DOWNTOWN GRAND TO HOST SLOW ROAST PICNIC, A POOLSIDE DJ SHOWCASE, ON SUNDAY, JUNE 22

Event Takes Place During Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival Week at PICNIC, Downtown Grand’s Urban Rooftop Pool Experience

The Downtown Grand Las Vegas and Slow Roast Records announce “Slow Roast Picnic,” a poolside DJ showcase to take place on Sunday, June 22, during Electric Daisy Carnival week in Las Vegas. PICNIC, the new urban rooftop pool experience at Downtown Grand, will host a uniquely relaxed, hassle-free day of music, drinks, good friends and great food in an atmosphere reminiscent of a laid-back house party rather than an overhyped, overpriced club scene.

In true Downtown Las Vegas fashion, no velvet ropes, dress codes or high-priced cover charges will be involved. The DJ lineup includes label boss and three-time DMC champion DJ Craze, trap music all-stars Loudpack, Mr. Carmack of legendary Team Supreme, Ape Drums, Sluggers, Codes and Louie Arson, with more to be announced. In addition, the event will feature multiple cameo appearances and surprise secret guest performances sure to delight EDM fans.

Tickets for this limited capacity event start at just $12 (plus taxes and fees), but will increase as the event draws near. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets early at www.slowroastpicnic.com.

Designed to put a modern twist on a classic leisure activity, PICNIC at Downtown Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is the city’s newest and only urban rooftop pool experience. Whimsical and nostalgic, PICNIC is reminiscent of a ‘50s pool oasis, which sets the scene for live entertainment and film screenings throughout the year.  Guests are invited to share a picnic basket and a blanket on the grass, have a meal at a communal picnic table, and take a dip in the Infinity pool, all while soaking up the incomparable vistas of Downtown3rd and Fremont Street Experience.

ABOUT DJ CRAZE
5 X DMC World Champion, Slow Roast Records; facebook.com/crazearoni

“My mom always taught me I could do anything I put my mind to. So when she asked what I wanted to do with my turntables, I told her, ‘Be the best DJ in the world,’” Craze casually laughs. And that he proved – three times at the DMC World Championships, an unprecedented record, and a title that no other solo DJ has yet to match. While Craze is regarded internationally and unquestionably as one of the best scratch DJs in existence, the world has also recognized that Craze is a second to none club DJ – he has toured the globe over, from Jamaica to Australia to Japan to Iceland to France to the country where he was born, Nicaragua. All DJ’ing aside, Craze is also a world- renowned producer, releasing wildly successful drum & bass records with labels such as Cartel Recordings, Breakbeat Kaos and C.I.A and other hip hop inspired productions with the likes of DMC Records, Ninja Tune Records, OM Records and K7 Records.

ABOUT AC SLATER
Trouble & Bass; facebook.com/djacslater

AC Slater has established himself as one of the most in demand remixers and producers in the world right now and his growing reputation is showing no signs of slowing down. Raised on ’90 hip hop and nourished by old school rave, AC has cultivated these influences to give birth to his own style of music production. A pioneer in the current electro and heavy bass sound, AC is one of the most talked about and sought after dance artists around. His tracks consistently top the Hype Machine and radio airplay charts, most notably his remix of the international hit “Show Me Love” by Robin S and his remix of underground classic “Turn The Music Up” being voted one of Moby’s top 10 tracks of the decade.

ABOUT FLINCH
SMOG, Trouble & Bass; facebook.com/flinchbass

Los Angeles based beat maker Adam Glassco, better known as Flinch, is no stranger to the EDM world. A veteran producer, Flinch has progressed effortlessly from his beginnings in drum & bass and then electro, to current endeavors into jump-up and deeper, more melodic synth-based dubstep. The succession of sounds Flinch adheres to reflect a new breed of artists distinguished most by his ability to marry a massive, tear-out bassline with a melody that could serenade your grandmother, or create tracks that pair careful grit and distortion with catchy songwriting. A true tastemaker, Flinch consistently delivers a wide selection of cuts riding between the UK funky, club, moombahton, techno, garage and dubstep genre lines. There is an undeniable buzz in the bass music world for Flinch’s recent productions on labels such as SMOG and Trouble & Bass, most notably his massive single “World On Fire,” which has often been championed by Skrillex, 12th Planet and Datsik, and is making a huge impact with audiences worldwide.
