Earlier this summer online magazine Resident Advisor began a series of events in major cities around the world to celebrate their 10-year anniversary as a leader in online electronic music coverage. Between RA’s immaculate web design, reliable mix series, and user-driven format, the Australian website has become synonymous with international electronic music, and ultimately its bright future.
Titled “RA X, ” each event features a mystery headliner (X), with the rest of the line-up curated by the mystery guest. This Saturday, August 20th, starting @ 8PM, RA touches down in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge. To celebrate RA’s anniversary and our ongoing partnership with the magazine, RA is giving Dubspot readers 3 double passes (2 tickets per winner), plus 1 grand prize winner will receive 1 of 75 screen-printed posters (pictured above), made exclusively for this event, and designed by frequent Shackleton sleeve artist Zeke Clough.
In addition to the mystery guest, the line-up is an especially varied one, featuring Canada’s King Sunshine, a 9-piece ensemble that brings disco, funk and house music’s infectious energy to a live performance environment. The group has worked with folks like Mark Farina, Theo Parrish, DJ Sneak, and Derrick Carter.
The event will also feature deep house and soul artist Peven Everett, dubstep pioneer Mala, one-half of the production duo Digital Mystikz, and label boss of Deep Medi Recordings, as well as Japanese DJ Masashi Nakazawa, who recently did a mix for Time Out New York in support of the event, which you can listen to below.
