Sleepless in Scottsdale

By the time the sun peeks over the horizon at approximately 7:33 a.m. on Thursday, January 1, most P-Town revelers will have already gone to bed. But not the hardcore dance freaks at Myst. No, these 24-hour party people will be rocking around the clock at Mystified Sunrise, an after-hours affair that starts at 4 a.m., a mere two hours after the previous evening’s New Year’s Eve festivities have finished up. A four-man tag team of Sean Essex, DJ40Ford, DJ Soloman, and DJ Matty will be manning the Technics decks and pumping out a mix of house, techno, and other dance jams until 10 a.m.
