Videos from the Eye Heart SF >> NYE party in San Francisco featuring DJ Z-Trip have been posted to the zBORED YouTube Channel. This year's party at Fort Mason was superb to the max. While last year's party with Steve Aoki was the blastest blast, this year's really blew it away with improvement in every aspect. Firstly, a much more talented DJ in Z-Trip who's broad style appeals to nearly every one of the thousands in the house. This gala was way bigger and yet the overall operational upgrade made for more bars, shorter lines, more drinks, premium booze, a more efficient coat check, unstressed bladders, etc. Please believe Eye Heart SF now knows how to do it proper.
After a few hours of DJ Craze out of Miami, Z-Trip took over the decks with about 30 minutes to spare before the 2012 ball dropped. He dropped in with a dope remix to La Roux's 'In For The Kill' then got the pavilion popping with a mashup of M.I.A.'s 'Paper Planes' and 'Passin Me By' from Pharcyde. Shortly thereafter, we approached the final 10 minutes of 2011 and Z began announcing the minute markers.
Then the ball dropped and Z-Trip ran with it dropping a laserrific 808-version of the New Years song [Auld Lang Syne] to wish us a happy 2012 then the Skrillex remix to 'Levels' by Avicii. The rest of the night was classic Z mashing up hella Bay Area hip hop, Nor*Cal shit and a variety of tight house from over the last decade.
As expected, the party was dope to the max. Again. With the positive progression of this NYE party and the talent year over year, I don't see why I won't be back in the city again to celebrate 2013. Cheers to a fun-filled 2012, everyone. Happy New Year!
