“The Animal Party” – Sahara Oasis @ Harlot – San Francisco, CA – TAVISWILD x WALLACE x WILKI [04.11.14]


The Animal Party launched November 2012 at Harlot (www.harlotsf.com) in San Francisco and quickly became the city’s most popular monthly party. The production is TRAVISWILD’s (www.TRAVISWILD.com) monthly residency and often includes special guests like Thomas Jack, Hohme, Panic City, John Beaver and other rising talents. For those unfamiliar with “The Animal Party,” the event takes place each month with a different animal-related sub-theme. Patrons dress up as various creatures and dance the night away in the transformed venue. In less than a year after launching THE ANIMAL PARTY in SF it was successfully expanded to East Hampton, NY in the summer of 2013 and in November of 2013, exactly one year after establishing himself as king of the Animal Kingdom, THE ANIMAL PARTY and TRAVISWILD secured bi-monthly residency at Riff Raff’s in NYC. What started as an idea for a housewarming party has now transformed into a bi-coastal high quality production that is nothing short of a WILD experience.


The second time Travis brought the The Animal Party through NYC, we did a special Wallace vs. Wilki b2b set before Travis came on to rip up the place. So many close friends came out to get wild with us that night and kept the place rocking until 5am…ya, things got weird.  Our close friends, Sabrina Burda and Natalie Dodge, aka SBND, warmed things up for  for Travis at the last event at Riff Raff’s on April 4th. Similar to Will and myself, they have developed an infatuation for those deep grooves and melodic vibes, so needless to say, the stage was set quite nicely. Travis took over the decks dropping some ghouse beats, and then as the night progressed he got into some fresh progressive vibes. The drinks were flowing, lights / digital mapping were on point, and the music was spot on…per usual.

This time the show is back out on the better coast at Harlot. Pick up your tickets below and I can’t wait to see all my west coast friends and fans out showing off that animal spirit!

FREE DOWNLOAD: Sixth Avenue Express Discobelle Guestmix


Reeally eclectic mix from one of my new favorites, Sixth Avenue Express. The Hamburg-based fraichemaker we all know and love as Solomun tuned me into these guys when he opened his Last Resort set in Miami with one of their songs. Ever since then I’ve been keeping my ear to the ground for new cool stuff from them. This one popped up in my Soundcloud stream this morning and I’ve been grooving it all day. Awesome track selection, but, damn, do I wish I were poolside with a lemonade.
