This Friday, December 6th, your favorite GDD™ DJs will be invading “the cellar” of Sankeys – one of the world’s biggest names in clubbing – spankin’ new New York City home. Bones, Burn Unit, and Troy Kurtz, joined by a few of our New York friends and family, who also happened to join us when we curated the Wide Awake Art Car for Electric Daisy Carnival NYC earlier this year, Kromo & Vish, as well as Sean Glass.
Having recently had the chance to do a walk-through of the venue during daylight hours, let me just say that I can’t wait to see this place with the lights down low, packed with beautiful, drunk, sweaty people and filled with loud, pumping, sexy music.
We couldn’t feel more privileged to be aligning with our friends behind NYC’s notorious Party For No Reason events and such a storied franchise in Sankeys, world-reknown for being purveyors of cutting-edge music at their Manchester, UK location (voted in recent years as the #1 club in the world by DJ Mag) and their Ibiza outpost (which hosted the Dirtybird weekly residency this summer, among other things).
Oh, and the best part? Simply RSVP via email to
RSVP@partyfornoreason.com for FREE admission!
We’ll see you underground.

To celebrate the kickstart of our partnership w/ LURE and iHeartComix, we wanted to catch up with the opening night headliner and our personal homie, Clockwork. This Sunday, October 13th, Clockwork joins Just Blaze, Franki Chan and our very own BONES to open up the new iHeartComix Sundays @ LURE. Now, we were going to ask some serious questions and be professional but thats boring and we’d rather have some fun for your own enjoyment (and keep it nice and quick for all you space cadets).
