$15-25 advance, $30 doors
Patrick Russell is a true veteran of the US underground, perhaps one of the last unsung heroes of a now lost era in the Midwest. A genuine sonic storyteller, he magically transforms the diaspora of acid, IDM, and pure jack energy into a deep, fluent sonic dialog that never fails to devastate both minds and dance floor.
A Detroit-bred DJ, artist and producer active since the early 90's, Patrick has now made New York City his home. Perhaps best known as a key figure in the legendary No Way Back parties, his ability to weave intensely unique, long-format narratives has earned him critical acclaim for his recent appearance at Berghain, not to mention featured spots at festivals such as Japan’s famed Labyrinth, Unsound, and his numerous appearances at DEMF/Movement. Patrick has also been steadily building a strong catalog of high-profile productions to compliment his increasingly varied, hypnotic, and in-demand DJ sets; his upcoming 3-track remix EP on The Bunker New York also marks his induction as an official resident DJ at the long-running Brooklyn party.
His consummate taste and disciplined execution have created a respect that cannot be purchased. Patrick Russell is not just a name to watch, he is someone to be experienced.SOUNDCLOUD FACEBOOK TWITTER RESIDENT ADVISOR RESIDENT ADVISOR FEATURE, NOVEMBER, 2016 PATRICK RUSSELL MIX: LABYRINTH 2015 (MIX RELEASED SEPTEMBER, 2017)
After a few years on hiatus we’re excited to relaunch The Bunker Limited! As soon as we saw the space at Ridgewood’s newest venue, Nowadays, and heard the incredible SBS sound system installed there, we knew it was time to take The Bunker Limited out of hibernation. And who better to relaunch the series in it’s classic one DJ all night original format than The Bunker and Interdimensional Transmissions / No Way Back resident DJ Patrick Russell who will be gracing the decks from open to close? If you were there for his legendary 10-hour closing set at the Unter x Bunker 36-hour rave at Market Hotel in 2016 or his 8 hour set at The Bunker LTD at Trans Pecos in 2014, then you know this is not a set to miss. Patrick has a unique ability to weave long-form musical narratives, so show up early and buckle up for the whole night as he is sure to take us on a journey from inner to outer space.
For those not familiar with The Bunker Limited: it’s an intimate event that began in the Public Assembly loft in 2011, and is meant for smaller rooms so capacity is much more limited than our other events. Tickets are strictly limited, there is no photography allowed, no guestlist, and the sets are not recorded. The idea is to create a special and unique experience just for the heads who show up.
