ApK's "The Program" kicked off the second night of its monthly Hip-Hop series in Brooklyn. Having been to the premiere on Nov 7th at Coco 66, we had high expectations for the second and we were not disappointed. Hosted by Combat jack, the room was dimly lit and the stage was set for some spectacular and intimate performances. A "Ferris NYC" pop-up shop had custom design apparel for sale and APK's videographer was ready to capture every punch line.
Since he began his journey into the techno world in the late 1980’s by playing local clubs around England, Danny Howells has been a name associated with progressive house music. He bought his first DJ decks in 1991 and began to experiment with production in the mid 90’s before attracting a record deal with Jackpot in 1997, on which he released his first big hit a remix of React 2 Rythym’s “Intoxication”. Playing his first gig outside the UK, Howells gained not only a huge fan base in the Netherlands, but an opportunity with ID&T to release his 1998 debut mix album, Nightlife Report 1: Mick Boskamp Presents Danny Howells.

'The Day After' Festival 2014 Lineup
French DJ Julien Nolan is no stranger to the music world. He started DJ-ing at a very young age and has had the opportunity to mix at clubs around the world. Most recently, he played a fundraiser for President Obama and has mixed for various fashion shows for Chloe and Christian Louboutin.
His most recent undertaking is musical director and resident DJ at Fig & Olive, a restaurant with locations in Meatpacking, Fifth Ave, Lexington Ave, Westchester and two locations in California. The restaurant offers tastes from the coastal regions of France, Italy and Spain, while specializing in olive oil the main ingredient in all of their dishes.
2013 has been more or less controversial for Carnage, who tweeted in May that he would be taking a different direction with his music. Entering the green room of DC's famed 9:30 Club, at least ten people stood around chatting, while the man himself was immediately spotted wearing a black Adidas track suit and sunglasses.
If there’s one thing that the carefree, Chipotle-loving DJ/producer has taught us, it’s that timing is everything. His “festival trap” remix of Hardwell’s “Spaceman” is largely the reason why he is so successful today, but had he released it just a year or two sooner, his career would have played out much differently. “I wouldn’t be here. It’s all about timing and getting your shit right. Knowing when to drop something. A lot of people lose their steam because they didn’t drop anything, or they dropped too much. It’s all about timing and finding a good team to work behind you.”

Hoodie Allen’s homecoming show at the famous (and sadly closing) Roseland Ballroom was a rager on Friday night.
