Oktave presents Derek Plaslaiko & Eric Cloutier photo gallery
Oktave is extremely pleased to host two of NYC's hottest stars, Bunker residents and techno phenoms Derek Plaslaiko and Eric Cloutier. They've made quite a name for themselves internationally with Derek just back from Berghain in Berlin, and Eric fresh from Labyrinth in Tokyo. As long running residents at the wildly popular Bunker parties at Public Assembly in Brooklyn, they'll be bringing the beats to the LES on October 8th. Oktave resident Jeff Derringer will open and close the night, including selections from his recently completed techno album 'Century City.'
Newcomer White Slab boasts a 'secret room' with killer sound just off the kitchen entrance. Just pass through a couple of doorways and just follow the music. They've got a great bar with a wide array of beers and specialty cocktails. Beers start at $4 and cocktails at $6. Vodka drink specials for $3 from 11-12pm.

Derek Plaslaiko is considered by many to be one of the best DJs in New York City (including the Village Voice, who named him "New York’s Best Techno DJ" in 2006). In the first half of 2009 Derek toured the US to promote his mix on the "Spectral 50" compilation. 2008 was also a big year for Derek, with a successful 20 city Spectral Residency tour of the US, extremely well received podcasts for Resident Advisor and XLR8R, and many amazing sets at the Bunker party in Brooklyn.
For his part, Eric Cloutier is quietly making himself stand out amongst Detroit's next generation of producers and DJ’s. He performed at both 2004's Movement festival as well as 2006’s Detroit Electronic Music Festival. In 2005, he was handpicked as a chosen replacement for the next batch of DJ’s at Detroit's monthly "Untitled" parties, and in 2007, the up-start record label Mood Gadget.
Oktave resident Jeff Derringer has been performing in New York and its surrounding environs for the last ten plus years. He is a DJ, producer, drummer and multi-instrumentalist. Jeff hails from Chicago, where his electronic music inclinations were originally sparked and honed. He recently completed 'Century City,' an album-length techno project recalling early '80s film scores by the likes of Giorgio Moroder and John Carpenter. Jeff has produced remixes for Lykke Li, Northern State and Galactic, amongst a host of other artists.
