Fedde le Grand is further testament to the theory that when it comes to overly talented musical homelands, there could indeed be something in Holland's water. Come hear his latest on Spinnin' Records, "Raw" set to be released December 24. Also in the booth? The one and only Pete Tong: been around since DJs first put needle to vinyl, and is still making hits happen with his internationally influential Radio One and Essential Mix shows. As if that wasn't enough, LA-native Audrey Napoleon completes the trifecta, who is plotting an explosive opening set.
Tonight we celebrate our anniversary by giving New Yorkers one hell of a present: A double-header between two of Pacha New York's favorite longtime residents, Boris and Oscar G. Oscar G kicks off the night, infusing the Afro-Cuban sounds of his native Miami with New York's dark grooves. Boris takes over in the wee hours with the epic tribal and techno that you know and love him for. Expect a no-holds-barred night of epic musical bliss.
Children of trance, this one's for you. German duo Cosmic Gate (aka Nic Chagall and DJ Bossi) make ecstatic and beautiful trance that cradles you in synth washes and melodies, rather than clobbers you over the head with them. Their latest material like "Wake Your Mind" is warm and enveloping - but with pure hands-in-the-air energy.
Gareth Emery has secured his position among the international dance music elite through a multifaceted career as a DJ, producer, and label manager. A staple in the DJ Mag Top 100, moving to #14 in 2012, his sets are roundly respected as deep and diverse cutting-edge collections of tracks, inspired - but not dictated - by his lifelong love of trance music.
Benny's back! Hit the floor for an epic set from our favorite Italian export, rocking the decks for another spectacular edition of "Benny Benassi & Friends!" We expect nothing less than an electro-rocking, roof-raising, floor-burning good time, setting a high bar for Pacha's best year yet.
The prolific, inventive, genre-hopping Luke's got a style made for the big rooms of New York. We're talking drums, synths, sirens, and syncopation. Whether he's remixing Robyn or Tiesto; or collaborating with Chuckie or Martin Solveig, the high-energy producer/jock shoots a dose of nuclear power into all of his creations. And we can't wait to hear "1234" (Beatport it!) on Pacha's sound system. This is a can't-miss night of serious dancing!
Trance superstar Ferry Corsten is the kind of international DJ that legends are made of. After recording the New Years Eve edition of Corsten's Countdown, Ferry will be visiting Pacha NYC for the official afterparty, where he'll be sure to take the sophisticated fusion trance and house as well as banging elements of his latest album "Once Upon A Night Vol. 3" to the extremes.
