NYE NYC with Dada Life, Deniz Koyu, & Bassjackers

This December 31st there's nowhere in the world I’d rather be than the Dada Land Compound in Brooklyn, New York to celebrate the biggest night (or morning) of the New Year with my two favorite Swedes. Olle and Stefan will be commanding a 64,000 square foot warehouse, transforming the space into the ultimate Dada playground. I've seen Dada Life three times already, at Electric ForestElectric Zoo, and Electric Adventure, and their live sets are nothing short of pure energy, so I can’t even imagine what this party will have in store for us. Area Event, who brought us the rager in the form of Electric Adventure at Six Flags back in the fall, will be proudly throwing this party in true Tri-State fashion. At this NYE party, there are no rules - but the rules of Dada.


As if this show didn't already sound mind-blowing, the two opening DJs are a stellar edition to the already high-octane ravefest. Turkish Progressive House DJ/Producer Deniz Koyu is sure to set the tone for the night with his energetic, synth-driven beats, exhilarating build-ups, and dirty breakdowns.  His biggest hit, “Tung”, has reached worldwide acclaim - let's just say that if you're humming this track on the sidewalk, people WILL recognize (trust me on this one!).  Start your pregaming early, because you won't want to miss out on hitting the "Bong" to D Koyu's potent electronic beats!

Keeping in line with the Electro vibe, Bassjackers is an exciting addition to this lineup. Their productions have that Progressive flair without a lot of vocals, leaving pure raw energy the norm. This duo is absolutely gonna turn up the bass, so don’t be surprised if your makeup is running before Dada even comes on.

NYC has survived Hurricane Sandy, the presidential election, and the Mayan apocalypse, so let's close out 2012 with a fucking bang! Chug champagne and eat bananas like you're low on potassium, because Dada Life is going to ensure that no matter how pretty you arrived, you’re going to leave a mess. Now feed the DADA!

EDM New Years Eve 2012: The Definitive East Coast List

This year I am so done with over-hyped house parties with a tapped out keg, drunk biddies hanging around the bathroom, and sweaty basement dancefloors that play the likes of Pitbull and Ke$ha. Nope, this New Year's Eve is so stacked with killer raves and EDM events, I'd literally be crazy not to go to one. The only dilemma: which to choose?? I've stockpiled all the best east coast shows into one masterpost to make your decision process a little smoother. Get ready to ring in 2013 with good vibes, confetti, and of course a fuckton of dancing. You're welcome in advance! (For this blogger the decision process was simple; I'll be DOING THE DADA all the way into the New Year!!!)

This Weekend in NYC: Dayglow with R3hab at Governors Island

Well it’s about that time of the year again. Day Glow, now known as Life In Color, is hitting up New York this Sunday at the acclaimed Governors Island in the grand finale to "the Summer of EDM" in the Big Apple. With a better lineup than ever, Life In Color is out to create a reputation for themselves that will surpass anything that former DayGlow-ers have ever seen. This year, the DJ lineup shows great potential with the likes of R3hab and Bassjackers to fuel this paint-splattered party. 

Hot on its The E.N.D. (Electronic Never Dies) tour, Life In Color makes a promise to its fans that with each party they throw, the music gets sicker, the venue bigger, and the paint messier. From its original inception in 2009, Life In Color has come a long way in perfecting the art of how to throw a perfect paint party. With the recent change of venue from Long Island to Governors Island, this Sunday has the exact formula for an epic good time. How could it not with R3hab headlining the show? I've been highly anticipating his return since I saw him tear it up at Pacha with his high-energy Dutch House beats. Now with a longer set in a larger-than-life venue, R3hab is going to host this event like no one's ever seen. Come out on Sunday to get weird, get filthy, and most importantly, to see Life In Color.
