Tony Moran brings DESTINATION experience to XL Nightclub

 On Saturday, August 24th, Destination embarks on a
mission to recapture the greatness of the New York City dance floor.


 “I respect
and love all of the Ibiza parties that have been circling the globe with their
events but we are now taking back control of the American dance floor,”
declares Destination founder Tony Moran. “We want everyone to once again
recognize New York City as the party capital of the world!” The high- speed
journey begins at
11pm at NYC’s XL Nightclub (512 W 42nd St) and continues into
the wee morning hours. 

Tony Moran will steer the decks, along with Brazilian dj
Gustavo Scorpio in the early hours with nightlife icon Flava hosting and
special live performances by international superstars Kristine W and Vernessa
Mitchell. A particular highlight of the evening will be the integration of music
videos displayed on a video wall customized by Tony and gigantic DNA
installation by Michael Longo of Sound Factory fame over the dance floor,
seamlessly synched to Tony’s original club mixes. Tickets are available now at
www.xlnightclub.com.

“Destination will be about movement, motion,
evolution, sex and sensuality,” explains Moran, a two-time Grammy nominated
remixer/ producer/singer-songwriter and DJ known for remixing popular songs by
Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Madonna and countless others. “I will use the DJ booth
as my laboratory to build new songs and remixes live.”

Destination will offer fans an elaborate NYC
experience with unique party elements that have never been seen anywhere else
in the world. The most notable will be the introduction of Pioneer Pro DJ
technology on the dancefloor, synching Tony’s original club mixes to video.
“The idea is for the visuals to be more than just dancers, performers and
lights,” explains Moran. “These videos will bring the club classics and future
classics to life.”

This is the reason why Destination is taking place
at XL Nightclub.
The venue offered Moran the freedom to bring in extra massive
sound, including $50,000 enhanced sound system exclusively for the night, turbo
charged with state-of-the-art subwoofers, ultra crisp tweeters, and
individually controlled speakers for Tony to create a true 3D sound experience.
Brand new visual enhancements will fill the club to make the magic happen.
“It’s not about the DJ in the booth anymore”, he continues. “It’s about putting
the spotlight on the dance floor and whisking clubbers on a fantastical
excursion of the senses.”

The evening will include special performances by
club superstars Kristine W and Vernessa Mitchell plus the brilliant,
circuit-favorite Flava performing Tony’s Destination XL Anthem.

Kristine and Tony have collaborated together on
several tracks, most recently hitting #1 on the US Billboard club charts with
“Walk Away”. Miss W has been a staple of the New York City nightlife scene for
over fifteen years. Her first single, “Feel What You Want” debuted in
New York City clubs. “Kristine W’s stronger than ever, and it just made total
sense to showcase her newest and greatest at Destination,” says Moran.

It gives him the opportunity to debut his recently
completed remix of Kristine W’s next single, “So Close To Me” with full length
extended video on the Video Wall. “It’s progressive Kristine W,” he continues.
“My remix reshapes her song for the progressive worldwide movement without
abandoning my circuit roots I am especially proud of it.”

Moran will also debut his brand new Vernessa
Mitchell song. Vernessa Mitchell is a gospel recording artist whose vocal
versatility has been heralded by R&B and House audiences. Her uplifting
house songs have charted seven times on the Billboard Dance charts. Hits
include “This Joy”, “Took My Life” (Billboard Club Play Song of the Year in
2004), and “Accept Me”, besides her timeless NYC anthem “Reap (What You Sow).
Moran is especially excited about the new mix as this marks his first
collaboration with the Grammy-nominated vocalist.

 “I’ve always admired Vernessa,”
he says. “I love the message of her songs and of course, that voice! I had been
reaching out to her for months trying to work with her. Miraculously, things
fell into place and it all came together. I’m so proud of my first song with
her.”


Tony Moran aims to launch Destination to other major cities. “We want to ‘Take
It All The Way’”, he says, slyly referencing another new anthem he wrote that
he will debut at Destination. “We’re building on those great Ibiza parties, but
going beyond the circuit sound and creating unique dance events with more of a
New York City thang.”

In the days prior to the event, Moran is releasing
Tony Moran+Deborah Cooper+Deep Influence, “Planet XL (That’s How We Do)” on
Wednesday, August 21; Tony Moran presents Vernessa Mitchell, “Rise!” on
Thursday, August 22; and Tony Moran’s futuristic progressive take on Tony Moran
& Ultra Naté, “Destination” on Friday, August 23.

NYC nightlife fixtures at all the cool events,
Dougie Meyer, Dina Delicious, Roze Black and Mark Nelson, are hosting the event,
and Moran has invited the singers, producers, djs and entertainment industry
giants to the party.

The event is produced by XL in association with
Sugar House and Continuous Cool.
