ICY LAKE: A Night Slugs x Fade to Mind Short Film
A NIGHT SLUGS X FADE TO MIND SHORT FILM
VICE TV‘s ‘All things Electronic Music’ Channel THUMP presents A Night Slugs x Fade to Mind Short Film that tribute’s the classic 90’s Vogue/Runway track ‘ICY LAKE by Dat Oven, originally championed by legendary DJ Junior Vasquez at his one of a kind weekly party ARENA, at the now defunct Palladium in NYC.
I am beyond proud to appear and be a part of ‘ICY LAKE’, The New Short Film from Night Slugs & Fade to Mind by Wills Glasspiegel on VICE / THUMP! The premiere party last night at Verboten was brilliant and the music was off the meters! Thank you Wills for seeking me out and inviting me to be a part of this film. It was an honor, and I’m so happy to see the younger generation embrace the traditional nightclub fierceness torch that the Arena family carry from the folks way back in the day at the Paradise Garage, through amazing clubs like Bassline and Sound Factory, all the way up to Arena and Twilo lol. The fact that everyone fell in love with ‘Icy Lake’ all over again speaks volumes. Watching everyone gasp in unison at the amazing Arena / Palladium footage made my heart skip a beat because yes, it WAS that fierce. All of us freaks under one roof under one banner – HOUSE MUSIC. So great to ki-ki with L-Vis 1990, Prince William and Michael Cox – and my beautiful wife Saam, my cousin Danielle and I had a super special dance floor ki with Ousmane Wiles and Shireen Rahimi who turned me OUT! Can’t wait to spin for you two! WORK IT.
THUMP collaborated with the Night Slugs & Fade to Mind labels to create this short film, directed by Wills Glasspiegel with L-Vis 1990. ‘Icy Lake’ explores the mystery behind Dat Oven’s suicidally hot ‘Icy Lake’ track while connecting the dots between tribal house, vogue, grime, and the future.
