Sullivan Street Shakedown: Late Night Local

Sullivan Street Shakedown: Late Night Local
NYC, Saturday 6/19/2010

DJ Nutritious and Zoe Wilder’s SpinSpinNYC is at it again with their next installment of the Sullivan Street Shakedown. Only 3 official Sullivan Street Shakedown monthlies out and they’ve already featured some amazing talent: Shakedown originators and Worship Recordings dub-house pioneers Rob Paine and Willyum, Jackin’ House don JT Donaldson, and Boston’s own live electronic all-stars Psylab. This month, they’re digging out some the best subterranean NYC talent and tunneling them to their West Village soiree for the Sullivan Street Shakedown’s Late Night Local. It’s amazing how much diverse nightlife occurs below ground in this city and this month’s Sullivan Street Shakedown will surface some of NYC’s tried and true “conductors.”

DJ Monchan (Toshi Moriguchi) is known mildly for his secret Nininja parties in Brooklyn and wildly for his creative managing and talent programming of Dailysession.com, an internet radio station, blog, and podcasting depot “bridging the gap between artist and audience in New York City with daily radio from the city’s underground…with weekly transmissions from A-1 Records, Breakbeat Science, Halcyon, LionDub, Vinyl Mania, Zakka, and more.” With 20 years behind the decks combined with some serious radio programming skills, Monchan’s a high-caliber DJ with a penchant for Funk-Soul music – a truly choosy chooser of electronic rhythms and rhymes.

DJ Chris Hall is a deejay’s DJ. If you know him today, you’ve probably been blessed by one of his beautiful soulful house mix CDs, or you’ve signed-on to SoundCloud to receive his constantly updated supply of deep house sets. Since the early days of our Strongest Island’s influential Caffeine rave scene, Chris Hall has been a supporting force helping to grow the old-school energies of East Coast rave culture into a refined vision of his own. His upcoming release, a remix of “From NY With Love”, proves just this with Mr. Hall partnering sounds with early Caffeine Records producer and now Stupendous Music chief (Jim) Felli to prove that New York’s house scene is not only same as it ever was but, it’s getting better every day.

As if that isn’t enough, Wilder and Nutritious have signed on drummer extraordinaire, Stephen Chopek as the night’s resident percussionist. Chopek’s not only a masterful visual artist coloring Jersey City’s flowering gallery scene with his “collages on paper and paintings on glass,” he’s also a tasteful theorist whose philosophy boasts finding “individual elements most interesting when taken out of their original context and re-interpreted through a fresh perspective.” His latest work SodaCan, a collage of both organic and electronic musical and visual expressions, began from studying drum set and classical percussion at a young age and eventually performing with William Patterson University’s percussion ensemble. Later, Chopek furthered his studies with drummer Billy Martin of Medeski Martin and Wood and famed jazz percussionist Leon Parker. As a drummer, Stephen has toured the world and recorded with Charlie Hunter, John Mayer, Marc Broussard, Jesse Malin, The Alternate Routes, Mikey Beatz, and many others. Similar to the closing signature on a finished work, Chopek’s percussion will paint the sheen on this month’s Sullivan Street Shakedown.

A Sullivan Street Shakedown wouldn’t be complete without an energetic set from DJ Nutritious and some serious dance floor work by Ms. Zoe Wilder. Add the notorious Brooklyn beatbox MC, ElaNEF, to the shuffle and you’ve got yourself a triple threat of cantankerous ceremony hype-masters. These three rocked the Resource Magazine (also, an official sponsor of this Late Night Local) Three Stage National Tour kick-off at the Meatpacking District’s Milk Studios back in March and sent thousands into a dance floor frenzy. Things got so almighty that NY’s finest and Milk security were forced to shut the party down before midnight. Thankfully, Sullivan Hall and SpinSpinNYC’s Sullivan Street Shakedown call to a higher power: the amazing love and respect of the staff, their patrons, and the welcoming warmth of the West Village locale.

Additionally, Avant Garde VJ, Mamiko Kushida, is on scene as well as Sullivan Hall’s surprisingly fine sound and lighting.

The monthly Sullivan Street Shakedown happens at Sullivan Hall, 214 Sullivan Street and is always 18+, 21 to drink. June 19th’s Late Night Local edition begins promptly after midnight and runs until 4am (even later, if there’s demand). Special $5 RSVP to: local@spinspinnyc.com

The Sullivan Street Shakedown: Five, Eight, Forty

A Celebration Of Photographer Matthew Fitzgerald’s Birthday XL

DrumLab & DJ Viz (Psylab)
Nutritious

Gregg Marcus (TrumpetLab)
People In Charge
Zoe Wilder
eBonheur
Mikey Beatz
VJ Mamiko Kushida
& More Special Guests TBA

We are throwing it down at The Sullivan Street Shakedown for one of the finest brothers we know. Matt Fitzgerald and his brilliant photography have been helping the scene (and us) grow strong for many years and in honor of his day of birth, we’re putting together an assortment of instrumentalists/deejays that will assemble to bring you hours of audio diamonds. These players are from some of the biggest, baddest stages around, and they’re combining on this night to pull out every stop, every trick in their book – every riff, scratch, slide, snap, boom, bam they’ve ever perfected will be projected at pleasing your soul, moving your body, and bringing this fine human into his next year of life. Matt and his keen eyes have helped breathe life into and move the careers of every performer you’ll see on this night, and with your presence (the best birthday present there is), together, we can turn the focus back on Matt and give him the soiree he so rightfully deserves. From live drum and bass, brass horns, records and cds, to v-drums and kaossed vox, there will be new genres of music formed on this night, and all of it will move you so, come ready to be moved…and dance.

Special photo coverage of this night will be provided by the talented, Daniela Volpi.

DrumLab:
The duo of Steve (drums) and Ed (techno wizardry) of the famous psychedelic / live electronic band Psylab. DrumLab breaks it down into the strictly twisted dub elements of Psylab’s mastery and paves new ground with what can be done with a set of e-drums and lots of SUBS.

People In Charge:
Added to the sonic mix is the collaboration of rotating People In Charge musical guests – the opportunity for producers to rock their instruments live on stage rather than behind the recording console. On this night, Mikey Beatz (drums), eBonheur (bass), and Zoe Wilder (vocals) team with DrumLab to turn the party on its head.

DJ Viz:
Or Vizzie, the techno technician of Psylab fame, rocks the 1’s and 2’s, strictly vinyl, for an exploration and elaboration of the world’s finest Dub-Step and Drum & Bass. Viz is a sub-bass gourmand, so be ready to feel it in your gut.

Will Swank:
Swank brings with him years of touring experience with The Motet and a background in subterranean Jazz that stands the test with history’s most legendary saxophone players. Will rocks a growling tenor and phrases lines like he’s painting the future in ancient poetry.

Nutritious:
Is a DJ… and he rocks the shit out of parties.

eBonheur:
is a ninja.

Zoe Wilder:
ZW has shared many a stage but, most infamous for her collaborations with Psylab and the New Deal. Possibly most remembered for her shadow dancing performance at main-stage Camp Bisco 6, Wilder’s scheming something xxx-tra provocative for Five Eight Forty so, abre los ojos.

VJ Mamiko Kushida:
Mami should need no introduction but, new to the States after rockin Japan’s biggest events for years, Mamiko’s the most bad-ass VJ here. She’s one part kunoichi, one part Foxy Brown – she’ll super-fly slice-you and you’ll thank her for it.

Update 4/27:: We’re announcing the addition of Gregg Marcus on
trumpet, enhanced by Vizzie’s custom effects software “TrumpetLab”.
