We’re turning 5 with Michael Serafini and Jason Kendig.
This is a dream lineup of ours (which we may have stolen from a night at Panorama Bar). After seeing these two on a running order together, we decided to invite them both to join us for our birthday. Your residents, Free Magic & Faso will warm up the room, so don’t miss the liftoff.
After five long years, this will be our last monthly party – We’ll still do one off discos here and there and in the meantime stay tuned for the label’s seventh release by Free Magic and Catamaran. Many thanks to all those who have graced these decks with their inspiration and wisdom thus far:

Mark E - Live @ DISCOVERY
DJ Technics Live @ DISCOVERY
Rahaan Live @ DISCOVERY
It’s been a long time, baby! April 12th, we’re proud to welcome Mark E to the decks at last!
Through his records he’s given us some of the greatest dancefloor moments and it’s time to make some more at our home under the starry lights of Glasslands.
Mark’s natural ability to bend time and space shines brightly through his unique style of mixing and the multitude of classic tracks under his belt. From the evergreen crossover R+B Drunkie to his latest endeavor with keyboardist Nat Woodcock as Project E as well. On his own record label, Merc, he commands a vast territory of sound united by powerful, churning trippiness and impeccable class.
As always, expect some of the best dancefloor sweethearts you’ll ever meet, a punchy and clear Danley Labs sound system, cheap drinks, and good vibes pouring out the DJ booth. See you there!
Mark E - Product of Industry album tour, released April 28th on Spectral Sound.

This Saturday we’re teaming up with the effervescent Mutual Dreaming crew to bring you Baltimore Club legend DJ Technics.
We’ve also got Beautiful Swimmers doing the backstroke up from DC and Aurora Halalperforming her live set. Ari and Andrew will arrive with a few backpacks full of dollar bin records and you’ll be all like, “Damn where you get that at!” Those dudes are crate diggers of the highest order and their impeccable taste shines through in their own Future Times label tunes as well.
Mutual Dreaming is on fire right now with a brand new label, plus Aurora’s been wowing folks left and right with her icy, ethereal live sets. Technics is so pumped he’s locked himself in the studio so he can make new jams for the party. Tickets will most likely sell out so please grab a presale.
Watch the man of the hour in action on that rotary!
We are thrilled to announce the January 11th guest: the one-and-only Rahaan of Chicago!
Prepare to be shaken to the bone by the type of powerful edit-disco-house low-down loopy funk that could only come from the birthplace of House, executed by a true master of the ART.
GUEST MIX: Catamaran
Discovery started as a party series out of NYC circa 2009, and although their parties still provide a breath of fresh air to New York night life, they also have become a budding label appropriately titled Discovery Recordings. Now six releases in, with more to come, the Brooklyn based label shows no sign of slowing. ‘Discovery 05’ featured the debut of Catamaran to the label, an NYC resident whose clever use of samples and jackin’ foundation made ‘Gymnasium' a summer favorite. Catamaran's mix for Life Crushed features a curation of tracks that range far and wide but remain consistent in the theme of house and disco vibes.
Definitely standing out as a more optimistic label, Catamaran serves as an ambassador of Discovery Recording’s assumed vision, featuring 45 minutes of undiluted, feel-good melodies. A head-trip to say the least - it is a privilege to work with an artist and a label of this caliber and aesthetic. We look forward to the future of Catamaran and Discovery Recordings.
