First thing is first, you have to watch this to understand the blog (fast forward to 6:20):
Now, before I get started I’m gonna get this out of the way: yes I understand main stream news and media doesn’t even deserve the time of day from us ravers because it’s so misconstrued but this needs to be addressed.
Ok here we go…What planet am I living on? What kind of a world is this where an unintelligent individual such as Wendy Williams is allowed to be on live television and actually speak? Who even is Wendy Williams? She’s so irrelevant and unimportant to every day life it’s not even funny.
Williams apparently hosts some morning talk show and while covering hot celebrity topics she turned her attention to Pasquale Rotella and his engagement to Holly Madison (get it Pasquale!). Of course she decides to highlight the bad things about Pasquale and his current legal issues. After listing off the charges against Rotella, which she had no idea what any of them meant, she then took aim at the “rave parties” that Pasquale puts on.
Just to give you a little insight as to how idiotic Wendy is, she couldn’t even pronounce Pasquale Rotella and she doesn’t know what embezzlement is. Great research Wendy, you’re off to a good start.
So, not only is this news about Pasquale and his legal issues old, but Wendy also calls him a “party planner.” Umm newsflash sweetheart, he’s not just a party planner, he’s the freaking CEO of Insomniac, one of the biggest names and organization’s in EDM culture! Please, for the love of Bass, do a little research before you go on air. Not to mention how fake is the crowd’s reaction? Those “oohs” and “aahs” were worse than an 80′s sitcom laugh track.
Ok, moving on from Pasquale to how Wendy interprets “rave parties.” The first thing she says is, “These rave parties are huge with the kids, they take drugs.” Stop. Did you completely forget the part where we go for the love of the music and the people there? I’m confused Wendy, help me understand. Whats loopty doopty? Because you seemed a little drugged up trying to describe this. Maybe I should just assume you take drugs and that all morning talk show hosts take drugs. I mean, that’s what you just did to us isn’t it?
I’m sick and tired of this shit. It’s just another ignorant mainstream media outlet jumping to conclusions and using the same points of angle “drugs and repetitive music.” Let’s get something straight Wendy before I continue to breakdown your dull mind. Yes there are drugs at these events, but there’s drugs at every music event. And no our music isn’t repetitive, I bet you haven’t even taken the chance to listen to our songs and try and understand us. I’m not asking for much, just a little research and a fair statement.
Next Williams says, “…and they’re sweating and they’re drinking water and they’re up to things” what things? What does that even mean? What are you getting at? By things do you mean dancing? By water do you mean water? Why are you trying to make us seem so bad and look like we are all drug addicts? I don’t get it? I have so many questions for you Wendy. I wanna talk. Let’s do an interview. Let’s get to know each other Wendy, let’s go on a date and I’ll bring the loopty doopty and we can drink water together and do “things” how’s that sound? Because then maybe, just maybe, I can give you some real insight on ravers and rave culture. Maybe I can open your eyes a little. Maybe I can show you that there is so much love in this scene between ravers that are complete strangers to one another. I wake up every day to a new story about how someone’s live was saved by this scene and this music and yet you sit there in your comfy chair on stage talking about all the negativities and for what reason?
So Wendy, remember this: While you may think you know all about these “rave parties” you haven’t gotten the slightest clue. No one judges here, everyone loves one another. We aren’t a bunch of drug addicts, we are music lovers. That’s why we go to these events, because we love music. I bet that thought didn’t even cross your mind. So please Wendy, do some research, interview a raver, interview Pasquale, but please, do not by any means ever talk about this subject again until you really know what goes on.
This story end with Pasquale personally inviting Wendy Williams to EDC Vegas via Twitter so she can get some insight. I pray to the Based Gods that she goes.
I’m done. That’s my rant for the day. I’m sure I’ll get some commenters calling me an idiot for even writing this but whatever that’s your opinion and I respect it. Also, I know there is a lot of counter points to what I said but I’m sticking to what I said. This was more of a rant and speaking my personal mind than it was informative or anything else. So yeah, thanks TSS Fam.
Electric Daisy Carnival, the annual EDM festival held by Insomniac Events, attracts more than 300,000+ spectators every year. The New York branch of Electric Daisy Carnival just wrapped up it’s festival event’s this past weekend. The two day event was held Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May 18th. It’s been generating in the new’s that some kid somehow lost his finger sometime during the two day event held at Citi Field stadium, Flushings, NY. Probably not the type of news coverage Insomniac was hoping for. Watching this video made me queasy, the kid doesn’t even realize his finger is gone until the annoying girl starts screaming that his pinky is gone. His friend’s aren’t much of a help, I think they’re lost somewhere in a K-hole. Not really sure who’s to blame for this one though, the people who designed the structure he was climbing on, or the kid for being dumb enough to climb on it. What do you guy’s think?
If you’re a close TSS follower, then you know that CHANGE has been on our radar for a long time now. He released this masterpiece ‘Inverse’ back in February, and is using it as his submission for the EDC Vegas discovery project. We know these things are tedious, but nobody deserves more to win a contest like this than Alex. Make sure to show the track some love and be sure to catch CHANGE on our Mixify festival next week!

