Event Review: Adventure Club At Lavo

The unrelenting New York City climate in the middle of a very chilly January did not stop guests one bit from venturing to posh nightclub, Lavo, on Saturday to view Adventure Club man the decks. The Canadian duo known as, Adventure Club, were probably better equipped for this weather being Montreal natives, but that's besides the point.

If you aren't already familiar with Adventure Club, all you need to know is that their genre is unique. It's dubbed as the 'clubstep' genre, and it's exactly what it sounds like. It's mood enhancing music you can vibe to, given the vibrating synths flowing effortlessly throughout. As a true Adventure Club fan, their set did not disappoint. They came on roughly around 1 AM and opened the crowd to some big room favorites like Martin Garrix's latest song, 'Wizard.' That was sure to get the overly packed club narrowing in on the dance floor from all corners of the venue.

Event Review: Sick Individuals @ Lavo 11/1

The Halloween spirit was still in full swing Friday night (November 1), as Dutch DJ’s Sick Individuals rocked New York City’s Lavo Nightclub. The upscale club was filled up with people dressed in a wide array of costumes, while some preferred to just dress up classically for the night. The affair was a fun one, as music blasted deep into the night, with people losing themselves on the dance floor while sweating off their face paint, as well as people in the VIP booths popping champagne to celebrate the holiday weekend.

The Dutch stars sets the party on fire playing their smashes, including their recently released, and Dannic assisted record, “Blueprint.” The energetic crowd thoroughly enjoyed themselves as voices were surely lost from the madness of the night, while the drinks flowed and memories were made.
