Pacha New York Celebrates Its Five-Year Anniversary with Five Epic Events

PACHA NEW YORK CELEBRATES ITS FIVE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH FIVE EPIC EVENTS
International superstars David Guetta, Danny Tenaglia, Erick Morillo, Fedde Le Grande, Luciano and Kaskade will headline

New York, NY – Five years of super-DJs and epic bass, nitrogen blasts and twin cherries, celebrity drop-ins and bodacious shower girls. Of sing-a-longs, snare builds, hands-in-the-air drops, baby powder spins. Five years full of some of the greatest nightlife moments New York City has ever seen. How does one of the planet’s top nightclubs mark such an auspicious occasion? With five more best-parties-of-your-life, over two unforgettable weekends (December 3-4; December 10-13).

Pacha New York proudly presents The Five-Year Anniversary: A celebration of where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going – all alongside our faithful patrons and dedicated fans of electronic music. Representing everything from minimal techno to big-room house, from classic grooves to the most popular dance music in the world, the diverse line-up brings some of the world’s top DJ talent to the Pacha booth for very special sets.

Friday, December 3
PART I: David Guetta
Kicking off the 5-Year with a bang (or a boom-boom-pow?), Pacha welcomes Grammy Award-winning sensation David Guetta back to the booth from which he first rocked New York. In just four years, Guetta has gone from Ibiza’s favorite son and the creator of the infamous “F*ck Me I’m Famous” party, to every pop star’s go-to producer and an international star in his own right, gracing the cover of Billboard magazine and pumping out hits like Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling” to his own “When Love Takes Over” with Kelly Rowland. Working with luminaries like Rowland, Ne-Yo and even Madonna, Guetta is an unstoppable force, championing dance music amongst the masses and the elite.

Saturday, December 4
PART II: Kaskade
Honest. Elegant. Beautiful. Such terms are rarely used to describe electronic artists and their music. But Kaskade is a rare breed.
The songwriter/producer/DJ/phenomenon is one of electronic music’s most sought-after emissaries, and one of its most beloved figures. Unaffected and laidback, he’s known to show up to gigs in flip-flops, ready to warm the room – to a simmer or a boil – with his unique brand of feel-good music. Fittingly, his just-released new compilation is titled “dance.love.”
Tonight, the DJ brings his dreamy-meets-tough style to Pacha, after successful New York sets at Roseland and Electric Zoo, and constant touring just about everywhere else. That’s right, in addition to all that love, Kaskade is a road warrior, playing a staggering 140-plus club and festival dates worldwide each year, including Global Gathering, Nocturnal Wonderland, Field Day, and Coachella, where he shared a stage with Madonna.

Friday, December 10
PART III: Cadenza Vagabundos with Luciano and Friends
Back in May, Luciano made an unexpected move that rocked Ibiza: The master of techno and house (with a Chilean flare), and poster boy for DC10’s Monday morning Bacchanal Circoloco, announced that he was packing up his tricks and taking them across the island to Pacha for the 2010 party season.
After a magical summer at Pacha Ibiza that brought the distinctive Cadenza sound to a whole new audience, Luciano and his Vagabundos crew are extending his association with the brand with a one-night-only, unmissable appearance at Pacha New York, kicking off week two of its 5-Year Anniversary celebration.
The night will offer more than just great music: It will be a full-fledged experience the likes of which have never been seen inside Pacha’s four walls. A full stage set, chandeliers, trunks, vintage posters, and umbrellas will transport guests back to the ‘30s, when the vagabundos, or vagabonds – think wanderers, tramps, or as Luciano has conceived them, slightly ghoulish carnies – first roamed. Pacha’s legendary dancers will join the costumed fun, while a makeup artist transforms any willing patron into a vagabundo. Plus, they’ll be Vagabundos-branded top hats for everyone, and that infamous red velvet curtain, which drops to conclude Luciano’s performance – just like in Ibiza.
Luciano will be joined by Robert Dietz, whose first Cadenza release “Home Run” came out in July; and Reboot, one of the hottest producers of the year, whose techy tracks “Shunyata” and “Hermano” rocked the summer,

Saturday, December 11
PART IV: Erick Morillo, Fedde Le Grand
It wouldn’t be a Pacha Anniversary celebration without Erick Morillo, Pacha’s co-owner and chairman of the board. On this extra-special night, he’ll be joined by international sensation Fedde Le Grand, the man behind mega-hits like “Put Your Hands Up For Detroit” and “Let Me Think About It.”
Morillo is consistently one of the top-ranked house DJs on the planet, bringing his party style across the globe and keeping the original music coming through his New Jersey-based imprint Subliminal Records. In a testament to his legacy of creating “best-nights-ever” every time he plays, he’s one of 35 jocks up for MixMag’s “The Greatest DJ of All Time” title.
Morillo is fresh off yet another wild summer on the White Isle, when his “Voodoo Nights” party lit up every Wednesday at Pacha Ibiza.
“I loved being able to carry on my role as the witch doctor, entrancing the dance floor with some very powerful Subliminal magic,” he said.
The man they call Fedde has an ear for pop but the chops of a nightclub DJ. He collaborated with artists like will.i.am and Stereo MCs on “Output,” the 2009 original album from which he’s still releasing singles (including the latest, “Rockin High”).
With these two partying and dropping bombs in the booth, the energy will be full-wattage all night long.

