2013 has been a very big year for the very talented Cedric Gervais; not only did he see much success for his collaboration with Bogore on their hit "Deception," but also, the Lana Del Ray vs Cedric Gervais "Summertime Sadness" remix is his biggest hit to date. Back in February, the widely popular tune landed the coveted #1 spot on Beatport, and managed to stay there for an impressive two weeks. Following this, the song saw fantastic air play, climbing international charts. It became the No.1 most added track in the US over the summer, No. 4 on the official UK Charts, No.16 on the American Billboard Charts, and No. 17 on the U.S iTunes chart to name a few. And during all this, the all star DJ kept up with a busy touring schedule, bringing joy to fans worldwide.

We first saw New World Punx opening for Armin van Buuren at their debut arena show: A State Of Trance 600 at Madison Square Garden (listen here). Composed of trance titans Ferry Corsten and Markus Schulz, the duo began collaborating after playing some back-to-back sets at previous shows. When we heard they were on tour, this time as headliners, we leapt at the chance to witness their wizardry once again, this time at the historic (and, unfortunately, soon-to-be-closing) Roseland Ballroom. The show took place this past Saturday, November 23, and featured an incredible four hour set of lush sonic textures, soaring angelic vocals, and hard throbbing beats delivered straight to our eardrums from the power pair.
Cielo has always been a name synonymous in New York with Thursday nights. For quite some time they have featured free cover and open vodka bar from 9-11 on this less popular party night. If you’ve never been there it’s a definitely one to add to your bucket list. More recently, however, Cielo has turned to hosting larger names. The previous Thursday Cielo featured Miss Jennifer, and this past week the intimate setting of the night club went wild for the music of Dragan Roganović, known to his fans by the moniker, Dirty South. In the words of Pete Tong, “Dirty South is Australia’s most successful exporter of EDM.”
