Joris Voorn, the head of the Rejected label, is the rare Dutch DJ who doesn't play meathead house or gossamer trance; instead, his tech-house tunes rely on unexpected twists and melodies (not to mention hot basslines) to work their magic.

Deep Space

  • Price band: 2/4

Dance-music deity François K and his Deep Space soiree—focusing on dub in all its glorious, echo-drenched forms, but extending its reach to all types of underground dance music—have been ruling Monday nights for years. The only dress code is "an open mind." If that's a stretch, the evening's futuristic vibes will set the tone.

Those in the know know this list is mostly childs play - the real parties can't be found here you gotta dig deeper friends. Use your imagination the underground is thriving - nyc 's still got it if you can get it.
