Jaco Matthews has opened up a can of house and spread liberally. His No Requests EP has 4 tracks of deep, percussion heavy jumpers that are sure to make any dance floor start to shuffle. Finely crafted congas and claps keep you locked in Jaco’s groove until he says no! He is still a relatively new name to Detroit, but he has certainly wasted no time making the rounds and establishing a residency at several venues starting with TV Lounge and now at ye olde Whiskey Disco. These tracks reflect his unique, sexy style; aesthetically as well as sonically.
Early support and premieres from Dance | Discover, Past & Future, Moskalus, as well as Electronic Groove! Thanks so much!
It’s a bit of a special edition for our podcast, because our history with the wonderfully, tantalizing force of TYLR_ begins over 5 years ago at the well known Temple Bar on Cass Ave. He and his partner Steven Reaume have consistently been a positive influence in the city, creating the best parties and introducing us to the best new talents!
We have personally benefited from this, having great support from their organization of Norway Detroit when PITS was just an idea, and we had few connections. Flash forward to now, and he is poised to play his debut set at Movement Electronic Music Festival this weekend in Hart Plaza! His set runs from 2-3:30pm on Saturday, the first day of the fest ~
Check him out there and/or for his set at their intimate pre-party titled Anti-Social with Derek Plaslaiko happening on Friday night at the hush hush 😉
Tammy Lakkis is taking over the world, and we couldn’t be happier 😄 She is an exciting sound maker in Detroit with an eclectic style not dissimilar to a creepy carnival ride. 🎠 This all-vinyl mix of evil fun house grooves celebrates the coexistence of dark and light. ☯️ She will be playing an event at The High Dive in Hamtramck tomorrow night (May 9 2018) with two other great artists Marshall Applewhite and Jakob Harris! 👨👧👦
We are pleased to share this dynamic mix from a Detroit newcomer that many have had the pleasure of sharing a snack with already! 😉 Gino is one of the minds behind Snack Time Detroit, a creative and fun new happy hour event taking place every Thursday at TV Lounge. 🍕 He, along with fellow conspirator Andrew Charles, creates cool visuals and a friendly atmosphere that is welcome addition to the city’s scene! 🖤
