Silence

Silence @ Ace Hotel proudly presents a rich assortment of exhilarating dance tracks, from dub to deep house, transmitted soundlessly to you and hundreds of enraptured dancers. Take off your headphones and there is complete silence. The dilemma becomes which of our 3 masterful DJs does one listen to? @ Silence, the pulse and resonance of any particular color (red, blue, & green – for each DJ), is determined by each attendee’s decision to switch on to that photosonic cloud, enabled by a simple click on the headset. Each unique experience informs that of the collective, on mute.

Alex Harrington
When it comes down to expertly spinning Nu Disco and Deep House, no one does it quite like DJ and producer Alex Harrington, based out here in the Coachella Valley. Since launching his career in 2012, Alex has concertedly cultivated his sound and craftsmanship, while singularly remaining true to the distinct sub-genres of Nu Disco and Deep House. Today, his repertoire spans an impressive catalogue of original tracks and remixes, his own record label Daiquiri Hawk, social media management for German-based record label Nu Disco Your Disco, as well as holding court in an array of hip venues and festivals, including Coachella ’15. Thank us later.

DJ beatnick

DJ Beatnick
While the breath and scope of his sound might astound even the initiated, it is more accurate to say that DJ Beatnick has truly mastered the art of ‘bringing it’. Beatnick’s lifelong passion for rare vinyl and turntablism has translated into a sophisticated assortment of trip hop, funk, rare groove, and rich soulful house mixes. Playing at the trendiest hotels and clubs in New York, San Diego, and Las Vegas, DJ Beatnick has uniquely refined this robust sound, while never ceasing to push the envelope.

DJ Dash Eye

Dash Eye
Dash Eye has been unflaggingly spinning solid reggae with the Tribe of Kings since 1998 and is as proficient mixing vintage one-drop and culture sound as he is stirring the dance crowd into a frenzy with the latest jump-up and classic dancehall tracks. Dash Eye has carved a distinct reputation over the ensuing years, playing alongside multiple sound-systems from Mexico to Israel, as well as legends like Carlton Livingston, Brigadier Jerry, and Sister Nancy. He currently coanchors the monthly Stronghold Reggae party at Ace hotel Palm Springs, holding strong since 2010. This is the original selector…come ready for the get down.

ISTHISIT is an electrifying collaboration between founders Nero Akpowowo and Trevor “Guy Worden” to curate exclusive soirées and artistic performances for Palm Springs California.

Partly inspired by The Stroke’s groundbreaking debut studio album of the same name, ISTHISIT poses a rhetorical query of über-commercialized nightlife, and seeks to bring bona fide ultra dance culture to this exquisite desert oasis.

Our first collaboration is with Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs, for a series of monthly silent parties on the 3rd Friday of each month beginning June 17th, 2016 at Ace Hotel Commune from 10pm – 3am. Accordingly, ISTHISIT proudly presents Silence @ Ace Hotel.

The crux of this event centers on 3 adroit DJs simultaneously spinning expertly-curated Nu Disco/ Soulful Deep House, Funk/ Trip Hop/ Rare Groove, & Roots Reggae/ World Beat Fusion, on 3 wireless, color-synchronized stations. The enchantment arises from the photomechanical effect of hundreds  of guests with luminescent, color-coordinated headsets, dancing silently and responding soundlessly to the primal mysticism of group dance. It is both silent and noisy, modern yet primeval, all at once.  Come ready for non-stop dance.
