Jeremy Olander is not your average electronic music artist. He stands tall with a rugged demeanor, ponytail gathered behind his head as to not disrupt him during his carefully crafted DJ sets. Under his real name he produces an authentic brand of progressive house, releasing numerous hits on Pryda Friends. Under his Dhillon techno moniker, he’s already cemented releases on Adam Beyer’s acclaimed Drumcode. On Saturday night, while thousands descended upon Miami for Ultra Music Festival and its surrounding parties, a saddened group of non-attendees found their audible fix during Olander’s set at New York nightclub Santos Party House.
Dancing Astronaut has, once again, teamed up with Santos Party House to host one of the hottest Electric Beach parties to kick off February. On Saturday, February 2nd, Fehrplay will be taking to the deck in New York City for the first time since he opened Eric Prydz’s two sold-out shows at Roseland Ballroom back in November. This time headlining his own show in the US for the first time, we want to give one lucky reader and 4 friends the chance to see this up-and-comer from the comfort of their own VIP table!

Last Saturday at Santos Party House, the Electric Beach party brand brought together two of dance music’s most buzzed about stars. Pierce Fulton and Audien, who barely look old enough to step foot in a nightclub, were bound to provide a stellar soundtrack for their adoring fans. On my way to Santos, whilst perusing through my Twitter feed, I noticed Pierce mentioned this would be his first ever back-to-back set. Both of these artists have genre-bending styles and don’t particularly subscribe to labels in the traditional sense, so in that regard I was anxious to see what the night would hold. Would Audien play euphoric trance or gritty electro? Would Pierce bust out some deep house? Maybe even something experimental? (more…)Posted by

Electric Beach — Santos Party House’s Saturday night event — celebrated its first birthday last weekend with a party fit for the milestone. The clubs weekly dance music event has seen talent like EDX, Funkagenda, and New York local dBerrie, but appropriately pulled out their biggest guns yet for the occasion — Mat Zo. Serving as the evenings musical officiator, he successfully captured the audience with a diverse set of classic tunes, current hits, and unidentifiable tracks. The set flowed, but without feeling weighed down by a boring formula. While there wasn’t a real cake, attendees ate up his set with the enthusiasm of first graders devouring frosted carbs. Z0 however, was more forgiving on the waistline.
Mat Zo is making his New York nightclub debut next Saturday, October 6th, at Santos Party House. The party is a one year celebration of the Electric Beach Party at Santos, and will be a nice departure from the typical progressive stylings of the club. We’ve seen artists like Tristan Garner and Pierce Fulton there in the past. If you’re unfamiliar with Mat Zo, his upbeat fusion of trance and house is similar to Arty’s, and he has found a home on Above and Beyond’s Anjunabeats label. Tickets for the event are on sale now, and it is expected to sell out. Keep reading for one of our favorite Mat Zo mashups.
Hailing from the homeland of Daft Punk, Tristan Garner will be spinning in NYC this Saturday at Santos Party House courtesy of Electro Beach. Dancing Astronaut has, once again, teamed up with the Santos crew to deliver a night to be remembered. One lucky winner will receive free entry, a bottle, and a table – for himself/herself and 4 (four) equally lucky friends. And unlike most other giveaways of this kind, you won’t have to pay any gratuity either. (Note: DA does not condone being a cheapskate. You’re getting a great deal, so tip your server.) Entrants must be 21+.
We’ve just received the flyer you see above teasing a secret show from Dirty South tonight in New York. We can reveal to you that the party will be going down at Santos Party House — a venue we’ve been to before — from 8PM – 12AM. We’ve heard it’s a small show being held in the basement of Santos, and that there will be no cover but extremely limited access. Your best bet is to email the address above or show up early. We saw him at Ultra this weekend and let’s just say he’s in a zone right now.Posted by
