September is turning out to be a really exciting month for us and this is part 1 of our collaboration with Singaporean label Darker Than Wax. It was destiny that the two collectives should meet in the magical island of Bali and immediately plan a collaboration that has finally been made possible in London. And we've made it a FREE party in the spirit of giving back to a scene that's nurtured and enthusiastically supported us from day 1.
Starting his label 6 years ago, Funk Bast*rd has become one of the most respected DJs in the region, and has been tirelessly pushing and promoting an alternative expression of leftfield music through his widely eclectic and genre-bending sets.
Marco spearheads the label's US operations in NYC. Dabbling in all things deep, spiritual, raw and honest, Marco is one of the brightest selectors to have emerged out of the burgeoning South-East Asian scene. His move to New York has only furthered his musical reach, and his eclectic sound palette spans across a wide range of sounds from Beats, Dancefloor Jazz, Boogie, Afro/Brazilian, Hip-Hop, House / Techno, Footwork, Dub, Soundsystem Culture and beyond, depending on the setting.
Jay Carder has grown from strength to strength recent years racking up enviable bookings and residencies with her soulful sets that never ceases to suprise and intrigue while keeping the dancefloor moving.
Kengo, one of the founding members of 4 To The Floor collective, continues to push danceable sounds of all genres, making connections between musical references as a DJ, while wearing engineer and producer hats at other times doing what he loves most in the studio.
This is a 21+ years event
Doors close at midnight.
2018 is the first full year since NYC repealed its prohibition-era Cabaret Law, which had long been an albatross hanging around the neck of the city's nightlife communities. There is now a feeling of hopefulness and optimism as the city moves into an era where dancing is no longer regulated. To celebrate, we're teaming up with Nowadays and bringing together a host of artists to highlight the vibrant communities that make New York the amazing place for nightlife it is today – while also giving some nods to the city's vaunted past. Here's how it's all going down:
When we start at 8pm, we'll be presenting a special edition of Planetarium, Nowadays' close listening session. We’ve invited Maria Chavez and Josh Dunn, two of New York's headiest selectors, to play sets interspersed with live piano performances from ambient/minimalist composer Bing & Ruth.
In order to make this portion of the night as special as it can be, we're only selling a handful of tickets so that you can stretch out, lie on the floor and get totally lost in music. Bring pillows, blankets and sleeping bags to get totally stuck in. (Don't worry–you can put them in coat check when the next portion of the evening begins.)
At 12am, we'll pick up the blankets and launch into the proper club night, with three generations of New York DJs taking the reins–Stud1nt, Adam X and Fred P–for a trip to the deepest recesses of the dance floor until late morning.
OUTDOORS AT NIGHT
Meanwhile, Nowadays' garden will host Elbin Reyes, Shawn Dub and DJ Voices, some of New York's finest selectors, playing back yard barbecue jams, followed by a late-night silent film screening with a DJed soundtrack from Unscented DJ. The outdoors will be free and open to the public for this portion of the evening.
LATE PARTY AND SUNRISE
Whilst Adam X and Fred P are holding court inside, we'll host an ambient sunrise session with live sets from Umfang and Beta Librae and DJ sets from Fergus Clark and Love Letters in the garden from 5am.
DAY PARTY WITH THE LOT RADIO
Starting at 10am outdoors, we'll have a session with one of the most essential staples of today's New York dance music community, The Lot Radio, featuring some of their all-start hosts – Llyodski, Darker Than Wax and Christine Renee. Whether it turns into a hang or a full on dance party, we're ready, and whether or not you can make it to the event, you'll be able to tune in to this portion of 24/7 online.
Love Injection have planned a series of interviews and panel discussions covering five decades of New York dance music history. The lineup includes Francois K, The Rapture's Luke Jenner and house vocalist Barbara Tucker. Nightlife icon Chi Chi Valenti, Bossa Nova Civic Club owner John Barclay and Strictly Rhythm label cofounder Gladys Pizarro are also booked, among other key industry figures. Timetable below.
Come 3PM, we'll do what Nowadays does every Sunday – have an afternoon dance in the sunshine at Mister Sunday, the party helmed by Eamon Harkin and Justin Carter.
HOW TICKETS WORK
Each ticket tier has an entry time. You'll have access to every part of the event from the time listed on your ticket, but you must arrive in your allotted time - You can then stay as long as you, and you will be permitted re-entry, but you'll need to initially arrive in your allotted timeframe.
For example, if you purchase a Planetarium ticket, you must come in between 8PM and 10PM. You can then stay as long as you want, and if you wanna head home for a disco nap, you will be permitted re-entry, so long as you arrived initially in your allotted timeframe - so essentially you're buying a ticket to the special Planetarium session plus the club night, the sunrise session, etc. If you purchase a Club Night ticket, you'll have access between 12AM Saturday and 8AM Sunday, and then re-entry until the end of Mister Sunday. If you purchase a Day Time Session ticket, you'll be required to arrive at Nowadays between 10AM and 3PM, but you'll have access until the end of Mister Sunday, and so on...
Re-entry is allowed throughout the twenty-four hours. Just make sure you don't wash your stamp off if you head home for a rest in the middle.
