Brooklyn Electronic Dance Round Up: Nov 13-14

BIG things happening this weekend! Neighborhood favorite, Cameo Gallery will be sending off their second-to-last weekend with a booking staple for the club, and one half of Metro Area, Morgan Geist. Joined by Have A Killer Time’s Justin Miller and venue resident Evan Michael, it’s sure to be a night of Disco and House with an italo edge (stick around for Saturday too when DFA’s Pat Mahoney stops in for one last set). Over at Good Room, FIXED celebrates their 11th Anniversary with a rare appearance from Kompakt’s Barnt, who has been winning hearts with his slow paced cosmic dance music. Also, just a skip down the road, Output sets up shop with an Innervisions label night featuring a live set from the afro rhythmic Âme and contributions from Marcus Worgall and Nikola Baytala too.

On Saturday, head into Bushwick where Broke City is back at Lot 45 showcasing the gritty and raw productions of L.I.E.S.’s Bookworms joined by locals Octo Octa and Beta Librae. Then finally finish your precious time off at Verboten for their Subversions night with Matthew Dear and DJ Koze. See you on the dance floor Brooklyn!

BangOn!NYC’s Time + Space NYE Party Returns


Oh BangOn!NYC, you always know how to make my day. The Brooklyn party outfit who was responsible for some of this year’s best warehouse parties, not to mention the ridiculously amazing first annual Elements Festival, has announced the return of their Time + Space NYE party. Last year we rang in the new year with plenty of fanfare, thanks to BangOn’s curated stages, Burning Man style art cars, holograms and a UFO launch at midnight .

But that “out of this world” party was in the past. This is the future.

REVIEW: BEMF Just Keeps Getting Better

Last weekend marked the return of the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, and what a slammin’ time it was. The eighth annual installment, which took place Nov. 5-Nov.8, featured more than 100 DJs, spanning genres and spread across 10 venues in Brooklyn, including new hotspots like Good Room, Freehold and Club Lust Gentlemen’s Club (scandalous). And I gotta say, BEMF just keeps getting better! The organizers aren’t just slapping their logo on a schedule of run of the mill club shows – they are curating an experience.

In addition to presenting sets and showcases from international DJs, among which included huge names like Eats Everything, Laidback Luke and Mr. Carmack, the festival also featured discussion panels led by THUMP at Vice’s Brooklyn Office, and additional daytime programming in the form of every Brooklynite’s favorite weekend hobby, BRUNCH!
