Forget two turntables. That’s so 2009. It’s two ipads and a Mac laptop for NYC’s enigmatic DJ duo AndrewAndrew who will be turning out the beats on May 13 at CCAD’s Fashion Show EVENT. (That’s right. I all-caps’d it).
FYI: AndrewAndrew. Not a typo. They are literally two Andrews who share a special Andrew identity—more on that in a sec, first let me tell you what they’ll be up to in Cbus.
In addition to doing their live show for the après-runway dance party, the Andrews will be producing the mix for the runway show and the pre-parties. The audience will hear stuff they recognize but haven’t heard in ages, stuff they just heard the other day, and stuff they’ve never heard before—and they’ll end up asking: who was that and where can I download it?
Two parties sandwiching a couture runway show, with custom-mixed music = EVENT.
Dubbed the ipad DJs, AndrewAndrew have been DJing (and more) around the world as well as from their Gotham homebase, where they have standing gigs online at EastVillageRadio.com (every Tuesday), and in person at the Rif Raff club on Thursdays. In addition to DJing, they video blog everything from reviews to whatever strikes their fancy. They just got back from SXSW where they reported from the HP Mobile Park. In addition to interviewing the likes of Matt & Kim, the Submarines, and Shinobi Ninja; they asked random festival goers what the HP in HP Mobile Park stood for (you just have to see it)
AndrewAndrew are also well known for their absolute and total dedication to maintaining a shared Andrew identity—same dress, same look, same first name; and no last name, hometown or any other personal details that might distinguish one Andrew from another. It is their Andrewness that got them a profile in The New York Times earlier this year.
AndrewAndrew will set the tone for the night. But if you’ve got fashion and music, you’ve got to have video. For that we’ve brought on board local VJ Rainer (DIG!), who will be joining us fresh from his stint at the Wex’s Off the Grid event. He’s been shooting for months now and will have the walls pulsating with a menagerie of imagery during the dance party.
