Join us for the first YYY experience.
Since we first heard of him in 2001, internationally renowned French DJ and producer Ivan Smagghe has been one of our all-time favorites. Standing always ahead of the trends and possessing unflinching musical integrity Smagghe stands with the DJ elite, known for entrancing sets of unmatched vibes.
Initially going by the moniker Ivan Rough Trade, because of his day job working in the Parisian outlet of the record store, he went on to inspire the likes of Justice and release seminal compilations, like 2004's 'Death Disco' and his brilliant Fabric 23 mix, while DJing at quasi-religious residencies around the world at Fabric, Robert Johnson, Pulp, Bugged Out, & Mondo.
His genre defying/defining production work originally in Blackstrobe and now in It’s A Fine Line led the way to him remixing everyone from the XX to Tiga to Superpitcher. All this has connected him to and garnered the praise of (amongst others) James Murphy, Trevor Jackson, Ata, Optimo and Andrew Weatherall. This is a special NYC appearance you won't want to miss.
Every artist claims to defy categorization but for Jokers Of The Scene, it's not a boast - it's a lifestyle. For the past few years, they have ranked amongst the brightest, weirdest lights of the current dance music renaissance. Between their original releases on Throne of Blood or Fool's Gold and their enviably deep remixography, the duo have passed on a "signature sound" to craft an unpredictable approach that's as cerebral as it is speaker-decimating. As some of our oldest friends, we are proud to have them play for you.
To open the night, memetic provocateur and subcultural polymath Lil Internet brings a special set of acid and oldskool Ibiza rave to enter the zone.
All fellow crusaders in the fight to prove that electronic music can be so much more than a one dimensional soundtrack for a night on the lash.
