2015 is rapidly approaching… which means we are literally counting down the hours until our big 9-hour NYE throwdown at The Graham! As you may be aware, we’ve got a killer lineup playing with us: Willie Burns, Tom Noble, Dan Selzer, Soul 2 Seoul, Ex Ex Ex, and, of course, our resident Facets. Get advance $25 tickets now at Resident Advisor and we’ll catch you on the dancefloor Wednesday night/Thursday morning!

We want you to get better acquainted with some of the heavyhitters who’ll be gracing the decks at The Graham for NYE, so we posed a few questions to WT Records’ Willie Burns, Dan Selzer (New York Endless), Soul 2 Seoul, and Facets
