Last Monday I went to the LYDM (Little Yellow Dance Machine) party at Sullivan Room. This was my first time going, but it’s a weekly party that started in August thrown by one of my good friends, and favorite house DJ, DJ Exacta. Sullivan Room is in Soho; kind of a discreet underground bar with a great sound system and cheap drinks… From the outside it just looks like a door with a bouncer standing outside, but go in and twist down some old cement stairs and you are in a music charged dungeon of dance…
When I went last week, I ran into a bunch of friends and old acquaintances, which was really nice, but because this party is new, and I think that a lot of people don’t know about it yet, the crowd was kind of small. However, from what my friends are saying, there are more and more people every week and as word starts spreading it is only getting better and better…
The best part about LYDM: THE MUSIC.
Because these are my best friends doing the party, of course my opinion is a bit more biased than my other blogs, but the music really is great. AND, even though I’ve been a little sick of house lately, I always love Exacta. His music is fresh, creative, and fun. Whenever and wherever I go see him spin I have an awesome time and leave happy. Also, the atmosphere at Sullivan is unpretentious and friendly, which makes it even better.
The reason I hadn’t gone to LYDM before was because I was traveling, but it’s a cool party with great music and I plan on going on a regular basis. I think this party has a lot of potential to become a cool on-going place for the club industry to unwind and/or windup on our night off! The party is every Monday night and kicks off around 11 PM.
