NYC Nightlife Veteran Eddie Dean Secures Winning Bid For Verboten

Brooklyn, July 19, 2016 – Eddie Dean entered in a winning bid of $1.2 million for the purchase of the lease for the premises located at 54 North 11th Street, Brooklyn, NY in U.S. Bankruptcy Court yesterday.

The venue is expected to open in the fall under a new name and vision dedicated to the creative ethos of Brooklyn and serve as an outpost for the global dance music scene. The new space will operate under the direction of Eddie Dean and Director Andrew Inomata, who previously worked with Dean at Pacha NYC and events company RPM Presents, and is anticapted to include a carefully curated team of industry experts.

Their collective long-term plan for the venue is to become a creative hub for musicians and artists and tap into the maker-culture of DIY Brooklyn with arts, music, food, and community life. It is anticipated that the venue will continue to host live music concerts and DJ shows, booking globally renowned talent, as well as seek to be an incubator for up and coming talent for all genres of music.

“I started my nightlife career in Brooklyn so it’s only fitting that I return here now,” said Dean. “We are excited to take over the North 11th space in this prime location and fully put our nightlife expertise into action.”

Director Andrew Inomata shared his vision for the new space and said, “We will endeavor to celebrate the spirit of dance music that was born at the crossroads of creativity.”

Eddie Dean returns to his Brooklyn roots with this new venture. He first launched his nightlife career in 1990 with a club called Faces in Bay Ridge and two other Brooklyn hot spots, Ruby’s and Rock ’n Jocks over subsequent years.  After operating nightclub Discotheque / Hush in New York City from 1998-2005, Dean opened the first North American outpost of world renowned clubbing brand Pacha in New York in 2005. The storied club closed in January 2016 after a successful 10 year run. Dean also founded RPM Presents with the late promotional director Rob Fernandez, the dance music marketing and management group continues to operate and has produced over 500 events, including Pier of Fear, Big Week New York, BKWRHS, HYTE Festival, and brought mega-festival Electric Daisy Carnival to New York.

Newest Face of U.S. Techno JUHEUN Releases ‘Acceleration’ EP On Octopus Recordings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Juheun
A native to the deserts of the southwestern United States, Korean-American techno DJ/producer Juheun is a forward-thinking artist who constantly works to find the ideal balance between analog and digital sounds, leading to magnetic performances and darkly energetic productions. Making his start in 2009, he found inspiration in underground music amongst the unexposed electronic scene in Arizona at the time. Coming up strong in the American techno scene, Juheun is a fresh face on the prestigious modern techno label Octopus Recordings with his latest EP ‘Acceleration’ out now.
Juheun’s ‘Acceleration’ is inspired by his interest in space travel and technology. It’s composed of four well-rounded tracks, opening with an eponymous title track that emotes a truly hypnotic experience, embracing a percussive backbone and unique futuristic sound effects to carry listeners through. The second track veers from the original composition of “Acceleration” with a remix featuring multifaceted German producer, Wigbert. Known to combine tech-house and techno, the studio scientist incorporates booming bass that drives the energy of the track keeping an undertone of its original percussion. The EP’s third offering is fittingly titled “Pulsar,” with its fast-paced and multi-layered beats displaying Juheun’s intricate attention to detail. Cranked up drums and melodic blasts are sure to keep crowds moving late into the night. The EP is rounded out with the grippingly dark “Gamma,” a tune that begins with a heavy bassline that matures into an eerie repetition of vocals and effects that are both minimalistic yet unexplainably intriguing. Tracks on ‘Acceleration’ have already garnered support from the likes of John Digweed, Nicole Moudaber, Pig&Dan and more.
Juheun recently rocked the Octopus Recordings Movement afterparty in Detroit playing a set alongside label boss, Sian. He will be coming into the Octopus fold and touring with the rest of the roster all throughout the next year. We can expect another dark sounding EP on the horizon from Juheun incorporating an even heavier sound as well his constant driving energy that doesn’t disappoint, leaving his audience always craving more.
Juheun’s ‘Acceleration’ EP is out now on Octopus Recordings. Purchase on iTunes or Beatport.

BARBUTO’s ‘Vantablack’ EP Out Now On Octopus Recordings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BARBUTO’s ‘Vantablack’ EP
Out Now On Octopus Recordings
The Dark Techno Master’s Release Climbs Beatport’s Overall Chart
Barbuto
BARBUTO, the master of dark inner city techno, has released his first EP for 2016, ‘Vantablack’ featuring a remix by Enrico Sangiuliano on Sian’s prestigious Octopus Recordings label available now via Beatport and iTunes. The Australian native and current Texan has continuously shown his commitment to the scene, making music for eight years in his handcrafted studio built out of a 36-foot trailer. Barbuto has had a longstanding residency with the renowned Austin, Texas nightclub Kingdom, and in recent years has opened for many techno heavyweights such as Sian, Nicole Moudaber and Adam Beyer, while playing at renowned global events like The BPM Festival and WMC. His addition to one of the top five selling techno labels Octopus Recordings in 2014, which also represents highly regarded techno producers Pleasurekraft and Jay Lumen, is a testament to his signature high-quality productions.
The three tracks in the new release showcase melodic elements while staying true to the dark yet fun nature of BARBUTO’s previous work. The opening track “Vantablack,” inspired by the blackest material ever to exist, features percussive backing against a grunting bassline. Otherworldly effects add to the overall style giving it an extraterrestrial feel fitting the title of the track. Veering from the original, studio whizz Enrico Sangiuliano remixes “Vantablack” on the EP’s second track. Sangiuliano intertwines his own sound by transforming the wobbly bass into signature multi-layered beats while maintaining Barbuto’s original deep vocals and effects. The third and final track on the EP, “Armadillo,” opens with a hypnotic bassline during the first few minutes and at the same time alternates between sequences resulting in a playful tone that continues to the very end.
In short time, BARBUTO’s ‘Vantablack’ EP reached #4 on the chart of all new releases on Beatport. Steadily moving forward and up, you can find BARBUTO playing alongside Matador and Louisahhh! at Kingdom in the next few weeks. Stay tuned for more cheeky explosive techno from this Octopus newcomer.
Purchase ‘Vantablack’ on iTunes and Beatport.
