JULY 9, 2014
For the next three consecutive Fridays, Bounce Boat, The World’s Premier Dance Cruise, will be bringing the heat and keeping it classy while giving avid music fans a chance to escape the typical nightclub and festival scene with their biggest lineup announcements yet!
The July 2014 Summer Tour kicks off this Friday, July 11th with legendary hip-hop mastermind Just Blaze headlining the Main Stage along with Chicago’s very own Willy Joy, dropping his assortment of bass music steeped in traditions of house and juke. Over on the SkyDeck, melodic dubstep trailblazer Minnesota will be throwing down tracks off his recent Voyager EP (free download HERE), while party-goers can shake it to Buku’s signature booty-popping bump ‘n’ grind tunes and exclusive unreleased tracks. Listen to his latest single “Cake Dough Cheddar” which just dropped on the Never Say Die Volume 3 compilation below.
Next weekend on July 18th, Bounce Boat will be making more waves on the Hudson with two massive EDM acts. Headlining the Main Stage is Danish producer DJ Mike Hawkins who makes a stop on his own North American REVOLT tour – named after his innovative and hard-hitting progressive house tune which is out today July 7th via Doorn Records. Hawkins is donating all of the proceeds from the single to UNICEF (an organization that works for childrens rights and opportunities world wide) so head over HERE to support the cause.
Electro-punk DJ/production duo Designer Drugs take over the SkyDeck for this one, as they continue making a name for themselves by pushing the boundaries and tearing up venues around the world with their heady, mind-melting sounds. This March the NYC-based duo released their sophomore full-length LP, The Drugs Are In Control, which you can download for free HERE.
Closing out the Bounce Boat July calendar in the grandest way possible, on July 25th platinum recording indie pop duo Capital Cities, will be making their New York debut in the form of a DJ set by Sebu Simonian. The artists behind the mega-hit “Safe and Sound” are in the midst of touring with Katy Perry and were recently interviewed about their dizzying rise to fame in an interview with the Miami New Times HERE. Disco house producer Solidisco and the extravagant genre-defying medleys of Brenmar are also set to play Bounce Boat’s Main Stage, while artists for the remaining two stages will be announced soon.

Stay tuned for additional Bounce Boat lineup announcements for August and September, which will continue to feature various top-tier DJs and dance music genres across the map.
