Terekke comes from the depths. Fellow resident of Brooklyn, he’s been crafting hard yet subtle lo-fi house music for quite sometime now. He’s also played along side heavy hitters like Juan Atkins and Steve Summers. By night you can find him playing DJ and Live PA Sets with friends Jan Woo and everyone at the Body Actualized Center. After listening to Ron Morelli’s East Village Radio show for some time, mutual friends put him in touch with the L.I.E.S. record co. owner and a 12” white label was born. pf pf pass (Damn EP, LIES005.5) is a murky and rolling acid jam, compressed to cassette tape with down pitched vocals too boot. Be on the lookout for his new LP out soon on L.I.E.S.
Tony Naples graced the decks at our very first after hours party at The Cameo Gallery back in June; to say the least that night was one for the books. Growing up in Miami and developing a penchant for artists like DJ Laz and Power 96, Anthony has honed in on his craft and incorporated these sounds of the times. His first release on the newly founded Mister Saturday Night label is also their first. Tracks like Mad Disrespect and Tusk are built with Garage and Jersey Sound in mind; vintage sounding drum machines swing off time with paired vocal samples. Since then he’s gone on to big things like remix Four Tet’s 128 Harps on Text Records.
The latest addition to Charles Damga’s UNO Records, Aquarian has joined the likes of Jaques Greene and CFCF. “Motherisk” comes to us at a breakneck 140-BPM conjuring old electro and breakbeat hardcore. The EP has been mixed by like minded techno contemporary Gingy and really shines through in every break and tempo switch up. A NYC local as well, Aquarian’s been seen on line ups with Om Unit and Baauer as well. Stay with us into the late morning hours as he drops old skool bangers and high octane tracks.

From the funky abstract bubblings of Falty DL, Seafloor and Soul Clap, to the pure house stylings of Oliver $ and Catz n Dogs, to producers of the moment like Addison Groove, Boddika, and Sepalcure, Nooka touches on all of the various genres and sounds that make up the wide open world club music is enjoying in a post-dubstep moment.
