3:30 PM to 2:00 AM
at Avant Gardner
Spanish experiential events brand Elrow returns to Avant Gardner on December 11th for an out-of-this-world two-stage takeover. It's the second time we've been lucky enough to host the dazzling and over-the-top antics of the Elrow family. As winter begins to close in, it's a glorious way to close out the year while experiencing the big-top high-jinks of our Spanish dance music family.
Last year's Rowattacks party was canceled due to COVID, so there's even more reason to celebrate this year's space and alien-themed event. The Elrow team is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to world-building. So, you can be sure that the King's Hall and the Great Hall of Avant Gardner will be decked out from top to bottom in colorful decor while a host of vibrant characters roams the venue. And as always, Elrow encourages you to get in on the fun, so grab an inflatable, don an intergalactic fit, and tell your newfound friends about that time you swear you saw a UFO on the way home from the afters.
The lineup is as tasty as they come, featuring a bevy of an intriguing back-to-back and solo sets from an international array of house music's finest selectors.
The Great Hall will be decked out in the evening's space-age theme while 11 DJs provide the soundtrack to a confetti blast-filled night.
Four Elrow residents and label mates are heading up the room with back-to-back sets from Andrea Oliva and Cloonee, plus Bastian Bux and Rendher. In addition, Moscow Records frontman Archie Hamilton will bring his eclectic style to Rowsattacks. And everyone can rejoice in seeing the queen of piano house, LP Giobbi, return to Elrow for a high-energy solo set.
Dutch-born, Ibiza-based Chelina Manuhutu will rock the house with her sun-soaked and rhythmically distinct tech house. While self-professed club professional and Cocoon Recordings stalwart Ilario Alicante takes on a journey through his brilliant melding of house and techno. And the night wouldn't be complete without a performance from legendary veteran producer Martin Ikin. With over 30 years in the game and production credits for everyone from Mariah Carey to Masters At Work, Ikin will bring the goods.
Lee Foss' Repopulate Mars imprint is hosting the King's Hall. The theme is modeled after Elrow's festival Elrow City. Let's pause to appreciate how lucky we are to have two fully themed Elrow rooms under one roof...
Of course, a Repopulate Mars hosted stage wouldn't be complete without a performance from Lee Foss. Still, Rowsattacks attendees get an even sweeter holiday treat with an additional back-to-back closing set by the label boss with one of the most respected names in house music, Detlef. And that means we get treated to a solo Detlef set as well; what a treat!
GRAMMY Award-winning producer and New York legend CID will be laying it down in the King's Hall as well as fellow New Yorker Westend, who is making his Elrow debut. Candian DJ, producer, and event curator Heidi will bring her energetic and unique vibe to the Repopulate Mars room. And the dynamic and diverse J. Worra will dazzle you with a set that is sure to touch every corner of groove-laden house.
With an experience like no other and a lineup that will keep the subs flexing and the confetti flying, there's no reason why you shouldn't get to Rowsattacks for those early sets and stay until the last record spins.
