Giorgio Moroder @ Output (via @sparber)
Dance music legend and Donna Summer producer Giorgio Moroder, who recently released a new song and contributed to the new Daft Punk album, came to Williamsburg club Output last night (5/20) for his first-ever NYC DJ appearance, as part of the Red Bull Music Academy NYC residency. He took the stage just after midnight (so technically 5/21, just as the Daft Punk album was officially released) and, with DJ Chris Cox, played until about 1:45 AM.
Singer/songwriter Diane Birch was in attendance and she said it was "her and a bunch of dudes" (or MoBROders), and also that it "may have been the sickest thing [she's] ever seen." Were you there? If so, what did you think?

There's another new megaclub coming to Williamsburg:
Verboten (German for "forbidden") -- a popular dance party company that throws techno and house DJ events around the city -- is applying for a liquor license for its soon-to-open nightclub on North 11th Street that will hold more than 700 people, company representative Jen Schiffer said at a public meeting this week.Verboten, which will be located at N. 11th and Kent (which puts it right by Output) and can hold 700 people across two rooms, is also promising lessons for kids during the daytime and a full kitchen.
"It attracts a discerning crowd of music fans, Europeans, hipsters, freaks, party girls and industry types," the company's website explains of its "techno programming."
Schiffer said the new venue would include two rooms -- one that could accommodate 411 people and another that could hold 321 guests. The venue has applied to remain open until 4 a.m. on weeknights and 6 a.m. on weekends. - [DNA Info]

Run by a gaggle of nightlife veterans from Blkmarket Membership, Porch, and Deep, the democratic space (there's no door policy) has a pumping sound system, stiff tequila drinks (try the Habla Habanero, made with Espolon Reposado and mango purée; $10), and room for up to 150 bodies. Still, it's the rarefied techno, electronica, and house programming-- a lineup that includes heavies like Stimming, Pig&Dan, and Butane.TBA's schedule includes "ARTIFACT 001: Latency Recordings Showcase" tonight with Joey Anderson, Suleiman & Sidney, Taimur Agha, and Jordon; and Billy Caldwell & Justin Strauss on Friday (5/17). Anybody been yet?
"As most of you probably already know, Daft Punk's album was officially released for streaming purposes on iTunes. However, the official album in its physical (or more than likely downloadable) form won't be here until May 21 and there's hype to be built. That's why Daft Punk is gracing the cover of Dazed and Confused and posing with Giorgio Moroder in these stunning black and white photos.
Giorgio Moroder is an electronic music pioneer whom the duo worked with on their documentary/homage/epic track "Giorgio by Moroder" on Random Access Memories.
He is influential in the genre of disco as we know it today, which explains why Daft Punk would want to pay homage to him on this, their disco-iest album to date.
The covers and images were taken by Hedi Simane and will be featured in the June issue of Dazed and Confused which hits stands May 15." [MSTARS]
Possibly one of the hardest Red Bull Music Academy NYC events to get a ticket to is/was Giorgio Moroder at Cielo (a Deep Space night with resident DJ François K and Academy participants T.Williams and Benjamin Damage also on the bill). Luckily Red Bull felt bad about about that and moved the 5/20 show to the bigger Output in Williamsburg. Tickets are still listed as sold out at the moment, but we heard they'll be releasing some more soon, and "A very limited number of tickets will be available at the door.". Good luck.

Sepalcure (aka Machinedrum and Braille) released their impressive self titled debut LP back in 2011 and they're set to follow it with a new EP, Make You, on April 15 via Hotflush. From the sounds of the EP sampler, which you can listen to below, Make You does a pretty good job of picking up where the ambient textures and garage rhythms of the full length left off. In addition to the EP sampler, you can also listen to a full stream of the EP's title track below.
Sepalcure will be celebrating the new EP with a release party in Brooklyn at Output on April 25. The show is being opened by Jimmy Edgar, who collaborates with Machinedrum in JETS. Maybe we'll get some JETS material at the show too? Tickets for that show are on sale now. Show flyer below.

