This event is all ages
Daniel Pineda and Asma Maroof, a k a Nguzunguzu. The group, which takes its name from a traditional Solomon Island figurehead used to protect against supernatural forces during canoe trips, offers a unique blend of R&B, house, cumbia and tribal music. They are known for improvising with, well, really weird sounds achieved through electronic instruments and a room full of synthesizers, as well as for an energy that Hanratty says is "incredible."
"Paul Salva is a funky motherf-cker," says The FADER. Beyond those who already know this, the rest of the electronic music world is catching wind of the 29 year old producer, DJ, promoter and label boss. Already heralded by the Numbers, Ernest Endeavors and LuckyMe crews in the UK, the Low End Theory residents in LA and his own Frite Nite label/crew in SF, Salva is primed as he preps the release of his debut album, Complex Housing for the Friends of Friends (FoF Music) label.
Growing up in Chicago in the 80's, Salva cites early inspiration in all sorts of of electronic and sampled-based music ranging from electro, juke, analog house, ghetto house, underground hip hop and bass productions. With a strong foot in all of these idioms, Salva creates a future-leaning style of electronic dance music that is all his own. Shimmering synthesizers collide with funky vintage drum programming, heavy bass drops and rapid arpeggios to create an album that remain both listenable and danceable.
MikeQ Is one of the leading figures of the East Coast’s long-running (but still largely underground) ballroom/vogue-house scene. Based in New Jersey, the 26 year old producer is not only one of the most in-demand ballroom DJs, but he also heads up his own Qween Beat team and turns out a steady stream of vogue and ballroom tracks, re-edits, and remixes.
DJ Weird Magic
DJ Weird Magic, a.k.a. Erez Avissar, will be holding it down, spreading his "magic" throughout the night. Avissar doubles as one of NYC's best photographers and one of its best party-throwing DJs, taking photos for Pitchfork, et. al. and putting on shows across the globe. He's played recently alongside homies Teengirl Fantasy, and Dutch E Germ among others-- and if those parties and his Soundcloud are any indication, Avissar'll fuse pulsing techno and techno with more far-out sounds and keep the night sweaty 'til late.
