Celebrating 25 years as one of electronic music’s most recognized and respected curational forces, Time Warp today has announced the lineup for its return to New York City, November 22-23. Five years after its last appearance in America, the brand welcomes some of the biggest names in house and techno to the industrial haunts of the New York Expo Center in The Bronx for two days of total audio and visual immersion.
Time Warp has built itself around a central notion of family, it’s a refrain that is repeated again and again both within the community of artists that have grown central to the event, and the tens of thousands of fans who make the pilgrimage to Mannheim every year.
The New York show will see new and established members of the Time Warp family cross the Atlantic. The enigmatic Ricardo Villalobos, will make his first US showing since Time Warp’s stateside debut five years ago. The Chilean born minimal star has avoided the North American scene throughout the entirety of his career, only touching down to deliver his infamously esoteric sets to eagerly awaiting fans on a handful of occasions. Ricardo is joined by his Time Warp brothers Sven Väth and Richie Hawtin who have been apart of the festival since its 1995 Mannheim debut and have helped to shape the history of the global techno sound.
The lineup continues with cross-over electronic stars Peggy Gou, Nina Kraviz and Amelie Lens, a new generation of techno stars, breaking through cultural and geographical barriers and widening the genre’s cross-over impact. Techno giants Joseph Capriati, Pan-Pot and Maceo Plex continue the weekend’s worldwide reach, further enhanced by house leaning triumphs by Loco Dice, FUSE co-founder Enzo Siragusa, Denis Sulta, and Dekmantel’s most celebrated upstart Palms Trax. The billing is completed with a live performance by recent Carl Cox collaborator Reinier Zonneveld, Afterlife icons Mind Against, the eclectic curation of Sonja Moonear as well as local legends Avision and Mīnk.