As mentioned, there's a weekly Thursday party called INPUT at new Williamsburg dance club Output (74 Wythe Ave by N. 12th St.) which has already had some good shows, and has another this week (3/21) with Bok Bok, Kingdom, Girl Unit, L-Vis 1990, MikeQ, Rizzla, and Kelela. They've just recently announced their April parties, and those are looking pretty good too.
On April 4, they've got DFA DJs Juan MacLean and Tim Sweeney, along with Dan Wender. Tickets for that one are on sale now.
The last announced INPUT party for April at the moment (they haven't announced a 4/25 show) is on April 18 with Ben UFO, Pearson Sound, and Pangaea. Tickets are on sale. And if you haven't already, check out Ben UFO's Fabriclive.67 mix.

As mentioned this past January, Williamsburg got a new, 452-capacity dance club, Output at 74 Wythe Ave by N. 12th St. We weren't sure exactly what types of "techno, house and other EDM styles" would be booked at the venue, but we're happy to report that they've already got some great shows coming up, as part of their weekly Thursday party, INPUT.
We already mentioned that Shlohmo's tour with D33J hits the venue on March 7, but that show is even better than we knew then, because Rustie, Jackmaster, and Oneman are on it too. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
Then on March 14, Maxxi Soundsystem will play with Compuphonic, Plastic Plates, and Let's Play House's Jacques Renault (tickets). Meanwhile, there's a Let's Play House party happening this Friday (3/1) at Le Bain with DFA Records DJ Shit Robot and Eug.
The Night Slugs crew is hitting the venue on March 21 for a great show which features Bok Bok, Kingdom, L-Vis 1990, Girl Unit, Mike Q, Rizzla, and a live set from Teengirl Fantasy collaborator Kelela. Tickets for that one are on sale now.

Shlohmo - 'Laid Out'
LA producer Shlohmo, who released the impressive Vacation EP last year, will be following that with a new EP, Laid Out, on March 5 via Friends of Friends/Wedidit. He just released the opening track, "Don't Say No," which features guest lead vocals from How to Dress Well. It sees HTDW returning to the cracked recording style of his debut LP over Shlohmo's sensual R&B beats. You can stream that and the warped hip hop of another Laid Out cut, "Later," below. That's the cover art above.
Shlohmo will be supporting the new EP with a tour that kicks off in Canada at the end of this month and makes its way to Brooklyn on March 7 at Output (74 Wythe Ave) before hitting Austin for SXSW. The Brooklyn date and a few others on the tour are with D33J.

Williamsburg mega-club Output opens tonight with DJ sets from Shaun Reeves, Nicolas Matar, VisionQuest, Crosstown Rebels. Those wondering what this may mean to the quickly-evolving neighborhood, note this verbiage from the promoters: "Output is open to anyone, but is not for everyone. Output welcomes individuals who value the communal experience of music over cameras, ropes, and bottles."
Fans of high quality indiepop should head to Cake Shop tonight to catchy the hyper-jangle of Literature and Aussie ex-pats Scott & Charlene's Wedding.

Last year King Krule released the "Octopus" single and he's just made a video for it. You can watch it below.
Williamsburg is getting a big, fancy new dance club very soon. Located at 74 Wythe (at N. 12th St.) right by Brooklyn Bowl and Wythe Hotel, Output is a 452-person-capacity club that is planning on opening in the next few weeks, with additional plans for a rooftop bar and restaurant. The club will focus on techno, house and other EDM styles. While the exact opening date has not been set, February 22 will be the first edition of Bunker to happen there, with DJ sets from Speedy J, Peter Van Hoesen, and Mike Servito.... and the fact that Bunker is doing a party there actually gives us hope that this place is not just going to end up catering to a Pacha-Jersey-Shore-like crowd. That said, Bunker will continue to host parties at Public Assembly just a few blocks away after February, for now anyway.
The new club "will be the new North American showcase room for Funktion One, featuring some next generation equipment you wont find anywhere else." I'm sure it's going to sound amazing in there.
Flyer for the Bunker party at Output is below.
