OTS x OP1 Interview: DJ Sliink [+Exclusive, Free Tracks]

Winter’s entering it’s final throes, and more importantly, this month’s editions of on the sly and OUTPOST1 are almost here. This month we’re bringing DJ Sliink from New Jersey to headline our partnered parties at (le) poisson rouge and the Fuze Box, respectively.

On Thursday, Sliink will be joined with Contakt, who played OUTPOST1 over the summer (revisit the Q+A here) and resident knomad. On Friday, Sliink will join guest Tony Quattro and residents Party With Tina (who you may have seen open for Rusko this past weekend), Looney and knomad.

As per usual, we will be playing on air Friday from 6-10pm on WCDB 90.9FM for your official pre-game music.

And to introduce our headliner: As part of the Brick Bandits, which include the likes of Tim Dolla, Dirty South Joe and DJ Sega, DJ Sliink‘s records have been obliterating club sound systems through the hands of some of the most respected soundbwoys in the business. His signature blend of Jersey/Philly club, incorporating aggressive uptempo rhythms with soothing Pop and R&B samples give him extensive appeal across the pop and underground spectrum. His DJ sets run the gamut of Pop, Dubstep, Moombahton, Jersey/Philly/Baltimore Club, House and Reggae – the standard loadout for a working New York Club DJ. With upcoming releases on Hype Headz, Pelican Fly out of Brussels, and guest slots on Mad Decent Mondays, this naturally gifted talent out of Newark, NJ is an artist to watch in this emerging wave of hybrid dance music.

Mega Bonus: DJ Sliink was kind enough (and not to mention very generous) in sending us an exclusive party pack of tunes to get us through this work week. Don’t sleep on this exclusive, free download!
