"MUTUAL DREAMING: When Two or More People Dream the Same Dream"
This is part 4 of a conceptual all night dance party - lit dreamily by projectors & candles. Shea is an awesome DIY loft space near the Grand St. L train, with a great soundsystem, an outdoor balcony & a bar. All the bands use synthesizers and drum machines.

--- Beppe Loda ---
We are very exited to have Italian DJ legend Beppe Loda as the headliner for this night! Beppe is famous for introducing a futuristic new mixing style in the early 80s, playing obscure disco, minimal synth & industrial, and funky 'Afro' music in an extremely psychedelic fashion - changing tempos, adding sound effects, all while making people dance like crazy. His residencies at clubs Typhoon and Cosmic marked the height of the Italo-disco era, and he hasn't stopped blowing minds since. Prepare for a journey.
There's a great description and interview here : http://www.tropicalcomputersystem.com/loda/
--- Blues Control ---
Blues Control is an experimental rock duo (Russ Waterhouse & Lea Cho) from Queens who now live near Philadephia. Their sound is acid drenched, fuzzy, riffy, sometimes minimal and tinged with New Age. The band has put out 3 albums and are currently collaborating with Laraaji (who's 'Day of Radiance' album was produced by Brian Eno in 1980) on a full length slated for release by RVNG Intl. This will be their long awaited return to NYC for their first show in a while!!
--- Professor Genius ---
Debut performance by NJ resident Jorge Velez AKA Professor Genius. His music is classic analog - soaring leads, catchy rhythms and Italo-esque melodies. He has put out many records for Italians Do It Better, and has an upcoming release on L.I.E.S., and remixes for Led Er Est & Steve Moore.
--- Terekke ---
Terekke is the new artist on Ron Morelli's label L.I.E.S. that everyone is talking about. Using SH101, 707 and druggy filters, all recorded live to cassette tape, his music has a deep, hazy, haunted Newworldaquarium-esque vibe. Straight from Bushwick.
--- Jan Woo ---
Warming up the night and taking over at 3am is Jan Woo, who is more influenced by by the 'afro/cosmic' technique than any other DJ I know. Boogie/funk/disco/techno dancey insanity.
--- Tropical Jeremy ---
Jeremy is a close friend of Beppe's and a much loved New York DJ with an italo/boogie specialty. His recording project Zoovox (with Ben Gebhardt) recently performed a Linn-drum injected DJ set at a PS1 Summer Warm Up Event.
