“Born to be queen”, according to Vice’s THUMP, Cakes Da Killa has seen a steep rise within the last two years, already with two highly regarded albums under his belt.

In collaboration with 120 Minutes and Swagger Like Us, we bring you a lineup this Friday night stacked with fierce personalities. From Cakes Da Killa’s ferocious lyricism to MikeQ’s Vogue-house, and Rye Rye’s fresh sound, dancing shoes are a must Oct. 17 as we bring together these three bold characters.

Cakes and MikeQ are on their ’2Cunts 1Whip’ tour together this month, both dishing out quite the performances with a roaring stage presence. Catch them tomorrow — and if you haven’t bought tickets yet, NOW is your chance. Grab them HERE!

THUMP got a chance to hang with Cakes for a day. Read the whole feature HERE!

Snoop Dogg is more than a legend — he’s debatably a ‘god’ of hip-hop. We’re honored to have him DJ here at Public Works tonight. This is a mix that has had our office buzzing, so we thought we would share. No, it’s not really techno, but great nonetheless.

It is your LAST chance to buy tickets for tonight’s show, so get your presales HERE!

Animals are making themselves at home on the walls of Roll Up Gallery.
An eclectic group of contemporary artists will exhibit their artistic interpretations and tap into their own concepts of the spirit animal.

Ahead of this Saturday’s Icee Hot event with D’Marc Cantu, New York duo Slow To Speak name his new release on Sequencias as one of the best 12″s this month. Hear what they had to say below, and check D’Marc Cantu out this Saturday right here at Public Works. Click HERE for more information on the event!

“This is the latest release on the Sequencias label out of NYC. D’Marc Cantu has dropped a couple other 12″s on here, but this is by far his and the label’s finest release yet. It sounds completely contemporary, the kind of shit that should be getting made with electronic music NOW. Yeah, he can make some dope jak tracks, but with songs like this he shows his complete grasp of relevant sounds and structure. This is exactly what you imagine should be all over store shelves with the amount of equipment … Read more ›
Ahead of this Friday’s affair with Recondite, Ten Walls and Jon Charnis, Ableton sits down with Recondite, the German techno producer who has been making waves in the scene. With a third album upcoming, this next one on Innervisions, we’re excited to see what he has to offer Friday at Pubic Works.

Recondite: Make Your Own Color
In 2011 Recondite emerged from the south of Germany with a poised and elegant brand of techno. Marked by a distinctly animate emotional core, his productions blur organic and synthetic processes into a melange that has reached far beyond the narrow realms of heady, heavy techno. His releases on Dystopian, Absurd Recordings and his own Plangent imprint are marked by an assured melodic instinct and an attention to detail that makes for crisp, intimate and … Read more ›
In four years, the country sees a new leader, a new soccer team is bestowed a cup, the Moon’s shadow crosses the Earth’s surface. In four years, we’ve built Public Works from the ground up – relentlessly bringing the best talent in house, techno, bass, disco and more. On Sept. 20, we’re celebrating 1,460 days of existence with a legend: Danny Tenaglia.



Some DJs are famous for their personalities. Some are known for their production work, while others are known for their ability to read a crowd. And still others occupy a special place in the universe reserved for those that are both revered by their peers and worshipped by their fans. Danny Tenaglia is one of these DJs. Having cut his teeth among the early days of New York and Miami club culture, Tenaglia is known for an almost supernatural style of mixing that encompasses various forms of … Read more ›
