Hailing from Russia, Swanky Tunes emerged as a big player in the EDM world with an array of crowd-rocking tracks and notable collaborations. They have done shows worldwide and are ranked among the top 10 DJs in all of Russia. Vadim, Dmitry, and Stanislav have been rocking crowds for over a decade and Pacha NYC was their latest target. They opened up with a very hard remix to Calvin Harris and Ne-Yo’s “Let’s Go” and the crowd went crazy. They took the microphone, hyping the crowd, yelling into the microphone with thick Russian accents.
The guys continued the show with the crowd roaring, dropping hits like Deniz Koyu’s “Bong” and a memorable mashup of Alesso’s “Raise Your Head” with Sandro Silva and Quintino’s huge hit “Epic”. It’s safe to say that the cold weather outside had zero impact on anyone inside.
Other memorable moments were when they played their own hits including “Sending My Love” , a collaboration with R3hab, “Make Some Noise” with Tiesto and most recently, “Chemistry (Turn the Flame Higher)” which was made along with Hard Rock Sofa and Matisse & Sadko. The crowd upstairs and downstairs was filled with people rocking to the sound of Swanky Tunes.
The main floor was not too packed as it usually is on other nights, which was a plus, however it’s a shame that more people didn’t get to experience Swanky Tunes’ awesomeness that they brought with them to NYC. They played for over three hours, emptying their arsenal of tracks for the night, hitting the crowd with banger after banger. As a frequent Pacha attendee, I can proudly say that this show was worthy of an encore.
