White Material Label Night at Flash
White Material is the New York-based vinyl-only label by DJ Richard and Young Male, and featuring artist Galcher Lustwerk. Beginning in 2012, White Material have become world-renowned for clean lines and sold-out pressings. Young Male AKA Quinn Taylor calls it "Working Man's Techno," though his label's output has become something larger: nuanced cuts pushing boundaries through convention.

Galcher Lustwerk's productions have made a big splash in the past year . An idiosyncratic deep house DJ and producer who habitually talks/raps over his sets in his own very unique way, the combination of musical content and originality of presentation have earned high critical regard and an increasingly rabid fan base. On a label not short of distinctive sounds, Galcher Lustwerk brings the all-important quality of deep mood and atmospheres that focuses their events so tightly.
DJ Richard made the shift to Berlin just as the label was taking off, and it's a move that has served him well as his Source Material nights, co-curated by Mo Probs, have become the talk of the underground there, and past guests have included Traxx, Ron Morelli, Hard Wax buyer Finn Johannsen, and others. Rooted equally in noise, techno, and an unashamed love for ghetto house, DJ Richard's sets are breathlessly hard, dirty affairs that have earned deservedly high marks and are sure to get almost any crowd riled up.
Young Male's label White Material has recently gotten Resident Advisor's best label of the month. We've been following White Material since over the summer and the releases White Material crew Galcher Lustwerk, DJ Richard and Young Male have been putting out are changing the acoustic landscape of Brooklyn, bringing the industrial feel of labels like Ostgut Ton to NYC after moving here from Providence, RI.
