Setting sail: 8pm - 12am
The New York City electronic music scene loves the dark, frenetic nightclubs it calls home. But summer gives us a chance to experience futuristic, bass-heavy grooves in the great outdoors - or even better, on the high seas. Carried Away, a new series of nautical house and techno parties, takes its first voyages in Summer 2016 with three boat parties featuring an international roster of top-ranked DJs from as far off as South Africa, London and Tel Aviv. Tickets are on sale NOW! Afterparty details TBA.
The first boat party embarks on the New York Harbor June 25th, with some real heavy-hitters behind the wheels. Israel’s Chaim, who recently earned some mainstream attention for his production on “Angels” with P. Diddy, is a longtime collaborator of Guy Gerber’s and a member of Ellen Allien’s BPitch Control stable. Frank & Tony are the masterminds behind the Brooklyn electronic label Scissor & Thread as well as top-notch producers in their own right, revered for their unforgettable sets in Output’s Panther Room. And London’s Russ Yallop makes a stop on his world tour, hot off some keynote sets at Extrema Festival and Brighton Music Conference.
From his home base in Tel Aviv, Chaim Avital has won international acclaim for a style that blends the textures of underground house with the melodic flavors of new wave and pop music. His impeccable catalogue of singles starts with 2007’s “Cosa Nostra” b/w “My Point” on Guy Gerber’s Israeli label Supplemental Facts. Gerber, a house music legend in his own right, is known to favor Chaim’s 2013 single “Orion Skies”, incorporating it into live sets and wax mixes.
It was Berlin’s Ellen Allien who released Chaim’s debut LP Alive, featuring the fan favorite “Love Rehab”, now regarded as a cult classic. Igloo Magazine raved about the record, “"For his first take-home effort, however, Avital buffs each nook and cranny of his music to a streamlined sheen, making Alive music your mind can get lost in." Similarly, Resident Advisor appraised Chaim’s “searching, fun-loving” aesthetic as “a pretty nice one to spend time with.” Chaim is arguable the perfect selector to headline the maiden voyage of a summer boat party.
FRANK & TONY (US/FR)
A duo that has established veritable omnipresence on the New York underground scene, Francis Harris and Anthony Collins have made an indelible mark on electronic music. During the mid-aughts, Harris was beloved to the techno scene who knew him as Adultnapper, a producer sporting dark, chaotic rhythms. Meanwhile Collins, a native of France, had dropped out of school to pursue DJing and mixing full time, with residencies a number of French dancefloors. In 2011, the two of them united in Paris and decided to go in on a new imprint, Scissor & Thread, permanently relocating to Brooklyn where Output’s Panther Room would become their de facto stomping grounds.
As a production and DJ duo, Frank & Tony are known for re-edits of dancefloor classics, plus expertly crafted originals like the titular cut of their 2016 EP “Waiting Ground” ,as well as a number of collaborations with Bob Moses. Aside from their own label, their mixes and singles have been published by Fact Magazine, Resident Advisor and Japan’s Mule Musiq.
RUSS YALLOP (UK)
Equally skilled rocking dancefloors as he is with studio wizardry, Russ Yallop exploded into the house music world thanks to an original track entitled “I Can’t Wait”, which ignited the interest of legendary production idol and Crosstown Rebels label boss Damien Lazarus. The label coordinated the official release of the track, and its B-side “Rock Me” was featured in DJ Mag’s Best of British comp. He’s maintained the youthful vigor of those original releases throughout the years, up through 2016’s “Mike The Swamp”, a collaboration with wAFF. His undeniably fun aesthetic has made him a sought-after presence at festivals; recently he made stops at the Extrema Festival and on the Wunderground stage at the Brighton Music Conference. The New York stop on Yallop’s world tour will be the inaugural Carried Away boat party.
Coming up on Carried Away:
8/27: South Africa’s Culoe De Song, whose sound fuses dub with house, plus the soulful sounds of Switzerland’s Deetron, making a rare NY stop.
9/10: New York City’s own Roger Sanchez, a staple of the house music scene since the late 80s, along with remix legend Hector Romero, also a house music originator and veteran.
