Pleasure Planet's kaleidoscopic debut album has been a long time coming, but good things come to those who wait. Developed over years of late-night studio improvisations, 'Pleasure Planet' is an affectionate and colorful patchwork of the New York City-based trio's knotted influences that's suspended between the rave and the chill-out room, weaving glistening pads and chunky basslines into vocal earworms and warm, saturated rhythmic cycles. Bandmates Andrew Potter, Kim Ann Foxman and Brian Hersey enter into a lysergic dialog with their discrete personal musical histories, drawing inspiration from vintage EBM, ambient music and heady early '90s West Coast rave sounds and launching these classic elements into a transcendent new sonic universe.

Experience the Head Hi-Fi sound system consisting of a pair of vintage La Scala Klipsch-horn speakers, subwoofer and rotary mixer. Head Hi is an immersive hybrid space dedicated to the arts, fostering ideas and creating memorable experiences with a variety of cultural programs. After two packed Record Listening Sessions this year, we're looking forward to enjoying new music paired with amazing flavors that will expand our senses.

Head Hi is located at 146 Flushing Ave. across the street from the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Hosted by:

Pleasure Planet is a dynamic New York City-based post rave collective composed of Kim Ann Foxman, Andrew Potter, and Brian Hersey. The trio's evolutionary journey unfolded through lysergic cycles of collaborative experimentation within shared studios, immersing themselves in the realms of machine-driven alchemy and nurturing their multidimensional sound. Bound by a shared creative vision and sharpened through countless late night studio improvisations, Pleasure Planet manifested into existence. Their personal approach to music-making infuses every strand of their sonic tapestry, sparkling with nostalgia for the genre-bending styles of their formative rave years, while simultaneously charting a course through unexplored skies, angling towards an alien horizon. @lovepleasureplanet

Kim Ann Foxman, Hawaiian-born, New York-based artist, DJ and producer, was raised in the light of the San Francisco rave scene. Formerly a lead singer of Hercules and Love Affair, Foxman is now known internationally as a DJ, bringing her classic rave aesthetic while pushing future-leaning sounds. Andrew Potter, a veteran of the DC rave scene, and formerly one half of the electronic duo, Populette, is a producer who cut his teeth in the early 00s NYC nightlife, where he honed his skills in basement clubs and the studio. Brian Hersey, long a wanderer of the underground and club scenes of NYC, brings his eclectic sensibilities to the sonic mosaic of Pleasure Planet, cultivated through his explorations with the bedroom electronica of Ciao. 

SELF:TIMER is the label created by Foxman and Potter as a home system for Pleasure Planet, and anything else that fits their brand of the psychedelic, weird and wonderful. Together, they hope to bring this sound to your world sometime soon, at your pleasure. @selftimer_records
