AMNH Continues 'One Step Beyond' Series 2/28 with Dj Rashad and Dj Spinn
The American Museum of Natural History continues the seventh season of One Step Beyond with DJ sets by DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn, and Nick Catchdubs. The event will take place in the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Hall of the Universe on Friday, February 28, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
During this ongoing party series, guests can dance in the Museum's Rose Center for Earth and Space to the sounds of the biggest names in techno, electronica, hip-hop, and indie rock. Guests can also enjoy the Hayden Big Bang Theater, located in the lower part of the Hayden Sphere, which features a dynamic multi-media presentation, narrated by acclaimed actor Liam Neeson, that takes visitors on a thrilling four-minute trip from Earth to The Edge of the visible universe. Each ticket also includes one pass to the Museum for future use. One Step Beyond is presented with Brightest Young Things.
After DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn met in 1996 during homeroom at Thornwood High School, they quickly began producing tracks at each other's houses. They also DJ'd parties with RP Boo, DJ Clent, GantMan, Poncho, and various essential Dance Mania DJs including DJ Deeon, Jammin Gerald, DJ Funk, and DJ PJ. Since then they have released tracks, DJ'd parties around the world, and founded a DJ and production crew called the "TekLife"-connecting veteran DJs and producers who mentor younger DJs in the music business. DJ Rashad's album "Double Cup" was given "Best New Music" by pitchfork in 2013.
For nearly a decade, Nick Catchdubs had been DJing around the world from Lollapalooza and Camp Bisco to Electric Daisy Carnival and HARDFest. Catchdubs is also co-founder of the label Fool's Gold, which has introduced artists like Danny Brown, Kid Cudi, and Duck Sauce.
