I am so glad that I am no longer in college because the commencement of my summer is now completely dependent on the weather. With that said, it is a lovely 87ºF today in sunny, sweaty Los Angeles, which means it is time to put away the pea coats and bring on the boardies + bikinis. The month of April is now over, and in Las Vegas, pools have opened and day parties are in full swing. If you recall earlier this year, a few of us were lucky enough to head out to the brand new Marquee nightclub in the Cosmopolitan Hotel to do a review of the production and main resident Roger Sanchez. Well, after seeing what they had to offer in January, both aesthetically and musically, the only thing on our minds was splashing around in that pool to some big tunes this summer.

Now, with Memorial Day creeping around the corner with a PBR tall boy in one hand and an American flag bikini in the other, Marquee will be presenting one of the finest weekend nightclub and dayclub lineups on or off the strip. Artists on hand will include Fatboy Slim, Chuckie, Roger Sanchez, Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, ATB, Cedric Gervais, Laidback Luke, Robbie Rivera, and more.

GDD™ will be giving away 2 passes for all Marquee Dayclub and Nightclub ‘United’ events for THE ENTIRE WEEKEND (4 days!). After testing the waters on our Facebook earlier today, it’s clear that many of you will be making the sinful trip out to the desert for the weekend, but for others, this could just be your reason to go. See below for entry details…

To enter to win…
• You must ‘Like’ the Gotta Dance Dirty and Marquee Facebook pages
• Tag both GDD and Marquee in your status mentioning the contest/how badly you want to win/how awesome Vegas is/how awesome GDD is/etc.
• For bonus points, you may tag GDD and include the craziest picture you have of you and/or your friends in Vegas from a past trip. If you’ve never been to Vegas, don’t worry it’s not a requirement. We just enjoy seeing our readers be as wild as us :)

Winner will be announced one week from today, so grab this new Vegas mix on URB from Fatboy Slim to get you ready!


The well known veteran Treasure Fingers (Ashley Jones) has been providing the beats in clubs for over a decade now, firstly as part of the drum & bass group, Evol Intent and now solo as Treasure Fingers. The man is known for his groovy basslines, melodic synth lines and a disco feel that certainly has become staple in the EDM scene.

And if your a fan, then I have a gift for you…

Treasure Fingers Spring 2011 mix was recorded live in good ole England. The mix is exactly what you would expect from the disco giant, packed full of danceable grooves, some good grit and an overall flow that has become hard to achieve in today’s scene.

Don’t forget to catch Treasure Fingers live poolside at The Love Festival Las Vegas at the Palms Casino Resort on Memorial Day Weekend!

In January, a few core members of the GDD™ crew ventured into the Nevadan desert in pursuit of higher levels of party. Vegas was our destination, and we were there on *coughs* business, to review Marquee, the brand new super-club from the TAO group. Marquee’s inside the Cosmopolitan, a brand new hotel and casino on the Strip, and opened on New Year’s Eve with a Subliminal Session from Erick Morillo, alongside cameos from Jay-Z, Kanye West and members of Coldplay. As expected from both Vegas and the TAO group, no expense has been spared with this incredible venue which boasts one of the most impressive residential lineups outside of Ibiza, including:
Above & BeyondATB / BT / Chuckie / Cosmic Gate / Dirty South / EC TwinsErick MorilloGareth EmeryKaskadeMarkus SchulzRoger SanchezSander Van Doorn,  each joined by a grip of outside talent. Continue Reading
