Do LaB festival producers present a stacked lineup for this year’s Lightning in a Bottle music festival, featuring Disclosure, Santigold, Gramatik, Toro y Moi, Big Gigantic, Elohim, and Flying Lotus‘ 3D concert experience. Artists taking over the beloved Woogie stage include Lane 8, DJ Koze, Damian LazarusLutrell, Shiba San, Recondite live, and more. Bass heads will reunite at the low end-heavy thunder stage with sub-booming performances from G Jones, 1788-LCloZee, EPROM and Alix Perez’s SHADES project, the funk bass stylings of OPIUO, and more.

For the past five years, the festival took place at San Antonio Reservoir Recreation Area in Bradley, California; and the last two years were met tragically with the death of a festival attendee at each. Now, the festival has moved to a new venue at Buena Vista Lake in Central California, with lush, green pastures, a shaded tree line, and accessible shoreline that’s sure to bring festival-goers in full force.

Tickets are currently on sale for Lightning in a Bottle 2019. Purchase them here.

Elohim breeds intimacy through the disconnect with new single ‘TV’

Elohim breeds intimacy through the disconnect with new single ‘TV’IMG 0139

Elohim recently delivered a new single titled “TV,” exhibiting once again the sincerity and depth of her unbridled ability to express. One might expect a track that starts off with the phrasing, “I’m depressed as fuck,” would have difficulty steadying listeners, but the composition and sweetly somber vocals etch themselves across the consciousness.

The electro-pop track is well-fleshed out and has an abundance of layers and transitions. Like changing channels, she evokes mental images of a glitchy heaven. Elohim harmonizes with a chorus in one round of the hook and sings, “I keep the TV on to tune out the sound/my mind’s way too loud/my mind is way too loud.” This message creates a feeling of interconnectedness through individual anxiety, and for the moment, reconciles it.

“TV” is the first track from an upcoming project that Elohim has been quite vocal about on social media. She has gone far to be direct in her message and even posted a well-written explanation of her lyrical use of “spaghetti legs” from the track on Instagram.

Elohim shares her strength through her songwriting and in doing so enables her fans to cope in a hyperactive often disjointed society. She creates a space where admitting to these sometimes senseless habits is okay and connects people. Elohim paradoxically and fluidly uses the great unifier—music—to connect people through their disconnect. Truly an inspiriting concept delicately wrapped for a troubled yet idealistic generation.

Elohim and Skrillex share cerebral video for ‘Buckets’ [Watch]Elohim

Skrillex knows a star when he sees one, and his recent backing of emerging Danish vocalist Elohim should be a telling signal. We’re watching a breakout moment unfold for the young OWSLA recruit, behind the recent success of two Skrillex co-signs, “Connect,” and the ensuing “Buckets.” The latter is a buzzing anthem of unrest, and now we have an equally angsty video to round out the pair’s collaboration.

The new Jonas Risvig-directed video for “Buckets,” takes a deep dive into Denmark’s teen spirit, delving into the anxiousness of European youth culture, evoking distant visual remnants of Skrillex’s Lost Boys narrative from 2011’s “Bangarang” video. Elohim’s shrill vocals ride a gritty trap-influenced foundation as the track’s aesthetically dark video feature perfectly complements the Skrillex-produced beat. See the video for “Buckets” below, and keep an eye on Elohim, 2019 is primed to be her year.

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018

Dancing Astronaut’s Top Tracks of 2018Skrille 1

Paring down an entire year’s worth of songs is no easy feat.

2018 saw the explosion of songs like ZEDD‘s “The Middle” and Calvin Harris and Dua Lipa‘s “One Kiss,” dominating both the dance music charts and the radio airwaves. Ear-catching tracks like these, along with fan favorites like FISHER‘s persuasive “Losing It” and Anti Up‘s entertaining “Pizza” wiggled their way into festival sets around the world and — love them or hate them — stood out as notable tracks that do their part in immortalizing this whirlwind of a year.

