Disorient presents: GLAMTECH 2010

Disorient presents....



François K (Deep Space/Wave Music)
Reality Engine (live AV show)
Narcotic Rhythms (Reda+The Bass, Disorient)


Journeyman (Journeys By DJ)
Friar Tuck (Disorient)
Douggie Style
DJ Master Flynn (Thrills and Skills)

plus installation by Wetcircuit, video by Guillaume Clave, performances, lights, pierogi, and $5 drinks all night long.



Glamtech (GT): $20 presale, $25 door Glamtech and Techglam (GT+TG): $30 presale, $40 door

ABOUT GLAMTECH: GlamTech IV runs from 10pm to 5am on Saturday, March 20 - the night of the Spring Equinox.

TechGlam, the official afterparty of Glamtech, runs from 5am to noon the next day. At least!!! (DX, our truly epic New Year's Eve afterparty, lasted over 2 1/2 days before all our guests made it home.)

GlamTech IV will inhabit a magical, glowing, shiny, blinking realm constructed with lights, mirrors, smoke, and muscle out of the insides of Warsaw at The Polish National Home in Williamsburg (261 Driggs Ave, Brooklyn NY 11222). $5 drinks all night (well, until last call) and great Polish food, too. TechGlam, the afterparty hosted by Disorient, will unwind in our familiar clubhouse at Brooklyn Urban Sanctuary in Prospect Heights.

In the stunning big room at Warsaw, Disorient's newest DJ and 2010 playa virgin, François K (Deep Space/Body & Soul/Wave Music), plays sexy organic house with dub flavors. Plus a live video/audio performance by Reality Engine, and support from Narcotic Rhythms (Reda + The Bass from Disorient) and Tim Fielding (Journeys by DJ). In the cantina, funky stuff all night from Douggie Style, Disorient's Friar Tuck, and DJ Flynn (NY Jedi). Also expect a flurry of breathtaking performances and your friendly neighborhood Pornj Patrol -- Disorient's team hosting the party and making sure everyone stays safe and happy. And, of course -- YOU!

Why: Because we love to create magical events for our community: safe spaces for exploration, discovery, creativity, and dance. We're also raising money to spend on art, sound, lights, and power for the playa, so we can surprise and delight the denizens of Black Rock City, and we'd love your help to do it!

GlamTech is a party. GlamTech is Disorient's style. GlamTech is a statement. GlamTech is a state of mind. GlamTech is mirror balls and strobe lights chopped up and remixed in a big poof of playa dust: techno-disco, burner style. Blinky, reflective, silver, lasers: think 80s club dancers facing off against 70s glam rockers at Thunderdome. Big 3D projections and video on dark screens, sexy beats. TICKETS:



GlamTech only (GT) - $20 limited presale, $25 door

GlamTech + TechGlam (GT+TG) - $30 limited presale, $40 door

Disorient has very few rules, but two require declaration and elaboration:

1. Respect personal boundaries. 2. Take responsibility for your own experience.

The interplay of these two rules forms a social contract that makes our events safe places to explore your own boundaries while encouraging respect for each other. Talk to those around you about anything that makes you uncomfortable.

By attending our events, you agree to follow these rules. Violating these community values could result in your removal from our events.

Disorient is coming to the inaugural PEX Summer Festival! Look for the Disorient LED sign, and we'll see you in the Puddle. Groove to the chill sounds emanating from the legendary Disorient sound system. The infamous Orange Slut is coming to provide her own unique kind of spandex shade. Available services include massages, guided meditation, tarot readings, and tribal bellydance lessons. We're proud to present the world premiere of Taurus, Anakin Koenig Airways's interactive inflatable sculpture in the form of a giant white donut. Climb into it! Play with it! (You've seen AKAirway installations at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennale, NASA, Burning Man, Figment, NYC Decompression, and Disorient's own events like GlamTech and Compressor.)

