The 9th annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival returned to the New York City borough this month, summoning top-tier artists from the electronic music scene and other talented acts still bubbling up from from the underground. Spanning across the first two weekends of November, the festival’s many events took place in eight unique venues. Here are a few of our most unforgettable highlights for this year:
Fans didn’t waste a moment to get tickets to Roisin Murphy’s rare sold-out performance when the Irish singer announced that she would be coming to the Music Hall of Williamsburg. And wow, she did not disappoint. Her powerful vocals and countless costume changes kept fans captivated all night.
Talented deep house DJ and producer Kerri Chandler brought an exciting twist to his performance at Analog BKNY in Gowanus. A skillful violinist joined him onstage, bringing a much-needed live element into the small, intimate club. The crowd loved it.
Kidnap Kid’s newly established label, Birds That Fly, made its New York debut with a showcase at Output club in Williamsburg. Kidnap Kid was joined by Jey Kurmis and label-mate Amtrac. The trio did not disappoint, each bringing a groovy, bouncy vibe to the club on a cool Wednesday night.
BEMF teamed up with Dutch techno label Unter to bring the masterful Robert Hood to a warehouse in East Williamsburg, with opening sets by Volvox and Bryan Kasenic. Hood laid down hours of hard-hitting, melodic industrial techno that kept the party going, and his after-hours set went well into the morning.

See you next year, fellow Brooklynites.
