The Bunker presents Mike Shannon, DJ Abstract, and Jon Santos at subTonic 107 Norfolk Street 21+, 9p-4a
Luckily for us, Mike Shannon is coming to NYC with the Mutek entourage for the Saturday party, and will play a special DJ set at our pre-party on friday night. Mike has the technical and programming skills that only come with many years of DJing (he has been at it for over ten years). He is also an amazing producer, with releases on Force Inc, Logistic, and his own Cynosure imprint. Mike is a key part of the Montreal minimal techno scene, and we are thrilled to have him play tonight. Other members of the Mutek entourage will be in attendance as well (not playing records, just hanging out) ... so come say hello, Canadians are notoriously friendly! DJ Abstract is Alex, who has been our barback and door person for the last month or so. Dude has always been enthusiastic about the music we play, so we had to get his story. Turns out he put out some records on Palette (that's John Tejada's label) that we own and love. His band The Invisibles put a record out on DJ Hell's International Deejay Gigolos label. Oh yeah, he's also one of the most well respected US drum'n'bass producers. He has a huge discography spanning many labels, including many on his own label Pneuma. He's kinda new to town and hasn't really played out much yet. We're expecting good things from his set. We met Jon Santos in the design world. Among many other things, he is known in New York for throwing the insanely popular Average Saturdays at subTonic last year. So now we know him as a great DJ who crosses genres and always gets people on the floor.
