Cazals in NYC

Cazals made their 2nd US appearance this past Thursday 11.6.08 in NYC at Hiro Ballroom with their label mates Fires of Rome. The:Hours Showcase was fantastic. Fires of Rome opened up the night and had the crowd going. Cazals came on and were super tight and left quite an impression on the crowd even though they were missing their keyboardist, once again. I was most impressed with how bombastically badass Warren the drummer is in keeping the band together. The entire rhythm section was super tight and are able to stop on a dime. Highlights of the set were “Both Sides” and “New Boy In Town”.

I hung out with boys after the show and headed to the Beatrice Inn where Luca spun a fantastic Italo Disco set. He dropped tracks like Azoto’s “San Salvador”, New Order’s “Blue Monday”, Chic’s “I Want Your Love” and of course Rick James’ “Super Freak” along with other amazing tracks from circa ’77 to ’81.

Azoto – San Salvador

Friday night Luca spun a heavy techno/fidget house set at The Annex where he apparently killed it.

Saturday night I met up with the guys and took Daniel and Luca around downtown NYC. I then met up with the rest of the guys at Le Poisson Rouge where Luca spun a great set including Federico Franchi’s “Cream” and SebastiAn’s “Motor”. We all then headed over to The Annex where Luca stepped up to the decks once again to close out the night with some electro bangers. He opened with Soulwax’s remix of Phantom Pt II which got the crowds attention. He dropped tracks like Boys Noize remix of Cuy Copy, Tiga’s remix of The Human League, Lifelike’s remix of “Somebody, Somewhere” and once again the amazing “Super Freak” by Rick James.

All the guys in Cazals and The:Hours, along with all their friends are super down to earth, chill people who all genuinely love music. They are all musical encyclopedias. Thanks to everyone at The:Hours, The Annex and the gentlemen in Cazals for showing me an awesome time. Expect a lot of great stuff from The:Hours and Cazals in the near future. Cheers 🙂
