Emerging Los Angeles based DJ duo, Niiko x SWAE have hit the scene with a bang in Vegas and locked down a 2019 residency at super club Hakkasan.
With singles like “Run This Town” and “Flavor” appearing in the Top 20 of the Billboard Dance Club Chart, they offer a refreshing twist on today’s house and future bass music. Beyond the singles, it’s Niiko x SWAE's live show that really sets them apart from their peers. Filled with ambient builds, creative bass lines, and the occasional bass anthem hit, Niiko x SWAE are known for their slow building, but explosive sets.
To celebrate their new residency, the lads took us around Vegas and highlighted their perfect day in the city that has no limits!
Breakfast: MGM Buffet
We like to start off every morning in Vegas at the greatest buffet on the strip, the MGM buffet. From sweet pastries to savory, crispy bacon, the MGM buffet never fails to give us a perfect start to our morning. The MGM property has become home for us in Vegas and we’ve really been taking advantage of all the great amenities inside the hotel.
After wolfing down a quick breakfast from the buffet, we like to hit our favourite day-club/pool in the city: Wet Republic. Wet Republic is home to some of the biggest icons in dance music and we like to come here to draw some inspirations for our live sets as well as get a loose before our show.
We always have an amazing time whenever we go to Wet Republic…. from what we remember.
Dinner: Hakkasan Restaurant
After dancing it up at Wet Republic, we like to go back to one of the great hotel rooms at the MGM that we usually stay at and take a quick nap/get ready for dinner and our performance. For dinner, we might seem boring but we go to the same restaurant before every one of our shows.
The Hakkasan restaurant easily has the best Asian cuisine in Las Vegas and we always like to bring our close friends and family to dinner with us. Hakkasan restaurant has the perfect vibes to get us pumped up and ready to go for our show.
Best Show: Niiko x SWAE @ Hakkasan Nightclub
There might be some bias in this answer, but you won’t know what you’re missing until you come party with us at one of our Hakkasan shows this year. From opening for Kaskade to Steve Aoki, we’ve been lucky enough to perform for some of the greatest crowds inside of the greatest venue the city has ever seen.
From world-class lighting and production to probably the craziest sound system we’ve ever gotten to command, we’re beyond blessed to call Hakkasan our home for 2019.
Best Casino: MGM
After we’re done performing we typically will stay to see the headliner’s show and then we like to go straight to the MGM casino to do a little post-show celebrating. The MGM casino is our favourite place to do this because of how large it is.
It’s not hard to find the blackjack tables, but it is hard to leave them. After playing a couple hands and hopefully winning some money, we’ll end our night back in the amazing hotel rooms at the MGM and get some much needed sleep after a crazy day in Vegas.
Where to catch them next:
TONIGHT: Cash Cash June 7th at Hakkasan Las Vegas.
