Ever heard of the little super producer known as Skrillex? You probably have. Chances are you are soon going to hear the name Birdy Nam Nam.
Birdy Nam Nam is a 4 man DJ group from France. They have won many turntablist awards including one of the top DJ competition in the world, DMC Team World Championship in 2002. They take samples from records and treat them like real instruments, forming new songs live.
This year, Skrillex played after them at a show, and was so impressed he brought them onto his label, and remixed one of their songs, “Goin’ In” (listen to it on Spotify). Soon enough you will hear more about Birdy Nam Nam.
Millbank (tower in London, UK) was plunged into darkness with the iconic tower acting as the canvas for a never-before-seen spectacular. Each of the 120 metre high building’s 800 windows were covered with vinyl as 16 powerful projectors, stationed 300 metres away on the other side of the river, beamed 3D images onto the structure. Huge butterflies flew across the London skyline and the tower was twisted, pulsated and even fell down. Billed as the “future of live events” the spectacular show was accompanied by music from super producer deadmau5, who created exclusive remixes for the performance — adding the 4th dimension.
We LOVE Spotify. In fact, expect us to share a lot of our favorite music on here via Spotify (in fact, look out for a post tomorrow). A few days ago, Spotify celebrated it’s one year anniversary in the United States, so we thought we’d share their anniversary playlist with the top songs on Spotify from the past year.
Did you know- Spotify isn’t all that new? It has been avaliable for years in the United Kingdom and other countries, however, exactly a year ago- the service became avaliable in the United States.
What is Spotify? Will Curran, our President, likes to describe it as “free, legal iTunes but you never physically download a song”. Will loves Spotify so much, he actually pays for the premium service so he can get all of his music on his phone and enjoy it ad-free. Staff members Franz, Lizzy, and Eileen heavily use Spotify as well.
If you haven’t gotten Spotify yet, it’s free and all you need is a Facebook account. Check it out at www.spotify.com
Flo… what? Flogos stands for Floating Logos. Imagine clouds floating across the sky or your venue, in the shape of your logo or any shape you can dream of! Your imagination is reality with our new service called “Flogos”.
Whether it is an indoor or outdoor event, Flogos is 100% environmentally safe (you don’t even need a permit- and the flogos will evaporate over time). Your logos will stop people in their tracks to watch the shapes float across the air. The shapes created by the Flogos can fly thousands of feet into the air, or even be set to stay closer to the ground based on how much helium is put into the system. It is 100% customizable!
Graduations: We can create a custom graduation year (2013, 2014, etc) shape, and have the year fly across the sky to literally take your class to new heights!
Dance on the clouds theme: Imagine using our low lying fog service (which covers the floor in a low lying fog), and then using the flogos to create real stars and clouds to create an immersive dancing on the clouds theme.
Underwater theme: Use the Flogos to create fish shapes which can swim above the crowd all night long.
Contact us today to receive information on how you can have Flogos at your next event!

At their launch party held on June 16th 2012, Arizona Pro DJs announced the company’s new name Endless Entertainment. A name that not only represents the company’s goal, to endlessly be creating new innovative ideas to make their events truly one of a kind, but it also better represents the services the company provides.
Since 2007 when President, Will Curran founded Endless Entertainment (as Arizona Pro DJs), the company has grown rapidly, gaining not only a large amount of clients, but also a great reputation for providing the best entertainment at teen events. Now in 2012, the company has grown into an all-inclusive entertainment solution providing planning, marketing, production, and entertainment for its’ clients. Endless Entertainment felt it was time to have a new identity that better reflected all the services the company offers.
While operating under Arizona Pro DJs, the company left its mark on the entertainment industry, being named Inc Magazine’s “Coolest College Start-up in America”. Also, their Facebook page (which has over 16,000 fans) was recently named one of the top 5 Facebook pages for small businesses in the world by Social Media Examiner.
