With an Ultra Music Festival performance and Vegas residency already under her belt, the only thing missing from Bambi’s career has been studio output. Now remedying that situation with a release on Calvin Harris’ Fly Eye Records, the DJ has reverted to her given name of Eva Shaw. Entitled “Charizma,” her debut track takes on the feel of muted electro buffered by glossy synths but bolstered with a festival-ready countdown. Though a mid-track tempo change drops out to the point of a false ending, the progressive tune, like Shaw’s career, is in fact just getting started.
After a day spent barbecuing and celebrating in backyards across the US, the morning after July 4th is always one defined by bad sunburns and worse hangovers. Thankfully the beautiful Eva Shaw, better known as Bambi, lends her talents to our 64th edition of Axis. Just like kicking the dog that bit you, Bambi’s mix doesn’t try to nurse you back to normalcy. Instead she kicks you out of bed, puts a beer in your hand and reminds you that the holiday weekend has just begun – so quit being so soft. Don’t let her looks deceive you, the talented DJ works through 16 of big room and electro’s most unrelenting tracks from her own bootleg of Blasterjaxx & Billy the Kit’s “Loud & Proud” to Flosstradamus & DJ Slink’s “Crown Ctrl.” Press play to shake off the mid-morning haze and hop past the break to see the Bambi’s full tracklist.

Like any native of New Jersey, much of my younger 20s were spent stumbling through the neon lit and awkwardly carpeted atriums of Atlantic City’s dated casinos. In terms of luxury and elegance there wasn’t much to look forward to along the Jersey coastline. Debauchery? yes, luxury? hell no. When news of Revel’s development began, our eyes once again looked towards the Jersey coast. Their mission was bold – make Atlantic City a destination for more than just geriatrics on slot machines. It’s aim was to bring all of the luxury and grandeur of Vegas’s preeminent hotels to the North East, giving the residents of New Jersey and New York a Vegas of their own. The second we set foot inside the world class establishment last summer for Avicii’s performance at Ovation Hall, there was no question — they had succeeded.
