Electric Beach at Santos Party House with EDX Recap
The weekly Electric Beach party at Santos Party Haus has quickly grown to be one of Elektro’s favorite parties of the summer. If you haven’t been yet, Electric Beach, presented by Corona Light, is one of the hottest parties going on in New York, featuring up-and-coming and big name electronic artists. Saturday night, we headed downtown to Santos for what was just another epic night of banging beats and dancing until theearly hours of the morning. Electric Beach completely turned the place upside down. This week saw the Hyperbits along with VERY SPECIAL guest Maurizio Colella, aka EDX, who brought the heat – literally. Boy it was packed, and it was virtually impossible not to leave smelling like a mixture of sweat, Corona Light, and champagne – all equal measures of a successful night.
The New York City-based producing duo known as Hyperbits opened up the night and got the crowd ready to party, playing a mix of electro and deep house tracks, including their own impressive mixes like “Move” and “When You Were Young” –and even throwing in Deadmau5’s “Strobe” when you’d least expect it. If you were lucky to arrive early enough, maybe you snagged an awesome Corona Light Remix watch, or a few glow necklaces, or a pair of official EDX x Electric Beach shades; not to mention free copies of the summer issue of Elektro that could be found laying around the lounge. The energy in the room was high and hard not to feed off of. Hyperbits gave EDX the perfect platform for a killer feel-good set.
The crowd was ready for his famous deep progressive melodies and armed with jumbo glow stick wands that were passed out just in time for the set. When EDX took the decks, the sound of the night changed. He stayed true to his classic sound, consisting of exactly what the crowd came there for: uplifting, melodic synths and smooth vocals – a welcomed change from the typical massive collabs you’d expect to hear on a Saturday night.
The remix master played hit after hit, sprinkling his magic touch throughout the night, playing tracks from Ingrosso’s “Kidsos” to ones with beautiful, airy vocals, such as Nadia Ali in “This Is Your Life”, Hadley on “Everything” and of course, “Falling Out Of Love” feat. Sarah McLeod. Also in the mix, “Silhouettes” and Cedric Gervais’ “Molly”, ”Embrace” and Dirty South’s remix of “Devil’s Work”. By this point, everyone was chanting “EDX” as he kept spinning madly on, playing an array of happy tunes like Abel Ramos Benevento’s With Love remix of “Rubin” and then Wolfgang’s remix of “I Will Be Here”, “Shimmer” by Aeonism and Kings Of Tomorrow’s “Finally” (Danny Tenaglia Time Marches On Remix). He had everyone singing along to the inspirational vocals of Quilla and Sultan & Ned Shepard’s epic “Walls” that he remixed with Kaskade’s “Eyes”. It was a beautiful end to the night and EDX did not disappoint.
