  3. We at Blkmarket Membership love presenting label showcases that stand amongst the crowd. This year 2010 alone was the year of such showcases for Blkmarket Membership. In February we brought you the famous Crosstown Rebels 'Rebel Rave' party. In March we brought you the Cadenza label showcase. In April we brought you Mobilee and the Freude-Am-Tanzen vs Oslo recordings showcase. In September we brought you Bpitch Control and Drumcode. Needless to say, these are all labels that have been in heavy rotation in our DJ sets for many years now. These labels all have had a strong impact on us and that is why we love present such rosters to all of you here in our city New York! Each one of these nights have been very memorable in many ways and have been sounding off to packed dancefloors at our parties! We know for sure that this party will be just like those Tonight Friday 1st October, our featured label showcase hails out from London. Leftroom Recordings has become a major label to hail out from the UK. Our good friend and label boss Matt Tolfrey brings his Leftroom Sessions to the U.S on tour. For the first time ever in New York, this showcase will be presented with a full packed roster featuring top label acts such as: founder Matt Tolfrey and label mate Inxec, Visionquest's Ryan Crosson and Freerange's very talented live act Pezzner.

  8. Dear Friends, We would like for you to save the date for Friday 17th September as Blkmarket Membership presents DRUMCODE. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT IS NOW MOVING TO A SECRET LOCATION, and will NOT be held at DISTRICT 36. ADVANCE TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AND YOU MUST RSVP. ALL INFORMATION IS BELOW. It's been a long time coming and we are happy to announce Adam Beyer for his Blkmarket Membership debut! I think as we all can agree upon, Adam Beyer can be seen as one of the biggest techno acts to hail out of Sweden. His 3 current record labels are Drumcode, Truesoul and Madeye which feature the hard percussive, loopy techno sounds which Adam Beyer portrays in his sets. His labels have been very forward thinking and have pushed his musical boundaries far and wide. For this event, Adam is bringing his label mates along side with him. Check out this great interview on Adam Beyer that was just featured on Resident Advisor. Get ready for him to throw down! Ida Engberg's name has been on our radar since last year's Sunday School For Degenerates event at WMC in 2009, where she completely destroyed in the indoor arena at that party. With not many productions under her belt, Ida's name has come up just from her DJing skills. Now under Adam Beyer's wing, you can catch her touring the world with him. Here new e.p on Truesoul is available now on Beatport. Alexi Delano has now been added to the lineup and what a great way to close out our party. After his set this past weekend at our Bptich Control party which turned many heads, it was only right to add Alexi, another label mate of Adam Beyer, to the roster for the ultimate blowout. A long time friend and one of New York's best DJ's hands down, Alexi's Discography and DJing has spanned over the course of 2 decades. Check out his recent collaboration E.P with Beyer on Drumcode called Sleep Horn. Residents Taimur & Fahad open up the party with an extended opening set.

