SWEDISH HOUSE MAFIA
Deciding what to do for New Years is really all a matter of preference. Everybody has that one friend who never goes out because they either spend it at home with their family, or have a bedtime of about 10pm no matter the occasion, and then they have those other friends who won't settle for anything less than a luxury rooftop with a view, even though it's the dead of winter and ain't nobody got time to be basking in bottle service after Christmas shopping. For those of you stuck somewhere in the middle between these two extremes, specifically the ones who want to enjoy the music just as much as the atmosphere, Joonbug.com has got your New Years Eve party solutions right here. You see, we are bringing you the hottest DJs at the hottest venues in your city.
We're sure you've heard of the saying, "When it rains, it pours." Well, guess what? American Electronic dance music producer and DJ, Audien, is currently living it right about now. Firstly, as Grammy nominees were announced, Audien, a.k.a. Nathaniel "Nate" Rathbun, was nominated for Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical, for his mix of Bastille's "Pompeii." Of course, the nomination didn't come as a surprise to any of his fans because the track was the most played at this year's Electric Daisy Carnival and Coachella, and on the Top 5 played list at TomorrowLand 2014.
Laidback Luke is not your average DJ or producer. Some might be so bold to suggest he not even human, but instead a super-human force here to save dance music from, and we'e not just saying that because he likes to dress up like a hero and host some of the most amazing parties anyone has ever seen. It takes a lot of courage to dress up like a superhero in front of thousands of people when it's not Hallowween, but it takes even more courage to pioneer something like Super You & Me, while holding down the fort as one of the most technical DJs still in the game.
