The final installments of Verboten’s 2013 StageONE series will each deliver a monumental roster of underground heavyweights to warm up the fall season with day-into-night extravaganzas. Transformed from what was originally the Schaefer Brewery, StageONE will debut their new location at Cine Magic Riverfront Studios. Situated on the Williamsburg, Brooklyn waterfront, this premiere dance event will feature both indoor & outdoor rooms with 10 hours of nonstop music, top-notch production, food vendors and breathtaking skyline views of Manhattan.
Leading the line-up for the FIXED showcase on Saturday, September 28, is electronic purveyor Four Tet [DJ set], who recently announced his seventh studio album, entitled ‘Beautiful Rewind’ with new single “Parallel Jalebi” available here. Next up, is the British techno sorcerer, James Holden, who received wide acclaim with his intoxicating single, “The Illuminations” and continues to enchant the highly evolved dance music enthusiast. Following is Berlin-based producer George Fitzgerald, freshly signed to Domino Records’ sister label Double Six, bringing his experimental records that fuse both house and garage. Finally, JDH + Dave P, the cohorts behind FIXED, will grace the decks to show off their defined musical preferences. The duo has been responsible for bringing in some of the most credible artists and giving them a proper venue in which to play throughout New York City.

The StageONE season will close out on Saturday, October 12 with the legend Solomun,who was crowned Mixmag’s ‘DJ of the Year’ in 2012. Supporting acts include deep house mainstay, David August, and Metro Area [live] who offers a soulful experimentation of the early club classics, mixing live and electronic instruments. Lastly, Walker & Royce who are considered staples in Brooklyn’s burgeoning music scene with releases on Nurvous Recordings and Crosstown Rebels, will join the world-class programming.
Voted “Best New York City Promoter” by PaperMag, Verboten’s commitment to party excellence continues with a custom designed D&B Audio sound system, in addition to their biggest installation of lights and video to date, with a massive projection screen by Waking Dream. The events will also feature an assortment of food vendors including Meat Houseand Brooklyn Wok Shop. Those who care to upgrade their disco wear can stop by Ibiza Love Child, who continues to push the limit of what a pop-up store can be by selling unique fashion from all around the globe, and making it available at a party near you.
The StageONE event series produced in association with Highline Ballroom and Mad Dog Presents LLC, is sponsored by Belvedere, Moet, Jameson, Avión Tequila, Heineken, Sixpoint, Red Bull, and Bedford Slim’s Vapourette.
