Just Announced | Dancing Room Only: Greco & Ant Larock, Rissa Garcia and Day Cart

Greco(Strictly Rhythm/Dopewax/Rawsome) A young man driven by a fundamental motivation whose character is not strictly confined to the walls of a studio would be a definition fit for DJ/Producer Thomas Greco. His passion within the industry to create art as a means to express himself musically as well as a means to communicate with his audience separate this artist from the rest. His style includes creating a kinetic energy throughout his audience that would express the character he embodies within his art. Such an ambitious character is one that demonstrates a light sense of humor and a positive attitude that motivates his audience to simply have a great time and dance! Ant La Rock(Nervous/D-Vine Sounds/Dopewax) Ant LaRock's first single was picked up by Todd Terry's InHouse Records, propelling him amongst House royalty. After several releases, 2015 brought major label remixes for the likes of Giorgio Moroder's pairing with Kyle Minogue on "Right Here Right Now" and future pop icon Petite Meller's "Babylove". Ant's contributions helped both singles land heavily on Billboard Dance charts as well as on dance floors. Later that year Ant produced a dirty floor-stomper for Charlotte Devaney's collaboration with Snoop Dogg on Vigin/EMI. An April 2015 collaboration with his mentor, Todd "the God" himself, welcomed the Ministry of Sound release of "Back Around" followed by the subsequent remix EP on Inhouse. 2016 is starting off with a bang for Ant with a fresh EP on the venerable Nervous Records. Constantly innovating, bending genres and refining, Ant LaRock demands attention. Rissa Garcia(Resident Dancing Room Only) Born and raised with the classic NYC influences all around her, she has become a driving force of her hometown scene. In addition to running NightChild records, she is the founder & resident DJ of the Dancing Room Only NYC which has welcome several legends behind the decks including DJ Spinna, Danny Krivit, Todd Terry and Jellybean Benitez. Day Cart Growing up in the Tri-State area, Day Cart, aka Harrison Williams, was exposed to the tenacious and bustling nightlife scene that has evolved in NYC. Dance music became a firm passion of his after attending various house and techno warehouse parties that seemed to pop up like weeds, and he quickly plugged himself into the community. After exploring the wide range of genres and styles that are ever present within the culture, Harrison was hooked to the gritty underground where music is a shared obsession by many who find themselves wrapped up in the dimly lit rooms.  With a degree in Philosophy and Psychology he has used his skills to analyze and interpret the disparate emotions felt while in the dance. He spent time as the Managing Editor of Magnetic Magazine and is currently the East Coast Editor at the renowned Mixmag Magazine located in the Brooklyn office.  Also an experienced DJ, he has held a monthly residency at one of the Lower East Side’s most attended DIY venues, Leftfield NYC, and continues to put on events dubbed Goonroom with co-founder Wig-Wam.

FORWARD DISCO: ANOTHER NIGHT W/DEF MIX

Forward Disco presents: Another Night with Def Mix Line-up: Dj David Morales  Hector Romero Rissa Garcia Forward Disco residents: Sean Cormac & Chili Davis Doors Open early: 9PM Since first playing Forward Disco back in 2013, Hector Romero has made us feel like a part of the Def Mix family. Since then, we have been together for a number of events, including an incredible boat party, the Def Mix annual for WMC in Miami and that special night in 2015 when we presented a night with Def Mix at Cielo with Hector and Dj David Morales. Well, we are long overdue for another one of those special nights. For the closing of our Summer Series at Cielo, Forward Disco presents a Night with Def Mix: David Morales, Hector Romero and FD residents Sean Cormac & Chili Davis. If you were at part 1, you know what a magical night that was. After a summer where David & Hector have been delivering more than just the goods overseas, this will be a chance to catch them on their home turf. David has been relentless lately, bringing that Red Zone alias and sound to labels such as Cadenza, Suara, Quantize, MoBlack and of course his own Def Mix imprint. Never one to be pigeon holed, David’s funkier side, ‘The Face‘ will see a re-emergence with an upcoming release on Def Mix, which is the perfect compliment to his recent work with Glitterbox and Defected. Hector continues to establish himself as one of the premier artists from NYC. After topping the charts with his Nervous Records compilation, this summer has seen Hector take hold of events in Italy, Spain, Croatia, Greece to name but a few. One of the widest ranging DJs, Hector knows more than anyone how to grab the pulse of a NYC dancefloor. We are super excited that Dancing Room Only NYC boss Rissa Garcia is joining us as well.  Born and raised in what was once considered the mecca of house music, New York City, Rissa Garcia caught the music bug at a very early age. She grew up listening to all sorts of rhythms including Latin, jazz, R&B,soul, house, rock, disco and funk. Years later she made her way into the club scene and in the year 2000, she discovered a club called Vinyl with a DJ named Danny Tenaglia. She fell in love with the atmoshphere while falling deeper in love with the music. "My soul just seemed to come alive & it completely engulfed me. From the lights to the vibe to the dark walls & sexiness in the air, this is exactly what I have been searching for, this was my Paradise Garage." Inspired by the man who poured his heart & soul into his music, along with many others who do the same, she began to collect records and learn the true art of the DJ. Her first gig back in 2004 was at a small lounge on NYC's Lower East Side where she received rave reviews. Since then Rissa has been lucky enough to have played some of the best venues in NYC, such as Cielo, Output,Santos Party House,TBA and more.  She currently runs her own imprint, NightChild Records, and has released over sixty EP's from producers across the globe. With some of her recent releases receiving support from Alexander Robotnik, Louie Vega, X-Press 2, Jus-Ed and more, she strives to offer a consistent quality synonymous with those who have an influence on her. Forward Disco residents Sean Cormac & Chili Davis have been holding things down at Cielo for over five years now (recently celebrating our five year anniversary with a residents night) Sean & Chili will not only be celebrating their birthdays, they will be setting the tone for David & Hector for this special closing to our fifth summer series at NY’s home for house music.

