Jeremih (aka Jeremih Felton) is a 27-year-old Chicagoan whose musical efforts receive regular local radio play, and should be familiar to LI club aficionados as his collaborations with such rap stars as 50 Cent...Read more »
Despite the fact that temperatures for the week immediately following Labor Day (Sept. 1) are forecast to reach regular highs above 80 degrees, the imminent arrival of autumn is apparent in several ways — such as children returning to school, Hamptons hotspots preparing to close for the season and already on sale in department stores.

When a spot is really hot, the usual move is to “run” over and hang out – but on Sunday morning the staff at Dublin Deck in Patchogue would like you to actually run away from its waterside location…and then return, following a three-mile jaunt.

When contemplating which local public venues and event spaces are the most techno-friendly, Cedar Creek Park in Seaford might not immediately come to mind – but it has certainly proven to be a worthy spot for finding some of the hardest beats spun anywhere this year on Long Island.

When it comes to holidays that inspire bars, clubs and other nightlife-friendly spots to throw special events, Cinco de Mayo is a generally solid occasion for celebrations. But with the 2014 observance of the Mexican army's victory in the Battle of Puebla in 1862 landing on a Monday, it seems likely that the overall Long Island Cinco de Mayo party calendar will end up somewhat lighter than in previous...Read more »
The popularity of freestyle is still widely held on Long Island --and if that statement needs any backing, consider the strong turnouts received at most “Freestyle Explosions.”
These “explosions” -- a term which has generally been attached to the freestyle concerts held quarterly around the Island over the past few years -- seems to relate to its standard game plan of presenting rapid-fire...Read more »
With all the live freestyle taking place on Long Island this month, one might get the impression that the onetime local phenomenon is due for a comeback.
Flip the calendar in reverse about 25 to 30 years, and you'd find virtually every club on LI had DJs spinning the danceable genre. And whether heard on the dance floor or cruising in the car while listening to radio stations (like WQHT-FM...Read more »
