After over a decade of throwing events all over New York and beyond, Verboten has touched down in Brooklyn at their long-awaited permanent home for quality underground music. The venue is a 10,000 square foot former metal shop in the heart of Williamsburg, featuring two rooms, multiple skylights and futuristic, industrial accents that bring the Verboten aesthetic to life.
We checked out Verboten for the first time when one of our favorite DJs, the legendary Sasha, was playing…and the venue exceeded all of our expectations. Verboten’s cutting edge Martin Audio sound system [including line arrays for live music], acoustic ceiling panels, panoramic video walls, raised seating areas and a sprung wood dance floor [reclaimed from a warehouse once belonging to Thomas Edison], and a groovy, underground vibe like that of its neighboring club, Output NYC, we can’t think of a better stage for Hernan Cattaneo and Guy J to take to the decks in their 5 hour back to back gig set for August 30th.
Known for his love of all music, regardless of genre, South American legend Hernan Cattaneo’s unique ability to weave stories from sounds are also responsible for some of the most celebrated mix CDs of recent years. Back in 2005, it spoke volumes on Hernan’s rising stock that he was hand-picked to succeed DJ legends like John Digweed, Deep Dish and Sasha on the aptly named Masters series. Seizing the opportunity, Hernan’s debut marked him out as a legend in his own right. Widely loved and acclaimed, his individual mix shifted seamlessly through genres and was coloured with both the rich seam of melody and lush lulling groove that his fans have come to love and know him for.
Guy J is a young, much-in-demand DJ / producer whose infectious production talents, busy worldwide touring schedule, electric live shows and groundbreaking debut album on Bedrock have all contributed to the success he’s currently experiencing. Along with a handful of his fellow countrymen, the Israeli is now at the forefront of a movement towards the melody-rich and emotionally charged roots of the House music spectrum. Guy’s productions have earned praise for their tight, driving beats, shimmering, warm synths and blossoming, journey like arrangements. Straddling the lively, timeless space between ambient, house, techno and electronica he constantly maintains a melodic and highly emotive core to his music.
Brad Miller has consistently played alongside some of the biggest names in dance music including Sasha, Gui Boratto, Eric Prydz, Guy J, Chris Liebing, Adam Beyer, Guy Gerber, Paco Osuna, James Zabiela, and Hernan Cattaneo – in addition to being called on by top tier promoters and shows such as the Carl Cox & Friends stage at EDC, Electric Deluxe, Verboten, Made Event, and Dance.Here.Now.
Needless to say…it’s an evening you do not want to miss!

MONDAY GROOOOOVES !!
This is shaping up to be the best show of the summer for the trance family in NYC. The North American leg of Future Sound of Egypt 350 will stomp down at Hammerstein Ballroom on August 9, 2014 with a top class, mind boggling lineup consisting of :
Aly & Fila vs John O’Callaghan
Andy Moor vs Lange
Arctic Moon vs Bryan Kearney
“It’s no mystery why the uplifting titans of Trance professionally known as Aly & Fila, after being unconditionally showered with immeasurable amounts of love and support from New York City over the years, would chose it as the location for the very first Future Sound of Egypt in the United States and the only North American stop of the FSOE 350 tour. And it’s only fitting that Tri-State Area Trance ringmaster Esscala Entertainment would be the one to orchestrate an event of this magnitude, and under the roof of a historical 3,500 capacity venue that has hosted the likes of Eric Prydz and Swedish House Mafia. Based on edm’s track record at Hammerstein Ballroom, FSOE 350 NYC should prove to be an awe-inspiring spectacle of visuals and acoustics complete with global fan support that knows no borders.”

With the addition of “Dollhouse“, remix master Jai Wolf now has had three #1 songs on the HypeM remix charts. Even Skrillex is closing his sets with his “Ease My Mind” remix. The New York based DJ has a way of shaking up songs by keeping the powerful lyrics and building up different vibes around them with his unexpected beats. His version of the talented Melanie Martinez‘s “Dollhouse” is a deep, chill-trap track that you all should bump right now. Keep an eye out for this dude cause Jai Wolf will be taking over, just wait.
Did I mention that Skrillex closed his set in England with Jai Wolf’s remix?!! SO DOPE. (Magical Moment at 56:45)
