FRIDAY, OCTOBER 4 BOMBEAT: Filastine (Live!), Nickodemus, 2Melo, Thornato, Atropolis at Drom [12AM/$10] Filastine is a producer and multi-instrumentalist who makes globally-oriented bass music as his critique of globalization. I wrote about him back in March of last year when his incredible video for Colony Collapse came out. Kinda sounds like Beats Antique but with

NIGHT PEOPLE: Curses, DKDS, Eli Escobar, Blu Jemz, Lloydski at Le Bain [10PM/FREE] Record release party for Drop The Lime’s techno alias, Curses. Check out the singleand his promo mix. Very different than his Trouble & Bass material. Still dark, very dancefloor oriented, just trading in the rockabilly swagger and dubstep bass for Vangelis synths and icey drums. Collaborators DKDS and Night People residents Blu Jemz, Lloydski and Eli Escobar will keep the darkness going.

a/jus/ted at Kinfolk Studios [10PM/FREE]
Super-heavy disco all night from the a/jus/ted, the duo of 20-something Eddie Mars and Justin Strauss, a 3 decade veteran of NYC dance music. Check out their excellent june mix. This isn’t nice disco. No string arrangements or diva vocals here. Just driving basslines and extra crispy drums, perfect for dancing in dark rooms or driving all night.

SATURDAY, JUNE 22

DISCOVERY: Free Magic, Faso, and Chris Costello at Glasslands Gallery [11:30/FREE]
Our favorite disco party (4 years in August!) is doing a resident night for FREE! How can this be? Their home venue, Glasslands, has just installed a big new soundsystem, which means Discovery doesn’t have to pay to bring in extra sound. And they’re passing the savings onto us. Really excited to hear the new sound there, as Glasslands will be hosting some acts that demand it later this summer (Phaeleh, Lil’ Silva and L-Vis 1990).

All day rooftop danceparty in Bushwick. Buncha Brooklyn DJs spinning deep house, tech house, bass, disco, etc. The real draw for us is Brooklyn juke/footwork producers Tripletrain, who will be playing the closing set from until 12 midnite.

Locked Feat. Distal, Jubilee, Star Eyes free open bar rbma embassy trouble & bass fade to mind mixpak at SRB Brooklyn

Weekend Womp Forecast!

FRIDAY MARCH 8 LOCKED: Distal, Jubilee, Rizzla at SRB [10PM/FREE] Our highest recommendation for the evening. Celebrating the venue’s 1st birthday (open bar at 10!) as well as the release of Jubilee + Star Eyes’ grime mixtape LOCKED (which is fucking awesome). Distal is up from Atlanta (though we’ll be seeing a lot of him

Weekend Womp Forecast!

Tonight there’s truly something for everyone. Our pick is Addison Groove at Cameo Gallery – this guy is always on the bleeding edge of bass music (and is now running a new label, LIT). As Headhunter he was my gateway to deep dubstep, and it’s incalculable how many people who got turned on to juke/footwork by his immortal tune Footcrab. Every time I see him play, he turns my brain inside out. With support from FaltyDL (whose new LP on Ninjatune is SO GOOD) and SciFi&Fantasy label head Max Pearl

If you like Breaks, then the only place to be tonight is House of Yes for VITAMIN B. They have finally booked Deekline, who is about as legendary as they come for a genre. Plus the residents Barney Iller, Tektite and Tim The Enchanter are all veteran badasses – this one is for serious dancers only (but they are opening up a second chillout room due to the huge expected turnout). Hit up ELECTRIC PUNANNY at the Paper Box tonight for a frenetic mix of dancehall, hip hop and all kinds of global bass – they’re celebrating the third installment of the mixtape series of the same name, and have OG producers Dubbel Dutch and Dre Skull.

VERBOTEN has tINI and Justin Martin at HIghline Ballroom tonight. There are a lot of Justins in house music, but none whose tunes are as funky and ubiquitous as his recent LP on Dirtybird, Ghettos and Gardens (and the two volumes of remixes it inspired). Expensive, but highline is a very nice venue and the crowd is gonna be mad hyped. Finally, if you’re looking for a weirder DIY vibe, hit up AstroNautico – they have  an interesting spectrum of house music tonight from guests Braille (Praveen from Sepalcure) and some live hardware from Octa Octo. Plus the massive Tsunami Bass soundsystem (the one that powers Reconstrvct) and some very talented residents, all for just $8 with RSVP. And the space is really one of a kind (it’s a rave parking garage – no, really)

SATURDAY also has great options – the most interesting of which is definitely IDLE, put together by the Reconstrvct crew and BigUP magazine. It’s an art show featuring the work of Ashes57 (who did so much of the dope art for Outlook Festival) as well as a lineup of exceptionally talented experimental electronic music. No tickets at the door tho, so be sure to get one in advance if you want to go (secret BK location will also be annouced only to ticketholders day of). Over at Le Bain, our boys DKDS are headlining Night People – expect some serious dancefloor-oriented techno and house. Also, you may know two out of the three residents (Lloydski and Eli) from Bushwick’s finest dance party, Tiki Disco. Trust us when we say you’ll be in good hands.  And for all you 90s ravers, DnB legend Photek is in the Webster Hall basement on saturday, while NinjaTune  veteran DJ Vadim will be at Brooklyn Bowl for just eight bucks.

Also don’t neglect to check out all the new additions for February and March!  We’ll be blessed to enjoy two more Reconstrvcts, the return of Bicep, Kyle Hall,  Egyptrixx, Chrissy Murderbot, an Osgut Ton showcase at Output, a Dirtybird showcase at SRB, Turrbotax with Gerry Read and SO MUCH MORE.

See you on the floor!

DKDS 305 Mix

Been listening to this mix about twice a day all week now, so I reckon it’s time to share it. Ostensibly a mix to promote their upcoming Miami shows, but for those of us outside the 305, what matters is that it’s an hour of killer funky house. Great selection of newer stuff (Duke Dumont, Oliver $, Dirtybird, Maceo Plex, etc) sandwiched by some deep cuts I’d never heard. And the transitions here are just immaculate.

DKDS is a DJ duo from Brooklyn. The name might stand for Dutch Kills Death Squad, and I think they’re cousins, but that’s all besides the point: this mix kills, and if you see these guys on a flyer, you should go see them.
