(In Progress Headliner)
One of the first DJs in Eastern Europe region to fight for the popularization of electronic music in the mid 90’s, Velizar? began his DJ career in Bulgaria at the tender age of 14. By 15, he had developed a passion for electronic music and was a full time DJ, playing across the country. He held residencies at the legendary Country Club on the beach in Sozopol, as well as at the Chervilo, Cutty Sark, and Kampione Clubs in Sofia. He played alongside such legends as John Digweed and sven vath. Since 2003, Velizar has been actively involved in the NYC underground music scene with residencies at Midway, Click, Highline, Café Deville, Moomia, and has participated in various parties and events in Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, Mexico City, Berlin, London, and Barcelona. Currently, Velizar? is the headline DJ and music director for In Progress, and holds the residency for Elegantly Wasted Saturdays with Velizar? @ Vault in the Lower East Side.
Full of innovation, Velizar? delivers diverse and dynamic sound within the pulsating grooves of Electronica House Techno. Bored of self-imposed conceptual constraints, Velizar shows that he possesses a musical versatility - and, more importantly, that he has enough soul to musically communicate feelings to delightfully break into our consciousness.

Fall On Your Sword
FALL ON YOUR SWORD is the latest creation of Will Bates and James Rickman – a native Londoner and Californian, respectively, who spent the last four years playing in a rock band called the Rinse. In addition to playing all over the city, The Rinse released an album in Japan and toured the US and UK, sharing stages with everyone from Maroon 5 to …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead. But last year they came to a disturbing realization: no matter how packed a room is, people just don’t dance to rock bands. As this was their main reason for playing music in the first place, Bates and Rickman decided to start over. Bates hauled out the samplers he had used as a London DJ, and Rickman played guitar and sometimes hit the drums as hard as he could. Along the way, their love of classic sci-fi and horror movies entered the mix, which explains their tendency to drop samples from Flash Gordon, Blade Runner and more. With the addition multi-instrumentalist Leo Sidrin, the band was complete. Samplers, synths, guitars and drums are traded between the three members, who also do a lot of shouting into microphones.
