Rebound: A weekly party at Water Taxi Beach in Long Island City
and your semi-regular beach bunnies
Justin Carter and DJ Probus (Nublu)
Three DJs make up Negroclash: DJ Lindsey relentlessly represents, DJ Language couldn't work harder, and Duane, an Other Music store floor-osopher, is the best-kept secret in the record business. As a team, their mixing makes you want to break into applause. A brilliant blend of phuture funk and cosmic crunk propels the party here, brimming with hooks, hops, and hits. Principals like Cat Stevens, Frankie Knuckles, and Jellybean all show up, as do cuts from the Pointer Sisters and MAW, but the juiciest string comes when "Automatic" turns into Toney Lee, folding into In Deep, and winding up with Phil Asher's break-up jam "Having Your Fun." As the 75-minute arc soars, the floor goes with it.
Although his musical career started with playing the piano in grade school, a)ex O.’s real passion began several years later when he was exposed to the rave scene in Colorado. With his roots in deep soul music, it’s no surprise that his first encounters with House music created a lasting & powerful impression. Diving into his passion for the dancefloor and funky 4-to-the-floor beats, a)ex jumped behind turntables of his own and has never looked back.
Probus and Justin Carter, residents from Nublu, start off the evening with sounds from punk funk to techno.
