■ MATRIXXMAN ■ Charlie is a staunch ally of the queer underground. His sound tends to be cold and mechanised yet somehow retains an element of warmth and soul. After a steady output of EPs on labels like Dekmantel, Planet Rhythm, and Delft, he released his first full-length album on Ghostly International in July of 2015.
■ SANDRIEN ■ Holding both residencies at De School and Amsterdam's infamous and long-running queer party Is Burning, Sandrien will make her USA debut at Basement. Often referred to as Amsterdam's best DJ and best kept secret, this year Sandrien made appearances at both Awakenings, Labyrinth, and Bassiani. We are super excited to host her for the very first time in New York.
■ JASON KENDIG B2B MIKE SERVITO ■ Mike Servito needs no introduction in New York. For this edition of Balance there is a very special, never before done b2b set planned to open the night. Both artists will be making their debut at Basement. Stoked! Inspired by the electronic music emanating from Detroit’s airwaves while coming of age, Jason Kendig has been pursuing the dance music pulse for over two decades. From his first residency at Detroit’s Motor Lounge in the late 90s to his current role as an integral member of the esteemed Honey Soundsystem– Jason never fails to make others move through his ability to reference dance music’s past yet keeping an ear to the future.