We also saw a creative collective of remixes surface in 2018, including Rinzen‘s compelling take on deadmau5 and Rob Swire‘s hit “Monophobia” and Skrillex‘s intoxicating rendition of Travis Scott‘s “Sicko Mode.” We celebrated the return of Gesaffelstein with “Reset” and welcomed new projects from Diplo in LSD and Silk City. We welcomed collaborations from Ekali, Medasin, and Elohim in “Forever,” Tiësto, Dzeko, Post Malone, and Preme in platinum smash hit “Jackie Chan,” and ZHU and Tame Impala in “My Life.”

Ultimately, though, we’ve narrowed 2018 down to 30 tracks that stole our hearts and smashed streaming records.

Elohim taps Skrillex for their second collaboration, ‘Buckets’Elohim

Though many were expecting a Skrillex album at some point in 2018, the missing follow up to Recess doesn’t mean Skrillex has had a quiet year. From his collaborations with Joyryde and Mariah Carey, to his remix of “Sicko Mode,” the emo-frontman turned superstar DJ has been busy working behind the scenes with other artists. After signing Elohim to OWSLA and co-producing her single, “Connect,” the pair have teamed up again on their hard-hitting new track, “Buckets.”

With a simple yet eerie flute melody, Elohim kicks the song off with her sultry vocals – only to switch things up with anguished cries atop a booming, distorted low-end. Showing a full range of vocal styles and track energy, the emerging artist and the powerhouse producer  have come together for another dynamic track sure to please Elohim’s fans, and hold over Skrillex’s until the album finally emerges.

Elohim makes her OWSLA debut, dropping a new track co-produced by Skrillex, “Connect,” with an accompanying music video. Combining Elohim’s emotive vocals with Skrillex’s signature vocal chop melodies and sharp drum production, “Connect” creates an uplifting atmosphere, lined by shimmering notes and warm harmonies. The LA-based singer/songwriter’s voice has an authentic feel and defined crispness that contrasts nicely with the OWSLA label head’s purposeful production style and vocoded accents. The music video is a perfect aesthetic fit to Elohim’s newest feel-good bop too.

Since releasing her self-titled debut album this year, Elohim has made major strides in 2018, building her catalog with collaborations alongside some of the most in-demand artists of the moment. She was featured on Louis The Child‘s Kids At Play EP; dipped into alternative rock with a feature on AWOLNATION‘s new single, “Table For One;” and REZZ remixed her and the Glitch Mob‘s “I Could Be Anything” from the group’s See Without Eyes Deluxe album. With her breakout year culminating in a new Skrillex co-sign, OWSLA could prove to be a fitting home for the emerging vocalist in 2019.

Louis the Child release an extensive nine-track EP, Kids At Play, inviting listeners to their sonic playground filled with sultry harmonies, soulful wonderment, unique sounds, and youthful fervor. Colorful sounds ooze out of , from the tropical steel drums on “Better Not” featuring Wafia to the blue guitar twangs on “Save Me From Myself” with NoMBe and Big Gigantic. These two kids from Chicago showcase their electronic dance-pop crossover skills on what could have easily been a full-length.

Genre bending and intelligent synth design becomes apparent through each of the EP’s distinctive tracks. “Interstellar” features a dynamic and glitchy arrangement that feels fitting of its futuristic name. “Braking News,” featuring RAYE, implies a playful relationship between the collaborators with rolling synths and hi hats that create a bounce in their step.

The Wafia-assisted “Better Not” featuring Wafia was the first track released off the project, amassing to a total of 72.5 million plays on Spotify, the duo’s most listened to track on the platform to date.  “Ohhh Baby” is quite the percussive piece, illustrating an organized chaos similar to an uplifting G Jones. “LOVE” featuring Elohim is the second collaboration between the two, the first being “Love is Alive.” The chorus features the West LA Children’s Choir, adding to the album’s childish delight.

“Dear Sense” features the soulful vocals of MAX and offers an LCD Soundsystem feel. “The City” featuring Quinn XCII offers bouncing melodies and punching percussions underneath a fervent voice. “Save Me From Myself” features EDM’s sax man, Big Gigantic, and the R&B clad, NoMBE. The acoustic guitar creates a campfire feel that drops into big, emotive synths, spaced out for effect. “Space Jam” contains a classic Louis The Child synth feel, sounding similar to an old-school 90s video game with frolicsome percussive elements. Listen to Kids At Play by Louis The Child below.
