It seems Las Vegas will see its first-ever tech house residencies this year thanks to WynnÂ â the luxury hotel officially confirmed tech house tastemakers Jamie Jones and Solomun as two of the brandâs new residents for 2018. Jones and Solomun will regularly appear at Wynnâs upscale nightclub, XS, over the course of the year.
Wynnâs enlistment effectively expands the breadth of electronic subgenres offered in the so-called entertainment capital. High profile Vegas residencies generally gravitate towards more mainstream styles of music, and as such, widelyÂ known figures central to dance music like Diplo and David Guetta have long shined on the strip.
Wynnâs inclination for a more esoteric subgenre of electronic music in its residencies this year speaks to the brandâs movements to diversify the traditional musical landscape of the tourist hotspot. The nightlife entityâs managing partner, Alex Cordova, has additionally confirmed that South African house stylist Black Coffee will also be performing at XS during 2018, Wynn recently welcomed the artist to the “Wynn Nightlife family,” a booking that only further evincesÂ Wynn’s strides to shake up the Strip this year.
