Being my first House of Yes and Caravan Gitane party, I was pleasantly surprised with how this past Saturday night turned out. I usually don’t stay out past 3:30am in my old age, and I was still moving at 5am. I was prepped with the fact that it’d be in a massive warehouse (awesome) with

All roads lead to Redux? It sure seems that way in New York at least, given anonymous pictures of his visage all over town have been popping up on the web. It’s through mysterious campaigns like this that the dance world came to find out about stops on the Swedish House Mafia reunion tour, and Aphex Twin’s Coachella appearance. Now, what appear to be visual indicators of Kaskade‘s imminent arrival to the Big Apple is stirring a rabid frenzy among fans.
It all makes sense when thinking deeper, at least to followers of the super star’s social media accounts. He’s been hinting at another Redux show for quite some time, and recently began upping his interactions with those pointing out past promises he made to bring the show to the area and even re-posting speculative posts about potential shows in Brooklyn. This of course coincides with the announcement of a third Redux EP on its way.
It’s December 8th and trance legend, Paul Van Dyk, has just released his 9th studio album. That night I arrive to The Great Hall, a space within Avant Gardner, Brooklyn’s newest multi-club venue that has become NYC’s epicenter for dance music over the past year (also home to Brooklyn Mirage and Kings Hall) ready for the
Yes, you read that right. Hit the funky bell folks, we got ourselves a funkalicous groovesational banger! NYC duo Crush Club have just released ‘Trust’, a super groovy dance anthem. ‘Trust’ is out everywhere Friday, November 2nd but we got our hands on this little gem a day early and HAD to share the love.
The legends of electronic music are here to stay, over the past year they have released tons of new music including a full length album and are now still touring all over the country. The boys of The Glitch Mob have gained some serious momentum after staying out of the spotlight for a bit, and
The Funk Lords are headed to NYC for Halloween this year.

French house mastermind, Mercer, has crafted his latest dance-centric concoction in efforts to pay homage to the iconic New York nightclub-turned-Broadway-theater, Studio 54. The club, located in Midtown Manhattan, stood in its heyday as a beacon of the lush ’70s disco epoch that revolutionized the dance music scene at large forever.
“Studio 54” encapsulates this highly hedonistic time period with its sensational, violin-heavy instrumentation and plucky bass loops, accompanied, of course, with the four on the floor time signature which house music and disco notoriously reciprocate. Mercer is known for combining the “old school” with the “new school,” in other words, bringing his knowledge of the French Touch era (the Euro equivalent of disco) in forging his modernized, feel-good “neo-disco” club hits.
Mercer molded an advantageous place for himself in dance music with his decadently dancey sound and auspicious, longtime affiliates, such as Tchami, Malaa, and DJ Snake, with whom he formed the legendary Pardon My French collective in 2015 in the name of advancing the French house emblem.
Swedish superstar Alesso, took to Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in NYC’s storied Central Park in early September to perform his brand new single, “REMEDY.” The performance was equipped not only with full-fledged live instrumentation, but also vocals from the track’s tender-voiced Conor Maynard. A patron of piano since the ripe age of seven, Alesso assumed his position on keyboard at the crest of the prismatic stage setup.
While the track is Alesso’s first release of the year, the artist has kept quite active on the festival front. To follow up his top-notch wrap-up of Electric Zoo‘s 10th anniversary installment (during which “REMEDY” made a notable cameo), his headlining seat at Imagine Festival will serve as the searing crescendo to Alesso’s full-bodied festival season.
