NYE: DFA VS. HORSE MEAT DISCO
Cargo‘s not-so-secret love affair with Disco finds its ultimate expression in the biggest date on the calendar. The hottest New York City label, DFA, partner with London soul-mates Warm Collective to host Room 1, whilst the irreverent and always entertaining Horse Meat Disco mount a counter-attack of their own in a specially fitted second room. If you don’t dance like a lunatic tonight you better check your pulse, try as hard as you may, you will not find a better Disco line-up this NYE.
On the very rare occasions Holy Ghost! arrive on our shores, they leave behind them a trail of sweaty, blissed out people. Criminally overlooked in the UK, this dj pair know how to rock a party with their vibrant and positively uplifting brand of Rock tinged Disco. Brooklyn’s Holy Ghost! are Nicholas Millhiser and Alex Frankel. The duo was originally part of the live rap group Automato whose debut was produced by DFA’s James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy. Nicholas is also part of Juan Maclean‘s live band The Juan Maclean. Cargo is proud to have secured their talents for an extra long set this NYE.
With your hands in the air you’ll be ready for easy on the eye Jacques Renault. Spinning the vibe onto a whole new trajectory, this NYC stalwart and BFF to numerous achingly hip labels like DFA and Italians Do It Better will be throwing out an expertly put together audio tutorial of the highest calibre of classic disco and italo. Dream weaving standard.
Horse Meat Disco have become one of the undisputed power-houses in the London clubbing circuit. All it took was a dusty old box of disco records and a free-spirited attitude. Originally a simple, mixed gathering in China Town, the love has now been spread worldwide through a far-reaching series of tours and a semi-regular residency at Berlin’s Tape Club in addition to the event’s weekly bash at Eagle in Vauxhall. Tonight, HMD will be hosting a spacially fitted second room, providing their trademark soundtrack of golden age Disco nuggets. Bliss.
