This Wednesday, November 14, Pacha NYC is doing something that no organization has ever done before – RPM & Pacha NYC are both proud to announce that they will be hosting a benefit for the victims of hurricane Sandy, called Help Heal New York. Since hurricane Sandy hit the tri-state area, Pacha NYC has been doing everything they can to help this great city, and for every event they have hosted over the last few weeks if you brought canned goods, you were allowed in for free or at least reduced admission to the event. Pacha NYC is doing the unthinkable because 100% of the proceeds from this event will be going to the Red Cross and other local charities – 100% meaning all of the profits and other money made at this event, from coat check tips to DJ fees will be donated to help fix the damages and the victims who were effected by this awful tragedy.
This benefit is more like a festival then an event because there are over 50 international and local DJs that will be performing over the course of the evening, Read more →
As if Saturday, September 22nd wasn’t a big enough day for the Electronic Dance Music scene in New York City, Pacha made sure to end the historical day off right, having an all out afterhours affair hosted by who other then the Size Matters family. Pacha, as always, made sure they brought in the hottest names in the industry, which included Third Party’s debut not only at Pacha, but their debut in New York City all together, as well as a very familiar face in the Pacha NYC booth, Junior Sanchez. Then finally, the headlining performance of the night, who makes up one-third of the world famous Swedish House Mafia and owns Size Records, Steve Angello.
Third Party set the tone for the night making sure the crowd was fully involved and jamming out through their entire performance. Their set included some of their fan’s favorite remixes including their remix of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, “Otherside” as well as their remix of Sultan & Ned Shepard’s, “Somebody to Love”. Third Party was sure to play their original work with “Cicada”, which many people argue is their claim to fame, Feel, and even played a sick mash-up of Hard Rock Sofa’s remix to Marco V’s, “Analogital” with the vocals of Deadmau5’s, “Raise Your Weapon”. They made heads spin after playing another mash-up of Nari and Milani’s, “Atom” with a throwback track of the Beastie Boys named, “Don’t Sleep Till Brooklyn”, which brought an unreal amount of energy among everyone in attendance at 618 West 46th Street.
As Third Party’s set came to a close and Junior Sanchez took control of the wild party, more and more fans packed out the dance floor until it was basically impossible to move. Sanchez kept the party going, but really set the crowd off after dropping Congorock’s track, Ivory
Angello made his presents known for the people in the New York and New Jersey area, playing a show in the middle of Manhattan at Central Park, before making his way to the Pacha sponsored venue in New Jersey known as 466, just before making his way back to the city to play his third and final set for the evening at Pacha NYC.
Finally, at about 1:50am, Steve Angello appeared in the booth, greeting Junior Sanchez with a huge hug just before addressing the sea of people that made up the crowd at Pacha. He let everyone know that he intended on having an all out after party, which meant he could only play those deep and dirty afterhours beats, and until 4:30/5 o’clock in the morning he did just that, playing all base bumping tech house tracks. The Swede mixed together a hard hitting set which included Stefano Noferini’s, Fact and Tujamo & Plastik Funk’s banger, “WHO”. Angello showed everyone why he is one of, if not the top name in Dance music, because at no point in his set did he use headphones, yet each transition from track to track was absolutely flawless.
Then around 5am a couple of special Size Records guests appeared in the booth including the other Angello some of us know better as AN21 along with Max Vangeli to show Steve some love and join the party festivities. It was the that Steve Angello went off, playing all of his hits including his famous original production, “Knas” as well as his edit of the mash-up between Nari and Milani’s, “Atom” with the lyrics of Swedish House Mafia’s, “Leave the World Behind”. From there he played Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso’s, “Calling” and of course Swedish House Mafia’s, “Greyhound”.
Steve Angello made sure that Saturday night was one that will never be forgotten staying on the deck’s until after 6:30 in the morning. He played a set at Pacha that will never be forgotten and proved to everyone who saw him either at Central Park, 466, and/or Pacha that he is truly one of the best and top DJs in the world.
This past Saturday I had the pleasure of witnessing two legends in the Tech House and Techno genre. Being pioneers of their craft, both Pleasurekraft and Danny T know how to throw it down and have been some of the biggest influences in EDM. Governors Island has been a hot spot for the summer of EDM and is one of the most recognizable venues recently attended. The magnificent view of the New York City skyline was the perfect backdrop for an epic night of dark beats.
Pleasurekraft is best known for his versatility and abstract sounds used in his Tech House anthems. This new track featuring Green Velvet is one of the most odd and interesting Tech tracks I’ve ever heard consisting of a deep rolling bassline and strong percussion. As the track progressing you hear catchy vocals come in that all lead into an electro drop, yup you heard it right, electro. Listen for yourselves and let us know what you think. Enjoy!
When I first heard Plastik Funk’s “Who” live I instantly fell in love with the simple yet complex track that keeps you bopping your head consistently. This mash up with the classic Bingo Players track “When I Dip” mixes perfectly with “Who” and adds some extra energy and flavor to a rather minimal track. Enjoy!
