Check out these top notch sets from Circoloco’s Halloween warehouse party lineupCircoloco Halloween

While the vast number of halloween parties drawing top tier talent all around America, the anticipation may be at its highest in New York City. However, of all the wild yet intimate club shows and raucous warehouse performances in store for this weekend, it’s possible that the hottest night out this weekend may be Circoloco‘s Halloween warehouse show. With their killer lineup of Peggy Gou, The Martinez Brothers, Virgil Abloh, and Blond:ish all throwing down in a warehouse at the historic Brooklyn Navy Yard (pictured below), the Teksupport hosted event is slated to be a special one.

In preparation for the event, we’ve compiled some of the best sets from the Ibiza party legends’ New York lineup.

The Martinez Brothers b2b Loco Dice b2b Seth Troxler @ Printworks London 

This stunning set is impressive for a multitude of reasons. Firstly, it’s not often that so much techno talent comes together in one location – and what a location it was. In the disused printing press facility that is Printworks London, the DJs put on over six hours of entrancing house, techno, and everything in between. If The Martinez Brothers can channel a similar energy this weekend, Brooklyn is in for a treat.

Peggy Gou x Boiler Room @ Dekmantel 2017

Peggy Gou has seen a rapid ascent in the world of house and techno over the past couple of years, and one can only think that it has something to do with her live sets. Touching on acid, disco, jazzy house, and more, Gou flexes her mixing prowess at the Boiler Room stage at Amsterdam’s Dekmantel Festival. Filmed in the classic Boiler Room style, it’s easy to see how good of a show the DJ puts on from the fans behind her alone.

Virgil Abloh b2b TaEast @ Boiler Room Weekender

Another Boiler Room veteran, Kanye West’s creative director and one of Time’s most influental people of 2018 always keeps fans guessing with his sets. From underground trap music and Kanye tracks to acid and techno beats, expect a diverse selection from this cultural magnate this weekend.

Blond:ish @ Untold Festival Romania

If this set is any indication, Blond:ish will be providing a more textured sound than her lineup counterparts. Bringing the sounds of the underground to Untold Festival’s beautiful Romanian forest location, grooving basslines and an atmospheric vibe lead to a calming yet engaging set. Hopefully bringing similar energy to Brooklyn Navy Yard, Blond:ish is an underrated act to look out for this weekend.

ADE will not eject Konstantin from 2018 lineups, despite call for DJ’s removal following sexist remarks

ADE will not eject Konstantin from 2018 lineups, despite call for DJ’s removal following sexist remarksBelgrade At Night 1

Amsterdam Dance Event organizers will not remove Konstantin from the festival’s 2018 lineups, even as a petition against sexism in the music industry that calls for the cancellation of the Giegling artist’s ADE bookings continues to circulate. “We–women, dancers, DJs, writers, bookers, activists, and music-lovers–are tired of sexism in the electronic music industry,” the petition opens, “Overt sexism by male DJs makes the scene inaccessible and dangerous for women…Sexism is not a problem exclusive to [Konstantin], nor to the Giegling crew.” The document, which maintains that Konstantin “should not be playing during ADE” given the producer’s alleged history of flagrant sexist remarks, garnered more than 2,000 signatures in just a matter of days.

Konstantin is scheduled to appear on behalf of Giegling, but also features on lineups for Circoloco, Loveland, NGHTDVSN, and Next Monday’s Hangover. Although ADE does not singlehandedly select the artists for each promoter’s event slated to occur in tandem with ADE, the festival will not bar Konstantin from performing at any of the ADE parties.

“Of course we have seen the petition,” ADE organizers said, “we agree this is an important topic to address.” ADE organizers additionally announced their intent to have Konstantin attend a panel topically focused on sexism in the music industry, and “discuss” the topic. ADE referenced, the “global network of women who work in the music industry,” as one of their 2018 collaborators, yet the female empowerment network stated that they had “absolutely no involvement” in an ensuing panel devoted to sexism, “or any other sexism or diversity -related programming at ADE” this year.

The public outcry in response to Konstantin’s representation among several ADE event lineups follows the DJ’s 2017 remark to Groove magazine that female DJs are not only “over-promoted,” but “often worse than men in the industry. DISCWOMAN also corroborated claims of Konstantin’s sexism, tweeting “Since we’ve started we’ve never experienced a man dj be a disparaging as Konstantin has…If you don’t care about men saying things like this, then you are contributing part of the culture that values men more than women.”
