After a triumphant takeover of Governors Island alongside Phazing labelmates Dirty South and Maarcos, Michael Brun is returning to the Big Apple tomorrow night. Now equipped with even more successful releases following the drop of his Gravity EP, Brun has a special night in store for New York’s Pacha dance haven.
Dancing Astronaut, Pacha NYC, and the man of the night himself are giving 10 lucky fans the chance to experience this Friday night affair. Tickets are still available here, but to win a pair to Michael Brun’s NYC reunion as he’ll be joined by Matisse & Sadko, all you have to do is:

Laidback Luke has taken to Facebook to announce that his pre-halloween Super You&Me New York City, which was set to take place this Friday, October 25th, has been canceled due to “recent local events.” Although the promoter, RPM Presents, was initially granted sufficient permits to put on its series of Pier of Fear Halloween parties, the City of New York has since rescinded two of those permits. However, tough times do not necessarily mean that the party must be completely canceled. New York has proven time and again, particularly after this year’s Electric Zoo, its resilience. Luke and his posse will instead put on their October 25th show at Pacha, and while this is far from ideal, his dedication to fans has been reiterated through this unfortunate circumstance.

Past the Guettas and Sinclars of this world, Martin Solveig has been one of the more humorous entities to touch French dance music and its dotted cultural timeline. That isn’t to say, however, that the Smash-orchestrating festival icon hasn’t been hard at work. He’s DJed the MTV Movie Awards, produced for Madonna, balanced crossover hits with landmark house anthems and more recently, managed to return to the White Isle for his residential spot at Pacha Ibiza. In short, Solveig has triumphed the industry and its commercial potential on his own terms – and with very little apology towards the matter. From a man whose legacy started with a steady ascent of the Parisian club circuit, the journey from such European club hits as “C’est La Vie” to radio-friendly triumphs “Hello” and “Hey Now” has been as much about shifting musical culture as it has his re-imagined brand identity. Whilst some have found need to call his crowd-pleasing sets and befitting crossover antics to arms, the general air of relevance surrounding his name has never looked stronger. Dancing Astronaut grilled the tennis-suited maestro on the anatomy of a one-man brand, the spoils of balancing universal prowess and why mustering the masses remains a stroke of musical genius where the globetrotting Frenchman is concerned.

Where underground dance music is concerned, Diynamic boss man Solomun has become a favourite flavor throughout the year. With his Solomun + 1 residency for Pacha already taking the White Isle by storm, the German tastemaker has unveiled the full-breadth of his European tour duties for 2013. Dominated by his fleeting spots in Ibiza at Pacha and Sankeys, festival action for Lovebox Weekender, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and SW4 will be met with consistent club appearances across the continent. Hit more to see the full summer schedule and watch out for Solomun in a town near you. (more…)
With the launch of his “Martin Solveig and Friends” party at Pacha the man in the headband can now be added to the constantly growing list of Ibiza summer residencies. While his productions aren’t strangers to the island, the announcement does mark a milestone for Solveig as his first ever White Isle residency. Solveig will be accompanied by his friends Laidback Luke, Bassjackers, Armand van Helden, Sidney Samson, and Cassius on four dates scheduled throughout July, August, and September. If heavy pounding big room sounds are your cup of tea then Solveig’s night at Pacha might be worth your while.
Between unprecedented leaps and bounds for his global profile and the Ibiza residency to end all summer sprees, you’re unlikely to have heard any less of the name Solomun this year. Kicking off his new residency at Pacha this month, the German heavyweight returns to his own Diynamic imprint with a haunting take on his craft’s more organic ranks. A dark and sombre soundscape of low-end club fuel elevated with an emotively charged twist, the balance of melodic vocals and murky composition found in “YesNoMaybe” makes for another instant win for a man who can seemingly do no wrong as the poster boy to underground house music and its apparent renaissance. Listen to the preview below, this one will be out on Diynamic on June 10th.
As the lastest announcement in this week’s string of Balearic-themed news, Pacha Ibiza and Guy Gerber have announced the details of the residency hinted at in the now quite contentious New York Times article about internal strategy shifts at Pacha this summer. If Pacha lost stars like Erick Morillo, Defected, and Luciano to Cipriani’s new Bomba Ibiza, they’ve gained Guy Gerber. His “Wisdom of the Glove” residency will include magicians, shadow puppeteers, and fortune telling machine and the entire club will “pay sacrifice to a centrifugal glove-shaped force in the shape of a £150,000 single glove.”
Both Gerber and Pacha seem to be riding the recent surging underground dance music wave in order to come up with a club experience that is truly out there. So far, it’s confirmed that Four Tet, Shaun Reeves, Cajmere, Benoit & Sergio, dOP, and Deniz Kurtel will be joining the Israeli DJ for various appearances through the summer season. Just like Bomba Ibiza, Gerber’s residency will begin on May 22nd, right in time for the International Music Summit.
Only days after The New York Times profiled some of the big changes going on in Ibiza this summer (particularly Pacha’s resistance to skyrocketing superstar DJ fees), the Cipriani hospitality group is announcing some exciting new additions to the nightlife landscape on the Balearic Islands this summer. Giuseppe Cipriani, along with former Pacha programming directors Danny Whittle and Mark Netto, will be opening Bomba Ibiza during the week of the International Music Summit on May 22nd.
