Loco Dice

Loco Dice
with support from William Djoko

DJ, producer and Desolat record label co-founder Loco Dice is one of electronic music’s most enduring and respected artists. He’s always shown an uncanny ability to read the crowd and take them in an unexpected direction, as seen at his era-defining residencies at the infamous Tribehouse in Germany, as well as the iconic super clubs in Ibiza from Circoloco at DC-10, Used & Abused at Ushuaïa to the Amnesia terrace. His countless appearances at internationally renowned venues and festivals around the globe have cemented that legacy.

Loco Dice merges perspectives in his delicate sense for sounds and reflective atmospheres, underpinned with solid, physical grooves. You can call it techno if you want, or house, but don’t try to reduce it any further – Dice is most interested in the uncharted territory between genres, the elements that link everything together. Dice’s own productions are meticulously planned, with a directorial, cinematic outlook, which permeates Dice’s everyday life, and not just from the escapades and scrapes that he has sometimes found himself living out in real life.

At the end of the day, Dice sees everything running in loops and it’s his job to trace a line to sketch out the next scenes. Even if life tends to be unpredictable, a little chancy, the next move doesn’t have to be a gamble. In fact, Loco Dice shows via his compositions and endeavors that it can be very well planned. Listen to his music, imagine the cinematic accompaniments, and you’ll understand how something carefully constructed can begin with a flight of fancy, or a roll of the dice.

Halloween Haunted Hop 2019

By |

Celebrate another Night Of The Vampire at the 14th edition of the world’s best Halloween party! Mark your calendars! Thursday, October 31 at the 14th edition of Jonathan Toubin / New York Night Train Haunted Hop Halloween Spooktacular at Knockdown Center!

This NYC Halloween tradition this year will feature live performances by an unlikely combination of rock’n’roll legends:

– THE MAKE-UP (Washington, DC) Thee explosive sound verite is back and better than ever! Ian Svenonius, James Canty, Michelle Mae, and Mark Cisneros! Together again for a rare appearance! This is gospel ye ye legends’ first NYC gig since 2000 revelers had their minds blown at South Street Seaport more than two years ago! They live by night!

– QUINTRON & MISS PUSSYCAT (New Orleans, LA) This world-famous duo remains one of the most consistently wild and unique live experiences in contemporary music/art! Featuring Drum Buddy/Weather Warlock inventor/Hammond B-3 wiz Quintron and the puppeteer/fine artiste who brought her art form back into rock’n’roll counterculture! Expect both the puppet show and a wild dance party set!

– PROTEX (Belfast, Ireland) Maybe the best 1970s punk band on the live circuit at this point? The good vibrations of Protex go far beyond their canonical 1978 smash “Don’t Ring Me Up” and you will hear everything from o.g. essentials and to their current killer dillers! A band we don’t see every day and definitely not to be missed!

– THREE BRAINED ROBOT (New Orleans, LA) The main stage entertainment kicks off with the NYC debut of one of the Crescent City’s most compelling live experiences, the multi-media/performance/music/madness of this North Carolina transplant that’s taken the Big Easy by storm! First-ever NYC appearance!

Deep & Sexy

By |

Alex Cruz is back where we want him most, outdoor on a sunny New York day together with some of his favorite live musicians and DJ friends. After having played the Output roof and The William Vale roof, home of the new Deep & Sexy open air event will be at Knockdown Center. The open air space at this venue is known for its century old characteristic structures and fits perfectly for the Deep & Sexy sunny vibes of Alex and the other musical talents alongside him.

With Katya on vocals, Caleigh on her cello and Caleb on percussion we can’t wait to hear what they have in mind for us. Musical pioneer Newman who is known for his dreamy and melodic deep house and therefore was chosen by Lee Burridge for joining his All Day I Dream movement, will be one of the two other DJs this summer day. Arturo Chi’en will welcome everyone with his soulful and emotional tunes as the opening DJ.

As all previous Deep & Sexy events sold out be aware to grab your tickets now!

See you Saturday the 20th of July 2019
