Hurricane Dorian may have passed the Bahamas, but behind it left a serious wake of devastation. Music cruise FriendShip, presented by AMFAMFAMF, and their partner Royal Caribbean have teamed with Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) to provide disaster relief to those in the Bahamas effected and are asking fans and friends in joining them in making a contribution.

The FriendShip issued the following statement yesterday (September 4th) via their social media platforms:


FriendShip Family,

The Bahamas graciously hosts our festival and provides hospitality to FriendShip each year. Our thoughts are with them in Hurricane Dorian’s aftermath. We want to donate more than thoughts to our Friends in need. We’ve done our research on the best route to go; thankfully, we did not have to look far.

Our cruise line partner Royal Caribbean has teamed up with the Pan American Development Foundation (PADF) to provide disaster relief to our Bahamian neighbors and friends in this time of need. Royal Caribbean will be using their ships to help transport food and supplies to the Bahamas.

They have agreed to match all donations to $500,000. We’re asking our blossoming community to donate to this cause as we are committed to reciprocating the love back to our Bahamian friends!

Friends, let’s come together and do our part to show our support!

Donate here: http://bit.ly/FriendShipDorianSupport

With love,
FriendShip Team

AMFAMFAMF presents FRIENDSHIP is a world-class music cruise experience taking place January 6-10, 2020 aboard Royal Carribeans’ Navigator Of The Seas. For more information, log on to www.thefriendship.com.

Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, in partnership with Tomorrowland, bring their famed Garden of Madness spectacle to the United States for an exclusive one-off show at The New York Expo Center (1110 Oak Point Ave, Bronx, NY) on Saturday, November 2. Co-produced with DEG Presents & Fearhouse NYC, this debut U.S. edition of Garden of Madness will be the Belgian brothers only event of its type in the country in 2019. Additional special guests to be announced in the coming weeks.

Over the past six years brothers Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have carved themselves into the history of electronic music with show-after-show of jaw dropping stage presence and performances. Launched back in 2016, and formerly known as Bringing The Madness, the duo’s end of year Garden of Madness homecoming extravaganza has become something of a must-do event in the December clubbing calendar for hundreds of thousands of fans from around the world. For 2019 the brothers will be back with Tomorrowland Presents Garden of Madness. Expect mammoth sized shenanigans with the levels of insanity turned up to gargantuan.

Says Dmitri Vegas, “It’s been amazing building this brand over the past six years together with Tomorrowland to now further expand all over the world is a dream come true.”

“It’s really exciting to be working with Nick and the Tomorrowland team. They’re absolute professionals. New York City is in for a real treat on Halloween weekend,” adds DEG Presents President Eddie Dean.

A long-established concept that has been an integral part of Tomorrowland festival since 2014, Garden of Madness has also had three triumphant seasons at Ushuaia Ibiza with its weekly Tuesday residency. Following what has been a wildly successful period in Tomorrowland and Garden of Madness history, which has seen both brands collaborate to celebrate the Tomorrowland festivals 15 years, the entire team behind both events want to close 2019 in the most mind-blowing way possible. With that in mind, every aspect of the Garden of Madness concept’s detail and curation are being meticulously reviewed and redesigned to ensure that each arena show goes above and beyond any and all expectations.

After the U.S. show, the production team behind Tomorrowland will cross the Atlantic landing in Liverpool for a special show at the Steel Yard on December 7. In partnership with Creamfields and taking charge of one of the festivals most iconic and respectable stages in the Steel Yard, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike will bring a bigger and bolder show than ever seen before. The tour will then conclude at the Sportpaleis Antwerp arena on December 20 and 21 in what is set to be an unmissable show aligned with a string of special guests and numerous eye-opening surprises.

Devotees of the Garden of Madness mantra can still expect Amare (the much-loved eagle) to be a central fixture at all shows. So please, join us to close the chapter on 2019 and celebrate another year of crazy parties as Tomorrowland Presents Garden of Madness 2019

MAD DECENT & MADE EVENT PRESENTS
HIGHER GROUND
WITH DIPLO

SIDEPIECE, DATELESS, LP GIOBBI, ANDEN, FUNDIDO AND LUKEWARM
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 AT THE BROOKLYN MIRAGE

TICKETS ON SALE NOW

Higher Ground is taking over The Brooklyn Mirage on Sunday, September 22. Curated by Mad Decent, the night of house music will feature Diplo, Walker & Royce, Paul Woolford, Huxley, Golf Clap, SIDEPIECE, Dateless, LP Giobbi, Anden, Fundido and Lukewarm. Tickets available HERE.

