Visuals & Lighting by: Lucid Studios
Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things; the past is gone, the future is not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires.
With three international artists and two US Debuts, your time will be spent at an undisclosed location in Brooklyn. The event is BYOB, so bring your drink of choice. Contribute to the community bar if you wish. We are supplying ice, mixers, and White Label Yerbe Mate. Ticket holders will receive the location day of the event.
When it comes to the next generation of heads shaping the UKâ€™s contemporary dub and electronic scenes, Ossia is high up on the list of the marshals of the vanguard, through running a range of record labels and being a member of Bristolâ€™s Young Echo Sound.
His own skewed, drenched-in-dread interpretation of the dubwise aesthetic and his unhinged take on soundsystem culture are a big part of his understanding of music. Always seeking for a sonic that builds on tension and release, guttural and cerebral meditations on low-end pressure and a heady conveyance of his self-styled sound palette, which can draw from all angles and directions, take U-turns, sidesteps and confident crash landingsâ€¦
Ossia flirts and abuses with the tactile and analogue aspects of live performance. He tempers the analogue and physical aspects of musical interaction, tension and suspense playing an equal part to the final sum in Ossiaâ€™s live shows, forming a cohesive concoction to the final impact of each thundering release. The steam rolling aftermath of dread atmospherics and tripped out ambience. With a restrained internet-policy and a dubplate-ethos that favours tricks and surprises over complete transparency, you can rest-assured that most of his productions and treasured exclusives are kept under wraps only to be unveiled in live or DJ sets.

Via App (NYC)
Unconventional techno artist Via App has made a mark on the burgeoning Brooklyn electronic scene since arrive in the borough in 2014. Using an unexpected combination of dissonant sounds which combat the traditional ideas connected to techno dance music, Via App creates soundscapes which keep fans on the dance floor, but challenges them with music that pushes the limits in terms of how techno is suppose to sound.
Growing up in the American South, Dylan Scheer escaped the isolation of South Carolina through the electronic post punk, 90s Midwestern performative experimental/noise, trip-hop and IDM she discovered online and developed a techno psychosis she unleashes in her music. Scheer emerged as Via App in Boston in 2012 while living in one of the cityâ€™s most-legendary DIY venues before migrating to Brooklyn a couple of years later. Since moving to Brooklyn, she has entrenched herself as one of the most intriguing, interesting and divergent artists in the cityâ€™s exhilarant electronic scene.
Via Appâ€™s has several official releases, but it is her live presence which has kept the scene enthralled. Appâ€™s raw emotion and ability to provoke thought and demand attention from audiences creates evolutionary and ground-breaking live experiences which push techno beyond its limits to a new canvas where experimental music unlike any other ever heard can live.

Currently engaged as one of a small ring of â€œparty controllers” under the collective Xiao Ma, VVEISS delivers DJ sets that unpredictably traverse techno, house, trap, industrial, noise, and drone, all strung on a taut thread of brutalism. In live performance, VVEISS utilizes voice as an instrument of infinite versatility and nestles the sound into computer-generated compositions and improvisations at the intersection of tuning and timing.
