BLACK FRIDAY SPECIAL.jpg

Powered by Traxsource

“One of the most gifted and focused production teams in the New York house underground, John “Roc” Mateo and Eddie “E-Z” Matos were both educated in the warm vibe of disco first-hand by listening to classic DJs on New York radio during the late ’70s.”
-Feel My Bicep

They have been inspired by listening to Larry Levan, Tony Humphries, Shep Pettibone and Little Louie Vega. They were introduced to Vega later that year, learning about studio production and engineering from him, and by 1989, they were working on their own productions.In the years from 1986 through 1989 Mateo & Matos performed at a large number of club festivals and old school block parties in the tri-state area of New York. After several releases on their own Final Cut Records label, they went on to record for Oxygen Music Works, Henry Street, Nervous Records, Nite Grooves and Spiritual Life Music in the mid-1990s. Their debut album as producers, New York Rhythms, appeared on the Scottish Glasgow Underground Recordings label in 1997, with a second volume appearing the following year. In 1999, these were followed by The Many Shades of Mateo & Matos.

They’ve since brought their work to deejay appearances in over 30 countries and dozens of original productions and remixes on record labels such as Manuscript Records Ukraine, King Street Records, Defected Records, and Large Records.

They’ll be joined by resident and NYC house main stay Rissa Garcia.

Dancing Room Only with Eli Escobar and Rissa Garcia

 Eli Escobar is a mainstay in the New York underground, considered a connoisseur of quality sounds both behind the decks and in the studio. As a DJ, he is technically flawless and a genuine selector, which has seen him land numerous residencies at Le Bain, Submercer, and Tiki Disco just to name a few. As a producer, he’s had his finest year to-date, with the release of his sophmore album on Classic Music Company selling-out on vinyl not once, but twice. His classic-sounding fusion of house and disco makes his music feel instantly timeless – for that reason alone, Eli Escobar’s going nowhere soon and is set for another year to remember in 2017.  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 Dancing Room Only NYC which has welcome several legends behind the decks like Todd Terry, Danny Krivit, Jellybean Benitez, DJ Spinna and more.

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.

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!
