Sublimate: Electric Minds 10
Time Out says
Sublimate returns for yet another intimate, underground party, promising “proper vibes, solid sound and a cheap bar.” For this very special edition, the NYC party collective hosts London-based promoter and record label Electric Minds, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a global tour. Headlining the occasion are perhaps two of the most respected musical tastemakers in house and techno. Ben UFO is one of the few artists known solely for his impeccable DJ sets—sans any productions of his own. The British DJ's DJ cofounded the groundbreaking dubstep-meets-techno-meets-house label Hessle Audio in 2007 (with the Hessle Audio show broadcasting weekly on Rinse FM), and he currently keeps himself plenty busy playing unforgettable sets from Tokyo to Croatia. Production phenom Peter O'Grady, better known to fans of the ever-mutating bass-music-meets-house sound as Joy Orbison, is equally excellent on the decks. The two have shared the bill together countless times—sometimes, if you're extra lucky, going back-to-back—and are capable of spinning a wider array of genres than almost anyone in the [insanely competitive] U.K. music scene. Do not miss. Support comes from Electric Minds' Dolan and Sublimate's Sagotsky. R.S.V.P. by emailing NYCSublimate@gmail.com for location.
