Some Of The Best DJs and Nightclub Shows At The 2023 Las V…


If you’re an international headline DJ and you’re not playing the 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix…are you really an international headline DJ?

That’s a legitimate question given the DJ lineup for Formula One’s return to Sin City November 15-19. It’s like an EDM music festival on the scale of Tomorrowland or EDC taking place concurrently with an F1 race week. But all of the shows are found at clubs and venues around The Strip i.e. the actual F1 racetrack. There is far more music than anyone could possibly see, as so many of the shows will take place simultaneously. In the interest of maximizing your time and making good choices, here is my top-10 list of shows I want to see, along with the full schedule should your musical preferences vary from mine.

1. Calvin Harris plus Diplo and Dom Dolla, Saturday, November 18th at XS Nightclub

The most important thing to note about Saturday evening shows is that they’ll take place during and directly following the race, which will go from 10:00pm until about midnight. So we’ll carry the excitement of watching F1 cars top 200mph on The Strip—with hopes of an upset by Ferrari, McLaren or Mercedes—right into the clubs. The headliners won’t take the stage until about 1:30am, so there will be plenty of time to sort yourself out and get there.

My top pick is an incredible trio that brings the most DJ star power for any single show of the week. While Calvin Harris is the elder statesman and Diplo has been crushing for more than a decade, Dom Dolla is the Oscar Piastri of this group with recent hits and remixes including Eat Your Man, Rhyme Dust and Miracle Maker that most house DJs are currently dropping in their sets. Perhaps we’ll be treated to a guest appearance by Nelly Furtado if she’s attending the race. With this much talent on stage, the show will likely last well into Sunday morning.

XS Nightclub is located in the Wynn Las Vegas, which faces the F1 track at the corner of Las Vegas Blvd. and Sands Ave. This is certain to be one of the premier locations for the entire Grand Prix week.

2. Fisher, Friday, November 17th at Hakkasan

Saturday’s qualifying takes place at 12:00am, which really means it’s happening Friday night in Las Vegas time. The entire F1 schedule is time-shifted for Vegas. This will wrap up at about 1:00am, and if this session is anything like what we’ve seen this season, it will be the highlight of the weekend. Who would I want to see after an epic qualy session, where McLaren takes pole? The Fish.

I saw Fisher play at Tao Beach earlier this year. It was just following the Aussie DJ/producer’s release of Take It Off. This smash hit has since become one of the EDM songs of the summer for 2023. Fisher’s been dropping it at shows from Ibiza to Bali and New York City with sold-out crowds chanting the lyrics back to him. He’s also been playing Wuki’s Sunshine (My Girl) remix, a killer “Somebody That I Used to Know” remix and his most recent hit release, Atmosphere. Fisher’s shows are too much fun to miss.

Hakkasan is located at the MGM Grand, which is just south of the F1 circuit. This could make it easier to access than those on the course, though we won’t know for sure until we get there. Just be sure to use the dedicated Hakkasan entrance to avoid the casino.

3. Tiësto, Saturday, November 18th at Zouk Nightclub

This next DJ needs no introduction, as the dude has 40 million monthly listeners on Spotify. But he’s playing one of the newer Vegas nightclubs on Saturday night (Sunday morning) following the race. Zouk is located at Resorts World, which is the newest mega hotel on The Strip with three different properties in one: The Conrad, Hilton and Crockfords. You’ll find it to the north of the actual F1 race track, which comes down Sands Ave. and makes a left onto Las Vegas Blvd. I’ve yet to see a show here, but the venue looks impressive with state-of-the-art sound, lighting and effects.

Tiësto’s catalog is so deep that he could play all of his own work for a two-hour set, and that would just be the hits. I’d be looking for him to drop fresh takes on Hot In It, Lay Low and his recently released BOTH…along with his remixes of Bittersweet Goodbye and Doses & Mimosas.

4. Steve Aoki, Thursday, November 16th at Omnia

Steve Aoki has had a Tao Group residency for as long as I can remember, and he knows how to rock the Omnia space as well as anyone. Located at Caesars Palace, this happens to be the best nightclub venue in Vegas, mostly due to its famed chandelier and all the lights and effects it generates to complement the music.

Formula One cars will hit The Strip for the very first time on Thursday night at 8:30pm for the first practice session (FP1), and the second practice (FP2) will follow at 12:00am. They’ll be driving right in front of Caesars—in about fourth gear—after making the turn off of Sands Ave. Practice will wrap at about 1:00am, and Aoki will likely take the stage from the opening DJs between 1:30am and 2:00am.

5. Swedish House Mafia, Friday, November 17th at XS Nightclub

Update: This show is no longer on the schedule.

6. Major Lazer, Friday, November 17th at T-Mobile Zone at Sphere

In addition to late-night shows happening in Vegas nightclubs, there are a handful of prime-time shows being hosted and promoted by the Las Vegas Grand Prix and F1. The primary venue is the T-Mobile Zone at Sphere, which is at the corner of Sands Ave. and Koval Ln. i.e. Turn 10 on the F1 track.

Major Lazer, which is the DJ/producer trio led by Diplo, is scheduled to take the T-Mobile stage at 10:00pm on Friday, which follows the third practice session (FP3) and sets us up for qualifying later in the evening. Entry to this show is included with F1 tickets. There will likely be a VIP area, but those details are not available at press time.

