Sublimate is thrilled to present a new party in Brooklyn, dedicated to bringing you quality underground house and techno. Our primary focus is on the artistic value of the music itself and to provide a safe space to foster a community of respectful partiers. Lastly, we don’t think a night out dancing should cost you an arm and a leg. This final point is paramount, since the underground dance scene should be accessible to all – especially newcomers.
This time we are bringing you a very special guest all the way from Europe. Originally hailing from Chicago, Amir Alexander is a true musician with an impressive discography. He has faithfully sublimated the classic sounds of Detroit, Chicago, and New York into timeless, divine, and gritty underground house. We should also mention we are talking about a 20-year veteran of vinyl DJ’ing, with the technical chops to lift our feet off the dance floor and leave our jaws planted firmly on it. In his tech rider, Amir requested not two, but three turntables. We honestly have no idea what he is up to, but we’re guessing you don’t want to miss it.
We are also excited to bring back our very own duo I am vs Dahlia. If you made it until the closing set of our first party, where they kept us jamming until 8am, you will remember the undeniable chemistry that they share and that we all shared as the sun rose on that fateful November day. We can’t be more thrilled by the potential of this duo and we are honored to have them be part of the sublimate family.
Who better to round out the bill than our esteemed residents Faso and Sagotsky? These two have both been making waves (both figuratively and literally) in the New York underground scene. Our events would not be the same without their smiles, charm, and infectious appreciation for quality music.
