Balance returns to BASEMENT with an expansive lineup: NYC’s Juliana Huxtable is a rare icon in electronic music, bridging the worlds of fine art, high fashion and fevered raves. The multidisciplinary artist - she’s remixed Bjork, published an acclaimed book of poetry, collaborated with Sophie - brings an unapologetically personal, at times confrontation and always profound presence to the DJ booth. Her sets play with clanging metallic grooves, excoriating noise blasts, rapturous refrains and heady collages. Vincent Neumann is one of Leipzig’s leading lights. The Unitas Multiplex label boss is beloved for his tight, versatile DJing. His mixes glide through immaculately curated mixes of techno that’s alternatingly spacious, rigorous, throwback or moody. Yet it always coheres, and it’s this intuitive sensibility that have earned him a devoted international fanclub. NY’s prince of acid Justin Cudmore fills out the lineup. Balance foounder and Bunker artist brings a slinky but tough energy that exudes mischief and unguarded sensuality.
