Las Vegas is, and will always be, associated with the world’s biggest casinos. However, with the advent of modern-age technology and a new take on party tunes, this desert city is slowly establishing itself as the home of electronic dance music artists.
One of the key contributors to the worldwide popularity of casinos is technology.
It helped give this industry a major boost in terms of sustaining credibility, reaching a wider audience, and creating a new market. In fact, online gaming platforms have come up with brilliant ways to attract consumers on a regular basis.
A UK-based mobile casino site even gives out a full first deposit bonuses to new players, highlighting just another reason to enjoy their favorite games online. Not only does it give fans an alternative where they can play their favorite casino games anytime, anywhere, it also puts a spotlight on the whole gaming industry – both online and physical. This, in return, provides Las Vegas more exposure for all its famous establishments and the talented artists performing whether online portals mean to do so or not.
Borgeous, a Platinum recording artist, DJ, and music producer from California, has rather found a home in the desert city.
He has a regular gigs on the strip, specifically at the Hakkasan Night Club Las Vegas at the MGM Grand. His mixture of big room, progressive, and future house music wows audiences worldwide. In addition, Borgeous has collaborations with top artists such as Waka Flocka Flame, DJ Whoo Kid, and Wiz Khalifa.
Another EDM artist worth noting is Calvin Harris. The Dumfries, Scotland-native has crossed the pond and established a steady engagement in Las Vegas. In early 2012, Harris and Wynn Las Vegas agreed to an exclusive DJ residency deal that counted in shows at three of the luxury resort’s main avenues namely, XS Nightclub, Encore Beach Club, and Surrender. And just last year, Calvin Harris signed an extension to be a music consultant for the Abu Dhabi-owned hospitality company, Hakkasan Group.
Everything adds up splendidly. Las Vegas and casinos have the common denominator since time immemorial; casinos and EDM go together by sharing a big, party vibe; and EDM and Las Vegas complement each other in a lot of ways. According to a 2014 dance music article, one could instantly feel the city’s festive atmosphere after arriving from the airport to the strip from all the huge billboards that not only advertise fabled entertainers, but EDM DJs as well.
