Who said a dollar can’t get you anywhere these days? Sun Airway performed during the Making Time $2 Bill bash Friday night at Voyeur. MT's excellent resident DJs Dave P and Sammy Slice, Dave Pak, Mike Z, Joel Flood, Russ Alexander, Steve Vena, The Broadzilla DJs, and Tony Modica were also on deck.
The evening also served as a record release celebration for Sun Airway's delightful latest offering, Soft Fall.
Always throwing the best parties, Philadelphia’s own Making Time hosts Dave P and Mike Z have a new project they want to share with the world: Making Time RADio. Over this past Labor Day weekend, they both flew to Los Angeles, CA to capture all of the backstage happenings at FYF Fest and broadcast them live on the radio over the two day festival, recording for eight hours each day. During the broadcast, which took place in a trailer in the artists’ area of the festival, Dave P interviewed and hosted DJ sets by tons of rad artists. The trailer and entire production was paid for by a Brazilian sunglasses brand called Chillibeans. Big thanks! We are super jealous that he hung out with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, HEALTH, Tycho, Liars, Johnny Jewel (of Glass Candy + Chromatics), Peaking Lights, Daughn Gibson, Simian Mobile Disco, Paul Banks (of Interpol), Sleigh Bells, Nick Waterhouse, Ceremony, The Faint, Tiger and Woods, Gold Panda and more. Missed it live? Have no fear! Now, all of the interviews are available on their new dedicated project website as SoundCloud webcasts. We really hope they keep doing this for festivals all around the globe, so check out some free tunes and show your support! Don't forget to find Making Time on Facebook and Twitter!
It’s been a long time since the last Making Time, huh? One month ago we raged our little hearts out at The Making Time Summertime HYPER-RAGER with Sleigh Bells, Phantogram and Twin Shadow. Since then, we’ve been waiting patiently for the next Making Time. I mean, it has been over THREE months since we’ve all experienced a Making Time at its classic location, Voyeur (we kind of miss it). That’s why we’re pretty stoked that the next Making Time is officially upon us!
Friday, September 7 we are moving back to the club for what is sure to be a crazy Making Time to start off the Fall season. And it’s about to get futuristic. We’ll be experiencing the futuristic sounds of Holograms and TEEN along with Making Time kindred spirit, Optimo, in the Ruby Lounge Basement. We haven’t forgot about our resident DJs either, Dave P and Sammy Slice will be spinning futuristic #MEGABOMBS along with Dave Pak, Mike Z, Joel Flood, Russ Alexander, Steve Vena, The Broadzilla DJs and Tony Modica. We kind of can’t wait to get back to the club.
PS. You don’t have to wait till September 7 to experience the futuristic sounds! Dave P will be broadcasting Making Time Radio LIVE from FYF Fest in Los Angeles this Saturday and Sunday from 1-8pm PST (4pm-11pm EST) You can listen here, or download the Making Time iPhone app!
