Saturday, March 1st.
10pm-late $10 all night!
Jackpot is a monthly party I’ve done with Still Life for over 3 years at the Commodore in Brooklyn. We focus on heavy funk, northern soul, 50s RnB, garage and psyche rock, salsa, cumbia, afrobeat, early disco, modern, whatever we feel really. Mostly groovy and/or raw tracks that came out on a 7″ format between the 50s and the 70s. Vintage sounds for a modern age. Snap crackle and pop over overproduced bullshit. In a nutshell…real schitt.
I’ve been wanting to do an all night loft party with this format for a while, and hats of to Gemini and Scorpio for hosting us in their comfortable space (with roof deck!). My fab roommate Sam will be handing the bar. Plus we’ll have treats mudflap would approve of.
dress ideas (come as you are, we’re just suggestin’): vintage threads for vintage tunes. 60Ts Mod, Blow Up, Quadrophenia, Mad Men, 70s disco shirts ala Nik Nik, bowling league circa ’67, Kauai circa ’69, shriner meeting in Idaho circa ’73, bell bottoms, hip huggers, leisure suits, fedoras, fezzes, kangols, track suits…if you know me then you know.
About the DJs:
Jackpot co-host and does the ‘Worldwide Smash’ show on East Village Radio weekly. When not promoting records and reissues for the fine Strut label among others, you can find him killing it around NYC. Does his thang!
a transplanted Frenchmen, and we’re lucky to have this ace record collector and DJ here in the big apple. Lotsa european rarities, boogaloo, popcorn, space disco, everything really. Also wheels and deal records and clothes in the Chelsea Market. Very sharp dude, a true mod. And its his birthday!
one of the founders of the Ego Trip crew responsible for a fine blog/magazine/books/tv/endless really. Also does a lot of music programming and interviews for the Red Bull Music Academy. Mao one of the most serious music heads in NYC, his knowledge and record collection are stupidly deep. One of the best!
a man of many talents, Edan is an acclaimed MC, Producer, and of course a sick DJ. Check his records or mixtapes…even his homemade cover art is the shit. From rare funk to crazy psyche rock to beyond…
another MC who does double duty on the decks, and is no joke on either. J recently released ‘The Peter Pan Syndrome’ this year and also came out with a hilarious book documenting his time in the music game, ‘Root for the Villian’. Expect doubles of classic and unknown bboy breaks done correctly…
just some guy with a few rekkids 😉 I love playing funky 45s in the wee hours so stay late!! Besides putting this together and co-hosting the Jackpot monthly with Still Life, I also do a weekly show on WFMU and have playing around NYC for 20 years…
