He's the resident of 718 Sessions, cofounder of Body & Soul and a producer/editor/mixer on well over 300 records. A Good Room favorite Rissa Garcia will be on warm up duties for the night. She's the brainchild behind the label NightChild Records and the Dancing Room Only NYC party and is known for her soulful house sounds.

Good Room residents L&L&L Record Club are taking over the Bad Room for the evening. L&L&L's mission statement is simple, to get people dancing. All avid record collectors, the Ls spin a mix of 70s classics, tropical funk, afrobeat, house edits and leftfield jams.

“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.

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.

Jellybean Benitez Takes us back to the Funhouse!

Jellybean Benitez Takes us back to the Funhouse!

On Thursday January 26th, Jellybean Benitez joins Dancing Room Only with a special Funhouse/Paradise Garage style classic house set.

“A giant of New York City club culture during the 1980s, John “Jellybean” Benitez was born to a Puerto Rican mother in the South Bronx. Gravitating toward music at a young age, he started frequenting disco clubs in the mid ‘70s and quickly became an established DJ in the scene.

Tickets Now on Sale for Danny Krivit at Cielo

“Danny Krivit's 45-year DJ career reads like the evolution of dance music itself. He grew up in the '60s, experiencing the very earliest days of New York disco, and later gained a musical education at some of the world's most legendary nightspots. The Loft, The Gallery, The Paradise Garage—Danny was a regular at them all. Remarkably, Krivit is one of only a handful of DJs other than Larry Levan to have played at The Garage.
