America’s Best DJ: Wet + Wild in Philly & NYC
This past weekend, America’s Best DJ Summer Tour Presented by Pioneer DJ & DJ Times hit the Northeast’s two biggest towns—Philadelphia & New York City—for a pair of bumpin’ parties. Of course, DJ Times was there, taking votes for our 100 ABDJ nominees and signing up fans to take a chance at winning a slew of prizes. (This coming Saturday, we’ll do the same at LA’s spectacular Avalon club for some double-trouble—Sharam and Cedric Gervais. Late-night action, here we come.)
On Friday, we trekked to Philly’s Rumor club in the middle of a nasty storm to catch D.C. house-jock Saeed Younan. The club’s main-room DJ-booth suffered some storm-related water damage, but the party went on as Saeed rocked Rumor’s No. 2 room with enthusiasm and warm grooves.
Fast-forward two days to Manhattan’s Gansevoort Park Avenue Rooftop for its Summer Series, which presented Manufactured Superstars. With a high-end clientele that included model Tyson Beckford and former baseball star Mo Vaughn, the pool party saw plenty of champagne splash to go along with MFSS’s hot beats. It looked like this:
