My best friend who is American born, speaks portuguese as a second language. Years back he married a brazilian girl that was here on a visa doing nanny work. This past weekend him and I were leaving a Josh Wink party at Sullivan Room. The club closed, and we were in the exit coat check line tired, exhausted and half wasted. My friend overheard a brazilian girl named Gabby standing on line behind us, chattering in portuguese. My friend naturally mingled in with her and her friend Glenn, who was apparently a butler for some wealthy family in Manhattan. Gabby and Glenn invited us to a mysterious after-hours party where the music apparently went "boom-boom-boom-boom" according to Gabby. Glenn had to be at work the next morning but he didnt care, he wanted to stay out. He was completely out of his tree but we couldn't talk him into going home. By a complete stroke of good old fashioned luck, and party-chaos, the 4 of us strangers ended up in a cab headed to a party in the basement of a defunct catholic church somewhere in the middle of Brooklyn at 5:30am. Had no idea what to expect walking into this venue. It was an invite only party and we got in with the help of the friendly folks that invited us. The black cast iron outer gates were guarded by two huge but polite bouncers who had a combined weight of at least 700 pounds. Down a flight of steps to the basement, first thing I see is a 30 foot long LED matrix rig over top of the dj that looked amazing. I look to my right and there is a man wearing nothing but women's underwear and boots, and to my left a dude wearing a gas mask with red lights inside the eyeballs and deer antlers attached to the top. F*cking deer antlers man.

Right in the middle of the room, in front of the dj booth was one of the most beautiful blonde girls I've ever seen. She was the kind of girl that could wear her hair really short and have it look amazing. Her accessories had a fairy / tinkerbell aesthetic to them. I danced next to, but not with her for a track or two. I remember thinking to myself, wow that's a tight dress she's got on. It wasn't until after we left that party that my friend told me her top was all body paint. 0_0

The dj at the controls during all of this madness turned out to be Avatism. Up until this party I knew nothing of this man. He was playing his own particular flavor of dark, slow, creepy sounding minimal techno/tech house that I can't say I had ever heard before. Within about 10 minutes I knew I was witnessing something special. The sound system was supreme. We danced right in front of the speaker stacks all night. Point blank range. No ear pain, just crystal clear relentless basslines and beats all night. I've been to underground techno events before but nothing quite on this level of grimeyness. If I had to guess I'd say Avatism's set was played in the 119 to 120 bpm range for hours on end. It was a master class in subtlety. The crowd was with it the entire time. A once in a lifetime deal. If you like low speed, effective sounds, be sure to go out of your way to see this guy. He's a great after hours dj and his productions are ace.
