Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival has announced the first wave of programming for its burrow-wide 2018 edition. The eleventh annual BEMF takes place October 3-6 at some of the city’s hottest venues —including Good Room, Output, and Avant Gardner.

The tenth annual BEMF starts on Thursday, October 4th, with DJ Hell and Massimiliano Pagliara kicking off the festivities at the Good Room while Breakbot ushers in the weekend over at Output. The following evening sees Motor City Drum Ensemble at the Avant Gardner while Shlohmo‘s WEDIDIT crew takes over one of the separate clubs at the compound. That Saturday, DJ Seinfeld will take over the Good Room on his DJ-KiCKS tour, while Mount Kimbie  —who are about to release a DJ-Kicks mix of their own — will take over the Avant Gardner in support of Nina Kraviz.

BEMF will also be offering a limited number of reduced all-access passes in recognition of “the increasingly difficult costs associated with living in Brooklyn, both for artists and music lovers alike.”

Low End Theory releases The Gaslamp Killer residency with the series

This post was originally published on this site

Low End Theory, an LA localized “weekly party series” that fosters hip-hop, experimental, and electronic aesthetics has released William Bensussen from his residency with brand.

Known by his stage name, The Gaslamp Killer, Bensussen’s discharge from Low End Theory arrives in the wake of the sexual assault allegations alleged against the artist just yesterday on Twitter by a user named Chelsea (@chelseaelaynne) who claimed that the DJ drugged and raped both her and a friend during a party at The Standard in 2013.

While Chelsea’s statement currently remains alleged, Low End Theory has decided to part ways with Bensussen, announcing Bensussen’s termination in an official statement likewise posted to Twitter.

Bensussen was supposed to appear at Low End Theory’s New York City event yesterday, the performance scheduled as a part of the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival‘s (BEMF) tenth anniversary. BEMF cancelled the show, writing, “Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival has chosen to cancel the Low End Theory show. This is not the appropriate time to present these artists in light of the allegations that were made last night.”

The Gaslamp Killer has since denied the veracity of the allegations.
