Hyte Park showcases Techno at Governor's Island

Hyte Park took over Governors Island NYC for their second installment after debuting last summer. This years lineup, which was significantly larger than last years, was split into two days. Chris Liebing, Hector, Monoloc, and Tommy Four Seven were all brought back to play this years festival along with techno champions such as Nicole Moudaber, Loco Dice, and Pan-Pot just to name a few.

Hyte was different than a lot of the festivals I have experienced thus far because the entire lineup played techno. When I first heard about Hyte coming back a second year, I was excited to experience all my favorite DJ's together at once, especially being in my hometown, NYC.

Day 1 of the festival was headlined not only by some amazing DJs, but by mother nature, who provided clear skies and sunshine to dance underneath throughout the day. Among the sets who really stole the show were Radio Slave and Paul Ritch. However the star of the show on Saturday was Locodice. 
As if his performance on the island was not enough, he then continued at Pacha's afterparty taking over the decks at 2am and going deep intro the night.

As night turned into day once again, I started off my day boarding the ferry for an exciting Sunday Funday at Hyte Park. One of current favorite producers was my first stop, which was Pan-Pot. However, due to the upcoming birth of his child, Thomas was absent as Tassilo took the stage. Nonetheless Tassilo killed it with an amazing two hour set. Next up it was my first time seeing a full Nicole Moudaber set live and in person. Instantly after she stepped on stage the energy in the room went up about 10 levels (I didn't even think that was possible because of how crazy Pan-Pots set was). Nicole played a bunch of her own groovy tech along with some new jams Midway throughout the day there was a huge boost, as Germany secured its 4th World Cup trophy. With a lineup almost 2/3rds of German DJs, it was easy to see how excited they were!  

Out of all the talent at Hyte this year,  Hector's set stood out to me the most. As one of the industries most talented up and coming producers, you should definitely keep an eye on him or better yet your ears. I remember his set from Pacha a few months back and was hoping he would live up to it, and to my delight he actually surpassed it.Dropping a wide variety of groovy soulful house, Hector's set included tracks like "Keep Movin" by Camiel Daamen, and Lenfantreno by G-rom & Michel Avannier.

He packed out the second stage until Midnight even with techno-god Chris Liebing rocking the main stage with the rain pouring down on NYC. If you ever have a chance to see him in the area, I highly recommend it.

Overall both days of Hyte Park were filled with some great sets, a great crowd and as usual a well-organized and perfectly executed show. As word has spread about this annual summer get together of techno's finest in NYC, we can only hope next year for a return of even larger proportions.
