Best Place to See Underground Techno Underground New York 2005 - BUNKER @ SUBTONIC
Friday night's party BUNKER @ SUBTONIC, which is really the basement of Tonic, is now the only reliable source for ultra-underground, weirdy-beardy experimental techno that would impress even the most hardcore Other Music clerk. Chin-scratchers have been treated to events like the Mini-Mutek Festival and artists as diverse as Safety Scissors, Monolake, and I-Sound. Sometimes, you walk into the dungeon-like space and get an earful of a needle scratching its way across a record in a rather unpleasant way; other times, bubbly beats that sound subterranean and surreal boom through. Each time, you feel like you've discovered a secret.
