Sensation Innerspace Comes To America

A sea of white clad ravers of all kinds set out to Brooklyn, New York on the weekend of Oct. 26th for the European born event, Sensation Innerspace. Gracing major cities like Amsterdam, Oslo and Belgium, the monumental event was the first of its kind to hit the States and it made shockwaves as the first dance music show to christen the Barclays Center.

On Saturday, upon entering Barclays, the subways and streets were filled to the brim with the masses of fans donning their all-white-everything apparel, all in amazing spirit of course. In the main arena lied an unbelievable stage set up. From the all white lotus flower acropolis that hosted the rotating DJ booth to the extreme production elements to the sound system, Sensation was bound to leave an incredible and successful mark on New York that night.

Partypocalypse: ULTRA Opening Day Party Guide

Anticipation has a funny way of heightening an event: both through its capacity to incite a slow-building crescendo of fervor, and in its ability to massively inflate one’s expectations. In the case of Ultra Fest, the hype is certainly warranted—as this monumentally epic musical endeavor deserves an equally salacious array of festivities. It’s a natural compliment—the proverbial jelly to the fest's peanut butter—and for those whose musical and carnal appetites remain unsatiated, there is a cornucopia of bashes (both musical and decadent) that correspond with the inaugural day of Ultra Fest.

Cielo Club Celebrates 9th Anniversary

Can you believe Cielo has been around for 9 years? Now that's something to celebrate. Espcially in the fickle nightlife industry! As one of the original clubs before the Meatpacking District was cool, it has held its own for nearly a decade in what is now NYC's trendiest party neighborhood. The club is known for having two of the longest running weekly parties in the U.S. featuring some of the biggest DJs in the world. Just in the past year, they've hosted star DJs such James Zabiela, Chris Liebing, Ben Watt, Roger Sanchez, Mark Knight and Nick Warren.

Joonbug Exclusive: Honey Dijon Mix

Mondays needs slathering. By that we mean a full clean shave, and a dollop of honey on top of your steel cut oats.

Honey Dijon would do the trick. (Sans chicken fingers of course, you're on that no-fried bit.)

In case you're not familiar, this saucy gal started a residency at NYC's Cielo back in June and also does a weekly disco and early house party under the Chelsea hotel. (Very big with the high fashion and art crowd-- people who, like you, are avoiding chicken fingers.)

Yesterday, the Chicago-bred Honey Dijon released her new orignal single off of Toolroom Records, "Until the Day" featuring vocals by Dajae. Mixing her soulful, house roots with the deep underground vibes of New York, the city she now calls home, Honey Dijon has created an instant house classic. Remixed by Italy's Alex Kenji, Under, and Aki Bergen, the full release offers a variety of beats for all your listening situations. Honey is set to release another track off of Toolroom in the very near future.

Knight in Shiny Disco Armor

Who doesn’t like a premiere?

The Toolroom Knights, a megamix created by Toolroom Records, is premiering tonight at Pacha, on the wayyyy west part of midtown.

The club has 30,000 square feet of space, which makes it pretty versatile in terms of entertainment. Entrance is free before 12, and doors open at 10 PM.
