(NEW YORK) Brooklyn-based electronic dreampop act Mahogany are stepping out into the sultry May nighttime with a weekly DJ residency at Ace Hotel New York, complete with release party finale for Mahogany’s long-awaited record “Electric Prisms.”
The spring residency, hosted by Mahogany’s Andrew Prinz and Jaclyn Slimm, promises more of a curated romantic journey, at once familiar as it might be atmospheric. Like Mahogany’s compositions, Prinz and Slimm’s selections draw lines of sonic similarity between such allegedly unrelated acts as ELO and Cocteau Twins, or Nico and Jane Birkin — yet the duo lace together contemporisms any vinyl enthusiast would find luxurious to hear — as represented on the Ace’s custom sound system, no less.
With special guest DJ sets by Tamaryn, Skye Skjelset (Fleet Foxes) and others TBA, Mahogany’s residency culminates with a live performance on Tuesday, May 27th in the Ace Hotel for the official “Electric Prisms” release party. Limited numbers of the latest release will be available, as well as pre-orders for vinyl and other editions.
