This was no typical Saturday in Central Park. The Upper East Side was about to get christened by rave kids of all kinds and most importantly, by 1/3 of the Swedish House Mafia, Mr. Steve Angello. He brought his expertise in doing what he does best to the Size Matters event and put on one of the most memorable EDM shows New York City had seen the entire summer.
Rumsey Playfield was home to the sold out, 'Size In The Park,' with Steve Angello headlining along with mates from his Size Records, Third Party, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, AN21 and Max Vangeli. Making their NYC debut, Third Party dropped a lot of their own tracks including, "Thank You," feat. Loleatta Holloway and their remix of The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, "Otherside." An impressive set to say the least, Sunnery and Ryan created an elaborate tone playing funky house tracks that no music lover could deny. They dropped classics like Joe Brunning's "Now Let Me See You Work," and the most refreshing bootleg of the whole set, Hardwell's "Spaceman" vs. Ultra Nate's "Free.” After, AN21 and Max Vangeli hit the stage shining with a set heavy on beats with original tracks like, “People Of The Night,” (feat.Tiesto) and "Fresh Start."
It’s all about good genes, at least for the Josefsson family - last name of Swedish sensation Steve Angello and his younger brother AN21.
And as Angello spent his summer jetsetting around the world on the SHM finale tour, baby bro was holed up in the studio with his production partner Max Vangeli working on their debut “People of the Night.”
The album has yet to announce an official release date, but fear not melodic-house fans - AN21 and Max Vangeli have released a “People of the Night” 15-minute Album Teaser Mix to fulfill all of your electro-magic cravings.

The venue was filled with partygoers all ready to dance off their Thanksgiving dinners and leftovers, at the prestigious New York City spot.

AN21(born Antoine Joseffson), the brother of Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello, has been working alongside Max Vangeli for the past year caught up with us before getting into the booth at Pacha to tell us a little bit more about themselves and their upcoming projects. Vangeli, named one of the "Top 5 DJs to watch in 2011" by the Top 100 DJ poll on DJMag.com, and AN21 have taken over clubs worldwide with remixes of Swedish House Mafia's Save the World as well as Pendulum's The Island. Both anticipating the gig, they gave the crowd one of the best sets in which I have seen them, if not the best. Feeling the vibes of the club rocking to the music, AN21 even attempted (and succeeded!) in crowd-surfing throughout Pacha's main floor! Definitely a night for the record books, as per usual, at Pacha NYC.
