VENUE: BIG SKY WORKS, BROOKLYN - 29 WYTHE AVENUE
Traversable Wormhole (CLR)
Adam X is an icon of New York dance music. As organizer of the legendary Storm Raves and owner of Sonic Groove Records, Adam is responsible for the very first all-techno parties on the East Coast, bubbling out of dank warehouses in the early 1990's. His sets are legendary sonic assaults, techno pushed to the edge of the earth and willfully throwing itself off the precipice.
His most popular project to date, Traversable Wormhole is an alias that resulted from moving to Berlin and being inspired by the ominous techno that batters the concrete walls inside the notorious den of techno hedonism, Berghain. Releasing a series of anonymous, untitled white labels, Traversable Wormhole took the techno world by storm with the projects acidic textures, harrowing propulsion, and sweaty minimalism. Traversable Wormhole is the sound of malicious extraterrestrials brainwashing the curious humans who happen to stumble upon their spaceships.
In his first live performance as Traversable Wormhole in New York in over a year, prepare for a journey through alternate galaxies as Adam unleashes a very special set of psychedelic, sci-fi techno.

Material Object (Droid, Perc Trax) - http://soundcloud.com/materialobject
Dissolve is extremely proud to present the New York debut of Material + Object, an Australian producer and DJ whose hypnotic techno catapults you into the troposphere. With releases on Perc Trax and Droid, Material Object is a master of angular progression. His side project with Dustin Zahn, MODZ, is an equally driving force in the techno world, with the most recent release their Mid Life Vices EP. His Soundcloud is a treasure of supple grooves and hissing experimentation, and his set is sure to drag you deep down the rabbit hole.
Gobby (UNO) - http://soundcloud.com/gobby-2
A rising star on local label UNO, Gobby has made a name for himself with analog experimentation centered around the bristling, raw techno found on his New Hat EP, which SPIN writer Philip Sherburne described as "unstable, lo-fi rhythmic contraptions like the work of someone who's come to techno via a box of old rave cassettes left to warp in a sun-baked warehouse." He most recently released full-length Above Ground for free via UNO NYC on October 29th, garnering early praise from Resident Advisor. Gobby will be playing a DJ set at Dissolve, with influences coming from prickly early Plastikman and the lugubrious drones of Marcel Dettman.
Gio//Parches//Machine is an experimental collaboration between two prolific sound artists and engineers, hailing from Colorado and Mexico City, respectively. The duo utilizes custom algorithms and images to explore the boundaries between ambient tranquility and flashbulbs of graffitied noise, blurring the lines between humans and machines.
