Walking into Electric Zoo on day 2 was truly like walking into a zoo of young people hungry for electronic music. Randall’s Island was packed like we have never seen it before, and even after an explosive day 1, everyone surrounding us was energetic and ready to rage the day away.
Our first set of day 2 was our man Morgan Page, a classy VT huss who started his EDM career in nightclubs up by the Canadian border. Page is a master at warming up a crowd, and he cleverly started his set off slowly, opening with his “The Longest Road” intro and gliding into Deniz Koyu’s track with Tegan and Sara entitled “Bong”. The set started getting swanky with his catchy choon “Body Work” and every girl’s favorite song off Page’s In The Air album: “Addicted”. Morgan spiced up the set, effortlessly easing our sore muscles from day 1, with Dada Life’s banger “Feed the Dada”. Our personal favorite moment was when he dropped his remix of the classic 80s jam “Your Love” by the Outfield, which had all the girls in their high waisted jorts bopping around like they were getting saved by the bell. We loved that Page closed his set up with a little Ministry of Sound with Tonite Only’s jam “Go”. The set was well thought out and was the perfect balance between club and pop music for the kick start of a day time festival.
After Morgan Page’s massive set, we made our way over to main stage for the set of one of our personal favorite producers, Sander Van Doorn. Sander is a technical genius with an incredibly unique sound that makes you want to dance from dusk til Doorn. Wasting no time, he opened his set with Deniz Koyu’s remix of Zedd’s epic track “Spectrum” feat. Mathew Koma…and we definitely ripped some vocal cords. After that he dropped “Alter Ego” and his tune “Nothing Inside” with Mayaeni. Slipping into the ghoulish Deadmau5 groove “Professional Griefers” and then his classic “Chasin’”, there wasn’t a person in the crowd that wasn’t entranced by his dancing spell. The middle part of Sander’s set comprised of a bunch of songs we’d never heard, with a little Pryda and Afrojack mixed in the mystery choons. Doorn appropriately closed his spectacular set with Firebeatz & Schella’s “Dear New York”, and in true Sander Van Doorn fashion he had the crowd all yelling to each other afterward, “What was that? Trance? Progessive House?….no it was SVD-style.”
After Sander, we got our bananas and champagne and geared up for some full-on DADA Life fun. Blasting off immediately with their destructive banger “Kick Out The Epic Motherfucker”, the crowd at main stage was going absolutely bonkers – tossing blow up balloons all over the place and womping out harder than we’d seen all day. Dada’s remix of Kaskade’s gorgeous track “LLOVE” graced the speakers, and the sing along that ensued was oh-so-sweet. The animals at the zoo got ferocious when Dada Life dropped their remix of Duck Sauce’s “Big Bad Wolf”, and the hard-hitting track by Tiesto & Showtek that followed soon after provided a primo fix to all the hard dance fiends at the festival. Otto Knows’ awesome jam “Million Voices” was a nice break in the set before the hardness ensued again with huge tracks like Ralvero’s “Rage” and Knife Party’s “Rage Valley”. Alesso and Ingrosso’s chune “Calling” led into the closing track of the set, “Feed the Dada”, their original track that the EDM family just can’t seem to get enough of!
The most anticipated act of the day was surely Axwell, especially after the recent break up of Swedish House Mafia, who have dominated the realm of House and Progressive across the globe. We were a bit nervous about how the set would go, but we can honestly report that this set was one of the best we’ve ever witnessed. “Greyhound” never sounded so good, blasting out to us through a 20,000 watt sound system and grooving into a mix mash of Pryda’s “Allein” and Gregor Salto’s “Azumba”. Axwell rolled that into Henrik B. and Rudy’s “Leave a Light On”, and the result was nothing short of orgasmic. His set led us on a journey through time with Swedish house classics and new upbeat tunes, remembering times of old and revelling in the present progression. The highlight of the set for us was SHM’s “Every teardrop is a Waterfall” mixed with his recut club version of “Resurrection”, which he blended into “Beating of my Heart in Sweet Disposition” – a mashup of Matisse and Sadko vs. Temper Trap. The way all these tracks complimented each other was brilliant and fluid. The sound was further complimented by the impressive visual scenes, which comprised of some of the trippiest naturistic images we’ve ever beheld. Axwell wrapped up his mind-blowing set with “Heart Is King” into (you guessed it!) “Save the World”
Above and Beyond, our favorite trance trio, had their work cut out for them following Axwell’s genius performance. Matching the energy of his progressive house domination would be quite impossible, but Above and Beyond offers an entirely different musical atmosphere, connecting with their audiences on an emotional and spiritual level. Transitioning from Axwell’s upbeat house to A&B’s long build ups and euphonic dark drance was exactly what we all needed and wanted. Although some concert goer’s (all the newbies) started leaving after the long build ups lost their attention, a heart-wrenching set is classic Above and Beyond, and anyone who is truly devoted to the EDM scene understands the passionate phenomenon that is their musical identity. Axwell perfected new school, and Above and Beyond brought us back to the old school roots. The tracks were so beautifully meshed together it was hard to get excited about one song in particular, but this Group Therapy session took everyone on an emotional roller coaster ride dropping “On My Way to Heaven”, “A Thing Called love”, and “Sun and Moon”. Words can’t even express the euphoric feelings buzzing throughout the trance family during Andrew Bayers’ “From the Earth”. You would almost think you were hearing two completely different DJ acts going from Friday to Saturday night’s Above and Beyond set. Thank you Above and Beyond for really connecting us all together, moving us beyond reality and giving us a little slice of heavenly peace with another perfect Group Therapy session.

