It seems as though Made Events has been on a roll in 2013. Governors Island has become host to some of the biggest names in dance music over the last couple of years and Made Events has shown no signs of it slowing down.
Bassjackers have seen huge success recently (Check out their awesome interview with Undrgrnd Sound at Echostage DC.), so it was just fitting that NYC got a taste of what they’re all about. With their announcement of joining Bingo Beach as one of the first events at the secluded island this summer, fans and listeners who had seen the duo at EDC NY quickly bought up tickets. Marlon and Ralph were set to perform alongside MakJ, Tritonal as well as the headlining Bingo Players. I went to the island with a high expectation, especially after being front row for their set at Electric Daisy Carnival just one month prior, and boy, was I impressed.
Before I explain the chaos Marlon started, we have to talk about Tritonal. Their ability to seamlessly change the entire atmosphere on an island definitely impressed the most. With Chad being the entertainer that he is, a big gathering starts to feel a lot more intimate. Dropping tracks such as “Never Say Goodbye”, and their very own festival mix of “Bullet That Saved Me”, everyone seemed to enjoy the ebb and flow. They finished off by holding up their flag, paying homage to all their fellow Tritonians.

The moment that I was anticipating had arrived. Marlon and Ralph took the mic before taking the decks and amped New York up: “MAKE SOME NOISE!!!” is all I heard before I joined the crowd in a frenzy. Their set was filled with hard-hitting bangers, unexpected high’s and low’s, and an energy that seemed to reverberate through everyone’s bones. The duo dropped “Untz” on our heads at the perfect time, and of course Martin Garrix’s “Animals” was also a crowd favorite. The front couple of rows were soaked in champagne after Marlon unloaded a bottle, which gave the set the perfect touch.
Bassjackers have undeniably climbed the ladder and made their sound heard, and rightfully so. The delicate balance of the precision and the madness their sets bring, truly shows how in-sync the duo is. NYC can’t wait to have them back on the decks.
