Hot Since 82 – ‘TAKEN NYC’


You arrive at a rendezvous point, you are blindfolded and bundled into the back of a blacked out bus, before being whisked them away to a secret location. You have been TAKEN and are about to go to a private and utterly bespoke all night-long Hot Since 82 rave.

TAKEN is a new concept from Hot Since 82, in which dance music’s most exciting new talent builds on the existing party concept by adding elements of immersive theatre and a surprise journey in to the unknown. Who are you? Where are you going? Is the person next to you, really who you think they are? It’s RAVE meets Sleep No More, if you will.

Hot Since 82: “This is one of the most exciting and interesting experiences I’ve had as a DJ! TAKEN is about pushing the boundaries and giving something back to my fans, a bespoke event that’ll be remembered for years to come. It’s also a little nod to the old illegal rave days, where people didn’t know where the party was being held.”

Having sold out TAKEN L.A. in a matter of hours, Hot Since 82 now unveils plans to bring TAKEN to New York City on Saturday 20th June 2015.  There is no public ticket link to TAKEN events, so fans must register for the chance to be TAKEN here:http://www.youwillbeTAKEN.com/NYC

Now watch what happened when London and Snowbombing were TAKEN! Firstly London…

And now Snowbombing…

Hot Since 82’s trajectory has been nothing short of incredible. 4 times Pete Tong ‘Essential New Tunes’, 2 times BBC ‘Essential Mixes’, 2013’s groundbreaking ‘Little Black Book’, 2014’s Knee Deep In Sound mix album (on his new label of the same name), Top 10 Beatport seller of all time with his ‘Bigger Than Prince’ remix, Mixmag cover star, performing live accompanied by a string quartet, 4 times sell out North & South America tours including Coachella, 3 times tantalizing Ibiza seasons. You’d be forgiven for thinking he had enough on his plate but the ever-evolving star wanted to give something back to the fans.
