Monday’s Artist Spotlight: Candyland

Ya’ll ready for this?

(Queue Jock Jams CD)

Each day this week we will be featuring an EDM musician who happens to be playing at Chicago’s own Spring Awakening Music Festival. The purpose of these next two weeks is to introduce and possibly convince viewers to witness these “must see” sets at SAMF. Chances are, we have already seen many of the artists playing at this years’ festival. However, we feel as if we possess the experience necessary to help you plan your own unique rage-fest.

Tell your friends.

Today, we offer you two artists who we actually just saw a few weeks back, so they’re hot on our radar at the moment. Candyland, a production tandem consisting of Ethan Davis and Josie Martin, just came to Chicago with another Rager Onions favorite, Kill Paris (who is also playing at SAMF), and absolutely killed their surprisingly eclectic set. Essentially, these two are the ultimate festival act.


Well, to state the obvious, what could be better than a group that crafts signature “OG” remixes (basically, festival trap) to some of the most popular, but varied songs from throughout your lifetime? Not only does Candyland play to the crowd in that respect, but the duo may shock you with tracks you’d never expect. Just check out their remix to “Hide and Seek” by Imogen Heap below. Not only does Candyland play to the crowd in that respect, but the duo may shock you with tracks you’d never expect.

When it comes down to it, this manic duo knows what aspect of their job title reigns supreme: live performance. All too often these days we are left wanting after witnessing our favorite producer(s) absolutely blow on stage. Candyland will never disappoint.

Heed our advice and find a way to squeeze these two into your personal schedule for the greatest event on earth (well, maybe just Chicago), Spring Awakening Music Festival 2014.

See you there.

Dec3mber – MUST DIE! Minimix [FREE]

Congratulations to 19 year old Harvey Thompson aka Dec3mber who has won Never Say Die Record’s MUST DIE! Minimix Competition. This young UK-based producer beat out the competition when compiling his five minute mix crammed full of MUST DIE! bangers. Utilizing the massive breaks from tracks like “Clanker’s Cavern”, “Release Me” and “I’m Alive”, Dec3mber put together just the right formula to gain the attention of the big wigs over at NSDR.
