BASEMENT: T.Wan / Ron Like Hell
STUDIO: Fatherhood / Ryan Smith
Wrecked continues its run of inviting best-in-class psychedelic practitioners from the NY scene to BASEMENT. On deck this month is T.Wan, a recent transplant to the city whose talent has become impossible to ignore. A Noods Radio resident with close ties to the Antidote party series, T.Wan’s mix wind through spry, pinging drum workouts soaked in atmosphere. Going hard on broken beats and percussive flair, T.Wan always brings a stylish sauciness. For those who know, Ron Like Hell sets a high standard. The Wrecked co-organizer is a true master of the trip, weaving deliciously lysergic tapestries that pound with the best of them.
Fatherhood is back at STUDIO. The duo of Michael Magnan and Physical Therapy has a special chemistry. In both their productions and sets, there’s an inescapably naughty edge that defines their sound. You can hear them each pushing each other, drawing on the rudest strains of NY house and adapting it to something that’s all their own. Ryan Smith is one of NY’s true heads and an exceptional storyteller. His sets draw of throbbing house, entrancing dubby loops, spiky, neon-hued curveballs and misty, romantic groovers. And he makes it all work with his total fluency and years of experience. More than a pro, he’s an auteur.
