update : December 22, 2011
It’s been a stellar year for the sub:culture crew – kicking off with events at
Inc Lounge in NY’s Time Hotel and of course a stunning WMC event atop the
C-Level roof deck at the Clevelander Hotel in Miami, leading up to the launch
of NOIRE at the Night Hotel and finally the kickoff of OUR HOUSE at downtown dance space DROM. Our resident DJs Jon Martin, Shifty Kid, Delmar Browne and Wayne Louis have been busy working the decks at clubs, lounges and hotels, on internet broadcasts and podcasts – and we’ve had the great fortune to welcome a stream of stellar guest DJs from around the world to play with us, bringing their unique track selections, styles and energies.
We have been blessed to have so many opportunities to bring our friends
together, and to meet so many new ones who also appreciate the power of great music, and although we’ve had our setbacks along the way, we are PROUD to continue pushing forward with our mission of BRINGING EXCEPTIONAL PEOPLE TOGETHER THROUGH EXCEPTIONAL MUSIC.
As we wrap up 2011, we would like to extend our gratitude to all of those
who’ve participated, contributed or supported us this year! Without you, there would be no sub:culture … you can bet your last dollar that we will continue to grow and expand in 2012 – with events at new venues and old familiar spaces, new podcasts, broadcasts, remixes and releases, and of course a cross-section of some of the most interesting, creative and downright fun characters on earth or anywhere else!
With that, WE THANK YOU – and wish you and yours the most fabulous holiday season imaginable.
Of course, this post wouldn’t be complete without a plugger for something
fierce, so join sub:culture resident and co-founder JON MARTIN on Monday,
December 26th for a FABULOUS night of dancing and debauchery, alongside MUTED MONDAY resident Mike Dominico and host Big Papa, at Sapphire Lounge (249 Eldridge St, New York, NY) … we’ll be desperately dancing off those excess holiday calories … and we hope to see you there too!