Named after Diplo’s recent deep house-inspired Higher Ground EP and corresponding new house imprint, Higher Ground is a platform to showcase both established and up-and-coming talent in house music, and a new home for Diplo’s own house tracks and collaborations. Aiming to transcend a singular sound or subgenre, Higher Ground represents everything from tech-house to deep/melodic house, lo-fi to Afro-infused house, and everything in between.

“House is where it all came from. Everything we know and love as dance music today started with the masters in Chicago & Detroit almost forty years ago,” Diplo says. “The genre has always been incredibly important to me, and Higher Ground is our homage to the legends and opportunity to champion new sounds and artists from around the world pushing the genre forward.”

The first Higher Ground label release is a double-single by Brooklyn-based house duo and September 22 performers Walker & Royce titled “Rave Grave,” out tomorrow (Sept. 4) and available for pre-order here. Look for other upcoming offerings from label-boss Diplo and mysterious new duo SIDEPIECE.

About DIPLO:

Diplo, born Thomas Wesley Pentz, is one of the most dynamic forces in music today under his own name, as well as a member of the now legendary Major Lazer, LSD with Sia and Labrinth—which has tallied more than a billion streams and just released its debut album, and Silk City with Mark Ronson— whose “Electricity” with Dua Lipa topped charts worldwide and won a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. As the world’s most in-demand producer, Diplo has worked with artists as disparate as Beyoncé, Bad Bunny and Turnstile. The past year has seen the release of three EPs, the continent-inspired EP Europa and California, inspired by his sometimes-home base of Los Angeles, and the deep house-inspired Higher Ground that was followed by a brand-new show production at Diplo’s Coachella headline set. He continues to tour the world over.

Latroit Launches Video for “Nice (Twice As Nice)” ft. B4NG B4NG and LOOMIS (As Featured in iPhone’s Worldwide Ad Campaign) by Brian Rapaport

image2.jpg

GRAMMY-AWARD WINNING PRODUCER LATROIT
LAUNCHES VIDEO FOR
“NICE (TWICE AS NICE)” (AS FEATURED IN THE WORLDWIDE iPHONE CAMPAIGN)
FEATURING LA URBAN ARTISTS B4NG B4NG & LOOMIS

VIEW THE VIDEO NOW HERE

Earlier this summer, Apple revealed the international TV spot for the “That’s iPhone” marketing campaign introducing its FaceID component featuring the song “Nice” by GRAMMY Award-winning producer Latroit (Dennis White). Latroit updated the song further for the summer featuring vocals by urban artists B4NG B4NG & LOOMIS titled “Nice (Twice As Nice).” Today (August 22), he has made available its corresponding video.

View it now here: https://youtu.be/8UhodWgPCl8 

The video -- directed by Latroit as a hybrid of polished and BTS footage--was shot at the ragdoll pink palace, a life-size dollhouse in West Hollywood and the backdrop of the recent shoot for LIZZO in Playboy. Featuring B4NG B4NG and LOOMIS alongside Latroit, it’s a strong visual presentation for the soulful downtempo dance track with 90’s throwback rap performance. Also making an appearance in the video is Spike, a Los Angeles based fine artist, drag performer and winner Mr. Precinct leather 2018 and first running up Mr. Los Angeles Leather 2018 and actor/ model and pop culture personality Ashleigh Morghan.

B4NG B4NG (pronounced Bang Bang) is part of the House of Latroit stable -- an artist discovery collective founded by Dennis White (Latroit) with the idea being that Latroit utilizes the platform of his successes to help nurture the early stage careers of emerging artists including Australian vocalist Charlz, DJ/producers Ghastly, Sullivan King, i_o and rapper B4NG B4NG who is featured on “Nice”.

B4NG B4NG is also known as Germfree, an East LA-based underground battle rap champion who has appeared in six episodes of The Cypher Effect. She was discovered by Slash (GnR) and Boondock Saints director Troy Duffy, resulting in the B4NG B4NG/ Slash video and release “Punch Drunk Lover”, and appears with Xzbit in the legendary rappers 2019 directional debut Broken Ground.

