After a stellar 2018 which saw Innervisions touch down in Miami, Beirut, London, Moscow, Marrakech, Barcelona, and Paris, the prestigious label will make a rare trip across the pond for its New York debut taking over Knockdown Center on Friday, May 17 from 9pm-5am. This event is sure to be a thrilling creative voyage through music and art as an innovative imprint invades an uncanny venue.
With visionary label heads Âme (DJ) and Dixon leading the night’s proceedings with a special back-to-back DJ set, together they will bring along some of the most exciting names in underground dance music along for the ride. Rounding out this expertly curated lineup will be critically-acclaimed DJ Koze, fast-rising star Trikk and French talent, Jennifer Cardini.
The Knockdown Center is proud and honored to join the ranks of some of the biggest festival brands in the world that have hosted the highly-regarded label such as Amsterdam Dance Event, The BPM Festival, and Sónar Festival.
Founded in 2005 by visionaries Dixon (Steffen Berkhahn) and Âme (Frank Wiedemann and Kristian Beyer), Berlin-based label Innervisions has become one of the most influential voices in underground dance music over its 14 year history. Only releasing a handful of records per year, the label’s in-house talents, which include Âme, Dixon, Henrik Schwarz, and Marcus Worgull, have taken Innervisions to global tastemaking status while maintaining a strict A&R policy.
Handpicking releases from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Lee Burridge, Matthew Dekay, Recondite and more, Innervisions continues to offer refreshing and groundbreaking originals. The latest release on the imprint — January’s ‘Secret Weapons Part 11’ compilation — features work by 14 artists with divergent styles that have all enjoyed regular rotation in both Âme and Dixon’s sets allowing them to create vivid moments during both after hours and peak time performances.
