The first installment in a new mix compilation series, Club Life, Vol. 1: Las Vegas finds DJ Tiësto in fine, big-room-during-prime-time form, spinning a slick set of trance-influenced house numbers along with the more melodic side of tech-house. Henrik B’s moody opener is a keeper, along with Lune’s dreamy tech dream “Girls with Bangs,” while Tiësto’s bleepy collaboration with Marcel Woods, “Don’t Ditch,” offers sweet, cold relief after two cuts of vocal trance power ballads. Things ramp up to “Fire in Your New Shoes” where Dragonette’s Martina conjures the spirit of Eartha Kitt while Kaskade gets nostalgic for the classic tribal house sound. Last and certainly not least, juggernaut meets juggernaut as Tiësto and Diplo team for the twitchy party closer “C’mon.” As far as the Vegas flavor, there are no Killers or slot machines clinking as they pay out, but if you’re a club fan from Sin City, you’d be proud this selector thinks so much of your town that he stuck its name on this prime slice of club music.