Sunday, December 12
PART V: Tenaglia Classics
DT takes us home with a classic Sunday party devoted to what else? Classics.
One of the greatest DJs of all time and a true New York legend, Danny Tenaglia embodies the music-first ethic of old school DJs, while embracing the newest sounds. His sets are known travel freely between house, techno, electro, dub, and every possible subgenre, while infusing elements of R&B, funk and soul.
The Grammy nominee and revered producer is in-demand on the world stage and beloved in New York, where his “Be Yourself” party is the stuff of legend, bringing new sounds to the city every Friday for five years.
Tonight, he explores his vast catalog of “classics” – past, present and future – wrapping up Pacha’s 5-Year celebration with a tribute to all the music that gives nightclubs their reason for being.

ELECTRIC ZOO Over 50,000 Electronic Music Fans Attend Two-Day Festival’s Sold-out Second Year

ELECTRIC ZOO Over 50,000 Electronic Music Fans Attend Two-Day Festival’s Sold-out Second Year

At Electric Zoo 2010 over Labor Day weekend, over 50,000 music lovers and over 70 of the world’s best DJs and artists chased Hurricane Earl out of Randall’s Island Park in New York City for two sold-out days. Cool breezes and hot beats were as abundant as electronic music styles, including techno, trance, house, dubstep, electro and more, from artists like The Chemical Brothers, Armin van Buuren, Axwell, Bassnectar, Moby, Major Lazer, Pretty Lights and Richie Hawtin. Not to mention the variety of food choices—from Miss Softee’s specialty “electric cone,” ice cream topped with Pop Rocks to Pizza Moto’s wood-fired pizza—which all came together as a true celebration of the today’s global dance music culture and a raging success for the festival’s second year.

“We are thrilled with the overwhelming turn-out for our second year. We view it as a testament to the growing popularity of electronic music in America and the fact that we all just want to hear a good beat. The enthusiasm of the crowd was truly inspiring to us. Thanks to everyone for coming out to dance – we are already looking forward to EZ 2011!”
– Laura De Palma & Mike Bindra, Electric Zoo Executive Producers

This year, Electric Zoo added even more to the festival’s visual art experience, inviting renowned artists Chor Boogie, Mr. Maxx Moses, Doze Green, Cern, Cekis, and Brent Nolasco to showcase their diverse styles and collaborate together by painting the Sunday School Grove buses. One bus will be donated to NYC Arts Cypher, a non-profit organization committed to promoting positive values through arts and entertainment programs, projects and events among at risk youth, to be used as a mobile art workshop/multimedia lab. The other bus will be returning to Electric Zoo next year!

“America’s Biggest Dance Parties: Electric Zoo Festival” —Rolling Stone

“In a musical zone that diligently parses itself into subgenres, the festival’s 67 acts added up to both a dance marathon and a broad-spectrum survey, from crowd-pleasing trance and relentless techno to abstract minimal house. In the three tents and on an outdoor main stage… every style put bodies in motion.” — Jon Pareles, New York Times

“Electric Zoo went down in a big way over Labor Day weekend on Randall’s Island in New York City. Complete with an all-star lineup, four stages, perfect weather, and two days of sold-out 25,000+ person crowds, the festival was nothing less than epic.” —Frank151

“[The Chemical Brothers] was a phenomenal close to a gorgeous day, filled with extraordinary talent, exhilarating consumption, and exhausting dance moves.” — BlackBook Magazine

“New York is one of the best markets for electronic music and there are a lot of fans. New York finally has the [Electronic Dance Music] festival it deserves.” — Armin van Buuren

“The last time I’d played Randall’s Island was Lollapalooza in 1995, and Electric Zoo was bigger! The production was great, and the audience was amazing!” —Moby

“Electric Zoo was amazing! New York definitely brought the energy!” —Laidback Luke

“EZ was amazing this year! The production was a lot more intense and the crowds were ready for it – the energy was through the roof. It makes me happy to see everyone so excited about EDM in NYC again…the way it should be. This is the best festival on the East Coast and it is only its 2nd year!” —Kaskade

“I loved playing Electric Zoo! The crowd looked like they were having the time of their life.” —A-Trak

“Electric Zoo just raised its bar up notches from last year. Sold out crowd for NYC and the people were having it all the way to the end. Amazing festival and lineup.” —Steve Aoki

With each passing day, not only does anticipation grow but the already massive collection of DJs, producers, and live acts scheduled to perform gets bigger, better and more diverse.

This year’s final festival lineup will include additions from electronic music pioneer Moby playing a rare Main Stage DJ set on Sunday. Other notable additions include New York’s favorite resident DJ Boris, veteran German trance duo Cosmic Gate, the U.S. debut from Italian techno wonder Dusty Kid, new school trance heavyweight Glenn Morrison, Dutch electro/trance superstar Sander van Doorn, and Colorado dance/rock outfit Savoy.

On Saturday, the Main Stage will be headlined by The Chemical Brothers on the heels of their latest release Further, Italian electro favorite Benny Bennasi, German trance king ATB, and dancehall bangers Major Lazer. On Sunday, Armin van Buuren returns for a headlining set on the eve of his new artist album Mirage, along with Moby, Dutch house sensation Fedde Le Grand, and Berlin’s Boys Noize with his mutant techno sound. The Hilltop Arena will be headlined by Grammy nominated artist, globally acclaimed DJ and perennial NYC favorite Paul van Dyk, along with prolific artist Kaskade supporting his sixth album, Dynasty, and UK trance trio Above & Beyond with their upcoming album Ajnunabeats Vol 8. The Red Bull Music Academy Tent will feature Colorado’s self-publishing machine Pretty Lights and his electro organic cutting-edge party rocking beats and San Francisco’s freeform artist Bassnectar. Finally, the Sunday School Grove returns with its signature school buses, featuring techno innovator Richie Hawtin and Bedrock maestro John Digweed.
