Open House Conspiracy was created by a group of individuals who share a lot more than a deep love for music, dancing and art. From the very beginning our vision encompassed efforts to foster a better community we can all live in. We’re all excited about the upcoming event with King Britt & Q-Burns Abstract Message and thought it would be a perfect opportunity to address a persistent and often hidden problem, while providing you an outlet to help.
Lisbon bred, Munich based Lino Rodrigues, aka Alkalino, began DJing in 1988. Over two and a half decades later, he finds himself making his North American debut on a tour that hits three heavyweight US cities with major club music legacies: Detroit, Chicago, and Philly. Generous with his edits and with originals/remixes covering a range of different styles, Alkalino is the allusive workhorse in many DJ’s sets, receiving support from key players in the disco and house world.
The tour makes its stop in Orlando this Thursday, August 29th at Sandwich Bar. Lino’s history and deeper understanding of how to program a night across genres for a cross generational dance floor is exactly what we’re about at Open House Conspiracy. Expect a blend of the D’s techno, Chi-town’s house, and the City of Brotherly Love’s soul amongst other sounds.
To round things off we asked Whiskey Disco owner and O-town local, Sleazy McQueen, to provide support for the evening. It’s only right that the two be paired for this special night celebrating an established Orlando label with international reach. Get to know Lino better and hear Laurin weigh in on his imprint in the following Q&A.
In light of our international guest Alkalino on Thursday, August 29th we looked into advanced ticketing options. Always about intimacy with our crowd, we decided to forgo major ticketing sites which offer convenience to the promoters while making event-goers foot the bill through annoying fees. The only way we’d even consider handing down fees to you is through an organization like Party for the People who use the service charges to fundraise for good causes, but unfortunately they currently only operate in the UK. Instead we set up our own secure store through BigCartel - Bringing the art to the cart - where you can easily use PayPal or your credit card to show early support and be rewarded with the lowest ticket prices possible. While there are no physical tickets (saving the trees), we will have your name and a smile available at the door.
The world of graphic design is not much different from the world of music. When it comes to creating an original work, you take individual samples and tweak them to your liking, experimenting with arrangements and effects, and layering them until something starts to not suck. Often times you end up with something completely different from what you set out to do.
We thought it might be interesting to show you the individual samples used to create our original designs in a series we’re callingRespective.
Lazy Afternoon Sundays is one of Orlando’s most trustworthy names for DJ’s, hip hop and good music in general. They’ve hosted the likes of Rich Medina, Spinna, J. Rocc, and more. They prefer to leave the radio alone when behind the decks and hold down classic hip-hop, funk, soul, dancehall riddims and anything else that makes you boogie.
We explored the thoughts of Lazy Afternoon’s Danny Venegas and Jonathan Santino (Danny V and Spreadsheets) prior to them rocking the decks at their first Open House Conspiracy this Saturday, June 22nd at Sandwich Bar. As you can tell they are true gentlemen and scholars, quoting music history like they did a dissertation on it. This isn’t your typical Q&A, continue after the jump and you might get more than you asked for.
