On September 19, Verboten’s final StageONE outdoor festival event of the season sees the legendary pairing of club residents Carl Craig’s Detroit Love and Matthew Dear’s avant-garde brand Subversions for an all-day throwdown on the Williamsburg waterfront at 50 Kent Avenue, hosted by Mixmag.

Close out summer at the celebrated expanded outdoor summer series featuring world-class talent, stunning sound and visual installation, delicious food vendors, games and much more.
Detroit Love is a new concept from global techno icon Carl Craig designed to bring together and support the sounds of Detroit, taking a little of the techno brotherhood all over the world, this time presenting his live project Modular Pursuits. Meanwhile, Matthew Dear’s notorious alter-ego Audion showcases a high-class, innovative live sound, along with a hand-picked selection of globally revered techno artists including boundary-pushing Items & Things label boss Magda and Minus artist Gaiser, who injects melody and imagination into the sound of minimal with his live set, as well as Floorplan, aka Underground Resistance legend Robert Hood, and soulful master of the eclectic groove Moodymann. Check out Carl Craig’s recent Detroit Love Mixmag session here, a mix that “[combines] the warmth of house, the futurism that runs throughout anything Craig touches and the pure adrenaline rush that only the finest techno can spur.”
Verboten’s executive chef Chris McLaughlin continues to offer a deliciously crafted menu to complement a variety of beer and wine options from the bar. Don’t forget to cool off with treats from local ice cream company OddFellows and Vita Coco’s rejuvenating coconut water, and take a break from dancing to check out exquisite clothing selections from Williamsburg boutiques Ibiza Love Child and La Di Da Dee. Also returning are the hyper-surreal and otherworldly visions from Muffinhead Inc. in the form of interactive costumed performers. Sponsors for this edition of StageONE also include DanceSafe, JamCare and Mamma Chia.
Extend the party into the night for an all out Detroit affair at the official afterparty at the Verboten club which will see the extraordinary pairing of Matthew Dear playing back-to-back with second wave Detroit techno legend Stacey Pullen, plus bonus sets from Magda and Gaiser [live], brothers Lenny and Lawrence Burden of Octave One [live] joined by Ann Saunderson on PA, one of Detroit techno’s founding fathers Kevin Saunderson, pioneering DJ/producer Kenny Larkin, DJ duo Ataxia, and genre-bending DJ Erno.
