When the pages of dance music history are written and researchers try to narrow down which areas are most enriched with music milestones, New York City will certainly be high on that list. From Larry Levan and the infamous Paradise Garage to Twilo and Tunnel, the Big Apple has been one of house music's hot spots long before the national explosion. That being said, there are only a few artists around today that were entrenched in the tight knit community that was the early 'club land' and throughout time they have evolved with the changes in music trends and production technology.
Steve Angello may be one of the hardest-working men in the electronic music industry. The founder and head of the Size Records label, he’s spent the last month assisting with the release of AN21 & Max Vangeli’s debut album “People of the Night,” planning for the label’s upcoming showcase “Size In The Park” at Rumsey Playfield on September 22nd, and most recently debuting his brand-new track “Yeah” on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection.
It was a busy Saturday for music in the Big Apple.
While Identity Festival was taking over Jones Beach with an all-day roster of talent, Pacha NYC was gearing up to host Madeon and Eric Prydz at Beekman Beach Club. And while it’s always good to have concert options, choosing between the 18-year-old prodigy and the 36-year-old mastermind is no easy task for an electro-loving gal... major @ravegrlproblems!
After Pacha NYC released a cryptic set of clues about its upcoming concert last week, Steve Angello confirmed that he and his label Size Records will play a five-hour EDM showcase at Rumsey Playfield in Central Park on September 22nd.
According to an article in Rolling Stone, "Size in the Park" will feature the some of the label's best DJs like AN21 and Max Vangeli, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano, and Third Party.
"I would never have dreamt about playing Central Park," Angello told Rolling Stone. "I saw the subject line in my email – it said 'Size Matters at Central Park.' I didn't even read the email. I just replied 'Yes, I'll take it.'"The announcement followed a weekend of mysterious messages from Pacha via Twitter and Instagram.
Pacha’s summer lineup seems to get better and better each day. From Dirty South’s killer performance last week, to Afrojack’s upcoming “Jacked” concert, the bass-dropping show-stopping music is flowing in with no end in sight.
The club’s newest addition to its summer sessions is Bob Sinclar on July 20. The French DJ is one of electronic music’s staple producers, with roughly fifteen hit-producing years under his belt. Owner of label Yellow Productions and producer of more than 25 hit singles, Sinclar is sure to bring his big-room-house meets electro-disco beats sound to New York’s best EDM club.
History is oft dictated by a few great men—great not always in character, but in their capacity to shape the world around them. As epicenter of the nightlife universe, NYC’s shadowy godfathers of the night are of particular interest. As the minds behind the most successful, exclusive, and profitable clubs of their respective eras, these pioneers have almost single-handedly revolutionized the game.
Spanning the debaucherous, gilded '20s of the Jazz Age, to the current EDM-fueled bacchanals, the men behind the curtain have conceptualized nightlife into the brand it currently is. By marketing exclusivity, affluence, popular music, and atmosphere, these 5 men elevated revelry into an art form—of which they are the maestros.
