HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENJAMIN K AND RACHEL TORRO!!!
The thought of bringing the best underground house, dance, techno, retro in to Monarch’s dungeon disco living room of lust, then filling it with everyone you know and love the most, is what YW’s aiming for, pulling for, and dreaming after. After what was a truly special, almost family affair, with a packed house of friends new and old with Justin Campbell, an outrageously fun night in March with Dance Spirit, and one for the books with Goldcap in February it’s hard to see how to top it all….but as always, we’ll try ;) And who better to do it with than one of the G’ist OG’s in the game, mr Jay Tripwire. And to really add the icing on the cake, a double birthday celebration with beloved Benjamin K and Rachel Torro…..playing back to back. HOT DAMN!! This is a night for you, me, him, and her. It’s about saying fuck the 9 to 5. It’s about being you and embracing the one next to you. There’s only one you, SAY YOU’RE WELCOME.
With over two decades in the game, over 200 vinyl releases, two commercial cd releases, and four full length albums - to say this guy isn’t a true House Gangsta to it’s fullest extent would be the understatement of the year. Jay Tripwire is a veteran in the ways of dance music; bringing a sound that’s fueled by the deep textured sounds of Detroit, layered and peppered with intricate rhythms. Even just by clicking on his soundcloud you’ll see official mixes for the likes of everyone from Cityfox to Balance to John Digweed’s Transitions. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this man a few times, and it’s a rollercoaster of highs and lows in all the right ways. So with that, Jay Tripwire, it’s a god damn HONOR to have you in the building. We’re all in for one hell of a treat.
With a very, very, very special opening back to back set from birthday boy and girl Benjamin K and Rachel Torro. Yes, they’ll accept presents. Yes, they’ll accept drinks. Yes, a lap dance counts.
Now come get lost, found, and lost again, we’ll see ya on the dancefloor ;) ;)
21+ --- 9:30-2:30am --- $5 til 10:30, more after.
