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.

All this and more below!

Brooklyn Electronic Dance Round Up: SEPT 18-19

OK OK, we’re still holding onto that sweet summer heat for now, and it’s a good thing too as this weekend’s shaping up to be one chock full of daytime rooftop, BBQ events, and some secret warehouse locations made for those early morning sunrises. First, kick things off with a Brooklyn staple a la The Marcy Hotel, the jazzy house vibes of a LIVE No Regular Play set as they bring some crewlove to the neighborhood with Tanner Ross & Slow Hands for their second night in a series at Cameo. Then head over to Greenpoint where electro banger extraordinaire, LOUISAHHH!!! celebrates an EP release with like minded mates Lauren Flax and Young Male. Take things even further and stay up late heading deeper into Bushwick where Rinsed puts on a proper warehouse rave featuring Pearson Sound, Anthony Parasole and more. Come Saturday, it’s all about being in the sunshine as Tiki Disco returns to the OUTPUT Roof toting maximum outdoor elation. Finally, cap it all off with the 2nd Annual Level BBQ featuring L.I.E.S. Records alums Marcos Cabral and Terekke. …and we’re spent!

Brooklyn Electronic Dance Round-Up: Saturday November 17th

So it’s that time again… the last week you have to yourself before it’s off to Mom and Dad’s in the the suburbs for Thanksgiving break.

But before it’s all turkey-sleep-shopping-repeat, it’s time to take a look at what’s good this weekend in North Brooklyn and what’s worth getting down to.

If Nu Disco and Deep House are more of your thing, then head over to Cameo Gallery for their monthly Brooklyn Bass residency. This Saturday they’ll be hosting Justin Miller (DFA / Have a Killer Time) and Nooka Jones (Percussion Lab), along with the three residents: Judge Wise, T’Angelo, and Evan Michael. After serving as taste-maker for DFA Records over the last years, Justin Miller is now on the verge of launching his new Have A Killer Time Label that should see releases by the end of this year.

You can RSVP at [email protected] for reduced entry as well.
