It’s no secret that we here at URB love the two DJs mentioned up above on the post title; both providing their own signature styles to the dance, NYC’s Falty DL and London’s Floating Points provide a contrast that’s unique in terms of sonic output, but find a common ground in terms of their unabashed love for soulful samples, evident in both their tunes and DJ sets. So naturally, the folks at Output saw it to bring the two heavyweights together on the same bill, all night long. Needless to say, that’s pretty, pretty good. However, Output’s given us at URB a green-light to give our readers a chance to buy tickets to this special affair with a promo code to shave off some bucks off the regular price. While that’s awfully nice, the discount is much nicer when you factor in the notion that this is going to be two world-class vibesmen performing until sun-up. Hopefully we’ll all still be standing by the end of it, fist-pumping while craving a waffle. See you at Output, bring your dancing shoes.

Today’s installment comes from someone who is not a stranger to the annals of URB. One of the leads from the camp that brings to you SFNY, Society, and Sweater Funk, Proof aka Marky Enriquez, has recently embarked on a new curated musical session in SF entitled Subject.
Courtesy of our friends and neighbors at Grown Kids Radio, whom you guys seriously need to check out ALL of the time, comes the Massive Selector alum’s newest aural concoction — Off Subject: Chemistry. Make no mistake about it, this is music for the grown folks nee kids of this musical generation. There’s a lot to like with this recent outing — it’s futuristic, space soul vibe paired with some interesting classic selections and even some indie darlings do much to illicit …
Red Bull Music Academy brings forth another epic event to the forefront of New York City; this time taking over the formerly-abandoned grounds at Autumn Bowl. Not only have they picked an intriguing spot, but the lineup is nothing short of brilliant: with support coming from Eglo badman Floating Points and the headline set being shared by the likes of Jamie xx (no need to reference where he’s from) and living legend of the land, Four Tet. This exclusive event is also free to the public, and will take place in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The address is up above and capacity is extremely, so get there early and enjoy. Check out some landmark tunes from the artists after the jump.
We’re more than thrilled that the combination of the Mister Saturday Night crew and Floating Points are reuniting for a special occasion tonight at House of Yes. Floating Points came here in 2010 and smashed us to bits at Brooklyn Fireproof (at the famed sister party Mister Sunday) with his inventive and sleek set of tunes ranging from soul, house, techno and jazz-inspired lushness. Here at URB, we’ve waited on bated breath for him to return to New York and take us on a trip to the dance once again. We urge you to do the same, as someone like Floating Points is truly a one-in-a-million sort of artist. Check out the flier for Mister Saturday Night with Floating Points and links for ticket sales after the jump.
