Loyal comrades of the party proletariat, the revolution is here. This May Day, join us for the 1st-ever NYC DJ gig from Aston Harvey of internationally renowned UK bass duo THE FREESTYLERS!
If you rise at the crack of 10 p.m. and toil on the dance floor ‘til dawn, this is for you. If you give of yourself and your booty for the greater good, we dance in solidarity. If you pop it, clap it, or drop it like it’s hot, we link arms and raise fists in your honor. Comrades in arms, legs, and badonkadonks: unite!
In honor of May Day we celebrate the international twerking class, upon whose backsides the great nation of breakbeats was built.
Whether you werk it like it’s your job or are simply twerkin’ 9-5, let’s put the “party” back in “Labor Party”! On Friday, May 1, join Vitamin B and The Freestylers for an International Twerker’s Day destined to go down in the anals of history.
The Freestylers (Aston Harvey DJ Set)
In their 15-year career of global music domination, The Freestylers have covered a 360º spectrum of bass music, releasing five albums and performing at every nightclub and festival from Glastonbury to MTV’s Times Square Millennium Party.
From being voted Best Band by Musik magazine to touring with Lenny Kravitz to appearing on the quintessentially British music show Top of the Pops, they’ve been going non-stop since 1990s – and whether you know it or not, you’ve probably danced to their seminal tracks Punks, Boom Blast, Fasten Your Seatbelts, Painkiller, Cracks, as well s their mainstream hit Push Up. Even if you haven’t left your couch in a couple of decades, you’ve almost certainly heard their music in the films Zoolander and Dude, Where’s My Car?
With another album in the works and new singles and remixes coming out every month, Matt and Aston have hardly been resting on their laurels.
