Special guests this week are: Rabit aka Glacial Sound, with his dark, minimal grime beats, and Kuato, founder of Partyguy records and a real connoisseur of NYC party-tastic heavy bass. Check out our feature on this event below for mixes from the guests and all the info.

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).

POST TRACKS: Tripletrain, George McKeon b2b Adam Cohen, Simon Yi, Ex Ex Ex b2b Max Barabas, Anibal, Duntzcap at Castlebraid Rooftop [2PM-12AM/$10] 
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.

WompList 47: Reconstrvct/Outlook Launch, Mosca, Krampfhaft/Gaslamp Killer, XXXY, Chaisley Lussier, A Tribe Called Red, Ray Keith

FRIDAY, MAY 31

TOP PICK  Gaslamp Killer, Edan (all vinyl DJ set), FaltyDL, Nick Hook, Krampfhaft at Music Hall of Williamsburg [9PM/$15]
GLK is an incredibly high energy performer, viciously mashing crunk hip hop beats, psychadelia, ecstatic middle eastern music and all manner off voodoo via turntables and live controllers. But the real star here is Krampfhaft, who is playing first at 9:30. It’s a special treat to see this guy, as he’s only in town as an RBMA participant before returning to Europe. His necksnapping, lazer-baked beats fuse wonky, juke, and 808 music into something that is clearly from the future. In fact, it was one of his tracks that got DJ shadow kicked off the decks in Miami for being “too future”. Check out his last three EPs – they just keep getting better. Quite frankly I’m terrified of what he’s gonna make next. Also on the bill is Edan doing an all vinyl hip hop DJ set, and NYC gems FaltyDL and Nick Hook.

GOOD LOOKS NY: Chaisley Lussier, Bass Control, Narkatta, at Lilium (Funktion-1 Sound) [10PM/FREEwRSVP]
Lilium is a club in the W hotel. Yes, there’s bottle service, but more importantly, there are good DJs. Chaisley Lussier has impeccable taste in UK bass, Narkatta plays glitch-hop, and Bass Control is electro/progressive house. 2 outta 3 aint bad! Could be a good choice if you have friends that you can never convince to come to BK.

SATURDAY, JUNE 1

RECONSTRVCT XIII Outlook Launch Party: Author (live), Cyrus, Seven, Jack Sparrow, Ruckspin, Joe Nice, True Nature, Selector Joseph Demension at tba [10PM/$30]
Words can’t describe what a huge deal this is, but I’ll try anyway. Reconstrvct is the best party in Brooklyn; 100% independent, underground and uncompromising. Their lineups are always massively stacked; this one is mountainous. They got the best renegade sound system in NYC (Tsunami Bass), recently upgraded to 40,000 watts of the warmest, cleanest bass I’ve ever heard. Add to that that this is the NYC/US launch party for Outlook, the world’s best bass music festival. People are coming hundreds of miles for this. If you really want to get an understanding, read my previous writeups of the headliners Author, and of Outlook Festival, or check out the featured event page, loaded with mixes and tunes from the stellar lineup.

A Tribe Called Red, Zuzuka Ponderosa, Jubilee at Glasslands [11:30PM/$12]
A Tribe Called Red is a trio that blends native american music with club music and hip hop to great effect. One of the most interesting live electronic acts I’ve heard about in a minute. Joining them is ridiculously energetic funk carioca emcee, Zuzuka Ponderosa, and the hardest working DJ in BK, Jubilee.

If you like underground dance music in NYC, then Tony Quattro, Flubba and Cream Dream are three names you should be paying attention to. Fresh house and bass music.

Weekend Forecast: Traxman + DJ Deeon, Egyptrixx, Bonobo, Christian Martin, Jubilee, Gerd

FRIDAY, APRIL 12

TOP PICK  LIT CITY RAVE: DJ Deeon, Traxman, Dubbel Dutch, J-Cush, Durban at The Rink [10PM/$12]
Lit City is back in NYC for the first time since New Years, and boy are they going hard. First off, it’s the NYC debut of DJ Deeon, who has been pushing Chicago’s ghetto house sounds since ‘94 – he’s one of the true originators and innovators. But they’re also bringing out Traxman, another Chicago footwork legend. His Da Mind of Traxman LP on Planet Mu last year was a shoe-in for year end lists, and a turning point in visibility for the sounds of chicago footwork. Also on the bill, Mixpak’s Dubbel Dutch, who knows a thing or two about makin motherfuckers dance at high tempos, and Lit City residents J-Cush and Durban. Back at 285 Kent – bring earplugs, it will get loud.

Egyptrixxx, Evan Michael, T’Angelo, Judge Wise at Cameo Gallery [12AM/$7]
Toronto’s Egyptrixxx is back in NYC, with his “celestial club music”. Pulling from techno, drone and even pop motifs, Egyptrixxx obliterates your expectations of what can be done with a 4×4 format. Expect an extremely danceable set full of unexpected textures, tension and a complete lack of trendy bullshit.

Christian Martin (Dirtybird) plus Chris Love, AB Logic, Chris Patrick + Joe Pompeo at Cielo [10PM/$15]
Christian Martin is one of the founders of Dirtybird, the label that has single handedly fomented a San Francisco funky tech house revival. Supported by the SOUP crew, who normally hold it down at Sullivan Room, this is a party for people serious about gettin their dance on.

BONOBO, Nickodemus, Wiseacre at Public Assembly [12AM/$10]
The demigod of downtempo, Bonobo, is playing 2 shows tonight in support of his new LP, The North Borders. The first, at Webster Hall, is totally sold out, but he has a late DJ set at Public Assembly with limited tickets available at the door. I’ve had the pleasure of catching Bonobo twice in the last year, and his DJ sets are energetic and danceable, infused with his uber-smooth jazz and trip hop sensibility, but still sounding totally current for a 2013 dancefloor.

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
