Little White Earbuds brings us this wonderful podcast and interview from two of the country's most influential party people, Eric Cloutier and Bryan Kasenic (aka Spinoza). Words below by LWE
If you’ve read anything about America’s dance music scene in the last five years, The Bunker, New York’s vaunted club night, has probably received repeated mentions. Founded in 2003 as “an ongoing night of musical exploration,” the events grew into the most reliable parties in the state, if not the country. The Bunker’s focus on quality sounds (both in their bookings and in the massive PAs they use) instead of flashy gimmicks (don’t expect bottle service) has earned the respect of the world-renowned artists who insist on playing their parties and the audiences for whom the events are like church services. Organized by Bryan Kasenic, the proprietor of Beyond Booking who is known as Spinoza when behind the decks, the nights also feature residents Derek Plaslaiko and Eric Cloutier. Cloutier has been making waves outside of The Bunker as well, having helmed two mixes for mnmlssgs and played Japan’s well loved Labyrinth Festival. In anticipation of their performance at Oktave’s Smart Bar party on January 15th, where they’ll provide support for Bunker favorite Donato Dozzy, Spinoza and Cloutier put together LWE’s 71st exclusive podcast as a mouth watering appetizer.
