Hakkasan and OMNIA announce ‘monstrous’ line-up for Halloween weekend in Vegas

This post was originally published on this site

Las Vegas can very well be called the USA’s Ibiza, as it consistently brings in the world’s best talent no matter the time of year. However, unlike the rave White Island, the city continues to party all year round with A-list DJs literally flocking in and out of there on a daily basis. The Hakkasan Group have proven themselves as worthy gatekeepers to Las Vegas’ inimitable nightlife time after time with impressive lineups. With a massive, festival-esque benefit show slated for November at OMNIA, Hakkasan has also just announced their extensive line-up for Halloween weekend.

OMNIA will put on its third and final installment of the “Phantom of the Opera” themed trilogy that’s seen massive success over the past two years, featuring performances by Calvin Harris, Zedd, Kaskade and more. If that’s not thrilling enough for the audience, Hakkasan will invite attendees to step “Beyond the Wall” with its second chapter of the medieval themed party, featuring sets by Steve Aoki, Lil Jon, Above & Beyond, and even some tech-house vibes from Hodor himself, Kristian Nairn.

Disciples – Jealousy

This post was originally published on this site

England’s house and deep house production squad, Disciples, is sustaining its momentum from its gold-certified summertime hit “On My Mind” with their newest Warner Music release, “Jealousy.” The trio, made up of Nathan Vincent Duvall, Gavin Koolman, and Luke McDermott, wrote the contagious new track in the same session as their notorious Calvin Harris collaboration, “How Deep Is Your Love,” which currently has more than 1 billion views on YouTube.

“Jealousy” features the well-oiled, sensuous vocals of Disciples’ very own Duvall, as well as a playful female accompaniment. The track’s pumping bassline and addictive hook almost implore the listener to dance off the “jealousy breaking your mind.”
