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!

Party outdoors at Output this summer on The Roof



Beloved Williamsburg nightspot Output is known for a premium experience based on expertly curated music and a souped-up sound system. For the summer months, they’re bringing the party outdoors, with world class DJs and live music on The Roof. The events kick off during the afterwork hours on weekdays and mid-afternoon on the weekends, going right up until night commences at the club below. With a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline, attendees have their choice of lounging on the cushioned beds and couches or putting in work on the grassy dancefloor.

Programming on The Roof includes club nights that have defined Brooklyn nightlife, from the freewheeling Tiki Disco to the longtime stalwart Kaviar Roof Club, who is bringing in names like Metro Area and Wolf + Lamb. CLUBBIN LUV, a Thursday weekly with no cover charge, will be collaborating with some of electronic music’s most influential collectives including NinjaTune, Safer At Night and House On Mute. The summer will also feature the weekly Sundays On The Roof, sporting top names in slick house music and offering free entry until 4pm with RSVP. Some very special one-offs are also on the docket, including Solidisco, DJ Spinna’s Michael Jackson Tribute, and soulful house bulwark 718 Sessions.

To complete the sensory bliss, Vendy Award finalists Bolivian Llama Party are offering delectable victuals, including their chola sandwiches and saltenas. The Roof is also bringing back its signature boozy slushies, namely the watermelon infused “Vodka Gallagher” and the Red Bull collaboration “Tequila Sunrush”. All part and parcel to Output’s mission to, in every sense of the word, elevate daytime clubbing.
