SOUP and RVDIOVCTIVE hit the high seas yet again in the latest installment of Boat Trippin’, planning to set sail this Saturday, July 22, 2017.  Heading out from Manhattan’s Pier 83 on 42nd Street, the entire New York City skyline will be the backdrop to some of the best house music the city has to offer.  For anyone looking for a quick getaway, an excuse to be on a boat, and a quick primer on the up and coming artists in the city, Boat Trippin’ is the place to be. SOUP (yes, I had to google it too; Support Our Underground Properly) has been a mainstay of the New York house scene since the mid-90’s. Founded by nightlife pro Chris Love, it was designed to cater to those with the most discerning tastes in underground house and techno. Making a name for themselves featuring sets from the likes of Andy Smith, Juan Atkins, and Hector Romero, the SOUP brand eventually found a residency at the legendary Cielo, where they bring their thick vibes, wild dance floors, and world class DJs with a regular party series once a month.  For Boat Trippin’ SOUP is bringing along house veteran Mark Farina, along with SOUP residents Love & Logic, Joe Pompeo, and Lady Cherelle, as well as Miss Lamour, Meshugs, and Bob Evil. 19577356_866176716863330_8139508393284561260_o Brooklyn regulars RVDIOVCTIVE (who just did an amazing live stream set with Top of New York Studios) will be making an appearance as well, with Devon James, Charles Meyer, Rupert Wall, Will OB, and Lipstik all making appearances. To round it all out, Dirtybird's Walker & Royce will be playing a headlining set, further cementing their status as one of the top breakout DJs in 2017. If you haven't heard their fat and funky beats, you might as well come learn what many others are quickly realizing about these guys (and check out Dirtybird's New Years Special Vol. 2 compilation, which was mixed by Walker & Royce). Come out, set sail, meet some cool DJs and hear some groovy tracks with the Big Apple as your backdrop. You can grab what tickets are left HERE!
