~ Visionary Mindz
Mikey Parkay Has been rocking parties across the state for a solid decade now, Also up and down the coast. Mikey is a wonderful person and a fantastic DJ. Mikey and his company VISIONARY MINDZ are responsible for booking and throwing some of the most impressive lineups at multiple room venues I've seen in New York State. Definitely invested a lot of time and resources into the scene that we live. New to the area. He is from Syracuse so lets show him the respect and good time like he deserves. I’m sure he’ll have some great original tracks to go along with dance friendly funk bombs. Very excited to have him in the area I think its our time to shine.This will not be the last time you see him in Saratoga Springs.
MILKDUD ( Drum & Bass )
Milkdud started in the culturally rich Electronic music scene in Buffalo back when it was what it was. No CDs or time for those who weren't obsessed with DJing, Competition was rough and definitely spending way more than they could afford on wax. Milkdud is a legend for his passion and incredible sets. From that time until now he has risen to be one of the most respected longest lasting headlining Drum & Bass DJ’s in the state. Guaranteed to make you want get pissed when you realize his set is over. If you have ever caught his sets at Quick Fixx than you remember what I mean.
D-CONSTRUCT ( Jungle, Scratch)

MENTALLY ILL ( Drum & Bass, Drumstep )
Mentally Ill is on more festival lineups in the last couple years than most are in a lifetime. He brings bangers every mix and is representing the capital district. Be ready for a set of huge tunes. Not many people in Albany are doing what Mentally Ill has been to keep jungle music around the area. Its our pleasure to have him return for Close Encounters.
SPECIAL BLEND ( Drum & Bass, Glitch Hop )

Made his way across the state from the early 2000's Drum and Bass scene in Buffalo and Rochester and landed in Saratoga Springs / Glens Falls area. Always trying to keep pushing the scene for the past 13 years with a drive, passion and and ear for trends that has created an obsession and an ear for talent. Always stocked with dubs and next level tunes in multiple genres and since it’s his birthday expect a rude set from this GEMINI.
