Timmy Regisford

Media Title

Often dubbed “The Maestro,” Timmy Regisford is a Trinidad-born producer, DJ and all-around legend in the house and dance music universe. With a career that started in the ‘80s at New York’s WBLS as music director and took him to A&R positions at MCA, Atlantic and Motown, the man knows every angle of the industry, but perhaps shines brightest with a dance floor to work over and hours to whip it into a frenzy. His kind of music, you could definitely say, is influenced by the late, great Godfather himself—Frankie Knuckles—but Regisford’s sets skew further into endless, meandering and soul-stirring jams. The beats he uses and the vibes his tracks evoke sound like they greatly informed artists like Marsha Wash, CeCe Peniston and Crystal Waters. He’s also signed and remixed folks like Patti LaBelle, Diana Ross, New Edition, Bobby Womack and Steel Pulse. Still, he’s managed to carry those ‘90s-and-disco-flavored grooves into 2014 with grace and aplomb.

Tonight’s an opportunity to really twirl and freak for as long as you wish. For what promises to be a five-hour-long set with Voyeur’s “brand new renovation [with]… a booming sound system in full effect,” the Shelter NYC guru will delight dudes who—like Regisford will—want to take their shirt off and sisters who need room to groove. Slated as a multi-city gathering for seekers of soul spaces, even curating transport for those in NYC and Jersey, this jam may even help you make some out-of-town friends while sweating and sipping. // BILL CHENEVERT