  10. WE HAVE CHANGED THE LOCATION, THE NIGHT WILL NOT BE HELD AT LOVE. PLEASE RSVP TO LEARN ABOUT LOCATION. RSVP TO: [email protected] $15 W/ RSVP UNTIL 1AM / $20 W/ RSVP AFTER ALL NIGHT THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD FROM 11PM TO 7AM. On Friday 10th September we would like to announce 2 very special bookings. One is a booking that we have been working hard to make happen for very long time, and the other is one of the hottest live acts in techno at the moment. Blkmarket Membership would like to present Roman Flügel, Traversable Wormhole live along with Taimur & Fahad. Roman Flügel is one of the biggest names in the German dance scene and you can catch him at our party for a very rare stateside appearance here in New York. If you haven't heard DJ yet, you are in for a treat. Simply put, Roman Flügel is hands down one of the best DJ's in the business. He co-founded the very popular Ongaku and Klang record labels. One that everyone can relate to is the powerhouse Playhouse label which is definitely has been a label that has been a big inspiration for us at Blkmarket Membership. It's his label which Ricardo Villalobos released his critically acclaimed Alcachofa album on. It's his label that is also home to artists such as Isolee, LoSoul, Rework and Spektrum just to name a few. A man with many faces, Roman has produced under many aliases such as Sensorama, Acid Jesus, Eight Miles High, Soylent Green and Roman IV. Along with partner Jörn Elling Wuttke, they are known as the very popular live show duo called Alter Ego. They can be arguably considered as one of the major German dance acts in this scene. Some top dates have included Tribal Gathering Festival (UK), Sonar Festival (Spain), Time Warp Festival (Germany), I Love Techno (Belgium) and Wire Festival (Japan). We highly recommend that you do not miss out on catching Roman Flügel, so get ready of a very special EXTENDED SET by the man himself. Here is an amazing interview with Roman on Little White Earbuds to get you educated before our party. In 2009 a series of five anonymously produced ink stamped vinyl recorded releases appeared in the global techno scene under the mysterious guise “Traversable Wormhole." Within a month’s time of it’s conception Volume 2 of the series appeared and a huge buzz was soon amassed on the project. Accusations on who was the artist behind the project ran wild. People all over the techno scene had made theories to who was behind it. Word traveled fast through the wormhole and it was soon reported that globally respected dj’s such as Chris Liebing, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Mathew Herbert, Ryan Elliot, Andrew Galluzi, Surgeon, Function, Frankie Bones, Surgeon, DJ Deep & Radioslave were all supporting the sound of TW. As the series transgressed to Vol 5 by the year end of 2009 the mystique of anonymity continued to grow. To usher in the very start of 2010 “Traversable Wormhole” would release the sixth volume of the series. At the same time 20 year veteran techno artist/dj Adam X originally from NYC and now residing in Berlin was invited to partake in a feature called “Playing Favorites” on “Resident Advisor” the worlds biggest electronic music website. As Adam’s feature read towards the end he subtly took claim as the producer behind “Traversable Wormhole”. Currently “Traversable Wormhole” has found itself remixed from some of the best in the scene. The remix packages are being released on Chris Leibing's CLR label and artists such as Surgeon, Marcel Dettmann, Sleeparchive, Function, Chris Liebing, James Ruskin, Peter Van Hoesen, Terence Fixmer, Kevin Gorman, Tommy Four Seven & Brian Sanhaji have all taken a turn in remixing TW. Its been a big past 2 years for Adam and we are excited to have him perform for us as Traversable Wormhole Live. Residents Taimur & Fahad get things ready for the night on warm up duties. FRIDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER BLKMARKET MEMBERSHIP PRESENTS: Roman Flügel [Playhouse] EXTENDED SET Traversable Wormhole live [CLR/Traversable Wormhole] Taimur & Fahad [blkmarket Membership] More information available at: http://www.residentadvisor.net/blkmarket 11PM-7AM RSVP TO [email protected] PLEASE RSVP TO LEARN ABOUT LOCATION.

  11. As New York gears up for the second year of Electric Zoo Festival, the minds behind BlkMarket Membership, ReSolute and Esthetik are gearing up for another colaborative event. It’s one which will stay in your memories for many years to come. When a label is showcased, there is no other way than to present it in it's full on glory and with its biggest acts! On Sunday September 5th, Bpitch Control is making its way over the Big Apple with its queen who started it all, Ellen Allien. Along with her, the second in command, Sascha Funke will be bringing a kind of techno that sways between the polarity of emotional overload and concrete rationale. Kiki will be making his long awated return to New York and will be adding his unique style which encapsulate everything exciting about electronic music. Everyones favorite New Yorker, Alexi Delano, who has been a very important part of electronic dance music for the past two decades now, will be delivering his trademark sound he has been known for. Completing the Bpitch showcase will be a kid wonder Nicolas Jaar who will be performing a very special live set. Jaar is resposnible for releasing eclectic tracks and sets which are a divine connection between jazz, techno and anything else he thinks that belongs in between. If that wasn’t enough Taimur & Fahad, and Steven LeTigre are rounding up the night and making it all make sense! Line-up / Ellen Allien (bpitch control) Sascha Funke (bpitch control) Kiki (bpitch control) Alexi Delano (bpitch, drumcode, ReSolute) Nicolas Jaar live (bpitch control, wolf & lamb) Taimur & Fahad (blkmarket) Steven Letigre (esthetik) ADVANCE TICKETS HAVE SOLD OUT ON RESIDENT ADVISOR!!!

