Most people party on New Years’ before the sun rises, but we are teaming with Nicole Moudaber to bring an experience for the truly ambitious fans who have no qualms about seeing the sun rise. Opening their doors at 4 AM, Nicole will take center stage in Pacha’s main room, and if the last show we were at of hers was any indication, the talented DJ/Producer will deliver the perfect set to start 2014. The extravaganza at Pacha NYC promises welcome grooves after the insanity of Manhattan NYE.

Pacha NYC and RPM’s Pier of Fear returns to Pier 94 this October 25 – 27 and November 1-2. The first event comes at the hands of Steve Aoki’s Aokify America Tour, featuring the Dim Mak label head, Waka Flocka Flame, Borgore and special guest Pharrell Williams. Tickets go on sale Friday at www.pieroffear.com.
Pacha NYC residents, SikDuo take on Bob Sinclar’s “World Hold On” for an official Pacha NYC remix. Capturing summer vibes by blending live guitar play with banging electro drops, Chris Moody and DJ Riz deliver a track designed to cause more than just mayhem on the dancefloor. This feel good and frantic output has seen support from Kaskade at many of his appearances during EDC Week and does well to soundly re-imagine Sinclar’s smash hit.
Steve Angello and RPM have just announced the first official after-party for Electric Daisy Carnival New York. Set to be held on Friday night after the first day of dance music at Citi Field, the afterparty sees Steve performing at Pacha NYC – something he has not done since last summer’s SIZE in the Park after-party. The last time we saw Steve at Pacha he channeled his Mescal Kid persona and delivered a dark and techy set that surprised and delighted many of his longtime fans. With Trent Cantrell’s release debuting on Steve’s newest label X and the buzz of Swedish House Mafia already far in his rearview, expect a unique and sonically diverse set from the SIZE label head.
Governors Island has been one of the premier summer destinations for electronic music events in New York City, but Pacha NYC will be bringing the party to another location all season long. La Marina has been dubbed “New York’s hottest new outdoor venue” and will host DJs on the Hudson River beginning on June 1st with an unveiling from Erick Morillo. Also scheduled to perform at the brand new waterfront venue is Boris (June 22nd), and more announcements for summer 2013 are due to come soon.
On December 28th, Pacha NYC will kick off its 7-year anniversary event with none other than dirty Dutch legend, Laidback Luke. For anyone who was in attendance for Pacha’s incredible 6-year anniversary lineups last year, you already know that this party is not one you should miss.
With more big names sure to be announced, Pacha’s 7-year anniversary series is poised to out do itself yet again. Stay tuned for the rest of the lineups and supporting cast in the coming weeks.

Thanksgiving Eve is the homely cousin of New Year’s Eve, but that hasn’t stopped the city that never sleeps from stepping into bed with her once a year. Rarely one to argue with tradition, and knowing that a 7-hour back-to-back set meant I wouldn’t be leaving Pacha until the sun came up, I spent most of Wednesday evening napping in preparation for the early morning ahead of me.
Legendary DJ/producer Erick Morillo has certainly seen his fair share of Thanksgiving Eves, having shared last year’s affair with Danny Tenaglia. With a career spanning over two decades, Morillo has racked up a series of chart-topping singles, a piece of the Pacha NYC ownership pie, and an eponymously titled street sign, “Erick Morillo Way,” in his hometown. Although Morillo’s successes are being obscured — as is the case for many legends — by the new “electronic pop music” climate, his set with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano reminded me of the emerging failures of a system that privileges serial producers over quality DJs.
