New York mixologists Maks Pazuniak and Al Sotack recently opened the Jupiter Disco, using inspiration drawn from their mutual love of dystopian science fiction – an unmistakable aesthetic combining world-class drinks and reference-monitor quality sound. Danny Taylor, from House Under Magic, designed the sound system, calling on his familiarity with Danley Sound Labs’ technologies to give the bar impactful, detailed sound with a ‘grilles-off’ aesthetic that fits the theme.

Jupiter Disco‘This is Maks and Al’s passion project in a scene filled with taste-makers who are very enthusiastic, but also very critical,’ Taylor explains. ‘The drinks and aesthetic are an obvious priority, but the sound system is as well. They wanted to bring in DJs, along with limited live electronic acts in support of a local scene here in Brooklyn. They wanted an awe-inspiring sound system at Jupiter Disco.

‘Sure, they had to put money into it to pull it off, but the real key to Jupiter Disco’s success is their genuine passion. The scent of genuine passion (or its lack) is really picked up on, and you can’t buy your way into it.’

Taylor’s experience of Danley goes back many years. He played in and engineered for Collapsing Scenery, orchestrating and overseeing their happy reliance on a pair of SM80 loudspeakers and a pair of TH118 subwoofers for all their live shows. He also works closely with Eastern Stage Productions, which keeps a stock of Danley boxes on hand for their sound and efficiency.

‘As great as the Danley technology sounds, I have to say the Danley horn-loaded aesthetic is almost as important as far as my clients are concerned,’ Taylor says. ‘They respond to look as much as to sound, and a Danley horn-loaded box with its grill off is an iconic look. Clients get excited.’

Based on their coverage patterns and output, Taylor selected a pair of Danley SH60 loudspeakers for the mains at Jupiter Disco. The grills are off and the wood is stained to fit the rest of the bar’s aesthetic. ‘The SH60s are one of the first things you’ll notice when you walk in,’ he says. ‘It’s a real statement piece, not just a black box. And the coverage is perfect – it’s even across the bar without much spill on the walls and ceiling.’

A single TH118 integrated into the DJ booth fills out the low end, with significant additional support from two CS30 subwoofers. A DNA SC48 processor conditions the system, and Powersoft K-Series amplifiers power it. Additional sound reinforcement high points include a custom analogue Condesa rotary mixer and an SSL G Series VCA bus compressor.
