If you are one of the many millions still deciding what to do when the clock strikes midnight on January 1st, where to go, how to celebrate and of course more
importantly ‘who with’…then pause for a second and consider this: Avicii will be bringing his Swedish charm to Gotham.
On December 31st, Swedish superstar Avicii will descend upon the heart of New York City to play what will be, without doubt, the most intense farewell to 2011 the Big Apple has to offer.
Rest assured, this won’t be just any Avicii gig…with the production already looking bigger, better and more electrifying than Times Square itself, and as with anything At Night does – jammed full with off-the-wall surprises – this will be a night to truly cherish!
For those of you still wondering about Pacha New York’s “big announcement“, here it is. Not to say that they’ll be hosting, but they’re sure to have a hand in this as it all plays out.
But be warned, celebrating the New Year with Avicii is an intimate and exclusive affair. Tickets will be in limited supply.
Tickets go onsale at 12:00pm EST. Check out the main website here.

“Cameras ready, prepare to flash.” You’ve probably heard those words hundreds of times this year, but for some reason, they never get old. Why? Because they’re followed by one of the most thunderous drops in all of house music. If you haven’t heard the massive Nicky Romero remix to Green Velvet’s “Flash” pounding out of obscenely loud festival speakers, please don’t miss it at Nocturnal. (Not that you’ll probably be able to…)
The big room at Pacha can be an unforgiving place for newcomer DJs. It’s crowd, much like the city it calls home, is a mash of people from all walks of life. E-kiddies, house heads, businessmen, casual clubbers, and even the occasional bachelorette party all funnel into Pacha week after week after week. Sure, there may have been a portion of the crowd that was there to see Fadil El Ghoul, the Dutch producer known as R3HAB, but most of the people we spoke to had never heard of him. All that immediately changed the second that R3HAB descended into the DJ pit that overlooks the big room, cued up his first track, and brought New York’s largest night club to its knees.
After teaming up in 2010 and releasing the electrifying track “Listen To This,” Bart B More and Harvard Bass once again join forces releasing The Ones EP. The EP contains two very different tracks that deliver the utmost gratification, depending on your mood.
“The Funky One” is essentially the “funky” sounding track on the EP. Consisting of just a groovy beat filled with all those “funky” sounds and drums Bart B More is known for, this track is perfect for getting the party started or if your just feeling unconventional. Previous “funky” releases from Bart B More: “Sunstruck,” “We Love,” & “Fuck You.”
As a treat, here’s the official music video:
“The Dark One” is essentially the “dark” sounding track on the EP. Running away with a faster bass kick, a jaw-grinding bass line, and filthy electro synths, “The Dark One” is ideal for reviving the crowd late night or if you feel like running on the treadmill for 15 miles. Previous “dark” releases from Bart B More: “Bodywork,”Traction,” and “Gilles.”
Using several aliases throughout his career (Eric Prydz, Cirez D, Pryda), Eric Prydz has certainly earned himself a reputation for being one of the most dynamic and multifaceted producers in the world. Using his tech-house alias Cirez D, Prydz has r
eleased monumental tracks such as “On and Off,” “Full Stop,” and his supreme track this past summer “Mokba.” Similar to Pryda’s style — Eric Prydz’s progressive house alias, “2Night” genuinely exemplifies his knack of diversity, as well as his tremendous production skills. Offering a piano lead as paramount and pleasing to the ear as Prydz’s masterpiece “Pjanoo,” “2Night” will without a doubt not only become an addiction to house music fans globally, but also to the DJs who continuously and deliberately include it in their sets.
Best known for his (now old-school) hit “Put Your Hands Up for Detroit,” Fedde was busy cooking up bangers in the lab while some of today’s household names were probably still in high school (Porter Robinson, anyone?)
Do yourself a favor and check out his late-night set at this year’s Nocturnal Wonderland festival.
Sander Van Doorn combines forces with Adrian Lux to create a melodic, sensual, and emotional progressive tune called “Eagles”. If you were unsure whether or not to purchase Sander’s latest album Eleve11, give this one a go and your decision will be made. You can tell throughout the track that a very happy medium was found between Adrian’s mellow progressive style (think: “Teenage Crime” and “Boy“) and Sander’s harder ‘trouse’ productions. If you are about getting straight to the point, fast foward to approximately 1:30 and let the magic begin!
