 room and making their UK debut are Black:Star - the new live show from New Yorkers, Black Asteroid & Lady Starlight. Techno maverick Black Asteroid who’s remixed artists such as Depeche Mode is accompanied by Lady Starlight, who has been making waves since her opening shows alongside Surgeon for Lady GaGa. Their debut set in the newly refurbished Cell 200 room alongside London based Ireen Amnes is highly anticipated.
On the middle floor, one of NYC’s legendary scene shapers and larger than life characters, original Club Kid pioneer Larry Tee brings NYC Dirty Beats. Larry is known for promoting parties, playing in bands and producing tracks. Behind the scenes, he helped to launch the careers of NYC artists like Scissor Sisters, and Fischerspooner and he even coined the term ‘electroclash’.
Joining him is Tom Stephan whose sound is born out of the NYC after-hours scene and now merged with his East London base. With a discography of original and remix work that includes 17 Billboard Number One’s and reads like a whos-who of global dance music producers from Basement Jaxx to Beyoncé, Missy Elliot to Major Lazer.
To round off the floor ABSOLUTE continues to deliver twisted dark club beats fusing driving bass, strong percussive drums and haunting vocals, bringing some fun to the dance floor.
