    Mark Farina was booted out of the Marquee Dayclub (pool) after Miguel Migs' set, apparently the VIPs wanted some different untz.

    Pathetic.

    http://blogs.lasvegascitylife.com/ci...ff-at-marquee/

    When people say “house music,” they’re talking about one of two things. Either they’re referring to the largely underground, groove-heavy electronic music subgenre infused with R&B, funk, world music and disco … or a catch-all description for any song with a 4/4 dance beat, especially those on the pop charts. And when a Vegas club claims to champion house music, you can bet it means the latter and not the former.

    This differential became apparent on Saturday, June 2, at Marquee Dayclub. The popular pool spot had scheduled and advertised an afternoon exclusively featuring authentic house music DJs, co-headlined by west coast house favorites Miguel Migs and Mark Farina. But when it was time for Farina’s set, he was asked to leave the decks.
    So what happened? “It was the end of the afternoon and management made a decision to reschedule him for another day,” said a rep from Marquee. However, Farina said on his Twitter account that his crewmember was told the dayclub’s manager “was getting complaints from their table service crowd.” And, according to an attendee, Farina was replaced by another DJ who began playing more commercial house.

    This is hardly a common occurrence for a dance music veteran and pioneer — or even at Marquee, where we’ve heard and enjoyed real house music in the past. The spot famously opened with electronic dance music on both weekend nights — a rarity for non-afterhours spots on the Strip — and openly touted its house credentials. But it’s also not the first time a respected national DJ has been bumped from the decks by club management. DJ Jazzy Jeff was pulled from the Surrender booth in 2010, reportedly due to his musical selections, and in 2001, the former Club Ra benched house duo Deep Dish after an athlete VIP demanded to hear hip-hop.

    Marquee, which led all national dance spots in earnings last year, doesn’t make the majority of its dough at the box office or its bars — that $70 million largely comes from its bottle service sales and the rental of its cabanas, both typically costing a visiting party in the thousands. While it may still be a universal faux paux for Joe Clubber to walk up to a DJ and request a song, I’ve heard multiple times about VIPs waving their big wallets around, trying to treat a club like their jukebox — and sometimes, they get their way. Even Deadmau5 has his price, as the electro/prog house titan reportedly netted $100,000 for dropping Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On a Prayer” at XS last year, upon a VIP’s request.

    If Farina’s assertion is true, the incident couldn’t have happened at a worse time for Marquee: It’s one of the host venues for Electric Daisy Carnival week, which starts Tuesday and is threatening to overtake Miami’s Winter Music Conference as the big go-to dance music confab in the U.S. Now’s not the time to have your musical integrity called into question. Farina may have been reserved and resigned about his ouster, but if underground house legend Danny Tenaglia — who once berated sound techs at the former C2K in front of a packed club — is so much as looked the wrong way by the bottle service clubbers he so loathes during his June 11 gig at Marquee’s pool, expect a lot more noise and headlines.

    Paid $30 for the Daphni - Ye Ye 12" today. That song rules too much to not own a physical copy, even at that price.

    Omar S announced for Mister Sunday in a couple weeks. Never seen him before so I'm pretty stoked. Any of you seen him? Is he as good as people say?

    Also:

    I saw him a while back. Enjoyable but nothing spectacular. Jackmaster, playing right before him, was ridiculously good.

    Thought it was Mister Saturday Night. Have they changed up the name?

    No they're still doing the mister saturday night events but starting this summer they're doing outdoor parties at Gowanus Grove every Sunday. I went to the one this past weekend and it was a fantastic time. Super intimate and laid back, summa vibez floatin' through the air. You know.

    Here's the event page:

    I will definitely do that if it arrives in time.

    Also, I just paid roughly the same amount for another Daphni 12" because every song is fucking BANGING. Please consult the following videos for proof:

    Not that this is anything new, but. Just about every track James Holden selects on his mixes skirts dangerously close to cheese and fucking always comes out on the right side of the divide, making it even more amazing. He's seriously one of the most re-listenable DJs I've heard, up there with Michael Mayer. I'd really like to see him spin one of these days.

    Can you recommend some of his best mixes SD?

    Everything I've heard is good. At The Controls is the one I listen to the most. But also get his Balance 005 and DJ Kicks mixes. The first two are pretty long as he likes to kind of stretch out on his mixes.
