BAM! ATB’s DJ set opened with a flash, bang, and boom, as he shouted, “NEW YORK! IT’S GOOD TO BE BACK!” The crowd went wild as he spun his mix of First State and Sarah Howells' “Seeing Stars,” the light show illuminating bits and pieces of a raving crowd while words like “love,” “innocence,” and “dance” rapidly flashed in the background. After a stellar set, the venue went completely black for a of couple seconds, making many uneasy. Could that be it? That wasn’t it. Not even close. The lights came up, and a live band had magically surrounded ATB's DJ booth. Every song from that point on was sung by a different vocalist. Trance vocal superstars like JES,(Together,) Roberta Carter-Harrison, (I Don't Wanna Stop,) and Ramona Nerra (Never Give Up,In And Out Of Love,) had the crowd in a frenzy while they belted out emotional lyrics and danced their sultry moves. The night had gone from a party atmosphere to an EDM star-studded event! So here’s the thing, significant others... We love you, but we’ve chosen ATB!
Starchildren, rejoice! Joonbug recently had the honor of sitting down with none other than trance vocal legend JES before her set with ATB this past Saturday night at The Roseland Ballroom.

Marquee Nightclub New Year’s Eve Weekend
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival has consistently been remarked as the premier Electronic Music festival in the country. With steady competition from Ultra Music Festival , and the multitude of other events that have developed in the past few years, claiming that title is quite a feat. Insomniac’s founder, Pasquale Rotella, has rose through the ranks of California promoters to a point of utmost success. He has absolutely earned his stripes, with the immense scale of his events and consequences this sometimes brings. The risk involved with such massive gatherings as these has made it necessary for Pasquale to impose a new standard for safety at these events, both at the gates and in the festival. In both appearance and functionality, EDC proved to be nothing less than the world-class event that was beckoned for.
