On April 8, 2023, J. Worra is back in New York on The Roof of Superior Ingredients. We've been consistently blown away by her unparalleled skills behind the decks when we've had her at Quantum, elrow, and on OCHO. And we couldn't be more excited to have her help us kick off the weekend high above Brooklyn with a glorious sunset painting the sky across the Manhattan skyline. Joining her for a day of delicious beats are UK deep tech talent Iglesias, and Brooklyn's finest, AKKI.
After Jamie shuts The Roof down, we're moving the party inside The Room for another incredible show! So, whether you missed out on tickets to the shenanigans on The Roof or you just can't get enough and need to keep the vibe alive, we've got you covered. J. Worra and Iglesias will be taking us into early Saturday morning, and we've got some special guests lined up as well.
So, if you missed out on your chance to see J. Worra and Iglesias tear up the dancefloor for their sold-out show, don't fret because They will both be playing again inside. These 12-hour marathons are becoming a Gray Area tradition!
2022 has been a landmark year for J. Worra, with major club bookings across the nation and international tours in Europe with Sofi Tukker and in Australia and New Zealand as a solo headliner. 2023 promises to be even bigger, with a string of releases on Ultra, Ninja Tune, and a debut album in the works. She's lined up to grace the stages of all your favorite festivals, but we've got her for a more intimate affair, doing it the Gray Area way in Brooklyn.
J. Worra continues to impress the dance music world with her classic Chicago meets new school tech approach to house music. As her story continues to be written, a more reflective side of J. Worra has emerged marrying her trademark sticky basslines with syrupy sweet vocals and wavy melodics.
Releases like 2022's "Lose My Mind," "Love Boy," and "Lightning To Strike" prove her ability to find the sweet spot between the nostalgia of deeper more emotional house sounds, and the bass-forward bangers she built her brand on.
There's a reason why artists like Kaskade, deadmau5, Gorgon City, Griz, Zhu, Sofi Tukker, SIDEPIECE, and Kyle Watson have called on her for remix work. Her work can convert even the most fevered bass music fan into a house head for life. And she's continued to have praise reigned on her from industry luminaries like Diplo, Claptone, MK, Alison Wonderland, Vintage Culture, and Pete Tong.
As a DJ Jamie's skills are not just well documented, they are absolutely undeniable. A fixture of the US club and festival circuit, she's a regular on stages large and small from EDC Las Vegas, CRSSD, and Coachella to her 2022 direct support slot on Swedish House Mafia's tour.
The world-class talent doesn’t end at our spectacular headliner. We’ve locked in some incredible talent to get the party started. Between performing globally at hotspots like Egg London and Hi Ibiza, releasing on labels like Paco Osuna’s Mindshake Records, and running Woodlands Studio, where he works with the likes of Max Chapman, Latmun, and Detlef, UK talent Iglesias has built quite a brand for himself. All the while, he’s remained dedicated to artistic integrity and put the music above all else.
Opening things up is Gray Area favorite, AKKI. Harnessing a cornucopia of cultures, AKKI's broad soundscapes encompass the breadth of house music's subgenres. She's become a staple of New Yorks's buzzing club scene dropping her unique blend at Elsewhere Space, Brooklyn Steel, and Avant Gardner for elrow.
