THE SUPERSTAR LINEUP OF: SUNNERY JAMES, RYAN MARCIANO, THIRD PARTY, & JAZ VON D GET SET TO TAKE THE DECKS AT PACHA NYC
Next Friday, April 26th Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano will return back in the booth at Pacha NYC, but they won’t be alone. Third Party of the Size Matters record label as well as Jaz von D will accompany Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano as they return to the big apple.
Third Party knows how to get the party started, which we all saw last September when they made their first ever appearance at Pacha NYC, as they supported Steve Angello’s, Size At The Park, afterhours party at Pacha NYC. This will be one of the final stops on Third Party’s month long, Otherside North American Tour. The duo that is Third Party made a name for themselves in house music by collaborating with Steve Angello to make the track, Lights, although they are probably best known for their powerful single, Feel.
Jaz von D is a going to be a name you will hear a lot this upcoming year, and although he has been quiet while producing bangers such as Reload and Dinosaur, he is finally getting the exposure he deserves. Jaz von D has a sound that is similar to Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano’s, and plays a lot of sexy beats which give off those feel good, Latin vibes. Jaz von D recently collaborated with Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano in releasing the track, Firefaces, a happy tune that gets everyone on their feet and dancing.
SUNNERY JAMES, RYAN MARCIANO, & JAZ VON D – FIREFACES (ENERGY ANTHEM 2013)
Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano have the tendency to host some of the most epic parties ever held at Pacha NYC – and with the energy they bring it is easy to see why they headline on main stage at every elite music festival. The duo has been spending some serious hours in the studio collaborating with artists such as Jaz von D and Chocolate Puma, and are definitely going to destroy Pacha NYC, which is a given when they come to town.
This is going to be a night for the ages, so don’t miss your chance to catch this unbelievable lineup while you can. You can get your tickets here, act now while you can because if you wait this event will be sure to sell out!
Pacha NYC seems to be the topic of conversation all throughout the tri-state area as the one and only Loco Dice gets set to make his return back to the city that never sleeps. Early last June Loco Dice threw down one of the most serious sets of the year as he hosted the Official Dekalb Market Afterparty.
Loco Dice has a fan base like no other producer or DJ in the industry because he is so well rounded musically, and whether it be rap, hip hop, or electronic music he does it all. Believe it or not, this German born music phenomenon, began his career as a rapper and hip-hop DJ. He did not go unnoticed in that scene either, and supported some of the biggest artists in hip-hop including acts such as: Usher, Ice Cube, R. Kelly, and Snoop Dogg. Loco Dice is as unique as they come, combining elements of the hip-hop music genre with the elements of electronic music genre and making it work!
Pacha is going to be the place to be come this Friday, so get tickets while you still can here. Loco Dice’s uncharacteristic style is unlike any other producer and DJ in house music so don’t wait or you could miss out on a rare opportunity to see what all the hype is about!
GrooveFox Announces Monthly Residencies and Contest for the final Residency Spot!
This past Saturday Fedde le Grand’s On the Road to Ultra: A Long Way From Home North American Club Tour made its way to the big apple to put on a show at no other then the world famous Pacha NYC. Fans from everywhere flock to wherever Fedde is playing when he makes his way to New York, and this show was no different. Even before he took the decks the sold out club was packed from wall to wall, filled with fans who were highly anticipating his return back to New York City after his performance with Pete Tong this past December, which kicked off the first of seven Pacha anniversary parties.
When Fedde le Grand appeared in the booth around 1 o’clock the crowd went wild, anyone who wasn’t videoing Fedde’s introduction was going crazy as he dropped banger after banger after banger. Fedde le Grand’s set included tracks such as Sebastian Ingrosso and Tommy Trash’s, Reload, John Dahlback’s, Comet, as well as Nicky Romero’s, Still The Same Man. As always Fedde brought the energy playing an epic set which lasted over three hours! Fedde of course, also incorporated his own productions, which includes tracks like So Much Love, Raw, Praise You, Metrum, and of course his latest remix, which was released on Beatport earlier last week, Glowing.
NIKKI WILLIAMS – GLOWING (FEDDE LE GRAND REMIX)
At the end of Fedde’s performance at around 4 o’clock, none other then Sultan and Ned Shepard took the decks as they made their Pacha NYC debut in front of a sell out crowd. Sultan and Ned Shepard brought the heat as well, and kept the crowd rocking until sunrise. Their set included tracks such as Quintino and Sando Silva’s, Epic, Scott Sparks and Jewelz’s, Toxic Rush, as well as some of their own productions including, Walls, American Flash, and Army.
With the help of Sultan and Ned Shepard, Fedde le Grand threw down two crazy sets and had the crowd rocking until the sun literally rose. It was an epic night to say the least. You can keep up to date with both Fedde le Grand and Sultan and Ned Shepard’s tour by going onto their Facebook page, and if you are unable to catch them at any of the North American club tour shows, you can definitely catch them at Ultra Music Festival right on the main stage.
The Canadian duo of Sultan & Ned Shepard have been on a roll in 2012. They claimed a residency spot at XS Las Vegas and put out a number of tracks such as “Somebody To Love” and “Walls”. Also putting out remixes to “Closer”, “Time” and “We Are Young. Their brand new track “Ordinary People” to kick off 2013 is a great start with that huge big room sound and the soothing vocals by Max’C take over the track to perfect it. We are excited to see what they have in store for the new year!
