My EDM Weekend In Las Vegas

While the rest of the team headed to Coachella Weekend 1, I traveled to Las Vegas – one of my favorite cities ever – for a weekend that ended up being a mini pre-selected EDM festival of my own. I planned to see Calvin Harris at Hakkasan on April 10, and again at the grand opening of MGM’s  Wet Republic the following day. Unfortunately, he fell ill and cancelled both performances. Instead, Burns played at Hakkasan until the early hours of the morning and no announcement was made, leaving the crowd disappointed after dancing with in anticipation all night. Since...

MLA Q&A || X-Tour with Bassjackers and Dyro

Originally posted on November 3rd, 2014 on The Scene Is Dead. Click HERE for original story! As I headed into Bassmnt in San Diego for the first stop of Bassjackers and Dyro’s X-Tour, I already knew that it was going to be a great night. Kenneth G was on the decks making the crowd move in the fully packed club, I could tell that it was going to be a great night. I grabbed a quick drink at the bar and met up with some friends while his set ended. A group of the clubs security guards surrounding Dyro moved...

Wynn Las Vegas || 2015 Memorial Day Weekend Lineup

Sin City’s hottest nightclubs stay busy year round, but spring has arrived which means dayclub season is now underway. Vegas’ energy always turns up a notch around this time; eager clubgoers can now party all day and night with events from roughly 10 am – 4 pm and then again the same day from 10 pm – 4 am the next morning. While Marquee Las Vegas has been experimenting with their dayclub dome, most of the strip’s known dayclubs have been closed until recently, leaving us to wonder about spring’s daytime lineup. Event announcements means it’s time to get wet...

Branchez at Foundation (Seattle)

Known for his ever popular remixes of Rihanna’s “Stay”, What So Not’s “High You Are” and official releases for Maybach Music Group artists Rick Ross and Stalley, Branchez has received critical acclaim from the hip hop and EDM communities and their respective fans alike.I first encountered Branchez at Hard Day of the Dead 2013 when a friend insisted on seeing him and described him as an up and coming act from New York. He played an early set and there wasn’t a huge crowd, but I could tell everyone was especially excited to catch him and showed up early...

Pierce Fulton at Foundation (Seattle)

Seattle’s collective interest in EDM has been growing this year and Foundation nightclub wasted no time jumping on board. This weekend I attended Progression Saturdays – a weekly event featuring trance and progressive house with Pierce Fulton headlining. Opening support from Audioh eased the crowd into the evening with deep house and popular EDM tracks for several hours until DJ’s Rion and Darrius pumped the crowd up with an energetic set before introducing Pierce Fulton. By the time he took the stage, the place was pretty packed. His set took off right away with LED screens encouraging the crowd...

MK at Bang Bang Review

Bang Bang is a quite unique venue here in San Diego. It is one of the newest clubs that host EDM here in Downtown. Their theme has a strong emphasis of the Japanese culture. Within moments of entering, you are presented with hanging lanterns across the ceiling, newspapers and advertisements decor, and a full sushi bar! Half of the club is a large bar/restaurant area, and the other half is the nightclub/DJ area. If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend checking out this interesting twist on the restaurant/nightclub hybrid. This place is an excellent place to either enjoy a DJ that you like, have a fancier dinner, or some combination of the two! This was my first time getting to have a meal here, despite being here multiple times since discovering this place earlier this year. Their specialty rolls are well themed, plated, and named. I decided to try the Godzilla roll this time, although the Bruce Lee roll was definitely calling my name. The Godzilla roll was spicy, looked good, and everything I was expecting. After trying a few of their specialty cocktails, it was time to swing over to the dance floor side of the venue. The clearest main attraction is the enormous disco ball prominently hung in the center of the room. It is the largest disco ball in the west coast, and...
