For over a decade, Biz Martinez has put together some of Miami's most memorable parties. This Thursday, South Beach's crowned jewel, LIV nightclub, prepares to celebrate the birthday of its music director, with the aid of Dutch superstar Nicky Romero, for the second year in a row.
Opening the show is producer Don Diablo - you may know him from his 2012 hit record "Light's Out" featuring Angela Hunte, and his work as an ambassador for Dance4Life. He's been making bounds in the music world since and we couldn't imagine a better act to lead us into Romero's signature high-octane and unpredictable sets. We're curious to hear what the Dutch powerhouse have in store for us, whether its full-throttle electro or some of the tech-ier sounds they've explored in the past.
Zedd's latest single, "Stay The Night", which features Hayley Williams of Paramore, has been a big hit since its release. Already with a variety of remixes of it being released so far, Nicky Romero has decided to let go of his rendition of the track. This version is stripped away of its original beat and given a whole new feel that will be recognizable for Romero fans. Check it out and let us know what "Stay The Night" remix is your favorite.
This will be available to puchase on November 5th.
If you have ever wondered what it would be like to DJ a set at a major festival, well now you have the opportunity to find out. Nicky Romero has teamed up with Google, to promote their Google Glass technology--which reminds us a little of the Iron Man suit, without all the guns and jets. Through the Google Glass, Romero was able to record portions of his set at TomorrowWorld. You can slightly see what its like behind the scenes at the festival and what its like to be on stage as Nicky Romero - pretty epic stuff.
This past summer was one NY EDM fans will not soon forget. The summer was packed with huge festivals, club nights headlined by superstar guest DJ’s and amazing shows at Governor’s Island. It was only fitting then that Nicky Romero closed Governor’s Island with one of the most exciting, fulfilling shows of the year! Making his second to last stop on his Nothing Toulouse Tour, Nicky Romero and friends gave the thousands in attendance a perfect ending to the summer.
It all started at 4pm with thousands of ravers lined up outside the ferry. Fans dressed up in their finest raver gear and Guy Fawkes masks hopped on the ferry partying even as the boat made its way over to the island. Once docked, fans quickly made their way off the boat and over to the main stage. Fans had plenty of water, food and alcohol to enjoy in the beautiful weather. Warming up the crowd was the budding Dutch duo Vicetone. The duo did a great job keeping the crowd moving and energized as fans rushed onto the island. Following Vicetone was the Swedish DJ John Dahlback who absolutely rocked Governor’s! Dahlback had the crowd raging hard, jumping with each beat and singing along to the vocals. Loud chants of USA broke out even as the crowd was filled with flags of various nations. The VIP area was just as fun and crazy as the main floor. Everybody in the venue was in full raging mode. For a while it seemed as though it would be nearly impossible to top the energy that Dahlback had flowing throughout the animated crowd. That was until Dahlback ended his brilliant set and chants for Nicky Romero rose to deafening levels.
Nicky Romero has had a very successful summer tearing down festival and tour stages across the globe. Now the Dutch superstar is winding down his Nothing Toulouse Tour with a stop at NYC’s Governor’s Island on September 28th!
Rain or shine, this Governor’s Island stop on the tour is sure to be one of the best. NYC always turns up for Nicky Romero! The event, presented by RPM and Protocol Events, will also feature Swedish DJ/Producer John Dahlback who recently dropped his smash hit “We Were Gods”.
“So who wants to get wet? If you want to get wet make some motherf*cking noise!” Oh yeah, we want to get wet.
At 6 pm, just before David Solano entered the stage, hot pink paint sprayed generously form a hose onto an excited crowd. However, this was simply an introduction—basically a tease. It was the first paint- shooting of the evening, and it was used to get the crowd excited and wanting more. It worked. When David began, the energy level vastly increased and people began to show some real interest in what was taking place on stage. We heard tracks like Hardwell’s “Three Triangles (Losing My Religion),” Afrojack ft. Chris Brown’s “As Your Friend,” and a mashup of “Young, Wild and Free” (Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa ft. Bruno Mars) vs. “Mammoth” (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike). We also got to hear Solano’s latest track, “Loco.” But it wasn’t until R3hab & Solano’s “Do It (Life In Color Anthem 2013)” played that the real paint party began. Neon green and pink paint shot 40 feet into the crowd from guns, cannons, and hoses, in conjunction with thousands of pieces of white confetti. Appropriate.
Life In Color, formerly known as Dayglow, “The World’s Largest Paint Party,” began in 2006 on college campuses in Florida. Seven years later, Life In Color is no longer just a paint party, but a unique experience where you can see some of the biggest DJ’s in the world perform while you throw paint in your friends’ faces. The party gets bigger and better every year, and on Friday, August 16th, New Jersey is going to see one of the most exciting paint parties yet. With Nicky Romero headlining the show, Borgore, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, and David Solano and Kryoman as supporting acts, we’re excited to be a part of the madness!
The newest creation in the city’s EDM explosion is brand new superclub Light, a Cirque du Soleil-inspired venue inside Mandalay Bay Hotel. Opening April 26th, Light will provide attendees with state-of-the-art interactive productions. And who better to announce a residency at this larger-than-life nightclub than dynamic duo Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike?