  12. With September almost nearing, we would like you to save the date as Blkmarket Membership invites you to its FINAL OUTDOOR DAYTIME EVENT of the summer on Saturday 28th August! We really wanted to make this one special, keeping you dancing with that summery music for your ears. If you didn't already get the memo, Bloody Mary, Ion Ludwig, Masomenos, Nina Kraviz and Deepak Sharma have all been invited to play on the bill alongside residents Taimur & Fahad. Bloody Mary has recently launched her own record label titled Dame-Music. This label already proves to be something amazing with only having 2 full releases since June 2010. Bloody Mary's breakthrough came not to long ago with her 1st artist album 'Black Pearl' debuting on Jay Haze's Contexterrior label. The album includes colaborations with friends Argenis Brito, Danton Eeprom, a remix by Sascha Funke, and an edit by label boss Jay Haze. One of the better albums to have come out in 2009. Check it if you haven't already and get ready to enjoy a Bloody Mary out in the sun. Ion Ludwig first grabbed our attention with his productions on Butane's Alphahouse imprint in 2006. His cutting edge sound definitely put him ahead of the game as an artist to watch since he first hit the scene. Just recently, he released his debut album 'Free K Loudwiggle' 3xlpon his own imprint Quagmire which is fantastic. He's been under our radar for a very long time and we are very happy to announce his first ever exclusive appearance in the U.S. Ion Ludwig will be performing LIVE. Masomenos can clearly be titled as one of New Yorks favorite international duos. Hot off the press, their Balloons album has just recently been released and the vinyl version consists for double 12" packs in 4 parts: Green, Orange, Pink and Blue Balloons. All 4 parts are mind blowing and have been in our record boxes since their release. Get ready for them to take you on a ride unlike no other with their signature live and DJ performance, all combined into one dark, groovy and funked out journey. Welcome to Masomenos. With only a few production releases and remixes, Nina Kraviz has become a favorite to many, both as a DJ and as a producer. She is part of Jus-Ed's Underground Quality family alongside DJ QU, Fred P, Levon Vincent and Anthony Parasole. Her track 'I'm Gonna Get You' that was released on Radio Slave's REKIDS easily gets the title of the sexiest record of 2009. This is her only exclusive stateside appearance and you will only be able to catch here at Blkmarket Membership. Deepak Sharma has been a long time friend and one of the many artists who has contributed to the New York scene for quite sometime. Deepak's Hidden Recordings label has been gaining alot of recognition. DJ's such as Danny Tenaglia, Richie Hawtin, Dubfire and Drumcell are just some of the few who have been canning some of the releases on his label. He's been a big supporter of Blkmarket Membership for a long time and we are excited to have him finally debut for us on something so special as this. Residents Taimur & Fahad close out this party.

We know Deetron via his productions on Music Man, and most recently, his joint collaboration with Seth Troxler on Circus Company. When we ask our friends about Deetron, they simply mention that he is a damn good DJ and that he needs to be invited to play our party. Pier Bucci's Chilean twist to techno has been a favorite of ours for a long time. Recently launching his own imprint Maluca, Pier continues to push the boundaries in his worldly sound. His latest album 'Amigo' just recently hit stores and is nothing short of excellent. His collaborations extend to past works with Argenis Brito as Mambotur, Monne Automne with Luciano, Glacier with Crazy Larry and the list goes on. Make sure to catch one of the most talented artists out there live in an intimate setting. Blkmarket Membership has become good friends with the Freak n' Chic DJ's.

We wanted to bring him for a show that was right and this event just happened to be that!

Shadi is a long time friend of ours and we are very pleased to have him finally for his Blkmarket Membership debut. Jeffrey Scott is a name that you will be hearing alot about. One of the main DJ's to hail out of Washington D.C's scene, Jeffrey has relocated to New York to pursue his music career.

  15. halcyon and dailysession.com present The Bandwagon with master of ceremonies Taimur Agha (BLK|Market Membership / halcyon | Brooklyn) and special guest Adultnapper (ransom note / poker flat | Brooklyn) Webcast LIVE from halcyon the shoppe Wednesday June 23rd | 7-9pm EST tune in on dailysession.com or hitch your horse at 57 Pearl Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn FREE SHOW About Adultnapper Adultnapper is a shadowy figure drawn from the dark reaches of Francis Harris’ imagination. Born in Las Vegas, raised on punk rock, and schooled in philosophy, Harris went from ‘hating dance music’, to establishing himself as a DJ/Producer with a unique sound and a global audience. His often introspective productions defy convention; relying instead on a sophisticated, song-based approach, marked by elaborate swung micro-rhythms, thick musical baselines, complex arrangements and haunting tonal melodies. As a DJ, primarily mixing records, Harris employs precision skills and thoughtful programming to expand upon Adultnapper¹s sonic territory. His trademark emotion-laden excursions have earned him turns at the world¹s most discerning underground events. In 2007, Harris launched Ransom Note, a concept label which, through music, text and imagery, tells the story of the Adultnapper character, an anti-hero who is part creative genius gone awry, part tortured dystopic philospher, part paranoid vigilante outlaw and part Harris himself. www.adultnapper.com www.myspace.com/adultnapper About The Bandwagon The Bandwagon is halcyon’s All New Old-Timey Record Review and Talent Show!
