Known as having one of the best nightlife scenes in the world, one group that remains a top source of pride in NYC consists of DJs that really make each night out one that is lucrative. Each set exudes each DJs quirk and passion making them a vital prescence in nightlife forever. We've rounded up some of our favorite DJ sets from NYC localite's that make us realize why we love going out in this city.
1. DJ BAMBI, BAMBICAST (Episode 002): Jam out to this killer set filled with huge progressive beats. Bambi constantly delievers potent big room house tracks fit for a festival but work like a charm for the dancefloor.
First things first, you better recognize that Steve Aoki stays true to his wild ways even when inside a hotspot like NYC's Lavo Nightclub. Thursday night might have as well been a stage at a festival because that's the type of vibes that went on all night long.
Drawing in tons of party-goers, Lavo filled in quickly to the opening sounds of progressive house Queen, DJ Bambi, who kept it going full force churning out the best of the best in big room house beats until 1am. As the lights dimmed and music dulled, Steve Aoki approached his throne for the night and produced an impeccable two hour set that was nothing short of stunning.
Did you ever think you could use your MetroCard for something artistic? Probably not but guess what, it's been done! The tiny yellow and blue NYC signatures have inspired Nina Boesch to create one-of-a-kind collages.
Boesch uses the front of the cards to make yellow, orange, blue and black collages while she uses the back for black and white collages. The collages can be made into anything from landmarks to portraits and typography. And what's the best part? Almost all are always New York related!
If you are interested in a collage, please visit www.metrocardyourself.com and contact Nina for a custom piece!

One of the most recognizable and energetic names in the realm that is dance music is Mr. Steve Aoki. The bossman of Dim Mak records is making a stop at the luxe LAVO NYC nightclub this Thursday, Oct. 18th and in proper Aoki fashion some ritual cake throwing may occur or better...a casual stage dive.
A leader in electronic dance music established in 1996, Aoki has a pretty sweet tracklist of production and remix work. His recent album, Wonderland, features top talent such as LMFAO, Wynter Gordon, Laidback Luke, and Lil Jon. While he is a hybrid producer his DJ sets are just as chaotic and filled with gripping progressive and electro beats.
Listen below to his recent set on Electric Area to get a taste of what's going to go down this Thursday!
