UPDATE from June 19, 2022: this event is postponed.
Party Office invites iconic DJs Juliana Huxtable, Jasmine Infiniti, and Slim Soledad to galvanize the dancefloor — a site for liberation through radical togetherness. Serving high energy and ravey textures, this party actively centers the joy of Black and Brown people and the safety of the FLINTA* community.
*FLINTA stands for female, lesbian, intersex, non-binary, trans* and agender people.
Using the structures of music as a medium in her multi-media universe, Juliana Huxtable is a DJ and musician singular in her approach. Where her visual art and poetry navigate the complexification of desire in a life increasingly mediated by technology, her music utilizes the sounds of technology itself to construct parallel realities to be inhabited and embodied in rhythm and harmonic tableaux. Her sets skillfully deploy the notion of sampling, and re-blogging as DJ strategies, ecstatically mixing an array of influences that frolic at the boundary of genre-intuition and experimentation. At once an assertion of freedom and an ode to the evolutionary structure of electronic music subcultures, she aspires to the sublime in what can often only be described as witchcraft behind the decks – a seance from the stage.
The Queen of Hell, Jasmine Infiniti is a New York Native whose dj roots lie in Oakland, CA. A long time-member of the House of Infiniti, Jasmine became the mother of the Bay Area Chapter, though she now resides in Brooklyn, New York. She blends dark and sometimes ambient techno and industrial sounds with break beats and cunty tracks creating a unique soundscape.
Slim Soledad was born in Guarulhos, Brasil, and currently lives in Berlin. Her body moves through the different sounds inter-passing rhythms like Baile Funk, Vogue and contemporary dances. These connections develop nuances in her body’s creative process as a performer and in her musical production. She co-founded the queer collective Chernobyl that caters to a BPOC and LGBTQIA+ audience in Brazil. About her artistic origins she says, “I think that since I was very young I have a relationship with art, I mean with music and dance mainly. I believe they were things that marked my childhood and who I am today, I remember my parents always listened to music and we always went once a month to my uncles house where they had parties and sometimes there was a “dance championship” between the adults and everyone had a lot of fun.”
ICU, a duo formed by resident artists of HyperVigilant rally with sounds that exclusively treat the needs of those living life in HD (hard dissociation) mode.
