The Sound of New York – Listening Party
Qool DJ Marv, Aoife Nic Canna & DJ Scope
Date : Thu 11 October
Venue : The Commercial
Time : 8pm
Tickets : Free, booking advised
The Listening Party kicks off an evening celebrating the Sound of New York. Aoife Nic Canna, Qool DJ Marv and Choice Cuts’ Mark ‘Scope’ Murphy gather in The Commercial’s Record Room to share the tracks that most represent New York to them. To an intimate audience, these three DJs, who share 100-years’ experience of listening to and playing tunes, will play the tracks in full and tell the stories behind their relationship with the records.
Following the Listening Party, all three DJs will step in to a DJ set which crosses their individual and shared relationship with New York club music from 1980 until present day. Expect to hear, and dance to, records which span the sound of Harlem jazz, through Mancuso’s Loft, Bronx, Brooklyn and LES hiphop, and on into MAW/Body&Soul house music.
The Listening Party is limited to an audience of 40 people. Tickets are free and allow access to the DJ Set, so booking is highly recommended.
