Neo Update, Clarifications
Though the rumors that circulated when the new manager took over have largely (and thankfully) died down, the fact is that all of the nights at Neo are currently under review. If any of the nights aren’t drawing the numbers they should, they might be in jeopardy — so for the next couple of months it’s crucial for people to come out and support the nights they like if they don’t want to see a change.
With Rob/Razer-X stepping down as the resident Friday night DJ, Fridays at Neo are going to be in flux for a bit. Both Nexus 6 (3rd Fridays) and Pandemic (1st Fridays) will be ongoing. The new manager is looking to experiment with some other events and DJs on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Fridays, however, before he settles into a new routine. You’ll see some DJs from Kinetic filling in on Fridays where we can, and this is where Singularity fits in. Because Nexus 6 was ongoing but Singularity dates will be in flux, we decided it best to label them differently, at least for now.
Nexus 6 has always been our venue for introducing modern industrial and rhythmic noise to a wider audience at Neo. While we noize up the place at our Kinetic nights, focusing on harsher powernoise, glitch, IDM, and similar harsh but dancey electronics, Nexus 6 is more of a middle ground between that and the music you hear at Neo’s other industrial nights. Nexus 6 is by no means pure noize — we play to the crowd, we listen to the request list, and we spin some classics, all while injecting fresh new stuff and exposing Neo regulars to a selection of the great new tracks out there. If you want to be introduced to new artists and new club hits, you’ll enjoy N6.
Singularity will in the same vein as N6. You’ll get your dosages of EBM and dark electronics along with some newer techno-industrial and rhythmic noise. If you like Razer-X’s nights or Nexus 6, you won’t be disappointed. And if you like stuff that’s a bit more ethereal and melodic, but still dancey, come on the early side.
So if you want to see more in the vein of Singularity and Nexus 6 on a consistent basis for Fridays, come out and support the nights! Let’s show ’em what we got!
