After a brief hiatus, URB is back with its podcast series and quickly stepping into the twilight zone with an exclusive mix from 50 Weapons’ experimental auteur Anstam. Releasing his tunes almost exclusively on the label for the past few years, Lar Stoewe has kept Anstam a project that has bent and broken the rules of predictable electronic music, sometimes stretching conceptual pieces into a dance frenzy that’s submerged in unresolved territory. That conceptual madness is what makes Anstam a perfect choice to contribute to our podcast series after our mini-hiatus. Back into the abyss we venture towards, with a twist. Anstam has given us a tracklist, in alphabetical order. It’s up to our ears to figure what’s played from first to last. So listen well and lose yourself to this epic mix.
New York has been getting its fair share of amazing parties; full-on affairs with visuals, vibes and various special guest DJ affairs, but the minds at BangOn! take it one step further every damn time. So naturally, while people are having fun times with their costumes on at various Halloween shindigs, the minds at BangOn! crafted the Warehouse of Horrors, a Brooklyn-based industrial affair that has everything and more for guaranteed satiation. With a variety of genres covered within the sonic spectrum, it looks to be a loaded night to say the least. Combined with art installations, food vendors, and multiple stages, this is a Halloween mini-festival in a warehouse. When Just Blaze and Alex Metric are your headliners, you’re expecting mass calamity…along with costumes. Check out the full lineup, along with the ticket link, post jump.
This week’s podcast comes from Munich dance wunderkind SCNTST; a burgeoning producer that has only just begun in stampeding the electronic underground. Gaining notice through his tracks on Boys Noize Records, SCNTST has shaped a unique production sensibility into parts previously unknown to his listeners, as evident within this mix.
This week’s edition of The Bunker at Output is almost overwhelming in it techno-weight; with the dubby sounds of Deadbeat (BLKRTZ) and the unique atmospheres of Abdulla Rashim (Prologue/Semantic), one would think that’d be enough for the price of admission. However, a special appearance by Luke Slater (aka Planetary Assault Systems, L.B. Dub Corp, The 7th Plain, and so many more) on top of that makes this a must-see event for anyone who has a beating heart for the dance. Coming off the announcement of his debut LP under L.B. Dub Corp for Ostgut Ton, Slater is set to bring all his signature sounds for a special set at his Output debut. Check out the info, ticket link and a preview of what will be heard tonight, post-jump. …MORE
Yeah, it’s about that time again; RINSED is back but with something truly once-in-a-lifetime within its upcoming endeavor. Detroit comes to NYC through the glow of golden-era rave thanks to a special live performance from the legendary Inner City. Considering the group’s live performances have been few and far between in the past decade-plus, this is not just a big get for the RINSED crew, but a big get for New York City in general, as this is a rare opportunity to see legends at work. And if that wasn’t enough, another legend joins the fold in the form of the beloved Justin Strauss, who has been satiating dancefloor addicts for decades with his penchant for amazing selections. Rounding out the lineup will be Detroit up-and-comer Danitez Saunderson and RINSED residents, Dan Wender and Blacky II. What are you waiting for? Don’t you want to have “Big Fun”? Or maybe you want a piece of the “Good Life”? Either way, get your ass to RINSED because this is going to be a memorable night out. Check out some Inner City vibes, flyer and ticket link post-jump.
