This year’s Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival boasts a wealth of international talent on its line-up — including hip-hop icons DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist, Detroit techno wizard Omar S, and Austrian producer Dorian Concept. But the two-day event, running Nov. 7–8 at various venues around Williamsburg, is doing right by the borough that lends it its name by booking a number of local producers and performers. Meet the hometown heroes taking part in this weekend’s fest.

Chris Malinchak

Deep house producer and DJ Chris Malinchak has made some sizable waves on the other side of the Atlantic, where his soulful single “So Good to Me” nearly made it to number 1 on the United Kingdom charts thanks to kind words from the likes of Pete Tong and Adele.

Bit Funk

Formerly from the Atlantic coast of Canada, Bit Funk — also known as Randolph Anatole Vespasien III — finds that joyous connection between the intoxicating pulse of vintage disco and the dance-floor delight of modern house music.

Blacky II

Robert Picciotto, or Blacky II as he is known on the DJ circuit, helped found Rinsed, a slightly debauched party that takes place at various locations around the borough every month. On his own, he produces hip-swinging, dizzying mixes that combines electro, house, and boogie.

Turtle Bugg

One half of production team Soul 2 Seoul and co-owner of the dance label Basement Floor Records, Tajh Morris adds a fearlessly political bent to his thoughtful and heated deep house and techno originals.

Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival at various venues around Williamsburg []. Nov. 7–8. $55 per day, $100 for both days, individual show prices vary.
