As you all well know by now, we're co-presenting the dictionary definition of a rager this Saturday, February 27 at the Tribeca Grand hotel with The No Comprendo and Terrible Records: The No Comprendo Discotel.
To properly psych all you dear readers (and soon to be dear party-goers) for this fabulous fiesta, we've procured an exclusive mix from one of the best DJ's around, Prince Language, the man behind The No Comprendo. Hopefully his 70-minute disco-heavy odyssey that travels through tropes of old and new dance music alike will get you even more thoroughly excited to be in attendance for his set.
Now, while we at the Anthem offices assume everyone, like us, has the full lowdown on the Prince, this is probably not the case, so we'll lay the important stuff on you. Outside of being a greatly respected, globe-trotting DJ, the New Yorker of 11 years has been behind some seminal parties like NegroClash and a residency at APT, at which legends like Afrika Bambaataa, Juan Atkins, Marshall Jefferson, and many others guested. The man has shared the bill with too many lauded artists to name (Metro Area, DJ Harvey, Derrick May, Francois K., Theo Parrish, DJ Premiere, Pete Rock, and Q-Tip represent the tip of the iceberg) and is an especially active remixer, having previously worked on tunes by LCD Soundsystem, the Rapture, MGMT, Lindstrøm, and the Juan Maclean, to name a few. Calling Prince Language's career well balanced and full would almost be insultingly euphemistic.
Language will be stationed behind the turntables with DFA's own Justin Miller throughout the night, but we've also got a live band taking the stage to pump out a few of their tunes. If you don't know Twin Shadow already, we're certain you'll start hearing the name name all around town soon enough. Grab a few of his tracks right here.
Boogie on through the final hours of this workweek and be sure to say hi once you've arrived at the Grand. Spread the word via Facebook by clicking on over to the event page, too!
