Good news: the DFA holiday party is not totally sold out…


From Brokelyn:

The DFA Holiday Party is back at the Glasslands (289 Kent Ave) to rock your holiday socks off on Saturday, December 7 at 11:30pm.

Featuring a whole lot of guest DJs including Sinkane and The Juan MacLean, you’re pretty much guaranteed a ridiculously fun night of holiday cheer, dancing and general industrial debauchery. The only problem? Party tickets went on pre-sale last week and sold out within minutes. [Read more…]

Little Boots “Broken Record” (Hackman Remix)

With intergalactic synthesizer vibes, today marks the release of the Hackman Remix of previously teased single “Broken Record” from Nocturnes, the upcoming sophomore studio release from Little Boots (neé Victoria Hesketh) — just in time for your sunny day wind down.

Catch Little Boots at Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 7th with AVAN LAVA and (one of our newest favorites!) Feathers, celebrating the same day release Nocturnes — featuring contributions from members of Simian Mobile Disco as well as Hercules and Love Affair, with production credit to DFA co-founder Tim Goldsworthy. Basically, we have super high hopes for this record… Not convinced quite yet? Take a listen to fellow Nocturnes track “Motorway” here.

Get your tickets here for what’s sure to be disco synth and babe-filled night!

Gilt City New York has your ticket to a posh evening of top-shelf punches and disco beats in…a Williamsburg laundromat?

That’s right.  On Friday, June 17 from 10:30pm to 4am, Metropolitan Community Laundromat (aka “The Laundromat That Never Sleeps”) on Metropolitan Ave. and Lorimer will be living up to its moniker by hosting the Dirty Disco Laundrette Party.  DJs The Juan MacLean and Justin Miller of DFA Records are set to spin (we presume) BeeGees and Donna Summer at this pop-up renegade dance party.  The $75 ticket also includes sweet open bar access all sexy night long.

Promotion ends Thursday, June 16 at 10am.

Attn: DFA's Justin Miller Cordially Invites You To The Dance Floor Tonight at Brooklyn Bowl

As if our lineup wasn’t stacked enough, starting at midnight tonight you’ll be able to catch Justin Miller of DFA Records killing it on the tables at Brooklyn Bowl. We expect you to bring your very best dance moves, as Miller will be dropping some previously unreleased DFA jams, along with a hand delivered track from Mr. Young Turks himself.

We chatted with Justin about his take on the vinyl wars, his love for smooth 70s jazz, and his last minute trick that got Tim Burton out on the dance floor. We’re excited for a million and one obvious reasons. See you all tonight… and don’t forget to wear your proverbial party pants!

Let’s start with the dividing line in the DJ world. Vinyl or tech– which do you prefer and why?

Vinyl, definitely. I work on a computer all day and if I had to use one to DJ I would go blind. I have a visual/audio recognition when looking at the records I’m playing that helps me hear the music in my head. That just doesn’t happen for me on a computer. I think its a disservice to have too much music available to you at any one time. You tend to stick to what you know or what others might want from you. With a bag of records you shape the night into what you want it to be because you’ve already thought about it ahead of time. Oh, and records sound way BETTER!
