The best parties in NYC this week

Deep Space

Dance-music deity François K's weekly Deep Space soiree focuses on dub in all its glorious, echo-drenched forms but extends its reach to all types of underground dance music. The only dress code is "an open mind." If that's a stretch, the evening's futuristic vibes will set the tone.

Mobile Mondays! 45s

Start your week with funk, soul, rock, punk, new wave, pop, salsa, calypso, reggae, rhythm & blues, disco and anything else that's danceable, spun (on 45rpm vinyl) by Just Blaze, Misbehaviour, $$$ Mike, Operator EMZ, Joey Carvello, Natasha Diggs and guests.

The Bowery Electric Until Tuesday December 29 2015

FKA twigs

To say that FKA twigs made waves with her video for “Water Me” is a bit cheesy, but we can’t resist. Like labelmates and fellow capitalization eschewers the xx, the London alt-R&B enigma makes super soulful electropop. The singer-songwriter has garnered as much attention for her videos as for her pragmatically named LP1, released in August to rave reviews. You'd be well advised not to miss her biggest NYC shows yet: three special shows, dubbed Congregata, featuring original choreography, costumes by Alexander McQueen and other multimedia surprises.

TBA Brooklyn Opening Week

After a painfully long hiatus, TBA Brooklyn is finally back! The popular happy-hour and late-night-DJ bar/club was shut down around Thanksgiving of last year, and they've finally received the a-okay from authorities to officially reopen. To celebrate, the Williamsburg venue is hosting a stacked lineup of local talent over the course of the coming four days. Highlights include De La'funk's Jon Starks and Nabeel Kahn, Hidden Roots' Alex Loaiza, Secret Guests' Blerond Hoti and Shy Eyez, Sheik 'n' Beik's O.BEE and, of course, TBA Brooklyn's very own Me&Gio and Taylan.

Ben UFO + Midland + Arthur

U.K. techno enthusiasts Ben “UFO” Thomson and Harry “Midland” Agius drop by Verboten as they make their way toward Movement to teach us a little thing or two about deejaying. Ben UFO is considered something of a DJ’s DJ, capable of spinning a wider array of genres than almost anyone in the [insanely competitive] U.K. music scene. Midland has released productions on Will Saul’s Aus imprint and never fails to deliver a solid set of low-end-heavy house. Brooklyn party boy Arthur “Artwurk” Shikhman (half of the duo Models Eating Humans) does the honors of warming up the room.

ReSolute Goes Live

Critics' pick

We’re thankful for the guys at ReSolute—with this party in the works, we’re almost glad we didn’t drop loads of cash on Detroit’s Movement festival this weekend! The New York underground party collective, which kicked off this summer’s boat and rooftop season just last weekend, throws yet another bangin’ party with a top-notch lineup, this time including exclusive live performances. Berlin-based French-Canadian “one-man wonder” Guillame & the Coutu Dumonts and ReSolute favorites DeWalta & Mike Shannon present the night and morning live and DJ sets, with support from Circus Company’s Dave Aju and BPitch Control’s Safety Scissors.
