Rob Gronkowski to host  Miami rager with Diplo, Kaskade, and more in lieu of 2020 Super BowlGronk

Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski is leaving his former NFL and Tide Pod glory behind. In its place, he’s taking up arms with some of the most resounding names in the dance music dominion Saturday, February 1.

The former Patriots tight end and prospective future hall of famer’s Super Bowl weekender this coming February won’t be in his usual fashion—by any means. He’s taken on a monster of a sponsor (Monster Energy) to host the one-day beachside merriment, which he’s tagged GRONK BEACH. The festival is bolstered by an artist roundup that seems straight from a pre-game playlist.

As nonsensical as the idea may seem, lineups don’t lie; and this one boasts Diplo, Kaskade, and more outlandish characters like Carnage and locationally appropriate Flo Rida. The assuredly over-the-top production will land at North Beach Bandshell, running approximately 1-7 pm. Tickets go on sale Thursday, here.

The branding is another piece of evidence in the case for electronic music’s pervasive push into omnipresent pop culture in recent years. So much so, that Gronk’s decided to “call an audible” and hang up his cleats for a piece of the off-the-wall dance music dessert.

So move over, Shaq. There’s another sports legend making a run for the festival frontlines.

Drake-and-Future“From doing records from sampling, I started learning the science about what happened to soul music,” the Alchemist told me 13 years ago.

Premiere: Montana Tucker stars in Thomas Gold’s music video for hit track ‘Begin Again’

Instagram celebrity and singer Montana Tucker has opened for the likes of Pitbull, Flo Rida, and Lil Wayne, but her next booking takes a different turn as the star of Thomas Gold‘s music video for hit track “Begin Again.” Tucker dances the viewer through the video, first on a neighborhood street, and next in a pink wonderland of a bedroom. She also lip syncs the male vocals, giving the video an interesting twist.

Gold makes a cameo a minute in, handing off car keys to Tucker who dances the video away from there. Gold spoke with DA about “Begin Again,” as well as working with Tucker for the video.

“‘Begin Again’ marks kind of a milestone for me. I went back from the downtempo stuff (like ‘Magic’ and ‘Dreamer’) to a more uptempo vibe, but the production still has a crossover approach. To me, this kind of defines the 2018 summer sound, and I am super excited about the video we did – it features Montana Tucker all throughout, in different scenes and places. I met her when we shot the video, and apart from her super cool acting,  it was a lot of fun to work with her!”

Gold released the track on Armada Music, and it showcases his diverse production abilities as he goes in a different direction with his sound. Gold is kicking off his summer with an Asia tour, and will certainly be dropping the catchy track throughout.
