Teksupport have placed themselves as New York’s premier underground promoters, continually bringing cutting-edge and legendary artists to the East Coast metropolis. They’ve once again lived up to their high booking standards by bringing Sven Väth after a long hiatus from the States for a special showcase around his celebrated club night and imprint, Cocoon.
The last time Sven Väth’s name appeared on a New York billing was nearly three years ago, making his return a truly momentous occasion. Known lovingly by fans as “Papa Sven,” the German stalwart has been shaping modern dance music since it exploded during the 1980s. Early hits like the seminal “Electrica Salsa” along with his group Off shot him into the global spotlight, while his labels Eye Q and Harthouse became known as pioneering forces in house, techno, and trance. His name has consistently topped billings at the world’s most iconic venues and festivals, including Love Parade, Time Warp, Awakenings, Berghain, Tresor, Twilo, Amnesia, and Pacha.
Cocoon was conceived in 1996 and has since grown into one of the biggest entities in clubland. What started as a party series that Sven spent his entire savings on has since evolved into an Ibiza mainstay, booking agency, and record label known for launching the careers of Dubfire, Loco Dice, Martin Buttrich, and many more. Followers of the brand know well they’re in good hands with Väth at the helm, be it through record releases or parties. Come March 30, Sven is bringing Butch and Cassy along with him for a special b2b, plus Drumcode up-and-comer Ilario Alicante for his American debut, and Taimur for his Cocoon takeover in Brooklyn.
Boasting an unwavering dedication to hosting the world’s best DJs in raw spaces with top notch production, Teksupport has quickly risen to set the standard on producing warehouse events. Since their inception, Teksupport has brought groundbreaking brands such as Time Warp, Circoloco and Solomun +1 to NYC while also hosting an array of artists that includes Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Maceo Plex, The Martinez Brothers, Adam Beyer, Marco Carola + many others.
