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.

Brooklyn Electronic Dance Round Up: Aug 1-2

August has officially begun and this summer has been flying by way too fast! Don’t fret though, there’s still loads of parties in the neighborhood to keep you content. Be sure to stop by Cameo tonight as Neon Indian returns for a DJ set with his friends in The Great Void. Then it’s off to Output who have a free before midnight event with Toronto native, Nautiluss and local disco fiends, Justin & Justin. If you’re living further out, I definitely recommend the monthly Jack Dept. party at Bossa Nova which features Chi-Town’s Chrissy, and Boston’s John Barera amongst others. By the time Saturday rolls around, find yourself at FIXED presents Simian Mobile Disco for an intimate post-PS1 DJ Set. Finally, cap the whole weekend off at The Wick for S!ck Magic with Paul Johnson, Egyptrixx, Sinden, and Doctor Jeep.

March is upon us and I’ve already felt a tad warmer this morning hoping that spring was here. Alas, Brooklyn is still cold as hell at nighttime, and yes you’ve still got to check that pesky coat wherever your going. However, this weekend is shaping up to be a good one. With an eclectic array of events this friday and saturday, theres enough to get down to, ranging from minimal techno to wild and crazy disco.

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.
