After one of the most memorable nights of the year at the Pier of Fear at Pier 94, Otto Knows made his return to the city that never sleeps, to host a party that would be talked about until the next time he made his way back to the New York City area. Otto Knows always brings an amazing turn out of people because it is almost as if everybody knows of the young Sweedes original songs and remixes.
When Otto Knows took the decks, everyone in attendance flooded the dance floor, and the flashes of everyone’s phones lit up the main floor as they began videoing the phenomenal introduction of his very own smash remix of Dada Life’s, Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker with the lyrics from Robin S’s, Show Me Love, which set an energy filled tone for the night, and when the beat dropped there was not a single person in the club not dancing their heart out, which continued all night long. Otto Knows kept everyone happy, dancing, and singing by playing tracks like Gregor Salto’s, Azumba, Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso’s, Calling, Swedish House Mafia’s, Don’t You Worry Child, Zedd’s, Spectrum, and a mash up of Tujamo & Plastik Funk’s, WHO with Daft Punk’s, Technologic. The song selection Otto Knows chose was so widely spread across the many sub-genres of electronic dance music. His set also included John Dahlback’s, Comet, Avicii and Nicky Romero’s hit, Nicktim, as well as both of his original tracks, Lies and Million Voices. Otto Knows closed his set with an epic bootleg mix of Swedish House Mafia’s, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall with Porter Robinson’s, Language, into the original version of Swedish House Mafia’s, Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall.
At the conclusion of Otto Know’s set, Kastra made his Pacha debut downstairs. The rising star out of Monmouth County, New Jersey, played an unbelievable set including songs such as Tommy Trash’s, Truffle Pig and the Starkiller’s remix of Deadmau5 & Melleefresh’s, Hey Baby.

This Saturday, house music artist(s) LA Riots we be throwing down in SOHO at Santos Party House’s, Electric Beach Party. Santos has been doing it bigger and bigger as time goes on and at this point the people expect nothing less from this SOHO spot. Santos has really made a name for itself in New York City nightlife, through the huge names in house music they continue to bring in every Saturday.
In 2007 Daniel Linton and John O’Brien formed the group formally known as the LA Riots, who brought a type of music that was unheard of, to the table. Their original musical productions were a blend of indie rock music with alternative dance & electro music. Linton and O’Brien chose the name the LA Riots on the 15th anniversary of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, because they said that their name was supposed to be a reflection of their aggressive and rebellious sound. In 2012 Daniel Linton is the one and only member of the LA Riots. Linton reinvented the sound of the LA Riots to a techno/house mixed with a drum n’ bass sound that he knew his fans would love. Linton has been supported by some of the biggest artists in the game including, artists like Tiesto and Laidback Luke. The LA Riots have been signed by electronic dance music icon, A Trak, and are a part of the Fools Gold Records family.
Santos is going to be the place to be this Saturday, so be sure to get your tickets here. A portion of the proceeds from the Electric Beach Party will be donated to help hurricane sandy recovery efforts in New York City.
As the weekend before Halloween rapidly approaches, a couple of artists that make up the Refune Records family, have decided to mix up the entire state of New York. The three Swedish DJ’s, Sebastian Ingrosso, Alesso, and Otto Knows will be hosting this two part, one-night extravaganza 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.
Alesso is now a household name in the world of EDM after only bursting onto the scene a short year ago. Building his way up with his amazing remixes of Alex Kenji and Nadia Ali’s “Pressure” and Dúne’s “Heiress of Valentina.” Now he has officially begun the takeover process with anthems like “Calling” and “Raise Your Head,” and he only has more to give us. Alessandro Linblad(Alesso) can now add to his list of accomplishments with his first ever BBC Radio1 Essential Mix hosted by the legend Pete Tong.
