We here at URB have always loved the hearts and minds at RINSED; a venerable Brooklyn party institution that’s equal parts musical intrigue and intimate chemically-induced entanglement, surveying the landscape of all things forthcoming in the underground pipeline and presenting them with satisfying results. Lately, the RINSED crew has been on a roll, really picking up steam since their legendary afterparty for BEMF 2012 that featured the likes of Numbers lynchpin Deadboy. However, after stellar events featuring Braille, Egyptrixx and much of Kastle’s Symbols crew, the RINSED team have come together to bring their most high-profile event yet. Come March 8th in Brooklyn, Morgan Geist (Storm Queen) and Azari & III (Dim Mak) will invade the hallowed “Umbrella Factory” for an enduring night of sonic sweatiness. Check out the almost NSFW flyer down below, along with links to get tickets post-jump.
We’ve all heard about the rumblings that surround the newest Brooklyn club adventure Output; yes, it’s built to last and surely making every partygoer in NYC a happy camper, but we at URB were wondering when there would be a focus on bass implemented at the club. Then, we get notice of INPUT –a new night at Output seemingly dedicated to the sub-sonic vibes that we know and love– is debuting tomorrow with the likes of Koreless (Young Turks/Vase), Sinden (Grizzly) and local favorites Braille (Hotflush/Percussion Lab) and Heathered Pearls. The best part? It’s free with RSVP. Yeah, that’s right NOT A CENT (if you give them an e-mail). So stop wasting time; check out the flier and details below, post-jump.
The venerable New York institution Percussion Lab has grown significantly over the past seven years; from an eclectic radio show to a full-fledged web-streaming party bonanza; previous guests include the likes of Scuba, SBTRKT, Dorian Concept, Daedelus, Krystal Klear and way too much more to add to this list. Needless to say, the Percussion Lab family is a collection of past and present NYC locals, along with previous guests that residents Braille (Praveen Sharma of Sepalcure) and Nooka Jones have maintained close ties to throughout the years. Judging by the artists compilation, there are plenty of vibes to behold. Cambio is a compilation that features exclusive tracks from previous Percussion Lab favorites such as Machinedrum, Lando Kal, and XI as well as new cuts from bubbling acts like Archie Pelago, Contakt and Enoe. Here’s what the PLAB guys had to say about this compilation and their contributions on it.
“Over the years, the bedroom producers and shy novices we championed in years past have become some of the most influential names in the world of electronic music. We’re offering this compilation of exclusive tracks as a way of continuing our mission to provide a home for producers and DJs to host their original music and mixes free of charge, and to be able to continue supporting our local community by booking the most forward thinking artists possible for our events. We hope you can help us keep doing all of this, for free, by buying some this complication full of amazing music by some our closest, oldest, and most talented friends. “
They’ve been gracious enough to share the first cut of the compilation, “Friends and Lovers” from Ghostly staple Shigeto. Check out the link to the track as well as the compilation link, post-jump.
Blk|Market is about to do it big again; this time continuing its fairly-new tradition of housing Scuba’s seminal SUB:STANCE night in New York again, with special guests ranging from labelmates (Braille) to techno contemporaries (Marcel Dettmann of Berghain/Panorama Bar/Ostgut Ton/MDR lore). Needless to say, there will be great sound, minimal lighting and massive vibes. Check out more info on where to get tickets, as well as a flyer and some bits from the artists down below.
Today, we’re excited to premiere New York producer Braille’s take on the charming Galapagoose (real name Trent Gill) production One Who Can’t Move. Galapagoose’s debut solo album Commitments is forthcoming on Daedelus’s Magical Properties label on March 13th. Drawing inspiration from modern beat music as much as it does from Gill’s jazz theory background, and using DIY methods of production, tracks like One Who Can’t Move end up brimming over with warmth. While the original of the track was posted a while ago at XLR8R, we’ve got an exclusive download of Braille’s amazing remix of the song, in which the producer (who you may also recognize as one half of duo Sepalcure) adds a house turn and takes it in the direction of the dancefloor.
