America’s Best DJ: EDC Report & Onward to Forward Disco

By  | 

New York City – We’ve braved the heat of the desert, and we’re ready to party this weekend in New York with house royalty.

This past weekend, the America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented By Pioneer DJ & DJ Times headed to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for Electric Daisy Carnival to rave with over 300,000 other attendees. Taking place from June 19-21, the three-day fest boasted seven jaw-dropping stages that hosted just about every major name in electronic music. While there, we collected a record number of votes from dedicated fans, who trekked out to the Pioneer DJ booth to check out the company’s latest products and make their pick for #ABDJ2015.


The main kineticFIELD stage played host to a gargantuan performance from former ABDJ winner Kaskade, while the festival’s cosmicMEADOW featured a gaggle of other ABDJ nominees like Seven Lions, Flosstradamus, Bassnectar, Justin Martin, Pretty Lights, and Moby. Other nominees at EDC 2015 included: AC Slater Audien, 3lau, Carnage, Dieselboy, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Dubfire, Get Real (Claude VonStroke & Green Velvet), Krewella, Saeed Younan, Soul Clap, 12th Planet, Victor Calderone, and Z-Trip.

This weekend, we’re back in NYC to party in the Meatpacking District with hometown hero and America’s Best DJ nominee David Morales. As mentioned in DJ Times’ NYC Pride 2015 Party Guide, Morales will join fellow DEF MIX member Hector Romero at Cielo for its Forward Disco party. It’s sure to be a packed night, with sets from residents Sean Cormac and Chili Davis as well as a special performance from Janice Robinson of her forthcoming single “There Must Be Love” with Morales.
