His track “Heroes (we could be)” with Tove Lo raced up the charts in late 2014 and was just a taste of what to expect as he will release his debut studio album on Def Jam this year. Also returning to LIGHT is DJ pioneer and music legend Carl Cox, whose pioneering ways have not only paved the way for dance music to be where it is today but also endeared him to generations of electronic music fans worldwide. In addition, Axwell along with Ingrosso who together are releasing an album on Def Jam in 2015 are returning; Baauer, who will continue to host his massively popular Studio B monthly residency; GTA, who have been blowing up the festival circuit with their Miami bass productions; and dance music favorites A-Trak; Bassjackers; Clockwork; Norman Doray and Grammy nominees Sultan + Shepard.
New at LIGHT, as the club ventures into its third year as one of the most sought after destinations on the Vegas strip, is U.K. talent Disclosure. Known more as a live act, at LIGHT their appearances will be a rare DJ set. Having previously taken place in New York City, San Francisco and Chicago, LIGHT will serve as the Las Vegas home for Disclosure’s specially-curated shows titled “Wild Life.” Called a “joyous and masterful” show by ConsequenceofSound.net, the “Wild Life” shows will feature performances with Disclosure’s friends and the artists they like. Also onboard is EDM pioneer Fatboy Slim; American producer and Grammy nominee Morgan Page; and hip-hop megastar adventurers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis; and will.i.am, known for his incredible tracks with the Black Eyed Peas and accomplished producer in his own right. There is also DJ Mustard who is making major moves in hip-hop production circles having already created major hits for the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, Kid Ink and 2 Chainz just to name a few.
True to its mission of being a laboratory for inspired experiences, LIGHT has been experimenting since it’s opening with new artistic content on a monthly basis. In 2015, LIGHT is bringing a fresh look to the club with its new Artistic Director Maximiliano Torandell. The Argentinean producer and performer will soon unveil new moments and performances for a sexy and avant-garde LIGHT 2015 show. What makes a Cirque performance at LIGHT different than any of the other Vegas shows? “LIGHT is a nightclub, not a stage show and therefore the requirements for the performances are different,” says Torandell. “We want the performers be capable of seducing and captivating our audience without separating them from the club experience. We don’t want people sitting down and watching a show, we want a flawless integration of the performance and the party.” Watch for more on LIGHT’s new artistic direction.
