See our full round-up of the events below, including a live performance from our September cover stars Bicep, an imprint takeover from Berghain’s coveted Ostgut Ton, a two room warehouse party from Green Velvet and Gorgon City and a highly anticipated set from Leon Vynehall.
Thursday October 12
Tokimonsta, Kami, Run P. at House of Yes
The series kicks off with a special party headlined by Tokimonsta, with support from Run P. and Kami at Bushwick’s theatrical venue House Of Yes.
Tokimonsta recently shocked the music scene when she publicly spoke on suffering from a rare and potentially fatal brain disease called Moyamoya. The producer underwent two surgeries and intensive therapy, having to relearn how to speak and understand music. Her BEMF performance follows her full recovery and latest album release.
DJ Marky and Reid Speed at Good Room
Brazilian superstar DJ Marky comes to quench Brooklyn’s thirst for drum ‘n’ bass while on his North American Hospitality Tour. Joining him at Good Room will be Speed Reid and unannounced special guests.
Friday October 13
Leon Vynehall, Billy Caldwell at Good Room
One of the weekend’s most exciting BEMF functions arrives with Leon Vynehall as the main attraction at Good Room. The mysterious producer, who rarely comes to New York, is currently on an eight-date mini-tour and will be joined by local funk connoisseur Billy Caldwell.
Pete Tong and Chambray at Analog BKNY
BBC icon Pete Tong will be performing at Brooklyn’s relatively new Analog BKNY. Famous for being called “the best sound in NYC”, the club hosts Tong shortly off the announcement of his new Ibiza Classics show.
Pete Tong will be supported by Berlin’s ULTRAMAJIC champion, Chambray.
Lustmord at Music Hall Of Williamsburg
The wonderfully obscure and ominous Lustmord will perform a special live set with a full arsenal of electronic instruments at Music Hall of Williamsburg. The producer, who recently scored the new Paul Schrader film First Reformed, recently released an in-depth, space-inspired album titled “Dark Matter’ using audio recordings from NASA and private astronomy institutions.
Low End Theory at Paper Box
High velocity, high energy and big sound from the Low End Theory showcase at The Paper Box with a handful of very special guests. Daddy Kev, scratch master D-Styles and Nobody will share the stage at the intimate Brooklyn space.