7. Martin Garrix, Friday, November 17th at Omnia

The Dutch sensation Martin Garrix played an incredible show at the Fontainbleu Miami Beach during the Miami Grand Prix earlier this year, so he’s no stranger to playing F1 events and will certainly be pleased that fellow countryman Max Verstappen has already wrapped up his third consecutive drivers’ title. Playing at Omnia on Friday after qualifying is an ideal way to celebrate.

Notable tracks to look for include the singalong classic High On Life, along with more recent hits like Hurricane and his hard-hitting remix of Cocoon with 070 Shake. All under the iconic Omnia chandelier.

8. RÜFÜS DU SOL and Black Coffee, Sunday, November 19th at XS Nightclub

Assuming I have any energy left and plan to stay until Monday, this is where I’ll be Sunday night after I’ve recovered from Saturday’s insanity. The trio that is RÜFÜS DU SOL is exactly what we’ll need to cap off the week with grooves like You Were Right, Underwater and Treat You Better. The vibe of South African house music DJ and producer Black Coffee is quite similar. His big hit Drive and others like Never Gonna Forget and Ready For You are an ideal recipe for wrapping up the inaugural Vegas GP week at The Wynn’s XS Nightclub.

9. Loud Luxury x Nelk Boys / Happy Dad, Friday, November 17th at Marquee Dome

It’s been more than two years since I interviewed Canadian DJ duo Loud Luxury. Andrew and Joe have been on a tear since then, landing their own show on Sirus/XM’s BPM and playing some of the biggest festivals and clubs on the international circuit. Afterparty and If Only I are two big hits they’ve released since their masterful remix of Sunroof.

Loud Luxury was recently tapped to open the new Marquee Dome at The Cosmopolitan. This is a day club in the summer months and will go year-round thanks to, well, a dome. But not just a glass roof. The 23,000-square-foot orb pumps out two million BTUs of heat to recreate a typical 90-degree spring day in Vegas. So the dress code of bikinis and board shorts still applies. This show starts at 11:00am on Friday, which fits nicely in between the second and third practice sessions.

10. Marshmello, Wednesday, November 15th at XS Nightclub

The 2023 Las Vegas Grand Prix festivities officially kick off on Wednesday. Which is not normal. Whether in Monaco or Abu Dhabi or Miami, the action doesn’t really get started until Friday night. Even Thursday nights in Austin, renowned for its nightlife scene, is just a bunch of team employees and F1 insiders going out on Sixth Street. But the Vegas GP is the biggest party of the year, and the place to be on Wednesday night is XS Nightclub to see the masked legend Marshmello.

With more than 53 million monthly listeners on Spotify, his music should be familiar to pretty much everyone…especially hits like Stars, FRIENDS and Alone. Just be sure to save energy for the rest of the week, because there’s a long way to go to Sunday.

    CRAIG BROWN: Now that’s what I call a money-spinner… The…


    There was a time, not all that long ago, when you could easily tell a businessman from a rock star.

    There was a clear divide. Businessmen wore suits with navy blue or regimental ties; bowler hats, too, in my father’s day. If they had any hair, they kept it short and neat. They carried briefcases and umbrellas. They looked like Mr Banks in Mary Poppins, commuted to work by train and relaxed at the weekend by playing golf.

    Rock stars, on the other hand, wore T-shirts and frayed jeans. Their hair was long. They looked like Rasputin, travelled by private jet and relaxed by driving smart cars into hotel swimming pools.

    Nowadays, the division is blurred. Businessmen want to be rock stars, and rock stars want to be businessmen. Richard Branson started the rot. Like an undercover agent, he combined the hard-headed accountancy skills of a businessman with the outward hippy-dippy appearance of a rock star (long hair, jeans, no tie).

    Around the same time, a canny new generation of rock stars began to twig that their money was better off in investments than at the bottom of hotel pools. In 1992, Bono and The Edge from U2 purchased the two-star Dublin hotel The Clarence and transformed it into a luxury five-star hotel. Hey presto! The money rolled in.

    David Solomon, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, has been disc-jockeying in his spare time

    David Solomon, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, has been disc-jockeying in his spare time

    In 2004, they started a private equity firm, Elevation Partners, investing in Facebook among many other things. It is now reckoned that Bono and The Edge have made more money through more than a £1 billion worth of investments than with their music.

    Before long, every smart rock star had turned into an entrepreneur, investing in tech companies, property, fashion and hotels.

    Golf, once the preserve of the businessman, is now played by an increasing number of rock stars. Alice Cooper, Roger Waters and Justin Timberlake are all keen players. Willie Nelson plays with Mick Fleetwood in Hawaii, and even Bob Dylan has been spotted on a golf course in Malibu.

    Meanwhile, businessmen have grown ever more keen to look hip and trendy. They like to wear baseball caps and hang out with hipsters. Elon Musk dates Hollywood actresses and has even released his own dance track. To put it simply, Mr Banks has taken to wearing a leather jacket and headphones.

    But has it all gone too far? For quite a few years, David Solomon, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, has been disc-jockeying in his spare time. Under the name DJ D-Sol, he has been spinning electronic dance records in Manhattan, in tiki bars in the Bahamas and at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago.

