Pacha New York has become a staple venue for renowned DJs to spin for the night. From DJs like Avicii to Laidback Luke, Paul Oakenfold to Mat Zo, nothing says you've made it as a world class DJ quite like getting to feel the enigmatic New York City club vibe from the dance floors of Pacha. Celebrating their 8 year mark in the New York City nightlife scene is nothing short of a momentous step for Pacha New York's co-owner and President, Eddie Dean.
We snagged an exclusive interview with the nightclub honcho, and he shared what it's like to be behind the successful Pacha name, and his grattitude for the fans who have kept Pacha NYC running for so long.
There's a lot of competition among event production companies in the NYC party scene. How do you set yourselves apart? We try and always have at least one element of an event that you would never see at another event. For instance at our Halloween event that just past, we had all the lights/sound go off at 1am. Then after 15 seconds they turned back on and there were 4 actors being raised above the stage in nooses, kicking and screaming for there lives and spitting up blood. We've had zipline rides over the DJ booth, Luchador wrestling matches, old fashioned hay rides, and aerial ninja battles above the crowd just to name a few. How did you choose the name BangOn! ? When the cops and fire department are trying to shut you down, and your credit cards are maxed out, and the power to go out because people are having sex on you power cords, and you cant pay your rent because you spent it on a party, and someone covered in chocolate falls off a zipline into the crowd, you just have to Bang On! What is/are your dream venue(s) for a BangOn! event? Our dream is to always find new and exciting venues with unique features that we can vibe and build off of. We have used churches, movie studios, old boxing gyms, and abandoned grain silos just to name a few. What are the biggest challenges you face when setting up an event? Real estate! Its the one thing that every New Yorker has a horror story of....landlords overcharge you, rip you off, lie cheat, steal....but you gotta deal with them if you want to find a unique venue! To be fair we have found some awesome warehouse owners, but usually they end up renting out the space to parties that are not run well and the venue has to shut down soon after. What was it like winning the Best Promoter of 2013 from Paper Magazine? Lame! We got all dressed up and Drunk as shit and they wouldn't let us give a speech! What a load of shit! How do you come up with the themes for each event? A table, a couple chairs, whiskey, beer, the internet, pissing ourselves laughing. Is BangOn! your full-time job? If not, what do you do? We all have our own art pursuits: Tim - Golden Pony Gene - Part owner of a video production studio, photographer Brett - Film Director/Cinematographer, Art Curator You recently held Elements, an event you billed as an outdoor music festival. Can you tell us more about how that project got started, what challenges you faced putting it together, and what you learned from it? We've been wanting to do an outdoor fest for a while, and that is the direction want to go in the long run, where we have unlimited room for creativity. It was really difficult with the permits, and massively nerve racking with rain forecasts. We learned Outdoor fests cost nearly double what indoor ones do! I noticed the Thunder Gumbo art car in a few pictures at Elements. Are you affiliated with that Burning Man camp? Yes! Brett is a founder of Thunder Gumbo Final question: peanut butter or Nutella? I'm from a blue collar suburb, American as shit! Peanut Butter. Be sure to catch the next BangOn!NYC event coming to a Brooklyn near you!
For over a decade, Biz Martinez has put together some of Miami's most memorable parties. This Thursday, South Beach's crowned jewel, LIV nightclub, prepares to celebrate the birthday of its music director, with the aid of Dutch superstar Nicky Romero, for the second year in a row.
Opening the show is producer Don Diablo - you may know him from his 2012 hit record "Light's Out" featuring Angela Hunte, and his work as an ambassador for Dance4Life. He's been making bounds in the music world since and we couldn't imagine a better act to lead us into Romero's signature high-octane and unpredictable sets. We're curious to hear what the Dutch powerhouse have in store for us, whether its full-throttle electro or some of the tech-ier sounds they've explored in the past.

A clause dispute has caused owners to transform a once luxury supper-club into a full-scale nightclub. The Darby, which used to serve such celebrities as Jay Z and Leonardo DiCaprio, will be moving from its original West 14th Street location to make way for one of New York's highly anticipated hotspots. In its place will be the still unnamed club which features two floors, bottle service, live musical performances, and an upscale clientele, much in the likes of its previous incarnation.Verboten Club If you think Williamsburg has too many nightclubs, think again. One of NYC's most popular dance music and club promoters will be building a mega-club. With two rooms, the venue will be able to house more than 700 bodies in total, and the company expects their "techno programming" to attract "music fans, Europeans, hipsters, freaks, party girls and industry types" all under one roof.
