DJs will be spinning on Christmas Eve and Christmas. We’ll get to that in a minute. But first, let me just put in a little plug for Benny Benassi’s gig coming up Thursday at Tao.
Benassi’s ubiquitous 2011 hit is “Cinema,” featuring Gary Go on vocals — and the remix is by Skrillex.
Skrillex has been getting a lot of credit for further propelling the popularity of “Cinema,” but it was a tight song to begin with.
Benassi also produced the sexy dance tune “Satisfaction” and collaborated with Chris Brown on the hit “Beautiful People.”
If Benassi were an NFL athlete, you would say he’s an undervalued star. He’s really skilled.
So if you want to start your New Year’s Eve club-partying a few days early, you have two great choices midweek: Afrojack performs on Wednesday at Surrender at Encore, and Benassi on Thursday will be at The Venetian’s Tao.
But here’s your weekend club forecast:
TONIGHT: Dash Berlin at Tao. Markus Schulz with EC Twins at Marquee at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Behrouz and Faarsheed at Haze at Aria. Jonathan Kite at Chateau at Paris.
SATURDAY: Chuckie at Marquee. Sharam at Surrender.
SUNDAY: Nadia Ali at Surrender.
WEDNESDAY: Afrojack at Surrender.
THURSDAY: Benny Benassi at Tao. Fedde Le Grand at Tryst at Wynn. Jason Derulo at Haze. Ikon at the Bank at Bellagio.