    How’s it going? Back in 2019, the Financial Times reported that the board of directors of Goldman Sachs were uneasy about DJ D-Sol’s decision to perform at Tomorrowland, a Belgian music festival known for its heavy drug taking. The following year, he DJ-ed at an event in the Hamptons whose organisers were criticised for flouting social-distancing rules.

    This week, Goldman Sachs announced that their net earnings had fallen by a third, year on year, in the last quarter. Reports say it has been ‘a challenging period’, which is corporate-speak for ‘dreadful’. Last year, Solomon took a pay cut of almost 30 per cent to $25 million.

    Solomon’s backers at the bank argue that his DJ-ing has never distracted him from his day job. ‘David hasn’t publicly DJ-ed an event in well over a year, which we have confirmed multiple times in the past,’ says a Goldman Sachs spokesman. But it’s hard to overlook the weaselly ‘publicly’ in that statement: it allows for Solomon being a DJ at any number of private events.

    Anyway, the long and the short of it is that most people still want their bankers to look serious, perhaps even stuffy. ‘What started as a colourful side hustle that softened Solomon’s public image became a lightning rod for criticism of him inside Goldman from bankers disgruntled over strategic mis-steps and lower pay,’ reports the FT.

    So Solomon has agreed to hang up his headphones and act more like Captain Mainwaring. But is this the end to businessmen acting as rock stars and rock stars acting as businessmen? My guess is that, from now on, businessmen will be obliged to return to stuffiness.

    Rock stars, on the other hand, will be able to do what they want. It may be unfair, but, then again, when was life ever fair?

    Paris Hilton teases electrifying return with ‘Lighter’ mus…

    Paris Hilton teases electrifying return with ‘Lighter’ music video

    Paris Hilton, the iconic reality TV star and entrepreneur, has unveiled a tantalizing sneak peek of her upcoming music video for her latest track, Lighter. The song is poised to mark her return to the music scene after a 17-year hiatus since her debut single, Stars Are Blind.

    The celebrity socialite took to her social media platforms to share the exciting news, expressing her enthusiasm for ‘Lighter.’ Paris debuted the song at the illustrious Tomorrowland music festival, and now fans can anticipate the full video release. 

    In the sneak peek footage, Paris Hilton showcases her musical prowess as she grooves to the infectious, techno-driven rhythm of Lighter. The video captures her in a studio setting, passionately belting out the lyrics in her unmistakable style. 

    Sporting her signature long, white-blonde locks, she exudes elegance and charm while dressed in a dazzling white dress. Additionally, Paris dons a striking periwinkle gown with a slightly distressed appearance, further adding to her trademark glamour.

    In her Instagram caption, she revealed the song’s underlying message: “This one is for everyone needing to drop that unnecessary baggage, trust us you’ll feel Lighter.”

    Notably, the video teases a fascinating alteration in Paris Hilton’s voice, reminiscent of her previous musical endeavors. However, her true vocal tone shines through as she effortlessly navigates the melodic composition, switching between coos and whispers. 

    Paris Hilton has been on a media blitz this week, actively promoting her latest musical venture alongside her collaborator, Steve Aoki. The duo has been making appearances and conducting interviews in New York City, fueling the excitement surrounding ‘Lighter.’

    Steve Aoki and Paris Hilton tell us about new collab ‘Ligh…


    Steve Aoki and Paris Hilton have joined forces for new collaboration ‘Lighter’. Check it out below along with our interview with the two artists.

    Back in July, the duo took the stage during Aoki’s headlining set at Tomorrowland 2023 in Belgium to debut the unreleased track, the latest single to be released from his upcoming eighth LP ‘HIROQUEST: Double Helix’. ‘Lighter’ features an infectious beat with Hilton’s smooth voice singing the anthemic chorus: “I feel lighter without you / I feel lighter without you / take a sip and then you fade / up, up and away / I’m not coming down soon / I feel lighter without you.” 

    The producer told us how the creation of ‘Lighter’ has been a “momentous occasion for both of us” with the track being a “Culmination of our shared experiences and creative energies.”

    “This is definitely a bucket list thing,” Aoki told NME. “After being friends for so long, we finally have a song together! I’m glad to happen around this one too, it perfectly came together.”


    Hilton added: “It was definitely meant to be in this moment, with this song and everything. After so many years of friendship, so many memories, so many fun nights, we now have our song that we could play when we’re out.”

    NME caught up with the duo to chat about their decades long friendship, creating the track, avoiding burnout, what the future holds, and Aoki’s cake-throwing antics.

    Hi Steve and Paris. You guys have been friends for over two decades. Why did it now feel like the right time to collaborate on a track?

    Aoki: “Anytime I work with any artists, friends, whatever it might be, it has to be the right song. When I heard ‘Lighter’, I immediately visualised Paris on the song. It was perfect. Part of my job as a producer is knowing who would fit well when I have a song, so with this one, I was hoping that Paris would love it.”

    Hilton: “I immediately loved it right away. I was so excited because our friendship spans over two decades and I am such a huge fan of his music. Every time I’d see him play at a festival or anywhere, I’d be like, ‘Bro, we have to do something together’. So when he called me with the song that Emily Warren (Dua Lipa, Charli XCX) wrote, I was blown away.

    “I’m a huge fan of Warren’s as well. She’s so brilliant. We went right into the studio and recorded it. It has been so much fun to create this piece of magic together.”

    What can you tell us about working on the song with Warren in the studio?

