Doors at 6PM
Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival 2016

Fania, the iconic brand which has evolved from a legendary NYC-based music label known for launching some of the most influential Latin music stars over the past 50 years, to an innovative and digitally-driven global music, entertainment and lifestyle company, is continuing to expand their horizons with ARMADA FANIA, a new pop-up club and store which will be presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival.

ARMADA FANIA will take over the Knockdown Center, a 50,000 square foot art center/event space occupying a historic building which has been in continuous use for more than 100 years. The evening will include a stellar DJ lineup whose sounds span a variety of musical styles championed by Fania, including headliner Kenny Dope the world renown DJ/producer and Brooklyn native whose impressive career spans over 30 years and founded the influential Masters at Work (with Louie Vega); acclaimed LA DJ/producer Jose Marquez known for his infectious global dance rhythms; UPROOT ANDY, one half of the popular NYC tropical bass DJ team QUE BAJO?!; the eclectic Puerto Rican pan-pop sister DJ act Nina Sky (aka Nicole and Natalie Albino); and the leading latin boogaloo expert DJ Turmix, who helped reinvigorate the latin boogaloo scene in NYC since arriving from Barcelona in 2008.
