This weekend, BangOn!NYC’s annual Halloween event, Warehouse of Horrors is slated to take over Knockdown Center in Queens. Anyone who has followed The Wook of Wall Street knows that we stan BangOn!NYC and their Elements events pretty damn hard, so we’re prepping you for one of the best events this spooky season. Here are some acts you absolutely should not miss if you’re attending Warehouse of Horrors.
1. Dorfex Bos
We’ve said it once, we’ll say it ‘til we’re blue in the face: go see Dorfex Bos. He continues to put on some of the best live performances in the bass music scene, and we’re guaranteed to catch every set we possibly can. Stringing together an otherworldly mix of beauty and filth, Angelo Dorsi’s sets push the boundaries of what’s expected when it comes to bass music. If you haven’t yet, absolutely make sure you see him from 2-3am Saturday night on the Horror Stage.
2. Beat Kitty
This isn’t the first time we’ve written about Beat Kitty, and it certainly won’t be the last. Her booty-shakin’, bass-heavy, and bombastic beats are not to be overlooked. We’ve shared her work in our groundscores articles in the past, and we’re certainly excited to keep seeing her pop up on events we’re attending. The Brooklyn Bombshell puts on a killer show for fans of trap and hip-hop heavy bootlegs, and we’re guaranteeing you’ll have no choice but to get down. She’s always known to bring the heat, and we’ll certainly be front and center for her set, from 10-11pm Friday night at the Warehouse Stage.
WONGO is a tech and g-house producer from Australia who I am exceptionally excited to check out. He’s got a down-and-dirty style that brings a less refined vibe to his hip-hop heavy beats. Ranging from minimalist, atmospheric orchestrations of rhythm and bass to melodic house bangers with brilliant acapellas, he’s got a little bit of everything for any house head to shuffle to. WONGO will be on the Horror stage from 3-4am Friday night.
4. The Librarian
Andrea Graham has been cooking up sick bass beats for a few years now, and I’ve been desperately trying to catch one of her sets, but have been unlucky in my efforts. That will not be the case this weekend. Her dark and gloomy compositions will be the perfect accompaniment to the spooky vibes that Warehouse of Horrors has to offer, and her blend of halftime bass with DnB will be a nice refresher for the peak resuscitation hour of 1-2am Saturday night. She’ll be on the Horror Stage as well.
5. Ivy Lab
If you don’t know, now you know (but you probably should have already known). Ivy Lab has consistently been serving up sumptuous selections for a while now, and we’ve been fans for just as long. Their beautiful futuristic sounds waver between silky smooth and all-out banger, certified to provide the perfect experience for your earholes. They will be on the Warehouse Stage from 11-12pm on Friday night.
Aside from the music, Warehouse of Horrors has a slew of interactive exhibitions and installations for attendees to lose themselves in, from a Haunted Fun-House and Flesh Suspension to Shock Theater and Pole Dancers, Elements always has a knack for putting on some of the wildest parties and showing us the best time imaginable.
