'The Day After' Festival 2014 Lineup
French DJ Julien Nolan is no stranger to the music world. He started DJ-ing at a very young age and has had the opportunity to mix at clubs around the world. Most recently, he played a fundraiser for President Obama and has mixed for various fashion shows for Chloe and Christian Louboutin.
His most recent undertaking is musical director and resident DJ at Fig & Olive, a restaurant with locations in Meatpacking, Fifth Ave, Lexington Ave, Westchester and two locations in California. The restaurant offers tastes from the coastal regions of France, Italy and Spain, while specializing in olive oil the main ingredient in all of their dishes.
2013 has been more or less controversial for Carnage, who tweeted in May that he would be taking a different direction with his music. Entering the green room of DC's famed 9:30 Club, at least ten people stood around chatting, while the man himself was immediately spotted wearing a black Adidas track suit and sunglasses.
If there’s one thing that the carefree, Chipotle-loving DJ/producer has taught us, it’s that timing is everything. His “festival trap” remix of Hardwell’s “Spaceman” is largely the reason why he is so successful today, but had he released it just a year or two sooner, his career would have played out much differently. “I wouldn’t be here. It’s all about timing and getting your shit right. Knowing when to drop something. A lot of people lose their steam because they didn’t drop anything, or they dropped too much. It’s all about timing and finding a good team to work behind you.”
The anthem to Saturday night's brite nites event at Webster Hall was none other than the mantra, "Eat, sleep, rave...repeat."
Every Saturday night, Webster Hall brings New Yorkers their electrofused brite nites event which features the hottest DJs of the now. On Thanksgiving weekend, the DJs that took over the Main Room with their explosive House styles were Dutch import Jordy Dazz and Swedish DJ Mikael Weermets.
Hoodie Allen’s homecoming show at the famous (and sadly closing) Roseland Ballroom was a rager on Friday night.
Known for his frat boy swag and dance party vibes, a Hoodie show is sure to entertain. The 25 year old Long Island native played to the eager, sold out crowd hits from his various mixtapes and EPs, including crowd favorites “No Interruption,” “Fame Is For A**holes,” and “Cake Boy.”
If you fancy cake and delight in toys that make good noise (aka toytronica), allow us to introduce you to Psapp, the London-based experimental electronica duo, probably best known for the Grey's Anatomy theme song. Carim Classmann and Galia Durant, who recently released their fourth album, What Makes Us Glow, just confided in Joonbug about where they have been, what they have been up to, and what comes next...Earlier this month you released your first LP in four years. What have you two been up to?
This past weekend, Florida hosted the Damage Control Tour as it hit Miami, Gainesville, and Tampa. Mat Zo, along with support from Norin & Rad, delivered quite a performance, and were lucky enough to witness their takeover in Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators.

2013 has been a very big year for the very talented Cedric Gervais; not only did he see much success for his collaboration with Bogore on their hit "Deception," but also, the Lana Del Ray vs Cedric Gervais "Summertime Sadness" remix is his biggest hit to date.