Her friend, emerging R&B artist, model, and Valley Girl LOOMIS has performed with Salt n Pepa, Snoop Dogg, Lisa Lisa, Bone Thugs and Harmony on the Bobby Dee Presents tour.

The “That’s iPhone” marketing campaign introducing its Face ID component features a man napping peacefully on a lounger in his garden, woken up with a series of iMessages. By just raising his face, he’s able to unlock the phone and read the incoming message. The entire 30-second spot--aptly titled “Nap”--is set to the 70’s inspired slow jam that is Latroit’s “Nice”. View it here: https://youtu.be/1eQ6n9uZ8Ls  

Variety checked in with Latroit for their “Songs For Screens” columns: https://variety.com/2019/music/news/songs-for-screens-producer-latroit-apple-nap-1203293798/

Available now on all DSP’s, “Nice” and its vocal counterpart “Nice (Twice As Nice)” are fine additions to the repertoire of composer and performer Latroit. The Los Angeles-based musician who hails originally from Detroit created a soulful piece of music that sets the mood just right. Check out “Nice” and “Nice” (Twice As Nice) now at https://smarturl.it/qgi50g.

About Latroit:
Dennis White (aka LATROIT) is a GRAMMY™ Award winning producer, composer and performer with ARIA and BPI certified gold, platinum and double platinum selling records, over twenty top 10 Billboard Club Chart tracks & remixes, and dozens of TV & Film placements.  His place in the annals of dance music history is assured by his work with the pioneering Detroit techno group Inner City, his release “Happy People” as Static Revenger (charted by Fatboy Slim as one of the top 10 songs of that decade), DJ tours through five continents, and the recent oeuvre of Latroit releases, notably  highlighted by the 2018 GRAMMY™ Award for ‘Best Remixed Recording’ - Depeche Mode “You Move” (Latroit Remix). Although no stranger to releases on the world’s preeminent independent and major labels, the Berklee College of Music graduate runs his own label imprint, House of Latroit, hosts the bi-monthly podcast House of Latroit. Both of these endeavors support his passion for discovering and promoting emerging musical talent from around the world. From an early start in the Detroit underground to the critical embrace of his current collection of work, Latroit’s music holds history in one hand and the future in the other.

SLANDER and Kompany Team Up On New Single "Broken" ft fknsyd - Out Now On Never Say Die by Brian Rapaport

image1 (2).png

SLANDER AND KOMPANY TEAM UP ON
NEW HEART-THROBBING SINGLE “BROKEN” FT. FKNSYD

OUT TODAY (AUGUST 16) ON NEVER SAY DIE RECORDS

LISTEN NOW HERE.

image2 (2).png

Los Angeles based electronic music duo SLANDER teams up with dubstep prodigy KOMPANY for their new heart throbbing bass heavy anthem “Broken” featuring FKNSYD out today, Friday, August 16 via Never Say Die Records.

“Broken” is an electrifying and gut-punching record with a smooth melodic touch, bridging with powerful vocals along with massive energy throughout the anthem.

Listen now HERE.

About SLANDER:
SLANDER’s dedication to their craft and the development of their own unique sound has earned them support from the likes of Skrillex, DJ Snake, Excision, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson and more. Amongst dozens of chart-topping remixes, their original Heaven Trap hit “Love Again” featuring vocalist WAVZ has been listened to over 10 million times while being championed by Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint. Beyond building a remarkable name for themselves through jaw-dropping anthems and massive collaborations, SLANDER can also include “label heads” to their resume. The LA-based duo recently teamed up with their good friend NGHTMRE to turn their popular Gud Vibrations track into an official record label. Attesting their dynamic nature as artists, SLANDER’s productions range from cinematic and melodic to bone jarring and foot stomping, always with a common thread of sophisticated soundscapes and captivating energy which they will bring to some of the biggest festival brands in the U.S. this summer. While being in the midst of massive releases, SLANDER is gearing up for a tremendous end of the year with their co-headlining upcoming Alchemy Tour along with NGHTMRE, Seven Lions, and The Glitch Mob. The tour will be making various stops in cities such as Long Beach CA, San Diego CA, Portland OR, and more. Check out the full tour and grab tickets here.

