Teksupport brings Time Warp back to New YorkTime Warp Ny 1

Time Warp has been a crown jewel of the techno sphere since its inception 25 years ago. Having passed that milestone birthday this year, it only felt right the German institution would return once more to New York for a two-day showing at the Expo Center in the Bronx neighborhood. Time Warp has enlisted their usual local collaborators, Teksupport to help facilitating the return.

The festival first made its way to New York in 2014 and returned in 2015 before taking a four year break. In previous editions, New York received rare appearances from the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Sven Väth, and more. This year’s edition takes place on November 22 & 23, and with the lineup being revealed in the coming months.

Being my first House of Yes and Caravan Gitane party, I was pleasantly surprised with how this past Saturday night turned out. I usually don’t stay out past 3:30am in my old age, and I was still moving at 5am. I was prepped with the fact that it’d be in a massive warehouse (awesome) with

New York’s Highline Ballroom to close after 12 years of operation

New York’s Highline Ballroom to close after 12 years of operationHighline Ballroom

After 12 years of operation in the heart of Chelsea, New York’s Highline Ballroom will close its doors, according to venue owner, Blue Note Entertainment Group.

“Unfortunately after 12 years our landlord has decided not to renew Highline Ballroom’s lease,” Highline Ballroom owner, Steven Bensusan, said in a statement following Blue Note Entertainment Group’s announcement of Highline’s impending closure. “For over a year we were led to believe that a renewal was imminent, however it is now clear that the landlord has other plans for the building. This is obviously a growing trend within the New York real estate market impacting various entertainment venues and businesses,” Bensusan added.

Although Highline Ballroom will vacate its current location at the end of its lease, the venue will not bid New York City farewell. “We plan on reopening Highline Ballroom at a new location in the Chelsea/Meatpacking District and are currently looking at options,” Bensusan stated. “We hope to be able to announce our plans soon.”Highline Ballroom has yet to disclose the details concerning its final event, but can be expected to soon set a date for its finale show. It is unclear whether the nightclub will honor its previously booked programming, which spans February to April.

Highline Ballroom finds company among fellow closing New York nightlife hubs, Output Nightclub and Cielo. New York’s nightlife scene, however, maintains its constant ebb and flow, with new clubs expected to open and veteran venues preparing to reopen while others shutter. East Village hotspot, Webster Hall recently announced its epic and long awaited reprisal, slated for Spring 2019.

Five tracks guaranteed to amp attendees for Cirez D & Adam Beyer’s b2b performances this weekend

Five tracks guaranteed to amp attendees for Cirez D & Adam Beyer’s b2b performances this weekendCirezDAdamBeyer 3 24 18 AJRphotos 086 0

Eric Prydz will have gone b2b to b2b…to b2b to b2b with Adam Beyer under his Cirez D alias by the end of the weekend, in a double-pronged series of performances of mythical proportions. Originally announced in August, Cirez D and Adam Beyer’s joint b2b bookings generated considerable buzz among fans of the electronic luminaries, and not without good reason. The duo’s seminal, sold out b2b appearance in March 2018 during Miami Music Week evidenced the pair’s kinetic energy behind the decks, and their unparalleled live presence led many longing for a follow up Cirez D& Beyer booking.

Listeners were in luck, as Cirez D and Adam Beyer announced not one, but four ensuing fall dates. Cirez D and Beyer brought their legendary b2b format to Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on November 23 and 24, and will collectively make their way to a Brooklyn warehouse to play some proper techno from November 30-December 1. Dancing Astronaut has compiled a list of five tracks to set the mood for Cirez D & Adam Beyer’s highly anticipated East Coast arrival.

Adam Beyer – “Your Mind”

A techno oriented, retrospective review of the landmark releases of Beyer’s storied catalogue would be remiss not to mention fan favorite, “Your Mind.” The product of Beyer’s collaboration with Bart Skills, “Your Mind” is an extended, eight-minute effort that entrances with its looping vocal centerpiece, a spoken component that repeats the phrase “you’re losing your mind.” The hypnotizing track– interestingly enough, and perhaps much to listeners’ surprise–was never intended to gain a full-fledged release. The song was born as a tool mix that Beyer and Skills finished at a later date.

Cirez D – “BLACK HOLE”

Even in its acknowledgment of the rate at which, and breadth with which Prydz bestows new music upon his listeners, the title “prodigal producer” still doesn’t seem to be an adequate classifier of Prydz’s momentum. Prydz treated Pryda enthusiasts to a stimulating and meticulously constructed new EP in May 2018 by the name of Elements. The Swedish phenomenon then dropped of a three-track Cirez D EP, DARE U. Of the three heart-palpitation inducing inclusions to figure on the EP, the third and final track, BLACK HOLE, was perhaps the most exemplary of Cirez D’s dark, brooding approach to techno, and accordingly functions as an apt warm up track for Cirez D & Adam Beyer’s Brooklyn bookings.

