SUBMIT - Save The Robots
Join us for the second installment of one of NYC's most immersive interactive experience, combining elements of the old school NY Rave scene and new school Burner events with a soundtrack of the most upfront electronic dance music selections spun by the area's A-list DJs and curated by a team of well seasoned experts in event production from the last three decades.
This next SUBMIT is a special tribute to the most legendary after-hours club the city has ever known - Save The Robots.
Save The Robots was a cozy two floor venue located in the Lower East Side of NYC from the late Eighties to the mid Nineties, a time when many nonresidents would only venture to Alphabet City looking for trouble or drugs. The building stood out with its bright blue exterior on Avenue B between 2nd and 3rd Streets. Attendees were usually invited by its crew of NY's famous Club Kids, one of the legendary DJs or word of mouth.
To enter, one had to knock on the thick metal front door. Once inside, you would have to make your way down a long corridor before entering the upstairs lounge which was adorned with an Asian theme and the floor covered in several inches of sand.
At the back of the corridor was a stairway which led to the darkened basement dancefloor where some of NYC's deepest and hardest House and Hip Hop bumped through a serious sound system as the overcapacity crowd of dancers moved and grooved from 4AM well past sunrise.
At the next SUBMIT we will be graced with a back to back set from two of Robots earliest resident DJs - Romain and Keoki.
DJ Romain is a legend in his own right. His first underground NY gig was at the now defunct Moloko Milk Bar in the LES in the mid Eighties; later, he began opening at Save The Robots. He went on to spin at NY's hottest nightclubs including, but not limited to, Palladium, Peace, Limelight, Sound factory Bar, and later Body and Soul. He is one of the most accomplished global A-list DJs and producers releasing classic House tracks and having worked along side artists such as Francois K and Robert Owens. He is now relaunching his dance label Nu Faze.
Superstar DJ Keoki needs no introduction. After coming to the states, nearly broke with just a bagful of records, he got a job as a busboy at NY's famous Danceteria nightclub. There he was exposed to the sights and sounds of the Eighties NY nightlife and was inspired to become a creative DJ and flamboyant character dubbing himself "Superstar DJ".