About Kompany:
Kompany has emerged from the shadows of anonymity to present one of the more promising up and coming bass music acts. Having perfected his craft in the esteemed halls of IconCollective, Kompany is now bringing his music to a global audience. Blending versatile sound design with aggressive forms of bass music, Kompany is now a force to be reckoned with.

About FKNSYD:
Besides having a sparse amount of social media accounts, including a Twitter featuring a blurry profile photo, there isn’t much in terms of concrete information or even a noticeable bio to pluck some facts or anecdotes from. If there is one thing known about fknsyd aka Sydney, is that her brand of music is extremely interesting. The first thing that could be said about fknsyd is that her style sounds a lot like the original incarnation of Crystal Castles, down to the often obtuse and somewhat disturbing electronic compositions that seems to be the calling card of the Witch House genre. Even her wispy vocals eerily recall a younger Alice Glass. If Crystal Castles is her influence, fknsyd is a worthy torchbearer to the legacy of the legendary electro group.

With influence ranging from deadmau5 and UMEK to techno’s most underground, i_o is poised to take over the world’s main stages with driving sets that grasp and don’t let go.

His latest, a dark and suspenseful four-track EP titled House of God out now on deadmau5’ label mau5trap, has taken over dance floors with its pulsing vocals and driving bass lines. The EP has solidified i_o’s signature heavy sound in the forefront of dance music’s most exciting new arrivals. With prolific releases on mau5trap, co-signs from deadmau5, Above & Beyond and JAUZ, along with highly anticipated appearances at Creamfields and Electric Zoo (fans also caught his mesmerizing sets earlier this year at Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival), as well as direct support slots on deadmau5’ CUBEV3 tour in Dallas, Los Angeles and elsewhere to be announced very soon, expect to see i_o everywhere.

Says i_o, “In  2017, deadmau5 brought Cube 2.1 to LA for a few shows. A friend took me to one of the nights and we were lucky enough to get to go to the Factory 93 warehouse after party. I was producing under a variety of projects at the time but that night, seeing deadmau5 in his full form with the cube, followed by him in a warehouse ripping through a two-hour techno set was enough to kick start me into taking the leap with the i_o project. Two years later I’m in my own element, excited to be joining forces on the cubev3 tour.”

i_o in the press:

“Possession’ is one of those tracks so good that you might actually have to stop dancing for a second when you hear it at the club, just to spend a moment in awe of everything that’s happening. The melodic trance banger by Los Angeles-based producer i_o launches with a signature kick drum, to which is added frenetic beat layer; then subtract the kick drum, add a very Green Velvet-style vocal, add the kick drum back in and ride it out for a minute before a siren synth takes the entire operation to the next level. Coming from i_o’s for track House of God EP, our today via mau5trap, ‘Possession’ is dark, massive and entirely undeniable.” — Billboard Dance

“i_o brings techno to another level…” – EDM Sauce

“At the intersection of defiance and progression, close to the precipice of looming darkness and rising from the depths of the cyber realm stands i_o. The enigmatic producer has built an undeniable reputation with his progressive techno stances, carving out slices of robust bass lines and melodic chords for underground pleasure.” — Earmilk

“Beneath the seams of the overabundance of happy-go-lucky EDM, there lies the realm of i_o’s House of God EP. Raising techno demons from the depths of the mau5trap label, i_o brings us his biggest and darkest EP release to date.” — EDM Tunes

“i_o’s House of God EP makes us believers.” — NOISEPRN

House of God spans a large expanse of the techno genre in just four tracks, from the melodic to the groovy. A true representation of i_o’s production prowess.” — CULTR

About KAYZO:

