Any New York City club venue that lasts for 8 years and is still going strong calls for a celebration. The dance floors of Pacha nightclubs worldwide are famous for bringing all the hottest DJs to spin for the night and now Pacha New York is celebrating their 8 year mark by featuring a December line up that is so packed with renowned DJs, you need to check out this repertoire.
The Eight-Year Anniversary event kick starts with Grammy-nominated, Austrailian DJ Dirty South on Saturday, December 7th. As a Pacha favorite, he will bring his big-room style House sounds to get the crowd going in high gear.
It’s really great to speak with you again! The last time we met, you told us that you were working on a new track with a Dutch rock band, which has yet to be released worldwide. How did working with DI-RECT compare with collaborating with an electronic dance music artist?
Usually, I think that about 80% goes online. Everything goes back and forth online so you hardly see each other, maybe once. In this case, it was really different because the whole band came to my studio. We really sat down—we had a piano, one of the guys plays the guitar. Especially the way it started out, like a whole jam—we got together about four times, and we finished the whole thing. Which I thought was really cool. But it was hard as well because there was a lot of discussion because everyone had to like it and we didn’t want to compromise. We wanted to do something that we were both 100% happy with.
An ocean, an ocean of white. That is exactly what we witnessed as we embarked on our magical expedition via the 4 train to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center this past weekend.
“You must be going to Sensation!” said a fellow subway-goer, observing our fully white attire. The notion of unity had already begun, and we hadn’t even crossed the Manhattan/Brooklyn border yet.
Above all, and aside from providing guests with an incredible experience meshing performing arts with music, Sensation strives to promote a sense of harmony among concertgoers. When we finally arrived at the Atlantic Ave-Barclays Center stop, the milieu was overwhelmingly…white. Unlike most other shows and festivals across the U.S., the crowd’s higher maturity level was evident simply in the way people dressed, particularly the girls. We observed most of them clad in white dresses and heels, or in costumes ranging from angels to mermaids. Even considering the minimal clothing, there was a strange elegance to these ladies that we don’t often perceive, because Sensation is one of the few touring shows in the U.S. with an age restriction of 21+. This factor alone made attending the event a no-brainer.

Following two successful nights in Oakland and Las Vegas, Sensation White brought its full production setup to Miami for the next stop along its current U.S. Tour. Known for nesting the home of the Miami Heat, it's not often that the American Airlines Arena hosts an electronic music event within its doors. But with the magnitude of an event like Sensation White, no other venue would have done justice. As guests flocked from all corners of South Florida, and even from around the world, to Miami's beautiful oceanfront cityscape, it was easy to distinguish between your average downtown wayfarer and those who were gearing up for a dive into the depths of Sensation's Ocean of White. Approaching the steps of the Arena, guests joined their fellow pioneers in anticipation for their odyssey into the unknown. For that special night alone, the idea of not wearing white after Labor Day bore no meaning whatsoever.
Its 2013 ADE week and one of its highlights is Fedde Le Grand's return to Amerstam for his annual-road block event. For the first time ever Fedde is linking up with MTV to broadcast the event dubbed MTV Presents: Fedde La Grand Rocks Amsterdam. The event will take place in the heart of the Dutch Capital on October 18th. Escape Venue will not only be the host to Fedde for the night, but a bunch of other European rock stars - DI-RECT, F-Man, Michael Calfana, MC Gee, Kubik LeFunk, Roul and Doors, and Tim Cullen.
Easily one of Revealed Recordings’ hottest artists, Dannic is the artist to watch as he continues to navigate the EDM circuit. Between his current tour, his new radio show, and his most recent release, ‘Rocker’, the Dutch DJ isn’t showing any sign of slowing down. With performances at the biggest festivals of the summer, including EDC Las Vegas and a debut at Tommorrowland, Dannic also had the chance to take the main stage at Electric Zoo on Randall’s Island in New York this past weekend. After delivering a festival-worthy set, full of energy, big drops, and banging tracks, Dannic took a few minutes to chat with us about his experience, how he got here, and what we can expect from him for the remainder of the year.
At 10 am Sunday morning we couldn’t tell whether our phones were ringing or our alarms was going off, until we groggily looked over at the screen and realized that someone was actually calling. The first words we heard were, “So guess what,” but in a rather monotone voice. Unprepared for the actual news, we were hopeful that something exciting might have happened. But, no, that really was not the case. “Ezoo is cancelled,” she said. Having been awoken by this information all in one blow, we thought it was a joke, or maybe a dream. Again, no. We couldn't exactly wrap our head around it, nor could anyone else.
In the midst of gearing up for his nationwide “Road to Ultra” tour, Fedde le Grand has somehow managed to squeeze in enough studio time to birth his brand-new electro-gem remix “Glowing.”
A rework of Nikki Williams’ track, “Glowing” is the punchy, progressive dance-floor dynamite we’ve all been craving. Composing around the song’s powerhouse, soulful vocals, le Grand has sprinkled on his signature pounding drumchords and peaking hi-hats for a turn-it-up track that’s sure to blow out speakers.