    A: “She’s one of the best songwriters out there. Emily came to my show in Miami, and I was fangirling over her. What she writes is incredible. She’s just magical. The day after the show, she wrote ‘Lighter’. She said ‘I wrote this song for you because I was so inspired by that show’. I was glad there was some kinetic energy there to create something special.

    “Prior to the show, Paris and I hung out at [viral internet star] Lele Pon’s wedding and told each other ‘Yo, we got to do a song’, so it all kind of all lined up. I already had the seed planted in my head. We always want to make music together. Currently, Paris is in ‘music mode’ so I thought ‘OK, I have it!’ This is totally in the pocket for Paris.”‘

    H: “Just being in the studio with her was so inspiring. It was so much fun to collaborate with each other. She just has such an amazing vibe. I really respect her and love her a lot.”

    ‘Lighter was described as a “testament to the power of relationships and growth” and a “Perfect representation of all the epic times we’ve had” by Hilton. What can you tell us about the lyrical inspiration?

    H: “I loved the lyrics. There are so many different meanings it can take on. Like, “I feel lighter without you” can be about a break-up signifying ‘I’m just so much lighter, without this baggage from this person’ or feeling lighter as in letting go of something that you’ve held on to for too long.

    “Even with me, I’ve been on this whole self-discovery journey along with things like my new memoir and my documentary, and I feel so much lighter in so many ways. The lyrics really spoke to me, and then of course, the beat is so sick, because everything that Steve makes is epic.”

    A: “Paris said it perfectly. The lyrics do have a dynamic element of being different things for different people.”

    What was it like to debut the track live at Tomorrowland 2023? 

    H: “I was so emotional looking out into the crowd and seeing so many people and everybody just dancing and jumping and raging. It was really a special moment for me to be up there with Steve who has been one of my friends for so many years and just to be performing this incredible new song was so special.”

    A: “It was epic! Those are the moments where you’re like, ‘God I just want to press save forever’. The feelings you have are so fucking high, everything’s going off in your head and it’s super visual. It’s a full sensory overload. Then seeing like the playback of the crowd and what it was, you’re just left like ‘Oh my God, that just happened’ It’s crazy.”

    The music video for ‘Lighter’ took inspiration from iconic ’80s Maxell cassette tape commercials – what was it like filming that?

    A: “The outfits were great and the vibe was great. There’s this commercial from back in the day, where a guy is sitting on a couch and the speakers are blasting his face in his hair’s pushed back from the soundwaves. The video was inspired by that era of tape commercials. The directors were incredible in being able to bring that kind of energy and nostalgia back. I had a lot of fun.”

    H: “The director’s vision was just so much fun. The sets they built, like the cloud and sitting in the chair recreating that iconic scene, were really amazing. The styling of the video was also incredible. I loved the way it was edited.”

    As a multi-hyphenates working in so many different fields, how can you keep a foot in these doors/projects and continue making music without burnout?

    A: “Keeping things pretty organised is a big part of it. On the music side of things, I really take charge of that because it needs my A&R, my direction, my time in the studio and the different people I work with. Music is also my main platform, that I spend a lot of my time on. The same goes for my shows.

    “You have to have a clear-cut schedule and have incredible time management to be able to  lock everything in so you’re not neglecting anything. The most important thing out of all that is making sure that you care about everything you are working on. There are only so many hours in the day and I want to fill it with things that I only care about.”

    H: “I’ve been in this industry for over two decades now. I love what I do and feel so lucky and blessed. I get to do everything within every single different vertical and with my company 11:11 Media as well. I stay inspired by going to different music festivals and having friends send me new tracks that are coming in. I never get burned out for music. It energises me and brings me to life and makes me feel lighter.”

    The upcoming album ‘Hiroquest: Double Helix’ is a follow-up to 2022’s ‘Hiroquest: Genesis’. Where did the Idea to “embrace dance culture while intertwining the pulse of contemporary Latin music” come from?

    A:”[Dance culture and the pulse of contemporary Latin music] is now a fixture in my musical process. Latin will always be part of every single album I do moving forward. A large part of my fanbase is Spanish-speaking. I have insanely incredible fans all in of Latin America and they’re my most passionate shows for sure. Spain as well. It’s a really big part of my identity when I think about it.”

    “I’d say almost 60-70 per of the artists that come in to work with me at the Neon Future Caves studio that I work out of are Latin. I ended up working with a lot of Latin artist through the natural progression of just being so tied within the community and I love it. I didn’t even realise it. I have a full album of Spanish speaking Latin music that’s ready. Eventually those records will find a place in the world, but yeah, it’s just a big part of the Aoki music culture.”

    Paris – you are no stranger to music. You DJ and you released your self-titled debut back in 2006 (which Lady Gaga called “one of the greatest records ever”). You are also currently working on your second album. Has your creative process changed over 17 years?

    H: “Music has always been such a huge part of my life. I love DJing all around the world and at the biggest music festivals and having my concerts, but singing is something that I just love to do and I’m so proud to be in the studio.

    “Sia is executive producing my whole upcoming album and it’s been so much fun to collaborate her and with all of my favourite artists and get to put together an iconic pop album.”

    A: “I just got to double down on this, Sia is executive producing Paris’ album. That’s crazy. Sia is one of the greatest writers of music and has written some of  the most epic songs ever so to have her and Paris together for this, this is going to be insane.”