Adam Beyer – “What You Need”

Tonally lighter than some of the moodier selections that comprise Beyer’s catalogue, “What You Need” is an airy, atmospheric reprieve from tenebrous techno. Pulsating synth work sets the track’s mid-tempo pace, while subtle, short pops of vocal accents lend a sense of variety to the near seven-minute song.

Cirez D – “BACKLASH”

Industrial melodics find full figuration in “BACKLASH.” A master at melding different sonic textures, Cirez D adds a gritty edge to the velvety underground quality of “BACKLASH” to play up sound contrasts. The effect is a general sense of surprise that follows each second of “BACKLASH,” the listener unable to predict the course that the song’s elements might take. Cirez D released “BACKLASH” in 2017, when he released the number alongside another track, “THE TOURNAMENT.”

Adam Beyer – “Stone Flower”

The Drumcode head illustrates the power of intricacy on “Stone Flower.” A tightly woven track that sources much of its potency from a titillating looping vocal two-minutes in, “Stone Flower” layers one constructional electronic embellishment atop another for depth. The result is a clean and refined production that has aged exceedingly well in the years that have followed its 2015 arrival.

Teksupport brings rare Maceo Plex Mosaic show stateside

Teksupport brings rare Maceo Plex Mosaic show statesideMaceo TekSupport Off Brand Project

It’s not often that Maceo Plex‘ name appears stateside; he only comes to his homeland a handful of times each year. Even rarer is his Mosaic party series, which began as a residency as Pacha but has since evolved into a global institution for the avant garde of dance music. The award-winning series has only touched down in the states a couple times.

Come February, New York City promoters Teksupport will be ushering in Mosaic‘s return stateside, this time with Helena Hauff, Axel Boman, and Danny Daze in tow. Given each artist’s reputation for defying genres and delving into the eclectic in their own unique ways, the upcoming iteration of Mosaic is primed to keep to its ethos of conjuring colorful, multifaceted nights of electronic music. The announcement follows a recent appearance by Maceo Plex in New York, in which Teksupport joined forces with streaming giant Cercle to bring him to the Hudson River. Hopefully, this signals a potential visit westward as well.

The Meadows joins the festival graveyard – for now

The Meadows joins the festival graveyard – for nowMeadows Music And Arts Festival

After months of speculation, the founders of New York’s Meadows Music and Arts Festival have confirmed rumors that the festival will not be returning in 2018.

Founders Entertainment, the company behind festivals like Governor’s Ball, created the event in 2016, and it took place near Citi Field in 2016 and 2017, boasting headliners like Kanye West and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Unfortunately, its location in a parking lot near the New York Mets’ Citi Field didn’t make for the most ideal festival spot, leading the company to take time to regroup and consider a location shift for 2019.

A statement on the festival’s website reads as follows:

“After careful consideration, we have decided to take 2018 off and focus our efforts on returning in 2019. Our goal from day one has been to create a marquee, multi-day, fall music festival in Queens. After two great years at Citi Field, we were excited to shift our venue focus entirely to Flushing Meadows Corona Park – the location we always hoped to move to in year 3. However, after review of our application by NYC Parks, we were not able to obtain a workable multi-day permit for a 2018 festival in the park. Our sights are set on The Meadows in 2019, and we look forward to working together with all city partners and agencies.”

Childish Gambino to host three concurrent ‘Summertime Starts Here’ events this weekend in New York, Los Angeles, and London

Childish Gambino to host three concurrent ‘Summertime Starts Here’ events this weekend in New York, Los Angeles, and LondonHttps Hypebeast.com Image 2018 07 Childish Gambino Summertime Magic Feels Like Summer Summer Pack Stream 00

New York, Los Angeles, and London will serve as the sites of three concurrent Childish Gambino events the weekend of July 14 – 15, as the “This Is America” producer brings his enigmatic Summertime Starts Here event experience series to each city in staggered intervals.

Summertime Starts Here initially debuted in New York on July 13 at Union Square, and will remain in the ‘Big Apple’ into Saturday, July 14, where the second day will commence at Fort Greene Park from 12-4 PM EST. Los Angeles will also receive the Summertime Starts Here experience on July 14. The West Coast edition of the event will take place at California’s Santa Monica pier from 12-4 PM PST. On Sunday, July 15, Gambino’s nomadic fan event will relocate to Fairfax High School from 12-4 PM PST.

Last but certainly not least, London will also be privy to Summertime Starts Here, with the UK version occupying Gunnersbury Park from 1-10 PM GMT. Although Gambino shared little detail about the specifics of the Summertime Starts Here series, each event will supposedly be free of charge. It is unlikely that Gambino will perform live in each city, given the overlap of the three events, though if any mortal man could do it, it would be Donald Glover somehow.

The Summertime Starts Here run follows the July 11 release of Gambino’s new EP, Summer Pack.
