Finding a good party in New York City on a Friday night is a relatively simple task, but knowing which party is better than the rest is not so easy. Last week had a clear winner, however: Girls & Boys at Webster Hall.
Before heading to Detroit for Movement Festival, Bromance Records’ own Brodinski, Gesaffelstein, and Louisahhh! played to a restless crowd for hours on end in Webster Hall’s Grand Ballroom May 24. The first two hours consisted of Gesafflestein and Brodinski playing a b2b set, alternating after each track, allowing each producer to show off his own style. Elements of electro, acid, hip hop, and techno flooded the airwaves as the two men injected new life into the term ‘house music’.
Brodinski took every chance he could get to show off his ability to twist up and distort tracks carefully selected by Gesaffelstein as the party went on, but it was clear what the true fans came for: the authentic Bromance sound. The crowd erupted with screams as Gesaffelstein’s awesome tracks such as Aufstand and Opr boomed over Webster Hall’s epic sound system. Even A-trak came out to show his support for his Parisian friends. Could it really get any better than this?
The answer is yes, it can get better, and it did. Up next was Louisahhh! Her first major release just recently came out on Bromance Records, although she had been working with the crew for much longer. Her sexy voice is featured on several of Brodinski’s tracks, such as Nobody Rules The Streets. After going back to back with Brodinski for a little bit, Louisahhh! had her time to shine, playing an energetic set to a city that she once called home.
With so many nightclubs to choose from throughout the city, each with its own appeal, it’s important to keep track of every good promoter in town just to figure out which party is the one not to miss. Just make sure to keep Girls & Boys on that list. A big thank you goes out to Girls & Boys and Webster Hall for putting on such a great party, and for letting us join them as they invite the finest electronic musicians from around the world.