The company has grown so fast that they have taken the next step and are expanding outside of Arizona. Going along with their Endless philosophy, they got rid of all limits, and are ready and excited for things to get a whole lot bigger.
“Our commitment and high standards for our events will be the same, but now we want to make them endlessly better.” says Curran.
The success of the Endless Entertainment Launch Party was the first sign that the company has no plans of slowing down. The guests at the VIP Corporate Mixer were impressed and excited to support the company’s new venture, and the kids were raving about how epic the dance party was. Endless has truly started off with a bang!
Nick Labadie from Clique Photo Station says “It’s a huge hit! I love the new logo and name and how the two E’s come together. I am excited to see the expansion!”
“We are so thankful for the support and enthusiasm showed at the launch party, and we can’t wait to blow everyone away with the events we produce in the future” says Curran. “Everyone should go check out www.helloendless.com and see some of the new changes in action!”
Brittany Gazis, VP of Marketing, assures “Endless Entertainment is not just a name change and company expansion, but a promise to our clients and a mind set each member has to exceed limits, and provide ENDLESS ENTERTAINMENT.”

About Endless Entertainment (www.helloendless.com)
The most creative, and high-quality entertainment provider in the universe. Endless Entertainment is dedicated to creating unique, “one night only” dance clubs by combining club and concert quality production elements with high energy entertainment.
Originally written by Janice Vega at College Times
Earlier this year, ASU student startup Arizona Pro DJs was named “Coolest American College Startup” of the year by Inc. magazine. Now, founder Will Curran and his team of DJs, promoters and event technicians are preparing to make some changes to company.
Arizona Pro DJs has been dedicated to throwing some of the biggest, high quality teen dance parties in Arizona and is responsible for events such as the ASU Undie Run and the Fiesta Bowl Block Party. These changes, an Arizona Pro DJs spokeswoman said, will up the ante in terms of entertainment and production value for large scale events and give new direction to the already successful company.
Although the company wasn’t ready to reveal the big news to College Times, account manager and vice president of marketing Brittany Gazis said “things are about to get a whole lot bigger.”
On Friday, the company will make several announcements at the Endless Teen Dance Party, held at the 12 West Main in Mesa. The celebration is a kick-off for the company’s big news and will be held in two parts.
The early part of the evening is the Endless Announcement Party, a corporate mixer and cocktail hour for VIP guests. During the event, Arizona Pro DJs will finally reveal its new direction to market vendors, venues representatives and previous clients.
The second part of the evening will be the teen dance party, which will focus on ages 14 to 18 – the company’s main demographic. As with most of their events, Arizona Pro DJs plans to go all out with a huge visual show complete with high-powered lasers and aerial effects, MCs, photographers and a mix of hip-hop, dub, electro house and top 40 hits all spun the company’s top DJs.
“Basically, this event will be showcasing what we do and celebrating the announcement that we’re going to be making,” Gazis said.
Though mum’s the word when it comes to the big announcements, Gazis did tell us that the keyword to take note of in all of this is “endless.”
What does that mean? We’re not exactly sure, but, despite secrecy, there is speculation as to what the announcements will be on Friday.
In a previous interview with College Times, Curran expressed a desire to rename the company to better reflect the full capacity of services it offers. And according to Gazis, there are plans to expand into different areas in and outside of Arizona.
“We do primarily focus on the high school market, but we really like to do events that are all ages,” Gazis said. “We really want to continue our partnership with ASU and maybe expand that to other universities in the area.”
Over the years, Arizona Pro DJs has developed a great reputation with the local community and established a steady stream of business and clients across the state. The company members’ hope, Gazis said, is that they can continue to grow and impress their customers as they head in new directions.
“We’ve been growing super fast for such a small company and we just want to continue that success by not only thinking outside the box but completely crushing the box and everyone’s expectations,” she said.
To RSVP for the dance party, teens can check out the event pages of the Arizona Pro DJs Facebook. Gazis said they are expecting between 400 and 600 teens to attend.
