The Drifter (Maeve, Sohaso, Lossless)
For the second Fiction Sunset Cruise of the season we welcome back perennial New York favorite The Drifter.
After blowing us away on Fiction boat parties in 2015 and 2016 with his stunning and dynamic DJ sets, The Drifter was a shoe-in for our 2017 boat series. His infectious energy, mastery of epic yet tasteful melodies, and a magnetic connection with his devoted New York crowd are sure to make this one of the parties of the summer.
The Drifter's dj style, like his productions, definitely lean towards the hypnotic, melodic and emotive side of electronic music. No matter what genre he is playing. House, Techno, Disco. He learned his craft from hours of djing in bars and clubs and running clubnights. One such clubnight was Passion Beat, a night he ran in Berlin for over 3 years with his buddy Mano Le Tough. It gathered a loyal, steady following and quickly became known for it's two residents and the guest artists they booked. His reputation as a dj has steadily grown and brought him all over Europe and the world.
He runs the record label Maeve together with two of his close friends, Mano Le Tough and Baikal. All three share a similar passion for deep emotive music, and the label has quickly become one to watch, releasing music from Baikal, and remixes from Ripperton and Dixon.
