Savoir Adore’s remix of ‘Life in Stereo’ transports the track to a haunting, yet beautiful realm with a half time feel that eventually builds into a dizzying peak of four-on-the-floor freakout, while Nutritious adds punk-bop jazz and a housier feel coupled with sensational multi-instrumental bravado from the legendary Chuck Love.

Tip One for Slow Disco Saturdays | URB Magazine

In an announced “hiatus from the hype,” a grand finale celebrating the close of two years of Slow Disco Saturdays fun at one of NYC’s most prominent record stores “halcyon the shop” happens this Saturday, September 29th from 3pm – 8pm at 57 Pearl Street in Brooklyn in conjunction with the annual Dumbo Arts & Music Festival. Slow Disco Saturdays is one halcyon’s many in store DJ sessions.

Hosted by “queen of the retarded beat scene” Bianca Von Baum, each month’s session featured a special guest DJ laying down 3 hours of “tempo challenged choons, from dawdling cosmic disco to lazy low-slung funk and lead-footed balearic burners.” Special guests for the finale will be New York’s Citizen Kane of Disques Sinthomme, Marcos Cabral of Runaway and On The Prowl, and Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani.

Past guests have included Crazy P, Giles Smith, Kyle Hall, Alex from Tokyo, Chez Damier, Dave Allison, Nutritious, Beg to Differ, Slow Hands, DJ Osmose, Electric Avenue, Jkriv, Soho808, MANIK, Bruce Tantum and many more.  Read here for more: http://www.urb.com/2012/09/24/tip-one-for-slow-disco-saturdays/

SpinSpinNYC | Williamsburg Fashion Weekend 2012

Williamsburg Fashion Weekend is upon us again and SpinSpinNYC is proud to be an official sponsor. 

Our own, Zoe Wilder, interviewed Brittany for WFW Magazine. This will be her second showing at Williamsburg Fashion Weekend, an event she’s particularly fond of because of the emphasis on performance. “It really can accentuate the designer’s vision and purpose,” she added. Although she’s never been to Japan, her line is heavily influenced by it. She calls it Atarashii which is Japanese for new. When asked to explain the inspiration behind her aesthetic, she said, “I’ve been studying their pattern making techniques, reading Japanese authors and have become enamored by the simplicity, yet complexity of their art so it made sense to me to pay homage to the culture with that.”

Expect the unexpected.

Zoe Wilder will be modeling for the fabulous Brittany Erb on Saturday, September 15th at Windmill Studios located at 287 Kent Ave. betw. S. First and S. Second Streets.

While physical copies of the magazine will be made available at the event, you may preview the digital version here: http://williamsburgfashionweekend.com/?page_id=1186
