The boys are back in town! Guy and Howard Lawrence, more formally known as Disclosure, return to New York City this weekend for three days of non-stop music. After selling out Central Park Summer Stage this past August, which catalyzed an onset of competitive secondary market ticket sales, the two brothers locked down three consecutive dates at New York City’s Terminal 5 where they will perform live, along with after-parties on Friday and Saturday at Webster Hall and Output where they will perform a DJ set.

Tickets for the Terminal 5 shows are sold out. If you choose to purchase a ticket in the secondary market, beware of fake Craiglist tickets!

Big Gigantic is currently on their 2013 Winter Tour, which was much anticipated with varying opening artists depending on date but including Kill Paris, Manic Focus, HeRobust and Two Fresh. The amount of hype generated from the artists via social media as the New York date approaches is massive. Big Gigantic especially, after every date there’s a flood of posts ranging from pictures to statuses about how every show was better than the next. After releasing three new songs in the past four months, one featuring GRiZ, all of which brought their notoriety to new levels.

In the past year Big Gigantic has become especially well known, playing festivals such as Camp Bisco, Ultra and Bonnaroo. Not only do they have stellar produced tracks and remixes, but they also include live saxophone and drum performances during their sets. In reference to the opening artists the New York date features Kill Paris and Manic Focus. Both artists are expected to be a seamless transition into Big Gigantic’s set, all in all it’s guaranteed to be one of the most notable concerts of Winter 2013.

Yesterday Bassnectar uploaded a new mixtape, and as expected, it is nothing less than massive. Featuring new originals from his upcoming Freestyle EP (which is slated for release Oct. 16th), the 40 minute explosion of bass also includes unreleased remixes with some trap and moombahton flavors.

Go grab the free download from Lorin’s Soundcloud here. Bassnectar will be playing 2 sold-out shows at Terminal 5 on November 17th & 18th. Tickets are still available for the Nov 16th show in Montclair, NJ here.

EVENTS: Justice @ Terminal 5 on St. Patrick’s Day Weekend

justice EVENTS: Justice @ Terminal 5 on St. Patricks Day Weekend

If you are unsure who JUSTICE is, kindly ex out of your browser immediatley. With that being said, the French geniuses and Ed Banger Records all-stars return to NYC for a 2 show run at Terminal 5 this coming weekend. Touring for their second studio album, entitled ‘AUDIO, VIDEO, DISCO’, the anticipation for this show far exceeds anything I have bared witness to of late. Although the album is significantly less club friendly than ‘Cross’, to be able to see and hear Gaspard and Xavier recreate the tracks on their new album live will be a site to behold. Tickets sold out within minutes, but StubHub is always an option, as are the grimy scalpers lurking outside the venue. Expect to hear the underground gem ‘On n’ On’ Ruined by Rick Rubin, along with the smash hit ‘Civilation’ which was featured on an Adidas commercial.

Skrillex Takes On Miami, Then The World

By MichelleKUPP (@MichelleKUPP) on January 6th 2012


Skrillex is all over the place these days. He dropped his highly anticipated EP Bangarang just a few weeks ago to critical acclaim, and he’ll be doing an almost week long tour stop in NYC starting Jan. 31 at Webster Hall, followed by Feb. 1 at Pacha, and then two sold out shows Feb. 3 at Roseland Ballroom and Feb. 4 at Terminal 5. New York Magazine wrote about why Skrillex is so beloved in the States and the conclusion is that he creates an atmosphere that mashes together genres and smears it with a dose of good ole fashioned getting messed up and having fun. Can’t go wrong with that formula. Skrillex has helped to make dance music more acceptable among males in the US, instilling it with a “frat dude mentality.” Anyone who has been to an EDM show, particularly a dubstep one, knows that the male to female ratio is vastly skewed towards the former. The music has become attractive to males, as even big room house and progressive now have a lot of elements that are similar to the previous domain of men, heavy metal.

Check out the video and be jealous that you weren’t there to experience the Skrillex effect. Enjoy!

A Trak, Tiga, Miike Snow + More (HARD Turkey Soup) @ Terminal 5 in NYC 11.27.2010 (Review, Videos, Pictures)

Clipboard032 A Trak, Tiga, Miike Snow + More (HARD Turkey Soup) @ Terminal 5 in NYC 11.27.2010 (Review, Videos, Pictures)

This review was submitted by my good friend James Macedonio, Manhasset’s resident DJ and dance music enthusiast.

In the modern age of music, it seems that any idiot with a keyboard and a cracked version of logic can throw together a half decent remix and achieve their fifteen minutes of internet fame. Given this, you might jump to the conclusion that electronic music producers and DJ’s are not talented. It’s a point I’ve argued against with many self proclaimed music enthusiasts who can’t find it in themselves to respect an artist who doesn’t play in a jam band or wear eye liner. For all the non-believers out there, my argument is simple: DJ A Trak. Check out the full review after the jump.
