Dancing Room Only x Forward Disco present Hector Romero's Birthday Bash with Fred Everything.
Picture the summer 1983…In the Bronx, NY a block party, also known as a street jam, is in full effect. A 13 year old kid steps in front of the turntables and starts playing a combination of Latin, House and Hip Hop music. The crowd goes wild and quickly the neighborhood nicknames the young kid ‘Baby Hec’ Romero. As his notoriety and age grows, he finds himself playing at the premier Latin Dance Club ‘La Mirage’, and doing nights at the hippest street club the ‘Devils Nest’. The very same club where friend Louie Vega got his start. Soon after that, "Baby Hec" Romero (a name that has taken years to shed) found himself DJ-ing at some of New York City’s legendary clubs and underground spots such as Save the Robots, The Red Zone, famed Palladium, and the Roxy.
In 1994, Judy Weinstein recruited Hector Romero to work at Def Mix Productions and assist in the creation of Definity Records, an imprint Weinstein and partner David Morales was working on launching. Hector found he was not as interested in Remixing or Producing but he loved the balance between the creative DJ and the businessman. A&R, and working on the business end of Music, was a better fit. Weinstein took him under her wing and taught him the technique of good business management. The longtime business arrangement garnered him the position of Label Manager of Definity Records the Def Mix imprint.
He's invited special guest Fred Everything to join him as well as party residents Rissa Garcia (Dancing Room Only) and Sean Cormac & Chili Davis (Forward Disco).

Collectively, songwriter-producer, Lem Springsteen, and composer-producer, John Ciafone work together as the production duo known as Mood II Swing. They met in the early 90s as members of a recording group where John and Lem wrote and produced tracks together. Prior to their meeting, one might consider them worlds apart. John was inspired by classical music, rock, and hip-hop. He began as a DJ and started producing music with an underground hip hop group on Long Island, New York, in the mid 80s. Lem was writing R&B songs, at a tender age and gigging a single signed to Chrysalis UK around the New York city club circuit. Both, musically trained and inspired by international Pop music of the early 90s, Lem and John decided to forge their worlds and begin producing music together.
Mood II Swing first started by working together on original material in the early 90s, which was well received by DJs in the NY club scene. Their sound blended different styles within dance music, which was unique at the time. Thanks to the influence of NY House DJs & veteran producers, such as Masters at Work, Mood II Swing also started remixing songs for major labels & indie recording artists.
Eventually, a symbiosis was created where Lem’s chords and musical progressions would inspire drums, keyboards, and arrangements by John. Likewise, John’s drum programming, basslines, and keyboards became the foundation for Lem to write lyrics and melodies. Mood II Swing began to apply their unique style to their own productions, as well as remixes.Mood II Swing’s name recognition turned the start-up music production company into a group name with a cult following of House music lovers, globally. The duo is responsible for many dance floor gems and the UK radio crossover hit “Free” by Ultra Nate.
Currently, in the post millennium, with a resurgence of early 90’s House music, John Ciafone and Lem Springsteen have rejoined as a production team to showcase their music in DJ sets. Mood II Swing are now working with UK Agency, Air London, and they have a compilation to be released in 2016 titled, ‘Strictly Mood II Swing’ on the Defected UK label. Lem Springsteen and John Ciafone intend to showcase their music to new generation of House music lovers through the release of their classic tracks and new productions.
Joining Mood II Swing are Forward Disco residents Sean Cormac & Chili Davis, Dancing Room Only resident Rissa Garcia and King Street Sounds The Wig.

Myers, the founder of Accuweather.
This coming Friday, we are uniting together to stand (and dance) in solidarity with those who've been impacted by last week's catastrophic flooding, to raise critically-needed funds for the nonprofits and relief effort groups providing aid and resources to the massive number of people, wildlife and life sustaining infrastructures impacted by last week's catastrophic flooding of Houston and surrounding areas.
Join us, as 10 local DJs take the stage for an eclectic evening of quality music, along with a live painting by Adal Ray of Majestic Tattoo NYC.

Donation boxes will be available on stage to donate cash to selected reputable charities. A description of each charity will be provided as well (suggestions welcome).

Good Room and Dobbin St present...
Marcellus Pittman Unirhythm
Tickets - $20 advanced or $30 at the door
Nothing beats a rooftop party on a summer day so Good Room and Dobbin St have prepared nine of them for you. Happening every other Sunday, Good Roof at Dobbin St will feature some of the best international talent as well as local legends and up and comers.
Marcellus Pittman is headlining our Labor Day weekend party. One quarter of the Three Chairs alongside Rick Wilhite, Kenny Dixon, Jr. (aka Moodymann) and Theo Parrish, Marcellus is a Detroit OG. The Unirhythm label founder is known for his soulful take of house music, disco and funk with his productions making you feel all the feelings. Last time we had Pittman at Good Room he slayed the Bad Room for 7 hours straight. We can’t wait to hear what’s in his record bag this time around. Dancing Room Only’s Rissa Garcia is joining him on this afternoon, bringing some New York house to the party.
Dobbin St is located a few blocks from Good Room and has one the best, if not the best rooftop in the neighborhood. Having just opened last year, the renovated factory is the perfect place to dance to the sunset with full views of the Manhattan skyline. A full bar will be running on the rooftop.
