Social Disco Club celebrates the early days of the Disco era.
During that time period, we saw gay liberation, woman's liberation, and racial equality. And they all met up on the dance floor. There was no judgment on the dance floor. 
There was a new technology in a sound system that shook you from the inside out, it overstimulated your senses. Just being on the dance floor gave you a physical high.
By 1980 Disco was dead, the party was over, but we are here to resurrect the message of love and unity that Disco music brought us.

This night is dedicated to classic and new Disco, Soul, and Funk from all over the world, unifying us on the dance floor once more. This is The Social Disco Club!

Breaking out in 2009 with a string of bootlegs and remixes, Ghosts Of Venice reacted quickly to the levels of online attention with the release of debut "I Learned From The Best" EP free, online. Swiftly snapped up by Strictly Rhythm this was reworked into summer club hit "Without You" featuring the esteemed Errol Reid on vocals and huge mixes from James Talk & Ridney and Siege, not to mention repeated Radio 1 plays from Pete Tong amongst others. The other side of the EP, "Her" was released through US label Solid Bump along with a hefty collection of remixes from Bit Funk and more.
Couple these with a series of remixes for the likes of The Phantoms Revenge, Miguel Migs, and the afore-mentioned James Talk & Ridney saw the run-up to summer 2011 raise his profile in a big way. Not satisfied with this though, Ghosts has taken the time to tour the US and start his own label, Stripped & Chewed, launched in Chicago as well as compile a "classics remixed" disc for the Hed Kandi Classics compilation alongside his rework of “Don’t Stop The Music” for single release.

2013 has seen the release of an EP on the Blacksoul label and the single “My Love”, a collaboration with Josh Jakq, through Italy’s La Valigetta label as well as remixes for Todd Terry, Kimbra, Lemaitre, Queen of Hearts, The Knocks & Treasure Fingers.

NCM & SWITCH PRESENT ICELANDIC TECHNO STAR 'EXOS' [трип]

to Apr 8

NCM & SWITCH PRESENT ICELANDIC TECHNO STAR 'EXOS' [трип]

Switch SLC and New City Movement are proud to bring you Icelandic techno star EXOS for his Salt Lake debut on April 7, 2018. Join us for what is sure to be a memorable night of mind, body and spiritual exaltation. Support from Matthew Fit (SLC) b2b with Chavez (NYC).

LIVE! Blawan B2B Exos - Sónar Reykjavík

EXOS // трип (Trip) // Iceland

Exos is one of the most experienced and respected techno artists from Iceland. Since 1997 Exos has released more than twenty vinyl records and three albums.

Exos is synonymous with quality as DJ and producer, he carries the purist guarantee for deep and unpolluted techno. He is known for destroying dancefloors on three decks in his appearances at Awakenings, Fabric, Output, Berghain and Tresor. He has been making techno since the 90s and more recently been touring heavily with Nina Kraviz and her label трип (voted one of the best labels of the year by RA). His productions past and present have a timeless techno feel, and Exos has collaborations and remix projects with the likes of Nina Kraviz, Dj Rush, Ben Sims, Mark Broom and Traumer.

Opening Act:

Chavez vs Matthew Fit

NYC and SLC collide as these two vinyl stalwarts present a special 3-hour set that aims to be both carefree and intentional—blurring genres of techno to create a celebration on the dance floor.

Chavez

Placing emphasis on quality first, Chavez has helped curate the Brooklyn based imprint, Nil, into a respected output for electronic music. Aside from label duties, he has made his rounds throughout New York's city vibrant underground scene. Making appearances on Boiler Room and venues that include Club Der Visionaere, Cielo, Output, Sankeys to private warehouses; playing alongside Petre Inspirescu, The Martinez Brothers, Dan Ghenacia, Willie Graff, Anthony Collins, and Anthony Parasole to name a few. His focus on quality has helped Chavez carefully select and manipulate records from all eras of dance music to create one cohesive statement. Looking to blur the lines of genre, Chavez’s energy has helped propel him to become one of NYC's respected selectors.

