About Us.

Direkt Influence and Microcosm House have brought you Preservation Utica for almost a decade and we don't see any reason to stop now!!! This monthly event was created on the premise of showcasing the best in local funk, house, glitch, downtempo, breakbeat, techno, nu disco DJs as well as special guests from out of town. Positive vibes, quality music, good people and liquid wisdom all converge at the best spot in Utica for live music: The DEV.

To create the optimum visual/sound experience, Preservation Utica showcases not only music, but visual art as well. The DEV has rotating monthly art exhibits, which we are proud to incorporate into our nights. So come on down, and have a drink with us, and just try to resist the urge to DANCE!

Mission Statement:

Direkt Influence is a collective of artists, musicians, MCs, promoters, designers, freaks, weirdos and eccentric people. We are not a corporation.

We believe that working together with a positive attitude will produce a greater influence than if we were to work separately. Through this philosophy we will build, establish and maintain a sustainable culture for Electronic Dance Music in the CNY, and beyond for many, many years to come.

This blog will be under new management soon, and will be updated more often. We apologize about the lack of content currently.
