MTV named Nicky Romero an EDM artist to watch in 2012 and our eyes have been glued to the Dutch DJ ever since. So when he announced he’d be making his debut performance at Space Miami last Saturday, we jumped on the opportunity to check out the young star in action.
Brought into the electronic music world by mentor David Guetta, the 23-year-old Dutch superstar has already made an impressive name for himself as the next progressive-electro wonderboy. The rising star spent 2012 producing 14 hard-hitting and well-received singles, touring the nightlife metropolises of the world, and topping it off with a Miami New Year’s Eve weekend concert we’ll never forget.
It’s time for another euphoric trip down the rabbit hole with Nocturnal Wonderland Southern California.
After last year’s first SoCal edition of the festival proved highly successful, Nocturnal Wonderland will return to San Bernardino on September 21 and 22 with a lineup that will make your head spin.
The roster for the two-day event is eargasmic, jam-packed with melodic sounds from more than 100 different artist and performers, mind-blowing art installations and explosive fireworks.
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.
JES, the reigning queen of Rocktronica and the woman responsible for so many of your favorite trance hits, is constantly evolving. Her musicianship, often overshadowed by producer’s bass lines and synths, is where her heart beats the loudest.

A multi-lingual singer/songwriter, pianist, guitarist, radio host, DJ and all-around entertainer, JES has proved that girls really run the world. And if her ever-growing resume doesn’t impress you, her beautiful soul without a doubt will.
