Rhythmism.com is proud to present the first RHYTHMISM.COM BEACH PARTY at the stunning Water Taxi Beach with the top-notch techno talents of New York City on Sunday, June 8th.
Berlin Schmerlin... Rumors of Techno's death in New York City have been greatly exaggerated. We are a city teeming with first-rate talent, both homegrown and imported to our shores. Adultnapper emerges from the dark recesses of his shadowy lair in Brooklyn to bring us his minimal movers and hypnotic grooves fresh from his Audiomatique 2.0 compilation on Poker Flat. Derek Plaslaiko's residency at the steadfast techno weekly - the Bunker - stands witness to his Detroit techno roots and after a crowd-rousing performance at the Real Detroit Underground stage at the Movement festival, we know he's one of the faithful. Another Detroit expat (Dearborn is close enough), Matthew Dear now holds residence in DUMBO and has been a constant on the NYC scene when not in demand all over the globe under the various guises of his split persona machinations; Audion or the full band Matthew Dear's Big Hands. Stadenco is our very own Rhythmism.com favorite and his impeccable musical tastes have won favor from the most discerning hometown crowds in most every NYC nightclub. The Blk|Market Membership boys Taimur & Fahad seem to have filled the void the Robots left after their untimely escape from earth. The BLK|Market parties at Bar 13, Love and those elephantitis after-hours are a growing legend they've been taking their parties on tour at WMC in Miami and at a shocking example of the real Detroit. Finally, Three's renown rep continues to grow since his early days in Tampa and the legendary Snatch parties to his adopted hometown here. His unmatched skills go well with his unassuming persona and for many disciples in the know, there is no better DJ.

Water Taxi Beach is the ultimate NYC open-air spot this summer. And this June 8th it is the beach of dreams for techno-loving New Yorkers. With sand, river views, and the towering skyline of Manhattan making the scene uniquely urban, Water Taxi Beach revolutionizes the summer social experience for city dwellers. Now, the city’s top party purveyors are making it a magnet for great music too. Three minutes from midtown and steps from P.S.1, Water Taxi Beach is a central venue in the burgeoning Long Island City scene.
