TURNTABLES ON THE HUDSON
Pledge Drive Special
We will be focusing on TOTH releases and artists too many to name. World Music for the next genreation featuring Originals, Remixes, and Collaborations from across the globe.
"TEN YEARS FLOATING DOWN THE HUDSON... For the tens of thousands of people that have journeyed to piers, boats and clubs during that time—not to mention the global audience they have acquired—a real transformation occurs. Whatever you bring inside is, during the course of hours of an organic, electronic hypnosis, turned into something shared by everyone around you. This is why the party has lasted, will last much longer: it is a community free of judgments and restrictions. With so many influences behind Turntables on the Hudson, it’s easy to see why everyone feels at home. In a place where any music that moves you is not only welcomed but encouraged, there’s room for everyone. That’s part of the magic—that’s the heart of the magic. It is political in that no one is excluded; it is social in that lasting bonds are constantly formed..."

With the addition of Groove Collective founding member Nappy G on percussion, the party became an adventurous, young, free-spirited community known for its eclectic musical blend.

After ten years, the TOTH parties are now taking place Fridays at the Water Taxi Beach in Long Island City overlooking Manhattan and the East River.
