NASA bring intergalactic dance party to Los Angeles

Kanye West beams in via satellite

NASA brought their intergalactic-themed dance party to the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles last night (August 12), which featured a special guest appearance by Kanye West via satellite.

The DJ duo of Squeak E Clean (Sam Spiegel) and Zegon (Ze Gonzales) took the stage aboard a makeshift spacecraft that featured multi-coloured flashing lights and the word “NASA” written across the front.

The pair pumped out tunes from their recent debut album, ‘The Spirit Of Apollo’, as well as mash-ups featuring samples by Pink Floyd, LCD Soundsystem, The Rolling Stones and The Jackson 5.


The pair were joined on stage by Fatlip, who rapped on a couple of tracks including ‘The Salmon Dance’ by The Chemical Brothers. Also, Beastie Boys collaborator Money Mark played keyboards and Barbie Hatch sang lead vocals on the NASA track ‘Way Down’.

Costumed dancers dressed as giant one-eyed aliens also made an appearance, riling up the crowd and using their giant tongues in various obscene ways.

At the end of the night, West beamed in via satellite to introduce ‘Gifted’, the album track featuring Lykke Li and Santigold, before the crowd rushed the stage for a massive dance party.
