Anyone with the vaguest interest in sparse, jangling beats, synth flourishes, handclaps and cowbells, should be familiar with DJ Spun and the label he founded, Rong Music. Few have contributed as much to the ongoing vitality of electronic music in NYC in the new millenium, or been such a welcome guest at the world’s cult house, disco and techno parties. His Promo Only imprint is credited with bringing the worldwide disco edit craze to the U.S. of A. Rong Music and their dual imprint collaboration with fellow NY dancefloor eclecticists DFA put out some of the most compelling, and carefully curated, releases of the Noughts. The parties he throws are the stuff of legend. For seven years the curator of MoMA/P.S.1’s prestigious Warm Up Music series, his All Night Rong parties with DJ Harvey and others boast a devoted following from London to Tokyo. For 20+ years his legendary DJ sets, releases and remixes on his own labels and others have seen him aligning with influential pioneers of danceable electronic music including Maceo Plex, Francois K, DJ Harvey, Daniel Wang, Stephen Hall of Arthur Russell and Loose Joints fame, Douglas J.McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb, James Chance and the Contortions, the Idjut Boys, and many more. Watch out for his latest collaborative projects “BlakSpun” with Mark Bell (aka Blakkat) and live/electronic group “Loose Control Band” with Jonah Sharp (Spacetime Contimuum, Reagenz)… So Rong: so right.
