EDC Vegas 2011: Saturday Night Preview Pt.3 – Kinetic Field

Saturday Night is by far the night I am looking forward to most this weekend. The lineup is too massive and too versatile for one night of fun.  That being said, I have a generally good idea of who I am looking forward to seeing and who I’m dying to see.  While the dubstep lineup is gigantic Saturday, house music brings some of the top DJs to its fronts for the night’s party. Afrojack and David Guetta have released single after singles as of ate and their newest Bass Line will be played at a number of sets this weekend.  We follow Afrojack’s set at 10:45-12 with one of my favorite performances in music, Benny Benassi. Ever since Ultra, I have held a tremendous amount of respect for this guy, literally busting out a 20 minute dub portion on the main stage. He is experimental in his approach and flawless in his style.  Here’s a song, evident of Benassi’s versatility in his originals.

Benny Benassi – Satisfaction (J.Rabbit Bit) 

As we move later into the night, Vegas-goers will be blessed with the appearance of David Guetta.  His sets are always a thrill and he is bound to bring out some special guests every time he controls the platform.  Look for Afrojack to join him on stage as well as someone like Kid Cudi (who will also be at the Hard Rock the previous night)

David Guetta – One More Love

After a performance that will leave the crowd in awe, none other than Above and Beyond will follow.  Largely known for their ultra state of Trance, Above & Beyond is a perfect closing act (even though Sidney Samson follows).  Their new releases include Thing Called Love which has a few sick remixes, as well as Sun And Moon.

Get ya popcorn ready.  3D glasses the future of tomorrow, and now we can even watch it in our own living rooms.  The thing is, the glasses kind of suck, they always make me dizzy.  Not only that, but when mom and dad walk into the room with all your friends wearing the new 3ds, what the fuck is running through their mind? Well maybe I’ll bring a pair for ultra, but to keep them on unless youre watching Avatar is out of the question. Tying this into the music,  the new hit from Benny Benassi, “Cinema” has been gathering some steam, and now I get to introduce you to the two remixes that are irty dirty.

Cafeteria Food: Top 10 Space Songs

After just watching Black Swan and No Strings Attached (I just got away with that), I finally reached the conclusion that there’s only one girl out there for me, Natalie Portman.  She blows away the definition of perfection. Almost like Ghandi meets Alba meets an In ‘N Out Burger and then all three of those meet up under the Eifel Tower to have the best sex ever.  And while I’ll confess I never integrated a single Star Wars episode into my childhood, mostly because I was not the nerd picked last for every basketball game on the playground, I’m going to go ahead and dedicate this post to the brilliance that Mr.Lucas had in picking Portman up at a young age.  Here’s my rendition of the new and improved Star Wars, labeled Space Wars.  A list of the top 10 songs about/related to space in the past year.  Here’s to you beautiful.
