Follow the siren’s song and plunge deep into a blue lagoon of disco.
The merfolk, trident-wielding sea gods and beautiful ocean goddesses are collaborating with your friends at Ego Trip to create DISCO AQUATICA to get your fins flipping! So crew up with your school of afrofish, and swim out to Spin on June 8th in your most amphibious costumes. We’ll transform into sea nymphs for just one night, and together descend the waves to find glittering hidden chambers echoing with funk, and flowing disco grooves moving like a current through the sea grass.
BONDAX will deliver genre-transcendence to pull you into the depths of their futuristic electronic magic. LUXXURY merges funky bass and vintage beats with floaty vocals and the occasional synths to weave a watery spell. Justin Campbell, TK, Ramin, OFIER, DATPHAT, and Kerry Bo Berry, will all be on deck to curate the soundwaves for two rooms decked out in shimmering décor for a mystical aura, art, craft vendors and performances. So surf in on a manta ray or hitch a ride on a dolphin, and cruise through our sunken undersea disco paradise.
Mermaid, fish and disco sea mammal ensembles are encouraged, but as always, we welcome you to come as you are, your most confident, groovy, badass self.

British duo Bondax, consisting of musicians Adam Kaye and George Townsend, initially attracted interest through BBC Introducing, a system of discovering undiscovered and unsigned music, which eventually got them airtime on BBC Radio 1 from DJs Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw. The pair, hailing from Lancaster, Lancashire, released a steady flow of tracks, including “Just Smile for Me” and Baby I Got That,” which blurred lines between musical genres. Additionally, the group started their own Justus Records, with Karma Kid’s “It’s Always” as the first release.
Luxxury makes dance music for adults. Raw, funky bass-lines plucked with grown-man finesse. A mastery of keyboard and synth native only to those who lived through the late ’70s/early ’80s. Dust in the glitter that vibrates in the space between string stabs, bongo slaps, and guitar jabs—even while the steady pulse and astral effects feel beamed in from a more cybernetic future Los Angeles. That’s where the nu-disco wizard born Blake Robin dwells, of course. That is, when he isn’t on the road opening for Giorgio Moroder or the Juan MacLean; leading his dapper band on late-night TV; remixing live at DJ sets in Mexico City, New York and Berlin; or seeding his Dublab radio show/Spotify playlist Good Morning, Disco! with gems that span four decades of groove-first music. In fact, you might’ve first felt his deft touch via the controversial Luxxury Edits—where he uses the multi-tracks (stems) of classic hits to create dubby slow-disco versions—but his original music is no less arresting. After two LPs of way-finding, Luxxury has come into his own with a sound that reflects not only a newfound earnestness of expression but a lifelong love for the craft of disco.
