New York City Weekend Preview: May 29 to June 1, 2014

DJOYbeat Event Spotlight

A-Trak/Cam’ron @ Terminal 5, Saturday May 31

Dipset! Dipset! T-5 will be rocking courtesy of Harlem’s finest and A-Trak. A-Trak is getting top billing, but this night is going to be a collaborative effort in full effect. Ever since Cam signed to Fool’s Gold a little while ago the scene has been buzzing.

First came “Humphrey.” Then came the “Dipshits” video that reunited the entire Dipset crew with the Fool’s Gold family. This is all speculation, but if any of the major players from either crew are in New York there’s a good chance they’ll be dropping in. If you can grab tickets you should consider this one. It could be the beginning of a wild summer for the duo’s collaboration.

Thursday, May 29

Rudimental (DJ Set) @ Output

The quartet bring their chilled, DnB sounds to Brooklyn with a packed bill behind them. The group has been trending up the last few years, so expect another stellar show. Remember as always to keep those phones in your pockets. Output is about the dancing, not the selfie-ing.

Fred Falke/Autograf @ Verboten

French house is always at its finest when Fred is around. The guy has been going for almost 20 years strong with little signs of stopping. Take the hike to Brooklyn for this one, for sure. Best part of it all? Tickets are only $10. Can’t beat that, can you?

Trance.Here.Now. with Kyau & Albert @ Cielo

The German duo will certainly be bringing their style of trance to Cielo’s usually stellar Thursday night bill. The intimate setting may be packed with these guys on the decks. You may run into the thirsty Thursday crowd but the real dance music addicts should trump any minor headaches you run into on the dancefloor.

Also Consider: Paskal Daze & Tom Breu at TBA Brooklyn, Black Light Smoke & Justin Miller at The303, House Party with Just Blaze, DJ Soul and more @ Webster Hall, Under the Electric Sky After Party @ LAVO, Isadora @ Glasslands

Friday, May 30

Keys N Krates @ Webster Hall

Canada’s bass banging trio will be getting Webster in shape during their Girls and Boys series. If these guys don’t win you over, how about a bill rounded out by Break Science, Shiftee and Alex English? If you’re looking for night of hip hop and catchy bass this will be hard to pass up.

Fool’s Gold presents Nick Catchdubs & Friends @ Webster Hall

If the main room isn’t your speed, check out the weekly hip-hop show featuring Fool’s Gold’s Nick Catchdub’s and his friends. Alex English will be doing a dual set that with a set in the studio as well. If you haven’t checked out what the Studio has to offer yet, check it out for sure.

12th Planet @ Pacha

Friday’s bass heavy night in New York City continues with 12th Planet’s stop at Pacha. If you’re in any way familiar with Pacha you know that it will be packed wall to wall. Be sure to get there early to avoid lines and stake a spot out on the floor. It may fill up, but at least Pacha knows how to throw down when the bass drops.

Ivan Gough @ Slake

The Australian house sound hits Slake with Ivan Gough. Gough has been known as one of the most versatile artists out there today. Knowing that, you can expect an original set from him that should expand the limits of progressive and electro house.

Red Bull Music Academy Festival presents Lit City Trax @ The Westway

Get ready to put on some fancy footwork as Lit City provides the griminess. They have a reputation of getting the crowd to be their dirtiest. If you’re looking to get down in the worst way, this is the one you should consider. The best part is that The Westway usually has room to move for you and your friends. Put on those dancing shoes.

Also Consider: San Soda @ Output, NYC Legends! with Johnny Dynell, Justin Strauss & Andy Pry at Cameo Gallery, IAN Pooley at The303 at Louie and Chan, Ian Friday & Lou Gorbea at Drom, Young Heel EP Release Party @ Glasslands, Vicetone @ Slake

Saturday, May 31

Technoir: AC Slater @ Slake

Slake has been building up a reputation as a venue you need to see in New York. If you haven’t checked it out yet, Saturday may be the night. With AC Slater’s brand of electro house and dub Slake should be alive with top notch energy.

Monoloc @ Pacha

Monoloc brings gritty beats to the Pacha floor alongside local talent Ace Alvarez. It could be any interesting night at the club. The notorious crowd of sore thumb looking business people might not know what to do when faced with all this grime. Bring your popcorn.

Borgeous @ Webster Hall

One of dance music’s catchiest producers takes the stage for Webster Hall’s long-running Brite Nites series. Get ready to get decked out in your brightest gear. Bangers like “Tsunami” and “Celebration” will be in full effect as well as his recent remixes. Be sure to check out on of Spinnin’s crown jewels this weekend.

Pierce Fulton @ Marquee

Marquee might not always get the most positive reviews. Yet, one thing that gets rave reviews is their sound system. Pierce Fulton’s brand of progressive house should be a perfect fit. You may or may not love the venue (Let us know!) but Pierce should be bringing the sounds to at least make the night a good time on that front.

Seth Troxler & Ben UFO @ Output

He may not always be a fan of big festivals and the current scene, but that doesn’t stop Seth Troxler from killing any set he touches. With that mentality, Seth and Output are match made in electronic music heaven. Joined by house/dubstep veteran Ben UFO, this should be a fun, chilled night of quality sets.

Also Consider: Rise at Night @ Webster Hall, Droog, Matthias Tanzmann and more @ Verboten, Eli Escobar & Friends @ Cielo, Shannon F @ Glasslands, Real Talk with Max Pask @ Le Bain At The Standard

Sunday, June 1

Three, Boris Werner & Jubilee @ Output

Afternoon raves are all the rage, and with Output’s Sundays on #Theroofbk its no surprise why. Quality electronic music always sounds great. When the ticket price for three awesome acts comes in at under $20 it sounds even better. These vets will have you moving early, if you’re not too hungover.

Lee Curtiss, Jozif & Garrett Belschner @ Verboten

Verboten’s brunch day starts off at noon with food and beats in their sunny Cabaret Bar area. Brunch is served til 8 p.m. but the tunes go until midnight. Entry is free before 8 p.m. with tickets only $10 after that.

Benny Soto’s Birthday w/ Danny Krivit @ Santos Party House

DJ Benny Soto, Danny Krivit and his friends take over Santos to give Benny the birthday he couldn’t have without the 718 crew around. Even on a Sunday expect Santos to be going like it’s a Friday night. If you’re looking for a party, Santos is the place you should consider. After the brunch is through cap your weekend off with a birthday party. Not a bad deal, no?

Also Consider: Mister Sunday @ Industry City, Ebb + Flow & TBA Brooklyn present Sunset Debauchery @ Circle Line Cruises, Nouveau York X Japan Society Gallery with Rich Medina, Alex From Tokyo @ Le Bain At The Standard
