INPUT returns this week to Brooklyn with a heavy-hitter in tow (or two if you really like deep grooves); as Kanye West collaborator, Warp impresario Hudson Mohawke headlines at Ouptut on a very special night. Needless to say, while people will be reaching for higher ground and holding for dear life after every terrific transition at the main room of Output, the always-impressive Mark E will headline The Panther Room next door, with Roy Dank supporting. Supporting HudMo in the main room will be Kwes, the one-in-all performer that just put out his debut LP, ilp. via Warp just a few weeks back. Needless to say, this is going to be nothing short of amazing; and we here at URB are providing you with an exclusive promo code for anybody willing to make the trip to Output this Thursday. Grab the discounted batch fast, as advance tickets are running out and tickets at the door will be $30. Check out a preview of what’s to come, promo code details and links down below for more information.

Whoever said celebrating your independence was all about barbeques and fireworks obviously has never been to a Deviation party. Based in London, the long-running series is a reflection on sonics far and wide, curated by BBC Radio One don Benji B, who has successfully taken the reigns of the underground community ever since Mary Anne Hobbs departure in September 2010. Shrouded in the clouded veil of bassbin legend, Deviation is coming to New York City on July 4th (with special thanks to RBMA), with acts that will tantalize anyone into running from their grills and go straight to Le Poisson Rouge. Kode9 needs no introduction, the Hyperdub don has put out some of the best music of 2012 recently with Laurel Halo’s Quarantine and LV’s Sebenza on the way. Joining him will be Montreal’s ambassador of all things cooking, Lunice. He’s been busy cooking up a storm with Hudson Mohawke for their collaborative effort, TNGHT, releasing their EP on Warp/LuckyMe. Rounding out the lineup is resident Benji B, who will be debuting in New York City. Check out more info on Deviation, as well as the flier after the jump.
