On a night in which everyone deemed as a "once in a lifetime day", the date 11/11/11 is certainly one for the record books for Pacha NYC. Headlining the night was Australian DJ sensation Dirty South. Accompanying him on the line up for the evening was an opening set by Carl Kennedy and house DJ duo Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, who have been blowing up through the electronic music scene over the past year.
Walking into Pacha NYC that night, I caught a glimpse of the opening set by DJ Carl Kennedy who started the party off properly with an array of dance floor hits. Wall to wall covered with people, Pacha was flowing with Champagne and bottle service attendants all leaning over the mezzanine awaiting for the man on the night. Chants of "Dirty South" filled the air, as the DJ born as Dragan Roganović entered the booth of the Midtown hotspot. Dirty South came prepared with plenty of dirty beats, keeping the at-capacity crowd mesmerized by his every move. Playing some of his latest hits including one of his new singles, "Walking Alone" that proved to be a dance floor destroyer, fully equipped with tons of CO2 smoke and LED lights. On his official twitter account, Dirty South had announced to fans that he would premiere his latest track with Thomas Gold and Kate Elsworth, and as promised "Eyes Wide Open" made the crowd go wild. At the end of his set, it is safe to say the crowd was left wanting more.
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.
