Description

The Red Lantern party is a Lunar Year Celebration that brings together different social, musical, artistic nightlife cultures together for a celebration of culture and festivities. In Chinese tradition, the lantern ( 燈籠 Dēnglóng) are the stars of the Lantern Festival, that illuminate a safe path home at night. The roundness of the lanterns symbolizes harmony and unity - key themes in the Red Lantern party. This event seeks strengthen the pride around the AAPI (Asian American Pacific Islander) community within NYC nightlife. Through curated displays, decorations and communication, in-conjunction with carefully selected musical artists and ambiance, this event will also bring light to the diverse and colorful culture, history and traditions of the AAPI community. Through the euphoric culture of dance music, this event will not only showcase cutting-edge sound but will also inspire a transformative experience within our Brooklyn family. Featuring Artists: Amy Jor Connie Dalton Taylor Like Mee Vivian Wang Amy Jor Growing up, Amy was first exposed into the world of music & art at 5 through dance, guitar, keyboard, and around 13 years, she began digging deeper into electronic music & going through many different phases of subgenres (house, deep house, classic house, minimal, microhouse, dub techno, melodic, electro, breakbeat, left-field, disco, neo soul, jazz funk, +++). Her style is an exploration & a combination of everything she loves x the environment x her current mood 🙁 🙂 >:) 😠 >..> 😉 :3 . Amy started interning at production & DJ school TPA Studios NYC at 15, where she dipped her toes into music production & sound design w/ Ableton & Logic. That is also where she first learned to DJ and made friends who showed her different record shops (A1, Halcyon, turntablelab NYC🥲❤️), & sparked her love for collecting & spinning records w/ friends. Shortly after, Amy went to SAE Institute NY to study recording, mixing, mastering, & post-production. Amy is now studying art & design, production, music theory, jazz keyboard improvisation, and spending her free time bothering her cats, experimenting in the kitchen, listening +++gatekeeping good records, and trying to find friends who get it. Some notable appearances include her sets opening for Tinlicker (Inoki Party), Acid Pauli Members Only NY, Modd (All Day I Dream) at House of Yes, Gabriel & Dresden at Output / Panther Room, Tara Brooks at Knockdown Center, Steve Darko at Elsewhere / Zone 1, Djuma Soundsystem & Gel Abril w/ Sullivan Room at TBA Brooklyn, & Alchemy Stage (2019)/ Air Stage (2021) at Elements Music & Arts Festival.
