The best parties in NYC this week

XXYYXX + Beshken + Moon Bounce

By the age of 17, young Floridian Marcel "XXYYXX" Everett had already secured a much-lauded position at the head of the hip-hop beatsmith vanguard with his two albums of slightly abstracted, vaguely Weeknd-esque electronic-soul grooves. In the years since those releases, he's stayed relatively quiet, but as evidenced by his latest single "Red," aging has only matured the smoky sound.

A Made Up Sound

Dutchman Dave Huismans has been releasing groundbreaking, genre-traversing electronic music since 2006—from his early EPs under the 2562 alias for dub-techno labels Tectonic and 3024, to his 2010 and 2016 EPs as A Made Up Sound for Amsterdam's venerable house and techno label Delsin, to his 10 EPs (and, most recently, a retrospective compilation) as A Made Up Sound on the moniker's self-titled label. Huismans brings his eclectic mix of charmingly spazzy techno-funk with hints of dubstep to Good Room for his first NYC gig since 2013. He'll be joined by local Bossa resident and Bristol's Noods Radio DJ Shy Eyez. Distant Signal takes over the Bad Room with a live set of "moody vocals and analog gear" from Earth Boys and a DJ set from Steel City Dance Discs producer and the Lot Radio show host X-Coast.

Mutual Dreaming presents Dr. Rubinstein

The reliably experimental audio-visual party Mutual Dreaming hosts what's sure to be an epic 4-hour set from Dr. Rubinstein. The Berlin-based DJ first made her U.S. debut this past September at Sustain-Release, closing out the festival with an impeccable mix of acid techno, dark electro cuts and full-on rave bangers. She returns to headline Mutual Dreaming's party at Brooklyn Bazaar in Greenpoint. Support comes from Groovy Groovy's dynamic selector and overall badman, Akanbi.

Sublimate: Brawther

Sublimate returns for yet another intimate, underground party, promising "proper vibes, solid sound and a cheap bar." Parisian-born Leeds house producer and expert vinyl DJ Brawther, who has played at Ibiza's DC10, as well as Fabric, Panorama Bar and Glastonbury, headlines the bill. Support comes from residents Turtle Bugg and Sagotsky.

DJ Sprinkles + Francis Harris

The truly astounding DJ, producer and identity-politics theorist DJ Sprinkles makes and plays everything from challenging electroacoustic material to more traditional (though still quite beautiful) house music. The last time we caught the veteran, it was a stellar, bumping set, so don't miss this one. Also behind the decks is Scissor & Thread cofounder Francis Harris, otherwise known as Adultnapper.

Those in the know know this list is mostly childs play - the real parties can't be found here you gotta dig deeper friends. Use your imagination the underground is thriving - nyc 's still got it if you can get it.
