funkanova + christine renee pres: budino [cocktail d'amore]

Sarah Ellison of FUNKANOVA and PR’s Head Curator Christine Renee present Valentina Budino.

Budino is said to be the carrier of the Italy’s Cosmic torch. Hailing from Brescia, she’s crafted a mixing style that was forged by her mentor, Beppe Loda. It is precise, completely personal and not driven by a 4-on-the-floor mentality. At an unusually young age, she is recognized for her skill in crafting a complete dance journey thus her talents are best enjoyed when not on a stacked bill created to pack a club. Her selection, unique mixing style and rare ability to build and sustain an entire night of dancing have led some to say she is a prodigy. Her parents met at the Typhoon Club where Bebe Lodda was the resident DJ in the 80s and was practically conceived in a cosmic disco (TMI, sorry). Budino is also the Co-founder of “Dancing for Mental Health in her current residence, Berlin.

Whether it’s in 3 Chairs or on his solo records, Parrish never fails to get people on their feet.

Start time: 10pm

Dark Skin | Coconut Oil was written as an ode to the beauty in women but specifically in young dark skinned women who struggle with self love in the face of society’s misperceptions, shaped by racism and colorism, about their complexion. The song is a celebration of dark skin; a reminder to those girls of their beauty and a reminder to us all, regardless of skin color, that beauty does not belong to a singular complexion and neither does struggle with self love and feelings of acceptance. The song incorporates the rhythms of Junkanoo, a traditional cultural festival in Kamilah’s homeland The Bahamas, which, in her experience, can offer meditative, healing qualities. This performance is a reminder of the beauty we all have (outside and in), a call for us all to abandon the notion that beauty and acceptance belong to a single group of people and a celebration of (dark skinned) black girl magic. Supporting Kamilah on this intimate evening of music will be JudahThaLion.

Start time: 7pm

dope jams hallowe'en ball

Given the all-consuming unreality of 2019 thus far, the respite that is Hallowe’en could not have come sooner. By now you may know the fellas here look forward to this day with the giddy anticipation of a couple of schoolgirls—Hallowe’en is New Year’s on the Dope Jams calendar—ecstatic at the prospect of once again tossing aside any semblance of false reality, adorning the mask of absurdity affirmed, and convening the freaks for an all-out-intoxicated-free-for-all of massive hedonistic proportions that will be Dope Jams’ 11th Annual Costume Ball. Literally all of the store’s energies, hopes, aspirations and exertions are stored in reserve for this one day. On this last honest holiday, we find ourselves discarding moderation, decency, respectability and all fundamental norms of social acceptance and indulging ourselves in the bizarre ritual of dress and play, impulse and consumption, self-deprecation and social degeneration that is Hallowe’en. This yearly rite of passage into the dark months is what keeps Dope Jams going the rest of the year round, precipitating an all out explosion of joyful debauchery that reminds us that the only serious endeavor left in the violent banality of our virtual prison is to shed the psychic costume, put down the iphone and forget about your responsibilities for one measly evening.

As with each year, everything has been put in order well in advance: the club is fully decorated with typical devotion, the treats mixed just right for maximal mental deterioration, and the haunted ghosts conjured to wreak their fiendish havoc for another extravaganza of excess. Dope Jams have scoured the infernal gamut of the dance music spectrum to serve up their spookiest, most spine-tingling salutation to the dark spirits of house music yet. Costumes are strongly encouraged, you will be met with considerable disdain if you dare set your foot on sacred ground without sufficiently daft attire (Rafael’s mermanic-pornstar is a good benchmark). For the rest of you party people—downtrodden, jaded, angry, or just plain indifferent—make the choice: attend another mediocre Halloween bash at your friend’s half-assedly adorned apartment or come to Public Records on October 26, 2019 and join us for our annual Dionysian jubilee!

Start time: 10pm

christine renee pres: juan nunez [wax records]

It’s the late 90’s Los Angeles. The rave scene has been strong up and down the coast and the DJs there were laying a path in their communities that would lead to legend status.

In comes Juan Nunez, thankfully creating WAX Records, a store where everyone hung out and a young Doc Martin slung discs. Juan went on to put out a series of tunes on his label, Freestyle LTD, featuring artists such as Walter Gibbons, Maurice Fulton and the Idjut Boys. WAX closed in 2006, but Juan’s never stopped. Known for his collection of rare records and his signature mixing style blending obscure classics and unknowns with elegance so breezy you feel like you’re floating through a dream.

kingdoms 002: john roberts + queens

The second edition of Francis Harris’s Kingdoms series brings John Roberts + Queens to the Sound Room. With the release of his newest LP “Can Thought Exist Without The Body” coming this month, the record finds Roberts diving headfirst into the waters of ambient music and emerging with a free-form, unique take on extended composition.

Roberts and Mou will begin the night by Djing back to back a series of seminal ambient works.

roland p. young + l'rain

Co-presented by The Kitchen and Public Records, this double bill brings together Roland P. Young and L’Rain. A classically trained jazz clarinetist, Young has been at the vanguard of American experimental music for decades, from his early days as a radio host on the famed San Francisco radio station KSAN in the 1960s-1970s to his more recent experiments with electronic, jazz, and world genres. Young performs a set of spiritual electronic world jazz music with acoustic instrumentation guiding synthesized rhythms. Brooklyn songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist Taja Cheek performs under the mononym L’Rain. Together with her band, she plays a set of spiritual music equally rooted in RnB, jazz, noise, and pop. Organized by Matthew Lyons.

Start time: 8pm
