    Mixed by Crazy Larry & Taimur Agha

    Crazy Larry

    Crazy Larry is a young and fearless talent with an insatiable craving for old and new sounds. He fell in love with dance music in 2000, being inspired in his love of wax by Denver’s famed record store Casa Del Sol, where he would eventually be employed. Transplanted to NYC two years ago, Larry brought with him a well deserved rep based on his infamous underground parties, Udder Madness and, in cahoots with Taimur & Co., Cheap Sunglasses. He also brought a fierce yet fun live set that incorporates vintage drum machines, live home made plug-ins, and even the Nintendo Wii. Missing his record slinging days though, Larry recently joined Taimur Agha and Shadi Magallaa on team halcyon. In 2011 look out for Time to Get ILL, the label born from his shindgs of the same name.

    Mixed by Ali Coleman & Nutritious @ Vinylmnia Popup Records in Zakka

    Who said Vinylmania is dead?

    “VINYLMANIA STILL ALIVE”

    Owner Charlie Grappone opened the Vinylmania’s doors in 1978. He opened the store with a sparse selection of Rock records, but after crowds from the Paradise Garage started showing up, he realized his market was with the house heads. Vinylmania quickly became the goto spot for house in NYC, eventually spawning a record label under the same name, and it’s legacy began. Sadly Vinylmania closed its doors in 2007 after almost 3 decades of business. Charlie has since moved his inventory into Downtown 161, a record distributor in Lower Manhattan, where he opens one day a week for a select group of shoppers.

    DailySession and Charlie Grappone are going to revive the life and legacy of New York’s premiere House record store — Vinylmania. The doors may have closed in 2007, but Charlie’s love for records still lives on. DailySession will open the Vinylmania pop-up shop in Zakka. So all you people who thought the record store ended when the lights went out, come into Zakka to feel the beat again.

    Taimur & Fahad
    In humble deference to the top flight touring talent they regularly bring to NYC, the dynamic duo behind BLK|Market Membership are too often relegated to opening duties at their own parties, but make no mistake, these guys are a downright wicked pair of DJs in their own right. With the holidays approaching and everyone returning home to appreciate their families, we thought it was overdue to have a family night of our own at The Bandwagon so f@#k everyone else. We’re taking a ride with our own for this one, son.

  • SESSION 807: SLOW DISCO SATURDAYS 12.04.10

    Mixed by Matthew Kyle, Soho808 & Crystamafia

    Matthew Kyle

    Matthew Kyle (M.K.) loves whiskey, cats and disco – just our kind of guy. The New York-based DJ turned producer only started dabbling in music-making eight months ago and he’s already all the buzz with two hot releases on Berlin’s vinyl-only disco edit imprint, Dikso under his former monikers NoRequests and byDesign. Although still a ripe talent, Kyle has already carved out a trademark style that straddles between head-bobbing boogie, nusoul and downbeat disco. The Dikso star gets crafty with his edits and reworks by splicing up and pitching down old gems and classics by Al Green, the Bee Gees, Chaka Khan, Biggie and more timeless artits, sometimes even overlapping their tunes into one midtempo groover. Come early to hear M.K. warm up the afternoon with some super slow disco soul…

    Soho808

    Soho808 is Nathaniel Jay and Dave Robertson, two friends who met randomly at a dirty afterhours boat party and realized they shared an affinity for house music that runs high on quality and low on the BPM. They quickly took to Robertson’s Soho studio to begin making music of their own, turning out deep, slow tracks such as their first release “From New York with Love” (out now on Stupendous Music), their own remix of Soul II Soul’s 90s classic, “Back to Life”, with more tracks and other projects in the pipeline. Both DJs on their own in the past; their DJ sets together reflect the music they make; pitched down party music with soul.
