PatrickReza With A Lights Out Knockout

PatrickReza With A Lights Out Knockout
Chad Hirsch

I’m just out here trying to cure your case of the Mondays. PatrickReza has been on my radar for some time now and won’t be falling off any time soon. His latest track partners up with Abhi The Nomad, a sick vocalist/musician from Paris. Strong hip hop influences are sprinkled in over the future bass vibes. “Lights Out” was created using 3dio 360 degree binaural microphones which adds a whole new twist to the sound design of this track. Listen closely and check out what I mean. There’s certain nuances about this track that you can’t find anywhere else. PatrickReza, to me, has always seemed to be on the experimental forefront of electronic music.

Lights All Night Announces Lineup And Expansion To El Paso
Alejandro Vega

The annual Dallas New Year’s festival Lights All Night has announced 6 of their headliners. Among those are Above & Beyond, A$ AP Ferg, Deadmau5, Nero, RL Grime and Zedd. They have also expanded out to El Paso (because #ElPasoKnowsHowToParty) for New Year’s Eve and will have Deadmau5 and RL Grime as their headliners. LAN will announce the rest of both lineups later this year but have already done a stellar job with these acts on the bill.

“We are excited to host some of the hottest electronic acts in music, in two locations over NYE weekend. Expanding the brand to El Paso has been a goal for us-it’s a huge hub of music, culture and arts, we’ve had our eye on it for a while now. Our mission is to provide a spectacular New Year’s Eve experience for the patrons. We are excited to give our west Texas and central America fans their own piece of Lights All Night to experience. We anticipate this being the first of other new markets for Lights All Night in 2017 and beyond,” says organizers Scott Osburn and Hank Keller of Dallas-based Highland Concerts.

From state of the art production surrounding the biggest names in electronic music today to specialty food trucks for a unique dining experience as well as signature experiential elements, fans can expect all points of attending LAN in Dallas and El Paso to be top-notch.

Tickets for the Dallas event are available now and tickets for El Paso will go on sale on June 10th. This has always been a fun festival to go to so get your tickets at the best price before they go up!

Jai Wolf Lights Up The Summer Sixteen Sky With Perfect New Single

Jai Wolf Lights Up The Summer Sixteen Sky With Perfect New Single
Jeaux Bay

After releasing one of the best singles of 2015, Jai Wolf returns to do it once again. The question is whether he succeeded? We think he went Yung Barry Bonds on the record and lit up the summer sky with his magical synths and powerful melodies. The collaborative effort from KAM of Chain Gang of 1974 has to be mentioned here because that vocal melody and those lyrics are absolutely unreal. We will look back on this record in 5 years and say, “summer sixteen was better because Jai Wolf existed.”

This is a public thank you to Jai Wolf for continuing to push the sonic barries of electronic music. If you are a rising producer looking to make a name for yourself in this fast paced industry, take notes on what Jai Wolf is doing. Him and his team are dedicated to evolving the scene we all love and there really isn’t a more important service to provide. Grab the single below and make sure you share it around. Mark my words, top 10 electronic singles of summer sixteen.

Bassnectar and Pretty Lights Light Up Hampton

Bassnectar and Pretty Lights Light Up Hampton
Alex Prevey

With a capacity to hold almost 10,000 people, the Hampton Coliseum of Hampton, Virginia has certainly earned its nickname as the revered “Mothership”. The circular dome stands as main venue to house the illustrious Basslights, a two night event curated by Pretty Lights and Bassnectar wherein the two play back to back sets both days, switching into the closing set position each night. The two are known to put on quite a show, with Bassnectar’s on-the-fly sampling/visual mixing and Pretty Light’s analog sythensizer sound and immersive stage lighting courtesy of long-time collaborator, Lazer Shark, the expectation from their die-hard fans is staggering. The night sported two openers, each catered to that night’s headlining artist, with Marvel Years and Manic Focus opening for the Pretty Lights headlining night and Son of Kick and Break Science opening for Bassnectars second night closing set.

