Events | Disclosure’s Massive Wild Life NYE

Posted by on October 10, 2014

You have probably seen the headlines for this, but here is your reminder. Tickets are on sale in less than an hour for possibly the grooviest and deepest NYE celebration the world will see. Disclosure will be headlining the event under the umbrella of their “Wild Life” party, but they will be bringing in tow, since it is New York City, a whole bunch of additional headliners in Claude von Stroke, Ten Walls and Dusky, with hot and comers Isaac Tichauer and Kyle Hall also joining the bill. Besides a festival bill, you will be hard pressed to find something as good as this for a one night only event on one stage. Grab your tickets below and make sure you are at Pier 94 on NYE for this funky fun.

Alesso Uprising

After a Swedish House Mafia like promo campaign for Alesso Rising (it makes sense since he is managed by Axwell & Seb’s manager), Alesso recently announced his Alesso Rising fall tour across the US that will take him to Boston, Las Vegas, San Diego, Detroit, LA and finish on NYE in New York at Pier 94. He just released his latest single alongside Calvin Harris and Hurts, “Under Control“, and still has plenty of unreleased music, so you will need to go check him out.

We have the chance of possibly a lifetime for all of you New Englanders, and really Northeast people. This giveaway is huge, it has headphones, VIP tickets and a meet & greet all wrapped up into one bundle of pure awesome. You will have the chance to win a pair of Urbanear headphones, 2 VIP Tickets, and a Meet and Greet with the man of the hour himself, Alesso. If bring a pen for him to sign something, make sure it works, I totally didn’t do that with Nicky Romero. To enter, just follow the directions of the punchtab below, and you can always grab tickets for the show here, or for the entire tour here.

Electro-House | Quintino & MOTi ft. Taylr Renee – Dynamite

Quintino & MOTi ft. Taylr Renee - Dynamite
There is something undeniably awesome about this track. Whether it is the quick succession of synth stutters and risers, or the groove that somehow fits itself into the rhythm, it all fits so well. This was the ID I left Pier 94 on NYE wanting the most and at last here it is. Thank you based Vorwerk. The singer Taylr Renne; look out for her. First she gets on Axwell & Sick Individuals’ track “I Am”, and now this. Watch for her to be singsonging her way around the dance music world very soon.

Progressive House | Arty feat. Chris James – Together We Are

Posted by on February 18, 2013


Arty just doesn’t make bad songs. It has taken him over a year to finish this song since he first premiered it two New Years Eve’s ago on Pier 94 in NYC and hearing the final product makes it worth the wait. Arty is already on off to an outstanding start to the year with his collab with Armin “Nehalennia” having staying power atop the Beatport trance charts and now with probably his most sought after ID being released, Arty is quickly making his way into the dance music elite. “Together We Are” combines everything you want from Arty and more — a subtly complex bass line, heavily reverbed piano creating a sublime melody, ethereal strings, atmospheric pads and vocals from Chris James that fit the song like a glove. Look for more from Arty soon with a remix package for “Together We Are” in March with the instrumental mix, his single “Believe In Me” coming on Anjunabeats Volume 10 and he hinted at the release of “Grand Final” in April or May during his Mixify Set.

Events, Review | Afrojack, Diplo & Rusko invade Pier 94 For A Pre-New Years Party To Remember

Posted by on January 7, 2013

Accompanied by Sazon Booya, Leroy Styles & Bobby Burns, Afrojack, Diplo & Rusko came down on Pier 94 in New York City on the eve of New Years Eve with a vengeance, displaying a wide variety of different styles and genres across this outstanding lineup. The venue was also playing host to Afrojack’s Jacked NYE party the following night, which went off with a bang, but no expense was spared or production lost on this night with 3 stars taking the stage. While it may have been the night before the biggest party night of the year and one might expect people to spend the night gearing up for NYE, but that did not stop the thousands of concert goers from seeing Diplo, Afrojack, & Rusko put on a clinic at Pier 94 well into the early morning. Leroy Styles & Sazon Booya got things started as the crowd started to file in at the 8pm, mixing in a steady pace of moombah and electro, keeping the growing swell of people moving and getting them warmed up for the main acts about to grace the decks.


Electro-House | Keane – Sovereign Light Café (Afrojack Remix)

Posted by on December 24, 2012

With Alesso remixing Keane’s very successful single “Silenced By The Night” to rave reviews, it was only a matter of time before another big name producer got their hands on a Keane track and made it their own. Afrojack slowly builds with a slow easy piano and the outstanding vocals from lead singer Tom Chaplin and then adds a blistering drop of pitched synths and a fast moving bass line. On the heals of his chart topping single “Annie’s Theme” and his upcoming remix for one billion youtube views “Gangnam Style”, as well as hosting a huge Jacked event on Pier 94 to ring in the New Year, Afrojack is continuing to assert his worldwide dominance on dance music.

Events, Review | Pier Of Fear: The Haunted House Tour Takes Over NYC

Posted by on November 7, 2012

Despite being still 5 days away, on Friday October 26th Halloween was in full swing at Pier 94 as the Haunted House Tour made its first stop in its trek across the country in New York City, bringing along a cast that included, Knife Party, Tommy Trash, Style of Eye and others. The sold out pier which has seen the likes of Avicii, Arty and others was rocking all night long with top of the line visuals consisting of an outstanding laser and light display. While it is true that Pier 94’s ventilation system is pretty awful and it becomes a sweat box, despite the size of the venue, the night overall one to remember with some great performances across the board.

Destructo, who’s day job is the head of Hard, the main event organizer of the night, started off the night with a set that mixed together a whole host of different genres getting the night started as the crowd was quickly starting to file in. Fast riser on the scene and hometown kid, Baauer, followed up Destructo with his hip hop infused electronic beats that got the party started with a bouncy mix of trap, electro and hip hop. Next up came Style Of Eye, who delivered my favorite set only to Tommy Trash.
