Please allow us to explain...
It was perhaps the most beautiful time in recent music history; the visceral, distorted synths, the snarling disco bass-lines and crunchy snares of elektro (brought to us by artists such as Justice and MSTRKRFT) crossed over perfectly with the sounds of the already established gritty, guitar-driven
disco-punk movement (as championed by bands like The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem and Radio 4), and was a natural progression from the experimental, wonderful weirdness of the electroclash scene (brought to life by New York legend Larry Tee). There was a certain joy and innocence to dance music in those days - a willingness to experiment and have fun, and a punk-rock aesthetic that has long since been lost - but not forgotten.
Recently, A-Trak captured some of the spirit of the time with a "blog haus" mix that caused a bit of an internet stir and got a few of us talking (Listen to A-Trak's recent blog haus mix here).
In case you can't tell, we are all really hyped to get the gang back together for a night to celebrate the music that holds a special place in our hearts... We are making this one free 'til midnight with rsvp and throwing in a vodka open bar because that's just the vibe. The response so far has been incredible and it is pretty safe to say that it's going to get wild.
The venue is Studio 299 which is a great new room we found in East Williamsburg/Bushwick - just a short walk from the Grand stop on the L train. It has a Funktion-One sound system, reasonably priced drinks, a smoking rooftop and a chill vibe. It has been used by Resolute, Blk Market and Rinsed, and is the new home for the GHE20G0TH1K parties.
So join us this Saturday for D.A.N.C.E. - a night of blog haus with Designer Drugs, Ultragrrl, VIKING, Karenplusone and Alex English throwing down tunes by: Justice, MSTRKRFT, Chromeo, Vitalic, Soulwax, The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem, Breakbot, La Roux, Peaches, Ladytron, Tiga, Cut Copy, Crookers, Bloody Beetroots, Boys Noize, Spank Rock, Uffie, Busy P, Daft Punk, Fred Falke, Felix Da Housecat, Fake Blood, The Presets, Klaxons, Mr Oizo, Yelle, Sebastian, Crystal Castles, Designer Drugs, Le Tigre, CSS, New Young Pony Club, Empire Of The Sun, Treasure Fingers, Fischerspooner, Princess Superstar, Franz Ferdinand, MGMT, Ratatat, Digitalism, Bloc Party, M.I.A., Ladyhawke, Scissor Sisters, Annie, The Gossip, LA Riots, Radio 4, Playgroup and more.
