Somewhen returns to BASEMENT. The Berghain regular is a master of slamming, high energy techno. The recent premier of his track “437p” shows him to be in top form, marshaling thick, roiling low end and galloping percussion for an instant peak time hit. His sets can go from the heady and psychedelic to full on attack mode. Wherever he lands, Somewhen’s music always retains an unhinged edge. Nur Jaber also makes her return to the club. The Lebanese-born, Berlin-based artist is one of the best at spiraling, invocative techno. A formally trained musician, her productions have a notable assurance and depth. While her peak time energy goes to explosive heights, Jaber is also well-versed in playing the long game; Ukrainian DJ Ana B is fast becoming a regular at BASEMENT. Her dark, industrial-tinged techno mutations are making waves in the city, while her outspoken political critiques against the invasion of her country have galvanized her peers.
Rose Kourts and X-Coast are two artists who immediately made their mark on STUDIO. Rose Kourts opened the room on its first night. Her infectious energy and versatile engagement with the crowd have won her a growing international fan base; expect to hear more from Rose Kourts. X-Coast plays with the templates of classic rave and house, bringing both a playful boisterousness and a serious production edge. Since his breakout in 2016, he’s been steadily committed to the NY underground, injecting a dose of the no-BS energy of his Serbian home into the scene.
