Teksupport had 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.
It was nearly three years since the last time Sven Väth performed in New York, making his return a truly momentous occasion. Fans refer to him 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. On March 30th, Sven will be bringing Butch and Cassy along with him for a special B2B performance, plus Drumcode up-and-comer Ilario Alicante for his American debut, and Taimur for his Cocoon takeover in Brooklyn along with the help from Teksupport.
