About

This September 12-14 comes the first edition of Sustain-Release, an adventurous new music festival in upstate New York featuring shared cabins or camping for all participants, heated pools, a lake, bonfire, and forward-thinking music across two stages...

The lineup features elite members of the dance music avant-garde and an arsenal of pioneering local talent. Headliners include Sandwell District's gender-tweaked techno shaman RROSE, whose propulsive live performances crackle like an electrical storm off dark waters. There will be an extended DJ set from psychedelic and sensual house dancer-turned-producer JOEY ANDERSON, recently lauded for his immaculately bent album After Forever on Dekmantel. Berlin-based, California-raised XOSAR, a favorite of L.I.E.S, Crème and Rush Hour, will play one of her sparkling hardware sets full of mysterious, aqueous melodies. Ascending Detroit producer MGUN comes fresh off releases for Kyle Hall’s Wild Oats, London’s Trilogy Tapes imprints and performances with Underground Resistance. A live journey from RVNG's BLONDES promises to be full of peaks & valleys with the woozy dynamic of unyielding euphoria, and MORGAN LOUIS reveals why his unhinged techno sets inspired the renegade White Material crew. The festival will also feature a pool party led by charismatic Underground Quality label boss JUS-ED, who has played a key role in the tri-state area’s genuine deep house movement over the last decade, as well as slurred house auteur HUERCO S. and his crate-digging label boss Mondo at FUTURE TIMES.

Live hardware performances include ITAL, whose upcoming album on Planet Mu promises to take us further down the rabbit hole of vertigo-inducing dance excursions, DC's sun-dappled duo PROTECT-U, who released their debut album Free USA this past May, and feral L.I.E.S. affiliate PERSON OF INTEREST. Also joining live is DUST, the acid-drenched art collective that includes Bossa Nova Civic Club's founder John Barclay, and Opal Tapes star PATRICIA.

Sustain-Release welcomes a 6-hour THE BUNKER NEW YORK SHOWCASE featuring four of their key artists and residents. The beloved party series has shaped the NY landscape by presenting a stunning array of celebrated techno & house greats from around the world, and now after a decade they've launched a label. Founder BRYAN KASENIC will DJ alongside MIKE SERVITO, famous for his undeniably jacking sunrise sets. Haunting techno producer CLAY WILSON and recently-signed kosmische experimentalists FORMA perform live.
