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.