Matthew Fit

Matthew remains inspired by his memories of I-94, the highway connecting Detroit and Chicago where he came of age at raves and warehouse parties surrounding Kalamazoo. Matthew's sets sew the past and future together with the energy only a dyed-in-the-wool Midwesterner can bring. Through his association with New City Movement, and his work in the community, he has helped bring his new home of Salt Lake City closer to the house and techno sounds he holds dear.

Matthew loves the outdoors, almost as much as playing alongside DJs like Jason Kendig, Sian, Mark Farina, Arapu and NCM founder Jesse Walker. An avid record collector, educator, and mentor, Matthew Fit's passion for the scene and its sounds are unmatched.

ARTEMIS
(New World Presents)

Don’t sleep! This is the SLC debut of Brooklyn bad (acid) boy Mike Servito for SUPERNATURE! taking place at SWITCH on Saturday, March 10, 2018. For those who know...


MIKE SERVITO | THE BUNKER NEW YORK:

Mike Servito is from a very special yet temporary and partially lost fertile crescent of techno / house / party DJing. It was a time when raves were still a fresh idea, almost felt like a revolution, and DJs like Claude Young, D Wynn, Derrick Carter and Mike Huckaby were informing an upcoming generation. If you look directly to that inspired generation you will find the lost threads of Detroit Techno, House and beyond, you will find a group of DJs with insanely deep mixing skills, the ability to rock almost any kind of party with an improvisational approach that is so skilled it makes everything seem so well thought out that even they don't know where their set will go. But, it will take you there! In the future, this special generation of deep midwest mixers will be remembered and revered as the wizards they are, long after the trendy players have lost their luster.

Detroit never forgot about Mike Servito, his upfront dirty deep and bitchy taste has had an impact on Detroit nightlife for over a decade. From debuting in 1995 at Dat's Poorboy parties, to being a resident at blackbx and Ghostly's Untitled (along with Derek Plaslaiko, Tadd Mullinix, Matthew Dear, and Ryan Elliott), contributing to the bizarrely popular, wild and free Dorkwave, and progressing that concept into Sass (the hippest queer party in Detroit at the time), to blowing minds at Interdimensional Transmissions' No Way Back parties, Servito has made his impression. Moving to Brooklyn, Detroit's loss has been their gain, as he has found a proper home with a residency at The Bunker, and representation by Beyond Booking in North America and Odd Fantastic in Europe.

to Feb 25

NCM PRES. SASSMOUTH, ADAM STOLZ, CHOICE & MATTHEW FIT

Fact: The future is female… and so it is with Sassmouth. A rare and unique creature of the Chicago underground.

New City Movement invites you to join us as Chicago and Salt Lake collide for one night only. Vinyl Forward House and Techno like a dream from outer space. 21+, Full Bar, $10 entry. First come first swerve. In the Medium Room with visuals and styling by New City Movement.

Sassmouth // Smart Bar Residents | God Particle
The ever-elusive SASSMOUTH is one of the more fascinating selectors from Planet Chicago. Known for abundant basslines, dazzling melodies, and unparalleled orchestral ear, she is wild and free and coming to Salt Lake City. 

Her ‘god particle’ label launched in 2013, and ‘Planet Chicago’ club night a year later at the legendary ‘Smartbar’, where she continues her residency. Following the similarly paramount achievement of being enlisted as a resident for the San Francisco based ‘As You Like It’ production group in early 2013, this inimitable force continues to sensibly organize each and every appearance, covering specific genres, regions and/or habitats (deep oceans, techno, Great Lakes, house, shallow seas, electro, urban rivers, experimental, etc.) until the entire Planet has been magnificently represented by the most astonishing sounds you've ever experienced.

Adam Stolz // Open Channel | The Saturday Mess
A DJ and producer based in Chicago, Adam stays creative in many forms. His latest hip-hop project Open Channel demonstrates his range, while his DJ sets show his Midwest roots. An early mentor to Salt Lake's Matthew Fit, Adam will be sharing his love of all things house, techno on wax!

Choice // aka Nicole Jaatoul | Clan:destine 
As one of Salt Lake City's premier DJ's Nicole knows best how to play for the crowd while sharing the sounds she loves. We are thrilled to have her in the mix. 

