The underground is massive, and now, immersive. On Tuesday (Jan. 17), New York City-based underground dance music promoter Teksupport is announcing a collaboration with ArtsDistrict Brooklyn, a 25,000-square foot venue offering cutting-edge 360 degree projection mapping, a revolving stage and state of the art audiovisual technology. This series will feature high-caliber producers playing in venue, the tech capabilities of which will make for whimsical, visually stunning art-forward dancefloor experiences.
Located in Greenpoint overlooking the East River, the indoor-outdoor space (which was formerly the House of Vans skatepark) offers skyline views of Manhattan. This creative canvas will feature some of the key names in underground dance music for the series, which will extend through 2023.
The shows launch with a double-header this weekend with a Jan. 20 performance by Nina Kraviz and Magdalena, and a Jan. 21 show from French duo KAS:ST and German producer Kevin de Vries. A showcase during New York Fashion week (Feb. 10-15) will feature Seth Troxler, HVOB, Carlita & Ahmed Spins. (This event will be hosted by Carlita’s Senza Fine series.) Additional names and dates will be announced in the coming weeks and months.
Teksupport, one of the scene’s most respected underground house and techno promoters, has previously hosted shows in similarly unique venues, including a submarine factory, navy yard, subterranean ballroom and Grand Central Station.
“Teksupport is reimagining what is possible in electronic music in NYC, and we are thrilled to provide a platform for innovative artists and TekSupport’s unparalleled events,” Jacob Feldman, ArtsDistrict’s Chief of Business Development, says in a statement. “Our shared passion for pushing boundaries and providing a one-of-a-kind experience for our audiences makes this partnership one that will allow us to bring a truly immersive and unparalleled electronic music experience to New York audiences.”
