New World Punx Make Their Vegas Debut

The warriors came out to play at LiFE Nightclub Friday night with Markus Schulz and Ferry Corsten. The duo made their first-ever Vegas appearance as New World Punx, kicking off a year-long residency at the venue.

Opening the set with their signature intro, anime caricatures of the two DJs flashed across the LCDs above the booth, while a sound bite from the 1979 film The Warriors chanted “Warriors, come out to play!” From there, it was non-stop pulse-pounding, high-energy electro beats with hints of the duo’s trance origins ever present throughout. The set featured an eclectic selection of influences, everything from the Punx’s current releases “Romper” and “Torque” as well was MOTi’s newest track “Lion,” to electro remixes of Galantis’ “Runaway,” Fatboy Slim classic “Praise You,” Capital Cities’ “Safe and Sound” and even the trance classics “Take Me Away” and “Adagio for Strings.” Closing out the evening, the duo pulled a bit of a twist, wrapping up with Ten Walls’ “Walking with Elephants” mixed into the Eric Prydz favorite “Pjanoo.”

Overall, the crowd reception at LiFE was extremely energetic as they danced the night away to the approximately two-hour set and Punx fans came in force, their presence on full display in the form of various New World Punx cardboard signs and flags that could be seen through out the crowd. ★★★✩✩
