You all know Garfield right? The indolent feline created by Jim Davis who happened to HATE Mondays and LOVE lasagna.
Oh right, ya’ll can’t immediately respond to my inquires can you?
Jesus, this needs to stop. I get you and the voices in my head confused all the time, always telling me to “kill whitey.”
I digress, back to the matter at hand. I bet you didn’t know which day of the week Garfield hated second most?
Bingo. You got it, January…I mean Tuesday.
See, it all comes full-circle eventually. You just have to give me some time.
We’ve taken it upon ourselves to craft a Tuesday evening playlist that is perfectly apt for that hellish car ride home in traffic. It’s a beautiful day in Chicago tonight. Enjoy it with the windows down and breeze blowing through your hair as you cruise down LSD blasting these tunes.
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.
Why do you continue to release hard-hitting, monumental remixes while hiding from the spotlight? We’ve jumped on your bandwagon and have been traveling for months now. But we’re tired of searching, and our final destination seems unattainable. Show yourself, or we will be forced to jump off the wagon and back into reality.
Their sound takes a life of it’s own – hard-hitting, aggressive electro music organically formatted to fit this screen. Early on, Knife Party’s signature sound lived in a world of it’s own; until LAZER LAZER LAZER decided to attack with all their might and force them out of the country (so to speak).
And lucky for us, the result was nothing short of magnificent. Their latest remix of Elliphant’s “Revolusion” lives up to the LAZER (x3) name, which at this point has become somewhat of a rarity in the electronic dance music scene.
The day LAZER LAZER LAZER takes to the live stage, make sure you’re front row to take in the rapture. Because once the mainstream takes hold of their music, there’s no turning back.
