The Bunker presents Nicholas Sauser and Habitrail at subTonic
The Bunker presents Nicholas Sauser and Habitrail at subTonic 107 Norfolk Street 21+, 10p-4a
Nicholas Sauser is one half of the duo Socks and Sandals, who have rocked the Bunker dancefloor many times. Working in a similar vein to that project, Nicholas makes weird and fluctuating minimal techno. With one foot planted firmly in the history of house music, the other is planted gently in a pulsating future filled with skimmering sonic oddities. Sauser basically spent the entire month of May in his studio (okay, with a few breaks for movies and the Bunker) to prepare a new live set for his appearance at DEMF two weeks ago. This hard work payed off as the new live set is amazing. Nicholas is the owner and operator of the Kompakt distributed Goosehound label, which has made a big splash with the first two releases (we've already heard everyone from Luciano to Dan Bell rocking this shit). http://www.goosehound.com/
Habitrail is Todd Polenberg, who has made both appearances as both a visual and audio guest at the Bunker in the past. A long time idm dj and producer, lately he has been working on danceable minimal techno and breaks. Last we heard him, he got the dancefloor started properly at one of the final parties at the now legendary Wolf+Lamb Marcy Hotel space. Todd was massively inspired by a trip to Mutek last week, so he's approaching this set with fresh ears.