Hurricane Harvey Fundraiser

21314852_1977306685832182_5476515118544198624_n.jpg

Being 1,650 miles away from Houston makes it difficult for us to physically be there to help the tens of thousands of families evacuating their homes due to Hurricane Harvey, which has now been deemed likely to be "the most damaging storm in U.S. history", by Dr. Joel N. 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.

No cover charge. 21+ to enter

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). 

10% of alcohol proceeds will be donated directly to charities supporting relief efforts. 

Receipts for all donations will be fully documented & shared immediately after the event. 

Featuring DJs: (listed alphabetically):

☉ Anna Cavazos [[Little Giant Records]]
☉ Mira Fahrenheit
☉ Todd Fatjo [[Jack / Hot Wax]]
☉ Rissa Garcia [[Dancing Room Only NYC]]

Good Room and Dobbin St present...
Marcellus Pittman Unirhythm
Rissa Garcia

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. 

Dancing Room Only w/Todd Terry, Toribio & Rissa Garcia

“Todd Terry is one of the quintessential NYC dance music producers – for more than 25 years. Born in Brooklyn, Todd Terry is as much New York as it gets. Blessed with the instinct, aesthetic and freedom that comes with hip hop, he created a unique brand of house music. Heavy on the sample tip and always aimed directly at the dancefloor, his earliest records like Bango, A Day In The Life or Can You Party set the parameters for his musical universe. Graced with an unmistakable sound signature, the house sound of Todd Terry is one of the essential reference points of this music – you just know a Todd Terry beat when you hear it. Citing classic disco, rock or funk records throughout his works, Terry’s tracks were as much in favour with US-American DJ heavyweights like Tony Humphries as they were with the hyped-up club music crowds on the UK island. Todd Terry’s effectiveness spread further through his several aliases like Gypsymen or CLS, and records like Jungle Brothers’ seminal I’ll House You, his classic chart-topping remix for Everything But The Girl’s Missing, and his very own version of Keep On Jumpin’. His labels TNT and Freeze released a nitty-gritty range from vocal house to hip hop instrumentals and disco cut-ups, as well as his infamous Unreleased Projects.” -RBMA if you missed the first one...check it out here Also joining in is the fab Toribio of Most Excellent Unltd. if the name sounds familiar, he recently released an EP featuring a remix from none other than Joe Claussell. Check it here.  And as always in the mix our resident Rissa Garcia.

Get Tickets- Dancing Room Only presents Danny Krivit, Forward Disco & Rissa Garcia


"One year ago, our very good friend Rissa Garcia launched, what would soon become one of NYC’s can’t miss events ‘Dancing Room Only‘ at Cielo. For the launch, she presented Danny Krivit, with support from Forward Disco residents Sean Cormac & Chili Davis, as well as herself, the DRO resident artist. Over the last year DRO has presented a master class in house music taught by some of the best, including Todd Terry, Charles Webster, Victor Simonelli, Jacques Renault, DJ Spinna, Eli Escobar, Jellybean Benitez and many more. For her one year anniversary, Rissa is bringing back the legendary Danny Krivit with support once again from Sean & Chili. This lineup has been intact now for three Forward Disco events, two Dancing Room Only events and one magical 718 Sessions. Needless to say, our nights with Rissa and Danny have been the kind of nights that people refer to as some of their best nights out and the kind of night that is always met with ‘we can’t wait for the next one’ as soon as the night ends. Do not miss out on this one!
