We’ve got a few quick news updates for you on this beautiful NYC Friday, then we’ll jump right into the best places to get down this weekend.
- Thanks to everyone who came out to Good Room last Saturday! We had an absolute blast in the Bad Room alongside Nein Records’ Tronik Youth (who you may have heard on Beats in Space earlier this week) and Heretic; of course, the main room’s live sets from Blondes and Teengirl Fantasy and DJ set from Fixed residents JDH and Dave P were equally excellent. More nights like this one, please! In the meantime, you can catch our resident Facets this coming Thursday (July 30) at the brand new Bushwick tiki spot The Safari Room at El Cortez with special guest Dan Selzer (New York Endless/Golf Channel Recordings) — no cover all night from 10pm ’til 4am. Expect some heavy italo and lots of stellar vibes…
- We just posted our Top 20 for July, which includes awesome tracks and remixes by local luminaries like Aurora Halal, Jacques Renault, Chupacabras, and Mark Verbos, as well as current international favorites like Gemini Brothers, In Flagranti, and Timothy J. Fairplay. (Lots of label love in there too: Nein Records, Have a Killer Time, Love Tempo, Infinite Juju, and Basement Floor, to name a few.)
- Don’t say we never gave you anything: We’ve got pairs of tickets up for grabs on Twitter for next week’s sick-looking Fixed at Output with Erol Alkan (yes, he is coming back — his NYC set this past spring was outstanding, so don’t miss this!), Fort Romeau, JDH and Dave P on Friday the 31st, as well as the Full Moon festival kickoff party at Le Poisson Rouge with Moullinex, Cut Copy’s Ben Browning, AYER, and the Powerslug DJs.
