No Way Back @ The Bunker / BEMF
Press release by BMG, slightly edited by Bryan:
No Way Back is not a festival, it is not an event - it is a party. What began in an abandoned Detroit building with a leaky roof moved on to other legendary spaces in Detroit: the Bohemian National Home and 1515 Broadway. Aside from partnering with IT on these parties in Detroit, this will be the 4th time The Bunker has brought No Way Back to Brooklyn. This time we are partnering with BEMF to present the party in the very appropriate 285 Kent space for the first time. We are flying in Amber from IT in Detroit to visually transform the space, and of course Niksound will be in the house.
If you don't understand the touchstones of this party, it might be impossible to explain. It is a comment on a continuum. For many of us it began the 90s, searching through fliers at Record Time, calling info lines and buying your ticket at Zoots only to get lost trying to find that elusive warehouse. What was inside? Something amazing... This is our generation returning to the source, feeling a freedom and a heat within the music that resulted in speakerfreaking.
Every generation experiences this, whether it was at The Sanctuary, Better Days, The Loft, The Paradise Garage, The Warehouse, The Shrine, Cosmic, Luomos, The Muzic Box, The Hacienda, Medusa's, The Music Institute, or Berghain. You might not even know that you have soul until you experience being totally lost in the sound and realizing there is no way back, at all.
Every DJ chosen to play at No Way Back is a master of their medium, so deep in it that they all serve as constant inspirations. This is a celebration of the lost art of the late night Midwestern DJ. This is what makes the collaboration between Interdimensional Transmissions and the The Bunker so effortless, as they both are champions of this, with The Bunker residents like Mike Servito and Bryan Kasenic being long time IT collaborators.
