Best parties in NYC this month
Good Room hosts a night of genre-defying electronics, welcoming back flying Dutchman Martyn. Critically acclaimed for his musical versatility, the 3024 label head—who has secured bookings at world-renowned clubs such as Concrete (Paris), fabric (London) and Berghain (Berlin)—is just as likely to showcase his gentler house vibes as he is to show off for the drum and bass veterans and serious technoheads.
This local producer melds house and hip-hop elements into a distinctive mix that's indisputably alluring—her singles "Drink I'm Sippin On" and "Raingurl" have upwards of two-million plays at this point. However, the singer is not one to hoard the spotlight. Previous shows have featured her collaborating with a Korean restaurant to make curry for the crowds, in attempt to recreate the familial, communal atmosphere of gathering for a home-cooked meal. Similarly, here she brings a host of her favorite peers to the stage—Enayet, Novelty Daughter, False Witness and others—for a show that feels more like a reunion than a concert.
Beloved thump-house technician Danny Tenaglia and New York's own Anthony Parasole (Output, the Corner, Ostgut Ton) headline a night of no-mercy hard techno. Tenaglia is a veteran in the electronic music scene, and a man who can swing between tough-as-nails prog-tech and sentimental Garage classics in the blink of an eye. Parasole splits his time between Brooklyn and Berlin, where he has a long-running residency at one of the world's greatest techno clubs, Berghain.
