Party Favor and Nitti Gritti

The duo makes its debut this weekend at Diplo's Higher Ground party in Brooklyn.

The urban dictionary defines "side piece" as that special someone you call when stepping on our your main squeeze. But for Party Favor and Nitti Gritti, the term refers to the musical fling the pair is currently enjoying. 

Today (Sept.19), the producers not only announce their new collaboration, Sidepiece, but also offer up the first track from their new alias, "Wanna See You." Premiering exclusively on Billboard Dance and out via Insomniac Records' In/Rotation imprint, the track is a blaze of tech house glory markedly different from both the LA-based Party Favor and Miami-based Nitti Gritti's standard output. 

"We’re just two below average guys who got together to make music we love, but don’t tell our significant others," the guys tell Billboard Dance. "Everybody needs a Sidepiece.”

Sidepiece makes its live debut at Mad Decent Presents: Higher Ground at the Brooklyn Mirage this Sunday (Sept. 22). The Diplo-led lineup also features Walker & Royce, Paul Woolford, Huxley, Golf Clap and more. Both Party Favor and Nitti Gritti have a history of releases on Mad Decent.
