As much as I could do without the drive there, the NOS Events Center is truly one of the best all-around venues for a massive dance event that I’ve ever seen. The fine people at Insomniac always manage to get the best out of any space they bring the beats and freaks to, but the combination of massive hangars, outdoor tents, trees and a beautiful lake to watch fireworks in and relax by really can’t be beat in my eyes. Of course, the wise Friedrich Nietzsche once pointed out that “without music, life would be a mistake” and it holds true that the venue would be nothing without the incomparable lineup that Insomniac once again rolled out, stacked top to bottom with heavy hitters and game changers in every genre.

GDD™ sent out solo astronauts into the abyss each day, and ///Bones and myself will be giving you our respective takes on the events of both Friday and Saturday.

Coming off a huge success @ last years festival, Nocturnal Wonderland expanded its schedule to become a 2-day showcase. Friday, although being the shortened lineup of the two having only 3 of 5 stages open, still brought out the big guns with Avicii, Dirty South, Fedde Le Grande and 12th Planet. I got there in time for the end of Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano on the Main Stage, who surprisingly blew me away with (clearly) their big room experience. Followed by back-to-back sets from Dirty South and Avicii, Alice’s House (Main Stage) was erupting in a wave of energy. The monstrous structure that was the Main Stage was overwhelming, but in any case only fitting for what was being heard from its towering sound system.

Best Performance12th Planet

Our main man John Dadzie (Yes, rockin’ our Invert.Tut shirt) knew he had to prove why he was closing the Dubstep/DnB stage, and the 10,000 that flocked to his set were not disappointed. With such a high energy performance and a stage presence that’s unmatched, 12th Planet absolutely set the place on fire. What made this set more mind blowing was that he was mixing bouncy electro house in with the big bassy selections, giving his set a real festival feel. When I asked him afterwards why he was now playing out up-tempo tunes, he told me that True Pseudo (his former project with Flinch) is about to be coming back in a big way.”

I had every intention of getting up and getting my day started bright and early, but we showed up much closer to 6PM as the sun was starting to fade to the west. Undaunted, it was off to Layo & Bushwhacka straight away. The London duo did a great job of getting me in the right state of mind, but feeling a bit antsy and eager to explore it was time to go meet some more party animals over in Alice’s House.

After a quick stop at Sigma, and being disappointed after not hearing a shred of Drum N’ Bass, it was time for some Big Room Haus! The structure that Insomniac now regularly brings in for the Main Stage is absolutely monstrous, and if you feel like getting ravey it’s definitely the place to be. Before I knew it Sebastian Ingrosso was standing behind the decks and the crowd below me was positively exuberant.

Best PerformancePeaceTreaty

This being their last performance as a trio, you could say this was sort of a sentimental pick for ‘Best Performance.’ Fact of the matter though is that the fellas absolutely crushed it to an enthusiastic crowd who passed on the likes of Kaskade and Mark Knight to party with PeaceTreaty.

All in all, Insomniac did a fantastic job as per usual. The comprehensive and detailed approach to party throwing is what got them to the top of the game in the States, and it’s what is going to keep them expanding around the globe in the future. Party on, Wayne.

This June, Scion A/V and Dim Mak are hitting the road with a 17-date tour featuring 6 of Dim Mak’s most promising talents. They’ll be bussing all around the US, starting off June 6th in sunny San Diego, CA and finishing up in Phoenix, AZ on the 27th. For my fellow UCSB kids + alumns, you’d be happy to know that the name of this tour originates from Steve Aoki‘s famous apartment complex (dubbed ‘the Pickle Patch’) in Isla Vista while he was attending the most amazing/ridiculous college in the world.

All of the shows on the tour will cost $5 or less and will feature an interesting, genre-mashing lineup that will make each show as unique as the Dim Mak label. Head on over to the Pickle Patch website for tour dates in a city near you, and get this brand new exclusive from AutoErotique as well as a PeaceTreaty remix preview of Sporty O & Whiskey Pete that comes out tomorrow on Beatport!

In the spirit of today’s hazy festivities, our good buddies Peacetreaty dug into the vault to let us release this exclusive track that the boys made one year ago today, in honor of their first live gig. The drops are pretty big and the samples in it are hilarious and definitely worth a kick back, so light one up and pump this out.

It’s been a long time coming, but what better way to release my newest mix as the exclusive promo for the upcoming Snowball Music Festival – March 4th – 6th in Vail, Colorado. I will be performing along side a phenomenal lineup of electronic acts (just check out the dance music poster at the bottom of this post and get the idea of whats about to happen) and solid indie bands (Flaming Lips, anyone?) I was going to try to include tracks from several of the artists playing the festival but I just have too many other great tunes that I’ve been waiting to unleash on you dirty dancin’ fools. So whether you’re gonna be with us in Colorado destroying the dance tent, or shakin that booty and fist pumping at your computer screen, grab this little doozy and get your dirty on. Oh, and I’ve decided to add the soundcloud player so you guys can listen from work or wherever you need to sneak your cheap thrills in.
