San Diego summers > mean Intervention Sundays at the Hard Rock Hotel downtown. The 2011 season of rooftop pool parties in front of the illest DJ's on the planet just kicked off this month and has already boasted power sets by Paul Oakenfold and Benny Benassi. This monumental Memorial weekend mayhem was fueled by Armin Van Buuren [SAT] and Above & Beyond [SUN]. Fucking. Brilliance.
Stir Crazy kick-started the party with some decent house on the green. It was a small hungover crowd initially and it was chilly for a minute but sometime around 2pm those clouds peaced out, the beats dropped harder and the green was covered with a massive party [this is some of the craziness getting stirred up in it's lukewarm stage].
At 4pm sharp the Brits hopped on the decks and set it off. Paavo and Tony of Above & Beyond eased in with some euphoric illness while the rest of the scattered party migrated front stage and proceeded to get moving for real [brilliance in motion below]. These crafty blokes were the perfect backdrop to a Sunday Funday afternoon in sunny southern California.
The p-posse will definitely be definitely making a trip back to SD this 4th of July weekend to do it again for Gabriel & Dresden and Edward Maya, crunching bottles of Ketel and Patron. Jump right in and until then, you stay classy.
