It’s New Year’s Eve and here in NYC it’s impossible to figure out what to do. Clearly, Times Square is out, unless you are insane. But with the amount of amazing events dotted across the city we thought we would put together our top picks to make tonight memorable! Check out our choices below and have a safe and happy New Year!
If NYC duo DKDS haven’t made their way onto your radar just yet, don’t worry, but let this mix be a nice little introduction for you. Two cousins sharing a passion for House and Techno, DKDS started only in the past couple of years and the guys have seemingly just started working on originals within the past 6 months, hanging under the wing of T&B bossman Luca Venezia and his √+ project, Curses.
The guys have been announced to play Verboten‘s New Year’s Eve event at a massive warehouse location in the city, joining up with Eats Everything, Star Eyes, and a special guest to be announced closer to the event, and to give us a preview of their set, DKDS have put together the most recent installment of Verboten Transmissions, featuring over an hour of some jackin’ tunes that are putting me in a warehouse vibe for sure.
We’ll definitely be keeping an eye on these guys in 2014…
