Safer at Night Showcase

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

A little dark and a whole lot deep—that's the sound of Safer at Night, the new Trouble & Bass sublabel headed by Curses (the man otherwise known as Drop the Lime and, by day, Luca Venezia) and Scrap and Chris, who together form DKDS. (We've heard a few of the label's warehouse-friendly late-night house tunes already—and they're killer.) Curses and DKDS will be in the booth, of course; they'll be joined there by fellow Safer at Night artists Walker & Royce and Total Fitness, along with Curses's Trouble & Bass cohort Star Eyes and others.

  1. Verboten 54 North 11th St, between Kent and Wythe Aves, 11211
  2. Until Sat Apr 5

Razor-N-Tape Night with Joey Negro

  • Critics choice
  • Free

Razor-N-Tape, the edit-oriented Brooklyn label run by Deep & Disco's JKriv and Aaron Dae, has a hot one on its hands tonight: British DJ, producer and musicologist Dave Lee, best known by his Joey Negro alias, will join the duo high atop the Meatpacking District to play one of his vanishingly rare NYC sets. Lee's one of the best spinners of disco, house and boogie around, so make this intimate session a date.

  1. Le Bain 444 W 13th St, at Washington St, 10014
  2. Until Fri Apr 4

Input: Martyn + Leon Vynehall + Matrixxman + Bloody Mary + Carlos Alkalina

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Output's Thursday-night shindigs have been going from strength to strength, and this installment continues that trend in a big way. Martyn, the founder of the seminal 3024 label and a brilliant Dutch dubstep-house-techno-whatever artist, is gearing up for the release of The Air Between Your Words, his first new album since 2011's Ghost People. He'll be headlining in the main room, with talented U.K. producer Leon Vynehall (who's released material on 3024) and San Fran's Matrixxman lending top support. The Panther Room sees sets coming from Bloody Mary—who describes her sound, and that of her label, Dame-Music, as "electrogoth"—and Audiolism's Carlos Alkalina.

  1. Output 74 Wythe Ave, at North 12th St, 11211
  2. Until Thu Apr 3

Marquee Fridays: Solomun

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

Solomun, the top dog of the red-hot Diynamic label, is coming off a career-making 2013—which makes sense: He’s one of the best spinners of twisty, techy rhythms around, appealing equally to the underground crowd and to those who just want to get down. This marks the producer’s Marquee debut; Sleepy & Boo lay down the opening set.

  1. Marquee 289 Tenth Ave, between 26th and 27th Sts, 10001
  2. Until Fri Apr 4

Mutual Dreaming Unsound Edition

  • Price band: 2/4
  • Critics choice

As part of the ongoing experimental-music–oriented Unsound Festival, Aurora Halal’s Mutual Dreaming party takes control of Cameo for a night of outsider electronics. The event features a live solo set from Inga Copeland, the former Hype Williams duo member who’s struck out on her own using the lower-case-only copeland moniker. That’s awesome enough by itself—but add in a rare Gotham session of deep rhythms from Michigan dub-techno kingpin Rod “Deepchord” Modell, along with sets from house-music deconstructivist Huerco S and Poland’s Wilhelm Bras, and you’ve got yourself a rather special night Go to unsound.pl/editions/new-york-2014/events for more info.

  1. Cameo 93 North 6th St, between Berry St and Wythe Ave, 11211
  2. Until Fri Apr 4
