Hands down, the lineup I am most excited about all weekend. Baauer may be the headliner, but everyone else on this bill has earned their place. Om Unit just came off a huge show in Toronto, Sliink, a Body High mainstay, wowed me during SXSW, and Aquarian is just beginning to launch his long-incubated artist project with a big release on UNO NYC, which puts him in company with Jacques Greene, CFCF, and several other amazing bass and techno artists who are doing much to push the boundaries of EDM right now.

Sunday, September 2nd

You can only really find lineups as stacked up as this one at times like this, in a city like NYC. Quality curation – this is a surefire lineup, and being the last day of EZoo you can bet it’s going to be rammed. Treasure Fingers may be billed last, but if you’re asking me, he’s the most exciting performer on this bill (so make sure to get there early for him!)
