It has been a long tradition at SOB's that we showcase varied forms of popular music from soul, hip-hop, electronic, reggae, world music, and etcetera. Part of that tradition has been not only featuring the best live talent, but also nurturing the local DJ and dance scenes. From the historic days a decade ago of Frankie Jackson's Soul Kitchen, to the recent 5-year anniversary of DJ Rekha's Basement Bhangra, we are excited to introduced the newest member of our musical family - Fabian Alsultany, better known as the 'Sultan32', the founding DJ of the now 2-year old GlobeSonic party. Calling out to all music fans, internationalistas, New Yorkers, fashion exhibitors, futurists, party animals, and beyond. This is a party of the world for New York City. This is GlobeSonic.
GLOBESONIC is an electronic world music party. It is the soundtrack of our planet in the 21st Century: Arab Electronica, Campesino Beats, Asian Massive, African Grooves, Ragga, Brazilian Jungle it is all these growing genres and more. Be it 4-on-the-floor house music, or drum and bass, or hop-hop, the GlobeSonic sound is international music with a heavy dance groove. GlobeSonic has held residencies at Paisley, GrooveJet, and Joe's Pub, and is not making its new home at SOB's.
The disco ball is ready to spin, the sound system has been tweaked, the eye candy providers from SquareSquare have been commissioned, and the musical arsenal is ready to blow up the dance floor at GlobeSonic.
