DubVision - Backlash (Martin Garrix Edit) [Official Music Video]
This Friday, we're back at Vessel for a DJ premier. We're proud to bring you one of the hottest EDM house DJ duos in world, DUBVISION from the Netherlands!
Steve and Victor Leicher are DubVision, a very familiar name to those in the know. Born and raised in The Netherlands, one the worlds hotbeds of electronic music, these brothers have been pushing out hit after hit, nonstop for the past few years and have been quickly rising in the ranks of the global EDM scene.
Starting with their first buzz building release, "All By Myself" on Spinnin'. The track had massive airplay on some of the highest regarded DJ radio shows including Pete Tong's Essential Selection, Tiesto's Clublife, David Guetta's "F*ck Me I'm Famous” and Afrojack & Bobby Burns' "Jacked”. When the track was finally released, it went straight up to #8 in the Progressive House chart on Beatport and #25 overall. The track received huge support from the likes of Swedish House Maffia, Tiesto, Sander van Doorn, Afrojack, and David Guetta to name a few.
In a more recent outing the brothers teamed up with Canadian producers Project 46 in creating "You & I", featuring the wonderful vocals of Donna Lewis. Just like "All By Myself" "You & I" received huge DJ support and awesome critiques. It reached #7 in Beatport's Main Top 100 chart and was a Progressive House chart Top 5 tracks for ages.
Their latest effort is a remix for Axwell's prestigious Axtone Records imprint. This highly acclaimed remix for Discopolis' 'Committed To Sparkle Motion' is still ranking high in the Beatport Progressive House chart and is rocking dance floors all over as we speak.

Sol Y Luna & Set Proudly bring you...
German Superstar DJ, the one and only...
(Germany | Rockets & Ponies)
Max Gardner & Elvi
This Friday, we're back at Harlot for the long awaited return of the one and only TIMO MAAS. We're proud to bring you one of the hottest house DJs in world in such an intimate venue.
2013 should be a vintage year for Timo Maas. Over the next 12 months, he’ll release his long awaited new artist album, Lifer, featuring Mikill Pane, Placebo’s Brian Molko, U.N.K.L.E’s James Lavelle, Katie Cruel and more; he’ll celebrate 10 years as a resident at DC10 in Ibiza; provide releases for labels such as Last Night On Earth and My Favorite Robot Records; welcome new artists to his Rockets & Ponies imprint, help Cocoon commemorate their 100th release: and continue to reinforce his reputation as one of German electronic music’s most colourful characters.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Long before he charmed the pants of dancefloors worldwide, he was DJing back in his native Bückeburg and nearby Hannover from the age of 13. He’s been at it for over 30 years now. “I went from music lover and tape recorder to DJ for local occasions to DJing in local discotheques at 15,” he recalls. “By the age of 17 I was playing in clubs.”
The Maas remix made him an international DJ celebrity and propelled the track into the pop charts in both Germany and the UK, leading to remix offers from Madonna, Depeche Mode, Fatboy Slim, Muse, Kelis and many more. Maas and then studio partner Martin Buttrich had returned from the Miami conference in 1999 inspired. “We were so motivated, we started writing music off the back of these amazing memories and produced a string of things in quick succession, including ‘Doom’s Night’. A few months later all the UK garage guys picked up on it and then all the other stuff we’d done in that short burst of activity came out too. But with the success of this fucking record on the garage scene it blew up. This record changed everything!”
Yet it is still his club work that informs and drives much of the desire in the studio. “I come from DJing,” he asserts. “For me it’s the connection to the world outside. It’s where I can experiment, where I hear about things, it’s just so important to what I do. How can you have a feeling for clubs when you are not going to them? Indeed. In clubs, as in the studio, there’s only one way to describe Timo Maas: lifer.
Saturday, October 4th|
at Ruby Skye Nightclub
420 Mason St. btw Post & Geary
Sol Y Luna & Ruby Skye Present
For the first time at Ruby Skye, platinum-selling artist...
This special Saturday, we're proud to bring you the biggest show this year, platinum-selling artist ERICK MORILLO at San Francisco's #1 club, RUBY SKYE!
There really is very little in the world of music and entertainment that Erick Morillo hasn't turned his hand to. He's a platinum-selling artist, he's topped the charts worldwide as the producer behind Reel 2 Real's hit "I Like To Move It” (used in both Madagascar movies, reaching millions of viewers worldwide and covered by Will I Am in Madagascar 2) and he's been responsible for a bewildering array of dance-floor tracks. He's remixed everyone from Whitney Houston to Basement Jaxx and continues to run the legendary Subliminal Records house music empire. On his debut album he collaborated with Puff Daddy and Boy George alike. And on his second solo artist album he's setting his sights even higher: "We've already put the message out to Prince and 50 Cent."
For over a decade now, Erick has remained one of the most in-demand and instantly recognisable DJs in the world. From the instant success of his weekly ‘Sessions' parties in New York, to hosting events like the annual road-blocking Subliminal Sessions parties in Miami at Winter Music Conference, to his coveted residency at Ministry of Sound (he's still one of the only American DJs to ever hold one) and of course his now legendary Subliminal Sessions parties at Pacha, Ibiza, he'll now be celebrating his 13th historic season at the club in 2012. His non-stop DJing schedule has seen him straddling the globe playing up to a whopping 30 gigs a month, particularly in the summer months where he'll play from Rome and Mykonos to London and – but never far from his weekly Wednesday show at Pacha, Ibiza. He's also become a familiar television personality through his appearances on MTV and MTV Ibiza two years in a row whilst starring in a seven part series for UK TV station, Channel 4, which followed him around the world to the biggest parties and was aired to millions of viewers.
We are truly honored to have him at such an intimate venue for someone of his caliber. Tickets will sell out for this event so grab yours early while they're still priced low.
