Skrillex, Swedish House Mafia member Sebastian Ingrosso, Zedd and newcomer Baauer have all signed residency deals with the club, and in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the artists appeared cautiously optimistic about the collaboration.
"It's not about having acrobats for my set," Skrillex explains. "For me, personally, the objective is to have something based around your music and something you want to dance to, not something you want to stare at the whole time. But how do you make the environment completely immersive? I think that's the goal for my show, at least."
"Production on dance shows has been escalating for a long time now. Swedish House Mafia shows have been something we build for months before a tour," Ingross says. "But this is putting the production layers back where this all began: the club dance floor. This isn't a huge arena, this is a club, and the vibe in a club is very different and special. This isn't escalating up, this is it taking it back to the dance floor and we'll all see where it takes us and enjoy it."
Although the start dates for the artist residencies have yet to be announced, LIGHT opens on April 26.
