Dance Away From The Club
We’re stepping outside the club onto dance floors unknown this week. Let’s be real, the club isn’t for everyone: the people, the lights and the sound can be a little overwhelming. But we firmly believe everyone deserves to dance.
As the saying goes “There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.” Therefore we are highlighting four parties for those of you who are a little club shy. Enjoy.
NYC Nightlife 7/12-7/15
7.12 - Wax The Van with Latane Fundido at Good Bar
Wax The Van is a weekly party that gives music lovers a look inside DJs' record collections. The Wednesday night listening series is hosted by Timo Lee who invites some of Brooklyn’s best/weirdest/most interesting DJs to share some deep cuts, giving DJs the opportunity to play records they don’t normally get to play in the club. This week’s guest is Latane Fundido. Latane is a lover of house, disco and balearic sounds from around the world who can be seen playing around NYC as part of Fundido and Earth Beat.
Moon Tower is a party series that roams around Brooklyn as free as the dancers who come to it. Over the years they have thrown events mostly in parks, but also metal shops, basketball courts and lofts. For this round they’re taking over an art gallery in Williamsburg, The Locker Room, on the eve of a new moon for a night of deep dancing and pleasure. There six DJs across two levels with Russell E.L. Butler, Stewey Decimal (Pleasure Jams), Miss Alicia, and Unfurl Earl upstairs plus Party Dad and pizza.net soundtracking the chill zone downstairs.
Picture this, you’re cruising down the Hudson checking out the NYC skyline with the Statue of Liberty in the distance, feeling the sunshine on your back while listening to all killer, no filler disco and house. Sounds like a perfect Saturday afternoon to us. 718 Sessions is hosting a series of boat parties this summer with Danny Krivit behind the decks. Danny has been DJing in the city since the mid-1970s and is about as New York as they come so we can’t think of a better person to soundtrack dancing on deck this Saturday.
Bradley Zero’s biography states that he is the tastemaker of a generation. In our opinion, he is. Bradley started his Rhythm Section radio show and party in London in 2009 and has since started his own record label, hosted Boiler Room, held down a residency on NTS Radio and thrown parties at the Jazz Cafe. Oh yeah, and he’s toured the world a few times. Bradley explores the realm of contemporary jazz, slapping house, and jacking breaks which sounds like the perfect Sunday afternoon vibe in The Nursery at Public Records.
