BROOKLYN ELECTRONIC DANCE ROUND UP: FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1

Searching for a nightlife event this weekend seemed like a pretty easy task once I had all of the listings right in front. Whether it was combing through Resident Advisor, hordes of Facebook events or from word of mouth, it really came down to the various goings-on this friday over the bulk of saturday. Starting with the bass exploits of Addison Groove, veering off to Fabric (UK)-resident Daniel Avery and even a late night cap at Le Bain with Joakim, there’s plenty to do within a single night.

Feb 1: Addison Groove with FaltyDL & Max Pearl at Cameo Gallery

Anthony Williams began his career under the much more bass-heavy, dubstep guise of Headhunter. This project took off in 2007 with several successful releases on the influential Tempa label. Suddenly in 2010, Mr. Williams released one of the most influential bass music tracks Footcrab under his new Addison Groove moniker. This track began to get regular play within the dance music community including techno and house music DJs such as Ricardo Villalobos. For this special one night only, Anthony will be joined by Ninja Tune’s FaltyDL who has recently released the fantastic Hardcourage LP. Max Pearl of the smart-as-hell Cluster Mag warms up the night with tracks rich in rhythmic history, soul and integrity. The whole thing goes down at Williamsburg’s Cameo Gallery exactly at midnight.
