Streamland picks: Authentically Plastic, Erykah Badu, Mike Servito

It’s another party-packed week in Streamland, and we’re here to highlight some not-to-be-missed streams from Resident Advisor’s new geo-tag for virtual events.

This Thursday, April 30th, lay your ears on something new with a set live from the Space Miami terrace by DJ Tennis, who’ll be sharing unreleased material and a few new tracks made in quarantine. On the same night, Pennsylvania’s Honcho will be kicking off a new weekly streaming series by Hot Mass, with sets from Aaron Clark and d’Adhemar. If you’d like to get a taste of Berlin’s underground from a safe streaming distance, check out this broadcast from party-collectives Gegen, Radiant Love and Warning.

Start your Friday night right with sets from Discwoman-affiliate Ciel and SIREN cofounder Sybil, who’ll be mixing up a varied selection of dreamy, banging, and psychedelic sounds. For fans of rougher, dark and moody tracks this stream on Berlin radio station HÖR will feature local acts like TV.OUT alongside representatives of Greek label Pi Electronics.

Make sure your avatar’s ‘fit is on point before Saturday because it’s the second edition of PARASITE LABEL’s IMVU rave series Slit, this time with sets from LOLSNAKE and M7 x Virgo. If you’d like to party with a purpose, 24 DJs including Authentically Plastic, Shy One and Catu Diosis will join forces to bass-up your bedroom and raise money for UK-based QTIBIPOC who’ve been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. NTS is presenting an all-day mega stream with a host of big names from across the genre spectrum. Tune into this for a guided meditation by Erykah Badu and performances from artists such as Yves Tumor and Bbymutha. And to round out this eventful Saturday Beats in Space boss Tim Sweeney will be linking up with Fantastic Man in homage to the night they were supposed to play on this date at Hackney venue Night Tales.

Lastly, just because The Bunker’s‘s IRL dancefloor is closed for now doesn’t mean resident Mike Servito can’t continue his tradition of legendary closing sets. End your weekend on a high note by tuning in here to fade out your Sunday.