Matthew Fit // New City Movement
Matthew Fit remains inspired by his memories of I-94, the highway connecting Detroit and Chicago where he came of age at raves and warehouse parties surrounding Kalamazoo. Matthew's sets sew the past and future together with the energy only a dyed-in-the-wool Midwesterner can bring.

DEEP 4 LIFE FT. AUSTEN VAN DER BLEEK (OPEN HOUSE CONSPIRACY | ST. PETERSBURG, FL)

Deep 4 Life is back at Tinwell Saturday, January 6 with AUSTEN VAN DER BLEEK (Open House Conspiracy | St. Petersburg, FL). Austen is up-and-coming in the scene on the east coast and King Britt has even called him “Too young to be this deep!”

Share this event >

Bio: Austen van der Bleek is a US DJ gaining recognition for his hard-to-pin, but distinctive style. His understanding of music and demeanor behind the decks is often described as well beyond his years.

Austen van der Bleek is helping usher in a tried and true American underground dance music renaissance in Florida. The sound he’s developed, through both his sets and in the works productions, has impressed legends the likes of King Britt, Roy Davis Jr., and Mystic Bill — Britt even dubbing him “too young to be this deep.” As the driving force behind Open House Conspiracy, Van der Bleek is responsible for bringing guests to Central Florida such as the aforementioned, as well as Kai Alce, Charles Webster, Rick Wade, Mike Huckaby, and more, while also working with and earning the respect of the city's veteran exports and originals like Michael Zucker, Sleazy McQueen, Q-Burns Abstract Message, and Manny Cuevas. He’s been sought as support for other bills featuring Project Pablo, Gene Hunt, and Tony Touch as well as more commercial figures like Chris Lake and Sasha. Whether he’s selecting for carefully curated bars and clubs or underground basements and renegade sound systems, festivals like Suwannee Hulaween or art gallery warehouses in Tucson and Orlando, open-air patios and rooftops or craft beer gardens across the state, Austen van der Bleek is one of the most versatile DJs his age. He is currently based out of St. Pete. 2017 has seen him play quite a few first-time destinations for the young artist like Miami, Cartagena, Detroit, Denver, and Atlanta.

JASON KENDIG:
Inspired by the electronic music emanating from Detroit's airwaves while coming of age, Jason Kendig has been pursuing the dance music pulse for over two decades. From his first residency at Detroit's Motor Lounge in the late 90s to his current role as an integral member of the esteemed Honey Soundsystem–a queer collective of musicians, artists and djs known for elevating nightlife in San Francisco and beyond–Jason never fails to make others move through his ability to reference dance music's past yet keeping an ear to the future.

"Kendig's own mixes have a deep, wintry atmosphere, sparkling with subtle details, ambient risks, and the refinement that comes from years of just listening to techno. He also has the ability to reinvest campy disco or house classics with the fervent emotions that informed them in the first place, bringing on the shivers with, say, a familiar acid-derived cymbal hit.” – Marke Bieschke / XLR8R

"Kendig is the kind of DJ who makes the technicalities of mixing vinyl seem effortless. He picks his tracks quickly, he holds his blends for a long time, and he has this ability to ratchet up the intensity of his playing in a way that's very different from other local DJs…” – Derek Oppermen / SF Weekly

JASON KENDIG:

Inspired by the electronic music emanating from Detroit's airwaves while coming of age, Jason Kendig has been pursuing the dance music pulse for over two decades. From his first residency at Detroit's Motor Lounge in the late 90s to his current role as an integral member of the esteemed Honey Soundsystem–a queer collective of musicians, artists and djs known for elevating nightlife in San Francisco and beyond–Jason never fails to make others move through his ability to reference dance music's past yet keeping an ear to the future.

