Tritonal At Create Nightclub 11/1/14

I'm a big fan of Tritonal and when I got the announcement that they will be playing at my favorite club - Create Nightclub, I was more than thrilled! I bought the tickets right away and anticipated the day that I will be seeing them. So the day finally came, I went with my crew. Now let me just say a little something about Create Nightclub. I have been coming to this club quite a lot and yesterday I was randomly reading some comments on Yelp, most were good reviews but a number were complaining about how strict they were about the name registered on the tickets and how expensive the drinks were. First of all, I like the fact that they are very strict about checking ID's and names registered on the tickets, it prevents scalping. About the drinks, if you can't afford it, don't go clubbing besides nobody is forcing you to drink so just don't drink if you don't have the money for it. I can't believe that some are even complaining about the door man being picky. I like the fact that they are picky with people, yes I like being in a club where people are well dressed and can afford to be there. I like the fact that security is strict because we don't want the club turning into a pot of mayhem. For people complaining about ticket prices at the door, ticket prices do go up after 11pm so if you want to get in hassle free, buy your tickets online, they're much cheaper ( on my blog, yes :) ) dress up, head on to the club before 10pm WITH the person who bought the tickets, bring your proper ID's and bring cash if you want to drink, there is a minimum for credit/debit purchases. If you have never been to Create, parking is conveniently located beside the club, you'll see signs with a 10 on it, meaning $10 per parking, yes I didn't know that at first. You won't see a sign outside that says Create, but if you come before 10pm you will see a place with graffiti on the wall (in between the parking space and a shop, I think) there will be a bunch of gentlemen in suits and you'll see the Create logo on the wall. After 10pm, they have a black curtain over the block before the lines to the club. Anyway, back to Tritonal. The resident DJ played from 10pm to 12:30am then Tritonal took over from then until 2:30am. The set was amazing, they played all their tracks and some additional remixes, one that I can't forget is the remix of Wonderwall by Oasis. Of course once they played one of their most recent tracks, Anchor, everyone just went crazy. This DJ duo really knew how to hype up the crowd, everyone was jumping and dancing to their tunes. A great plus for that evening was daylight saving, boy were we happy realizing it was only 1:30am when we got out of the club. Well, I'll leave you guys with some photos and videos from that night, enjoy! P.S. sound quality of the videos suck, I'll work on that next time I promise.

New Music: Calvin Harris - Slow Acid

Wow, something very very different from Calvin Harris. This new track, Slow Acid is like Bassnectar meets Daft Punk meets Chemical Brothers...I know stay with me here. When I got the notification that he released a new track I was expecting the usual vocal mixed tracks that he usually makes. When I listened to it, I had to check if I had clicked the right track because I did NOT expect this from him. This track is said to be the the 4th single in his new album set to be released in November. With this track sounding awesome like this, I can't imagine what the new album will be like! I'll keep you guys posted.

Tracked Tracks Of The Week, Avicii - The Days, Steve Aoki - Neon Future.1 Album Review

As promised, I give you guys another set of tracks this week. Some of the these tracks like The Chainsmokers' #Selfie were released a while back, but I thought I'd still put them on the playlist. I also got to listen to Avicii's new single with UK singer Robbie Williams, I am pretty disappointed with this one. It sounds very pop even though he said he's going with a more "rock" theme on the next album. I don't quite know where Avicii's going with this one, but hey he's always known to be experimenting on new sounds and they usually turn out good so I'll wait and see what the rest of the tracks will be like for his new album set for spring of 2015. I'm sure a lot of you have also heard about Avicii taking some time off due to health reasons, mostly due to drinking. He has lost quite a bit of weight, mostly because he continued to work even after surgery to remove his gall bladder. We wish him all the best and a speedy recovery. Meanwhile, he will be replaced at Escape Hallow's Eve by Armin Van Buuren which I think isn't a bad deal at all if you've already bought the tickets. Here's Avicii's latest single "The Days".

Steve Aoki - Neon Future. 1

Wow! Steve Aoki, with his new album released September 29, 2014, the collaborations are creative, the album did not sound redundant at all. Very club-like, party style sounds, cake throwing theme, in other words, very very Steve Aoki. My personal faves include tracks #2, #3 (with Fall Out Boy, who knew that would work out?) and #9. You can listen to the entire album on Spotify or purchase it on iTunes and see for yourselves. Steve Aoki will be on tour starting on October 10, 2014, for a complete listing click here.

Well that's all for now, 'til next week. Hope you guys enjoy the tracks, you can listen to these tracks on the go by downloading the Soundcloud and Spofity app and adding my playlists. Don't forget that you can also connect with me by following me on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Soundcloud and Spofity, just click the links on the side of my blog.

Album Review: Porter Robinson - Worlds

Porter Robinson released his second album Worlds on August 12,2014 and it did not disappoint. Following the success of his previous album Spitfire in 2011, Porter Robinson takes electronic dance music to another level. Listening to the entire album was definitely not a bore, I did not just listen to it once, I listened to it over and over and over again. There is only one other album that had me doing that: Avicii's True. Honestly, if I have to compare both, Porter Robinson's album is better. Unlike EDM albums that have been released lately (let's not get specific with genres and subgenres here, don't be sensitive), every track here sounds and feels different from one another, in other words it's not redundant. At only 22 years old, this DJ from North Carolina is already topping charts. I can't simply pick a favorite track because I'm loving all of them, but I guess I have to pick 2...that would be Flicker and Fresh Static Snow. I'm not surprised he made Flicker, being a "Japanophile" and all. He is currently on Tour and will be in LA on September 13, 2014 and in Pomona on September 14, 2014. For a complete listing click here. Let me know what you guys think, Tweet me and don't forget to also follow me on Instagram: @emdeeedm
Enjoy the weekend!
