MISTER SATURDAY NIGHT: Dark Sky (UK), Alex Burkat, plus Justin Carter & Eamon Harkin at House of Yes [10PM-6AM/$10]

Mister Saturday Night has been one of the best respected underground parties in NYC for some time – but their record label is relatively new, and quickly carving out a similarly sterling reputation. Saturday, they feature two tremendous talents who represent their 4th and 5th releases on the label – NYC’s own Alex Burkat, and the UK trio Dark Sky.

Dark Sky is a very exciting trio of DJ/producers from the UK, known for their dark, funky, and heavily swung take on the techhouse/futuregarage/ukbass sound. Their productions are just incredible, but they also have a tremendous range, as they are comprised of 3 music heads. The stuff I included below represents their “core” sound but check out their other mixes for a sense of their vast musical scope. Alex Burkat you might know from his heavy bass moniker Rx, but under his birth name he brings a cinematic disco and house vibe. Really nice stuff! And of course, the residents, Justin and Eamon, will hold it down from start to finish.

Dub-Stuy presents ECHO CHAMBER: Tour De Force (ft. Ranking Joe) Dub Gabriel, Ticklah, True Nature at The Paper Box [10PM/$15]
We’re BIG supporters of Dub-Stuy – they’re a pillar of soundsystem culture in NYC. Not only does their custom-built 12,000 watt soundsystem look and sound GORGEOUS, but their events are always expertly curated. Check out the interview we did with the founder, Q, on the eve of their launch event

Saturday, they have another killer lineup. Tour De Force is the roots-oriented dubstep project of Dub-Stuy’s founders, Q and Double Tiger, featuring a rotating cast of emcees. It’s exactly what I want to hear on that system. This time out, they have legendary toaster Ranking Joe, who has been an integral part of soundsystem culture since the 70s.

Dub Gabriel has an epic resume, but what really matters is that he fits right in with the Dub-Stuy sound – his 4th LP, Raggabass Resistance, fuses a heavy dub aesthetic with incredibly tasteful digital production and an allstar cast of dub vocalists (Jahdan, Juakali, The Spaceape, Warrior Queen, Brother Culture, MC Zulu, etc).

We’ll be treated to a roots reggae set from Ticklah, producer and keys for the Easy Star Allstars (of Dub Side of The Moon and Radiodread fame). He’s also a founding member of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings AND Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra. Man knows dub. Rounding out this monstrous lineup is True Nature, resident at RECONSTRVCT and a true master of the opening slot – that’s a huge compliment, by the way.
