Earlier, we labeled Ludovika as our “new artist to watch.” Since that time period the youngster has headlined XS Las Vegas and created a few more bootlegs and original tracks for us to enjoy. He has recently come out with a summer warm up mix that is a half an hour of pure progressive power. Make sure to keep your ears peeled at approximately 8:56 for his newest tune (currently labeled as “ID’), it’s a blend of high pitched synths (a la Avicii), a deep yet soothing bassline (can you say Thomas Gold?), and a hell of a drop (a little Nicky Romero with a dash of Hardwell). As always, we’ll keep you posted on the latest and greatest from Ludovika — tell us what you think of the new tune in the comments below.
As the countdown to Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas crosses the 2-week mark, fans are rounding up their groups of friends in preparation for what could be the single biggest party of the year. Last year’s event was an enormous success on many levels, and this year’s edition is poised to reach even greater heights.
While the festival itself runs 3 nights from Friday June 8th to Sunday June 10th, a dizzying selection of EDM artists will be playing daytime and nighttime parties all over Las Vegas during the Insomniac-sponsored “EDC Week”. So if you and your friends need some help in staying organized and making sure you don’t miss out, click past the break for a full calendar of EDC Week events and planning resources: (more…)Posted by
Afrojack and Shermanology have released a video for their collaboration, “Can’t Stop Me.” The video follows the crew from an undisclosed location to the Afrojet straight to Las Vegas, where they do unspeakable things to XS Las Vegas. There’s footage from the studio, in addition to some additional verses from Andy, one third of Shermanology. The video cuts down the exceedingly long pause that was present in the original mix of the track, and instead puts the vocal up front and center where it deserves to be. Sure Tiesto’s remix of the track is getting all of the attention right now, but this video is definitely worth four minutes of your time — pause Club Life Miami.Posted by
We’ve been telling you about the constantly growing list of DJs signing exclusive residencies in Las Vegas, but the 2012 lineup of artists that’ll be at the various Wynn properties throughout the year is too big not to share. Between Encore Beach Club, Surrender, Tryst, and XS, over thirty artists will be calling the Wynn / Encore their home in Sin City throughout 2012 — and it symbolizes the hotel’s huge investment in electronic music. Among the artists on the roster are such names as Afrojack, Calvin Harris, Alesso, Dada Life, and Tiesto. David Guetta will be bringing his F*** Me I’m Famous party to Encore Beach Club, and other familiar names like the Manufactured Superstars, Max Vangeli, Nervo, Skrillex, and Steve Angello are all on the list. Other clubs in Vegas have tried to bring in talent like this, but the breadth and depth of this list will make it hard for anyone to top. Is Vegas the new Ibiza? The likening has never seemed more appropriate
We’ll admit that a world-class DJ like Tiesto never really seemed like the kind of guy to have a residency in a spot called “The Joint,” but thankfully he’s doing things a bit bigger for 2012. Our top EDM act of 2011 has announced that he’s relocating to the Wynn / Encore for exclusive residencies at Encore Beach Club, Surrender, and XS. These are three of Dancing Astronaut’s favorite places to party when in the City of Sin, and we’re excited for all that Tijs has in store for the year. His official debut will take place at XS on Saturday February 4th as part of the Super Bowl weekend festivities. Tickets are available for purchase now; from past experience, you should probably get there early.
It’s a Friday folks. You may be beat from the long week or looking for a reason to go out and destroy a dancefloor later in the evening. Either way this video (taken at the luxurious XS Nightclub) has got to get your wheels churning for some fun. Whether you like Avicii’s mixing abilities or not, one thing is for certain, he takes the crowd to new heights with his productions. If you are currently in Vegas or have a trip planned for New Years Eve – your destination for the wildest night out is XS – located in the Encore Hotel.
Hopefully our guide to Halloween weekend persuaded you to embark upon a journey to the desert of joy – Las Vegas. This is a video recap of the entire weekend which featured Avicii on Friday, Axwell on Saturday, Deadmau5 on Sunday, and the combination of Afrojack and Alesso on Halloween night. Needless to say, XS continues to crush it night in and night out. Only the biggest and brightest stars can gain residencies to Encore’s most lavish club, nowadays even headlining on an ‘off’ weekend is a huge deal. To top off a huge month for the nightclub – Deadmau5 recently announced his residency to the world in the most hilarious way possible. In the past Marquee has provided stiff competition to XS for the title of Best Club In Vegas, is it safe to say that XS currently holds the title belt?
Why isn’t Halloween a nationally recognized holiday? Nearly all young professionals and students go out and treat it as one of the biggest occasions of the entire year. You spend time planning your costume and where you’re going to party. Do corporate offices really want you to come in the next day hungover and less productive than normal? Of course not, but that’s what sick days are for. Hopefully this guide makes you want to stay a few extra days in the city of sin, so if you do decide to lengthen your stay make sure to keep this in mind: If you decide to go out, make sure you crush it. “I have work tomorrow” and “I have an early flight to catch,” are not valid excuses to tank a night out in one of the best cities in the entire world. If you are in that category, well, you might as well not have gone in the first place.
In this guide, we’ll break down the daily EDM events going down in each venue. That being said, we have a disclaimer. XS Nightclub decided to go balls to the wall and absolutely blow out their lineup. You could book a room in the Wynn or Encore and never even have to leave for the entire weekend. While new venues and different hotels add to the experience, are you really going to miss Avicii, Axwell, Alesso, Deadmau5 or Afrojack? That’s what we thought. Anyhow, make your decisions accordingly and thoroughly, any funny sexual excursions embarked upon during Halloween weekend that you would like to share with us can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thought “Without You” was a solid choice in our Nothing But The Beat album review, and we previously got a hard hitting remix from Dutch superstar Nicky Romero. R3hab now brings us his rendition of “Without You” which incorporates a huge drop that uses bl33ps, pounding drums, and a few distortions to give you that ‘fall off a cliff’ sensation. You will notice some similarities in the drop from R3hab’s remix of “Never Will Be Mine“, however what really sets this remix apart from the rest is how well Usher’s vocals are engineered. N-JOY!

On Sunday May 29th, electronic phenomenon Deadmau5 returned from his wildly successful two year anniversary party to bring his overwhelming popularity to Memorial Day Weekend at XS Nightclub.
Sunday marked the height of Memorial Day Weekend in Las Vegas as a lineup of all-star artists flooded the town. Talent such as Armin Van Buuren, Erick Morillo, Paul van Dyk, LA Riots, and David Guetta were all set to perform that evening and unfortunately we could only choose one. I whipped out the DA Guide to MDW and decided that Deadmau5 at XS was the place to be.
