Frog in a Sock and RBMA present Havana Pool Party with Nick Hook (Fool's Gold/NYC) 7/6

Ladies and gentleman, thanks for coming out to Havana #1. We smashed seven years’ worth of pool party records in one day. That might have been two summers worth of fun rolled into one party.
給所有愛好且長期擁戴泳池派對的帥哥辣妹們,感謝大家打破我們七年來HAVANA泳池派對的紀錄,帶給我們今年夏季第一場泳池派對有個完美的開始!

Unfortunately, we won’t be doing parties at the Taipei Country Club anymore.
雖然很不幸地,我們不能再於台北鄉村俱樂部舉辦任何泳池派對了。

BUT HAVE NO FEAR, our pool finders have been working overtime and we have found new pools to keep this summer rolling.
但是請絕對絕對不要擔心,FIAS是百分之兩百不會讓大家的美麗夏季落空的!經過我們不眠不休地奮戰及搜尋,我們終於找到一個很棒且符合我們理想舉辦泳池派對的地點。

To get us REstarted on JULY 6, we have invited Fool’s Gold’s NICK HOOK all the way from NEW YORK CITY to play a set of underground house music at the pool as well as the official AFTERPARTY at M-Club Taipei.
就在下周六,2013年7月6日,讓我們重新啟動我們動感且活力四射的HAVANA泳池派對吧!FIAS特地從美國紐約市邀請在地下玩HOUSE音樂出名的Fool’s Gold NICK HOOK,將為大家帶來一整套完美的派對音樂。
白天的泳池派對還不夠嗎?別擔心,晚上我們還有續攤的等著你!就在最近新開
幕的M-Club唷!

WHO? NICK HOOK (Fool’s Gold) NYC
Transplanted from St. Louis to NYC’s East Village, Nick Hook began turning tables,
starting bands, and collecting synthesizers at a young age. His universal brand of dirty,
analogue dance music has traveled around the world from New York to Tokyo for more than 10 years. With multiple releases under his belt as founding member of Cubic Zirconia, Hook’s eccentric roster of collaborative productions with the likes of EL-P, L-Vis, Gaslamp Killer, Drop the Lime, and Azealia Banks reflects an undying affinity for all types of electronic music.

WHERE: THE GTK COUNTRY CLUB
Address: No. 17, Lane 150, Xiùshān Rd, Beitou District, Taipei City, 112
We found this pool over the winter and feel in love with the fact that it has a big pool, a small pool, as well as a hot tub overlooking the city. It’s only seven minutes from the Beitou MRT station up in the mountains with an amazing view.
貴子坑鄉村俱樂部
地址:112台北市北投區秀山路150巷17號
FIAS在去年冬季發現這個地方就一眼愛上了,這裡有一個很大的游泳池加上一個小水池,還有溫泉浴池。距離北投捷運站僅7分鐘的路程,從貴子坑鄉村俱樂部可遠眺台北101大樓、圓山飯店、新光三越、北投綺麗風光盡收眼底,俯瞰整個城市的感覺是FIAS用言語或文字來形容的,只得靠你自己來感受囉!

WHAT ELSE?
CHICKEN FIGHT BATTLE ROYAL
Since the first pool party was so completely hectic, we didn’t have the chicken fight battle royal. This time, it’s going down for sure when the sun goes down.

Our mission is this—why should big name DJs come to Taiwan just to play at clubs? Why not let them play poolside and lay down exactly what they want for a crowd full of people who are ready to get down to the freshest sounds?

我們的任務是這樣的,為什麼大牌 DJ 來到台灣只能在夜店放音樂?
為何不讓他們在泳池邊,為一群真正想要隨著清新的聲音搖擺起舞的人群放奏?

So this year, we are proud to announce we have not one, not two, but THREE headlining DJs coming to #Havana2013 to play poolside.

因此,今年我們驕傲地宣布,我們不只有一位,而是兩位主場 DJ 來到泳池邊為 2013 哈瓦那放音樂。

WHO ELSE?
何方神聖?

