We’ve all been waiting a long time for this announcement, and that day is finally here: Der Bunker has returned. Additionally, I’ve been invited to start the year off alongside Tristan/Iseult and Joe Bear at Der Bunker’s Belief Defect pre-party.
If you’ve been around the Phoenix techno scene for more than a few years, then the Bunker crew needs no introduction. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, Der Bunker was one of the first local groups to take techno seriously throughout the past decade. Beyond that, they’ve been doing the damn thing for longer than most of us have even been familiar with the genre. It’s a massive honor to be asked to perform with a group of individuals that I more or less idolize, and I cannot wait to see what the year may have in store.
We’ll be doing this party at the Lunchbox in Phoenix – The venue has quite an underground dive bar feel, but with a very impressive and well tuned sound system built by the Der Bunker boss himself. Playing on good sound is a very elusive experience here in the valley, one that I have been chasing since I started taking music seriously.

Since this is a prelude to the big show, it’s only right that I plug that event as well. Bunker is bringing Belief Defect (Drumcell + Luis Flores) out to the desert for their first Arizona performance. The duo is widely regarded as one of the most ground breaking live-techno acts currently performing, and the hype is very well deserved. Needless to say, I’m humbled to prime Phoenix heads for their appearance here in the valley with this pre-party! Information for the Belief Defect party itself can be found here:
