HARD Summer delivers mind-bending 2018 lineup loaded with special back-to-back performances

This post was originally published on this site

HARD Summer is pulling out all the stops for the upcoming edition of the festival, led by one of the event’s most memorable lineups to date. Slated for August 4 – 5, and returning to a familiar venue at Fontana’s Auto Club Speedway, HARD’s flagship event is sticking to their tried and true playbook of marquee dance and hip-hop match ups, laced together by the underground’s finest newcomer talents, dropping off a lineup of over 70 acts. Best of all, 2018 now is officially the year of the back-to-back.

Marshmello, Travis Scott, Louis The Child and Porter Robinson‘s Virtual Self project are all tapped for headlining duties, along with , Louis Vuitton’s newly-signed artistic director and moonlighting DJ Virgil Abloh, and Flosstradamus. In between massive headliners and top-card highlights that include Rick Ross, Slushii, Ekali, San Holo and more, the talent roster is littered with never-before-seen back-to-back performances that could honestly form their own insane lineup.

Diplo and Dillon Francis will share the stage for the first time, and Jauz will join Zeds Dead for a co-headlining slot, Snails and Kill The Noise are apparently allowed to perform together, despite how dangerous that sounds. Four Color Zack and DJ Craze are bringing their 2¢ project to HARD Summer as well as Escapade, Ardalan and Walker & Royce‘s Dirtybird mashup. Borgore and Getter are pairing for an unholy union, and Baauer and A-Trak are joining for another one of their rare tag-team bouts. And these are just the back-to-back sets.

Additional firepower from Mija, k?d, Tokimonsta, Madam X, Joyryde and many more round out one of HARD’s best bookings to date. And with the festival boasting added amenities, updated safety and comfort features, plus a hilarious trailer that pins Diplo as the “Dawson’s Creek looking motherf****r” he is, we’re looking at what could be the most over-the-top edition of HARD Summer yet.

A-Trak & Young Thug drop off vintage skate demo-inspired music video for ‘Ride For Me’

This post was originally published on this site

Recently A-Trak and Young Thug linked up for a throwback to the Low Pros days, dropping off their grinding new collaboration, “Ride For Me,” via Zane Lowe on Beats 1. The track was met with equal parts surprise and praise, with Young Thug delivering one of his most aberrantly eccentric vocal performances in recent memory, complemented by rising rapper 24hrs’ tempered contribution, all wrapped up and packed tightly into a slow-burning A-Trak trap beat.

The pair have now released an official video accompaniment that ties together genres, styles, cultures, and even generations. Thugger and A-Trak rope in a heavy dose of 90’s nostalgia, linking with renown skate video director and Zoo York founder Eli Morgan Gesner for “Ride For Me‘s” one-of-a-kind concept.

The video clips together Gesner’s archived footage of legendary NYC skaters from two decades ago with cuts of A-Trak and Thug revisiting the same spots in the present day, filmed with the same Hi-8 camera, making the clips of 1994 and 2018 nearly indistinguishable. The feature’s visual aesthetics, which A-Trak describes perfectly as, “both nostalgic and post-modern,” play right into the track’s sonic appeal, juxtaposing a retro snapshot of life in the urban underground with a soundtrack of futuristic, new wave hip-hop.

A-Trak Releases New R&B Infused Track “Ride For Me”

This post was originally published on this site

A-Trak has truly surprised us with his recently released track, “Ride For Me.” Slightly different from his typical style of music, the DJ-producer has not failed to create an outstanding hip-hop infused track. The new music piece also features artists such as Falcons, Young Thug, and 24hrs. If you are one who enjoys the great

A-Trak and YehMe2 join forces on ‘Skat Men’ EP

Atrak-YehMe2

Josh Young deserves some serious respect for his boldness. The man left an incredibly successful dance music project as a former half of Flosstradamus, with the promise to himself, and his fans, that he was going to broaden his horizons and challenge himself. Well, since the launch YehMe2, the producer has done just that and avoided the leverage his former position at the head of HDYNATION would provide to his new project.

Now, YehMe2 has linked with A-Trak for a handful of exciting moves. The pair are on tour together as 2018 gets underway, and now they’re upping the ante with a two-track mini EP that includes a preview of a third collaboration to soon follow. Instead of gritty hip-hop and trap products though, A-Trak and YehMe2 opt for a more lighthearted approach with their Skat Men EP — comprised of both DJs actually scatting on the tracks.

Both “Neo Wokyo” and “Take Me 2 The Barbershop,” featuring rump-shaking aficionado Wuki, are simply fun, shuffle-primed uptempo cuts that don’t take themselves too seriously. The EP also includes a preview for the duo’s impending “Prayer Hands” as well. Strong club fare — probably not. Proper festival ammo — also unlikely. The two Fools Gold veterans couldn’t seem to care less though, and therein lies the joint project’s appeal. At it’s core, the EP is meant to be goofy and amusing, and it just made scatting a helluva lot cooler.
