Dancing Room Only NYC & Forward Disco present Summer Fling…..
Join us for some daytime rooftop summer vibes with amazing djs all day long.
Eli Escobar is one of the workhorse DJs of the NYC house scene, gigging constantly and manning the decks as a co-resident of the beloved Tiki Disco soirees. Tiki Disco is considered by many to be something of a hipster’s haven—it is based in Bushwick, after all, which is the latest Williamsburg, which was the new Lower East Side, which was the reincarnation of the East Village, and so on. But don’t hold that against Escobar, who not only has a pretty good idea of what house is supposed to do (i.e., jack your body), but also can produce a pretty wicked version of the sound himself, mingling old-school vibes with an occasional hint of electro/Latin-freestyle bump and a healthy dose of disco groove.
W. Jeremy & Christy Love:
W. Jeremy is part of a collective known as House of Stank along with Christy Love. They began a weekly Wednesday party at Mr. Black, a small underground club in NYC called ‘STANK’. STANK played host to many of house musics most influential figures, one of them being the legendary Wild Pitch Acid maestro, DJ Pierre. In April 2006, they, along with DJ Pierre, launched a monthly party at STANK, dubbed “AFRO ACID: The Chicago Sessions,” where one Wednesday a month, Chicago jacked New York with such world-renowned guests as Cajmere (a.k.a. Green Velvet), Glenn Underground, Ron Carroll, Mark Grant and Harrison Crump.
In 2007 and 2008, their debut and sophomore tracks, “Baby Brain” and “4 Tha Freaks,” were released on DJ Pierre’s label, Afro Acid Digital. In 2008 and 2009, they released, “Make U Jack” and “Get Up, Yeah!” on Dust Traxx Chicago. House of Stank has remixed such artists as Larry Tee, Hannah Holland and The 2 Bears.
In the winter of 2010, they launched their own label, Get Up Recordings. The label feature releases from such artists as Tedd Patterson, Farley & Heller, Honey Dijon & Sebastian Manuel, Up Yours, The Cucarachas.
After being put on the same bill for a mid-summer jam in their native NYC, Sean Cormac, Chili Davis and Alan M realized they had common ideas for a future endeavor. Soon after, Forward Disco was born.
The music policy at all Forward Disco events is simply forward thinking dance music. Not bound by genres or rules, Forward Disco events aim to give guest artists and residents the platform to experiment beyond four to the floor. From house to classic house, disco to nu-disco, to low-slung, modern electronica; each event is custom curated with artists and promotion aimed at creating a fun environment.