    ‘Stars are Blind’ has had a resurrection within the past couple of years, (featured in Promising Young Woman, Kim Petras duet, Miley Cyrus‘ New Year’s Eve performance). What was it like to see that song receive love and attention again?

    H: ‘Stars Are Blind’ will always be such a huge part of my life. I am proud to see how timeless and iconic it is and how people from every generation are able to love and enjoy it so much. I always say it’s the perfect summer song. It’s heartwarming to see everyone around the world still jamming out to it.”

    Steve, will the cake throwing be your thing forever or is it going to come to an end? 

    A: “It’s going to happen. I was thinking about at what point do I retire the cake but I don’t know. I mean, I follow demand so if the crowd wants it.”

    H: “They love it! If someone did that to me, I’d be like ‘Oh My God’ but these people are begging for it! Never retire the cake!”

    A: “They’re like crying for it and make these massive signs to hold up. How do you say no to that? You know? I’ve caked like 20,000 faces at this point. We have a six-page cake rider, we’ve mastered it.”

    ‘HiROQUEST: Double Helix’, is set for release on November 17. Pre-order it here.

    Henri Bergmann talks us through ten of the best from her l…


    AUTOMATIK label boss Henri Bergmann is on fire at the moment. 

    This year has seen her travelling the world with shows in LA, New York, Ibiza, London, Dubai and Central America and a packed summer festival season.

    Her Automatik label has followed suit with an array of amazing, emotive, melodic techno sounds.

    New Automatik compilation, Interstellar, is a shining example of this sound, featuring spellbinding work from the likes of Paride Saraceni, Betical, Monophase and Bergmann herself alongside an array of other great talent.


    To mark the release, we asked Henri to talk us through a playlist of ten of her favourite tracks from the label.

    Henri Bergmann, Wennink, Fat Cosmoe Higher Dimension

    “This is probably my favourite release so far. The pulsating disco bassline combined with Wennink’s Depeche Mode-esque vocal and the synth hook all work so well together. The lyrics ‘Say That You’ll Save Us, Science You’ll Save Us, Cause We Keep Relying On You, Relying On You, Holy Saviour’ are spot on and profound for our times as we inch closer and closer to climate catastrophe. Maceo Plex was playing this in all of his sets last year.”

    Henri Bergmann, Wennink – Protection (Dodi Palese Remix)

    “Ended up being one of the most played songs in the melodic house and techno scene and a staple in Dixon and Ame’s sets. It’s a crossover track that fits into nearly every DJ set with its uplifting arpeggiated bassline and vocal hook: ‘Listen to your voice, cutting through the noise…’ “

    Henri Bergmann, Wennink – Simulacrum (Betical Remix) 

    “The Betical brothers did such a good job on this remix, reminiscent of the signature Bicep breakbeat, layered with Wennink’s lush vocals from the original. Perfect for home listening.”

    Thodoris Triantafillou – Leave Them Kids at Home 

    “This is the first track I signed by another artist so it holds a special place for me. It’s a peaktime indie track filled with a ridiculous amount of energy, ideal for festival sets.”

    Henri Bergmann, Hardt Antoine – Can’t Escape

    “It was really important for me to have Antoine on my first ever Various Artists Compilation. One of my main goals with the VA was to promote local UK talent on my label and Antoine is not only practically my neighbour, but also one of the most unique up-and-coming producers in our scene. He agreed to give me a track if I did a collab with him so obviously we made that happen and we’re both really happy with the result. It’s the perfect combination of both of our styles of music and has been received really well by the community.”

    Henri Bergmann – Nexus

    “This was one of the first tracks I released as Henri Bergmann and was a breakthrough moment for me in establishing my sound. It’s dark, broody, hypnotic techno. I remember when VAAL played it at Tomorrowland and I was so proud. Eliot even got it mastered for me.”

    Nick Jojo – Traces (Monophase Remix)

    “This is a dancefloor bomb, my go-to track to play in my sets at the moment as it always connects and energizes the crowd. Monophase is a name to look out for.”

    Argia – Rizzo

    “Spanish-born Argia is one of my favourite producers, she always stays true to her sound, no compromises, and therefore has a really strong identity and sound. Rizzo sounds raw, it has driving drums and doesn’t take itself too seriously, I was so happy when she agreed to give me this track for my Interstellar VA.”

    Patti – Indecision

    “I’d been working with Dan aka Pattn for a while trying to find a track for the VA and then all of a sudden he sent me this and I was like yessss it’s perfect. Again, he’s a local talent I’ve had my eye on, a resident at Fabric, a Geordie through and through, such a character and another one to watch. You can listen to ‘Indecision’ at home but it also translates to the dancefloor.”

    Paride Saraceni – Intuition

    “I first played this at a sunrise set for Rhinos in Space and it was the perfect setting as the pinky orange light rose from the darkness. It’s a euphoric, happy, uplifting dance track. Paride is going to be performing with me, Cenkk and a special guest at my first ever Automatik party Dec 8th in East London. I’m also going to get my husband Wennink to sing on a few of our songs. I wanted to only book DJs from the UK scene for our first party as i feel like we always import international talent but there’s definitely room to promote our own.”

