Performing publicly as Function, Dave Sumner is now approaching two decades as a hallowed force in New York City’s electronic music culture. A member of the Sandwell District collective that was as responsible as any other group in re-asserting the artistic depth of dark techno in the mid-00’s, Sumner recently relaunched his own Infrastructure New York label after more than fifteen years of hibernation while continuing to hold a residency at the famed Berghain club in Berlin. In the Panther Room, Sumner performs with Vatican Shadow in anticipation of their collaborative ambient record Games Have Rules, forthcoming on Hospital Productions. The Mancunion Modern Love crew has a busy night next door at Output, with Andy Stott performing live under his own name and with Miles as Millie + Andrea, while Miles and Sean Canty both play solo DJ sets in addition to a live set of their storming Demdike Stare project.