 

"Kendig's own mixes have a deep, wintry atmosphere, sparkling with subtle details, ambient risks, and the refinement that comes from years of just listening to techno. He also has the ability to reinvest campy disco or house classics with the fervent emotions that informed them in the first place, bringing on the shivers with, say, a familiar acid-derived cymbal hit.” – Marke Bieschke / XLR8R

 

"Kendig is the kind of DJ who makes the technicalities of mixing vinyl seem effortless. He picks his tracks quickly, he holds his blends for a long time, and he has this ability to ratchet up the intensity of his playing in a way that's very different from other local DJs…” – Derek Oppermen / SF Weekly

About:  Bristol-based house connoisseur Andy Compton has released over 31 albums and over 135 EPs (either under his own name or as part of his legendary group The Rurals, COMPTON or L.A.M.P) on his essential Peng label and imprints like Ralf GUM’s GOGO Music, Chicago’s LARGE Music, Seasons, Viva, Hed Kandi and many others.

Output from Peng and The Rurals has been the focus of four South Africa-specific collections on Sony's House Afrika: 2002’s ‘Sunday Sessions 1’, 2005’s ‘Sunday Sessions 2’, 2010’s 4-CD set ‘House Afrika Grooves’. 2011’s ‘Kholofelo Remixed’, features a lustrous lineup of top-notch remixes of his material, no less than eight of which come from South African producers. And, the “Experience Peng” triple pack CD is now available on Universal. Also, watch out for his newest solo album "Ubuntu" which has hit the streets.

South Africa has embraced Andy's deep house sounds, and because of his popularity over there, and albums released via EMI, SONY, WEA, and now Universal, he has done 20 South African tours in the past 5 years.

Since discovering house music in the early ‘90s Compton has released a dazzling array of music and worked with an army of artists (from Motown legends to budding underground names like Detroit's Pirahnahead). He’s been featured on the cover of the seminal DJ Magazine and had his music used in TV show Six Feet Under, while tunes like “Sweeter Sounds” have become bona fide anthems at spots like NY’s Shelter. He has worked with top class vocalists Celestine, Marie Tweek, Diviniti, Kafele, Rowan, Ladybird, Sabrina Chyld and many others!

Compton's Dj skills have turned heads and twisted bodies worldwide, with his thumping brew of electronic beats swathed in coolly-crafted melodies, with Peng becoming one of the premiere labels on the planet, garnering support from house big-hitters like Louie Vega, Larry Heard, Mark Farina and Osunlade (to name a few).

All this has solidified Compton’s reputation as one of the most respected house music players on the planet.

Sappho is fresh from playing at almost every Pride event on the West Coast (Vancouver, Seattle, Portland, and LA this year) as well as Boston's Together festival and is no stranger to consistently helping Portland or Seattle get down at one of her monthly events, (she has a few). If you are looking for a standard disco set, you are looking at the wrong DJ because she does it in all forms and even to outer space with her deep digging and cosmic flare for tracks.

ryan crosson

Ryan Crosson makes house and techno inspired by the historical precedent set in his native city of Detroit and his adopted hometown of Berlin. His musical output is shaped by pioneering artists like Richie Hawtin, Kevin Saunderson and Moodymann in the US, in addition to European heavyweights like Pantytec, Ricardo Villalobos, and Thomas Brinkmann. Situated loosely between these two defining poles, alongside his partners in Visionquest: Shaun Reeves, Seth Troxler and Lee Curtiss, Ryan delivers a obsessive attention to the constant progression of his sound and embodies a ceaseless energy that carries itself from the studio directly into his live set and DJ performances. Whether it’s solo in the studio or as a guiding hand in the Visionquest label and DJ/production partnership, Ryan consistently chooses to steer away from the predictable circuit of so-called “underground” club hits, instead favouring a process of constant renewal, returning both to early influential material and to emerging sounds that depart from well-trodden trends. As a key member of Visionquest, Ryan is responsible for much of the concepting and day to day running of what has rapidly become one of dance music’s most cherished new labels. Between them, Ryan and his partners in Visionquest have honed a whole new landscape of lush, organic techno and more esoteric leftfield electronica, gambling against the predicable to introduce emerging talent like Tale Of Us, Maceo Plex, Footprinz, Laura Jones and Mathew Burton to the record buying public. Their efforts were rewarded when their label was voted number seven in Resident Advisor’s 2011 label poll, no mean feat given that it’s back catalogue has only recently hit double digits.

