METROPOLIS at Love ft. RONI SIZE
Roni Size is pretty much the godfather of Drum n Bass. If you’re reading this blog, you’ve heard his shit. Go see him rip it up on Love’s uber soundsystem with the whole Bass Fueled Mischief crew – Hellfire Machina (who have been absolutely crushing it with their Headspace parties), Code of Arms, Odi and Morphous – holding it down.
Git yr tix here. This is TONIGHT!!!!
TURRBOTAX: BUSINESS EDITION at The Cove ft. HOT CITY, SUBMERSE, DJ DOM
Hot City, whose tracks have been a staple at every Turrbotax, is fittingly making his US debut there! He just dropped a mix
on the prestigious XLR8R podcast. Also on the bill from the UK is Submerse, who just had his mix featured on BigUp magazine’s podcast
! What a bunch of tastemakers and trendsetters!
If you haven’t been, Turrbotax is a monthly at the Cove, formerly Hugs, a loveably trashy bar with a weird curved ceiling off the Bedford L stop. The resident DJs all fucking kick ass – Mayster in particular always knocks my socks off and I run into Steph Neptune/Video City at every good party.
CASSETTENYC at the Paul Robeson Theatre
Cassette is a uniquely awesome party. Pseudo-monthly, and held at a different unsexy Brooklyn venue each time, the residents include big names like Machine Drum, Lando Kal (of LazerSword), Eliot Lipp and Praveen (who isn’t a big name afaik but deserves his props cuz he holds it down with the crew).
This time around, they have the very savvy addition of Mike Slott and FaltyDL – who’ve both put out music on such uberhip labels as Planet Mu, Ramp and Hotflush.
What makes Cassette really awesome, though, is how all the DJs tag team, song after song. There’s usually 2 tables with 3 or 4 DJs with laptops and a gaggle of midi controllers and cables – from this techy stew arises a relentlessly danceable mash of original productions, exclusive shit, big tchunes and throwback jamz. Bring your outta-town friends, and tell them you’re takin em to the coolest party in Brooklyn – because you are.
Shakey’s Record Fair at Public Assembly
Take a day off from partying and wobble, and go check out this record fair and party. 7PM to 2AM, so you 9-5ers can come too!
They wrote it up pretty damn good over at the Dubspot Blog, so I’m just gonna quote them:
“Dubspot friend, veteran NYC DJ, and founder of theWarper Party, Julie Covello, aka DJ Shakey, is hosting one of her renowned record fairs on May 9th. Be sure to stop by, roll up your sleeves, and dig through some dog-eared gems, just like those hero’s of yours did before all this DVS digital-DJing craziness.
Julie carefully selects dealers for her fair through a network of vinyl devotes she has met through years of experience in the music industry – it is guaranteed that you will find great selections, fair prices, and avoid sifting through loads of bad LPs that somebody bought at your grandmother’s yard sale.

First lady of Bass on a Funktion 1 system? Jesus christ on a bicycle, this one is a fucking no-brainer before I even mention that it’s FREE and there’s a FREE OPEN BAR. And the legendary astral-traveler Francois K will be on decks as well, as it is Deep Space.
