Thanks to everyone who kept the party rolling with us at our new home, Sub-T Lounge! As we continue with our Fall lineup, we’re excited to present Pittsburgh / Philly’s own RCMP as our guest headliner! This event will also double as the Chicago release party for their new album “RCMP II.” Check out their Soundcloud & Label page for a selection of choice tunes. This month we’ll be looking at music from 1987 and the house music those years inspired. RSVP via do312.com for free entry before 11pm!
A.D. [After Disco] v.8 w/ RCMP (Young Robots, Philadelphyinz), Yazi the DJ, Kwest-On
Exploring a decade in House music 1979-89… & future forward.
It was a publicity stunt gone awry, backlash from years of commercialized dance music. Steve Dahl’s infamous Disco Demolition Night (July 12, 1979) may have marked the end of an era to some, but Disco lived on in the ‘underground’ –thriving in fact– eventually finding a new voice as House music. Forced to continually evolve with the times and technology, House music’s rich history is based in a struggle for creative freedom, a struggle which defines the genre to this day.
Presented by Electric Elegance and Ground Lift Media, the new monthly event series A.D. (After Disco) takes a closer listen to the tumultuous post-Demolition Night years, and celebrates the emergence and evolution of House music & culture. Every 2nd Friday, A.D. takes over Chicago’s Sub-T Lounge with a featured lineup of rising and journeyman talents including Yazi the DJ and Kwest-On. And for the October event we’re happy to welcome direct from Pittsburgh / Philly, RCMP!
A.D. aims to invoke and inspire a movement. In the beginning there was Disco, now let’s learn about what happens After Disco…..
RCMP IS A DISCO STATE OF MIND CREATED BY DJ APT ONE & RELATIVE Q.
When it came out on vinyl in the summer of 2009, the RCMP EP signaled the arrival of a brave new force in disco. As the “nu-disco” sound was on the rise, the forward-thinking classicism of RCMP hit the scene like a left hook. DJ Apt One and Relative Q’s narrative song-writing reminded people that it’s ok to cry on the dancefloor. Babies were conceived to this record.
Soon, with support from worldwide tastemakers like Glasgow’s Optimo, NYC’s Cosmo Baker and the cosign of XLR8R magazine, Discobelle and other outlets, the record quickly sold out of vinyl units worldwide and the digital EP and the singles it spawned, Mustache Love and USA Groove, shot up the charts at digital retailers. This, of course, was only the beginning.
Fall 2011 will see the release of RCMP II, with a remix EP featuring Elvis Suarez (Strictly Rhythm), DJ Ayres (T&A/Young Robots), Fifteenth (Fools Gold), Pink Skull (RVNG Int’l), Burnso (Young Robots), Laberge (Solid Bump) and Pumpkin Patch (Young Robots).
