Take a look back at some of the best new music 2021 had to offer!
DJ Ryan Midnight
Based in the metro NYC area, DJ Ryan Midnight can be found spinning ska in all its forms, rocksteady, and boss reggae locally in bars on dedicated DJ nights, supporting live ska and punk bands whenever the need to get the dance floor jumping comes calling, and hosting shows! Check out upcoming events where you can catch me next!
Please get in touch for booking availability in the NYC area at any venue with a dedicated turntable setup, for dedicated DJ nights or to support a show!
100% Ska Podcast
I host the weekly-ish almost all-vinyl podcast 100% Ska (Episode Archive), currently in its 4th year of production! You’ll hear a wide mix of what the genre has to offer from around the world and across the spectrum of time with an emphasis on more current releases. One-off podcast episodes may diverge to highlight my love of 70s / 80s punk, new wave, and other oddities from time to time.
On the social media side of things, you can follow the podcast Facebook page and subscribe on most podcast platforms!
Please get in touch to submit your music for play on the podcast and for interview opportunities!

Subway to Skaville
Additionally I book and host Subway to Skaville, a showcase series in the heart of New York City presenting the best in local, regional and maybe even national ska bands. Prior to the pandemic, I hosted four amazing shows at Otto’s Shrunken Head in the East Village.
Once it is safe to start hosting shows again, be on the look out for new events!
Bands, please get in touch for open time slots to play at an upcoming show.
The newest creative outlet for all your ska needs – currently just getting started – are ska-themed cocktails named in honor of bands, and taking ispiration from the band’s name, location or song.