Disorient presents: CLOUD CITY + GROUND CONTROL: NYC Decom 2008

This year Disorient deviates from the norm to fly off course. We seek to expand our horizons, remove borders, and push boundaries. This year, you will be encouraged to let go…of that which holds you back…and keeps you from getting yourself off the ground.

At Decom 2008 we will provide two worlds; of uncertainty and control – Cloud City and Ground Control.

Cloud City: Disorient Inside
Clouded with uncertainty you risk being yourself, different and brave. Our Dome returns as a soothing den of lull exploration providing coverage for those looking to vanish from analysis. In the illumination of the Dome, we'll shock your senses with a glowing chill space, provide awe-inspiring light sculptures, reflect on our travels through photography, project interpretations of reality, and provide aerial performances over blissful clouds.

Ground Control: Disorient Outside
Noun 1. ground control - a communication system for sending continuous radio messages to an airplane pilot who is making a ground-controlled approach to landing
communication system - a system for communicating
Ground Control will pull you in and let you go, but the controls are ultimately up to you. What draws you in…out? Let go and enjoy the sounds of deep bass, psyche trance, techno and down-tempo grooves.

GLAMTECH is the style of Disorient.
GLAMTECH is pink and orange and goes blink in the night.

A transplant from San Francisco, Sub Swara's Resident DJ & turntablist, Sunder started his dance music career over 12 years ago at underground events in Chicago battling and flexing his dance skills. He quickly transitioned to DJ'ing and based off his Chicago funky-house roots now melds turntablist scratching with underground-breaks and house. His unique style has enabled him to play at events featuring Q-bert, Bassnectar, D:fuse, Deekline and Wizard, Karsh Kale, & DJ Radar; and has led him to residencies with multiple crews in Chicago, SF, and NYC. With his turntablist and DJ work in Sub Swara, Sunder has established his skill for creating a high energy vibe custom built to get a party bumpin'.

Friar Tuck
Since I started DJ'ing underground electronic music in 1995, I've spun at a lot of amazing raves, night clubs, house parties, backyard barbeques, outdoor festivals, and sweaty warehouse parties! I thrive on the underground scene, full of people who live for the music and love each other for being who they are. And I plan to keep on rockin' the beats until the day I die =)

BeenJammin has been Djing in the NY scene for the past 5 years. He's DJ'd ay many a loft, bar, club, Burning Man Party and Burning Man itself. Been likes to rock a dance floor with the sweet 4 to the Floor sounds of House music.

DJ Balls
Balls has been spinning Psytrance since the beginning of the genre. He currently plays New-Rave and Goa Trance with a touch of Euro, 4/4 Swing 8 groove locked at 135 BPM.

Zev/Wolf (Wolf+Lamb)
After meeting Gadi (lamb) at a party in Williamsburg in 2001, the two became friends and Gadi introduced Zev to minimal techno. As co-conspirators, they began plotting what would one day become Wolf + Lamb. Since finding his musical home, Zev has amassed a collection and musical repertoire that spans the gamut of minimal dance music. From his background in design and web, Zev still produces all the media for Wolf + Lamb, and oversees the technology. His first original co-productions were released on Wolf + Lamb Music in 2006, with more to come.

Sub Swara
Sub Swara is a live electronic crew that represents the best in lo-frequency hi-vibration culture. The Sub Swara Live Set is a balance of practiced musical refinement and on-the-fly improvisation. Weaving percussive phrases in a dynamic call and response style, Dhruva's digitally-effected tabla technique interacts with Sunder's turntablist hi-jinx as Haj lays down a solid foundation of propulsive beats and massive bass. The addition of rising MC star Juakali completes the picture, delivering a potent vocal presence with crucial ragga artistry. From dubstep, dancehall, and jungle, to breakbeat, midtempo, and glitch hop, all mixed with a global sensibility, the Sub Swara sound engages and unites across cultural and musical boundaries. <videoflash type="youtube">dyKlvwlG2iI|480|360</videoflash>
