There’s really not much to say except the Godfather of Techno is back in Brooklyn for another special appearance, of course leading up to his appearance during the extended weekend of Detroit’s Movement festival. The legend that is Juan Atkins is back at Cameo Gallery, with support from TURRBOTAX resident and fellow Michigan native Contakt on the bill. Brooklyn is getting some serious midwest vibes tonight, and we at URB couldn’t be happier. Cameo is actually doing a ticket giveaway for this event, and it only takes a click or two to get entered into the drawing. Otherwise, check out some classic Juan Atkins vibes down below, as well as the flyer post-jump.
Earlier in the year, a small party consisting of three minds from different beats of the NYC underground was born; THREE-FOR-ALL is an amalgamation of the finest NYC scene-specific DJs coming together to bring the ruckus, usually for free and for FUN. Initially launched in January with a special Berlin-specific set from the legendary Machinedrum, the party took a hiatus…until now. It looks like THREE-FOR-ALL is back, with a massive lineup to boot. Filled with local talent from the likes of Hippos in Tanks producer maven Physical Therapy and TURRBOTAX’s DJ heroine Space Jam will open up the night for the likes of Houndstooth’s man-of-action, Throwing Snow, who is fresh off taking in the lessons learned during the first term of Red Bull Music Academy here in New York City. He’ll bring his signature stylings to the decks as the residents will appear with vibes surrounding him throughout the night. It’s also FREE (with RSVP)! Check out some preview vibes down below, along with the RSVP link.
Tonight’s special edition of The Bunker is a collaborative effort between Red Bull Music Academy and Bryan Kasenic aka Spinoza; a unified effort in showing off some of the newest and greatest talents in underground electronic music today. The lineup is nothing short of amazing; with Modern Love’s Andy Stott still feeding us with welcome vibes from his stunner of an album, Luxury Problems, all the way to the legend that is AtomTM. RBMA participants Objekt (our current URB podcast contributor) and 100% Silk maven Octo Octa will support as well in an event that’s sure to be remembered in NYC underground lore. Advanced tickets are SOLD OUT, but there will be tickets at the door, and early arrivals would be the wise move here. Check out Objekt and Andy Stott’s Boiler Room sets down below after the jump. Happy hunting.
As much as we love going to Blk Market’s amazing scavenger hunt techno terrariums (kidding, we love to go on adventures), we are more than excited to go to Blk Market’s incredible Ostgut Ton showcase tonight. Needless to say, we do love Ostgut Ton dearly but something about hearing Marcel Fengler, Efdemin and Tobias. (LIVE) makes our heads explode with joy. We at URB are obviously excited about this not only because it’s involving two things we hold to high regard (peak-time techno and the Blk Market treatment) but it’s also at the newest institution for proper club vibes in Brooklyn, Output. So, put all those eggs in one basket, and we’ll see you at Output tonight, this is some can’t-miss vibes tonight. Check out the flyer with more info down below, as well as a preview of tonight’s ceremonies.
In the era of superstar DJs and mega-festivals, the notion of the weekly DJ residency is a dying one. Even in New York, a city famous for its self-contained club scene—from Larry Levan at the Paradise Garage to Danny Tenaglia at Vinyl—you’d be hard pressed to find a successful night helmed by the vision of one artist.
Unless you head out on a Monday for Deep Space, the weekly party powered by legendary DJ Francois K. Deep Space is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this Monday (March 18) at Cielo, the Manhattan venue that has hosted the party since the very beginning in 2003. Joining FK on the decks is Hotflush label head Scuba (who recently wrapped his own infamous Sub:Stance residency at Berlin’s infamous Berghain).
From techno and house to disco, left-field, ambient and the all important dub, the music policy at Deep Space has always been as diverse as the many guests who have taken to the booth over the past 10 years—Carl Craig, Gilles Peterson, Theo Parrish and U-Roy to name just a few. To celebrate the 10 year mark, we asked Francois K to tell us his 10 favorite tracks from a decade of Deep Space.
