The compilation, â€œBoogaloo, Brooklyn. 3:23 pm,â€ can't be characterized by a single musical style. Simply put, itâ€™s trippy headmusic, perfect for coming down after a long night, or listening to in the car on the journey home. Brooklyn had never seen a place like Boogaloo when Chance Johnston opened the doors to the sleek lounge in January 2002. Its long white bar, performance space and rooftop make it the perfect spot to hold a variety of shows including live bands and DJ sets featuring everything from electronica to punk to retro to underground hip-hop. â€œBoogaloo is a space where friends and strangers can be comfortable, let their hair down, and enjoy the diverse choice of music that we offer,â€ Johnston said. Williamsburg's own Deepak Sharma compiled and mixed the CD. The acclaimed DJ gathered tracks from minimal techno and tech house havens Germany, Spain and Detroit for the compilation. The mix features songs selected from record labels such as Trapez, Traum, Shitkatapult, and Regular. Each track has its own unique sound, ranging from soft-rolling pads and warm synths to crunchy, glitchy and bleepy elements, to form a mind-altering musical piece. â€œThe music on the CD really reflects the style I enjoy playing at Boogaloo, and the laid-back vibe of the neighborhood we live in.â€ Sharma said. Fans of Radiohead, Tyrant, Plastikman, Ricardo Villalobos, Swayzak and Ellen Allein will connect with â€œBoogaloo, Brooklyn 3:23 pm.â€ Those who enjoy the Buddha Bar, Paris Lounge and Fabric series will seek out this CD. Boogaloo has received rave reviews in trend-setting publications such as the Village Voice and Vice. Time Out New York listed Boogaloo as one of New York Cityâ€™s Top 100 nightspots in 2004. The editors at Citysearch.com in its 2004 survey named Boogaloo as the number one lounge in New York City, and also ranked it number one for best DJs and best bar in the Web site's coveted readers poll. Sharma takes pride in his knowledge of a wide array of music and understanding the how each set is built differently to connect with the crowd. Sharma has built a following by playing parties small and large throughout New York City and beyond. He kicks off a North American tour to promote the CD at Montrealâ€™s legendary Stereo Nightclub. Some of the talent Sharma has teamed with includes Lee Burridge, Craig Richards, FC Kahuna, Ralph Lawson, Mazi, Tigerhook, and Steve Porter.
