We’re presenting this special party in collaboration with our friends from Exit Festival Serbia to celebrate The Bunker NY being chosen along with Fabric London, Arma17 Moscow, and Goa Rome, to curate the lineup for a night at this year’s Exit Festival on the No Sleep Novi Sad Stage. This edition of The Bunker offers a sneak peak of what we’re bringing to Exit Festival 2018–the unique sound of our residents, label artists and extended family.
Headlining the Good Room is Kangding Ray, who last appeared at The Bunker in 2014. Kangding Ray’s ability to keep the dancefloor moving while getting deep into angular psychedelic territory has long made him a favorite at The Bunker and we’re very happy to bring him back. Starting things off in the Good Room is The Bunker founder and resident DJ Bryan Kasenic and also on the early side, we have Scared Bones recording artists Föllakzoid, one of our favorite psych-rock bands all the way from Chile, presenting a special set that leans more heavily on drum machines and electronics than their usual set up. Some of you will remember them taking us deep into the zone, opening for Atom™ & Tobias and Rødhåd back in 2015 at Good Room (when Atom™ joined them on stage). That stellar performance became The Bunker Podcast 106. We’ve also invited Erika, who works with BMG to run Detroit’s Interdimensional Transmissions and organize the legendary No Way Back parties. Her heady and relentless techno sets have been steadily gaining recognition around the world and she is very busy touring and bringing that Detroit vibe to the far corners of the globe. Also returning to The Bunker is Belgrade, Serbia’s Tijana T, who last played for us as part of a huge lineup at one of our legendary 36 hour Unter x The Bunker parties in 2016. After many years as a TV host in Serbia, Tijana T has spent the last few touring the world as a DJ non-stop and we can’t wait to have her play for us again.
The Bad Room is headlined by another Serbian DJ, Lag of Mord Records. Lag brings a very punk attitude to his broad-minded, creative DJ sets. We welcome New York Trax, who are celebrating two years of existence to help support us in the Bad Room with label artists Løt.te and John Selway. Aside from his release on NY Trax last year, Løt.te has also released two very well received EPs on The Bunker New York, and a killer track on the 15 Years of The Bunker compilation. He’s appeared at our label showcase at Berghain in Berlin and the Pickle Factory in London in the past, and it’s been way to long since he’s joined us in Brooklyn! John Selway is an old friend of The Bunker who has been producing under various guises for over two decades. His most recent release as Semblance Factor on NY Trax has introduced his sound to a new generation of techno fans. Coming off the strength of his amazing 8 hour set at The Bunker LTD in February, we have The Bunker resident DJ Patrick Russell rounding out the room.
