Curses! & Das Glow @ Element, NYC – May 11, 2007 (CRED)
People Don't Dance No More

People Don’t Dance No More (my party at Element) had a supremely glowtastic night last Friday (May 11). Das Glow destroyed, playing the newest French bangers along with bangers from Paris circa 1998. Curses! chopped and re-edited almost every track he played and hi-jacked some Chicago house into 2007. Supremely awesome. Beware the acid.

PS1

PS1’s Warm Up 2007 party series begins on June 30th, and runs until September 1st.

Each Saturday, music and performances will revolve around a theme or guest host. A sampling of themes include Punk revival, Psychedelic trends, Girl groups, and global fusion. Objektivity, Tummy Touch, Rong, DFA and other music labels have been invited to assemble six-hour programs featuring their most exhilarating artists.

This party is one of the best reasons to be in New York in the summertime. Line ups are coming soon.

Dance Parade & Remix Hotel Invades NYC This Weekend

Dance ParadeThe first annual NYC Dance Parade is this Saturday (May 19) from 1 pm down Broadway & 5th Ave to Washington Square Park. The parade seems to be a mix of Carnival’s massive troupes of dancers and the Love Parade’s freaky types. From their site:

We are celebrating everything from Break dance to Ballet with Burning Man Spirit and Love Parade Energy. We are an all volunteer run Non-Profit Organization who seek to show that dance is an expressive form of art–Our aim is to educate the public on the wonderful health and cultural benefits of dance. In doing so, we aim to support and strengthen the role of dance in our culture.

Go and support dance, dancing, and dance music. There’s a festival in Washington Square park after the parade from 4-8pm with appearances by Danny Tengalia & Kool Herc, and an afterparty at Element.

Remix HotelRemix Hotel is a travelling public event that was started by Remix Magazine to bring hands-on access to new music production technology via presentations and demonstrations from some of electronic & urban music’s brightest minds.

NYC’s edition takes place at the SAE Institute of Technology Friday May 18th – Sunday May 20th, and IT’s FREE. The full schedule of events can be found here. I’m most interested in the Producers Panel on Saturday at 5 pm with Just Blaze, Kode 9, Buckshot, Rob Swift, and Eric Kupper. Remix hotel-related parties listed at the end of this post.
