But before it’s all turkey-sleep-shopping-repeat, it’s time to take a look at what’s good this weekend in North Brooklyn and what’s worth getting down to.
If Nu Disco and Deep House are more of your thing, then head over to Cameo Gallery for their monthly Brooklyn Bass residency. This Saturday they’ll be hosting Justin Miller (DFA / Have a Killer Time) and Nooka Jones (Percussion Lab), along with the three residents: Judge Wise, T’Angelo, and Evan Michael. After serving as taste-maker for DFA Records over the last years, Justin Miller is now on the verge of launching his new Have A Killer Time Label that should see releases by the end of this year.
You can RSVP at Bass.Brooklyn@gmail.com for reduced entry as well.
This weekend, Percussion Lab teams up with The Cove’s expats TURRBOTAX® in a venue the two have never been in before: The Counting Room. They will be revisiting a line-up not seen since earlier in the year including residents Braille and Contakt in a back-to-back free for all. Opening are the juniors Nooka Jones vs. Rem Koolhaus and also Enoe vs Space Jam. The whole thing starts at 10PM and will go way into the early hours. Expect low end bass tunes and ethereal jams.
Next up is a collaboration between the roaming Rinsed parties and the Broken Teeth Crew. They’ve brought in Planet Mu’s Ital Tek who is known for his futuristic dubstep soundscapes and sealed the deal with support from Howse, Lamin Fofana, Scallywag, and Rinsed Residents Dan Wender & Blacky II. You can enjoy these earth rattling sounds within the confines of the new zen-serene, Ran Tea House located at 289 Kent. Now if those aren’t contradictions I don’t know what is.
Here’s a shocker: normally a long time staple at Public Assembly, The Bunker will be located at the underground 285 Kent warehouse space this weekend. Here you’ll find London’s Untold headlining a solid bill alongside the party’s founder, Bryan Kasenic as well as a return from the sometimes Table Tennis.fm guest, Nihal Ramchandani. Jack Dunning’s production work as Untold has reinvigorated the climate of dance floors around the globe. Through his work with Hessle Audio, Clone, R&S and Hotflush, Dunning elevated dubstep to uncharted territories, combining it with grime, jungle and more recently techno. The party starts at 10PM and for just $15 will last until 5 in the morning.
Finally, if you’ve made it this far, you’ll note I’ve saved one of the best for last. Mr. Saturday Night is back indoors after a whirlwind of a summer in the Gowanus Grove, but that shouldn’t take the gusto out of their sets. Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin will take the decks in Brooklyn after having just landed off a plane from London where they played the legendary Plastic People club. This Saturday they’ll be hosting the entire night to the tune of jacking house and raw techno with a touch of vintage soul and blues.
