After much anticipation, LIGHT–the first-ever nightclub created by the minds behind Cirque Du Soleil–is excited to invite guests to experience the passion and creativity of state-of-the-art production and world-renowned DJs including global electronic music sensation Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia’s Sebastian Ingrosso, man of the moment Zedd and rising star Baauer, beginning Friday, April 26. The creative entertainment company, responsible for some of Las Vegas’ most successful productions, is partnering with audio/visual live production outfit Moment Factory to produce distinctly different live experiences for each performer.
Redefining a “night out” and creating a unique, memorable experience each evening, LIGHT Nightclub at Mandalay Bay is thrilled to announce the exclusive residency of platinum recording artist, label-head and three-time Grammy award winner Skrillex. The downtown Los Angeles native broke out in 2010 with his platinum-smash EP Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites and has toured the globe since, performing at nearly every conceivable festival in the U.S. and abroad and releasing several critically acclaimed EPs, including “Bangarang” which is nominated for another four Grammys in 2013. His label, OWSLA, is spoken of in the same breath as many of the most reputable indie dance labels despite having only been operational for just over a year. The unique, diverse approach that Skrillex brings to his sets, featuring a broad spectrum of musical styles and jaw-dropping live production, is reflected in his curatorial approach to signings and collaborations–he’ll be bringing friends, label-mates, and up-and-comers to join him on the decks at LIGHT.
“Vegas is an interesting new territory for electronic music, and I’m excited to be trying some new things out there,” says Skrillex.
Next up is Sebastian Ingrosso, who has signed up for his first-ever residency in Vegas. Sebastian is one of Swedish House Mafia who’ve sold more than one million tickets worldwide on their current tour and won the Government Export Prize in Sweden. He is also the owner of Refune Records–which boasts acts like Alesso and Otto Knows under his direction—and a producer and headliner in his own right. Currently sitting in the USA Top 5 with Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child” and behind the hit “Calling” featuring Ryan Tedder and producer on will.i.am’s “This is Love” featuring Eva Simons, Sebastian is well known for delivering the very best in music and producing some of the best live shows in the electronic dance music space.
“I met the guys from Cirque du Soleil and Moment Factory and I loved their vision and their creativity,” Ingrosso says. “Normally we have to play stadiums or festivals to get to really work on production and this gave me a team who will work with me on trying new concepts in the heart of where this music comes from….the club dance floor. I’m excited!’
Zedd burst onto the scene recently–-going from relatively unknown DJ to appearing on David Letterman performing “Clarity,” supporting his album of the same name which hit the iTunes Top Ten earlier this year. He’s written hits for Justin Bieber and this week finally came out to talk about writing and producing the new Lady Gaga album ARTPOP. He has signed up for his first-ever Vegas residency in the biggest year of his career so far.
“I’m extremely excited to be part of LIGHT,” says Zedd. “Besides the incredible line-up, the unique concept is really refreshing and different from any other Vegas project.”
Baauer is the final DJ in this phase of the announcement and shows the wide genre of music you can expect at LIGHT. Leader of the fast-growing trap scene, he has sky rocketed with the recent debut of his single “Higher” with Just Blaze on SoundCloud receiving 200,000 hits in one day.
