For our return to Basement we are joining forces with our friends at SMOKE MACHINE Taiwan, the crew behind the renowned Organik festival as well as the long-running Smoke Machine podcast, party series and recently launched record label.

Smoke Machine resident DISKONNECTED joins us for his North American debut, part of a 10th anniversary world tour that will also be touching down in Pittsburgh and LA. After joining the crew in 2010, his music and taste helped forge the style and vibe of the whole project, leading to the birth of the podcast. diskonnected is a consummate resident DJ who always plays the right music at the right time, and we’re sure he’ll close this party perfectly.

AGONIS is a resident DJ at Elysia in Basel and co-runs amenthia recordings together with Garçon. He has tracks on both Smoke Machine 12”s, and has appeared at Labyrinth, Organik, Parallel Festival and many fine clubs around the world. His palette is quite broad, bringing together everything from complex ambient and techno to more uptempo breaks. We are quite excited to present the NYC debut of his live set.

Representing The Bunker, we have a live set from ABBY ECHIVERRI. Her debut EP on The Bunker last year and her track on the 15 Years of The Bunker compilation really turned heads worldwide, garnering positive reviews everywhere. She spends a lot of time making each live set completely different from the one that came before, each one seeming to get even better somehow.

ANTENES x ERIKA will be opening the night with an extended b2b DJ set which some of you may have been lucky enough to catch last May in Detroit at The Bunker at Tangent Gallery on Memorial Day. Their set pretty much blew away everyone in attendance and BMG called it “a truly fresh take on techno, simultaneously futuristic, scientific and totally visceral. It felt like a new frontier.” We’re giving them plenty of time to stretch out so we recommend arriving early to take it all in.

For those who haven’t been, BASEMENT is NYC’s newest techno club. Housed in the basement of the Knockdown Center, it’s a stripped down dark room with Funktion1 sound and low ceilings. Perfect for The Bunker, which started as a literal underground dance party at subTonic, we will be returning to our subterranean roots with this one.
