DC natives Beautiful Swimmers headline this edition of Marco Weibel’s Darker than Wax party. The duo is known for their shimmering, ebullient take on house music. They’re sure to light the Sound Room on fire.
We hand the keys to Darker Than Wax, the NYC via SGP-based label, that honors a deep connection through the musical depth of diverse rhythms and culture, and its US helmsman, Marco Weibel. The DJ, curator, and radio host himself comes from a rich cultural heritage that’s reflected in his DJ sets, where he traverses a range of sounds from spiritual jazz to Thai funk to UK garage in a single session—a testament to his deep crates and skilled mixing. Joining him this evening will be DC’s Beautiful Swimmers, aka Andrew Field-Pickering (Max D) and Ari Goldman. Relentlessly pushing creative limits, their unique take on house and techno has garnered a reputation as acclaimed DJs who have graced some of the world’s most renowned venues (Panorama Bar, De School, Fabric, XOYO, Nowadays, etc) & festivals (Dekmantel, Love International, Sonar, Movement). Expect an evening of deep dives, sounds new and familiar, and a vibe that will set your mood just right.
