Closer than ever with our I.T. family, we share their vision of getting lost in the sound and our crews' resident DJs, label artists, and key collaborators have deep and long-lasting connections from New York to Detroit and beyond. After co-presenting 9 editions of No Way Back in Detroit, and 8 editions in Brooklyn over the last decade, in 2016 The Bunker and Interdimensional Transmissions started a new tradition of throwing The Bunker on Memorial Day at Tangent gallery. This year, The Bunker will be the last 10 hours of 37 hours of continuous music that starts with No Way Back at Return to the Source at Tangent Gallery.
Embracing the concept of collaboration, we're featuring a series of specially curated DJ pairings for this Monday night wind down. Opening The Dance Room, we have The Bunker residents Mike Servito and Bryan Kasenic, who will play to each other’s strengths to warm up the space. Peak time techno sounds will be provided by the first ever collaboration between The Bunker’s Antenes and I.T.’s Erika. And we’ll bring things to a close with the world premier b2b set from Wata Igarashi and Patrick Russell, launching us into deep space and ending the weekend on a high note.
The front room of Tangent will be transformed into The Come Down Room for when you need a rest from The Dance Room or simply don't have the physical energy left after the crazy weekend to shake it on Monday night, we got you! The sound of The Come Down Room will be deeply psychedelic. Not quite beatless ambient music, but not really pushing the dance floor either, exploring the mind via incredibly strange music and celebrating the more downtempo and straight up demented side of The Bunker, the stuff that falls between the cracks of boring genre distinctions. There will be plenty of seating and the amazing sound system Tangent is known for on Memorial Day weekend, so sprawl out with your friends and get weird with us. The Bunker NY label artists Abby Echiverri and rrao will get things started, leading into an extended collaborative set from Carlos Souffront and Silent Servant which is sure to be unmissable.
