Elrow is back in New York this spring, and for the first time, the traveling circus is in town for two days! That's twice the spectacle, twice the absurdity, and twice the spicy beats. The elrow North American tour marks the return of one of the brand's most beloved themes, Sambowdromo Do Brasil, which will transport you to the most fabulous party on Earth (well, maybe second greatest) Carnaval. Immerse yourself in the jungle theme, and practice those samba moves.
For those that have been, you know that the spectacle is the show at elrow. Hourly confetti blasts, fully themed stages, roaming performers, inflatables, and Rogelia elrow's eggceptional mascot. And, of course, there's a diverse musical lineup to match.
Jackmaster b2b Skream
Heading up the bill are Jackmaster and Skream going b2b. Both legends in their own right, they've both made indelible marks on the face of dance music. While Skream began his career as one of the founders of dubstep, the last decade has seen him throw off the shackles of genre and do whatever he wants. Jackmaster is one of the few in dance music that is more well known as a DJ than a producer. He is a true technician behind the decks with a laundry list of Boiler Room appearances to prove it, including a particularly epic set with house legend Armand van Helden.
Producer of countless house bops, label head of Repopulate Mars, and co-founder of Hot Creations and Paradise, Lee Foss is a titan of house music. The Chicago-born, Los Angeles-based artist always brings a scintillating mix of the funky, sexy, and dirty. He's worked tirelessly to spread his classic house-tinged sound to dancefloors around the world including his triumphant return to Ibiza this summer for his Repopulate Mars residency at Eden.
Latmun b2b Ben Sterling
After only a few years in the game, both Latmun and Ben Sterling have become massively in demand on stages and labels worldwide. The support for Sterling from industry stalwarts has been incredible. Jamie Jones famously played seven of his records in his 2018 EDC Vegas set. Likewise, Latmun has spent the better part of the last five years in the Beatport top 100 charts. Releases on Armada, Hot Creations, Repopulate Mars, and his own freshly minted Planet X imprint have made him a favorite of artists like Carl Cox, Nina Kraviz, Josh Butler, and Solomun.
Riva Starr's credits are too numerous to count. As a DJ, he's adept at turning out festival and club dance floors. He's also an artist with a diverse sonic palette. He's worked with everyone from Green Velvet and CamelPhat to electro legend Arthur Baker. As the frontman for Snatch! Records he's released a wide array of hit records and hosted stages at Tomorrowland and Creamfields. His releases on Dirtybird, Hot Creations, Truesoul, Play It Say It, and Crosstown Rebels prove his ability to toss genres aside and instead make exactly what moves dance floors.
Elrow resident Tini Gessler is a relative newcomer but has already built an impressive resume. The Spanish artist has held down residencies at Pacha Barcelona and Ibiza, Space, and traveled Europe and South America spreading her funky deep tech beats. She's also begun to build an impressive catalog of grooving bass-forward thumpers on lauded labels like Cr2, elrow, and Rawthentic.
Mikey Lion b2b Lee Reynolds
Last year the Desert Hearts crew brought the house down in the King's Hall for the summer edition of elrow, and they're bringing back two of the founders for some day party vibes. Mikey Lion has found that sweet spot between party rocking tech and sweet psychedelic melodics. Similarly, Lee Reynolds brings over two decades of dancefloor experience to the table, with a distinct understanding that a party should also be a spiritual experience. There also may not be a person on the planet who can party like Papa Lee, and he brings that wild hedonistic energy with him everywhere he goes.
Techno titan, foodie, epic beard curator, and label head Will Clarke has spent over a decade creating peak dancefloor experiences for dancers across the globe. The decorated artist's heartstopping techno with a purpose is the perfect distillation of the sounds of bygone raves, the pounding rhythms of the modern dancefloor, and an overwhelming determination to create songs that aren't just anthems but future classics. The British-born Detroit-based artist channels the underground spirit of the Motor City with undeniably infectious energy.
In a few short years, young rising talent Wheats has become a sought-after talent in the house music community. Discovered by Mark Knight, the second-generation DJ and producer has become a staple of the Toolroom brand. And even beyond his work there, his hypnotic bottom-end funky beats have leaked to tastemaker labels like Jamie Jones' Hottrax and Michael bibi's Solid Grooves. As a result, he's standing at the forefront of UK house culture, and this is an incredible chance to catch him on his US tour.
