Trance | Monoverse Live At PACHA NYC 11-08-2014

Posted by on November 11, 2014

Your headliner is winding down. You consistently check your watch. Yup, it’s almost 5am. Do you stay or do you call it a night? All of a sudden it transitions to the closing DJ and he begins like this:

You take in your surroundings; it’s dark but you don’t need light for this. You start moving with the bassline, first your legs, then your arms – you’re engulfed in a sea of shufflers – the rave has begun.



Closing down one of the hottest night clubs in the Big Apple isn’t a privilege that should be taken for granted and Monoverse only adds to the calibre of talent that Pacha regularly showcases. By taking us deep into the rabbit hole, Monoverse refused to slow down this past weekend by any means and spoon fed hard hitting trance and techno to satisfy the 5am cravings of these enduring trance warriors. He couldn’t stop there – no, forgetting about his fans worldwide would just be rude, so it would only make sense that a man as humble as Monoverse would do us right and give away this set for free.

Based out of New York, Santos Torres is a producer, a DJ, and an entrepreneur as a founder of the recently established Amped Artists. While the imprint itself is still young, it has already seen success and support from powerful players such as Myon & Shane 54, Jaytech, Super8 & Tab, Tucandeo, Tom Fall, and Rank 1. He also hosts a monthly radio show, every second Monday of each month, on Afterhours.FM. He has work ethic and vision, two crucial ingredients for success.

So here it is, welcome to a night in the life of Monoverse:

Anjunadeep man turned Anjunabeats Dj and producer James Cayzer better known as Jaytech is coming off of a year that saw him release his sophomore album “Multiverse” and cement his position as one of the better members of the Anjunabeats family. 2012 saw him grace the stages like EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo and Tomorrowland, while touring the world in destinations like North America, Japan, Europe and his native Australia. He most recently released his track “Inception” on Anjunabeats Volume 10, one of the darker tracks on the compilation. After moving to Berlin 3 years ago, a move that has been “really great”, from his 2 year stint in London to be closer to the Anjunabeats family, he feels right at home making music that feels right.

We got him on the phone at his place in Berlin in between shows last weekend in New York and Slovakia and then back to the US this week for the all important WMC. You can find info on his gigs down in Miami and beyond here. We had the chance to chat about the mistakes openers make and how to stand out as an opener, upcoming material, how business is changing dance music and much more.

 RECAP VIDEOS: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3

Being from Colorado I went into SnowGlobe Music Festival in South Lake Tahoe, CA a bit cocky thinking it would be impossible for me to get cold but the first day proved me wrong. Despite being bundled up in huge down jackets, the entire crowd was amped and ready to rage. We got a late start to the first day and walked-in mid set with the crowd in full force already with Minnesota throwing down. With constant top-notch releases from Minnesota all year I was really excited to see him live and he didn’t disappoint. Next up was the first night headliner, Wiz Khalifa. I was following Wiz’s Tweet’s and Instagram’s and he was not ready for the cold but he didn’t let it hold him back. The crowd exploded as he opened with Black and Yellow and he kept the energy the entire time playing all his big hits. The stage set-up was incredible and watching Wiz live surrounded by massive pine trees and snow coming down was surreal. Wiz ended earlier than the schedule indicated and we rushed to the shuttles because we had to make it back for the after party. The after party that night was what I was most excited for because Seven Lions was the headliner. Kill Paris was slotted to play before Seven Lions but unfortunatly he got stuck in Indiana and wasn’t able to make it. The set up in the hotel was one of the most awkward setups I’ve ever seen, it felt like high school prom gone EDM but that wasn’t going to hold us back. Seven Lions was without a doubt the best performance of the night and he will soon be at all major festivals. One of my favorite songs ever is his Florence and the Machine – Cosmic Love Remix and he dropped a great version of it and I guarantee  anyone who didn’t know who he was before the show was googling him immediately after. He exceeded my expectations and make sure to add him to your “MUST SEE” list.
