Already globally recognised as an underground tastemaker, resident of cutting-edge party Cartulis Music Raphael Carrau is showcasing a propulsive vision of electronic music that makes him highly respected for his essential collection of expansive club sounds.
His magnetic ability, born in the melting pot of late nights and early mornings of non-stop London nightlife, sees him deploy his arsenal of stylish and future-focussed acid sounds with total control. Constantly dynamic, constantly dramatic – his direct selections, and gifted nature for igniting and shaping the atmosphere within a room are very unique. Raphael’s ability as both a curator and top class selector over the last 8 years has helped to strengthen and drive the focus towards a whole new era of heat-seeking sounds in the UK and across the world.
Opening a new chapter based in Barcelona for 2022, he continues to steadily increase his reputation, with appearances at some of the most conceptual underground dancefloors: from Phonotheque to FOLD, Closer to BRET, Mutabor to Hoppetosse. His consistent invites are with good reason: his burning sound is the future of underground club music as we know it, and shows no sign of slowing down.
Carly Zeng is a Chinese-born DJ based in Berlin. She runs a queer-friendly party series called Dissident, and has a residency at Cocktail d’Amore. When it comes to her craft, she’s a dedicated digger, constantly seeking unearthed gems to spin in her sets, with a refreshingly versatile sound. Her recent mixes explore the spectrums of house and trance with a 90s edge, while right now she’s also delving deeper into the realms of higher bpm range of hard trance, breaks, tribal, and weaving these records into her club sets.
Next we have Arvi, who needs no introduction to the NY underground house and techno scene, founding Rendezvous in 2017 and since has showcased many “up and coming”international talents with his party series, expect Arvi to bring out some of his impressive house and trance selections.
Faver, who is no stranger to music. From New Jersey this selector and Decatur resident has been digging through the crates for the better part of a decade now, be sure to get there early to hear all the gems this space cadet has got to get the party’s vibe set right!
And finally to warm up the night will be local Corrina who is a newer DJ in the NY nightlife, but stay on the lookout for her as she will make her stamp on nightlife here in NYC in the near future.
