Club DJs and the likes have the unenviable task of creating playlists that not only pump up the crowd night in and night out, but also contribute significantly to the total party atmosphere of a place. Take casinos, for instance. High-profile DJs put their names on the map from the reviews and recommendations they get, more than their ability to actually make music. Today, you see young EDM artists such as Skrillex, Calvin Harris, and Avicii raise the bar that was set by the Diplos, the Tiestos, and the David Guettas of the party scene.
Ironically, one of the most popular party themes is the casino night. It is by no means considered as new, but this motif has made it happen over the years for both private events and corporate parties. So much so that events company Corporate Event Channel found a way to make a living out of this. Indeed, this is a reflection of how technology impacts the apparent growth of casinos.
Aside from the usual tabletop and machine-operated games, land-based casinos host the abovementioned club DJs, as well as their legions of fans. Massive crowds flock to celebrated establishments like MGM Grand and Aria to party like there’s absolutely no tomorrow. In more ways, this typical scenario creates a so-called cycle of “Eat, Sleep, Party, Repeat.”
On the other hand, its online counterparts continue to gain worldwide prominence by effectively reaching out to a broader audience, upholding credibility, and hopping on the bandwagon of modern pop culture phenomena. Since comic book superhero narratives such as Daredevil on Netflix are in these days, online portal have seen the need to offer games which appeal to such interests. Betfair’s extensive list of games, for one, proudly boasts the official Elektra title in its arsenal to tap into the popularity of trending superheroes.
In essence, though the common ground of land-based and online casinos are their dazzling aesthetic features, as music still play a huge role in their mission to achieve global distinction. Like a lit Las Vegas party or an out-of-this world concert, casinos offer a definitive vibe that takes everyone through an experience. Good, bad, or anything in between, this auditory aspect of partying plays a part in the overall vibe of a scene.
Skrillex will be live at the XS the Nightclub at Encore in Las Vegas on June 5, Encore Beach Club at Wynn Las Vegas on June 9, and at Surrender, Wynn Las Vegas on June 15. Omnia Nightclub in Las Vegas will be lit, as Calvin Harris takes the stage on the 10th, the 20th, and the 24th of June. Avicii teams up with Kaskade at Encore Beach Club at Wynn Las Vegas on June 18, and Alesso on the 25th.
At the end of it all, if you won’t be able to catch any of these talented EDM artists in person, you can always resort to creating a personalised playlist to listen to while playing your favorite casino games.
