If you’re wondering what’s sweet in NYC this weekend (but please don’t get too sentimental, save it for Valentine’s..), you will be happy to know that the original Sheik ‘n’ Beik crew – Julio, Fong, Varick & Romainville – will be finally re-united this Saturday February 5th at Don Hill’s, Tribeca, to celebrate its 3rd anniversary. The sound by the four residents will be enhanced and shaped by James Barnes’s hypnotic video edits for a full sensory experience in true Sheik ‘n’ Beik style.
“Sheik ‘n’ Beik” started out as a weekly party in New York City, but has grown ever since, becoming a music and art installation project, with the mission to “integrate innovative and high quality music with the most cutting edge art at each event”.
Heading into their 4th year of operations, they’re now fully global, with parties in Rio de Janeiro, Beirut, Bogota & London, to name a few, and they’re considered a lifestyle by many people around the world. 2011 is looking fabulous already as they’re warming their engines up for the busiest year ever and taking off to Miami, Paris, Los Angeles & Las Vegas just in the next couple of months.
As a matter of fact, I will be playing at Sheik ‘n’ Beik Miami 2011 @ Nikki Beach, along with Martin Buttrich (Desolat/Coocon) , Behrouz (Yoshitoshi/Monique Musique), Matt Tolfrey vs. Inxec (Leftroom/Rekids), Pablo Cahn-Speyer (Cadenza/8-bit), Mikael Stavostrand (Sunset Diskos/Highgrade Records), Jeffrey Scott (Esthetik), of course Julio + Fong (Sheik ‘n’ Beik) , & several other guest performers to be announced very soon. So make sure you get your tickets: with this daytime party Sheik ‘n’ Beik, will take electronic music events to the next level of craziness..