Huston-born, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ KAYZO, née Hayden Capuozzo, is one of the fastest-rising electronic artists of this decade. His versatile sound—high energy melodies bestrewn with pummeling beats—defies genres and challenges sonic boundaries: in one single song, he’ll traverse heavy metal via shredding guitar solos, dubstep-heavy bass, hardstyle-fueled aggression, and hypnotizing psytrance loops. His flexibility as a producer has earned him official releases with all the top dogs in electronic music and has garnered him collaborations with and remix duties for electronic giants like DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, and SLANDER, among many others. Taking the electronic-rock hybrid to new ground, he remixed the 2000 alt-metal smash hit “Last Resort” from nu metal icons Papa Roach. Dubbed a “real smasher” by Billboard, the remix has amassed more than 13 million Spotify streams. Elsewhere, the dubstep monster “Wake Up,” his collaboration with RIOT, counts more than 20 million streams on Spotify, with an additional 3 million on SoundCloud. His bass-fluid, shape shifting sound and bold take on production has come to define KAYZO’s electrifying style and creatively experimental direction, as best captured on OVERLOAD, his debut artist album. Released January 2018 on his own Welcome Records imprint, distributed by Ultra Music, and counting more than 7 million streams on Spotify alone, OVERLOAD encapsulates the new KAYZO sound: a stimulating, cross-genre blend of rock theatrics and electronic futurism. A taste maker in his own right, KAYZO founded his own artist-run imprint, Doghouse Recordings, in 2016, which he later relaunched as Welcome Records in 2017. He also hosts his biweekly Doghouse Radio show, which airs every other Friday at 4pm PT/7pm ET on SiriusXM Channel 730 as part of Insomniac Radio. Recognized as one of Billboard Dance’s 100 Artists of 2019, KAYZO is today a bona fide global act.

SLANDER upcoming Tour Dates by Brian Rapaport

image1.png

SLANDER’s dedication to their craft and the development of their own unique sound has earned them support from the likes of Skrillex, DJ Snake, Excision, Bassnectar, Porter Robinson and more. Amongst dozens of chart-topping remixes, their original Heaven Trap hit “Love Again” featuring vocalist WAVZ has been listened to over 10 million times while being championed by Diplo’s Mad Decent imprint.

Beyond building a mint name for themselves through jaw-dropping original productions and massive collaborations, SLANDER also include “label heads” to their resume. The LA-based duo recently turned their popular Gud Vibrations brand into an official record label with good friend NGHTMRE ensuring their legions of fans that their famous GUD VIBES are only getting started. Based on their Mad Decent released single “Gud Vibrations”, best friends NGHTMRE and SLANDER decided to build their brand together, supporting good music, good friendships, and good vibes. Their GV brand has seen exponential growth with a world-wide audience. Back to back sellout nights headlining the Hollywood Palladium was quickly followed by selling out the NOS event center with 10,000 fans while at the same time taking the dance music scene by storm with the first appearance of their new mind-blowing stage production, “The Atom”. In 2017 and 2018 they took “THE ATOM” to sold out shows at Red Rocks, as well as curating their own stage with it at Nocturnal Wonderland.

Attesting to their dynamic nature as artists, SLANDER’s productions range from cinematic and melodic to bone-jarring and foot-stomping, always with a common thread of sophisticated soundscapes and captivating energy which they will bring to some of the biggest festival brands around the world this summer.

Later on, over Labor Day Weekend (September 1), SLANDER and NGHTMRE will present the Gud Vibrations stage at New York’s largest and longest running electronic music festival Electric Zoo. The stage will highlight performances from both acts along with other artists especially curated by them including GTA, Boogie T & Squanto, WAVEDASH, Shadient and more.

Immediately following Electric Zoo, the duo will set off with NGHTMRE on their co-headlining “The Alchemy Tour” alongside Seven Lions and the Glitch Mob. A massive undertaking produced by Live Nation brings this stacked show to arenas, amphitheaters, and more for a once-in-a-generation alliance of four artistic powerhouses, will kick off September 4th in Charlotte, NC. and make stops in Pittsburgh, Austin, The Gorge in Seattle, Shorline Amphitheater in San Francisco and more before wrapping October 13th in Phoenix, AZ. The duo will re-engage “The Atom” production for the tour. Tickets are on sale now at LiveNation.com

