Housepitality: DJ Spun, Lando, N808
(Admit One Records)
Few have contributed as much to the ongoing vitality of dance music in NYC in the new millennium, or been such a welcome guest at the world’s cult house, disco, and techno parties as Spun. Weather playing Panorama Bar in Berlin, Liquid Room in Tokyo, or a classic disco set for Horse Meat Disco in London, Spun's unique style and approach always sets him apart from the crowd. His Promo Only imprint is credited with bringing the worldwide disco edit craze to the U.S.A. Rong Music and their dual imprint collaboration with fellow NY dance floor eclecticist DFA put out some of the most compelling, and carefully curated, releases of the Noughts.
The parties he throws are the stuff of legend. For seven years the curator of MoMA/P.S.1’s prestigious Warm Up Music series, his All Night Rong parties boast a devoted following from London to Tokyo. For 20+ years his DJ sets, releases and remixes on his own labels and others have seen him aligning with influential pioneers of dance music including Francois K, DJ Harvey, Daniel Wang, Stephen Hall of Arthur Russell and Loose Joints fame, Douglas J.McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb, Radio Slave, Maceo Plex, James Chance and the Contortions, the Idjut Boys, and many more.
