❝ DREAMS 3.0 ❞ w/ GRIMES ♡ PICTUREPLANE ♡ ARCA ♡ REZZIE

since our last time hosting the grimes its been amazing watching her ascend to such heights, and on this night she will be floating down from her purple castle to fill our favorite brooklyn haunt with her favorite spells. pictureplane will then cleanse your third eye with glowstick acid leaving you enlightened, and rounding out the bill nicely is our favorite new producer in brooklyn, arca. some people hope their whole life for their dreams to become reality, but on this night, reality will become just a dream.

Da Mind of Traxman / TONIGHT in BK


we’ve been delayed on posting this on the blog-blog for a while now, but traxman’s mind of traxman lp is a juke masterpiece and one of the best albums we’ve heard so far this year. the chicago veteran has been important in the evolution of chicago house into juke, and touches on so many styles and insane drum patterns and sample flips it can be dizzying, but as a whole the record is a serious psychedelic slice of pure soul music from the future.

let these amazing exclusive tracks traxman hooked us up with warm you up for his set tonight (fri the 25th) at 285 kent alongside Howse, Octo Octa, Ñaka Ñaka, The Range, and yours truly. come get your mind reprogrammed to 160bpm, or as traxman said, it’s like you’re missing “ringling brothers, the greatest show on earth” check it out.

traxman – lifeeee is for ever
traxman – footworkin on air
traxman – 1988
bonus:
traxman – budda worx
traxman – movinnnn
traxman – 1976


WEIRD TERRAIN: Traxman, Howse (Record Release), ÑAKA ÑAKA, Octo Octa, Rezzie

Traxman just dropped a juke masterpiece with his “Mind of Traxman” LP on Planet Mu. He is one of the best vinyl djs in the world. Howse finally gets a proper release with “Lay Hollow” on Tri Angle on the 28th and coming in from MA with The Range for the occasion, bringing their wicked strain of ghost juke with them. Ñaka Ñaka is in town from Mexico after killing it at our Festival Nrmal party there recently. 100% Silk’s Octo Octa is a wonder with his live manipulations of his silky beats. Disparate spells will join and intermingle on this Weird Terrain. Touch it.

Traxman – Footworkin on Air
Howse – VBS
Octo Octa – I’m Trying
Yeah Rezzie – Clean Two

weird magic presente: Geneva Jacuzzi as Auto Garvo in Idiot Menagerie of the Automatic Dream Crud (+ Ital, Veronica Vasicka, Steve Summers)

we are thrilled to co-present this special full theatrical performance by geneva jacuzzi, who, if our last encounter with her is any indication, is pretty much the epitome of our weird magic, and this time, for the first time, geneva’s music will come to life with an “elaborate theatrical set, geometric choreography by the dance-troupe Spazz Hands, elaborately bizarre costuming, and absurdist aerial acrobatics.” i’ll be opening the night with a 2-hour set, followed by geneva’s performance, after which the train will be chugging all night with beats provided by minimal wave’s veronica vasicka, and a tag-team set between steve summers and ital. let the full description tantalize you, below.

WEIRD TERRAIN | THIS FRIDAY

The impact which created the Caloris Basin was so powerful that its effects are seen on a global scale. It caused lava eruptions and left a concentric ring over 2 km tall surrounding the impact crater. At the antipode of the Caloris Basin lies a large region of unusual, hilly and furrowed terrain, sometimes called “Weird Terrain”.[source]

this friday is going to be very special.

huerco s, the 20 year old musician/video artist/dj/party promoter from kansas city who we’ve been utterly obsessed with and seen many of you readers feel the same way about, is coming in from kansas city to play his first show.
lf wind (logan takahashi of the illustrious teengirl fantasy) will also be making his live debut with a late night set presenting his solo work for the first time.
slava (who you’ll be hearing a lot more from soon when he drops his next e.p. on 0pn’s software label) will be performing a rare audio + visual set.
innergaze (100% silk) and terekke (l.i.e.s.) both weave some of the best and rawest analog bedroom electronic music in brooklyn.
the dream dj lineup of huerco s., blondes, jan woo, and trance_ebooks will be keeping you dancing all night, along with myself.
taking care to keep this inexpensive and all ages, rule-less and transcendent.
there will be more details that i’d rather leave to surprise.
this friday, feel the magic
