LAVO Las Vegas and Marquee Las Vegas have joined forces with Insomniac Events to host an unprecedented array of the world’s top-tier underground artists for the Las Vegas Loves Techno event series as a part of EDC Week, June 20th – June 24th. This series marks a new era in the Las Vegas music scene as LAVO and Marquee are pioneering the deviation from dance music’s status quo.

By hosting acts such as the Dirtybird label head, Claude VonStroke, the legendary Carl Cox, Sasha, and equally prolific Dubfire, among others, LAVO and Marquee Las Vegas display their all-embracing ideals that establish them as tastemakers with a forward-thinking mentality. They are pushing the boundaries of typical music programming within Sin City to bring something fresh and distinctive to their loyal patrons.

After a number of releases with support from names like Mikix the Cat, Angel Stoxx, Trockensaft, Umek, Dubfire and many more, Dark & stormy brings us a new EP.  As suspected, he delivers full force with this new Ep Dance to This out on Metamimetic Records.

While sticking to his roots and maintaining his signature Tech House and Tropical sound, Dark & Stormy adds a more accessible element to the lead track “We’re Gonna’ Have a Good Time” which is a all out party tune for ANY occasion.  Harkening back to the days of parachute pants and bad hair, this 90′s house stomper brings the heat with a great mixture of 90′s house, Tech House and Hip House.

You know it’s going to be an interesting day when you wake up to the sight of 6:45 am on the clock and you’re exhausted from partying to the sounds of SBTRKT, Laidback Luke, 2manydjs, Fatboy Slim, and Rusko the night before at HARD Haunted Mansion. Early last Saturday morning, my friends and I made our way back to the west side from downtown LA, only to rest and prepare for our journey inland to Insomniac’s first Halloween massive, Escape From Wonderland. See what it was all about after the jump…
