The Bunker NYE with ADAB, Antenes, Patrick Russell, Lauren Flax at Market Hotel
December 31, 2019
DJ, producer and electronics artist Antenes operates a laboratory of self-made sequencers and modular synthesizers built in the name of rhythmic, sonic, and spatial exploration. Tracing the lineage of synthesizer operation to vintage telephone equipment and inspired by the Buchla 100, her curious studio discipline of manipulating repurposed switchboards was fueled by the desire to breathe new life into long-silenced machines, transforming signal paths through which voices once travelled into sequences that burst with percussive energy and evolving textures, bouncing sound through sound like so many distant AM radio stations on a late night drive. Her 2015 solo production debut, The Track of a Storm EP on L.I.E.S. reveals three tracks of otherworldly techno infused with “lazer shot synthwork,” “ghostly noise layers,” “muscular bass shapes and sparking percussions," appearing on the 2015 best-of lists for Juno and Fact magazine.
A Brooklyn resident by way of Chicago, Antenes' eclectic DJ sets dive into acid-laced techno, shimmering electro, shadowy atmospheres and beyond. With an upcoming EP due out on The Bunker NY in early 2018, she has been kept busy behind the decks of underground events globally, including The Bunker New York, De School Amsterdam, Tresor Berlin, Corsica Studios London and more.ANTENES.NET SOUNDCLOUD RESIDENT ADVISOR THE BUNKER PODCAST 142: ANTENES (FEBRUARY, 2017) RESIDENT ADVISOR FEATURE: "PLAYING FAVORITES" FEBRUARY, 2017 DEKMANTEL PODCAST (DECEMBER, 2019) MONUMENT PODCAST (OCTOBER, 2019)
Patrick Russell is a true veteran of the US underground, perhaps one of the last unsung heroes of a now lost era in the Midwest. A genuine sonic storyteller, he magically transforms the diaspora of acid, IDM, and pure jack energy into a deep, fluent sonic dialog that never fails to devastate both minds and dance floor.
A Detroit-bred DJ, artist and producer active since the early 90's, Patrick has now made New York City his home. Perhaps best known as a key figure in the legendary No Way Back parties, his ability to weave intensely unique, long-format narratives has earned him critical acclaim for his recent appearance at Berghain, not to mention featured spots at festivals such as Japan’s famed Labyrinth, Unsound, and his numerous appearances at DEMF/Movement. Patrick has also been steadily building a strong catalog of high-profile productions to compliment his increasingly varied, hypnotic, and in-demand DJ sets; his upcoming 3-track remix EP on The Bunker New York also marks his induction as an official resident DJ at the long-running Brooklyn party.
His consummate taste and disciplined execution have created a respect that cannot be purchased. Patrick Russell is not just a name to watch, he is someone to be experienced.SOUNDCLOUD FACEBOOK TWITTER RESIDENT ADVISOR RESIDENT ADVISOR FEATURE, NOVEMBER, 2016 PATRICK RUSSELL MIX: LABYRINTH 2015 (MIX RELEASED SEPTEMBER, 2017)
Lauren Flax is a Detroit native and long time Brooklyn resident who has been performing internationally for many years in a variety of projects and genres. She is known as a versatile and unique artist, an in-demand DJ and a producer with an extensive discography of original tracks, collaborations and remixes, including work with a long list of world class talent such as Grammy nominated artist Sia, Little Boots and Tricky. She has toured worldwide as a member of the successful trip-hop project CREEP and can currently be found giving life to hedonistic dance floors at her many DJ gigs, most recently at House of Yes and The Bunker in Brooklyn, Panorama Bar, Buttons and Whole United Queer Festival in Germany and London's Pickle Factory.
The past several months have seen Lauren busy in her home studio, refining her analog hardware live set and working on her solo productions. In the last year, she released Dance Trax Vol. 16, a 5 track EP of acid-tinged jack tracks on DJ Haus’ Unknown To The Unknown label and contributed standout tracks to a number of dance music compilations, including a collaboration with Tigga Calore on Allergy Season’s Physically Sick 2. Lauren shows no sign of slowing down with an acclaimed EP out on The Bunker NY and 2MR records and upcoming collaborations with The Juan Maclean, Chambray, Craig Williams and Gettoblaster. Additionally, Lauren was recently featured in Mixmag and tapped for a Rinse.fm residency.SOUNDCLOUD RESIDENT ADVISOR FACEBOOK LAUREN FLAX: DJ MAG NORTH AMERICA COVER FEATURE LAUREN FLAX: BEATPORTAL COVER STORY APPLE MUSIC MIX MIXMAG FEATURE, SUMMER 2019 BOILER ROOM, DECEMBER 2019
As usual, we're doing a small friends and family New Year's Eve for our core crowd. If you're sick of big amateur hour crowds and NYE hype, this is the party for you.
For those of you who want to come celebrate at midnight with us, we have Antenes providing one of her super heady opening sets. For those of you who want to toast at home and come a little later, we'll have peak time sets from The Bunker all stars Lauren Flax and Patrick Russell. If you're looking for some afterhours action, we have In Training's ADAB closing the night with a set that should take us to the outer limits of our minds.
While we always hold some tickets for the door, this is a limited capacity event, so we highly recommend getting your tickets in advance.
