DUCKY unleashes a new bootleg of Jai Wolf’s take on Kiiara’s ‘Feels’ [Free Download]

This post was originally published on this site

DUCKY has steadily released a string of singles that are causing ripples across the electronic music scene. The force behind her hypnotic warehouse-style productions is a sonic blend of melodic dubstep, future bass, and happy hardcore; and how she infuses each track with a unique energy from her deep love of rave culture.

The San Francisco-bred, Los Angeles-based producer has now made a statement as she takes a swing at Jai Wolf‘s remix of “Feels” by Kiiara. While doing well to hold onto Jai Wolf’s use of raw emotionality and melodic vocal chops, DUCKY speeds up the tempo of the track all the way up to the song’s first dub-inspired drop — here is where DUCKY’s production skills shine with heavy electric guitar synths and stabbing breaks. The short bootleg is the perfect addition to anyone’s pre-party playlist.

The track is also available for free download.

Kasbo delights on rework of Jai Wolf’s ‘Indian Summer,’ apart of the ‘Kindred Spirits Remixes’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

In 2015, then 23-year-old Jai Wolf – real name Sajeeb Saha – unleashed his immensely genre-challenging tune “Indian Summer.”

While Wolf’s original stands well on its own, if there was anyone put their spin on the track, few would do it the justice better than Swedish producer Kasbo. As such, Kasbo has done just that. He’s reimagined the euphoric number in the most elated tone imaginable. Kasbo ascends to the sonic heavens on his “Indian summer” rework, where he imbues its guitar chords and drums with pearlescent future-leaning nuance.

“Was an honor to remix Jai Wolf’s iconic song “Indian Summer.” Was challenging to make it my own cause I felt that the song was very much what it was supposed to be already. Ended up doing a few remixes, all of which were very similar to the original, but finally, I decided that I had to do something completely different, which became the final product…,” he said of the track.

Certainly, Kasbo inoculated the number with his own style, but his reworking’s impressiveness lies in the newfound variation’s ability to resist imposing on the track’s integrated integrity.

Kasbo quickly ascended in the indietronica ranks after touring alongside ODESZA in 2015. Since then he’s been riding on the coattails of his feel-good 2017 track “Found You, ” as well his more recent release via ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective. If its elegance serves as any indication, we can expect 2018 to be a prosperous year for the ever-rising producer.

Kasbo’s remix joins the work of Hotel Garuda, Robotaki, and others in the eight-track Kindred Spirits Remixes EP, which serves up new renditions of Jai Wolf’s album released in 2016.

Kidswaste will also be touring with the duo Hotel Garuda, New York-based producer Jai Wolf, and Canadian act, Chet Porter. Coming together from different backgrounds, the artists who will be performing on the Tonight tour each bring forth their own indie electronic vibe which makes the lineup rich and diverse. The Tonight tour is especially significant because it marks Kidswaste’s first appearance in the United States.

“I’ve never been to the US or even traveled that far by myself so that’s something that excites me a lot. It’s a whole new experience for me and I don’t know what to expect, and stress, relief, happiness and anxiety all comes together. I am really excited for this tour though, I and hope everyone will enjoy it.”

-Kidswaste

As a largely up-and-coming act, Kidswaste’s US Tonight tour will showcase both his production talent and performance skill to a large and diverse audience, generating live exposure to a demographic where the majority of his fans are located. His debut US set will take place on November 1 in Northampton, Massachusetts hitting major cities along the way such as Chicago, Brooklyn, and DC. Kidswaste’s tour is centered around his forthcoming single titled, “Tonight” featuring Jai Wolf and Chelsea Cutler. The single is currently available on Spotify pre-save and will be officially released on November 6.

Jai Wolf releases a four-track remix package for “Starlight” featuring Mr. Gabriel via Mom+Pop. The New York City based producer enlists Lenno and Goldroom for two refreshing takes on the scintillating single, released this April. While Finnish artist Lenno’s rework is upbeat with playful “Hey!”‘s sprinkled throughout, LA producer Goldroom’s version slows down the original and isolates the lyrics with downtempo percussion loops.

Sajeeb Saha, the man behind Jai Wolf, includes an acoustic version of the track sung by Mr. Gabriel and a piano version from Daniel Park in the remix package. These instrumental versions of “Starlight” allow listeners a rare view into the barebones blueprint for the track.

Thu. Aug. 3 – Chicago, IL @ Logan Square Auditorium
Fri. Aug. 4 – Chicago, IL @ Toyota Music Den at Lollapalooza
Sat. Aug. 5 – Chicago, IL @ Lollapalooza

Vertex Festival 2017 has been cancelled

This post was originally published on this site

Event producer Madison House introduced Vertex, a four-day camping festival, last year to its home state of Colorado. Designed to be a more relaxed, inclusive take on Madison House’s widely popular Electric Forest festival, Vertex’s debut featured a slew of big-name electronic acts, including Odesza, Duke Dumont, Jai Wolf, and RÜFÜS DU SOL, and was co-produced by AEG Live, the event organizer behind festivals like Coachella and Panorama.

Unfortunately, Madison House has decided not to move forward with Vertex’s 2017 event. According to the Denver Post, mounting frustrations between festival organizers, the commissioners of Buena Vista’s Chafee County, and residents of the county caused huge hurdles for the festival. During a series of hearings, dozens of individuals came forward and complained about their homes being disturbed by the festival’s bass, strangers wandering in their neighborhoods, and the total of four drug arrests which transpired last year. On the other hand, residents in favor of the project cited the massive boost in consumer spending which resulted from last year’s event.

While discussions have been productive according to a statement, the ongoing public meetings have pushed Madison House far beyond their planning deadlines.

The statement reads: “The recent approval of the permit for Vertex in 2017 is much appreciated, and displays the collective intentions to discover a great path forward. Buena Vista’s relationship with a world-class festival has amazing potential. Rushing forward could compromise the quality of the festival and is not in the best interest of Buena Vista or Vertex. We look forward to ongoing productive discussions with the community so that we can best plan the dream of what Vertex can become.”

Although Madison House ultimately received the required permit for Vertex 2017, the approval came with serious stipulations, including noise constraints and an earlier curfew. Commissioners also rejected Madison House’s request for a three-year permit, which festival director Michael Sampliner explained is essential for substantial and necessary investment into the event.

There is some good news for fans of Vertex. Although 2017 is a no-go for the festival, the door is still open for a 2018 revival. Madison House plans to re-apply for a three-year permit again next year.
