LAMBORGHINI AVENTADOR SVJ COUPE | #iRockParties

Lamborghini has unveiled a new flagship Aventador model, the Aventador SVJ. Picking up where the Aventador SV left off, the SVJ pushes well into hypercar territory with a slew of improvements.

A normally-aspirated V12 send 759bhp and 531lb ft of torque to all for wheels, a power output identical to the ultra-exclusive Centurino. The all-wheel-drive bias has been moved 3% rearward, and roll bars and suspension settings have been updated to compensate.

The SVJ is limited to a total of 900 units, and with a Nordschleife lap record under its belt, this is one of the most impressive cars to come from Lamborghini in its storied history.

20 YEARS OF ULTRA — EPISODE 2: DANCE MUSIC ARRIVES | #iRockParties

While dance music was created in the United States, Europe took the early lead when it came to hosting large events. In the early 2000s, local laws and regulations made it very difficult for large electronic music gatherings to take place.

As a result, many popular DJs skipped the US entirely on their tours, or performed in clubs in only a few select cities. Ultra Music Festival in Miami became a notable exception. At the beginning of the new millennium, this festival was one of the only places in the United States where electronic music fans could see a large number of DJs and LIVE acts that had received international acclaim in one place. It was clear to everyone involved that those early years were the beginning of something very special…

This is Episode 2: Dance Music Arrives // Ultra Music Festival 2003

Zedd, 21 Savage and More Revealed on Life In Color Miami’s 2018 Lineup | #iRockParties

Last year’s 10-year anniversary was a doozy, but 2018’s Life in Color flagship festival in Miami is quite prepared to be the biggest and brightest celebration of sight and sound LiC fans have ever witnessed.

The “world’s largest paint party” returns to Mana Wynwood in the heart of the city’s Arts District, a venue surrounded by world-class murals from an array of international artists, and speaking of artists, the lineup is well stacked with popular names from the dance and hip-hop worlds.

ZEDD will bring his dance-pop brilliance to the headlining stage, joined by Atlanta rapper 21 Savage and “vomitstep” bass hero Snails. Blackbear will bring his sad-boy R&B to Miami, while K?D will excite with mystery. Miami’s own Lil Pump rounds out the lineup, along with Parker and Quix.

Beyond the music will be live murals and DIY paint stations where attendees can make their own works of art on the walls or on their friends. Colored smoke will bring new dimension to the venue as it wafts around from stages throughout the grounds. Of course, there will be shots of paint through the air. It’s Life in Color, after all.

Life in Color returns to Mana Wynwood in Miami Sunday, Jan. 14. Tickets are on sale now. Check the full lineup below.
