C.O.M.E. is a place to dance. C.O.M.E. is a place to lose yourself in
sound. C.O.M.E. is a place to feel a sense of belonging. C.O.M.E. is,
above all, is a celebration of music born out of the friendship
between two gifted producers and DJs: Fred P and JD.
C.O.M.E. threw its first party and released the C.O.M.E.
compilation on Fred P's Soul People Music label in September of 2011.
Still riding high off the success of both artistic ventures, C.O.M.E.
is excited to announce its next party on Thursday, May 31st 2012.
Taking place at The National Underground, one of Manhattan's premiere
nightclubs complete with fantastic sound and a wooden floor, the
second installment of C.O.M.E. will feature a very special headline DJ
set from Oakland's AYBEE.
If you're not already familiar with the DJ, producer, visual artist,
and owner of the Deepblak imprint, then we suggest you start reading
up and listening in! The born-and-bred Californian has released music
on some of underground house music's most respected labels from Ron
Trent's Prescription Records to DJ Jus-Ed's Underground Quality.
Deepblak is well into its eleventh year of releasing records, and it
boasts an impressive discography spanning multiple musical genres tied
together by the pillars of avant-garde and soul.
AYBEE is also an internationally renowned DJ and most recently guested
at secretsundaze's 2012 Opening Party in London during the UK's recent
Early May Bank Holiday weekend. Fred P and JD have been quoted as
being humongous fans of his "hypnotic beats with spiritual content and
beautiful melodies" for some time. Those of you who have the C.O.M.E.
compilation needn't look any further than the AYBEE & Fred P
collaboration, entitled "Sky Temples," for proof. The West Coaster's
New York City appearances are few and far between at the moment so we
urge you not to sleep on this rare opportunity to get to see him play!
Rounding out the bill are C.O.M.E. residents Jay Locke and JD.
Jay Locke has been playing records since his days working at the
city's now defunct Dancetracks record shop in the East Village.
Besides selecting and selling music to some of NYC's biggest names in
the underground scene, Jay has played at an impressive amount of local
venues throughout his two decades of DJing including: APT, Club Are,
205, Club Speed, Sapphire Lounge, Purple, Guernica, Sullivan Room,
Club Love, The Vault, Hotel Rivington, and Sub-Mercer.
JD (aka Jordan Poling) hails from Ohio and fell into working at
Brooklyn's halcyon record shop when he moved out over three years ago.
His recent productions have found their way onto the first C.O.M.E.
compilation, and he has some more releases on the way later this year.
JD's sound is highly melodic and is a reflection of a childhood rooted
in classical training. He has DJed at Konkrete Jungle NYC, Sound Noir,
Bless Up!, Sybarite Five at Lincoln Center, and many more. One half of
C.O.M.E. and a true lover of music, he is one to watch as his profile
