September has been jam-packed with shows and if you want to end it with one last hurrah, consider checking out Feed Me tonight at Pacha NYC. For those unfamiliar, Feed Me is one of the stage names for Jon Gooch, a British dubstep and electro house producer and DJ. His Feed Me project has gained widespread notoriety worldwide since its early beginnings on Deadmau5′s label, Mau5trap, in 2008. Doors open at 10PM; RSVP to Pacha’s guest list for free entry before midnight.
We’ve come to expect a certain kind of sound when it comes to Nervo tracks, but their latest collaboration with Norman Doray is something refreshingly different. “Something To Believe In” doesn’t have the girls on vocals, but instead brings in Cookie for a soulful, anthemic topline. The video is shot at Neptunes Beach Club in the Hamptons and at Pacha NYC, showcasing an atypical — but enviable — lifestyle that admittedly looks pretty awesome. The track itself has old school disco vibes and feels like a very big tune. As the summer music season comes to a close, releases like this have us excited for fall.
As if going head to head with Sensation USA on Saturday of Halloween weekend with All Mixed Up wasn’t enough, Pacha has added another show at Pier 94 to compete with night one of Brooklyn’s biggest white party on Friday, October 26th. The second show will have a bass-heavy lineup featuring Knife Party, Tommy Trash, Kill the Noise, Style of Eye, Baauer, and Destructo. Doors open at 10PM, so we assume that the party will be continuing until sunrise. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, September 13th, and we’ll update this post with purchase information when we have it. In the meantime, feel free to reconsider dropping close to $200 on Sensation tickets from Stubhub.
ters, Governors Island, August 20, 2011 (review)” href=”http://www.dancingastronaut.com/2011/08/steve-angello-at-size-matters-governors-island-august-20-2011-review/”>Steve Angello on New York’s Governors Island
as part of the Size Matters squad. Well, this year he returned to the island along with a new crew, new label, and new material — and this time around, he was the star of the show. Actually, he was the star of two shows, having played at Pacha NYC the night before.
Safe to say that New York was poised to receive two very special shows from one of the most exciting DJs — and most versatile producers — in the game. He delivered, in a big way.
Though the summer is unfortunately drawing to a close, the parties and club events show no sign of slowing down. This Friday, August 17th, up-and-coming New York DJ/producer Paige will make his headlining Pacha debut — and if you haven’t yet heard his name yet, you can expect that to change over the next year. He has already played gigs at Governors Island and even EDC New York, so he is bringing along some friends to make his big Pacha NYC evening even more special: Deborah Cox will deliver live vocals from her upcoming track with Paige, “Higher,” (and a special rendition of “Leave The World Behind”), while Nari and Milani will bring their special blend of electro house to bring an edgier vibe. If you’re around New York this weekend and looking to experience a new type of progressive house show, head over to Pacha NYC on Friday. We doubt you’ll regret the decision.
It’s no secret that we at Dancing Astronaut are big fans of the German mega-DJ Thomas Gold, and we are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting his return to the one and only Pacha NYC this Saturday, August 11th. Of course, we want our readers to party in style, so one grand prize winner will win a VIP table for four people with a complimentary bottle of champagne — or energy drinks for the under 21 crowd. As if that wasn’t good enough, it will also come with a Pacha gift bag filled with various kinds of merch (and you just might find some DA gear in there as well).
Even if you aren’t lucky enough to take home the grand prize, we have also secured a guest list to give everyone the chance to see one of the most entertaining DJs out there at one of New York’s best clubs. Anyone 21+ will receive $10 admission before midnight, and 19-20 will have reduced cover. To put yourself on the list, go here, and don’t forget to say Dancing Astronaut at the guest list door.
Update: Tim Mason has been added as support for Saturday night’s festivities. Get your entries in!
Though it took until the week of to sell out, expectations ran alarmingly high for Eric Prydz’ return to New York City. On the day of the show, nearly every dance music enthusiast without tickets was clamoring for a last minute chance to see the one and only Pryda.
While there was no shortage of hype for the show, there was a shortage of space at the venue, Beekman Beach Club, which filled up quickly and felt at or near-capacity by midnight. If you did your homework, this wouldn’t have been a surprise; Beekman has had its fair share of misfortunes this summer. Unfortunately for excited Pryda fans in New York City, the night did not exactly go according to plan.
You may have heard that Thomas Gold will be returning to New York’s Governors Island this August, but what you haven’t heard is that you have a chance to win a trip to the show courtesy of the man himself. A new contest on Thomas’ website will send one lucky winner and a friend to either his Governors Island show on August 12th, another pair to his show at Pacha Ibiza on the 24th with Axwell and Pete Tong. The winner will receive flights, accommodations, and entry for two people, while all entrants will receive a free five-minute mini mix of Thomas’ Axtone Presents Thomas Gold compilation as a consolation prize.
July 7th was the hottest day New York City has seen this summer with temperatures flirting above 100-degrees. It was also Alessandro Lindblad’s 21st birthday, and in the dance music world, that meant one thing — a monster celebration. Last summer, Alesso joined his mentor Sebastian Ingrosso at Pacha NYC to play an unidentified track that would become “Calling.” This summer, he took another leap towards maturation — both as an artist, and as an adult — selling out New York’s greatest summer venue and throwing the birthday party of the year.
Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano seem to always have two things on hand during their performances: energy and dance-ready beats. Friday at Pacha was no exception. Unlike the increasingly stale sets of late, I was able to enjoy an evening of lesser-known tracks – a given in most SJ+RM events. The set was refreshing but familiar, employing a mix of new tracks and familiar favorites that worked the Pacha crowd. At no point during the performance did I find myself rolling my eyes and wishing for the next transition. Instead I was able to spend most of my time wondering what they were playing, a feeling I’ve begun to miss more and more. So, here are five tracks you need to know.
