Sublimate is prepared to properly kick off our 2016 calendar on Friday, February 19th with a notable live set by the re-emerging Japanese producer: Soichi Terada. Soichi has been experiencing a renaissance following the success of Rush Hour Recordings exceptional compilation Sounds From Far East. His music career dates back to the late 80s with distinguished work as a videogame composer. Soichi’s vast catalog of richly melodic and emotionally vibrant house music on Far East Recordings resonates strongly with modern deep house. Indeed, the charismatic Soichi Terada is something of a living-legend-rediscovered and we cannot wait to host him for a historic New York debut.
New York’s house and disco evangelist Eli Escobar has been a familiar face on the city’s scene for the last two decades. Whether tearing it up at clubs across the capital (and beyond) or throwing down super-charged disco bombs on labels like Nervous and Strictly Rhythm, Escobar rarely steps out of his four-four beat. As one third of the Tiki Disco parties in Bushwick, as well as running his own Night People label, Escobar has been putting his own twist on the city’s house and disco soundtrack, joining the dots between yesterday’s golden era classics and today’s club anthems.
Max McFerren has been making waves in the local scene for some time now. As a Bossa Nova resident, some exceptional releases on labels like 1080p, and a European tour, eyes are on this emerging artist. Max promises to deliver a quirky and thoughtful set that’s guaranteed to make us dance the night away.
Sublimate residents Turtle Bugg, Faso, and Sagotsky round out the bill. Don’t forget to RSVP to [email protected] for location details. As always we will feature an affordable bar and killer soundsystem by SubBass.
