Wrecked wraps 2021 with an ebullient head-to-head: Honey Soundsystem’s Jason Kendig and Ryan Smith run the night. Since the founding of HSS almost 15 years ago, Kendig has been at the forefront of the US house and electronic music scene. As a co-curator, he’s helped highlight and support essential, often overlooked queer voices, both young and old. HSS’s San Francisco parties have remained an essential presence, blending uncompromising bookings with a free-for-all hedonism. Kendig’s career has taken him from California to Chicago, where he held a residency at Smart Bar, and across the globe, with a jam packed touring schedule. Wrecked’s Ryan Smith should need no introduction: since 2006, he’s been DJing and organzing some of NY’s most forward thinking and exciting gay parties. Outside NY, he’s been invited to tastemaking nights like Berlin’s Cocktail D’Amore, Detroit’s Club Toilet and the Honcho Campout.
