Mad Decent brought their summertime tour, kick starting their two day blowout festivities this past Friday, August 6th with a Pre-Party at the Diesel gallery store on Greene Street. With music provided by artist Maluca and DJ Venus, the space was filled beyond capacity with the energy of the young and trendy along with industry professionals alike taking advantage of a few complimentary drinks to keep them cool from heat. Saturday was day two at Chelsea Piers giving way to one of the most picture perfect days with cool sunny breezes and a memorable block party courtesy of the Mad Decent and Jelly crew. Diesel hosted the day long event showcasing talent from eleven emerging artists that included Eli Escobar, Paul Devro, DJ Sega and Bathroom Sexxx who dropped dubstep, house, salsa and electro heavy beats till sundown. Diesel dunk tanks were set up at the pier, along with the invention of the Diesel Dollar ie “money” which allowed guests to buy anything onsite from block party VIP access, Mad Decent merchandise, custom air horns. Amp Energry came prepared with a tent setup giving away free beverages along with the a href=”http://www.tacombi.com/”>Tacombi taco van. We tried them and they are amazing- a little small in size but packed with a flavor-filled punch. An appearance by Diplo and Kid Sister would have added the icing on the cake- overall a massively successful day. Thanks so much to DP and NE over at Iced Media for everything. Take a look at a few flix of what went down. A video recap to soon follow.
