With pre-sale tickets eclipsing the 1500 mark, DJ Pauly D’s DC Nightlife debut at Fur Nightclub was bound to get a little crazy. By the time we were set up and ready to start checking people in (10), the line had already extended to the end of the block! The excitement surrounding the Jersey Shore star-turned Vegas resident was contagious. The girls were blushing and the guys were wishing they had more gel in their hair. The other entrance to Fur went from the door and split at the end of the building, one half going around, the other going through the parking lot. It was reckless!!

Needless to say, the club filled up early and was packed ‘til late. Upon arrival and interview, we learned quite a bit about DJ Pauly D. Fact. He looks exactly the same in person. Fact. He takes his DJing seriously to the point where he doesn’t like to party until after the set. Fact. He’ll be coming out with more productions next year. You can catch the entire interview in the coming week.

As the crowd held their drinks to the sky, the chants of “PAU-LY, PAU-LY, PAU-LY” were deafening. And the way girls treat him on stage; he may just be the 2010 version of Tom Jones.

As many Italians say, they like to do things old school. Pauly spins Serato vinyl, which is as old school as it gets w/o carrying crates. Not many DJs can freak a turntable still, so it was nice to see PD mixing it up. Being that his music library spans nearly every genre of club music, we were interested to see what he would bring to DC Nightlife. He was a DJ long before he was the poster boy for Guido-life. He knew just what we wanted.

Early on he dropped two of the hottest dance pop tracks around, Stereo Love and his current favorite, No Parlo Americano. From there he went into a steady flow of good EDM including: Dennis Ferrer – Hey Hey, Tiesto & Diplo – C’mon, The Tempter Trap – Sweet Disposition (Axwell and Dirty South Remix), Tim Berg – Alcoholic, a Dutch house-esque remix of Everything but the Girl – Missing and everyone’s favorite Avicii – Bromance! From there Pauly moved into a more poppy set list which included David Guetta and Wynter Gordon – Dirty Talk, Chris Kaeser – Who’s in the House, Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull – I Like It, Far East Movement – Fly Like a G6, David Guetta and Afrojack – Louder than Words, Guetta and Kelly Rowland – When Love Takes Over and DJ Class – I’m the Shit (DJ Pauly D Edit). He then reverted back to EDM with tracks like Deadmau5 – Ghosts & Stuff, Wolfgang Gartner – Undertaker, Bassment Jaxx – Where’s Your Heat At, Afrojack – Zeggy and Steve Angello – Knas. We’re pretty sure he managed to sneak ‘Thriller’ in there somewhere too, which will ALWAYS have the crowd going off.

It was satisfying to hear Pauly spin the EDM that we as Glow fans know and love. But in all honestly, we were more impressed by his ability to mix in and out of top 40 and our style of house music. By doing this, he’s able to introduce an entirely new demographic to quality dance music, and that is truly an amazing thing. We take our hats off to Pauly D. We can’t wait to hear the album next year and reaaallly can’t wait until the next time he’s back at Fur Nightclub. Cause like he said, DC Nightlife is where the big dogs play!!
