    The small but growing techno community in Las Vegas has been gaining steam over the past year, with more well known artists of the genre getting picked up for one-off nights in the clubs.

  • About Town

    Residents’ Evil

    By Geoff Carter

    Las Vegas doesn’t have a large native vernacular. We don’t have neighborhoods with native accents and nomenclature. We don’t have insider stuff that we hide from outsiders; we don’t want tourists to think that we’re withholding anything they could spend money on. As a result, whenever a word or phrase finds its way into our vernacular, we tend to use the hell out of it—often incorrectly. “I got a comp.” “This is my Friday.”

    The venture of Milo and Eddie

    By Deanna Rilling

    We’ve repeatedly heard that Vegas is the new dance-music capital of North America, if not the world. Top DJ/producers from around the world are taking over at major nightclubs here. Renowned national and international nightlife brands are planting their flags up and down the Strip. But what about the local turntablists?

  • Electric Destination

    By Mosi Reeves

    "Good morning, Las Vegas!" says Nick van de Wall, better known as Afrojack. It is 1 a.m., but the night still rages at Surrender, a nightclub in Encore. Several hundred revelers have waited two hours for this 23-year-old rising star to appear, chanting “Afrojack! Afrojack!” The warm-up act, DJ Milo “Mighty Mi” Berger, has just finished building anticipation to a frenzy by deftly weaving a contemporary electronic pop mix while dropping remixes and “edits”—old pop chestnuts retrofitted with a post-millennial beat—of classics such as Madonna’s “Holiday.”

    I’m With the DJ

    Five years ago, if you had asked the average American music lover if they listened to house, techno or trance, only a handful—with the exception of DJs, industry folk and electronica die-hards—would have said no. Of course, rock ’n’ roll has reigned for much longer than scratching or Serato have existed. But with the help of Daft Punk and David Guetta in recent years, the BPM has sped up and electronic music has taken over. And nearly every music festival is jumping on board.

    Dainja’s His Name

    He’s as intelligent, composed and straight-edged as they come. But don’t let the bookish demeanor of DJ Dainjazone (a.k.a. Joseph Hampel) fool you. At just 27, this former baseball player, current substitute teacher and aspiring model has the party rock on lock. A fairly new DJ and already you’re signed with the same management as LMFAO. You call yourself the Leader of the New School. Why?
