Time Warp USA is in the books, and the event brand's first Stateside gathering gave techno fans of NYC a night to remember. Occupying two massive rooms of the New York Expo Center over two days, the festival saw tenured tastemakers as well as promising up-and-comers deliver memorable performances.

Floor 1 was graced by the likes of more accessible selectors such as Richie Hawtin, Sven Väth, Maceo Plex and Loco Dice. Among the Floor 2 billings were minimal mainstays like Nina Kraviz, Sonja Moonear, and a rare U.S. appearance by Ricardo Villalobos. Amelie Lens arguably played the best set of the former room, with Peggy Gou leaving the most lasting impression on revelers in the latter.

Time Warp's inaugural 1994 edition brought such headliners as Speedy J, Laurent Garnier and John Acquaviva to Ludwigshafen, Germany. In the years since organizers have held events in cities like Vienna, Bremen and Prague - but the most common location has been Mannheim, Germany.
