Car Pool Party
July 22 @ 9:30 pm - 12:00 amFree
A husband-wife, co-producer and multi-instrumentalist duo blending disco, vaporwave, hip-hop and funk into a genre they call, vapordance, Carpoolparty started as a studio side project but quickly grew into a blissfully upbeat pure-pop act with pseudo-nostalgic overtones. Carpoolparty first formed in 2015 during Danny and Mary’s employment at a local production studio. The band was initially nothing more than a fascination created for experimenting with EDM ideas of this reality, playing only one show of throwaway electronic dance music in the midwest before discovering vaporwave, completely remodeling their repertoire, and moving to Greenville, South Carolina where they claim is Carpoolparty’s true home town in the physical plane.
Carpoolparty, at its core became a catalyst of creativity for Danny and Mary, drawing inspiration from their observations on human subculture in the 80s and 90s, focusing on luscious layers of concert length music rather than overly-precise “radio-friendly” editing, and an artful detachment, intentionally branding themselves with a post-retro soundscape. In August AD 2016 of this earth’s time, Carpoolparty released their debut independent album, “Hot Tapes” to the world wide web, featuring “old school hip hop,” “beat machine,” “80s & 90s Japanese muzak samples,” “disco & nu-disco percussion,” “funky synths,” “and evocative throwback references”. With front-woman Mary dancing behind the lead mic and Danny behind the beats and synth with the occasional rap, Carpoolparty aims to create memorable live shows and a recognizable brand. Stay tuned for new singles.
