This past weekend, HQ Nightclub at Revel in Atlantic City launched the initiative Revel Nightlife Relief, which succeeded in raising over $75,000 towards the cause to give back to those New Jersey families impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy.
All ticket sales were donated from the jam packed weekend which hosted AN21 (little brother to 1/3 of Swedish House Mafia's Steve Angello) on Friday night, followed by the queen of progressive beats, Bambi on Saturday, and closing out the weekend with electro sensation Afrojack's JACKED Tour on Sunday night.

In a major relief effort to give back after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, Pacha New York and RPM are proud to announce “Help Heal New York,” a benefit for the storm’s victims with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Greater New York Red Cross and other local charities. This unique night of music will take place at Pacha this Wednesday, Nov. 14th and will be hosting a monstrous roster of over 50 DJs featuring both international and local stars.
Just announced today was Erick Morillo and Afrojack as additions to the solid line up. Morillo, who is a New Jersey native and co-owner and chairman of the board for Pacha, said in a statement: “I have so much love for New York and New Jersey and it was devastating to see the effect the storm had on our local communities. I jumped at the chance to get involved in such a good cause and would like to thank the international dance community for coming together to help get our area back on their feet.”
When Eric Prydz announced he would be playing in NYC on Thanksgiving Eve, the Tri-State area knew they would be in for something special this fall. After an overwhelming response and sold out first show, he announced there would be a second show added on Saturday, Nov. 24th at Roseland Ballroom.
This past summer we saw Prydz turn the Jones Beach Amphitheatre upside down at Identity Festival and when he caused a bit of a ruckus (in good fashion, of course) when his set at Beekman Beach Club was shut down and moved to Pacha at the last minute.
The progressive house virtuoso is a dime a dozen in the DJ world as it's a rare and intimate opportunity to catch one of his shows so it's one not to be missed! For more information and tickets click here.
It's no doubt that electronic music has caught the attention of the masses. Since the recent explosion of the genre in 2011, it seems that just about everyone has embraced it. Whether its 'deep house' to 'tropical trap rap' to 'moombahton' the genres continue to expand with a now more than ever diverse roster of seriously mind bending choices. We rounded up a mix of twelve songs that are worthy of so much play time it's ri-dic-u-lous.
More days than others, it seems like we're looking for some nostalgia from music festivals past only to get us in gear for music festivals present. Sometimes there are no words to describe our experiences, however, thankfully we have the live sets to bring us back to those moments. We've rounded up 10 amazing live sets from a solid group of DJ's that produce unforgettable sets and will most definately never get old. Listen, love, and enjoy!

Rihanna seems to let her emotions run free in her new video "Diamonds," off her new album 'Unapologetic' due out November 19th.
Opting for a more neutral, comfortable look, RiRi bares her soul through what seems to be the end of an era. The clips show Ri belting out verses in the desert as two horses are shown running beside one another, a burning rose and Ri's hand slowly losing grip from a man's tattooed arm. The song exceeds the word "deep" and she made sure for the world to know it.
