As we entered the venue up the initial two flights of stairs, a trio of beautiful, exotic, provocatively dressed girls were urging all to get into the spirit & check their pants, jeans, skirts, leggings--whatever they happened to be wearing to cover up their legs at the door.
The brother/best-friend trio from New York is starting the weekend the right way with a big Friday night show at Pacha. Whether it's one of their amazing original releases, like 'Overtime' and 'Take Me Home,' or any of the incredible remixes they've done for big names like Bruno Mars, Hardwell, and Krewella, if you've heard anything from Cash Cash, you know that seeing them perform will be money well spent. General admission tickets start at $25, but if you RSVP ahead of time, entry is free until 12 A.M. Doors open at 10 P.M. for ladies 19 and older, guys 21+.
The incredibly talented 17-year-old Dutch import, Martin Garrix, blew the speakers and the crowd away at Pacha NYC on Friday, January 31st. It was clear from the start that despite his young age, Garrix is capable of playing like the veteran DJs. If there's one thing Martin Garrix was able to achieve throughout his set, it was his fresh take on mixing and matching tunes on the deck. Unveiling several new remixes to hit tracks, Garrix was able to slaughter his set with finesse and ease.
He surged the crowd with major energy with his opening track, 'Animals,' which you all probably think is the most obvious choice. But listen, it was a remix like no other. It was a thumping, wild take on the already popular track. It was a great first impression to make on the crowd and soon after his wild remix of 'Animals,' he eased into Knife Party's edgy tune, 'Antidote.'

Saturday night DJ Oscar G & DJ duo Cocodrills dished out their complimentary blends of tech-house to an electrified crowd over at Pacha NYC. Cocodrills hit the decks around 11pm & worked their way through current tunes, “Creepin” “How To Be Hip” & newest single “You’ll Never Know” while keeping their newfound signature pulse moving steady. The duo stuck to their minimalist core of original tunes for most of the night but eventually found room for a down & dirty reworking of Depeche Mode’s brooding, iconic classic, “Personal Jesus” in the midst of it all.
When New York canceled the third day of Electric Zoo, they also took from the city something it had been craving, a Drumcode Party. Although several artists from the label have had parties in the few months it’s been since the cancelation, New York has still been craving the deep dark beats supplied by Drumcode.

Pacha NYC is known for bringing some of the best artists from across the planet to play on their stage every weekend, and this weekend was no different. With a jam-packed schedule this past Saturday, they hosted Hardwell before he hit Pier 94 and then after him was a set from Jon Gooch aka Feed Me came to take over the decks for a set. A big contrast in sound to say the least, but the crowd was ready for what to come.
Heavy dubstep and bass bounced off the walls throughout the night like a round of ricocheting bullets. He played tracks from his latest release, Calamari Tuesday, as well as some of his old jams like "One Click Headshot" and "Trapdoor". This was an amazing show for any fan of the multi-faceted prodcuer. He even played an unreleased track that he is working on with the one and only Skrillex, which can be heard below!
Fedde Le Grand made his return to Pacha NYC this past Thursday. The Dutch-born DJ/Producer, best known for his 2006 single “Put Your Hands Up for Detroit” definitely gave the crowd a reason to keep their hands held high. His jaw-dropping performance, with a little help from well-known EDM hype man MC Gee, had the crowd’s feet moving from the moment pressed play.
Le Grand is well known for amazing production and energetic sets, but boy did he give NYC a taste of real House music. It was obvious as soon as you walked into the four-story mega club located at 618 W 46th St. in Manhattan. The LED lighting illuminated the walls as Fedde controlled the massive crowd, which was filled with people singing along as their feet moved so fast they were hardly even touching the dance floor.
