Planetarium Playlist

On November 4th, 2016, we did our third edition of Planetarium, the immersive listening experience we started back in June. We forgot to record the evening, so we decided we’d put together this playlist. Not everything was available on youtube, so we made a full tracklisting and included explanations for the things that we couldn’t add. Enjoy! [And sorry about the tracks with ads up front.]

The next Planetarium is on Friday, December 2nd. We just posted tickets. Grab ’em fast. They tend to sell out quickly.

Know It All

Most people don’t know this, but before I ever put a record on a turntable, I was a singer and songwriter. Over the past fifteen or so years, as I’ve gone down the DJing path, my singing and writing have ticked along quietly in the background, a secret to pretty much everyone.

This Friday, though, I’m releasing a song. It’s called “Know It All”. I recorded it with Cosmo D, the cellist from Archie Pelago, and Jason Lindner, the keyboardist on Blackstar, Bowie’s final album. It was mixed by Benjamin Tierney, who also worked his magic on Kamasi Washington’s The Epic.

Stereogum’s posted a nice review of the single.

I really hope you like it.

Barn Dance Deux: Anthony Naples and CZ Wang

msn_2016_nov19_a
We’re taking over the Silent Barn for four nights across November and December. If you haven’t been to Silent Barn, get excited. It’s the best. There’s a courtyard, a little indoor treehouse thing, a couple homemade video games and cheap drinks. Our sound system also sounds awesome there, and it’s all ages, like we like.

This is our second edition. Mister family member Anthony Naples will be teaming up with CZ Wang, one the coolest dudes we know and one of the musical minds behind Mood Hut. The pair will play together all evening, from beginning to end. Good news…

Get tickets here.

Saturday Night Barn Dances

msn_2016_nov-dec_aIt’s been something like eight months since we did a Saturday night party in NYC, and it’s been even longer since we had guests at a Saturday night party. So we decided to set up a run of dates at Silent Barn.

Kornél Kovács from Studio Barnhus, CZ Wang from Mood Hut, our very own Anthony Naples, and Future Times’ Beautiful Swimmers will join us for a run of four dates at the Bushwick art space. Eamon and I are going to take one night to go back to back, as we do, and otherwise, each party will feature the DJs on the bill playing together from beginning to end.

Tickets for all the dances are $20. We have no idea if these will sell out in advance, but most things we’ve done at Silent Barn have. Certainly not a bad idea to get tickets in advance.

Looking forward to seeing you down there!

Mister Halloween Night: The Om Supreme

msn_2016_halloween_784x1200
For Halloween this year, we decided (after one false start) we’d try for an antidote to the crazy political climate. We bring you…

Mister Halloween Night: The Om Supreme, an opportunity for you to don transcendant costumes and wash away all the madness.

Our home for the evening is a wood-floored, forty-foot ceilinged studio decked with billowing geometric patterns, a massive disco ball and a sweet, sweet soundsystem.

To start the evening, we’ll be playing blissed out listening records. Around 10pm we’ll transition the floor, so you can get lost in the dance.

Advance tickets are still important (only people who have tickets will find out the secret location), and costumes are strongly encouraged.

Our new take is one of complete acceptance, so wear what you’d like. If you wanna get fully immersed, though, think gurus, downward facing dogs and long flowing robes for your costume. (If you already bought a ticket to our Halloween party, absolutely nothing changes for you. Just drop us a line if you have any questions or concerns.)

The doors of the studio open at 8pm, and the vibe stays strong until 2am. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.

Ommmmmmm.

ps. We know $45 is a lot of money. We don’t take our pricing lightly. The reason for the high door fee is that production expenses for this venue are particularly high, and security and other staff prices go up for us (and most other people doing parties) on Halloween weekend.
