Description

Friday, December 23, 2022 Doors 10PM Advance Tickets on sale now. Born in Iraq and growing up amidst a war, Saeed turned to an old tape recorder and European radio shows to pass time. Music remained a source of inspiration for him as he learned to play drums and other instruments during his childhood. When he moved to the States, he decided that music was his passion and inevitably pursued it. As a DJ, Saeed’s performances are renowned for his technical abilities and precision. It is always a good time watching Saeed work a room and build absolutely unmatched energy. Seamlessly blending house, techno, and everything in between- the beatmaker is sure to keep the crowd moving at any club he meets. It is no surprise that Carl Cox chose Saeed as his go-to opener for all his US tour dates, including his Las Vegas residency (2014 & 2015), and the legendary closing of SPACE Ibiza (September 2016). He has also seen some of the world’s biggest stages including the likes of EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Miami, Electric Forest, Escapade Canada, Digital Dreams Canada, and the legendary BPM Festival for seven years in a row. On top of managing Younan Music, which currently has over 180 releases, the dynamic producer consistently works alongside some of the biggest dance artists in the industry including Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Kylie Minogue, Jimmy Summerville, Danny Tenaglia, Loco Dice, and more. The house music pioneer’s unique sound is fueled by percolating beats and sonic grooves. Many top DJs have dubbed his production as “timeless” and even referred to him as a “change of heart for dance music.” Saeed Younan’s vision is clear, yet simply stated: “I just want people to enjoy my music as much as I enjoy playing it for them.” When Gettoblaster formed they committed to not letting the industry lead them to where they should go, but rather lead the industry where it should be going. Their own label “We Jack Records” was formed with the intent on staying true to the warehouse vibe. The label is only 30 releases deep and has seen legends like DJ Deeon, DJ Funk, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Zombie Nation and many others. But it has also seen new schoolers like Andre Salmon, Chris Larsin (CA), Kid Enigma, Jay Kurmis, Mason, Missy, Treasure Fingers and others. These powerhouses stay well-rinsed and consistently charting with their distinct blend of addictive hooks, crisp percussion, and fat, room-shaking basslines. Gettoblaster’s enticing, dance floor heaters have caught the attention of Patrick Topping, The Martinez Brothers, Dennis Ferrer, Simone Dunmore, Solomun, Dixon, Tale of Us, Dave Clarke, Shiba San, Marco Carola, Claptone, Nathan Barato, Carlo Lio and more. Even Mixmag champions their "tough, Jackin' House sound" with a full-page article introducing them to the world in the UK print edition of the Magazine. More than just DJ’s, this set of tastemakers are leading a movement, raised by the underground and determined to keep it alive. Heavily influenced by the sounds of Chicago and Detroit’s underground scenes, they’re taking it back to the fundamentals – to what made dance music so good in the first place. Fully equipped with a never-ending flow of four-on-the-floor beats, Gettoblaster has created their own sound by taking what they’ve been influenced by for years and twisting it with modern day production and pushing the genre of jackin tracks to the future. In the Green Room we have Christina Crossin; a well-known name in the NYC underground electronic music scene. Since her integration as an artist into the scene in 2014, she has focused primarily on mastering the art of DJing, curating unique performances through her characteristic manipulation of music and meticulous track selection. She has now shifted gears entering the world of production, bringing over fifteen years of classical training with her. She has always resonated the closest with the deeper and darker elements of music, which is reflective in her bass heavy and minimal yet melodic sound. // Club Level // Saeed Younan soundcloud.com/saeedyounan saeedyounan.com/ Gettoblaster (We Jack Records| City) soundcloud.com/gettoblaster gettoblasterdj.com/ DJ SaintMark soundcloud.com/saintmark // Green Room // Christina Crossin (NYC) soundcloud.com/christinacrossin ra.co/dj/ChristinaCrossin Mina soundcloud.com/mina-music ra.co/dj/mina-us // Bar: Sensory // Shades Of Play (Witty Tunes, Cross:Fade) soundcloud.com/shadesofplaymusic Shawn Travolta (qu3house, Cross:Fade) soundcloud.com/stravolta _________________________________ ⠶⠶⠶⠶⠶ Flash Safe Space Policy ⠶⠶⠶⠶⠶ Flash stands firmly against non-consensual behavior, discrimination, harassment or harm of any kind.
