DJ SETS FROM:
TURTLE BUGG (SUBLIMATE/BASEMENT FLOOR) — Turtle Bugg has spent years bringing his distinct style of underground funk to dancers, both on his own and as half of Soul 2 Seoul with his musical partner Chung. Having graced dancefloors worldwide with his compelling and groove-laden sets, he has also helped to bring some of the most talented DJs in house and techno (Jenifa Mayanja, Jane Fitz, Ben UFO, Aybee, and many more) to New York City as a resident of the long-running Sublimate party. In recent months, Turtle has also dipped into production, with a remix of Love Letters alongside L.L. Lie on Yield Records. Above all, Turtle Bugg brings passion and critical thoughtfulness to DJing, alongside obvious technical prowess and selection skills that combine to form the palpable and vital energy that we seek out in all artists who perform at In Training. Come through and show him a warm welcome at his Cleveland debut.
DJ NASOR (STRANGE ALLURE) — DJ Nasor has long been a stalwart contributor to forward thinking electronic music both in Cleveland and the wider region, and the voice he has established with both his DJing and an organizer of the illustrious Buffalo party Strange Allure continues to make an impact. His selections reflect a personality of warmth, wit, and the subtle yet firm commitment to sonic experimentation that has made him such a close and cherished confidante of the IN TRAINING family.
[ADAB] أدب (HEAVEN IS IN YOU/DISCO PARADISO) — Your opening guide for the night will be أدب aka ADAB, whose deep pulses and polyrhythmic intonations will set the stage for an evening of personal discovery.
IN TRAINING events are intended to be a space for autonomous living for oppressed and marginalized people who have run afoul of society's expectations with regards to gender, sexuality, race, class and ability. It's a party that also emphasizes practicing good consent on the dancefloor and helping people who feel unsafe in public spaces — especially club environments — feel safe and welcome. If anyone interferes with your enjoyment of this event by harassing, groping or otherwise behaving in an oppressive manner, please let the promoters and venue staff know and we will have them removed. We would also like to remind everyone that this is an 18+ event, and we reserve the right to verify ages at the door.
