We’ve got a quick PSA for you before we jump into our picks for NYC’s best places to dance this weekend: Please give a warm welcome to Brooklyn’s newest record label, Samo Records! (Label head happens to be none other than our resident, Facets, and its pretty excellent logo comes from local design whiz Nick Martin.) The first release details were unveiled this week (date TBD but soon), with two original tracks by Pixelife, as well as those tracks’ remixes by Tronik Youth and Antoni Maiovvi.

The world has been an increasingly sad, depressing, and scary place as of late. While there are no magical answers or solutions for the problems and situations behind all of that, the dancefloor can act as both a refuge and an escape.
