Never Say Never Sunset Cruise: Sasha + James Zabiela

The U.K.'s Sasha might have given up his status as the world's top DJ to various German and Dutch spinners in the past few years, but he's still No.1 in the hearts of many New Yorkers, due both to his old residency (with John Digweed) at Twilo and the way his music has mutated from big-room progressive house into a twisty, deeper sort of beast. He and the like-minded James Zabiela are at the helm at this high-grade cruise aboard the Lady Windridge, complete with open bar, seated buffet and what we assume will be a pretty hot view of the fireworks. Tickets are being sold through a lottery system; go to for info on that.
