Wata Igarashi (The Bunker New York, Midgar | Japan)

For the next edition of The Bunker, we bring our biggest lineup yet to MARKET HOTEL. You know the deal by now: we maintain a dark outlaw vibe in a comfortable and legal space. Wood dance floor, full lighting install by Kip, and a big sound rig from SubBass.
It’s always a joy to host DJ NOBU at The Bunker (he was a part of our showcases in Tokyo in 2015 and 2016, closed Berghain at The Bunker label night there in 2016, and made his US debut at The Bunker at Good Room in 2016). His ascendance from a hero in Japan to a superstar appearing on key festival and club stages worldwide feels complete at this point and we’re very excited to share that he’ll be playing one of his mind melting closing sets.
Berlin-based DR RUBINSTEIN is a name you've probably been hearing a lot as she's been traveling the globe gracing dance floors with her unique take on acid, techno and timeless rave selections. She last smashed it for us at a packed night at Good Room back in 2017, and played an amazing set of sunrise music on our radio show in Berlin last year.
WATA IGARASHI has been exploring the deeper side of techno through well-received EPs on Midgar, The Bunker NY, and DJ Nobu’s Bitta label, as well as standout tracks on compilations on Semantica and Time to Express. Igarashi pursues the outer reaches of sound in his DJ sets, developing a distinctive take on the detailed, immersive style of techno that Japan has become known for. Ever since his unbelievable all night set at The Bunker last summer, we’ve been getting constant requests to bring him back and are really glad that we could do it for this one!
Last but not least, we have our beloved, legendary resident DJ, DEREK PLASLAIKO back in town from his current home base in Berlin. Derek really helped define the sound and vibe of The Bunker going all the way back to our subTonic days, and it’s always a treat when he joins us.
