With mere hours left in February, we’d like to invite you to look forward not only to the (probable) higher temperatures of March, but also to its amazing-music-packed nights. (And hey, Memorial Day weekend is now less than three months away!)

Before we get down to the best places to dance this weekend, we wanted to thank those of you who braved the nasty weather last Saturday to come out to our shindig at The Graham to dance to selections by Berlin’s super talented Franz Underwear (Slow Motion Records), No Frills locals Keith Edward and Raphael Ernesto, and, of course, our resident Facets. Speaking of Facets, he just made a stellar mix for Brooklyn Bass — listen and download via Soundcloud below.

In the spirit of hastening the next week toward the promise of spring, we’re keeping it short again this week. We are also very stoked about our party tomorrow (Saturday) night at The Graham: We’ll be playing host to Slow Motion Records’ Franz Underwear, in town all the way from Berlin, along with No Frills’ Keith Edward and Raphael Ernesto; our resident Facets will, of course, be on the decks as well. No frills, no cover, no bullshit, and a ton of stellar vibes to keep the dancefloor nice and toasty. You don’t wanna miss this one! Continue reading »

We’ll be keeping it on the short side this week, since not a whole lot of good news to report and the mid-winter blues have arrived (on the positive side, most of us have a long weekend, and there’s that lover’s celebration thing tomorrow…). Worth mentioning: Bossa is STILL closed, which means a few of the parties we’d had up here just came down… Also, on the much brighter side, we’ll be back at The Graham next Saturday (2/21) with super special guest from Berlin Franz Underwear (Slow Motion Records), No Frills’ Keith Edward and Raphael Ernesto, and, of course, our resident Facets — as usual, no cover and plenty of excellent vibes.

We have, sadly, returned from the beautiful beaches of Playa del Carmen to the filthy-snow-covered tundra known as Brooklyn… While we missed a lot of great music last weekend, we still managed to find some pretty excellent DJ sets in PDC (our former stomping grounds circa 2010). Don’t let the hype fool you: While there is definitely less happening there than during BPM, the rest of the year can be more satisfying for dancing on the beach or in a club (or, if you’re lucky, the jungle). Planning a trip? We highly recommend you hit up Canibal Royal by day, Rufino Mezcal and Ula Gula for some open-air bar lounging (or eating), and La Mezcalinna and La Santanera for late night. Also keep in mind that you’re likely to find nice DJ sets in some pretty small and random places in Playa, which can sometimes make for the best times! Continue reading »

First off, thanks to all who danced with us in the Bad Room at Good Room last weekend! We hope you enjoyed the sets from Man Power, James Friedman & Facets as much as we did, as well as the great stuff going on in the other room courtesy of DJ Qu and A.Arias. Watch this space for when we can all do it again!

And, because we are human (in spite of feeling more robot these days), it is time for a much-needed vacay. Apologies if we’re missing some last-minute postings, but we’ve tried to get up a nice selection of events on the calendar, and we feel pretty sad about missing some of the awesome stuff below… However, we’ll be back in time for next weekend!
