    NYC’s Plan B Recordings is teaming up with the Algo Rhythm crew to bring you a night of seriously deep dance floor business. Merging Frequencies is an effort to bring together two distinct sensibilities of the local electronic underground for a post-summer celebration.

    The uptown label Plan B has slowly materialized over the past 4 years into a purveyor of some of the most dense, heavyweight dance floor sounds on the planet—sounds that have crept into many a record bag as a result. Label head and seasoned house vet DJ Spider has cultivated a sound that pulverizes the past and welds the bits into bass heavy tracks with a jagged industrial edge. His most recent offerings—a pair of collaborations with Chicago’s own Hakim Murphy—show that dark sound refracted into subterranean sci-fi meditations and more upbeat grooving dance floor burners. Spider will be on hand that evening to demonstrate why so many are now paying attention to what he’s spent years building. Plan B label co-head Dakini 9, aka Lola, will also be in attendance to show her side of the Plan B sound—the more meditative and melodic strains. Her discography may be slim, but she brings 15 years of experience behind the decks so expect some deep atmospheric funk delivered via wax—as it should be.

    Algo Rhythm organizers JM De Frias of Sequencias and A. Arias will be returning with their bloated cache of black plastic wonderments—and they’re not afraid to use them. You’ve been to their parties, yes? Marcellus Pittman? Sex Tags Mania? DVS1? WT Records? JTC? They have hosted and held their own against them all. So do come early, stay late and get ready for a truly diverse night of some of the finest jams on offer. Also come down to say good bye to Spider as he will be going on tour to Europe right after the party.

    Date / Thursday, 11 October 2012
    Time / 10:00pm – 6:00am
    Venue / National Underground / 159 East Houston St New York, NY 10002
    Cost / $10

    Ricky Powell has lived the 20 years we all wish we had. He’s known the people we only get to see in the movies or read about in books. Our imaginations are his reality. From Cindy Crawford in the bathroom to Andy Warhol on the streets of Brooklyn, the born and bred New Yorker captures lives lived and lost.

    Quitting his job at the Frozen Lemonade stall back in 1985, the iconic hip-hop/street photographer took his Minolta AF down a path of immeasurable proportions where celebrity and downright debauchery make him wonder today how he made it out alive.

    Dubbed the ‘fourth member of the Beastie Boys’, Powell became their unofficial photographer during the late ’80s and early ’90s. He quickly gained notoriety for his uncanny ability to be in the right place at the right time and for the photos that followed shortly thereafter.

    His nonchalance shouldn’t be confused with irreverence but with his Jersey drawl, his ‘home-boy’ slouch and his womanising ways, he certainly isn’t a bashful fella.

    Jasmine Phull takes a seat on the balcony of The Cullen hotel to talk about the ‘seven hustles’ with Ricky Powell – the self-proclaimed ‘Lazy Hustler’.

    Jasmine: What’s that?
    Ricky: That’s a transistor radio, baby. It’s my lifeline.

    J: Do you listen to a specific radio station?
    R: I just flip it around. Wherever I go I have a transistor. I need a soundtrack wherever I go.

    J: It’s very ’70s. So this won’t be too much of integration. In fact, I think you may just come out of this alive.
    R: You can ask me whatever you want.

    J: Ok. Let’s talk about the influence of music. During the late ’80s and ’90s you were really ingrained in the music culture and your photos only highlight that. Describe the impact that the ‘evolution’ of the music industry has had on you and your work over the past 15 years?
    R: To me, contemporary music just blows. Culture has just gotten toy. Generally speaking. You gotta look for the good stuff. The shit that’s force-fed from the media is weak. Terrible.

    J: So has the focus of your work changed?
    R: Yea. I don’t go out to clubs anymore. A lot of cornballs have replaced a lot of cool people. I kinda feel resentful about that. Not just cause they’re new people but cause they got a wack sense of self-entitlement. They have no substance. The neighbourhood that I live in, Greenwich Village, is full of that. A lot of the original people are gone and the people that have replaced them are ‘new jacks’ who think they’re cool because of the clothes they’re wearing.  [Read More]
