Fixed and Verboten: Bicep + Maxxi Soundsystem + Pional

Critics' pick
Two of NYC's top party-tossing crews team up for a hot house hoedown. Leading the way is Bicep, or Andrew Ferguson and Matthew McBriar—the Northern Irish bloggers turned producers who have released top-tier house tracks for Throne of Blood, Aus Music, Love Fever and their own Feel My Bicep imprint. But there's plenty more aural action to be had, with Maxxi Soundsystem (the British producer who's probably still basking in the afterglow of this past fall's club hit, "Stella's Way") on the decks and Pional, probably best known as a frequent collaborator of John Talabot, performing live.
