Entering the warehouse space that was set up to house the Dimensions DC multi-sensory art and music experience recently, I realized that I had been to the place before. Several years ago, the nondescript building was one of the sites for the Forward festival, a citywide electronic arts and music showcase. I don’t think this stretch of West Virginia Ave. was as developed back then.

New Yorker CID came out of Queens and into the brightest dance clubs of his city. Working with Big Beat Records, he has dropped several very well-received singles in 2016, including his latest, a vibrant disco track called “Together.”
In a statement to Billboard, CID said, “I wanted to make something with an old school sampled house vibe but with enough energy to play in my sets. At first I wasn’t sure how people would react to it, but from the first time I played it I knew it was something special. So far the support and buzz around the track has been amazing and I’m really happy to have this one finally come out for everyone to hear.”