This year’s immense stage depicted the perfect balance between the two artists, with large stage area and screen for Bassnectar to project his visuals onto, and crowned in multiple rows of piercing lazers the stage took on an incredible form. During the first Bassnectar set on night one, he opened with the Imperial March from Star Wars, taking in full advantage of those visuals by depicting the rise of Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer looming over the crowd. This perfectly synced up with the recent movie release, sending the crowd into hysterics before bombarding the crowd with fan-favorites such as Boombox, Ping Pong, and recent release, Generate. He also released a mashup of You and Me and Can’t Feel My Face from The Weeknd, taking a totally new direction with the hit single. This powerpacked setlist set a high-octane tone prior to the Pretty Lights headlining set, with everyone preparing to settle down and weather the color storm of lights spewing from the stage.

It came as a surprise, however, when Pretty Lights announced his use of a full-analog synthesizer box for the show, meaning the curating of the entire set-list done by hand. His performance of Understand Me Now took the crowd out of this world, delving into an array of purples and greens, really setting an intense note for the show. He included other favorites such as the Gold Coast Hustle/Get Em High Remix, Exodus, and a perfectly timed I Can See It In Your Face to close out the night.The inclusion of pillars surrounding the top and sides of the stage were an incredible addition, bringing the stage to another level of intricacy, drawing inspiration from Pretty Light’s Red Rocks stage show premiered earlier this year. During both sets these pillars displayed projection mapping and LED interfaces consistently flowing with the music. This added a cohesive visual element to both sets on both nights. With ringing ears and a bit of shell-shock, the crowd left the Mothership the first day, hungry for more.

The tension was palpable as the hordes of fans flooded back on night two, eager as ever. Crowd calls and cheers came up from the line, even though the Virginia Air was colder than in years past. The hotels had been ringing with conversation and anticipation for the second night, especially with Bassnectar closing out festivities. In stride with years past, the second night has always come with a little something extra as both artists push the final stretch of the two day run. With Pretty Light’s opening for Bassnectar on night two, fans were eager to see how he would set the tone and they were not disappointed as the horns rang out from Forever Lost, cruising into his remix of Run-DMC’s It’s Tricky. During this set Pretty Lights peppered in analog synth mixing and free-styling elements giving the show a theme the likes of a Mad Scientist delving into his work. His set ended to incredible applause after playing multiple new tracks including his collaboration with Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine entitled, Can’t Knock The Hustle, which features lyrics from Jay-Z. During the final song, the entire building took out their lights and illuminated the crowd for Pretty Light’s track, “Where Are My Friends” casting a warm glow over the scene.

Pretty Light’s buildup was the perfect platform for Bassnectar to take off from and close the second night, which he naturally did in style. Taking off from the down-tempo closing set just played, he began with crystaline synths from Before We Dissolve, building steam during Empathy, and began the climb into a wild break during Noise wherein the crowd became the customary insanity it prides itself on. Continuing on through a very heavy set filled with gems such as the DJ Kool classic, Let Me Clear My Throat and the ever illusive Frog Song with lyrics overlaid during the second drop, the Mothership was at an all-time frenzy topping the weekend off in every way imaginable. Fans of both artists were seen hanging over the railings surrounding the pit, taking in as much of the king of the sound as they could get. The only thought that wrung in everyone’s minds upon his closing out the weekend with a heavy drop into What was how long we will have to wait until this magical event comes around again.

Next stop for the two artists, New Years.

Hulaween 2015 Ft. Chance The Rapper, Pretty Lights, Griz, ODESZA & More!
Joe Bay

With only two weeks away The String Cheese Incident returning for the 3rd Annual Hulaween at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. The String Cheese Incident will be headlining 7 sets over the weekend and will be joined by Griz, Slightly Stoopid, Primus, STS9, Pretty Lights and many more.

This year there are several incredible lineups across the nation for the Halloween weekend but this lineup holds its own. A mixture of electronic and live music in an environment that is perfect for consuming it. Personally Odesza, Lettuce, Chance the Rapper and North Florida’s own Greenhouse Lounge will be must see acts.

HulaweenFL15_Full_V6-662x1024

Not to sound cliché or pull out of a Harry Potter book but if you’ve ever been to Suwannee you know
that the forest is a magical place, the people are extremely friendly, and the music is always on point. The pre-party starts Thursday with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and Eoto’s drum and bass. If you haven’t already, grab your tickets and pack your tent for another musical adventure.
