Are HardWell and AxWell brothers?
While they may not be related by blood, they’re undoubtedly united by their fierce house music talents. And on the third and final day of the Sirius XM music lounge, Hardwell kicked things off, fresh from his party at Club Set
from the night before. When he arrived with his manager, she excitedly shared news that Skrillex had rolled through during Hardwell’s set at Set; making a rather unexpected - and extremely well received - guest appearance.
Either way, he started things off strong, setting a fab mood for the final day of the party. The lounge started to fill up even quicker than the previous Tiesto-themed day
. Work it, Hardwell! He rocked out and was quickly followed by the super sexy LA Riots. Please note: At least for the purpose of the lounge, LA Riots was just one dude. One dude we’d love to see again (take that note, please, Mr. Riots)! He absolutely crushed the crowd with a stellar remix of Nero’s “Crush on You” and later on Nicky Romero’s “Toulouse” - a track nearly all of the DJ’s sets included this conference. Does WMC distribute track recommendation memos for DJs every year? Just curious...
Saturday was a super hot day in terms of both talent and temperature. While LA Riots was on the decks, George Acosta was on the couch, getting his interview on. Later on, Kaskade rolled through with a thick crew to update Sirius XM on all of his current who’s and what’s. During this time, we were manning the door, making sure that only Super VIPs and artists were allowed entry. Drop The Lime popped by and so did dance-pop act, Maniacalm.
Half way through the broadcast, it was time for ClubPlanet’s new BFF’s Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano to hop on the decks. Sunnery’s supermodel wife was hanging out in the lounge, helping (dramatically) increase the overall ‘beautiful people’ factor. SJ & RM read the room on the real by playing a seriously chill daytime set. ClubPlanet awards this duo two enthusiastic thumbs up each (four in total) for their ability to play just as great during the day as we already know they do at night
During their set, Aoki stopped by to interview with other members of his Dim Mak crew. Fortunately, he showed up without an armful of sheet cakes. After SJ & RM’s set, they were followed by their Dutch neighbor Sander Van Doorn who closed out with the final live set for this three-day lounge. Sander sweetened the crowd with a selection of his super singles such as “Koko” and “Love is Darkness” - tracks that will always shed the right light. While Sander was on the decks, David Guetta popped through for his own 15 minutes to interview on the mic.
Do you see now why we call this event the ultimate red carpet for DJs?