If you’re headed out to Electric Daisy Carnival New York this weekend specifically to see the incredibly hot twin sister DJ duo NERVO perform, you’ll be very disappointed. Yesterday the two announced that duo to an extremely unfortunate chain of events beyond their control, they will no longer be performing at EDC New York 2013.
“Unfortunately due to a series of unfortunate events beyond our control, we are unable to attend Electric Daisy Carnival New York this weekend. We wholeheartedly apologize to all our fans who were looking forward to seeing us perform. Thankfully we are returning to NYC for a show at Pacha on May 25th. We hope to see you then!”
NERVO was supposed to perform on the “Circuit Grounds” stage at 3:00PM (right now). Luckily, Insomniac has done an incredible job supplying this festival with a ton of other acts in their stacked lineup including Nicky Romero, ARTY, R3HAB, & many more that you can catch on the same stage this afternoon.

Electric Daisy, Drive Me Crazy! With EDC New York just over two weeks away, it’s about time we get some awesome anthems! Our buddy MING dropped the Radio Edit of his song Carnival today and this is one of the hardest hitting Electro House songs out there. I can’t wait for this to be blasted throughout the festival grounds in New York. The drop in this one is so energetic. Make sure you head on over to Beatport to grab the track! Enjoy!

After having two extremely successful years at Las Vegas Motor Speedway since moving from the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in 2011, Insomniac, the production company who puts on the amazing three day Electric Daisy Carnival music festival, says that EDC 2014 may not happen due to Las Vegas Live Entertainment Tax issues.
“Insomniac loves doing business in Las Vegas, and right now our primary focus is producing the best show for the fans who will attend Electric Daisy Carnival on June 21, 22 and 23. While we would love to bring another festival to Nevada, we are tabling any further discussions until the state Legislature settles the Live Entertainment Tax issue.”
Over the past two years when this event has taken place, Nevada’s Live Entertainment Tax has not been applied to massive events taking place outdoors such as EDC. Unfortunately, the Nevada State Legislature is revisiting the policies of LET to possibly start applying the taxation to outdoor events.
In 2012, Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival generated $207 million for Clark County, NV, and if this 10% taxation were to be applied, EDC would forfeit up to $9.5 million of their revenue.
If you haven’t been to EDC at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, I highly recommend grabbing your three-day pass for EDC 2013 before the event is gone for good.
Where do you think Insomniac will take Electric Daisy Carnival next on the West Coast?
Festival Season means festival mixes and I have absolutely no problem with that. Our boy Woogie is back and this time with installment 24 of ClubNights, the EDC Edition. These mixes have always been some of my favorite to listen to and with this one being a festival edition I love it that much more. Kicking it off with Hard Rock Sofa’s remix of Just One Last Time, you can’t help but get a feel good vibe that makes you want to run away to all the festivals and never come back. From beginning to end this one bangs and includes tracks such as the Chasing Summers remix by R3hab & Quintino and even The Code by W&W. Make sure you grab that free download below and enjoy!
