Love Tempo in the Bad Room
with Justin Strauss and Billy Caldwell
Entry – $10 first release / $15 second release / $20 at the door
Slow Hands is about emotion, about warmth, about creative freedom. He makes music that gets you thinking and feeling as much as dancing. With that aesthetic in mind, we’ve invited Slow Hands and his friends to take over Good Room for a night of sexy sounds and smooth moves on the dancefloor.
Slow Hands aka Ryan Cavanagh is an organic specialist. His rich yet languid style bares all the hallmarks of the classical and compositional training he has had, whilst everything from jazz to blues to trippy electronica inform the New Yorker’s well honed production palette.
There have been remixes and high-profile covers (Sade’s ‘Sweetest Taboo’) along the way, too, whilst dance floors across the world have all fallen under his charmingly seductive spell. Of course, Wolf + Lamb’s legendary Marcy Hotel is one of those places, and has been since the start, whilst Slow Hands is also resident DJ for boutique NYC promotion and web-zine, Autobrennt.
Justin Strauss and DJ Billy Caldwell are back for another round in the Bad Room. The Love Tempo boys will come ready with creates of records for a night where you can expect to hear anything from disco and cosmic to acid house and post punk.
Few DJs could adequately represent the last three decades of New York nightclub history – no less do so with such iconic credentials as Justin Strauss. Starting as DJ at New York’s legendary Mudd Club, he spun his way through The Ritz, Limelight, Area, Tunnel, M.K., Life, Centro Fly and more, pioneering his own distinctive sound, and becoming one of the most sought-after remixers and producers not just in New York, but in the world. He has worked with the gamut of artists – Depeche Mode, Sergio Mendez, Tina Turner, Jimmy Cliff, B-52s, Luther Vandross, Malcolm McClaren, Skinny Puppy, Goldfrapp, to name a few.
Billy Caldwell made his name at Manchester U.Ks legendary ‘HOME’ , Hacienda & Paradise Factory Clubs’ as well as co founding and DJing at the Infamous ‘Epping Walk After Hours’ Party in his native Manchester England. Now living and working in New York, Billy spins at some of the funnest venues in the City and Brooklyn.
