It’s been over two years since the last Planetary Party – a monthly live band + DJ series featuring party music from everywhere that held its residency at New City Brewery in Easthampton. The wait is over! We’re reviving the series across the river because The Drake is the perfect room for this hip-shaking situation. For this ceremonious return to boogie, our friend DJ Nickodemus is coming up special to throw down with us, along with Wonderwheel labelmate Gabriele Poso who is here in the US from Italy for his DEBUT TOUR.
Nickodemus, essential NYC DJ and producer of the Wonderwheel label, is like an encyclopedia of planetary parties. He can connect the dots between twenty or thirty genres in a single set, molding a synergetic dance experience that gets everybody moving. Over twenty years ago he founded Turntables on the Hudson in NYC, forever leaving an iconic imprint on NYC’s party scene.
Percussionist/DJ/Producer Gabriele Poso is based in Italy, but his beats are invading the world. A master of Afro-Latin rhythms, he’s been conquering European clubs with his unique fusion of organic sound with contemporary electronica. With his latest release of Tamburo Infinito on Wonderwheel, the maestro joins us for his first time in the US with Filippo Bubbico accompanying on keyboards and drums.
Long-time Planetary Partier DJ Bongohead joins the lineup with a funktastic selection of vinyl.
