One of the best things at last year's CMW was Berlin-based DJ/producer Machinedrum's set at the Happy Endings dim sum rave, so it's great news that party promoters Mansion are bringing him back for their NYE event. And if the music isn't enough of a draw, they've found an amazing old factory for the location, making for a much more unusual experience than your standard club.
