Trinidadian Deep (Native Rebel)

The Silver Room Block party continues from the Main Stage on 53rd Street to the Dance Floor of The Promontory...

The headliners need no introduction as they have rocked the Silver Room Block Party and the Promontory before. You already know they are the Creme de La Creme on the underground music tip...continuing with the Chicago to NY connection...

The opening DJ here you should take note of. Trinidadian Deep has made a choice to stay underground. He's been making some of the illest deep house jams for a while. Many of these have been released on Ron Trent's Prescription / Future Vision Label and also Volcov's Neroli amongst others. 

Come Early, if you want to experience the almost lost art of 'warming up the room'.

Born in the Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn, Fred Brathwaite aka FAB 5 FREDDY began his artistic career creating graffiti pieces throughout New York City. In homage to Andy Warhol, Fab Freddy covered a subway car with Campbell’s soup cans, creating a classic of subway graffiti art. Moving on to painting on canvas, FAB 5 FREDDY exhibited work both here and abroad. His work created a bridge between the rising hip hop movement in Harlem and the Downtown New York art scene. Along with friendships with fellow artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Harring, he has worked with pop culture icons ranging from Blondie to Queen Latifah, as well as appearing in films and televions shows such as Law & Order: Criminal Intent as well producing films such as Wild Style. (biography courtesy of Gallery 151)


Born in New York City, now longterm Chicago resident, Robert Williams have been credited as a major component in the history of House music, having owned the famous venues 'The Warehouse' and 'Muzic Box' in Chicago City.

20 Years of Rush Hour: Antal & Ron Trent

Saturday, September 30th • Bar opens 8PM, Green Room 9PM, Club 10PM

We celebrate 20 years of Rush Hour, the renowned Dutch record label and distributor based in Amsterdam, with label co-founder Antal and Chicago's Ron Trent. 

Antal has gained acclaim not only through the running of his label, but also through his incredible and diverse record collection on display in his DJ sets. Ron Trent is a legend of house music in his own right, having made his mark on dance music history with the founding of the Prescription imprint in 1993. He recently released a 24-track compilation of some its finest cuts, "Prescription: Word, Sound, and Power," on Rush Hour earlier this year. He joins Antal for what promises to be a musically unique and adventurous night.

Advance Tickets:

Antal ( Rush Hour | Amsterdam )

Ron Trent ( Prescription, Rush Hour | NYC )

Adrian Loving ( DC )

Green Room:
Sassmouth ( God Particle, As You Like It | Chicago )

Navbox ( Flash | DC )

Flash Bar: 
DJ Oso Fresh (ESL | DC)

DJ SOUL (Dusk | DC)

As a DJ and ‘musicologist’, there are few more serious than Antal. Trying to sum up the musical world of the Rush Hour founder with a few loose signifiers like house or techno would be futile.
Sure, everyone in the industry claims to have been music obsessives since youth, but few have taken it as far as this Dutchman. As a DJ who prefers proper tools like E&S or Rane rotary mixers and Dope Real isolators, since 1996 he has played all across Europe, Australia, Asia and both North and South America. Unlike many, though, he has a wealth and depth of music to call on that is so vast you never quite know what you are going to get: he is as comfortable spinning Chicago and Detroit influenced house as he is rare Afro funk, forgotten disco and everything in between.
Of course, Antal also runs the mighty Rush Hour Records in Amsterdam with a close group of hard working people. It’s a vast empire that encompasses a reliable distribution wing, sub label Kindred Spirits as well as a much-loved record store chock full of vinyl bought during on- going crate digging trips around the world. The label, meanwhile, releases house and techno from the vanguard at the same time as re- issuing long forgotten classics that serve to educate whole new generations about what has gone before. You could say Antal himself serves the same purpose when DJing.

A perennial presence in music since the early 90's, Ron Trent pulls no punches!

Considered to be one of the architects of the Chicago music scene, Ron studied and collected various types of music as a young boy, taking cues from his father who ran a record pool in the late 70’s. Later, becoming a respected DJ in his early teens in the mid 80’s. Ron began to work on his own productions, which lead to his first release, the highly recognized classic "Altered States" in 1990, giving him international acclaim. Through his 13 year old Prescription Records, Ron has notched up an extensive back catalogue of his own productions and introduced several key players. Prescription Records is widely regarded as one of the most influential Deep House imprints of the period.

In the early 90's, Ron collaborated with House/R&B team Hula & Fingers, producers for Jive records and production credits with Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Kool Mo D, High Five, Lidell Townsend and MTF. Under the direction of Hula & Fingers, Ron began to develop his skills as a producer and musician by incorporating his training as a percussionist along with developing skills on the keyboards. After several releases on Club Records, Hula & Fingers classic imprint, Ron went on to form his own label with renowned vocalist/producer Chez Damier.

In 1993, Ron and Chez began creating the template for what would become the signature Prescription sound, eventually finding it's way into various remix and writing production hits, and implementing the conception of Prescription Records. Prescription Records, together with it's sister label Balance, introduced the likes of Anthony Nicholson, Abacus, Glen Underground (CVO), Moody Man, Norma Jean Bell, Joshua, Peven Everett, Rob Mello, and Luke Solomon to the world. During its course, Prescription Records became known for issuing superbly produced, often epic dance music by drawing influences from all over the globe and delighting club goers, as well as DJs with its highly unique sound.

Ron's sound expanded in 1997 with the release of the dance classic "Ncame U”. With writing partner Anthony Nicholson, famed vocalist D'bora, and Peven Everett on trumpet, this record launched Ron onto the NYC dance scene. After Ron's move to NYC, he quickly gained respect as a DJ/Producer by doing various gigs at Body and Soul, Shelter and hosting his own events at the legendary nightclub Vinyl in downtown Manhattan.

Ron’s DJ and production skills caught the attention of the owners of Giant Step. Together, they began to create a new sound that would lead the way for the future of Giant Step the club and Giant Step the label. In 2000, Ron started his residency with Giant Step at Shine, bringing forth a fusion of Neo Soul, Jazz Funk and World music, while merging it into a dance formula. The party, “Giant Step Weekly Sessions”, sponsored by Levi's and Evian, played host to many loyal weekly followers. With Ron's vast knowledge of music and Giant Step’s thirst for the cutting edge, the event became one of the most top rated nights in NYC.

Ron's in house productions on the Giant Step/Sony label, featured artists such as Amel Larrieux, Jody Watley, Anastacia, Donnie, Carl Hancock Rux, Lina, Jill Scott, Eyrkah Badu just to name a few. His productions lead him to work with other greats including Tony Allen, Chucho Valdes, Papa Weba, 4Hero, Amp Fiddler, Groove Collective, as well as various other world artists