      DSF Welcomes New Board Members – World News Report


      New DSF Logo

      Gail Farfel, PhD and Bill Kirshner, MD, bring their skills to enhance DSF’s leadership

      Gail’s extensive industry experience and know-how, along with Bill’s experience as an MD and grandfather of a child with Dravet syndrome will expand our board’s capabilities.”

      — Theron Odlaug, PhD, DSF Board President

      CHERRY HILL, NJ, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dravet Syndrome Foundation (DSF) recently welcomed their newest board members, Gail Farfel, PhD, and Bill Kirshner, MD, who will help to support the organization’s work in the field of Dravet syndrome. Dravet syndrome is an intractable developmental and epileptic encephalopathy that begins in infancy and proceeds with accumulating morbidity that significantly impacts individuals throughout their lifetime. Dravet syndrome is a rare disease, with an estimated incidence rate of 1:15,700, with the majority of patients carrying a mutation in the sodium channel gene SCN1A.

      Gail brings more than 25 years of pharmaceutical development and regulatory rare disease experience with both large and small pharmaceutical companies. She is the chief executive officer of ProMIS, a biotechnology company focused on the generation of antibody therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases. Gail was formerly the executive vice president and global chief development officer at Zogenix, Inc., where she led all product development activities to bring Fintepla to market to treat seizures in Dravet syndrome. It was through Zogenix that Gail learned the important work of the DSF, and she is proud to join the board to share her expertise to aid the advance towards better treatments and a cure for Dravet syndrome.

      After 37 years as a family practitioner, Bill and his wife Ileen enjoyed his retirement over the last 4 years at their home 30 miles east of Seattle. Their youngest grandchild Zoe lives with her parents in San Francisco. She is now 2 years old, but was diagnosed with Dravet syndrome after recurrent seizures at 6 months of age. This all-consuming diagnosis changed the focus of their family, and prompted Bill to join the DSF Board of Directors. He hopes his commitment to improvement in care and support of the Dravet syndrome patient community will reduce the isolation and burdens carried by Dravet families. As we all push towards a cure, he will work to bring that day closer.

      Theron Odlaug, PhD, DSF Board President, said “We welcome Gail and Bill to the board. Gail’s role as a key contributor in the approval of Fintepla, extensive industry experience and know-how will add an additional dimension to our board capabilities. Bill’s experience as an MD and as a grandfather of a

      Dravet child will further expand our board’s capabilities.”

      Goldman Sachs’ David Solomon Pushes Pause On DJ Career


      The world of Wall Street and DJ decks rarely mix, but for Goldman Sachs’ CEO, David Solomon, this unusual blend was part of his identity. However, following internal disquiet and external attention, Solomon has chosen to distance himself from his musical endeavors, as reported by the Financial Times.

      While many once viewed Solomon’s performances as a quirky diversion that humanized the corporate leader, it gradually became a source of tension within Goldman Sachs. The CEO’s last memorable stint behind the decks was at the Lollapalooza festival in 2022.

      Goldman’s spokesperson, Tony Fratto, emphasized that Solomon’s hiatus from the music scene isn’t recent news, having not performed publicly for over a year. Fratto also mentioned that the actual concern wasn’t Solomon’s passion for music but the media’s fixation on it.

      Solomon’s DJ journey traces back over a decade to a deal involving a Las Vegas casino. He began his music career under the alias DJ-D Sol, which even made its way into a cameo on the US TV series, Billions. He later rebranded himself, simply using David Solomon.

      Several of Solomon’s musical choices, like his 2019 gig at Tomorrowland, a Belgian festival known for its party atmosphere, drew apprehension from Goldman’s board. Furthermore, a 2020 performance in the Hamptons during the COVID-19 pandemic sparked controversy due to alleged social distancing violations, prompting an apology from the CEO.

      Since taking the helm at Goldman Sachs in 2018, Solomon has sought to reorient the bank’s direction, veering from its traditional roots of investment banking. This pivot has faced its share of hurdles, with Goldman Sachs witnessing a decline in profits recently.

      While his DJ activities became a significant part of his persona, marked by high-profile events and online presence, some inside Goldman Sachs felt the limelight it brought was more of a hindrance than an asset.

      Magic Kingdom Park is a theme park located at the Walt Disney World Resort in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orlando. The recreation area, owned and operated by The Walt Disney Company through its Parks, Experiences, and Products division, opened on October 1, 1971, as the first of four amusement parks at the retreat. Walt Disney proposed the recreation area, which was planned by WED Enterprises. Its format and attractions are based on Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California, and are themed around fantasies and Disney characters.

      Sometimes referred to as the world’s most popular amusement park, it is where youth fantasies come true. With over 40 incredible attractions, themed eating and shopping, and innumerable surprises, your creative mind will be stretched to its limits when you visit the Magic Kingdom. Magic Kingdom Park is divided into six themed lands, each with a unique focus. After arriving at the recreation area by ship or monorail of your choice, you’ll walk around the entryways into the main region, Main Street, U.S.A. You can board the Walt Disney World Railroad for an unforgettable ride through the recreation area, or you can go for a walk to see what else is in store for you.

      Best places to see in the Magic Kingdom

      The Wizardry Kingdom has been divided into six themed “lands.” It is designed in the shape of a wheel, with the center located in front of Cinderella’s Castle. Pathways sprouted from the recreation area’s 107 sections of land, leading to these six terrains. The Walt Disney World Railroad circles the entire 1.5-mile (2.4-kilometer) perimeter of the recreation area, stopping at Main Street, U.S.A., Frontierland, and Fantasyland.

