Today, EDM enthusiasts only have the options of enduring 12 hours of blistering heat for EDC or being stunted on at the doors of nightlife’s most exclusive venues across the nation.Coming almost as a God send to the EDM scene in New York, Jordan Liss and Daniel Reiger of venue tap have launched a series of events that have brought the music back to where it belongs: to the people.
Electric Beach at the Santos Party House is a series of events that immerses club goers in amazing music and great people without the often typical pretentiousness of the nightlife scene.
EDM has deep seated roots in underground scene for decades, but as electronic dance music has ascended into the American mainstream media’s attention over the past three years it has become increasingly difficult to find the remnants of the once thriving underground scene. Long gone is the thriving scene of yesteryear, when Sasha and John Digweed had their residency at Twilo and the underground clubbing scene still bore signs of life
The creators, Jordan Liss and Daniel Rieger, have a 'neighborhood' mentality in contrast to many of the larger, more corporate venues in New York.
“We want fans in New York to remember that they saw their favorite international producer first at Electric Beach…not the eighth time he played New York,” Liss explains.
Notable recent acts have included Mat Zo (NYC Nightclub Debut), Tristan Garner (NYC Debut), and Alex Kenji (NYC Headline Debut). There are also impressive established bookings like dBerrie, Funkagenda and EDX.
If you're into it and are staying local for the weekend, worth a look for sure.
