Day Zero’s inception celebrated new beginnings with the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012, its origin yielding one of the world’s most transformative and acclaimed parties. Bringing together the natural, mythic and euphoric, Day Zero returned to the mystical jungles of Tulum this past January 9th.
Day Zero Tulum 2023 opened the twenty-year anniversary season of Lazarus’ groundbreaking Crosstown Rebels imprint, a fitting celebration for one of contemporary house and techno’s most important outfits. The shapeshifting nature shared by Damian and the label boil down to a relentless passion for new sounds and scenes, and a dedication to underground music that has seen Crosstown remain ever-relevant through countless cycles and fads of club culture. This ethos remains constant whether through its flagship Crosstown entity, showcasing some of the genre’s utmost giants like Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, and DJ Krust, the Rebellion imprint’s dedication to the scene’s rising talent, or the newly founded Secret Teachings’ exploration of the outer fringes of live electronica.
