Why Public Works has a crush on Tim Sweeney
So…..everyone in our office is crushing on Tim Sweeney this week and some of us here at Public Works (no names mentioned) are even in a frenzy over the arrival of the man behind Beats In Space. For nearly 13 years Tim Sweeney has been broadcasting extended mixes and intimate interviews with underground/undiscovered producers and globe-trekking DJs from his radio show, Beats In Space. Since he was 18, Sweeney has spent every Tuesday night from 10pm-1am in the depths of the NYU radio station DJing and transmitting rare grooves, new EPs and forward-thinking dance music to a cult following that stream his podcasts world-wide. His passion for DJing and record collecting propelled him to work with James Murphy during the early days of DFA Records, where Tim was playing out and about in Lower Manhattan. Now having played all over the world, Sweeney returns again to Public Works for another magical night of soulful vibes. Along for the ride will be Eric Duncan a.k.a. Dr. Dunks (Rub n Tug). The amazing producer/DJ/party boy returns to The City with his unique disco styles and well-crafted edits that will have this place going off long into the night. Both of them bring such a blend of sounds coupled with that driving New York energy needed for a night like this.
