Thank You, Have a Nice Rave – underground NYC rave scene appreciation in Edinburgh!

House / Techno / Acid

Ron Like Hell is the embodiment of NYC sound with over twenty years of experience and running their party WRECKED – one of the most celebrated dance forward queer parties in New York City.

Few DJs have the wealth of experience and knowledge Ron has – not just of music but of making people move. Ron’s music has vibrated several times through the massive sound system of Berghain’s Panorama Bar in Berlin, accompanied the sunrise at festivals like Sustain-Release and has taken them to different corners of the globe but their music has always brought them home to NYC.  Ron Like Hell’s Scottish debut will bring Edinburgh a slice of the NYC rave scene – and will show why his unique and story weaving sets are talk amongst all of NYC’s underground.

Scottish born Panooc spent almost a decade on the iconic and rich dance floors of NYC shaping their sound and energy behind the decks This honorary New Yorker cut their teeth on some of NYC’s largest dance floors and with their recent move back to Edinburgh is making their Bongo club debut alongside a NYC legend Ron Like Hell.
