House music and art collide in New York City as local artists create murals inspired by the genre’s history.


New York is a city that is always changing and evolving, and that’s especially true when it comes to the music and art scenes. Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest in house music, and clubs are popping up all over the city that are dedicated to this genre. At the same time, there has also been a surge in the popularity of street art, with more and more people commissioning murals and graffiti art for their homes and businesses.

It’s no surprise, then, that these two worlds are starting to collide. House music lovers are commissioning street artists to create murals and graffiti pieces that reflect their love for the music. And in some cases, street artists are using their skills to create club flyers and posters for house music events.

This trend is creating a whole new breed of artist in New York City – one that is equally at home in the club scene as they are in the world of art. If you’re looking for something new and exciting, be sure to check out some of these House Music and Art Colliders!

House music’s influence on the art world

House music has been having a moment lately. Disc jockeys have been tapped to create soundtracks for fashion shows, and the music is blaring at art openings from New York to Los Angeles. This new found popularity is not only turning heads in the art world, but also in the music industry.

The early days of house music

In the early days of house music, the sound was often quite raw and primitive. This was partly due to the fact that many of the first house tracks were made using rudimentary equipment andittle in the way of production values. However, there was also something strangely compelling about this early house sound that many people found irresistible. It was underground, it was edgy, and it had a certain kind of energy that was unlike anything else at the time.

The current state of house music

In recent years, house music has seen a resurgence in popularity, with new styles and subgenres emerging and old ones being rediscovered. This has led to a renewed interest in the music’s impact on other forms of art, particularly visual art.

In New York, a number of artists have been exploring the connection between house music and art, using the music as a source of inspiration for their work. Some have even brought the two together, creating installations that double as dance floors.

One such artist is Ryan Michael Ford, who has created a series of neon sculptures that spell out the names of famous house tracks. Ford says that he wants his work to “bridge the gap between club culture and the art world.”

Other artists are using house music as a jumping-off point for more abstract explorations. For example, multimedia artist Rashaad Newsome has created a series of collages inspired by house music album artwork. His work challenges traditional notions of what collage can be, incorporating elements such as sequins, rhinestones, and glitter.

As house music continues to evolve, it is likely that its influence on the art world will only grow. For now, though, there is no mistaking the strong connection between the two.

How house music and art are colliding in New York

House music and art have always had a symbiotic relationship. The former has long been inspired by the latter, and vice versa. But in recent years, the two have become increasingly intertwined, with house music events popping up in some of the city’s most unlikely places: art galleries, museums, and even churches.

The Brooklyn scene

There’s a new Brooklyn scene emerging, where house music and art are colliding in exciting ways.

At the forefront of this scene is a party called House-N-Home, which is held every other month in a soon-to-be-opened art gallery in Bushwick.

The party is the brainchild of two artists, DJ Joro and producer Levi Richardson, who met while working at a record store in Williamsburg.

The two friends started House-N-Home as a way to bring together their two favorite things: house music and art.

“We wanted to create a space where people could come together and experience both house music and art in a cohesive environment,” Richardson says. “So many parties these days are just about the music, but we wanted to create something that was about the overall experience.”

And that’s exactly what they’ve done. The party has become known for its immersive visual displays, which are created by local artists and often include projections, installations, and even live painting.

“It’s really important to us that the visual element is just as important as the music,” Joro says. “We want people to feel like they’re walking into another world when they come to our party.”

The party has been steadily gaining popularity since it launched in 2017, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. If you’re looking for an unforgettable night out, be sure to check out House-N-Home the next time it comes around.

The Manhattan scene

In Manhattan, house music and art are colliding in a big way. From immersive art exhibitions to club nights dedicated to the genre, there are plenty of ways to experience the two disciplines coming together.

One of the most talked-about recent examples is the House of Yes nightclub, which features immersive art installations as well as performances from some of the biggest names in house music. The club has become a mecca for those who want to experience house music in a truly unique and visually stimulating setting.

Another excellent example is the annual Daybreaker dance party, which takes place in various venues around New York City. The party always features a different theme, and past themes have included everything from ’80s nostalgia to ocean conservation. This year’s theme is ‘The Future of Dance,’ and it promises to be an unforgettable event for all who attend.

Whether you’re a diehard fan of house music or just looking to experience something new, these Manhattan events are not to be missed.


After exploring the historic origins of house music and its recent revival in New York, it is clear that this genre is more than just music. It is a way of life, a form of expression, and a source of community and belonging. For many people, house music is not just something to listen to, but something to feel. It is a way to connect with others and experience the world in a new and expressive way.
