The Fall Starts Off With Bangers
NYC Nightlife 9/8-9/9
Jamie 3:26 was in Chicago for the birth of house music. He fell in love with genre dancing to Ron Hardy’s sets at the Muzic Box and when he stepped into the booth himself in the `80s, his name took inspiration from the legendary club’s address, 326 Lower North Wacker Drive. Today he takes the spirit of the Midwest with him wherever he goes, continuing the sonic legacy of the genre during every DJ set. You can hear this house hero, edit master, and DJ maestro for yourself at the Golden Record NYC’s party this Friday at Jolene.
Aptly named after the melted cheese dish, Fundido does not hesitate to play music from the more light hearted side of the italo and funk - the ‘cheesier’ tracks, if you will. Started by Billy Scher and Latane Hughe seven years ago, the duo set out to keep Brooklyn dancefloors fun with selections that also include proto, acid, progressive house, and even some hits thrown in for good measure. They’re bringing their queso party to Black Flamingo this Friday.
Big sounds and bold flavors collide at The Nursery this Saturday when the Bêvèrãgęš crew takes over for an afternoon affair. The roving party by DJ and restaurant veterans pairs music with natural wines for a full-body experience. Like their grape selections, the music by residents Seedy J and Brian Vino always feels joyful and uplifting. Brazilian-born, Brooklyn-based label owner Renate Do Valle will also be sharing her eclectic and colorful records at the party.
Rick ‘the Godson’ Wilhite has dedicated his life to dance music. Since starting his DJ career in Detroit in 1986, he has also added producer, record store owner, music historian and promoter to his resume. It’s fair to say that whatever one wants to know about Rick, it is conveyed through his music. You can learn more about him and his love for house and disco this Saturday at Public Records.