      Cinderella Castle, inspired by the fantasy palace found in the 1950 film, addresses the recreation area. In 2019, the park welcomed 20.9 million visitors, making it the most visited amusement park in the world for the thirteenth consecutive year and the most visited amusement park in North America for at least the previous nineteen years.

      Main Street, U.S.A. is a euphemism for the recreation area’s “opening credits,” in which visitors pass beneath the train station (the initial drapery) and then see the names of key staff along with the windows of the structures’ upper floors. Several windows bear the name of a fictitious company, such as “Seven Summits Expeditions, Frank G. Wells President,” with each honoring key individuals associated with the Disney organization and the development of the Walt Disney World Resort.

      This place is lined with shops selling merchandise and food. The aesthetic is an unassuming community in America in the mid-twentieth century, inspired by Walt Disney’s childhood and the film Lady and the Tramp. The Guest Relations entrance in City Hall is manned by projected individuals who provide information and assistance. A working hairstyling salon charges a fee for hairstyles. The Emporium sells a variety of Disney trinkets, including rich toys, collectible pins, and Mickey-ear caps.

      Both the Partners sculpture of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse in front of Cinderella Castle and the Sharing the Magic sculpture of Roy O. Disney sitting with Minnie Mouse in the Town Square segment of Main Street, U.S.A. were carved by veteran Imagineer Blaine Gibson. The Firehouse shop was replaced in 2012 by a game called Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom.

      The secret of exploring unfamiliar terrain is addressed in Adventureland. It is themed after distant wildernesses in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, South America, and the South Pacific, with a Caribbean town square augmentation. It features excellent attractions, such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Walt Disney’s Enchanted Tiki Room, Swiss Family Treehouse, and Aladdin’s Magic Carpets.

      Visitors to Frontierland can relive the American Old West, from romanticized cowpokes and Native Americans to exploring the secrets of America’s rivers. It has fantastic attractions, such as the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain, and the Country Bear Jamboree. Big Al’s, Frontier Trading Post, Prairie Outpost and Supply, Briar Patch, and Splashdown Photos are also located on the property. The Festival of Fantasy Parade at Walt Disney World begins in Frontierland and winds through a few grounds before finishing on Main Street, U.S.A., around the front of the recreation area.

      The inspiration for Liberty Square came from a pioneer American town set during the American Revolutionary War. The Liberty Belle Riverboat cruises down the Rivers of America recreation area. The Haunted Mansion and The Hall of Presidents are both located in Freedom Square. It is one of the most interesting places to see for people who are history buffs.

      In Walt Disney’s words, “Fantasyland is committed to the youthful on a fundamental level and to the people who accept that when you send up a little prayer to heaven, your fantasies work out as expected.” It’s a Small World, Peter Pan’s Flight, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, and Mad Tea Party are among the attractions. Fantasyland was nearly doubled in size between 2012 and 2014, with new attractions and visitor contributions added, including sub-regions themed to Beauty and the Beast, Tangled, and The Little Mermaid. New attractions were introduced, such as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Under the Sea: Journey of the Little Mermaid.

      The first Fantasyland attractions that remained after the extension were located inside the palace dividers in this yard region directly behind Cinderella Castle. Attractions here include Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Prince Charming Regal Carrousel, Princess Fairytale Hall, It’s a Small World, Peter Pan’s Flight, Mad Tea Party, and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

      Storybook Circus in the Magic Kingdom

      Storybook Circus, a part of Fantasyland, is located at the former site of Mickey’s Toontown Fair and is inspired by Dumbo (1941) and the Mickey Mouse universe. The Barnstormer and Dumbo the Flying Elephant, which were removed from their previous location on January 8, 2012, are among the attractions. The Casey Jr. Sprinkle ‘n’ Soak Station is also included. The delicate openings of Storybook Circus began on March 12, 2012, with more parts opening on March 31.

      On February 11, 2011, Mickey’s Toontown Fair closed for good to make way for Storybook Circus. A few elements of Mickey’s Toontown Fair were removed, while others were re-themed to fit the bazaar concept. An extended Dumbo the Flying Elephant ride was worked with an intuitive line, and a second Dumbo ride was worked nearby to an increment limit. Goofy’s Wiseacre Farm’s Barnstormer was renamed “The Great Goofini.”

      Pete’s Silly Sideshow was a major top region created for meet-and-greets. This fascination features Goofy as a stand-in, Daisy as a soothsayer, Donald as a snake-charmer, Minnie as a magician, and Pluto as a fantastic entertainer. Storybook Circus debuted with The Giggle Gang, a “stratosphere” carnival act that ran for two years from 2012 to 2014.

      The completion of the recreation area’s Enchanted Forest segment marked the end of the development of New Fantasyland. The dull ride fascination Under the Sea Journey of the Little Mermaid, themed to Disney’s 1989 film The Little Mermaid, was remembered for the extension. The fascination is similar to The Little Mermaid, Ariel’s Undersea Adventure at Disney California Adventure. There is also a section dedicated to Disney’s 1991 film Beauty and the Beast, which includes the Beast’s Castle, Gaston’s Tavern, and Belle’s bungalow, as well as the feasting experience at Be Our Guest Restaurant.

