2ManyDJs and James Murphy’s Despacio soundsystem announces New York shows

The 50,000 watt, seven-stack soundsystem is back

Despacio is taking over New York's Knockdown Center between 2nd and 4th April this year, with three seven-hour sessions planned.

The brainchild of LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and 2ManyDJs, the famed travelling soundsystem had been on something of a hiatus, before announcing two London shows for May at the Roundhouse.

The one-of-a-kind 50,000 watt, seven-stack system was built in collaboration with audio-pioneers McIntosh, and has toured across Europe and America.

James Murphy recently launched a new cafe in Brooklyn called Daymoves, his second restaurant in Williamsburg.
