It has been made official, New York City will no longer be a dry desert for electronic music and to be honest, lately it has been a jungle. Several people have really watered up the NYC nightscape bringing in top talent and continually fostering local talent. Special thanks to minimoo, Blk Marketmembership, Bunker, Biatch Corp, LESS, Bar 13 and reSolute you have all participated in reviving NY. Last night was a very special evening for NYC electronic music, it was the official announcement of Minitek Festival, a 3 day event to take place on September 12th, 13th and 14th. For this special evening, minimoo united some of the leading artists of the NYC scene and it despite not having Matthew Dear, Paco Osuna or other more internationally renown name, I am not alone in saying that it was by far one of the best minimoos ever! Naudio, Alka Rex, Taimur, Memek and Elon all took turns destroying the dancefloor to pieces. Memek played Minimaril’s Too Young to be Famous and it was huge! Check out the video (we have more videos on airdroptv):
As for the festival, just enough information has been given to keep our mouths watering and dancing for more. A few of the headliners are Richie Hawtin, Magda, Paco Osuna, Seph (live), Guy Gerber (live), Marco Carolla, Camea, Pan Pot, and more! for all announced headliners watch the video! The venue is not yet announced, but will be treated like an official festival, who knows beatport may even have a stage!
