NYE 2018

NYE 2018

Dj Dandylion

An avid interest in dance & music began at an early age. Exposed to the New Romantic 80’s, classic rock, and R&B led to my soul-driven styles in house and funk today. Circa 2003, the very first party, *SPINTUITION* in San Francisco, I played alongside distinguished guest and dear friend, John Cameron Mitchell. This kicked it all off.  Migrating from SF, to Hawai'i, Portland OR, and eventually NYC, I found my home and Spintuitive Studios in Brooklyn. Here is where mixes like Black Swag, Audio Bukaki, and the Vintage Funk EDITorial series....mash-ups: Immolate Yourself Tonight, Let's Have A Chaka, LEZLooK...& co-productions: Primal Skin, Albondiga Bodega, and the samba house remix of Aquarela Do Brasil, manifested.  DJ/Producer Erik Elias & I teamed up and signed with Ber'lin Records and Whatever!? labels respectively...the first original house track we produced, PRIMAL SKIN (Ber'lin), earned a spot on the compilation, VOCAL HOUSE SESSIONS 11 (LW Recordings). Three summers in a row, Club Church in Amsterdam had me DJ their awesome weekly...BLUE...including the Europride edition in 2016.  Also under the belt are gigs in Berlin for the Yo! Sissy Music Festival 2015, Reykjavik winter of 2017 at Paloma, plus traveling extensively in the US...spinning New Orleans, Provincetown, Providence RI, Los Angeles, recently Boston (Houseboi), Nashville, & the woods of Tennessee at rural gatherings. In hometowns, Portland, SF, & now NYC, I've guested with Carry Nation, Mattachine, Scandalo, & Easy, locally. The current residency is Bears Night Out/Urban Bear, first Saturdays monthly at Rockbar NYC. In 2017, I played The Lunar Lounge of the Black Party...circuit party, check!  In the wake of recent destructive hurricanes, I organized an awesome team on the fly to benefit Puerto Rico through the Acacia Network, SALVA VIDA.  Ever the #Wordsmith, examples of my concepts, branding, & neologisms are present with parties such as Coinslot, Hip Replacement, & Marinate...DJ mixes such as Sexualchemy, Panoply, Syzygy, & Whizdum.  Besides music...sticker collage, multimedia installation, altars, songwriting, comedy, & a new endeavor, *Clothe-Spin* (T-shirts/clothing featuring poignant plays on words and versions of logo) is launching Spring of 2019.  New York has cut my teeth, and Berlin is my future forward next move-in-the-making. Onward ho!  Born and raised on the West Coast;  the next level in Deejaying, Producing, and Curator of events will immigrate east, taking on a new continent, Europe. CATCH!  

BEARS NIGHT OUT 1st Saturdays@ Rockbar NYC (2015-2018, current)

This was featured by URBAN BEAR, who sponsor my residency:

"Bears Night Out is going on it's 2nd successful year, treating Rockbar and Urban Bears to the sounds of Dj Dandylion. Beyond eclectic, his blend of Discofunk, Soulful House, R&B, and 80's music is peppered with classics you'd never expect to hear in a bar. Coming off the recent success at The Black Party, the satellite residency with Club Church in Amsterdam, and Berlin's Yo Sissy Festival, Dj Dandylion has garnered international attention...not to mention the overwhelming response to the mix, Sexualchemy, as it just topped a whopping 8000 plays on Soundcloud!!! Signed to Ber'lin Records with his first original co-production, the track Primal Skin was chosen for the compilation Vocal House Sessions 11 from UK based LW Recordings, a milestone for the career as an up-and-coming producer. He represents NYC and the Bear Community every 1st Saturday at Rockbar with a uniquely curated soundtrack and stunning visuals to boot!

*MARINATE 2nd Sundays @ Eastern Bloc, NYC (2010-2015)

With a reputation for spinning underground dance music, and a slew of talented guest dj's, performers, and hosts, second Sundays at Eastern Bloc NYC provided the perfect opportunity for a party template.  The offshoot Stacked Sundays featured 3 Dj's, visuals, and an extensive crew, in order to indulge a saucy occasion.  It was a fun run, but wisely ended on a good note. Thanks to Darren Dryden and Ernie Cote who booked me, allowing MARINATE to stew in its juices for five whole years!!!!
