Dutch festival favorites Bingo Players have been crisscrossing North America, bringing their epic Rattle and Roll tour to the big-room hungry masses. Many of the shows have sold out, so if you were left on the outside looking in, Maarten and Paul have delivered the next best thing to a concert ticket: The entirety of the tour’s Roseland Ballroom takeover is now available for your viewing pleasure. The NYC stop marked the act’s largest headlining show in North America, and fans seemed just as thrilled about experiencing the duo’s new live experience as the Players were about unveiling it. Sit back and enjoy the arcing lasers, dynamic builds and dramatic drops from the comfort of your chair – chances are you won’t be sitting for long.Posted by

Cedric Gervais, R3hab, Sander van Doorn, Showtek, and Tommy Trash will be ringing in the New York New Year, bringing a scheduled eight hours of music to the Lower East Side.

When I found out Boys Noize had two upcoming shows in New York at Output, I deliberated whether or not to review his show again. I had already wrote about Boys Noize’s performance at Electric Zoo this year, and with his performance looming at HARD Event’s Day of the Dead festival in less than two weeks, another set review seemed overkill. I debated which days to go, and decided to ask around.
“You need to come both nights,” his camp told me. “These are going to be two different shows.”
That spooked me. When an artist is scheduled to play two shows at the same venue, you rarely get two transcendent performances. Eric Prydz’s masterpiece the week before was an anomaly. The feat is painfully tough from the artist’s point of view. How do you reconcile people that are only seeing you one night with those here to see you both nights? The second set has to be just as impressive as the first one, possibly even more. Yet you cannot hold back during the first night and disappoint. Boys Noize did just that. (more…)Posted by
Halloween weekend is only a few days away and while you all scramble for last minute costume ideas for the countless parties you’ll be attending from Friday to Wednesday, we’ve taken our time to compile a list of the best events that the US has to offer. For those in the New York area looking to leave the city for their ghoulish weekend, Atlantic City’s HQ nightclub has a handful of events at New Jersey’s own slice of Vegas, including a sexiest outfit contest presented by Zen Freeman. If you choose to stay in the city that never sleeps, make sure to check out what Girls & Boys are cooking up at Webster Hall and Slake or ditch the orange and black for Sensation’s Ocean of White. As always, Las Vegas is bursting at the seams with events, including the stand out late night performance by none other than Richie Hawtin at Marquee Nightclub — but don’t miss DJMag’s #1 DJ in the World, Hardwell, at Hakkasan. Los Angeles boasts its fair share of events as well serving up a sex-fueled Halloween night with Art Department at Sound Nightclub while San Francisco’s Ruby Skye has four nights of the Freak Circus party brand. Choosing an event in Miami is easier said than done with Cedric Gervais’s Halloween Sh!t Show at LIV and Dimiri Vegas and Like Mike at Mansion throughout the weekend but that’s why you need more than one Halloween costume.
Hop past the break to see all of the events in your area.

What do we know about Nicolas Jaar? He was born in New York, lived in Chile, studied comparative literature at Brown, he’s the label owner of Clown & Sunset and, oh yeah, he won Radio 1′s Essential Mix of the Year in 2012. While he’s earned recognition in Europe for his masterful album and famed performance from Barcelona’s Sonar Festival, the American music scene is slowly catching on.
The Red Bull Music Academy hosted Jaar and his Clown & Sunset label two months back for Jaar’s Boiler Room debut, and the results were stunning. Jaar’s headlining set included tantalizing deep house and minimal, while he creatively tinkered around with a MIDI controller and stereo radio. Watch the 45 minute set above.Posted by

Last weekend, Pacha NYC played host to world-renowned French DJ/ Producer Martin Solveig and up-and-coming wonder kid, Danny Avila. Hundreds of fans gathered at the packed New York City club to see a show that would be sure to keep energy high through the early morning hours. Having reviewed Martin Solveig at Electric Zoo Festival in September, I was very excited to see him return to the Big Apple for a more intimate show at Pacha. Danny Avila has exploded onto the dance music scene in 2012 — having caught the eye of Tiesto, Solveig, and many other dance music legends. It is clear that his talents have not gone unnoticed in the industry.
