Show Review: Sidney Samson Spins, Eva Simons Wins, Feenixpawl Closes Hard
EDM fans who weathered the storm and made it to Pacha NYC Friday (June 7) night for Sidney Samson, got a special and unforeseen treat.
Sidney Samson is known for his ability to get any venue jumping and stretch the limits of house and DnB music. With enthusiastic drops, ridiculous synths alongside the unmistakable voice of the ever so lovely Eva Simons, and Samson’s girlfriend, the evening had another crowd pleaser in store.
About halfway through his set, Samson stopped the music and shared a moment with the lucky partygoers as an incredibly surprised Simons was presented with a congratulatory plaque for over one million copies sold of her acclaimed single, "Take Over Control", presented by Robbins Entertainment.
"Thank you! This is so dope!” Eva thanked the crowd, leaving Sidney to play that very same song as Eva took to the mic and belt out the lyrics, leaving the crowd in whirlwind of excitement.
Afterwards, Samson dropped his new remix of Ariana Grande's single, "The Way" ft. Mac Miller. He went onto mix "Joyenergizer" into Daft Punk's "Harder Better Faster", and crowd-stompers like "It's a Trap!" fused with his original "Chase the Trap" single, just to add that grimey NY sound.
As expected, the prolific DJ catered to the crowd, tearing the decks up until 4 a.m. He then handed the reigns over to Australian duo, Feenixpawl. Knowing they had big shoes to fill after Sidney Samson's incredible set, they instantly busted out their single, "Universe" in addition followed by the tune that put them on the map, "In My Mind". The duo dropped a tweaked version of "Redux", displaying their skills by adding an extra touch to the already famed club bangers.
The event was exactly what NYC needed to bring it out of that rainy funk. Don't forget to tweet @evasimmons and congratulate her on #OVER1MILSOLD.
