10PM – 2AM
Every 1st Friday join us at the Liaison Room where we’ll be throwing down some of the best house and dance music Philly’s got to offer on The Liaison Room’s custom Funktion-One sound system. This room was specifically designed for maximum sound output with warm lows and equalized high-end output.
Each month we will showcase a different Bangarang Resident(s) and a special guest DJ. We will also feature a different visual artist on display with wares available for purchase. We all love to dress up and wear costumes, and while there is no theme for this event, like there are for others of ours, we highly encourage you to dress up in your funnest, funkiest, fanciest, most fabulous, most you attire, whatever you feel like! Come out and support your local artists while enjoying the low, sweet hum of bass, sipping on a drink and catching up — for old time’s sake!
This month, on Friday March 1st, we’ll have musical performances from special guest DJs coming to us from Baltimore, Luxe’n’Bass, and Bangarang’s own Jackie & Jesse. Our featured artist of the month is A. Tobin.
Guest DJs: Luxe’n’Bass (Baltimore)
Rachel Luxe and Matt Lewis, (Dj Bassmint), started performing together back in 2014, their first live performance being at Mountain Madness Festival, in PA. They were booked separately, as individual artists, but ended up playing 6 consecutive hours of music together to close out the festival, and on that day, Luxe’n’Bass was born. Stemming from the interests, and culture, of the Baltimore and DC bass music scenes; these two deliver an exhilarating combination of in your face low frequency, crossed with a mild, but distinct elegance. Their tastes range, and are inspired from Drum & Bass artists such as LSB, Alix Perez, Enei, and QZB, to Deep Dubstep producers such as Sepia, LSN, Drew’s Theory, and AxH. Outside of just their Dj’ing, they are also well known for their work in the production of events, such as Bass Harvest Music Festival, in Pennsylvania, and Mind Space Events, in Baltimore, amongst others. This passionate duo, (now-married couple), is life and breath behind what they do, and it shows when they play. Luxe’n’Bass Loves You!
Bangarang DJs: Jackie & Jesse
Since they met through mutual friends over 5 years ago, Bangarang DJs Jackie G and Jesse Johns have always bonded over their love of music. They each started DJing and developing their own sounds while playing parties for their collective and various gigs throughout Philadelphia and the Northeast. In 2015, when they were booked to play as a b2b team at Philadelphia’s infamous house music event, The Shakedown, they realized that they were onto something special. Not only did they have fun playing music together and worked seamlessly as a team, but their collaboration had an effect on the dance floor as well. Since then, through many late-night b2b sessions, events, and festival sets, their sound and energy has garnered attention.
With their humble natures as individuals, combined masculine and feminine energies, and shared passion for house music, they are a formidable force when playing together. As fun to watch as they are to hear, Jackie & Jesse effortlessly play to the crowd and always bring the vibes.
