Size in the Park is back and better than ever for a fun-filled celebration of all things EDM! Former Swedish House Mafia member and label owner extraordinaire, Steve Angello is partnering up with friends for two nights of raging in Rumsey Playfield in Central Park.
“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!

This was no typical Saturday in Central Park. The Upper East Side was about to get christened by rave kids of all kinds and most importantly, by 1/3 of the Swedish House Mafia, Mr. Steve Angello. He brought his expertise in doing what he does best to the Size Matters event and put on one of the most memorable EDM shows New York City had seen the entire summer.
Rumsey Playfield was home to the sold out, 'Size In The Park,' with Steve Angello headlining along with mates from his Size Records, Third Party, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, AN21 and Max Vangeli. Making their NYC debut, Third Party dropped a lot of their own tracks including, "Thank You," feat. Loleatta Holloway and their remix of The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, "Otherside." An impressive set to say the least, Sunnery and Ryan created an elaborate tone playing funky house tracks that no music lover could deny. They dropped classics like Joe Brunning's "Now Let Me See You Work," and the most refreshing bootleg of the whole set, Hardwell's "Spaceman" vs. Ultra Nate's "Free.” After, AN21 and Max Vangeli hit the stage shining with a set heavy on beats with original tracks like, “People Of The Night,” (feat.Tiesto) and "Fresh Start."
In the wee hours of the morning, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano took over control of the crowd keeping the party crazy until 7am the next morning! Opening up with their own song, Tribeca, the duo mashed up the track with vocals from Adele's hit Rolling in the Deep. Their transitions from mash ups to popular remixes including their remix of Kaskade's Dynasty track had everyone singing along as if it were a karaoke night. The epic night jam packed with memorable DJ sets left partygoers speechless leaving as the sun was already risen that next morning.
Here is a video of Dirty South premeiring his latest single, "Eyes Wide Open" with Thomas Gold and vocals by Kate Elsworth.