Sander and Julian were first introduced by their record label Spinnin’ Records shortly after signing the 16 year old, who was still in high school at the time. Sander recognized a lot of himself at an early age in the first of Julian’s productions he got to hear. He was very impressed by the quality of Julian’s tracks and wanted to work with the young prodigy as soon as possible. The result after some fruitful studio sessions is Kangaroo, a fast passed high energy electro house banger!
Ever since Sander first spun the record in his Ultra Music Festival set in Miami this year, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding this track. It literally is the most sought after, most talked about and most anticipated track out of Sander’s recent sets.
Kangaroo will be released exclusively at Beatport on Monday August 20
On Saturday July 7th, Alesso threw a birthday bash for the books at Governors Beach Club in New York City. Along with Carl Kennedy, Otto Knows and Arty, Alesso celebrated his 21st birthday properly on American soil to a fully packed Governors Beach Club. Upon arrival, I was very impressed with how tricked up the beach club was with Pacha NYC decorations. Huge balloons of red Pacha cherries, nets of balloons, and birthday streamers adorned the tent’s ceiling, and it was clear to all that this was going to be an epic EDM birthday blowout.
I arrived at the stage just as Carl Kennedy was closing up his set with Calvin Harris’ ‘Feel So Close’, and Governors Beach Club was already more packed than I’ve ever seen it. Refune Records’ newest DJ, Otto Knows, opened his set with Dada Life’s bonerific remix ‘Kick Out the Epic Motherfucker’, elevating the crowd’s energy to spectacular heights right from the onset. Otto continued to pump up the party with bangers like Marcus Schossow’s remix ‘Alright’, Dubvision’s ‘All By Myself’, Swedish House Mafia’s ‘Save the World’, and Hardwell’s mashup of his original track ‘A Million Voices’ vs. One Republic’s ‘Apologize’.
Anjunabeats & Axtone’s young progressive trance star Arty, who is touring with Identity Festival this summer, opened his mind-blowing set with his hit ‘Mozart’, and glided into Dirty South’s ‘Walking Alone’, followed by Sander Van Doorn’s ‘Chasin’. When he dropped an incredible smashup ‘Trio vs. Otherside‘, the sing along that ensued was one of the best I’ve ever experienced and was definitely a beautiful moment with my EDM family that I will never forget. Arty’s original set continued to dazzle the crowd as he dropped his remix of Ferry Corsten’s ‘Punk’ blended with a bootleg of Axwell’s ‘Heart Is King’. Everyone went wild as he blasted Tiesto’s ‘Maximal Crazy’, and he proved that there is truly not a party without Arty when he unleashed his new track ‘Open Space’ upon the revelers.
Alesso made an explosive entrance upon his birthday party with his new track ‘Clash’ amidst a stunning shower of confetti. The dance party got ferocious as he threw Deniz Koyu’s ‘Hertz’ into the mix, blended with the vocals of ‘Paradise’. Bringing his set back to the beginning of his fast road to success, the birthday boy played ‘Nillionaire’ to his adoring crowd. Paying tribute to his SHM mentors, Alesso dropped ‘Greyhound’ and his remix of ‘Save the World’.
Mixing up his set a bit, he tossed in a mashup of his chune ‘Raise Your Head’ and ‘Epic’, providing some birthday bass therapy. My favorite track of his set was Dirty South’s ‘City of Dreams’, which was complimented perfectly by the breath-taking waterfront views of Manhattan. Alesso ended his 21st birthday bash with his remixes of ‘Years’, ‘Titanium’, ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’, and his all-famous ‘Pressure’. He & his party guests had some serious luck as the dark clouds in the sky held out for the entire concert, with the rain only breaking through as we boarded the ferries back home.
All in all we were impressed with Alesso’s set, because even though it was not our favorite from him, let’s be honest it was his birthday and who else can say they were that composed on their 21st ? His Governors Island set was a bit mainstream for our taste, but his Pacha set afterward was much sexier. Alesso is one of our favorite DJs, always bringing an uplifting energy to the House scene, and we cannot wait to see him kill it in the big apple again soon
Thank you Pacha NYC for another fun-filled EDM event!
