Your average college student at a University tends to all have similar worries; it’s usually money, jobs, or midterms. Justin Jay though, has been able to balance the same academic stresses while producing major hits for the last three years and touring the world. Luckily for us, the youngest Member in the Dirtybird Players club will be headlining our Fortune 421 Stage at Haunted Harrah’s. To give you a little background, Justin Jay first made his imprint on the scene back in 2012 with “Femme Fatal,” gaining support from nearly every relevant DJ, and ultimately getting the track release through Dirtybird.

Viceroy has one simple rule when it comes to making music, “Summertime, all the time.” Through this rule he has been able to separate himself from the normal realms of dance music, creating a unique sound and following. We are proud to announce that Viceroy will be closing our last Fortune 421 Pool Party at The Hollywood Roosevelt. Over the last few years Viceroy has released an array of originals and remixes, bringing new life to some of the biggest hits of the 80s, 90s, and early 00s. His remixes have covered a wide variety of artist including Nelly, Will Smith, Lady Gaga, and Passion Pit just to list a few. We think that Viceroy and his feel good vibes are a perfect fit for closing our Pool Party Series at The Hollywood Roosevelt. See you this Saturday!
Treasure Fingers has been a household name in the Disco House scene ever since releasing his first hit single “Cross The Dancefloor” in 2008 on Fools Gold Records. For the last seven years he has become a regular at major festivals and clubs around the world while collaborating with an array of singers, bands, and producers. We are proud to announce that Treasure Fingers will be headlining our Liquid Pool Party for Fortune 421’s Vegas Vacation. Just like any great producer, Treasure Fingers has continued to evolve and grow with the ever changing ebb and flow of the music scene. His latest release is a collaborative effort with the Atlanta based vocalist, BOSCO. The EP is hard to classify brining influence from Disco, House, Hip-Hop, and Bass Music. All things considered it severs its main purpose, which is to make you dance! Check out the EP below and get excited for Treasure Fingers to join us in Las Vegas.

All right. Now that the whole “trap” “dubstep” movement is over, let’s get back to the kind of music that makes girls want to shake their asses and doesn’t sound like transformers having sex.
I’m talking about the music that swept the dance floors in Chicago after disco’s departure in the late 1970s: House. Songs with a synthesized “four on the floor” beat, syncopated hi-hat and soulful vocal samples that would (hopefully) have The Godfather of House, Frankie Knuckles, head bobbing
Spanish DJ and producer, Groovebox, has been making moves in Europe and had 6 tracks on Beatport’s top 100 charts in both House and Tech House in 2013. His music is funky, underground tech house that delivers an even bouncy kind of sound that’s light on vocals, but made to dance to.
He’s spent the last two years touring in Europe, gaining regular club and radio support from artists like Mark Knight, Bob Sinclair, Roger Sanchez and more.
But if you’re not planning on jet setting off to Spain anytime soon, Fortune is flying him in for this US debut on March 4, 2014. That’s right, kids. Fortune is bringing beats, beads and booty shakin’ to San Diego’s Mardi Gras celebration this year! We’ll also be having him play our Vegas Spring Break trip if you’re up for a quick flight to Las Vegas!
