NYC PARTY ALERT
SWITCH –> THURSDAY FEBRUARY 8th at CIELO
Switch (aka Dave Taylor, aka Solid Groove, aka etc…) the big boss man of Dubsided records, the father of Fidget, the sultan of Wobble, drops into Cielo for his first proper NYC headline spot on the first stop of his quick US Tour.
If you’ve been on a dancefloor in the past year, you’ve heard a Switch remix. Using destructive low-end bass, a warped, stuttering kick, and a slew of hip-hop devices; Dave’s one of the few producers pushing house music forward. He’s (officially) given the wobble to a diverse collection of artists ranging from Jaydee to P.Diddy to the Futureheads. Don’t even get me started on the bootlegs…
2007 will see Dave produce the new M.I.A album and continue his world domination of speaker junking remixes. Download:
- the Switch remix of The Black Ghosts‘ Face @ Shot Callin’.
- Partytack has one Switch did for P Diddy and Christina Aguilera.
- Robbie Williams and The Chemical Brothers at iPop.
See Switch while he’s touring:
