“From New Order to Carl Craig through to The Pet Shop Boys and La Roux, the Italo Disco sound has had a profound effect on modern pop and club culture.” DJ Benetti
This special Boiler Room and FIAT presented one-off / free New York event is a celebration of all things Italo Disco. This rounded-out full evening, features a panel discussion, record store and club event that is devoted to delving into the longstanding transatlantic link between Italian sounds and American producers.
The presentation starts online with two special video interviews exploring the Italian roots of the Italo sound with veterans who were there in Italy at the inception - cosmic maestro Daniele Baldelli and Tony Carrasco of Klein & MBO. Boiler Room and Fiat then hop across the Atlantic on October 8th to New York to present an evening with contemporary American artists heavily influenced by the heyday of Italo, starting with a panel discussion in the early evening (4pm - 5:30pm at Verboten's Cabaret), followed by an all night club session with Jacques Renault, Juan Maclean x Nancy Whang (playing back to back for the first time ever), San Francisco’s Honey Soundsystem and headliner Los Angeles’ Classixx. The event which will take place at Brooklyn’s Verboten nightclub will be live broadcast on Boiler Room and archived post event.
The event will also feature a special Italo Disco record store curated by Brooklyn vinyl emporium Superior Elevation (look for the FIAT), and the event will feature an open bar.
