This was no typical Saturday in Central Park. The Upper East Side was about to get christened by rave kids of all kinds and most importantly, by 1/3 of the Swedish House Mafia, Mr. Steve Angello. He brought his expertise in doing what he does best to the Size Matters event and put on one of the most memorable EDM shows New York City had seen the entire summer.
Rumsey Playfield was home to the sold out, 'Size In The Park,' with Steve Angello headlining along with mates from his Size Records, Third Party, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, AN21 and Max Vangeli. Making their NYC debut, Third Party dropped a lot of their own tracks including, "Thank You," feat. Loleatta Holloway and their remix of The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, "Otherside." An impressive set to say the least, Sunnery and Ryan created an elaborate tone playing funky house tracks that no music lover could deny. They dropped classics like Joe Brunning's "Now Let Me See You Work," and the most refreshing bootleg of the whole set, Hardwell's "Spaceman" vs. Ultra Nate's "Free.” After, AN21 and Max Vangeli hit the stage shining with a set heavy on beats with original tracks like, “People Of The Night,” (feat.Tiesto) and "Fresh Start."
Have you ever felt what it's like to be on the cusp of something huge? Something that, if nurtured, encouraged, and let run wild, will be bigger than anything you could imagine? Well, take a listen to Capital Moustache and their wall of imagined sound and you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. With the self-release of their debut album Double Ghost, Capital Moustache tears through established genres of sound and have built a fiery, powerful space all their own. The best part is all of us are welcome to live there. It's time you met the new sound of Rock 'n Roll with it's pioneers Steve Discenza (lead guitar), Tom Matarazzo (rhythm guitar), John LaPolla (bass), Jim Roden (drums), and Leann Kalpakis (vocals).
