One of the biggest draws in bass music was once a Surrender resident, but his only Vegas date on the books will be hosted at Brooklyn Bowl—which may be a better fit for the unconventional DJ.

These trance kings ruled the late 1990s and early 2000s, but now even former serotonin sultan Oakenfold can barely crack the DJ Mag Top 100, and PvD hasn’t played the Strip in a few years. With trance supposedly coming back, maybe he’ll find himself a new club home.
