Best parties in NYC this month
C'Mon Everybody welcomes the queer brethren of Bed-Stuy to dance and delight at its new afternoon jam, with music by DJ Sean McMahill.
From L.A.'s forward-thinking 100% Silk label, hotly in-demand DJ Octo Octa blends early-house bliss and postdubstep adventurism. She lights up the stage at the new Gowanus venue Public Records.
The unbeatable duo of Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin have grounded their world-touring record label and Mister Sunday dance party at the stunning Nowadays space in Ridgewood. Join them every Sunday for jubilant dancing, food truck bites and beyond.
This Kansas City producer initially rose to prominence via a handful of sensuous slo-mo-house releases, but the most masterful realization of his talents may be his ghostly, drifting ambient long-player, 2016's For Those of You Who Have Never (And Also Those Who Have). Expect him to wind between both atmospheres and more over the course of his six-over takeover of this new Gowanus dance space.
The U.K.’s Simon Green is the man behind Bonobo, the Ninja Tune recording persona responsible for some very left-field down-tempo material. Expect some of the organic percussive tones from 2017's, Migration, as he heads a lineup of sounds ranging from cerebral to body-moving. Most notable on that list is J-E-T-S, the collaborative project between producers Jimmy Edgar and Machinehead, who together mine glitch, Detroit techno, IDM and more in their eclectic productions.
Brainfeeder honcho Flying Lotus has been masterminding the LA instrumental hip-hop scene for the better part of a decade. Catch his lush, forward-thinking electronic sounds at this massive open-air gig.
Even aside from his recent activity with his inscrutable deep-creep Traversable Wormhole persona, Gothamite turned Berliner has been an unsung techno hero since he helped open the Groove Records shop in the early ’90s. The genre vet is a unflinching purveyor of maximalist EBM, industrial techno and other caucophonous sounds, so expect a truly punishing set.
