The Do-Over: A Red Bull Music Academy Special

In the past five years, LA’s sangria-sipping institution has grown from an intimate backyard party into a global phenomenon, touching down across the globe to spread their message of heavy tunes and summer-time vibes. For this special NYC edition the crew pull out all the stops, bringing a secret guest to jive with their cadre of residents including Red Bull Music Academy graduate Aloe Blacc.

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the Do-Over x Red Bull Music Academy celebration will now take place at Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club and no longer at The Well. Same mystery guests, same madness & still FREE, but now at an outdoor oasis on the river at South Street Seaport's Pier 17.

Haycock, Strong, Blacc

Haycock, Strong, and Blacc is the crew behind the celebrated Hollywood party the Do-Over. Their template of free admission, buckets of beer, mojitos galore, and an all-day BBQ has made it a stone-cold winner in Tinseltown, proving to be the only sensible conclusion to a weekend of raving. Their undercover tactic of not revealing the names of the guest DJs means that those who come to party check their hype and expectations at the door. With connections galore, past guests have included selectors like Pete Rock, Rich Medina, Kon and Amir, Cosmo Baker, J.Rocc, and Maseo. Lately the party’s spread to cities across the country, and they’ve made guest appearances overseas. Do it over? Yes please.

Don’t get it twisted, the man behind this somewhat odd moniker is a true future-beat wizard who would never harm any animals, humans, or classic sample sources. His blissful electronica-fueled rhythm sculptures have already created a decent buzz in the worldwide instrumental hip hop scene. Releasing his first productions and remixes on Japan’s Slye label, he has since worked with Count Bass D, DZA & St Andrew, Quarta330, My Dry Wet Mess, and Coco Bryce among others, and signed singles and EPs to imprints such as Alpha Pup, ICASEA, Fremdtunes, and Citywurl. And despite the fact that this self-proclaimed shy and introverted beat-head (and American literature connoisseur) follows a rather strict theoretical approach, his soundscapes always leave enough space for improvisation and that moment of quirky playfulness.

Within the Pretorian deep house scene, the aptly named DJ and producer Trancemicsoul has emerged as one of the more innovative figures. Taking cues from jazz, downtempo, hip hop, kwaito, and electronic sounds, Trancemicsoul blends them effortlessly in his classy, sophisticated compositions. In his native habitat behind the decks, he showcases a superb deep house selection, built for the long haul and for the even longer night ahead.
