BASEMENT: Clarisa Kimskii / Umfang / Young Male
STUDIO: Mike Servito / Dee Diggs

Young Male returns, stepping in for Haruka, who had to postpone due to visa issues. The NY artist has been a leading force in the city for a decade. His first transmissions embraced a stark, austere palette, using his trusty 909 and little else to build raw beat tracks with plenty of soul. Since then, Young Male has evolved into a true powerhouse, crafting scorching gems and fully embracing a towering sense of scale. Clarisa Kimskii has been taking NY and the world by storm. Her tunneling, hypnotic sets pulsate with an entrancing energy. An outstanding DJ whose work in electronic music goes back decades, Kimskii creates vortexes that you cannot escape. Umfang’s nervy, vinyl-heavy techno sets draw on a rare sense of rigor. As a DJ, she embraces stark loop techno and tightly-arranged 90s rarities, seeking catharsis through reduction, hypnosis and grit.

Servito brings the jacking power as only he can. The Detroit-born DJ is a definitive artist: a longtime resident of The Bunker, his hit-and-run sets helped to set the standard for modern DJs in the city. Always a force, Servito pulls on the erotically-charged sounds at the root of Chicago house and Detroit’s earliest techno while leapfrogging across decades to pull from all eras and genres - the nastier the better. Dee Diggs similarly reaches back to the classics to design the future. She invoked a lineage of Black, queer dance, luxuriating in the timeless and of-the-moment alike.
