Virginia, Wrecked & Tad Haes @The Panther Room, 10.18.14

A very special edition of The Bunker & Wrecked is upon us this upcoming Saturday, October 18 at Output/The Panther Room, featuring many talented artists. On the main floor at Output, Clark, Ambivalent, Mike Dehnert, M. Geddes Gengras and Bryan Kasenic hold down the fort on the techno side of the party. At The Panther Room, leave it to the amazing DJ, singer, songwriter and producer Virginia to headline the decks, supported by Wrecked and OXD’s very own Tad Haes doing the opening set.

Virginia’s performances combine the usual live mixing technique with spontaneous vocals as she adds her own voice on-the-go to some of the tracks, creating a unique experience. As a singer, she’s become known for collaborations with the likes of Steffi on the 2011 hit ‘Yours,’ as well as Steve Bug, Tom Novy and more. Check out her latest mix for Bicep’s radio show and get in the mood for Saturday.

Gorgon City ft. Jennifer Hudson: ‘Go All Night’

Jennifer Hudson won the hearts of the gay community (and an Academy Award) with 2006’s ‘Dreamgirls,’ playing underdog Effie White. Her first two solo albums following the movie, Jennifer Hudson and I Remember Me, showcased her vocals in a more subdued, traditional R&B environment. Her most recent album release, JHud, has taken the singer in a a new direction with something new to add to her repertoire: dance music diva.

I’ve always felt there’s been an element to Jennifer Hudson’s talent that’s been untapped; with the smooth disco and funk-inspired sounds of her new album JHud, it feels as thought that missed potential has finally been fulfilled. Jennifer hit the studio after finishing JHud with rising star producers Gorgon City for a track for their debut album, Sirens, out this past week. The production itself is catchy, although fairly similar to the likes of Duke Dumont and Disclosure. The real star of this song is Jennifer’s voice; her vocals shine brightly on this house track, reminiscent of other great house vocalists like Martha Wash and Robert Owens. Bonus fact: this track was co-written by another rising star, Kiesza.

Le Bain Presents Occupy The Disco feat. Ramona, 10.10.14

Now that summer is officially over and everyone has returned to the Big Apple, we’re looking forward to kicking things into high gear this fall… but that doesn’t mean we’re ready to let go of summer just yet. On Friday, October 10th, we’ll be featuring one of our favorite Fire Island discoveries, Ramona Wouters, at Le Bain.

Born in Belgium, she discovered her love for house music in the ’90s, after many nights spent in the area’s finest clubs. She then popped over to the States and found herself inspired to create her own soundscapes after experiencing NY’s club scene, and her annual trip to Burning Man.

Ramona’s deep and tech house sets at Pavilion’s High Tea deck this year immediately captivated us upon first listen. Her mastery of deep house is completely in tune with our sound and we look forward to exposing her to a wider audience on Friday. We’ll also be DJing alongside Ramona for the earlier and later sets. Don’t forget to RSVP, and we’ll see you on the dance floor!