About MSTRKRFT:
MSTRKRFT (pronounced “master kraft”) are the alter ego of Death from Above 1979’s Jesse F. Keeler along with producer AP-P. Hailing from Toronto, the duo makes a move from DFA 1979’s abrasive rock to robotic electronic complete with vocoders and handclaps. In addition to releasing two single (“Easy Love”, and “Work on You”) and an LP in July 2006 on Last Gang Records, MSTRKRFT have remixed several buzz bands such as Metric, Wolfmother, the Kills, and Bloc Party, As their profile grew (and their album was re-released by Modular) they also begun remixing bigger names like Kylie Minogue, Usher, and John Legend, as well as more pop-leaning artists like Annie and Jess McCartney. For their second album, 2009’s Fist of God, the duo jumped to Dim Mak/Downtown and scored guest appearances from Ghostface Killah and E-40. The album spawned two hits with John Legend (“Heartbreaker”) and N.O.R.E (“Bounce”). A DFA reunion would keep Keeler busy in the years between MSTRKRFT releases, and the duo would not reappear until 2016 when they released their third album Operator. The duo currently have a stripped down pure techno sound and are busy releasing new singles on their own new imprint, Oro Records.

About KAYZO:
Huston-born, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ KAYZO, née Hayden Capuozzo, is one of the fastest-rising electronic artists of this decade. His versatile sound—high energy melodies bestrewn with pummeling beats—defies genres and challenges sonic boundaries: in one single song, he’ll traverse heavy metal via shredding guitar solos, dubstep-heavy bass, hardstyle-fueled aggression, and hypnotizing psytrance loops. His flexibility as a producer has earned hum official releases with all the top dogs in electronic music and has garnered him collaborations with and remix duties for electronic giants like DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, and SLANDER, among many others. Taking the electronic-rock hybrid to new ground, remixed the 2000 alt-metal smash hit “Last Resort” from mu metal icons Papa Roach. Dubbed a “real smasher” by Billboard, the remix has amasses more than 17 million Spotify streams. Elsewhere, the dub-step monster “Wake Up,” his collaboration with RIOT, counts more than 21 million streams on Spotify, with an additional 3 million on SoundCloud. His bass-fluid, shape shifting sound and bold take on production has come to define KAYZO’s electrifying style and creatively experimental direction, as best captured on OVERLOAD, his debut artist album. Released January 2018 on his own Welcome Records imprint, distributed by Ultra Music, OVERLOAD encapsulated the new KAYZO sound: a stimulating, cross-genre blend of rock theatrics and electronic futurism. A taste maker in his own right, KAYZO founded his own artist-run imprint, Doghouse Recordings in 2016 which he later relaunched as Welcome Records in 2017. He also hosts his biweekly Doghouse Radio show, which airs every other Friday at 4pm PT/7pm ET on SiriusXM Channel 730 as part Insomniac Radio. Recognized as one of Billboard Dance’s 100 Artists of 2019, KAYZO is today a bona fide global act.

WITH ERIC PRYDZ, GREEN VELVET, JORIS VOORN, YOTTO, CHRISTOPH, BEN BOHMER (LIVE), AND MISS JENNIFER

TICKETS ON SALE NOW HERE.

Eric Prydz’s Pryda alias and label has become one of the most influential and respected names in progressive house music. Celebrating its fifteenth anniversary in 2019, Pryda is proud to present an eclectic line-up for his stage at NYC’s largest and longest running electronic music festival Electric Zoo. In addition to a special set from Eric Prydz, the Pryda Arena stage happening on Saturday, August 31 will also feature Green Velvet, Joris Voorn, Yotto, Christoph, Ben Bohmer (live), and Miss Jennifer.

Synonymous with immaculately produced and unique sounding electronic music, Prydz—a platinum selling producer— is responsible for some of the biggest progressive house tracks of the last decade, not to mention some of the most technically impressive live shows of any touring artist. Pryda is Prydz’s most well-known alias, one whose sound is replicated endlessly in dance music. Listen to the discographies of any current electronic music success and you can hear Pryda’s influence—the ‘Pryda sound,’ comprised of immaculately layered melodies and harmonies, is now almost a sub-genre unto itself. Pryda’s origins can be traced back to 2004, with the releases of “Aftermath (2005), “Muramyi” (2007) and “Pjanoo” (2008) solidifying the Pryda name within the new breed of progressive house. The 2012 release of the three-disc album Eric Prydz Presents Pryda offers a full retrospective of one dance music’s most storied discographies.

ELECTRIC ZOO: EVOLVED takes place over Labor Day Weekend August 31, September 1 & 2
at Randall’s Island Park in New York City.