      This section of New Fantasyland officially opened on December 6, 2012. Snow White’s Scary Adventures was scrapped to build Princess Fairytale Hall, a meet-and-greet area. Another Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs-themed attraction is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, which opened in 2014.


      Tomorrowland is set in an intergalactic city, a vision of what is to come as seen in the 1950s: rockets, UFOs, and robots, among other things. In the words of Walt Disney: “Tomorrow could be a fantastic age. Today, our researchers are ushering in the Space Age, ushering in achievements that will benefit our children and future generations. The Tomorrowland attractions were created to allow you to participate in activities that are a living outline of our future.”

      Space Mountain, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress, Astro Orbiter, Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover, and the Tomorrowland Speedway are some of the most popular current attractions. Other recent additions to the park include Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin and Monsters, Inc. Snicker Floor. The Shanghai Disneyland TRON Lightcycle Power Run thrill ride will open to the north of Space Mountain in another area of Tomorrowland before Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.

      7 Best Things to Do in the Magic Kingdom

      Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom

      This ride is a prime example of Disney’s deliberate misdirection. For starters, it’s uninformed. Because you can’t see the track in front of you, this reality alone creates suspense. You have no idea whether you will go left, right, up, or down. Second, it has difficult maneuvers and quickly takes an alternate route. When you combine that with going down arbitrary drops, you have an incredible ride. It is definitely one of the best things to do in the Magic Kingdom.

      The ride’s purpose is straightforward. Visitors board rocket trains, each consisting of two vehicles and holding up to six visitors, without delay. These rocket ships are then launched into space, carrying the visitors. Visitors arrive safely back at the Magic Kingdom after a nearly non-stop ride. Space Mountain has been redesigned several times. In the ride’s set of experiments, the current vehicles have been completely replaced two times. Furthermore, as the ride’s patrons changed over time, the line region required surface-level changes. The ride is still as unpleasant as it used to be, but it is still an incredible ride.

      Monsters’s Inc. Laugh Floor

      The actual show is fantastic. The beasts appear, obviously vivified, on the front screen. You’ll consider both familiar and unfamiliar expressions. They need to make their audience snicker because the beast world currently runs on giggling, human chuckling. The fact that the show is intuitive is probably the most amazing aspect of it. The beasts will engage in conversation with various members of the audience. There are a few sections that could be entertaining for young children, but the majority of them are silly. You wouldn’t see the same show if you saw it twice on a similar excursion.

      The subject of this ride is extraordinary. Visitors board an old mining train and are taken on a wild ride through the abandoned mines. This ride, like Space Mountain, is a fantastic diversion for families. The seats are designed to accommodate two visitors per seat, allowing families to spend more time together.

      The actual ride is bumpy and unpleasant. Regardless, what else could you expect from a ride themed as an out-of-control train ride? During the middle of the year, the crowds crammed into a small area for this ride can be brutal. However, in general, I would agree that the ride is well worth the wait.

      Visit the Haunted Mansion in the Magic Kingdom

      This is a fantastic Disney park ride. The Magic Kingdom’s Haunted Mansion is not the same as the one at Disneyland. The Magic Kingdom is home to a Victorian-style house that is both beautiful and terrifying. Whenever you board your doom buggy, you are taken on a tour of the manor grounds. It is completely normal for the ride to come to a halt for a few seconds. Nothing bad can be said about the ride; most of the time, they are simply ensuring that visitors with handicaps or who are somewhat more established can ride safely. Make an effort to notice all of the subtleties.

      Take the Jungle Cruise experience

      When you board the boat, you are informed that you will be traveling through all of the world’s major waterways. During this visit, you will see all of the natural life that these unusual locations bring to the table. The animatronics were best in class when this ride first opened, and they are still truly cool today. This is one of only a few exceptional rides where you ride with the person operating the ride. They go around as your neighborhood expert, and it’s so interesting because they’re allowed to be sarcastic and practically impolite.

      Visit Cinderella Castle, Magic Kingdom

      A trip to the Magic Kingdom isn’t complete unless you see the actual palace. Cinderella’s story is told inside the palace. The mosaics are stunning. If you have a young lady who needs to be treated like a princess, stops by the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. They could turn your son into a sovereign, or a privateer if that is more his speed.

      Cinderella’s Royal Table is a café located within the palace. During breakfast and supper, the actual princesses appear to mingle with the guests. In the early evening, the palace serves as a backdrop for a show featuring a slew of memorable Disney characters.

      A list of the top attractions at the Magic Kingdom would be incomplete without mentioning the night shows. The Walt Disney World version of the Main Street Electrical Light Parade is Spectromagic. It’s incredible and well worth reserving an hour on the cutting edge. Wishes exist in its universe. The actual show lasts about thirty minutes and combines firecrackers and music.

      The two shows are best seen from central avenue. Visitors crowd the road after the procession has finished. When the procession is finished and the roads are congested, it is best not to move until the end. It will be extremely difficult to get around everyone, especially since it is dark. Simply take a minute to enjoy yourself.

      Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom Park is a fairytale dream come true for children of all ages. Enjoy exceptional attractions, charming firecrackers, melodic motorcades, and beloved Disney Characters across 6 erratic terrains. Explore the Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and Main Street, U.S.A. regions to see your dreams come true. Zoom through space, take on the role of a daring privateer, and watch firecrackers light up the sky above Cinderella Castle.