MOOMBAHTON MASSIVE with DAVE NADA (August 3)

WHAT the WHAT? In 2009, Dave Nada slowed down some electro beats and gave birth to a new style of music—MOOMBAHTON. Now he heads to the shores of Taiwan as the first moombahton DJ to play here. He’s released records on Diplo’s Mad Decent label and is one half of the festival-killing Nadastorm. His party Moombahton Massive is one of the wildest events to happen regularly in the United States. Most recently, Nada appeared as a guest on the Red Bull Music Academy’s Culture Clash in NYC and helped Trouble & Bass win the coveted title.

八月三日 MOOMBAHTON MASSIVE with DAVE NADA
有沒有搞錯?2009 年,Dave Nada 將一些電子節奏放慢,締造出一種全新的音樂風格—MOOMBAHTON。如今他朝著台灣岸邊出發,為首位在當地放 音樂的 moombahton DJ。他曾透過 Diplo’s Mad Decent label 發行唱片,而且是音樂季搗蛋王 Nadastorm 的其中一員。他的 Moombahton Party 是全美定期最狂野的盛事之一。近來,Nada 更擔任 Red Bull Music Academy 於紐約市舉辦的 Culture Clash 的嘉賓,幫助 Trouble & Bass 贏得頭銜。

WHAT the WhAT? SAMMY BANANAS (Fool’s Gold/RMBA) (September 7)

Party maestro Sammy Bananas lives up to his name by crafting ecstatic tracks that ditch trendy production tricks in favor of pure pop satisfaction. He’s already remixed the likes of Chromeo, Passion Pit, and Kid Cudi.

soundcloud.com/sammybananas

Sammy Bananas Fool’s Gold EPs High Top Fades and Braids & Fades pay tribute to the biker-shorted divas of the 1990s, chopping up their R&B hits into uptempo club tracks. The approach has already made fans out of influential BBC DJ Annie Mac and platinum producer will.i.am, who ran up to the DJ booth at Sammy’s LA show to shout “YOU made this?!?”

有沒有搞錯?九月七日SAMMY BANANAS (Fool’s Gold/RMBA)
派對之王 Sammy Bananas 果真名不虛傳,他打造出狂歡歌曲,摒棄了純粹為了迎合大眾喜好的主流製作手法。他曾將 Chromeo,Passion Pit,和 Kid Cudi 的歌曲混音。

soundcloud.com/foolsgoldrecs/se … -top-fades
soundcloud.com/foolsgoldrecs/se … ids-fades/

Sammy Bananas 由 Fool’s Gold EPs 發行的 High Top Fades 和 Braids & Fades 向九十年代穿著熱褲騎車的女歌姬致敬,將她們的 R&B 暢銷歌曲轉變為節奏較輕快的夜店音樂。這項作法已經使得深具影響力的 BBC DJ Annie Mac 和白金製作人 will.i.am 為之瘋狂,他甚至跑去 Sammy 在洛杉磯表演的 DJ 臺大喊:『這是你做的!?』

Following the release of his first fully-original tracks on the Fool’s Gold Vol 1 compilation and Telephoned, his cover-song collaboration with singer Maggie Horn (soundcloud.com/sammybananas/mig … -bananas-1

繼他在Fool’s Gold Vol 1 compilation與歌手 Maggie Horn 合作發行的首張全原創歌曲 Telephoned 之後,Sammy Bananas 發行了過去半年來最棒的歌曲之一,分別是 Miguel’s Adorn 和 the summer smash 的混音曲,和 Justin Timberlake 的Gruv Get it。

We will have an amazing selection of summer drinks including frozen margaritas and the pool favorites, mojitos and sangrias. Don’t forget about all the specials we’ll be running on shots and Red Bull drinks. And buckets…there will be a lot of buckets.
至於喝的呢?哪一個派對少了種類繁多的酒類還會完整呢?我們將會提供 Carlsberg 生啤酒來讓你退退火,還有大桶的 Sommersby Cider。我們也會有一系列超棒的夏季調酒,包括霜凍瑪格麗特和泳池的最愛,摩西多和西班牙水果酒。還有,別忘了我們一口酒和紅牛飲料都有作促銷喔。至於桶子呢,你將會看到很多的桶子。