In the studio, Ryan’s production and sampling practices depart from the world of electronic music by accessing histories of sound, referencing musique concrete, 1970's funk, and East African jazz. This is best demonstrated by the evolution of his sound from minimal hits like ‘Gotham Road’ and ‘Hopskotch’, through to the organic underground house strains of his ‘Visionquest’ remixes of Kiki’s ‘Good Voodoo’ and more recently via his Visionquest remixes of David Lynch’s ‘Pinky’s Dream’ and Guy Gerber and P Diddy’s forthcoming ‘Eleven Eleven’ project. In addition to dancefloor bombs like ‘You’ve Got Me’ EP on Supplement Facts he’s also capable of conjuring up the haunting cosmic beauty of his recent ‘Birds & Souls’ project on Spectral Sound alongside the genre-busting sonic experiments that make up his recent DRM album collaboration with Cesar Merveille released at the start of the year on Visionquest. 

In the past Ryan has released tracks on diverse and groundbreaking labels like m-nus, Telegraph, Trapez, and Wagon Repair and more recently Soma, Spectral Sound and Supplemental Facts. From the outset Ryan immediately gave himself over to a life of touring and performance that keeps a steady focus on both the avant-garde aesthetics and deeply emotional bonds of dance music subculture. Ryan’s back-to-back live sets with Lee Curtiss, at the sold out Visionquest showcase at fabric last year and at Movement in Detroit, stole both these shows boding well for 2012 which will see him repeat his live show at some of the world’s most famous clubs and festivals alongside a packed schedule of DJ gigs, both solo and as part of Visionquest, including his much anticipated new residency at Circo Loco at DC10 this summer.

Green Velvet at Metro Music Hall with Nate Lowpass & Jesse Walker

LNE & Nightfreq Present

GREEN VELVET
with support by Latmun, Nate Lowpass & Jesse Walker

TICKETS >

About Green Velvet:  For an international audience reawakening to the influence of Chicago house during the 1990s, Curtis A. Jones acted as quite a renaissance leader. Besides donning his straight ahead house guise Cajmere and a flamboyant, neon-haired acid-house alter-ego named Green Velvet for several of the most memorable underground house tracks of the decade (including "Preacher Man," "Answering Machine" "Brighter Days" and "Flash"), Jones helmed the two most respected labels in the new school of Chicago house, Cajual and Relief. Though artist-owned labels had become the norm in Detroit, Chicago occurrences were frustratingly rare, despite the fact that the two major house imprints of the 1980s, Trax and DJ International, had continually bilked their artists out of money. Cajmere went a long way towards rectifying that situation, releasing records by a diverse cast of producers old and new: DJ Sneak, Glenn Underground, Paul Johnson, Gemini, Tim Harper and Boo Williams, among others.

The Chicago native began clubbing and buying records while studying at the University of Illinois. He later graduated with a degree in chemical engineering (and even attended several years of grad school at UC-Berkeley), but then returned to his hometown in 1991 with a drive to begin recording and DJing around the area. His first track "Coffee Pot (It's Time for the Percolator)" was released in 1992 as Cajmere on Clubhouse Records. That same year, Cajmere worked on production for "Get With U" by Lidell Townsell, then hooked up with another Chicago vocalist, Dajae. After the pair recorded a breakout single named "Brighter Days," Cajmere decided to form his own Cajual Records to release it. "Brighter Days" ascended to the number two position on the dance charts and became an international smash; it was the perfect remedy to Chicago's quickly deteriorating fortunes, a track which looked back to the '80s boom years but updated the sound with heavier beats, low-end synth and up-to-date programming. 

Subsequent Dajae/Cajual collaborations like "U Got Me Up" and "Day by Day" followed, and Cajmere eventually set up his Relief label in 1994. After deciding that the house scene needed a bit more showmanship, he created the alias Green Velvet for live gigs and DJ events. A kind of digital-age Bootsy Collins with impeccable fashion sense, Green Velvet hit the club charts with a trio of anthems from 1995 to 1997: "Flash," "The Stalker" and "Answering Machine." While no full-length appeared from either Cajmere or Green Velvet during those years, Cajual/Relief compilations like The Many Shades of Cajual, A Taste of Cajual and Relief: The Future Sound of Chicago collected all of his best productions.
