The largest masquerade ball In North America… Featuring the world’s top electronic artists & performers. Countdown to 2011 with over 5000 Par-Tiers and the biggest dance icon in the world: Deadmau5!
In this world of ever evolving genres, sounds and trends, the word phenomenon is rarely if ever used, unless of course you are the hottest talent in the world of electronic music and your name is Deadmau5.
His sound transcends various genres of music, flirting with techno and minimal whilst hinting at tech house, trance and electro, and a glance at the names supporting his unique sound proves testament to this fact. Sasha, John Digweed, Tiesto, Carl Cox, Dubfire, Eric Prydz, David Guetta, Sander Kleinenberg, Erick Morillo, Laurent Garnier – the list goes on and on.
“Busy, hectic, phenomenal, like a roller coaster, so amazing!” These are just some of the words that high-flying Dutch hardstyle duo Showtek aka brothers Wouter and Sjoerd Janssen use to describe 2010. Performing in the US, Canada, South Africa and Australia as well as their usual dates across Europe, they also cite Asia and particularly South Korea as the place that got switched onto the Showtek sound this year.
Sonny John Moore, also known as Skrillex, is an electronic musician from Los Angeles, California, well known for his role as the former frontman for the post-hardcore band From First to Last.
A multi-talented DJ and artist, Skrillex has made waves with his extraordinary remixes for Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Perry Farrell, La Roux, and HORSE the band, as well as with his own idiosyncratic blend of dubstep, electro-house, and whatever else catches his fancy.
Hailed by ARTISTdirect for a sound “somewhere between the glitch-psychosis of Squarepusher and the catchier than hell dance of Daft Punk,”
