Head to the plug.dj blog to check out my recap of last weekend’s Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, in which I attempt to take in as much of the 4-day electronic music deluge as possible before falling asleep.
Performances took place at multiple venues simultaneously, forcing a number of questions on attendees: Who do I want to see? When are they playing? When should I get there? How do I get there? As only one guy, I set out to make sense of the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival and find as many answers as I could. […]
What I found was that despite impressive shows of creativity from many of the performers at Brooklyn EMF, it was occasionally difficult to answer the fundamental questions of who, when, and where. Additionally, issues with basic festival logistics such as capacity, scheduling and presentation showed up frequently and consistently enough that I felt distracted from the music as often than I felt lost in it.
Check out the preview of this weekend’s Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival that I wrote for the plug.dj blog. It highlights the sets I’m most excited to see, including Todd Terje, Oneohtrix Point Never, Actress, and more. I’ll be posting updates all weekend and will have a recap of the fest early next week.
The Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, which goes down this weekend in Williamsburg, focuses on those artists who are pushing boundaries, reimagining the past, and exploring a future of endless possibilities. The Festival brings nearly 70 artists to eight stages from November 7th to 10th, and includes just about every style from rap to house to ambient. That’s a lot to take in, so I decided to do you a favor and preview some of the sets I’m most excited to see.
Todd Terje - “Inspector Norse”
Here’s the first release from a bunch of material I’ve been working on this year. Fractures is three tracks created entirely with software and digital samples - no analog equipment was used during the making of this EP. In keeping with the D>D>D process, Fractures will be available in an edition of 25 CD-Rs. Stream and download it for free on Bandcamp, or message for a CD. Enjoy!
