It's always a treat when Philip Sherburne plays at the Bunker. This guy has exceptionally deep knowledge of electronic music, which he shares with us through his writing for Pitchfork, Earplug, XLR8R, and many other places. Very few people write so intelligently about the music we care about so much. But we wouldn't invite him to the Bunker if he was merely a good writer. Philip has an insanely good ear, a record collection to die for, and an intuitive knowledge of how to move the dancefloor. Check his webpage for links to his writing and music.

Qzen has been involved in many aspects of electronic music culture over the past ten years. She spent many years investing in drum & bass culture with the female-run production collective Groundscore and their internationally recognized weekly, Eklektic. In the early '00s, she expanded her repertoire from her drum & bass roots to a hybrid of tech-house, electro, and techno, shirking genre to incorporate countless party-jams-waiting-to-be-played. In 2004 Qzen released a single with her band The Invisibles (featuring subTonic staffers Alex and Kimi) on DJ Hell's International Deejay Gigolo label. She collaborated with John Tejada by lending her vocals to his smash hits "Sweat (On the Walls)" and "Paranoia". Currently, Qzen works as iTunes's Dance & Electronic Music Editor (pretty much controlling what electronic music gets included in the iTunes store) and continues to DJ regularly. With her passion for deep, technical, versatile music and a talent for moving the audience, Qzen's DJ sets are not to be missed.
