Residence NYC: Musclecars

Brandon Weems and Craig Handfield are paving the way in a new wave of New Yorkers evolving nightlife behind the booth and on the dance floor. The duo’s project Musclecars has become a common fixture at key venues across the city. Known for dishing out a balanced blend of soulful house and beyond, the project’s vision takes aim a bigger problems that face the industry. Using their event series Coloring Lessons, the two are partnering with venues setting a new standard for inclusivity on the dance floor. End to end, Musclecars create a platform for new sounds and experiences one night at a time.

Ahead of a recent Coloring Lessons night, we heard from Musclecars about their path in both sound and curation. These two BK artists are looking to fit into a certain aesthetic, the authenticity is evident. Turning to the classic sounds of local dance floors, their sets weave a house music history lesson with fresh presses that are just as timeless.
