It’s a celebration, bitches. Not only is URB’s favorite NYC smang institution RINSED celebrating it’s third birthday, but it’s doing so by collaborating with one of the most important labels in underground music in recent times. RINSED will finally house the amazing talent-house/label/party/crew of Glasgow’s NUMBERS, who have poured out tunes from your favorite artists (Deadboy, Jamie xx, Rustie, SBTRKT, and so many more) for ten years. And if you think ten years of existence ain’t an accomplishment in this industry, you are fooling yourself. That’s a lot of fist-pumps, shouting, sweating, drinking and rough-housing to get through; and the best part is the braintrust of Numbers always keeps things interesting. Whether it be dropping Fleetwood Mac at a warehouse party or putting out a re-release of DJ Pierre, or breaking out the likes of Jessie Ware via a SBTRKT release, these dudes are always ahead of the game. With that said, we asked that very same braintrust to give us the anthems that truly represent the spirit of Numbers, sprawling between funk, techno, electro and so much more. Check out the track down below, as well as a link to tonight’s festivities at RINSED, post-jump.
The title says it all; as if RINSED hasn’t gotten bigger and better each time around, the Brooklyn-based smang-rave collective is doing it big once again with the heavyweight champion of feel-good house dubs, Marc Kinchen aka MK. I know, we’re excited too. So excited that we’re telling you that you better get your tickets soon, as the event’s almost sold out. Check out the flier, ticket purchase link and a preview of MK’s vibes down below, post-jump.
Like Bill O’Reilly stated so eloquently on Inside Edition many years ago, “we’re doing it live. F**k it.” That’s kind of what Boiler Room NYC is doing tonight, only without some frog dude screaming at the forefront of it all. Instead, the streaming institution will be taken over with the likes of Terrence Dixon headlining, preceded by the awesome lineup of Ital (Planet Mu/Workshop) Container (Morphine/Spectrum Spools) and Young Male (White Material), all performing LIVE. Yes, that’s a big deal and yes, it’ll be streaming tonight on the Boiler Room website, starting at 7PM EST. Check out some previews of what’s to come tonight, post-jump.
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.
