Partygoers in Brooklyn! Get ready as the sounds of Berlin and Basel invade the independently owned live music and events space The Meadows on September 16. Event connoisseurs LOKD are set to make their New York City debut with AVEM, Arutani, Alissa, Dandaram and more! Tier one tickets for the indoor and outdoor showcase are available now; grab them from The Ticket Fairy.
In a first, music collectives Samsara and Kronos are penciled in to team up with LOKD for a record label showcase! The 400-plus capacity venue will see the artist line-up unfold indoors and outdoors, commencing at midday. Producers AVEM, Dandara, HVED, and Niki Sadeki, known for spewing out melodic, indie, progressive, and deep techno, will illuminate the decks indoors. Meadow’s outdoor area is set to be marked by musicians Alissa, Arnaud Muller, and Arutani.
On the card is Swiss producer and DJ AVEM, who is slated to release his first album ‘Dream State’ on September 1, 2023. As AVEM gears up to unleash music from the upcoming release live, he says to us, “It‘s hard to describe how cathartic it feels to finally perform the album live after release, and I feel very lucky that NYC will be the second album show – right after our hometown of Basel.”
Speaking about the upcoming show in Brooklyn, AVEM expresses, “The upcoming showcase in NYC is a dream come true for our label, family, and event collective, as going on a journey together always feels much more special.” AVEM also heaped praise on NYC and let us know who he is looking forward to seeing perform at the gig, saying, “My last two times in the city were an absolute blast and I can‘t wait to top it, this time with a lovely crew from A-Z, local as well as imported! Blessed to have some amazing artists joining us and the great collectives Samsara & Kronos making it happen. I‘m especially hyped for Niki Sadeki‘s set, who I‘ve never heard in person before.”
We also got word from the head honcho of Samsara, Harsh Ved aka HVED, who chipped in on the day-long event. He stated, “I am looking forward to hearing the sounds of Berlin and Basel in Brooklyn. The stellar lineup is unlike anything we’ve seen before. All these artists are my personal favorites. I have been following these artists’ journeys for the past 5-10 years and am proud to work with them. It will be quite an experience to see Arutani and AVEM both doing live sets!”
Music producer Arnaud Muller cites acts Arutani, AVEM, and Dandara as the names that inspired him to forge a career in music. “Their sense of rhythm and melodies is a true inspiration to me, and being on the same lineup is a dream come true. I am also happy to play alongside Niki, which is another of my favorite artists. I am preparing a downtempo and melodic set that will be in line with all the other artists but that will also complement it. I can’t wait to tell a beautiful story during this magical night it will be.”
