The love child of electronic producers Nitti Gritti & Party Favor, SIDEPIECE makes their debut in New Orleans at Republic tonight, November 19. The unlikely duo joined forces to create their house alter-egos, but they weren’t totally expecting to create SIDEPIECE. The two linked via DM in 2019 to share track ideas and by the end of their conversations, they’d registers the @youasidepiece social handles and SIDEPIECE was born.
The two have both played in New Orleans separately on previous occasions; Party Favor playing with Brillz at Republic NOLA in 2016 and Nitti Gritti as an opener for Ghastly in 2018. Tonight, the two take the stage together for an evening of tech-house beats with doors at 9pm.
Opening up is Deeper Purpose, a London-based DJ you may have heard with his recent hit “Party Diva.” Try not to dance when you listen to it, I dare you.
Already highly touted for his production prowess Stephen Galloway, AKA Deeper Purpose, is primed to make a major impact on the global dance music scene in 2022 and beyond. In addition to his numerous releases with top-tier labels like Catch & Release, Repopulate Mars, Insomniac Records and Saved; Deeper Purposes’s remix of Piero Pirupa’s “Everybody’s Free (To Feel Good)” on Spinnin’ Deep also finished 2021 as the longest-running Beatport Tech House #1 of the year. Having already toured in the UK and Europe, you can now also expect to see him performing internationally at many of the most prestigious clubs and venues across North and South America.
