  • The Bug

    As the stoic force behind God, Techno Animal, King Midas Sound, and the Bug, Kevin Martin has made a career out of fracturing clichés of dub, dancehall, dubstep, and more without sacrificing global legibility. His 2008 LP as the Bug, London Zoo, is a masterpiece of dystopian anger and frustration, with tracks that still easily […]

  • Eric Prydz

    The likes of Swedish House Mafia and Armin Van Buuren have previously played Madison Square Garden, infecting the traditionally rockist venue with their deafening electronic pop. Eric Prydz, the Swedish DJ whose “Call On Me” became a syrupy mid-00’s mainstay, will join that elite club when his EPIC 3.0 show takes over the hallowed venue […]

  • Andy Stott+Function+Demdike Star

    Performing publicly as Function, Dave Sumner is now approaching two decades as a hallowed force in New York City’s electronic music culture.

  • Evian Christ+Sophie+Nguzunguzu

    If you’re looking for some peaceful beats after a weekend of maximalism at Electric Zoo, stay away from Dark Disco. The three headliners here operate in distinct fields, but a lack of subtlety is one of their shared characteristics. Evian Christ graduated from uploading Youtube videos in 2011 to collaborating with Kanye West last year, […]

  • Charanjit Singh

    In 1982, Charanjit Singh released 10 Ragas To A Disco Beat, combining traditional Indian melodic structures with the then-new Roland TB-303 synthesizer that later became the basis for acid house. Now 73 and with a extensive career in Bollywood behind him, Singh has been recast as an electronic icon after an acclaimed re-release of the […]

  • Rustie

    Rustie is a Glaswegian DJ whose productions are a sonic embodiment of rave excess, blaring garish melody lines and sub-rattling bass alongside hyperactive rhythms indebted to hip-hop and trap. His first LP Glass Swords was a maximalist business card Rustie hasn’t failed to live up to yet, and the latest, Green Language, features guest verses […]

  • Basement Jaxx (DJ Set)

    The British dance-pop behemoths Basement Jaxx have been revived in 2014, teasing their forthcoming LP Junto with three piano-driven tracks that highlight the sugariest of their typical capabilities.

  • Nautiluss+John Barera

    With releases on Tiga’s Turbo and a recent appearance on Daniel Avery’s Essential Mix, Canadian producer Nautiluss is slowly but surely gaining traction internationally with anthemic, rubbery house. He makes his debut at favored Brooklyn haunt Bossa Nova Civic Club alongside John Barera, an equally rising Bostonian DJ who is one half of production duo […]
