Brooklyn Electronic Dance Round Up: NYE2016 Edition!

There’s less than 48 hours left of 2015, and as we count down the clock, you may be rushing to find that final spot to let loose this New Year’s Eve. But don’t fret, I’ve sifted through an extremely tall stack of invites to parties around North brooklyn and decidedly landed on a nice handful of ragers specifically designed to help you forget and forgive into 2016.

Starting off up in Greenpoint, the men of all things tropical, funky, and disco, Tiki Disco reign in the fun at Good Room for an all night affair including an open bar for 5 hours! If you’re over on the south side of the burg, Black Flamingo has you covered with a triple promoter collab featuring Kaviar Disco Club, Discovery and Boston house DJs Will Martin and John Barera. Heading further east you’ll find MeanRed posted up at the Sugar Hill Disco with an incredible cast of Detroit players including Kai Alce, Andres, Rick Wilhite, FLO REAL, and Turtle Bugg. For those invested in secret locations, both Mutual Dreaming and Rinsed have fantastic warehouse parties with stacked bills consistent with their brand of left field techno and house, including talent like Newworldaquarium, Gunnar Haslam as well as Todd Edwards, Jacques Greene, and Morgan Geist. Finally get your night cap on at Glitterball’s NYE2016 at intimate east willyb staple, The Graham where former Limelight resident DJ, The Horrorist drops heaviness into the new year.
