Due to personal circumstances beyond his control Scott Henry had to give us a raincheck on his return. Scott promised he will make it up to us and you in the near future. On a happier note, Heather Heart has joined the S.U.N. family to complete the STORM rave trifecta, along with Frankie Bones, and Adam X! This is the first time our entire S.U.N. Warehouse line-up is spinning together at the same party in decades!
SUN COLLECTIVE in association with: ROTARY, SONIC GROOVE BERLIN, GROOVE THERAPY & ORIGINAL BROOKLYN Present...
THE PARTY 17 YEARS IN THE MAKING...
Twenty years ago a wave crashed on the shores of NYC. The wave was of sound, color and collectivity. From the ashes of conflict and pettiness rose this mighty phoenix called rave, and it changed everything. The STORM was upon us, and the new rule was of dance and trance. The new ethos was, “By the ravers, for the ravers…” Tonight we pay homage to where we have been, where we are, and where we are going.
This is the first Brooklyn warehouse style event that Dennis the Menace, Fredstrong, Frankie Bones, Adam X, Heather Heart, Eddy Van Raven are working together on since the last STORM rave on 12/12/92.
After the STORM the S.U.N. always shines…
IN THE S.U.N. WAREHOUSE:
FRANKIE BONES - STORM rave, Sonic Groove, NY/LA
The Godfather of Techno himself! Tonight we celebrate 20 years of NY rave, and you cannot talk about NY rave, or even US rave, without talking about Frankie Bones. He was the first US DJ to spin the London Orbital rave in 1989, and that UK hanger party planted the seed, which grew into the East Coast rave scene. In 1990 he opened Groove Records with his brother Adam X, and along with Heather Heart launched the now legendary STORM raves in 1991. Frankie has been a pioneer and an innovator in United States EDM, ever since its inception. Let’s face it, if it wasn’t for Bones, none of us would be here tonight…
ADAM X - STORM rave, Sonic Groove, NY/Berlin
Adam X, along with his brother Frankie Bones is a founder of both Groove Records, and STORM rave. In 1995 he created the Sonic Groove record label, which he now runs from East Berlin Germany.

In his career, he has performed alongside Aphex Twin, Derrick May, Nitzer Ebb, Andrew Weatherall and numerous others. He’s performed at thousands of legendary events and club nights globally including Mayday, DEMF, Mutek, Berghain, Tresor, PS1, Monox and Fabric. When he is not recording and organizing events in Berlin, he is whipping his devotees into a frenzy at raves and clubs the world over. Witness his return to where it all began