Ever since the madness that was displayed on the closing day of Electric Daisy Carnival New York with their very own Jacked Stage and Afrojack closing out the festival, New York has been waiting for another Jacked event to come around again. When the announcement came out about Jacked NYE I knew it was something that couldn’t be missed. Afrojack absolutely killed in 2012 and bringing along his team of Quintino, Shermanology, R3hab and Bobby Burns to play in the massive space of Pier 94 this was only the making of a New Years show for the history books.
We arrived to Pier 94 at around 10 o’clock just as the sounds of Tommie Sunshine were hitting the speakers and starting of the night just right. The first track that I walked into him dropping was a awesome mash up of TJD “Ode To Oi” mashed with ACDC “Dynamite” which went together perfect and could not have went any harder. Being in NYC we knew this could not have been a show without someone dropping Firebeatz “Dear New York” to set off the crowd. For my first time seeing Mr. Sunshine live I was totally impressed and he killed it to open up the night! Tommie ended around 11:55 to bring in the New Year and let Afrojack Start off 2013 with his intro version of “Bangduck” to start off what would be a wild night. Afrojack tore up the first hour dropping bombs like his own “Annies Theme” “Rocker” and his new “Gangnam Style Remix“. The Jacked leader also dropped hits like “Who” by Plastik Funk & Tujamo, “Atom” by Nari & Milani and “Next Order” By Skrillex & Boyz Noize. Afrojack killed it for the first hour of 2013 and was not leaving because it was time to bring out the next member of Jacked and play back to back all night with each member of the team!
The next member of Jacked to hit the stage was none other then the “Epic” man himself Quintino. I have seen Quintino play twice before this, the first being at EDCNY and then again at Lit Ultrabar in Philly, he is one of my favorites so I was very excited to see him kill it once again. Opening with his and R3habs remix to Tiestos “Chasing Summers” Quintino was about to blow Pier 94 to the next level with Afrojack back to back. Together they rocked pier dropping tracks such as Afros “Take Over Control”, Quintinos Remix of “Bad Girls“, “Trigger” by W&W and Marcel Woods and MOTI mashup of Kid Cudi “Pursuit of Happiness” and Nicky Romeros “WTF“. Out of all the bangers that they dropped nothing compared to the way “Epic” set this place off. It was like it turned 12 o’oclock at New Years for the second time that night when it dropped at Pier and it was only going to get crazier from here on.
At around 2am after Quintino threw down a wild set with Afrojack, it was time for the sounds of Shermanology to grace us all. I was looking extremely forward to seeing Shermanology having missed them at EDCNY but I love the fact that they DJ and do live vocals as well. They came out hard and heavy hitting us with tracks such as “Cannonball” by Showtek, “Million Atoms to Apologize” Hardwell vs Thomas Gold Edit, and one of my personal favorite tracks “Respeki Di Women” by SkitzoFenix. They also performed live vocals when dropping tracks like “Blessed” that they did with Avicii and “Titanium” by David Guetta. This night was so far unforgettable but what would be a set with Afrojack and Shermanology without dropping and singing their vocals live to there number 1 hit “Cant Stop Me“. Pier 94 was being rocked by the sounds of the Jacked crew and still had 2 more members to hit the stage to kill it and keep the music going strong.
At around 3am it was time for Bobby Burns to come hit us all with some of those Jacked beats we all love. Ever since seeing him live at EDCNY I thought Bobby Burns plays a absolute great set with a unique list of tracks so I was excited for him to get in to the booth. With Afrojack still on stage going back to back with all these artists it could not have been a better intro for Bobby Burns with him and Afro opening with their hit and one of my personal favorites “GhettoBlaster“. Bobby also dropped tracks like his original track “Next” and his and Afrojacks ” Real High“. The one part of Bobbys set that I loved was hearing his new track “MontBlanc” this track heavily supported by Tiesto and is set to release January 21st and sure to be a missive hit. It was starting to get late but it was not even close to end the night.
At around 4am we all knew it was time to check ourselves in to R3HAB. As late as it was getting nobody in pier was getting tired. The sounds of “Sending My Love” hit the speakers and we all knew it was time! The Vocals of that went straight into the new hard hitting track by R3hab and ZROQ “Skydrop” which set off pier 94 into a frenzy. He kept the madness going by dropping Swedish House Mafias “Antidote” and “Miami 2 Ibiza“, Zedds “Shotgun“, and Knife Partys “Rage Valley“. R3hab also dropped his own tracks such as his remix to Calvin Harris “Bounce” and “Well Be Coming Back” and also his track with Shermanology “Living For The City“. R3hab kept us rocking until 5am when Bobby Burns hit the stage again to close out the massive New Yeats Eve Show.
Bringing in the new year with the Jacked crew was a moment like no other. They had a crowd of over 10,000 singing and dancing for eight hours strong with no stopping. 2012 was a huge year for Afrojack and his Jacked crew and who only knows what 2013 has in store for them. All we can say is that we hope its going to be a bigger year then this one which means its going to be a massive year in 2013! We would like to thank Afrojack, Quintino, R3hab, Shermanology and Bobby Burns for such an eventful night to welcome in the new year!
If you were unable to make it to the sold out Jack3d show at Pier 94 on New Years Eve, you’re in for a treat with these live sets from Tommie Sunshine, Afrojack, and more!
