MALUCA's London Debut

Isa GT
Work It Girls

83 Rivington Street
Shoreditch, London

AplusR is the newest adventure by the people who brought you the groundbreaking parties NYC/LDN and MAP, i.e the same people who brought to the UK the likes of BLK JKS and Theophilus London for the very first time.

It is with this same spirit of discovery, the most recently signed
Maluca of Mad Decent Records comes over from NYC for the hottest party at Cargo. Maluca draws inspiration form her Nuyorican roots but makes uncompromising dance music aimed squarely at the dance floor. Following in the footsteps of Buraka Som Sistema or M.I.A., Maluca embraces the rhythms and a melody ingrained in her cultural heritage and adds an unhealthy dose of BASS to create an intoxicating musical cocktail that is both heavy and refreshing at the same time. Already singled out by the Midas-like Diplo, who will be producing her first 12" on Mad Decent, Maluca only has one way to go: UP; and if you happen to cross her path here is only one thing to do: SHAKE IT!

DJ Martelo will be turning up more Heat at Cargo, having just toured with Toddla-T & Oneman, He also has worked/Produced/Remixed for the likes of Santogold, Riva Starr, Mumdance or Hervé and that’s just naming a few. Martelo has a proven record as a Bassline specialist of the highest order, and his sets flow seamlessly from dancehall to b-more to fidget via Hip Hop and Dubstep and anything else in between. Dope ish!!

Isa GT is a Colombian born member of Girlcore, the all-girl DJ collective that has been destroying London's East End with their riotous mashup parties. A budding producer, Isa GT has been championing the Funketa sound, a fierce mix of the Colombian dance Champeta and Brazil's percussion heavy Baile Funk. Her first release - Pela'o - has been remixed by Crookers, and she is now working on a track with the Zombie Disco Squad so she clearly knows what she's doing!

Last but not least, the in-demand
Work It! DJs will be warming hips and toes from the DJ booth with their Boom-Bap-a-licious 90's hip hop selections that have earned them coveted invitations to play at Q-Tip's after-party and to host their own Bloc Party at the ICA and not to mention the Shoreditch is Shit Vs PLAIN JANES night at 333. Boom Bap yo!

AplusR is powered by PEGGY UNLTD in proud association with the PLAIN JANES Collective.
Carmina Soul
with DJ Spinna
11PM - 4AM
Old American Can Factory
232 3rd Street
btwn 3rd + 4th Ave Brooklyn

Residents Chris Annibell and percussionist Amon welcome Brooklyns own favorite son, DJ SPINNA to the stage. Together, they will infuse Brooklyn's dance community with West London Broken Beats, Latin Grooves, Global House, Philly Soul, Jazz and African Polyrhythms; a night geared towards honoring the cultural landscape of Gowanus, Brooklyn and to transcend the confines of traditional clubs.

Join us to celebrate the dawn of a new GALAXIE. Akin to its sister party, Donuts (founded by DJ Pickpocket & video artist Alison Childs), GALAXIE welcomes bands, DJs, sound and video artists, filmmakers, designers and artists of all kinds who break through intergalactic boundaries of art, sound, space, synths, technology and visual perception to perform together in one space while providing fun dance-party entertainment to the local community.
