Halloween might be more than a week away, but there’s no reason why you can’t get “Lit” a little early. Head to Drai’s and catch a set by Amsterdam’s Sidney Samson. The DJ recently released his collaborative EP, “Lit,” with Dutch house/trap producer Onderkoffer. The EP is littered with boomin’ 808s and crisp snares. See if the sound system can contain “Through the Fire” or “Firecracker.” And if you’re actually trying to get lit after, the party continues at Drai’s After Hours. If only staff handed out fire extinguishers upon entry … (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m.,

Those Bassjackers boys are at it again. The Dutch electro house duo recently DJ’d in Toronto, hit TomorrowWorld in Georgia, and they’ll hit Las Vegas tonight. Oh, and, yeah, the pair somehow managed to find time to drop a single in the middle of all that touring. They teamed up with Los Angeles producer KSHMR and singer/rapper Sirah on “Memories.” The song features the bumpin’ drums of Bassjackers, melodic tendencies of KSHMR and angelic vocals of Sirah. It might be a lot to take in, but it sure sounds pretty. Don’t believe us? Hear it at Light. (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m.,

“Dirty Dutch” proprietor Chuckie returns to Omnia. The Surinamese DJ is basically the word “creative” exemplified; he’s created a groundbreaking genre, and has consistently released track after track since entering the scene in 2008. Keep an ear out for his latest single, “The Future.” He’s also a tastemaker, so see what’s bound to be hot in the future. If Chuckie kills your vibe, you can check out an open-format set at Heart of Omnia by Fred Matters, because music is what matters most. (In Caesars Palace, 10:30 p.m., Australian exports Stafford Brothers hit Foxtail. Just like the Mario Brothers, the two get some serious airtime when they jump behind the decks. See if their heights can compare to the pixelated partners, especially during the bumpin’ bass of their collaborative single with Rick Ross and Jay Sean, “When You Feel This.” There’s gotta be a way to measure that somehow, right?

As locals, we should always give newcomers a chance. Sure, we’re able to see Tiësto, Calvin Harris and Diplo on a (seemingly) weekly basis, but every once in a while, we get to see a new name spin. Coming all the way from Turkey, Ummet Ozcan works the ones and twos at Hakkasan.  The “sound-designer” is known for crafting 2014’s big room banger “Raise Your Hands.” Do just that when Ozcan mans the decks, and is joined by local DJ/producer/vocalist Mikey Francis. It’s nice to break away from the regulars! (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m., Suit up and head to Hyde for the return of XIV Vegas Sessions. We’re not talking “Suit & Tie,” though (sorry, Justin Timberlake). This party is superhero themed, so break out the spandex, masks and outside underwear for a powered-up extravaganza. Partygoers: Assemble! (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m.,

Cash Cash and Tritonal’s tour, dubbed “Untouchable,” is well under way. The name is fitting since the two acts are hitting 40 cities in the U.S. and Canada through the end of November. The latter hits Marquee to give “Tritonians” another dose of its catchy, melodic progressive house goodness. They’re dropping the “Anchor” and the bass! Check out our interview with one half of the duo, Dave Cisneros, at (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

It’s Tuesday! You know what that means: Commonwealth hosts its midweek rooftop party, Martes. DJ Low rocks the speakers with a set consisting of bachata, salsa, merengue, Latin house, hip-hop and reggaeton, and word on the street is somebody plays a horn over the tunes. It’s the hottest Latin night in town. Ladies enjoy an open bar from 9-11 p.m. Arriba! (525 Fremont St., 9 p.m.,

Since dropping the essential 2014 party banger “Turn Down for What,” French producer DJ Snake has been enjoying a steady ascent: He’s racked up four top 5 singles (with two of them hitting No. 1), and earned two Grammy award nominations. We’ve been digging his bass-heavy trap remix of Aluna George’s already catchy single “You Know You Like It,” and his trap interpretation of Calvin Harris’ “How Deep Is Your Love.” He’s sure to play all of his chart-topping hits and more when he spins at Surrender.
