On July 8, Grammy Award winning artist and dub-step master Skrillex released the Recess Remixes EP, which featured various remixed versions of the well-received collaboration with Kill the Noise, "Recess" featuring Fatman Scoop and Michael Angelakos. Currently out on OWSLA / Big Beat / Atlantic Records, the Recess Remixes EP has since gone straight to No. 1 on the iTunes Dance Albums chart and features four remixes from Milo & Otis, Ape Drums, Valentino Khan, and U.K. bass legend Flux Pavilion.
This release comes shortly after Skrillex hosted two epic headlining sets at Las Vegas’s XS Nightclub during Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival week, which lasted from June 17-23. The first set, which took place on Sunday, June 22, Skrillex took over the decks with a special rendition of the venue’s "Night Swim". Guests indulged in a grandiose pool party which featured playful water fights under the Las Vegas sky and created the perfect backdrop for revelers to end a memorable weekend.
For the EDC travelers who decided to stay an extra night into Monday, June 23, XS Nightclub featured a very special set of performances to close the weekend out with an unbeatable grand finale. Featuring back-to-back sets from dance-music legends Skrillex, Diplo, and RL Grime, the venue welcomed more than 10,000 fans that night, which was just short of its record set over Memorial Day Weekend.
Over 400,000 festival goers traveled to Las Vegas this past June to revel in the Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival magic. With practically every major EDM artist in Las Vegas for the week of June 17-23, festival attendees had the opportunity to see some of their all-time favorite artists outside of the festival circuit. To celebrate EDC Week, XS nightclub was the only venue to feature headlining sets from Skrillex and Zedd. In addition, the nightclub featured an exclusive performance from Avicii to kick-off the weekend on Thursday, June 21 which garnered all-star DJs Tiesto, Sebastian Ingrosso, Diplo, and Axwell to compliment his set.
One of the most desirable and opulent nightclubs in Las Vegas located inside Steve Wynn’s mega-casino Encore, XS Nightclub boasts some of the best artists in the world behind its decks each and every week. Avicii, David Guetta, Steve Angello, deadmau5, Skrillex, Diplo, Zedd, Tommy Trash, among numerous others are merely some of the featured talent that the nightclub brings in to entertain its thousands of guests each week.
