Thanks to Okayfuture for giving me the chance to cover this year’s Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival! Here’s a recap I threw together of the weekend.

The 555-BEMF | Mike Servito

NEEW YORKK - The 6th Annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival kicks off this Friday November 8! BEMF is a multi-night, multi-venue takeover on North 6th Street in the heart of Williamsburg and I can assure we will be dancin’ our asses off.

In anticipation of the festival this weekend, we’ve reached out to 5 of our favorite BEMF artists for a little Q&A.

Get ready, party people, this week we’re coming at you with The 555-BEMF >> 5 questions, 5 artists, 5 days. 

DAY 5: Mike Servito 

1. What’s your favorite party in New York?

I really hate to sound biasd, but The Bunker hits all the senses for me. Always! I know. Boring, right?

2. Is there one track or one artist that changed it all for you?

Baby Ford - Ford Trax

3. What was the most memorable set you saw in 2013?

Silent Servant. All of his sets that I witnessed in 2013. All of them! His mixing and track selection is impeccable. It doesn’t get better. He might be the biggest bad ass out there.

4. What new artists are you most excited about?

Currently, the elusive R-Zone is doing it for me, although i’m not sure they are “new” artists. I like the new kids. Vereker. Delroy Edwards. Huerco S. Love the L.I.E.S. camp. Daniel Avery is really interesting and holds my attention. So many people. It’s hard to keep up, honestly. Everyone has such strong opinions on new artists. It’s all subjective anyways. The ones pushing the envelope and/or keeping true to a sound. That’s who I am excited about.

5. What’s the strangest party you’ve ever played?

They’re all strange. I swore I was gonna get my ass kicked by an angered artist that a lot of techno/house people actually love dearly. I got caught up in a crossfire of rage. I won’t name names, but it was bad. That might be the strangest moment, personally. It was in Detroit during Movement one year. A great record was ruined in the process, but I managed to remain unharmed and go on with my set. Don’t steal gear, kids.

Don’t forget to RSVP to your favorite artists’ events on our site.

Peace, love, and parties – doNYC. 

Watch on

Cubic Zirconia- Take Me High

One of the problems with posting a music video for Cubic Zirconia is that they really are incomparable live.  I got to catch them a couple of weeks ago when they opened for SBTRKT, and last night they played at The Music Hall of Williamsburg for the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival.  To drive the point home, they have in no time become one of my favorite act to see live; their energy is almost unmatched, and their fusion of R&B and electronic music, using varied influences from house to footwork to dubstep, make them different and more dynamic than so many bands out there, all of which make me quite glad that both the band and me are based in Brooklyn.

Their full length debut album, Follow Your Heart, came out digitally earlier this fall and the LP comes out November 29th.
