2012.03.20 [DAY] 5th Annual Future Classics Pool Party @ The National Hotel w/ PAUL OAKENFOLD
The Future Classics Pool Party Returns to the WMC for its 5th installment of infectious house music at the National Hotel. This sexy pool party is going to be epic. Headlining the Future Classics party is the world famous Paul Oakenfold.
Astonishingly, despite all his success in the worlds of chart music and film, Oakenfold has found time to keep in touch with his roots as a club DJ. The last 3 years he held a weekly residency at the legendary Rain Nightclub at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. Perfecto Vegas was a fully produced show with 75 circus performers, cutting edge visuals and special effects – giving the 3,000–strong crowd a truly unique experience. In 2012 Paul will tour world wide supporting the We Are Planet Perfecto compilation as well as embarking on his Four Seasons tour. He also expands his Las Vegas circuit with dates at Hyde Bellagio, Tao Nightclub at Venetian and Marquee inside The Cosmopolitan. This summer season Paul launches Perfecto Dreams, a pool concept party that will take place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas. We are honored to have him headline our event this year.
As an added punch to the event, Ultra Nate will be celebrating her 20 plus years in House Music. In her two decades of making music, Ultra Naté has remained a musical chameleon, embracing a variety of sounds, from R&B/hip-hop, soul and disco to house, rock and electro-pop. Twenty years after sashaying onto international dance floors with the club anthem, “It’s Over Now,” Naté stands tall and proud, proving that artist longevity, though not common for singers of dance music, is alive and well—and a real possibility for those willing to work hard for the money.
UltraNaté’s 20 plus years in the business comes at a time of non-stop work and recordingsessions. In addition to prepping her eighth studio album Hero Worship (set forrelease in 2012), Ultra Naté’s been busy in the studio with David Morales (forhis upcoming album and hers); Robbie Rivera (for his new album); Quentin Harris(a project entitled Black Stereo Faith that Naté describes as “sexy soul meetsrock with a twinge of disco funk”); Nervo (co-writers of David Guetta’sworldwide chart topping “When Love Takes Over” featuring Kelly Rowland) andNicola Fasano (Italian DJ/producer responsible for the club hit “75, BrazilStreet,” which was reworked by rapper Pitbull for his smash single, “I Know YouWant Me”) and a new EP project with Baltimore’s Unruly Records crew entitled“Things Happen at Night” (a mix of hyped-up hip-hop grooves, raw house beats,heaving bass and ass-shaking beats). Additional collaborations include “WaitingOn You,” a funky disco duet with Destiny’s Child’s Michelle Williams,”RightNow,” with house music innovator Todd Terry and the chart-topping“Destination,” with Tony Moran, a circuit party anthem which has just gone top10 on Billboard’s club chart.
Ultra Nate’ will perform many of her international dance hits. Toround out the party, Japan’s Studio Apartment, Italy’s Harley&Muscle,Groove Junkies, DJ Spen, Joyce Muniz, and plenty of other top internationalacts and live performances to be announced.
