Light Nightclub became the latest Vegas megaclub to announce its 2014 talent roster, and it continues the Great DJ Shuffle begun earlier this week with Hakkasan.
However, most notable about the Light Group/Cirque du Soleil collaboration's newest signings is the one not stolen from another local club: Carl Cox. The British house/techno legend has finally joined the Vegas residency club, which adds some needed credibility and experience to Light's commercial-house-heavy calvary. For the last two years, the man known as Coxy has curated his own stage at Electric Daisy Carnival, and last year he even played a main stage set.
Other additions include former Wynn Nightlife-aligned DJs Dirty South, Sultan and Ned Shepard, GTA and Norman Doray, and ex-Hakkasan headliner Laidback Luke.
With Hakkasan already having revealed its 2014 DJs, we eagerly anticipate seeing who Wynn Nightlife signs for their own team, given the holes left by their pilfering competitors. One interesting move it has already made: convincing Skrillex that he should be shared with Light. The bassy producer/DJ has already lined up a February 1 gig at XS, his former stomping ground. And it did snag Zedd from Light, with the "Clarity" producer playing XS a day before Skrillex.
Among Light's returning musical personnel: former Swedish House Mafia members Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso, their fellow Swede Alesso, popular EDM trio Krewella and turntablist A-Trak.
