There’s been much talk about this year’s trend of nightclubs incorporating more live performances into their DJ-dominated event mix, and we’re seeing it happen on the Las Vegas Strip. But if LA-based duo BRKLYN is headlining, the club and the audience might be getting that blend all in one night.
Cameron Alexander and Cody Nadeau are known for combining live instrumentation with the driving beats and anthemic synth lines that define the BRKLYN sound, in the tracks they produce along with their high-energy performances. You can hear and feel the difference immediately—the pounding piano chords in “Steal Your Heart,” featuring Lenachka, or the skittering guitars in “Can’t Get Enough,” featuring Mariah McManus.
BRKLYN has been making noise in Las Vegas over the summer with powerful sets at Aria’s Liquid Pool Lounge and at Jewel, where the pair will return for Flawless Mondays on December 5. They’ve also teamed up with fellow Californians WeAreTreo for some memorable performances at those clubs. This week, BRKLYN makes its headlining debut at Hakkasan, the game-changing Vegas club that continues to evolve its sound and programming. These guys should fit right in. BRKLYN at Hakkasan at MGM Grand, November 24 & December 17.
