Brooklyn: Theodore Jahng Presents An Unrivaled Music Program
Local New York DJ Theodore Jahng will be presenting a program of first-class DJs to provide the soundtrack to the Spring edition of The Other Art Fair Brooklyn.
In addition to DJing regularly in Brooklyn and Manhattan, Theodore is a music supervisor, specializing in soundtracks for fashion shows & presentations, multimedia design projects, and commercial spaces. In curating the music program for The Other Art Fair, there was a desire to work with some of the best independent labels, stores, and artists in New York; the DJs performing in the resulting lineup embody the multidisciplinary approach of so many artists in New York; playing at The Other Art Fair Brooklyn provides an opportunity for them to stretch their sound and play selections that they normally would not be able to play in a club environment.
For his own set during the Private View, expect Theodore to play an eclectic mix, including left-field gems, strange pop, rare groove, obscure film scores, and, of course, the necessary Sade deep cut.
Following Theodore Jahng’s set on Thursday at the Private View we have…
