New York City — Today Afrojack and Erick Morillo announced that they will join the star-studded lineup of “Help Heal New York,” Pacha New York’s Hurricane Sandy benefit planned for this Wednesday, Nov. 14. DJ Times is proud to serve as media sponsor for this event.
The once-in-a-lifetime night of music features a huge roster of over 50 DJs, including international and local stars with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Greater New York Red Cross and other local charities. The event will run 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. at Pacha New York, located at 618 W. 46th Street in Manhattan.
Afrojack joins international luminaries, including Shermanology (with whom he teamed up on “Can’t Stop Me,” championed as the song of the summer) along with Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano and Danny Avila playing the event. New Jersey’s Erick Morillo rounds out a local roster that includes legends like Danny Tenaglia, François K, Cevin Fisher and Grammy Award winner Hex Hector. And those close to Pacha tease that there will be many more announced… and some unannounced guests.
In 2012, Afrojack produced a Top 40 record or two (he helmed the boards for Ne-Yo’s “Give Me Everything,” remixed Michael Jackson’s “Bad” and has worked with Pitbull and Shakira), headlined every festival from Electric Daisy Carnival to Tomorrowland, and rocked the entire globe with his signature brand of floor-destroying beats. Not only is this your last chance to see Afrojack before his Jacked tour hits Pier 94 on New Years Eve, but it’s also a chance to hear his new releases, including the chart topping “Annie’s Theme” out now on Wall Recordings and currently No. 3 on Beatport.
The local roster wouldn’t be complete without Erick Morillo, Pacha New York’s co-owner and chairman of the board. “I have so much love for New York and New Jersey,” says Morillo, “and it was devastating to see the effect the storm had on our local communities. I jumped at the chance to get involved in such a good cause and would like to thank the international dance community for coming together to help get our area back on their feet.”
Morillo remains one of the top-ranked house DJs on the planet, bringing his party style across the globe and keeping the original music coming through his New Jersey-based imprint Subliminal Records. After being honored last month by his hometown of Union City, N.J. (who renamed the street he grew up on “Erick Morillo Way”), the tri-state’s hometown hero returns to lend a hand.
In addition to donating all profits, the staff of Pacha and all artists are offering their services free of charge. From coat check tips to DJ fees, everyone in the building will be there for the sole purpose of supporting the tri-state area, and getting it back on its feet again. Anyone interested in volunteering should reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
