Altær returns to BASEMENT, with Stephanie Sykes, Volvox and Auspex. Berlin's Stephanie Sykes has been a steady force over the last decade. Her releases and sets move with an assured range, sometimes immersive and restrained, other times ferocious, but always controlled and nuanced. Volvox remains one of NY’s most reliable sources for charged, devious techno. Altær founder Auspex has been a presence in the city since his first sets. His vision of techno as a ritual of power, domination and spiritual catharsis shows in his selections: granite-dense bangers, noise-saturated meltdowns and grooving industrial that feels like high-velocity collisions.
