Why We’re Doing It on North 6th Street.
North 6th Street is the center of the New York music universe. From the countless indie artists who have broken their careers at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, to the infamous Bunker at Public Assembly, to the cutting edge djs at the underground dance cave AKA The Cove, North 6th is the present and the future home of forward thinking music.
Besides the fact that MeanRed headquarters is located on N. 6th, the abundance of nightlife and its convenience to Manhattan made it the obvious choice for BEMF. We are occupying six of the best clubs with one of the best lineups in New York music festival history. Music Hall Of Williamsburg, Public Assembly, Cameo, The Cove, Zabloski’s, and Brooklyn Bowl will be filled to the brim with the best up-and-coming, underground, and veteran electronic musicians that you won’t get elsewhere.
And that is exactly why we’re doing it on North 6th Street — this isn’t your average festival. This is integrated into the neighborhood of Williamsburg. There’s re-entry and mobility, you can go get a pack of smokes if you run out, you can grab a bite at PARKED or any one of the dozens of restaurants in the area. We’re bringing in bigger acts to clubs we all know (plus one bar that we’ve all “ended up at” late at night). Brooklyn is our city, and we’re bringing you a homegrown DIY urban music fest, built with friends on a dancefloor. - Dan Wender
As BEMF quickly approaches, the anticipation to get my mind blown away by hot shots like Matthew Dear, Fischerspooner’s and Four Tets DJ Sets, and the rarely seen floor-stompers Schlachthofbronx makes me want to strap on some Depends, just in case. But upon further inspection I must say, these “underdogs” playing the fest are really living up to the bill.
First off, Slow Roast Records’ Codes is really making buzz in the dance music scene, releasing some remixes for Major Lazer, Trigon and Dave Gee (Darkroom), and Harry Belafonte that’ll make your feet fall off. If you’ve never checked out a BEACON show this is a great opportunity to see some insane visuals paired with a unique sound that’s been described as “Brooklyn drone-electronica boy band”. Doldrums, a.k.a. Airick Woodhead is another one to look out for. A one man project creating so many sounds you might be wondering if you’ve left Music Hall and entered some sort of jungle-space dimension.
Get there early and let DECADES' 4 piece band give it to you, with their future-psychedelic-disco set. And, have you ever heard of “making it rain blood on the dance floor”? If not, you've never been to a RINSED party. Residents Dan Wender and Blacky II have been bringing monthly debauchery to Public Assembly with their party usually decked out in blow-up dolls and bloody shower curtains. This time they’re presenting the Fade To Mind showcase with Kingdom, Nguzunguzu, Girl Unit, and Total Freedom. That’s far from it though, missing the likes of Donor, Treehouse DJs, Heathered Pearls, and Mess Kid would be like missing the G train in Bed-Stuy. - A.Pop
