Brooklyn Electronic Dance Round Up: August 28 + 29

Ah yes, that sweet Canadian air bringing some heat relief to the hood! This weekend’s looking good to go with tons of happenings all over the map… it was hard to just choose a few. Kicking off your Friday right, the smooth and groovy tunes of Benoit & Sergio will be performed live over at CAMEO alongside Brooklyn staples Dave Harrington (DJ) of DARKSIDE and rising act a/jus/ted. Over at The Panther Room, legendary 90’s House label Strictly Rhythm set up shop with a full showcase featuring Mr V, Carlos Mena and Tommy Bones. Come tomorrow, FIXED’s JDH & Dave P warm up your afternoon back on the Output roof where RSVPing is essential. Then venture out into Bushwick where Let’s Play House presents a night at the newly opened El Cortez featuring safari house vibes courtesy of Jacques Renault and friends. Finally, cap it all off with a long night stretch until morning at Resolute as they bring in Kompakt star Matias Aguayo and the much buzzed about Black Madonna and Galcher Lustwerk. Cheers to a great weekend in the city!
