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.

Joining them is ridiculously energetic funk carioca emcee, Zuzuka Ponderosa, and the hardest working DJ in BK, Jubilee.

Plus Galapagoose, a hotly tipped controllerism wiz, Archie Pelago, our favorite DJ-cello-sax trio, and Nooka Jones, Percussion Lab’s most precocious resident.

I’m not going to attempt to describe GHE20GOTH1K – plenty have already attempted – if the name doesn’t evoke anything interesting for you, chances are you’re going to be too closed minded to enjoy it anyway.  But if you’re intrigued by what it could all mean, check out some of their mixtapes.
