Each Other (Justin Strauss & Max Pask)
Justin Strauss is one of the most influential and enduring figures on the New York club scene. Born in Paris, Max Pask has also cemented his reputation on the NYC scene since his move here in 2000. Together, they are the DJ duo Each Other.
Strauss consistently reinvented himself, moving from his ‘70s power-pop band Milk‘N’ Cookies through an array of NYC’s most iconic clubs: the Mudd Club, Limelight and Area. By the late ‘80s and early ‘90s he emerged as in-demand re-mixer, able to reinvent tracks from big hitters as varied as Depeche Mode, 808 State and Duran Duran. That reputation only grew over the years and as a new wave of disco-tinged artists called on his talents, including Hot Chip, Blood Orange and LCD Sound system.
Remixing the likes of Soulwax, The Rapture and Who Made Who, Pask has held residencies at a multitude of venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn over the years. Along with long time friend and partner James Friedman, he also co-manages Throne of Blood Records, on which he has released under different monikers (Populette / Maxime & Remain). The two are currently residents at Brooklyn Hi Fi Club Public Records. In recent years, Max has been heard remixing Hardway Bros, Roe Deers, Mugwump and Timothy Clerkin”
Originally from France and based in New York City for nearly a decade, Camille BWR is a DJ, producer, vocalist, record dealer, and owner of the label Beef Wellington Records.
Her style is a uniquely sexy, salient, and refreshing blend of disco, funk, soul, rock, hip-hop, house, Afrobeat, and rarities and gems from around the world spanning from the 1960s to the present day.
She is in residence at The Lot Radio in Brooklyn, and you can catch her as a guest selector at renowned clubs and venues around the world, from New York’s Le Bain and Good Room, to Paris’ Silencio, Berlin’s Arkaoda and Sound Metaphors, and beyond.
In 2020, Camille lent her voice to North Satellite’s single “Le Lagon Noir,” mixed and released by Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani for his Startree label. Throughout the pandemic, she has been invited to perform at the exclusive virtual festivals Unlimited Nation: Mosaic and Transformation, curated and organized by the legendary Traxx of Chicago’s Nation Records.
