Well that didn’t take long. The DJ roster announcements are in full bloom. Light’s big get for the year is adding Carl Cox for his first-ever Vegas residency to go with plenty of returning talent from the club’s 2013 campaign. Also joining up are GTA, Dirty South, Laidback Luke, Norman Doray, Sultan & Ned Shepard, Don Diablo, Dyro and Dannic.
At 51 and British, Cox definitely bucks the teen-Swede trend you’ve grown so accustomed to seeing any- and everywhere. Cox was a staple in the ’80s rave scene, and continues to host his own Global Radio, syndicated in dozens of countries, including on Sirius.
Plenty of big names from last year return, including Alesso, Axwell, Nicky Romero and Skrillex (though the latter in a non-exclusive capacity–he’s spinning February 1 at XS as well).
The full run of ’14 residents is: Alesso, Andy Caldwell, A-Trak, Axwell, Bassjackers, Baauer, Carl Cox, Clockwork, Dannic, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Dirty South, Don Diablo, Dyro, GTA, Henrix, Hook n Sling, Krewella, Nicky Romero, Norman Doray, Otto Knows, Sandro Silva, Sebastian Ingrosso, Skrillex, Stafford Brothers, Steve Powers, Sultan & Ned Shepard, Thomas Gold and Tony Arzadon.
