More than 500 people packed a secret Bushwick loft party for the launch of RINSED founders Daniel Wender’s and Blacky II’s label, the Umbrella. Breaking down the barriers between the artists and the audience, the party featured mirrored altars, candles, flowers, and incense. Jamie Principle headlined the event, which also celebrated the release of G.O.D. Vol. 1. RINSED have been throwing themed warehouse parties in Brooklyn for the past five years, and partygoers say the Umbrella launch was like a trip back in time to the first events.
