Weekend Pick: Manufactured Superstars Suite Beats Record Release Party at Gansevoort Park

Playing together under the moniker Manufactured Superstars, Bradley Roulier and Shawn Sabo have held down DJ residencies in Las Vegas and Atlantic City, played massive EDM festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival and Nocturnal Wonderland, and even have their own radio show and podcast on IHeartRadio. Manufactured Superstars are all about fun and their sets - which go from pop to prog and then wander over to electro without skipping a beat - are just that: pure fun.

Joining forces with the innovative Gansevoort Hotel Group, Manufactured Superstars have created two custom mixes inspired by the daytime vibe and the nightlife scene that the Gansevoort’s guests keep coming back for, aptly titled ‘Suite Beats.’ The two sets, released on Black Hole Recordings, feature remixes and exclusive edits of popular contemporary and throwback tunes as well as a handful of original tracks designed to propel you forward into wherever the day or the night takes you.

Weekend Picks: Brite Nites ft. Paris Blohm at Webster Hall

Saving the best for last, Paris Blohm's tour bus is pulling into New York City where he'll be ending his Demons Tour at Webster Hall as a part of the venue’s weekly party, Brite Nites. This being Webster Hall, you can either join Blohm in the grand ballroom and balcony, or if progressive trance EDM isn’t where you be all night, you can always go down to the basement to get grimey or take a trip to the Marlin Room for all the hip-hop, top 40, and mashups that your little brain can handle.

Any way you shake it, all this music can be all yours for the price of a Jackson. Get your tickets here and get ready to shine like a diamond, because you know it's gonna get a little sweaty.

WEEKEND PICKS
Weekend Pick: Remix Fridays at Katra

DJ Fat Fingaz, member of the Heavy Hitters DJ collective, has been at the game of party-rocking for over fifteen years, but just because you got experience making the people wile out, doesn’t mean you don’t have to update the interfaces and graphics of your website from time to time. That being done, there’s nothing left for DJ Fat Fingaz to do but make the people dance all night long, so come by Katra this Friday and give in to the 2 levels of party rock inside the doors of the Remix Fridays.

Ladies get in free before 1 AM, guys get in free before midnight if they RSVP, and everybody gets 2 for 1 drinks and an open champagne bar from 11 PM - 12 AM, so the incentives to get in early are abundant. Check out the invite for more information and whatever you do remember to mention that you’re on Chris A.C.’s Guest List.

What: Remix Fridays Party at Katra

When: Friday, March 6th, 11pm

Where: Katra - 217 Bowery

WHAT TO DO
New York City Does March

March 3

Congratulations, as a reward for having survived February, treat yourself to a day of carbs in honor of National Pancake Day. Start your morning off right by making yourself a single banana, chocolate chip and pecan pancake, or make your way over to IHOP, where a short stack of pancakes can be yours for the cost of free.99 all day long. If lines aren’t your thing (or, like most New Yorkers, you don’t live close to an IHOP location), head on over to renowned Brooklyn diner Tom’s Restaurant, where you'll have your choice of delicious options ranging from Lemon Riocatta and Sweet Potato to the traditional Silver Dollar style. Spring may be coming, but that doesn’t mean you have to worry about crafting the perfect beach body just yet.

Weekend Pick: Jonathan Peters Birthday Bash at Pacha NYC


Playing the classic club hits you crave, Jonathan Peters is in the building this Saturday, and you know he be allll night. This former Sound Factory Saturday night resident knows a thing or two about fierce beats and how to breathe life back into tired New Yorkers so you best be prepared to party.

Pacha is known for serving up Ibiza realness, so put on your party dress, strap on some heels, come thirsty, and get ready to celebrate the birthday of Jonathan Peters. Tickets are $25, but if you put your name on the guestlist you can get in for cheap before midnight. A dollar saved on admission is a dollar added to the alcohol fund, which is always a fair trade in our book. Do yourself a favor and add your name to the list before you get sucked back into the Internet black hole that you came from.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Feeling Inspired: Roee and Yael Carmel Chat With Joonbug.com About the Evolution of the I Feel Experience

Founded and produced by Roee and Yael Carmel of Carmel Productions, the I Feel Experience was conceived with the notion to offer artistic New Yorker’s an outlet for expression, creativity, and dance-- a place where they could go to immerse themselves in a world free of judgment. For you see, for those that attend these gatherings, I Feel is not just a party—it’s an escape into a world filled with love, brotherhood, and above all, acceptance. I Feel applauds the individual, celebrates their unique gifts, and champions their artistic mind. I Feel is a community where we can at last truly feel free.Back in 2012, creative, uninhibited New Yorker’s seeking to join a community of like minded individuals came together at an intimate venue in the East Village each Friday to emerge themselves in a gathering of self-expression and dance. The beginning of what would soon evolve into one New York City’s most beloved underground parties, these Friday night celebrations were referred to as “I Feel Friday.”
