3D Imaging Projections For The First Time In New York City
One of the rising stars of the New York techno scene. From her performances at Miami’s Sunday School for Degenerates, to San Francisco’s LoveFest, to her residency with New York promotion agency ReSolute, AirDrop and beyond - the upward momentum of her dj career is evident. Connie recently saw her debut EP release on AirDrop, with her “Sunset Tribe” EP. She also has remixed for Restart and Stone and will remix the Klectik 007 EP, featuring Dilo and Gurtz.
As minimoo's resident, he's played alongside some of today's biggest minimal techno artists, in the US and abroad. Memek's reputation for an energetic and at times totally sordid style of mixing has made him a favourite not only in New York but also in Detroit during DEMF and in Berlin at Watergate. He's currently working on music and will release a remix and some of his own tracks later on this fall.
DjCylo has always absorbed new trends and kept his finger on the pulse of electronic dance music.
Talking about Cylo is talking about MGR, Cylo is the master mind behind Massive Groove, organization base in UK, Berlin and New York where he currently reside.
One of the most interesting lessons I have learned is that whoever is behind the decks in a club has total control over the moods of each person in the room. So how then I choose to play will, in turn, affect everybody else mood. Quite a powerful responsibility, and one which must be treated with respect.
Originality, determination, and unwavering dedication to create new sounds, has garnered him high respect amongst his fellow DJ’s and devoted fan base. As DJ and roommate Gaby Dershin – (AstroGlyde), once put it, “when you listen to LeTigre spin you get a sense of who he is…if you didn’t know him before, you will when he’s done.” It’s these rave reviews that allow LeTigre to play and continue pursuing house music as an ass shaking art form. As quoted by one of DJ Magazine’s top music editor’s, “LeTigre not only puts everything he is into his music, but everything he’s ever wanted, and everything he wants to be…
Juan is a fixture in the NYC techno scene. Tommie Sunshine can attest to that by saying, "This guy was into Electro when you were listening to Nirvana for the first time. One of the most for real motherfuckers on the block." As an early adopter of the developing genres, the culmination of timing and location definitely played their roles to get Juan into techno. In addition to conducting hundreds of interviews from the top echelon of international DJ's and marquee EDM artists [from now defunkt 5 year program FREQ, PSEUDO], Juan has curated numerous events, large and small. He has toured Europe and Japan [twice] by supporting a menagerie of very recognizable DJ personalities.
In 1999 he moved to New York City and opened his own company "Music & Song Inc." Within 6 months he was collaborating with US Labels like: Strictly Rhythm, Atlantic Records, Nervous Records, Cutting Records, Gossip Records, Bounce, Logic, and Jive Records. Around the same time he began Djing around town in various clubs such as: GBH, Cheetha, Zanzibar, Orchard Bar, Centro-Fly, Void Club, and the Boom Club where he was the resident DJ.
As of late, Junior continues his work in the studio with Gianni “Blackjack” Fontana of Explode Records, collaborating with new artists and musicians on upcoming house music projects. His recent releases on SoulShine Recordings and Next Dimension Music including collaborations with singer and multi- intsrumentalist Noelle are making DJ top ten lists and gaining worldwide support.
Music is the central focus for Gesine, a girl from Hamburg, Germany. Her life revolves around groove and sound let it be private, professionaly or as DJ everything is rhythm and its emotional intensity. Even though Hamburg is not known as an electronic hotspot, the hanseatic city does, however, offer a fruitful soil for a range of musical and pop-cultural forms of expression.
After making her way to New York about a year ago Gesine become a highly in demand DJ, and earned a residency at the SpaceCamp events. Her last set in the SpaceCamp room at Essential Show the past Saturday was one of the biggest surprises of the night.
