James Murphy and Soulwax’s David and Stephen Dewaele are bringing Despacio, their “one-of-a-kind sound system designed to deliver absolutely optimum audio to the dance floor, showcasing classic records in entirely new dimensions” to NYC for three nights at Knockdown Center on March 29, 30 & 31.

Depacio “delivers nearly 50,000 watts of power through 7 stacks of customized McIntosh amplifiers each standing 11 feet tall” and rarely happens outside of festival environments (like Panorama last year) due to the prohibitive cost of shipping for the seven speaker sets which each weigh over 30 tons.

James, David & Stephen will be behind the decks for the three daily eight-hour sessions which will go from 8 PM to 4 AM each night. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 2 at noon but you can get them early via the BrooklynVegan presale which runs Thursday, March 1 from 10 AM to 10 PM. Check back Thursday for the presale password. UPDATE: Password is HERE.

UPDATE 2: Friday March 30 and Saturday March 31 are now sold out, but tickets are still on sale for Thursday March 29’s party.

Soulwax bring their live show to Coachella this year, as well as an official Coachella side show. No NYC show though (it’s been too long!).
