Electronic dance music act to play at WET Deck for holiday pool party

Scottsdale, Ariz. – W Scottsdale, Steve LeVine Entertainment & Public Relations and Disco Donnie Presents bring another electronic dance music (EDM) holiday celebration for Labor Day weekend with internationally acclaimed DJ Max Vangeli on Sunday, September 2, to W Scottsdale, 7227 E. Camelback Road in Old Town Scottsdale. The event begins at 12 p.m. Born and raised in Eastern Europe, Max Vangeli moved to San Francisco in his early teens. Vangeli gained his first recognition for his music in 2008 when BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong played his first single, “Crazed”, a smash-hit which was immediately signed to Chris Lake’s Rising Music label. Vangeli’s popularity continued to grow as he partnered with best friend AN21 for their remix of Ellie Goulding’s ‘Lights’. The track scored a spot on a special edition of the 2010 BRIT Critic’s Choice Award winner’s debut album “Listen”, which reached the No. 1 spot on the UK Billboard Top 100 Albums chart. That same year MTV named Vangeli “One of the most promising artists for 2011” and DJ Mag labeled him as one of the “Top 5 DJ’s to watch.” Vangeli’s work has continued to exceed all expectations. With a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix alongside AN21, bookings at internationally-acclaimed clubs from Ibiza to Miami and mega-festival’s like Sensation White and Electric Daisy Carnival, a production roster featuring artists like Steve Angello, Gorillaz, Erick Morillo and Switchfoot and the support of some of the world’s biggest DJ’s, Vangeli’s career continues to rise. Earlier this month his show in Central Park with Steve Angello and AN21 sold out in one day. Vangeli’s debut album with AN21 titled ‘People of the Night’ is set to release early September. The album will include collaborations with Tiesto for the title track, and promises others collaborations from a host of friends with various musical backgrounds. Their first single released from the album, a collaboration with Steve Angello called ‘H8RS’, has already been given the title of ‘Hottest Track in the World’ by BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.
