As co-founder, resident DJ, and one of the creative minds of Blk|Market Membership since its founding in 2006, Taimur Agha has been instrumental in rebuilding New York’s resurgent dance community after its retreat to the underground post-9/11. When Bill Patrick, Nick Ac, and Dennis Rodgers ended ROBOTS, they handed the torch to Taimur and partner Fahad Haider to become the leading lights the next nightlife era in New York. Blk|market Membership’s guests are a who’s who of the scene’s most important names; Taimur’s personal DJ resume includes multiple appearances at world renown clubs, festivals and parties: fabric, Panorama Bar, Montreal’s STEREO, Trouw, Club der Visionaere, Space Terrace Miami, SmartBar, Moscow’s Arma17 & Gipsy, Romania’s Sunwaves, Francois K’s Deep Space, Detroit’s infamous Need I Say More, Ibiza’s Zoo Project and tINI & the Gang parties, Apollonia’s BPM party, B018 in Beirut, Dubai’s Analog Room and many more, alongside many of the world’s most important DJs. As head of buying and distribution at Halcyon Records from 2008 until mid-2014, Taimur’s work helped lead the resurgence of the local scene. His community-oriented radio show The Bandwagon ran 116 episodes and brought together labels and promoters from around the city, with showcases for The Bunker, ReSolute, L.I.E.S., Deconstruct Music, Underground Quality, The Corner, Plan B Recordings, Blkmarket headliners, and many others. On the strength of these accomplishments, Taimur devoted himself full-time to his own DJ career, his forthcoming labels, and The Selectors, his new event series. With ten years of history and accolades for helping to revive one of the world’s most important dance music scenes, Taimur has held an esteemed position as an architect of New York’s contemporary scene as well as guiding lights for its future.
Will Renuart is one of those DJs that's constantly evolving and on the lookout for fresh, new music he can bring to the dancefloor. Listen to his sets and you will genuinely hear the care that goes into his music selections. Will grew up in Miami's techno and acid house heyday, and he would go on to open the Electric Pickle in 2009. The club has since grown into a worldwide phenomenon. And Will's approach to club operations has been hands-on, from the sound and design to its constantly changing themes. He's thrown parties with the likes of Wolf + Lamb, Phonique, Claude Von Stroke, Dixon, Mathew Jonson, Cassy and Toro Y Moi. The Electric Pickle has showcased label parties from highly-respected imprints such as Crosstown Rebels, Dirtybird, Poker Flat, Drumcode and Diynamic, while cementing a solid reputation as one of the best clubs in the world to play at. While Will has been busy getting the Pickle to where it is, now he's about to embark on a tour both nationwide and internationally.
