This Saturday 8.06 [11PM] Nikki Nair + EQUISS are behind the decks in the Sound Room. Hailing from Atlanta by way of Tennesse, Nikki Nair has become synonymous with left of center breakbeat and electro with a rhythm and intensity unmatched by few. In his debut appearance at Public Records, expect a whirlwind of broken beat psychedelic science into the late hours. Setting the stage is New York’s own EQUISS, whose singularly dizzying sets span from 2 step and footwork to jersey club and beyond, feeling appropriate for the moment. The pair answered a few questions from PR’s Amelia Holt —read below and lock in for an all-night affair of dancefloor heaters.
