The Bunker presents Donato Dozzy, Jan Krueger, Mike Parker, Derek Plaslaiko, Spinoza, and Eric Cloutier at Public Assembly 70 North 6th Street 21+, 10p-6a
After almost a year of working out the details of his arrival, The Bunker is very proud to present the US debut of one of the most exciting names in techno, Italy's Donato Dozzy. While he has produced many great records over the years (and continues to do so on his amazing new vinyl only label, Aquaplano), Dozzy is most well known for his mind-bending late night DJ sets at places like Panorama Bar, where he was the afterhours resident DJ from 2004 to 2006, and Labyrinth Festival in Japan, where his epic closing sets the past two years have already become the stuff of legend. If you like music you've never heard played perfectly to a point that you feel like you're hypnotized, then we highly suggest you come to this event and listen.
We couldn't really invite Dozzy all the way to Brooklyn without inviting his dear friend Mike Parker, who lives nearby in Buffalo, New York. Mike has a solid career as an art professor at SUNY, which has allowed him to treat techno as more of an art project than a career, which is a refreshing approach to say the least. He has an all analog studio set-up and records his tracks live in one take, which are then self-released with his own screenprints as cover art.
Jan Krueger has been involved in the German techno scene since the mid-90's, doing everything from DJing, to throwing parties, to a recent stint as sales manager at the highly respected distributor Word and Sound. He recently left Word and Sound to focus on his DJ career and Hello?Repeat, the label he started with Daze Maxim. Jan has already made quite a name for himself in Berlin, appearing regularly at Watergate, Panorama Bar, and Club Der Visionäre. His rise to fame in North America has happened incredibly quickly. His first North American gigs were in Detroit during 2008's festival weekend at the Need I Say More 3 afterparty at the Old Miami, and the Accelerate closing party at The Works on Monday. He made quite an impression at both gigs, and kinda stole the show from bigger name DJ's. He's completely torn the roof off of The Bunker all sixtimes he's appeared since then, and has become a Bunker resident DJ. Jan is joined in the front room by Bunker residents Derek Plaslaiko and Eric Cloutier.
