We’ve put together a great lineup for this Saturday the 22nd, with sets from GDD™ homies like Wax Motif, Bixel Boys, Craig Williams, and Astronomar, who has put together a killer minimix to give you a taste of his set Saturday night. Download the mix below, and read on for the tracklist and full GDD™ stage lineup.
This weekend, The Wynn in Las Vegas is hosting Porter Robinson‘s official birthday celebration with two epic DJ sets. Porter will be spinning Saturday, July 14th at Surrender followed by a pool party on Sunday, July 15th at the Encore Beach Club. The 19 (almost 20) year old sensation has become famous for keeping his crowds going with a fresh twist on EDM and has already spun at many of the world’s best music festivals such as Coachella and the Electric Daisy Carnival.
His residency at the Wynn is the perfect excuse to make it out to Vegas with some friends this weekend! Tickets for these events can be purchased at surrendernightclub.com and encorebeachclub.com and run at $30 for girls and $40 for guys.
We’ll see you out there!

It was fleeting like a hot hand at the blackjack table, and just like that we were back home in Los Angeles wondering how a hectic weekend in the desert went by so fast. It was Thursday, and I had the grandiose idea of starting the weekend off by catching Richie Hawtin at Drai’s, a dark club in the underbelly of the Las Vegas Strip that played host to some of the biggest names in Techno over the weekend. Word was he wasn’t starting until 4AM, so that left some time for a quick pitstop at Benny Benassi at the Cosmopolitan Hotel’s Marquee Nightclub. Marquee is what Vegas is all about. Scantily glad girls and even more scantily clad employees, and enough energy in the air to get everyone through till morning even without however many Redbull vodkas they may have in their system.

After an excellent first couple of months in 2012, things keep on improving at the premier Las Vegas nightclub, HAZE. The month of March is full of great events with lineups comprised of world renowned artists such as Fernando Garibay, Laidback Luke, Boys Noize, Dave Aude, & Bob Sinclair. Next week, Laidback Luke will be making his return after a massive show over NYE weekend. He’s expected to bring his usual veteran DJ-ing prowess, as well as his high level of showmanship, so we recommend you grab tickets now rather than face the possibility of regret. Check out a video from Laidback’s last visit & pictures from previous events after the jump!
HAZE, the latest venue presented by The Light Group, offers a colossal cutting-edge environment that challenges your sense of perception and reality. The attention to detail put into everything from the plush modern interior to the service and entertainment provides an experience that–when combined with the latest in technology and a one-of-a-kind sound system– provides you with a premier Las Vegas nightlife experience.
Read on for a recap of last week’s event with Dave Aude & Carlos Fauvrelle, the February/March lineup, and a video from Laidback Luke’s most recent show at HAZE. Continue Reading
If you’re an avid reader of GDD™ then first of all, thank you. Secondly, you might remember our recap of the Marquee Las Vegas One Year Anniversary party from the beginning of January. The kind folks at Marquee treated head honcho Jonah Berry and myself to one of the best dinners I’ve ever had, an informative and insightful panel discussion with Marquee resident Tim Bergling, aka AVICII, and one of the brains behind Marquee, Jason Strauss. The video above is just a quick recap (with a special guest cameo by Jonah and myself at 0:33!) with excellent footage from the festivities, where AVICII really had the place going wild.
With pool season just around the corner (launching sometime in April) one can only imagine how the summer is going to shape up at one of the best new venues in the World. Check dates for the Nightclub below, and stay tuned for more news about Marquee in the near future.

Tiësto, who, whether you like it or not, was recently voted “The Greatest DJ of All Time” by Mixmag, has forged an exclusive residency with Wynn Las Vegas daylife and nightclub venues Encore Beach Club, Surrender, and XS nightclubs for 2012.
It was a few short years ago that nightclub impresario Jason Strauss was in Ibiza, chatting with four of his main competitors regarding rumblings they had heard of his next venture. Rumor had it he was opening a nightclub dedicated solely to dance music that would be the 62,000 square foot, 128 times per minute beating heart of a brand new casino in the Las Vegas desert. He confirmed their suspicions…they told him he was out of his fucking mind, but as the saying goes, the great ones normally are. At the time, this simply just wasn’t a successful business model, despite the current budding reputation of Vegas as the new American Ibiza. Clubs were open format, mostly hip-hop, except for a few of the midweek nights. Just last January that new venture became Marquee Las Vegas, and in one short year the club has established itself as one of the premiere nightlife destinations on the planet.
Upcoming projects for Jason and his partners include announcing a new Marquee-brand venue overseas, giving a major facelift for their New York City location, and undergoing a complete overhaul of the Marquee Las Vegas Dayclub for next summer (that will apparently install some infrastructure to allow the outdoor club that’s featured some of 2011′s best pool party line-ups to send flying humans – amongst other things – through the air).
