The Bunker presents Celebrate 303! with Mark Verbos and Carlos Souffront at subTonic
March 3, 2006
We skipped the Winter Music Conference in Miami last year, and plan to skip it again this year (it's really not our cup of tea at all). When everybody came back last year, the word on the street was that a big festival highlight was Mark Verbos's amazing acid house set using all the classic Roland hardware (TR-909, TR-707, TR-808, MC-202, and of course the TB-303). Verbos is a veteran of the early 90's midwest rave scene, where he played many Drop Bass parties, so he knows a thing or two about acid. He never looked back and has been producing great records and playing at huge parties ever since, building up a formidable discography. Check out his website for proof of all this and some nice downloads. Tonight he will help us to celebrate 3/03 with his live acid house set, which tore the roof off the Bunker back in July. This time we've asked him to go even heavier on the 303. http://www.simple-answer.com/
Carlos Souffront is a DJ's DJ from Detroit with impeccable taste who apparently has one of the most insane acid collections in the world. His taste, style and integrity have made him one of Detroit's most sought after young DJs. He is a sometimes member of Ectomorph and DJ's with BMG on a weekly radio show on Ann Arbor's WCBN. Carlos claims that he just wants "to expose the funk and psychedelia of my favorite records in a new way". He hasn't been to NYC since he played at Magda's Gel & Weave party at Openair about 4 years ago, and we're very excited to bring him back for this special event.
