TONIGHT! The Bunker with Mike Dehnert, Delta Funktionen, Morphosis, Jan Krueger Since 2007, Berlin native Mike Dehnert has co-run raw techno label Fachwerk, which is deeply respected by in-the-know, serious techno fans the world over. Tonight Dehnert brings his grubby, dub infused and textured live set to The Bunker for his North American debut performance. Also on the bill is Delta Funktionen, a young guy and a new artist, will be both opening and closing the night. Morphosis aka Ra.H has been crafting away in the nether-regions of the techno underworld since the 90s. His productions join the dots between raw, elementary electronica and jazz and Morphosis continues to do what he does best: make electronic music with depth and intrigue. This is his debut North American appearance. Jan Krueger has been involved in the German techno scene since the mid-90’s. He has made quite a name for himself in Berlin, appearing regularly at Watergate, Panorama Bar, and Club Der Visionäre. His rise to fame in North America happened incredibly quickly when he appeared as a special guest at both Seth Troxler’s and Daniel Bell’s DEMF afterparties in 2008 and stole the weekend. He has since established himself in Brooklyn with seven successful appearances at The Bunker, and is now one of our resident DJs. This will be Jan’s only set in New York in 2011, so catch him while you can.
