THURSDAYS WITH RAZOR-N-TAPE

  • 7:00 pm - 12:00 am | Thursday July 27, 2023
  • The Lobby | Ace Hotel Brooklyn

Every Thursday this Summer, Razor-N-Tape curates the line-up.  This week, they invite Aaron Dae.

 

Aaron’s versatility as a DJ, promoter and label owner have kept him at the forefront of underground dance music since 1994. As co-head of Razor-N-Tape, his musical sensibility has helped shaped the sound of some of the most respected underground disco and deep house to come out of New York City in the past 10 years.

 

 

Razor-N-Tape is a Brooklyn-based independent record label, brand, and DJ alias of co-owners JKriv and Aaron Dae. Brought together out of a mutual love of all things groovy, the pair founded their eponymous record label in 2012, building a nearly 100-release-deep catalog over the past 9 years that has helped shape the sound of modern NYC disco.
Originally launched as a home for unreleased reworks that had been mainstays of the duo’s DJ sets, Razor-N-Tape white label boasts releases from revered editors such as Dimitri from Brooklyn (aka Paris), Danny Krivit, Eli Escobar, Al Kent and many more, and has established the label as the gold standard for quality output in the edit game. RNT’s expansion to include their Razor-N-Tape Reserve and RNT45 imprints saw new forays into sampled house, downtempo, and global soul with offerings from Don Carlos, Felipe Gordon, The Juan MacLeanBlack Science OrchestraCOEOJungle Fire and many more.
Now celebrating their milestone 10 year anniversary, the focus has shifted primarily to original music and artist development. Stunning projects like the recent modern Brazilian jazz-funk LP “Palago,” buy artist GuinuMidnight Magic “Beam Me Up Remixed,” BaianaSystem “Agua Remixes,” and Elia y Elizabeth “Remixes de Oro” releases have brought new depth to the catalog and remix contributions from Prins ThomasJimpsterKim Ann Foxman. With all-original album and EP projects from JKriv, Underground SystemFelipe Gordon, and more on the way, Razor-N-Tape is making their mark on the dance scene and beyond as purveyors of exceptional new original sounds.
JKriv and Aaron are both DJs in their own right, and together as Razor-N-Tape their approach is an effortless blend of old and new, sequenced and mixed with expertise and a signature feel-good style, whether in the club or broadcast. From Aaron’s deep roots in NYC’s club and rave scene of the 1990s, to JKriv’s musical foundation both as a producer and guitarist/bassist in the bands Escort and Tortured Soul, the pair amalgamates a huge breadth of musical knowledge, a shared sense of curation, and an abiding love of the party!
