Only at Ultra Music Festival: Monika Kruse

Getting the Carl Cox & Friends 10 Year Anniversary started early Saturday is none other than Germany's Monika Kruse. While last year we had Nicole Moudaber's Techno shaking the rafters of the MegaStructure, this time around we are delighted to have Monika lead us through a groovy and sweltering afternoon with her mixing expertise. Citing Hip-Hop, Funk, and House as the earliest influences that got her career moving back in '91, Monika has spent over twenty years crafting a sound that fits like a glove into the Miami vibe. Take her scorchingly loud Latin-infused beats, add Florida's humidity, and you have a party that'll have you drenched and loving it. Ultra is Monika's only confirmed US festival stop this season, so see you guys Saturday for an atmosphere that will surely be unmatched!

"Psychedelic" (Original Mix) - WHYT NOYZ

WHYT NOYZ' latest trek into the shadows of Tech is more than just a bad trip. Like any psychedelic voyage, this mix is weirdness manifest, with robust drum sections ensaring you and toppling you down the wormhole seconds after you take in that first dose. Just know that once you surrender to the rhythm of this beefy beast there's no turning back.

Blank Code With Drumcell, Project 313, & More @ Sullivan Room NYC

Heading the party this Saturday for Erratic event's third Sullivan Room takeover is Detroit's own Project 313. The duo has been engaged with event promotion since the 90s, most notably hosting the "Substance" and "Scene" afterparties for DEMF since the establishment of the Blank Code platform on '07. As a label, Blank Code is still young with only 5 EPs released since last summer, building itself around what 313 detail as "a stomping, stripped­-down beat surrounded by drifting noise, perfectly matching the hard­-and-­steady style of their live sets in Detroit." Next up on the roster is a man who needs no introduction, the reason I'll be in attendance: Drumcell. With his much anticipated 12-track debut album coming out at the end of the month on CLR, this will be a long awaited performance. In a league of his own when it comes to sound production, innovation, and hardware setup, the LA jockey and sound engineer shook the entire underground stage at DEMF this year pulling me in for a hefty ride that had me hooked. Be sure to come early to catch one of Techno's most talked about talents, Luis Flores, and for those half-off drinks between 10 and 11!

Either way tomorrow will be one of New York City's best summer offerings when it comes to Techno and Tech House.
