America’s Best DJ Tour: NYC Gets Bass-Bombed; Next Stop, Philly…

By  | 

Philadelphia – After a bass-filled frenzy of beats and drops hammered New York’s Webster Hall two weeks ago, the ABDJ Tour rolls on – to The City of Brotherly Love and this time with a tech-house soundtrack.

Indeed, the America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Weedmaps & DJ Times will land in Philly tonight (Friday, July 7), as ABDJ nominees Sleepy & Boo are set to headline Coda. The New York-based DJ/producer team will liven up the Rittenhouse Square hotspot with a cornucopia of house and techno flavors sure to burn up the dancefloor.


Tonight in Philly: Sleepy & Boo at Coda.

Of course, DJ Times will be in the house, manning a dedicated table, handing out magazines and taking votes for Sleepy & Boo and other fan-favorite DJs. Also, leading local event photographer ArtChick will be there to capture the evening for posterity. Coda doors open at 11 p.m.

D-n-B Bombs: Dieselboy rocked Webster Hall.

At Webster Hall this past June 30, ABDJ nominee Dieselboy (aka Damian Higgins) co-headlined the New York stop of the “Blood Sweat & Bass Tour.” Playing before Canadian dubstep DJ/producer Downlink, the Brooklyn-based Dieselboy rattled Webster’s main room with drum-n-bass bombs that had the dancefloor flailing and pogoing. Working four Pioneer CDJ units, Dieselboy kept the frenetic beats flowing and the energy at peak level. The event was a part of Webster’s Friday night “Girls + Boys” event.

And stay tuned for next week’s ABDJ tour stop: Global Dance Festival at Denver’s Sports Authority Field at Mile High. “The Biggest Summer Dance Music Event in the Rocky Mountains” will feature seven ABDJ nominees: 3lau, Deorro, Green Velvet, Herobust, Kaskade, Porter Robinson, and Z-Trip. Again, DJ Times will be there collecting votes, repping ABDJ title sponsor Weedmaps, and handing out our latest issues.

ABDJ Booth: Voters casts their ballots.
