Tomorrow in NYC: Fedde le Grand @ Pacha

Tomorrow night Fedde Le Grand will be giving his talented hands a stab at one of the hottest soundsystems in New York City. Pacha always hosts the biggest names in the industry, but this show is looking like it will be one of the biggest and best of the summer. After having multiple top 10 releases within the past few months, Fedde is on an absolute tear right now on top of just coming off a heart-stopping performance at EDC Chicago. The Dutchman is a rare breed of talent who kills every show he plays whether in front of tens of thousands at a festival or just a few at an intimate club. Over the last year, he's played sold-out shows all around the world and is now looking to impose his will on the now sweaty hot Big Apple. Tickets had previously sold out for this event, but have now come back on sale, so make sure you don't miss one of the best sets of the Manhattan summer! See you there!

Win VIP Tickets to Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano @ Pacha

I can hardly think of two House DJs who have organically grown such a huge following here in the East Coast scene while escaping the superstar stigma. The two have been on top of their game worldwide for some time now internationally but ever since I saw their set last year at EDC New York I've been allured by their true skills at luring in people from within a festival to the front of their stage. The two budding producers have enticed many fans in with their unique set style which relies somewhat on the popular sounds of Electro but is never afraid to get deep and funky. This Friday the two are hitting Midtown Manhattan for a extended set that is sure to be Amsterdam good. Enter our contest with Pacha to win a pair of free VIP tickets below, the winners will be contacted Friday afternoon. We hope to see you there and be sure to check back next week for our interview with them!

Win a NYE VIP Package for 4 & Meet Sander van Doorn at Pacha

Pacha NYC is hosting a hell of a party this New Year's Eve. With Sander van Doorn & his Spinnin' protegé Julian Jordan hitting the decks, it's going to be a hot night for dance music in the Midtown Manhattan club. Accompanied by a personal favorite, Arty, I have to hand it to the Ibiza party-creators for putting together such a cohesive lineup that blurs the lines between Trance & Progressive. By the time the clock strikes 12 you'll be hopping like a "Kangaroo". Well actually, you'll probably be out until at least sunup. But that's what it's all about: dusk til' dawn. General admission tickets may be a little pricey, but not anything like you'll be paying at any other show. And the $110 open-bar passes are a steal.

Even better, Pacha is offering up a killer contest for our readers. Just download and share the flyer (above) on your Facebook wall, tag four friends, and enter your contact details here. You could win not only a VIP table including entry for four and a complimentary bottle of champagne but a meet and greet with Sander! Even if you're under 21, you're still eligible to enter (although you may not be getting that booze).

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!

Preview: Eric Prydz @ Roseland Ballroom NYC

Believe it or not New Yorkers, but this weekend, a once in a lifetime EDM event will be occurring right here in Manhattan. Eric Prydz, world-renowned DJ, has finally conquered his fear of flying to come to the states and put on a show for us. One of the greatest house DJs of all time, his fame has been stifled by his inability to tour internationally, but this week he will be blessing NYC with not just one, but two shows this week at famed venue Roseland Ballroom.

Originating as a Swedish Progressive House DJ, Eric Prydz has made his name known in the EDM world through his massive hits such as “Call On Me”, a sexy club banger played all around the world. Holding a place of #52 on the Top 100 DJ Mag’s List and #14 on the Top House DJs List, Eric Prydz proves that he’s earned his spot through being a musician, rather than just through cheap performance antics. While Prydz certainly masters all of his produced hits, it is not doubt to anyone who’s seen him live that he is one of the few remaining DJs who live mixes, and is damn good at it.

Just recently releasing his long-anticipated album, Pryda under Virgin Records, this album does nothing but completes Prydz’s image as a versatile DJ. Influenced mainly by Trance and Tech, this album has the perfect blend of happy go-lucky tunes and emotionally blissful songs that could bring any listener to tears. Simple and uplifting, Prydz’s style as reflected in Pryda proves to be universally appealing and an excellent listen for anyone’s music taste.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but this Thanksgiving, I’m definitely thankful for Prydz and the shows that he will be giving us. Tickets are still on sale for only $40 to see a DJ that you would otherwise have to travel to Europe to see - quite a bargain on airfare if you ask me. Eric Prydz will be playing on both tonight (Thanksgiving Eve) and Saturday night also for those you returning to the city after a hearty Thanksgiving. All of you genuine ravers better make sure you come out the Roseland Ballroom at least one of these nights for such a special EDM holiday treat: to see a true EDM genius at work.

Tickets Still on Sale
