Plastic Plates & Justin Strauss @Cameo Gallery, 2.28.14

OXD fan favorite Plastic Plates is back in New York and we couldn’t be happier. Sydney’s Felix Bloxsom just released a new track, ‘Stay in Love,’ featuring the talented Sam Sparro to much acclaim. The man himself is headlining at the cherished Brooklyn venue, Cameo Gallery, this Friday, February 28th and we’re eager to occupy the dancefloor and give him a welcome reception!

NYC’s very own Justin Strauss is closing the evening, making him the perfect corollary to Bloxsom in this evening of disco and house music. After featuring both artists separately at Paradisco last year, it will be a real treat to hear both under the same roof.

See you on the dancefloor!

Midnight Magic & Justin Strauss @Cameo Gallery, 12.6.13

It’s time to occupy another performance by OXD’s favorite disco ensemble, Midnight Magic, on Friday 12.6 at Cameo Gallery. We are lucky to have had the chance to witness the 9-piece disco act perform at least half a dozen times since we launched Occupy The Disco, and we just can’t get enough of their fantastic music and uplifting energy.

Joining Midnight Magic will be the ever-amazing Justin Strauss, who we featured at Paradisco earlier this year. As a producer, he also acts as one half of a/jus/ted, with his latest release being ‘Stay Up Here,’ a lovely track featuring vocals by Miss Bee.

Check out Midnight Magic’s brand new album, Midnight Creepers, secure your tickets, and get ready for yet another memorable night.

Andy Butler (Hercules and Love Affair) @Cameo Gallery, 9.27.13

NY-based DJ and producer Andy Butler founded Hercules and Love Affair (HALA) in 2006 with the intent that its members would be ever-changing.  Butler envisioned enlisting a rotating cast of performers to create songs inspired by his near encyclopedic knowledge of NYC dance music.  Since it’s ambitious beginnings, HALA has created iconic tracks in the house, disco and nu disco arenas and has featured talents such as Antony Hegarty, Kim Ann Foxman, Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Nomi Ruiz (Jessica 6), and W. Andrew Raposo (Midnight Magic). In addition to his involvement in HALA, Andy has created a compilation for Berlin’s acclaimed DJ Kicks series, where he recontextualized classic disco tracks, updating them for the 21st century while keeping one foot firmly planted in nostalgia.

On September 27th we will have the treat of getting up close and personal with Butler’s musical genius when he spins a rare, live set at Brooklyn’s intimate Cameo Gallery. Butler’s penchant for soulful, inspired vocals and melancholic dance jams have always struck a chord with gay music fans, and his colorful reputation on the music scene is bound to bring us a night of surprises.

Joining Butler is NYC’s quintessential DJ and producer, Eli Escobar. Known for adding a level of subversiveness to even his most commercial sets, Escobar certainly knows how to please a crowd.

George FitzGerald @Cameo Gallery, 5.24.13

London-based producer George FitzGerald straddles the lines between house, garage and bass, masterfully marrying contrasting styles together to create a sound that is distinct to his style. The genre-defying FitzGerald built his name on the scene as a co-promoter of Man Make Music, the London party that has been showcasing a little bit of everything since its inception back in 2007. With releases on Hotflush, Aus, and his own imprint, ManMakeMusic, his productions combine both the warmer, melodic sides of house and garage with the more heated, pounding drum patterns of dubstep and techno, all with exceptional style and grace. FitzGerald’s hallmarks are evident in his measurement, his unmatched awareness of light and space and his use of searing chord lines.

FitzGerald was recently featured on BBC Radio One’s Future Stars of 2013 Essential Mix series, amongst the likes of Perseus and Jonas Rathsman, Duke Dumont, which is included above. Towards the end of the mix you can hear some of his productions that made him a well known name here at OXD such as the massive hit ‘Child,’ and his glittery remix of Jessie Ware’s ‘No To Love.’

Earlier in the evening we’ll be at Escort’s live show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. After an evening of classic and modern disco, FitzGerald’s blend of house, garage and bass will keep us dancing through the night.

Mighty Mouse @Cameo Gallery, 2.23.13

UK-based musician Mighty Mouse might be world renowed for his productions and remixes but he considers himself a DJ first and foremost, taking pride in his uncanny ability to seamlessly blend multiple genres spanning many decades. While that’s of course noteworthy, we have to admit it’s his insatiable appetite for disco that has us most excited for his upcoming New York appearance.

We were sad to hear Hurricane Sandy thwarted his visit to Le Poisson Rouge last November, but luckily the Mouse is coming to Cameo Gallery later this month. He will be joined by Fixed resident DJs JDH and Dave P, and we’re inviting the gays to come and help us Occupy the Disco and show our favorite Mouse some NYC love.

We first heard of the man with his haunting Balearic Disco remix of Beyoncé’s ‘Smash Into You,’ and since then went on to discover remixes he did of the likes of Kate Bush, Madonna, Monarchy, Moonlight Matters and more.

In addition, Mighty Mouse’s Disco Circus compilations have gained critical acclaim as they combine disco old and new, house, techno and 80’s rarities.

So let us know you’re coming by RSVP’ing on our Facebook Event Page, and don’t forget to get your tickets as the event will sell out quickly. See you there!
