• SESSION 862: THE BANDWAGON 02.16.11

    Mixed by Shadi Megall & Taimur Agha


    Shadi Megallaa
    The newest Techno guru on team halcyon, Shadi was raised in Abu Dhabi where there wasn’t much electronic music culture to be had. He caught the DJ bug while studying Architecture in Lawrence, Kansas circa ’97 and was producing his own music by 2000. His first release came out on respected Danish imprint Tic Tac Toe and was followed by tunes forKalimari, Produkt Schallplatten, and Dilek amongst others. Along the way Shadi made a major contribution to the fledgling underground scene in his home town with the Boogie Box party, founded in co-horts with buddy Hassan Alwan of the Buy You Sell Me label. A full length for Igloo Pop recorded while living in Zurich stands as Shadi’s proudest musical achievement thus far, but a slew of new productions completed since he relocated to Brooklyn earlier this year are set for 2011 release, making Shadi a hot producer to watch.

    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 Taimur & Fahad


    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 755 : BLESS UP 12.16.10

    Mixed by Falty DLIncydeJordan Rothlein

    “Bless Up!”

    On the fifth day he created bass, then he took an Amen break. And so it was, that on Thursdays the high priests of low frequency would gather at the record store in Brooklyn to perform the ancient rites of the turntable… It is in this solemn spirit of praise to all that rumbles the jungle that the cult we call halcyon presents our latest, soon to be habitual ritual, Bless Up! – Thursdays from 6-9pm at halcyon the shop and archived on percussionlab.com Funky monks take note, Bless Up! is three hours of anything-but-silent devotion to the woofer ripping trinity of Drum and Bass, Dubstep and Dub Reggae. Our own pied pontiff, Liondub administers the wax sacraments alongside a rotating cast of cardinals representing NYC’s holiest DJ diocese. Visiting saints make miraculous appearances and as always, there’s no tithe at the door and plenty of alms for the poor, so you can save while being saved.

Hallucination has grown into one of the most well respected underground US labels, and now includes the imprints Hallucin8trax and Hallucination Limited. The first sister label, Hallucin8trax, specializing in the new-school version of old-school Chicago Hard House and Breaks, and striving to take off where legendary Chicago label U.C. (Under Construction) left off. Hallucination Limited was founded in 2003 by Pittsburgh-born, New York City-based DJ Three. Hallucination Limited serves as a label for Terry Francis, Phillip Charles, and Three himself, amongst others. The imprint borrows equally from vintage Acid-House, Techno and underground Electronica. As of 2010, a newly relaunched Hallucination Limited is officially a major player again with new music and mixes from Cheap & Deep, Butane, Gadi Mizrahi (Wolf & Lamb), Reverse Commuter, Sycophant Slags (Mr. C & Adultnapper), Seth Troxler & Inxec, and Peter Von Hoesen to name a few.
