The underground world in New York was chock full of choices for New Year’s Eve — Lee Burridge and Moby, Wolf + Lamb, Soul Clap, and PillowTalk, Francois K, Pat Mahoney, or Steve Lawler and Carlo Lio (to name a few) were all in town for the big night. None of these however, garnered more of a flurry of interest and excitement than the announcement that Luciano and a trusty crew of beatmakers would be throwing a Vagabundos party on New Year’s Day. The event opened its doors at the Compound in Brooklyn at 4:30am, only 30 minutes after Dada Life and company closed out their high-powered New Year’s Eve party.
For one last show of the Governors Island season, the people of Ibiza United present the two-day Black and White Festival. Unlike events past, this festival promises a full day of music — starting at noon and going until midnight. Jamie Jones headlines day 1 ‘black,’ where he will play a four-hour extended set and be joined by Detroit techno legend Carl Craig and other artists like Derrick Carter, Butch, and more. Day 2 ‘white’ brings in former Sound Factory resident Jonathan Peters, who will be bringing back some old-school house flavor with a “Classics” set. Tickets are still available on the Clubtickets website.Posted by
