Remix | Sean Turk Brings The Heat With His “Think” Remix

Posted by on November 16, 2016

TV Noise and Jessame’s “Think” has been FNT favorite. We loved it instantly when we heard it on The Magicians’ “Magic Tape” series a few months ago. Released on Spinnin’ Records, “Think” is one of those feel good disco tunes that you play 50 times in a row, and still aren’t tired of. Sean Turk seems to love it too, and is back with the signature bedroom bass, putting his spin on the massive pop – disco banger.

‘Loser Like You’ is the latest single from Brooklyn indie-dance crew argonaut&wasp, and it’s also just the first taste of their upcoming debut EP, ‘Ha! Fiction’. Argonaut&wasp have crafted their own unique indie-dance blend with elements of disco, dance and a whole lot of funk. This song represents the struggle between the underdog and the bully, and it shows through the course of the track. From the artists themselves: “This song was written late at night, in a state of utter confusion, our minds were cluttered with frustration – an internal bully and an internal underdog, how can we express this feeling of internal conflict but to have these two characters, these two iconic figures come to life through a narrative.” Featuring funky guitars, groovy basslines, and pulsating drums – ‘Loser Like You’ is a must listen. Check it out now and be sure to support the artists!

Events | Paradise Garage Artist Spotlight: Joey Llanos and David DePino

Posted by on December 17, 2015

This weekend, Southern California dance music fans will have the unique opportunity to experience a piece of dance music history firsthand, as the iconic Paradise Garage nightclub is making its triumphant return at the Hollywood Palladium. The legendary, New York City nightclub ran from the late 1970s to the late 1980s, and managed to have a tremendous impact on today’s nightclub and dance music culture before it closed its doors.

When Paradise Garage opened its doors in 1977, the club was inspired by David Mancuso’s parties at The Loft, which served no alcohol, food, or drink, and was closed to the public. These foundational ethos led to Paradise Garage pioneering major aspects of modern-day nightlife culture, in particular, a renewed emphasis on dancing, rather than socializing, and placing the DJ at the center of attention. During Paradise Garage’s decade-long run, resident DJ, Larry Levan, popularized the club by championing a new genre, “garage,” which was comprised of house, disco, and techno that you would hear at Paradise Garage. Levan held weekly parties on Saturday called Saturday Mass, and many modern day music luminaries, like Frankie Knuckles, Louie Vega, and Madonna, all point to Paradise Garage as a major influence in their lives.

Joey Llanos & David DePino Paradise Garage Mix by A Night In Paradise on Mixcloud

This weekend, attendees will have the opportunity to experience the magical vibes of the original nightclub, thanks to the headliners, Joey Llanos and David DePino, who were both around and heavily involved with the original nightclub. In fact, DePino was actually the person responsible for finding the space that the original nightclub occupied, which he revealed in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2014. Llanos, on the other hand, was an electrician by trade who was brought on at Paradise Garage as a bouncer, and learned the art of house and techno from paying attention to Levan, one of the best in the business.

Since the doors of Paradise Garage closed in 1987, Llanos and DePino have been traveling around the world spreading the good vibes and great music that defined Paradise Garage, and this weekend will be no different. There’s no doubt that with these two legends on the decks, the Palladium will be rocking wall to wall with some of the best house, disco, and techno from the last four decades.

You can still get limited tickets to Paradise Garage here.

Paradise Garage served as a beacon of the underground house music scene during the 70’s and 80’s. The doors to the iconic nightclub officially closed in 1987, almost 30 years ago, but its legacy lives on and remains relevant, even to this day. On December 19, Los Angeles will get a taste of the legendary club at their revival event, A Night At The Paradise Garage. The party will feature headlining sets from two of Paradise Garage’s finest, Joey Llanos and David DePino, who will be spinning an array of classic house and disco jams, while Kenny Summit and special guests will be on support duty to round it out. In addition to bringing the legendary energy of the club to a new city, the event also serves as a fundraiser for GMHC, an organization which fights the AIDS epidemic and uplift the lives of those affected. All of this combined leads up to Paradise Garage: Inspirations, a double vinyl release from Good For You Records featuring tracks some of the most legendary house/disco producers like Frankie Knuckles and more.

If you’re a house and/or disco fan, this event is simply a must. Buy tickets to A Night At Paradise Garage HERE. If you need further convincing, enjoy the mix and video below!
