There's never a lack of good electronic shows coming up in NYC. Here's a few highlights...
To start, here's some at new-ish Williamsburg dance club Verboten. Hip hop producer Nosaj Thing teams up with Dutch dubstepper Martyn, NY's multi-genre Sebastian Tamayo, and San Francisco house producer Matrixxman for a show at Verboten tonight (6/6). Tickets are available. Martyn is releasing a new album, The Air Between Words, on his new label home of Ninja Tune (he was previously on Brainfeeder) on June 16. The album features his Four Tet collaboration and a collab with former Hype Williams singer (Inga) Copeland, "Love of Pleasure," which you can stream below. That album was prefaced with the Forgiveness EP which came out this week, and Martyn also released a Live at BBC video this week which you can watch below. Martyn and Matrixxman join forces in NYC again this summer for Warm Up.
Pop-house revivalist Moon Boots returns to Verboten on June 12 with his French Express labelmate Perseus and Plastic Plates. He just dropped another typically great single, "Whatever You Need," which you can stream below. Tickets for the show are on sale.
UK house producer/remixer Maya Jane Coles, who recently remixed Booka Shade's "Love Drug" (ft. ex-Azari & III member Fritz Helder), plays with George Fitzgerald and Alex Arnout at Verboten on June 20 (tickets). George also plays the same Warm Up as Martyn and Matrixxman.
DFA's The Juan Maclean hits Verboten on June 26. No other acts billed at the moment, but tickets are on sale.
Moving on to another Williamsburg dance club, Output, where UK hip hop/house producer Star Slinger plays on June 19. You can grab tix.
FIXED also have a couple parties at Output coming up, including one Sunday (6/8) on the venue's roof with a DJ set from NYC duo Blondes (tickets), and another one with veteran DJ/M83 collaborator Ewan Pearson on June 12 (tickets).
London house producer Medlar, who broke through in 2011 with his "Terrell" single, makes his US debut at another FIXED party at Cameo on July 18. Tickets for that one are on sale. Watch the video for "Terrell" below.
In other news, the Night Slugs label celebrates its 6th birthday on June 27 at 88 Palace with many of the usual suspects, Bok Bok, L-Vis 1990, Girl Unit, Mike Dunn and RP Boo (who has an Adult Swim single coming soon). Tickets for that one are on sale now.
Another good show happens at that venue the next night (6/28) with Pearson Sound, Vissacoor, Teengirl Fantasy, Rrose, Sinjin Hawke and Aquarian (tickets).
Speaking of electronic label anniversaries, UNO throws their UNOversary this year on June 14 at Cameo, which doubles as a Northside showcase. CFCF, Aquarian, Gobby, Kuhrye-oo and Feral are all on the bill. Tickets are on sale and you can also try getting in with your Northside badge.
Veteran Philly DJ King Britt is releasing his first full length as his Fhloston Paradigm alias, The Phoenix, on June 9 via Hyperdub (stream some very promising clips). He'll be in NYC to celebrate that release on July 7 at Cielo where he'll play a special DJ set and a live sci-fi set. Free admission and complimentary vodka cocktails before 11 PM with eflyer, $12 with eflyer after 11 PM, and $20 without eflyer.
And don't forget tonight you can also catch James Blake DJing Output, which is sold out but a few tickets will be available at the door.
Of course those are just a few of the upcoming electronic shows in NYC. What did we miss? All mentioned streams and videos below...
Autre Ne Veut in Brooklyn in 2011 (more by Erez Avissar)
After taking about a month off the road, Majical Cloudz will head out on another North American run with Autre Ne Veut, who they played with in Brooklyn this past December. That tour kicks off in late February in Philly and ends in Austin for SXSW. It hits NYC along the way on February 27 at Santos Party House. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Autre Ne Veut will release his much anticipated new album, Anxiety, on February 26 (instead of the initial release date, February 12) via Software. The video for that album's single, "Counting," and a list of all dates are below...
Zomby will be in NYC for one last-minute show during CMJ, which happens at new-ish Greenpoint venue Autumn Bowl (67 West St.) on Thursday (10/18) with Mykki Blanco, Arca, Gobby, Kuhrye-oo, Aquarian, Anthony Naples, and Eddie Mars. The party runs from 8 PM to 4 AM. It's free before 10:30 and $5 after with RSVP.
Autumn Bowl is also where the Four Tet, Jamie xx, and Floating Points show (10/26) is happening next week. A cavernous space that was formerly the home to a rope factory (built in 1890!), it has recently begun to be used for shows. Other upcoming shows include Kyp Malone (of TV on the Radio) on Saturday (10/20) with Monogold, Kelli Rudick, Bird Courage, and David Watson/Fair Use. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

CFCF at MoMA PS1 in 2010 more by Andrew St. Clair)
NYC record label UNO is celebrating their one-year anniversary (or UNOVERSARY) in Brooklyn at 285 Kent on Saturday (4/21) with CFCF's Night Bus, Arca, Shayne from Hood by Air KUHRYE-OO (live), SFV Acid (live), Fur, Gobby (live), Physical Therapy, and special guests. RSVP is open.
Montreal producer CFCF is billed as CFCF's Night Bus, so we can only assume he'll be delivering material off of his Night Bus mixes. Night Bus is a genre, or as Gorilla vs Bear puts it, "a feeling." His mixes bring together artists like ASAP Rocky and Oneohtrix Point Never, or Elite Gymnastics and Notorious B.I.G. Download Do U Like NIght Bus? at The FADER and stream Night Bus Mix II below. Also check out a remix of CFCF by Physical Therapy, who is also on the lineup.
One last artist I'd like to highlight from the lineup is Mykki Blanco. She's a cross-dresser who writes poetry and also sings/raps. Check out some videos of her reading poetry (via FADER) and song streams below, one of which was produced by Arca.
