Ookay Casually Announces That He Is Working On A New Album

This post was originally published on this site

Ookay made 2016 his break out year with the help of his transcending single, ‘Thief’. The track was original and a departure from the sound that many came to associate with the world renowned artist. Heavy with saxophone instrumentation and easily the catchiest hook of the year, ‘Thief’ became a landmark track. Today Ookay tweeted

Crystalize – Stay Woke (Original Mix)

This post was originally published on this site

Ever since his first piece of work hit SoundCloud in 2014, dynamic producer Crystalize has consistently cranked out an enticing medley of original tracks and remixes. Favoring Porter Robinson remixes in his early production days, Crystalize released beautiful renditions of “Sad Machine,” “Fellow Feeling” and “Divinity,” gaining him attention among Porter fans and beyond. Since then, he’s remixed Skrillex, Jauz, Ookay, graves and many more.

Now the producer seems to be focusing on originals and his latest demonstrates a true step up his production game. The dramatic trap track seemingly has two sides: a beautiful, alluring melody theme that draws the listener in, and the trap-infused, festival-ready drop. This is one aspect of Crystalize’s music that has been consistent throughout his productions: a focus on an overall melody with intervals of different music styles (trap, in this case) that he seems to effortlessly blend together. Though the melody in “Stay Woke” is subtle, it flows gracefully throughout the entire track all the way to the minimalist fade-out at the end.

There’s never a dull moment in a Crystalize track. See for yourself.

Life In Color Surpasses Expectations for 10th Anniversary [Event Review]

This post was originally published on this site

By now, it would be expected that the novelty of getting blasted with streaks of pink, blue, and green would be a tad bit irritating. After all, paint parties have been around before Life In Color came to be.

What started as over-the-top college parties at Florida State University over a decade ago evolved into one of Miami’s most unique series of concerts in the last five years. From massive expansions across South Florida, touring across the country, and even a Guinness World Record for “most people covered in paint at one time,” the people behind Life In Color reimagined their paint parties into a festival experience that combines massive themes with enormous musical performances. And this year was no different.

Much like Ultra Music Festival, Life In Color’s flagship is in Miami, where prior installments packed enormous crowds by the Hard Rock Stadium. This year, however, the music festival made a venue change, trading the expansive parking lot of the Miami Dolphins’ football arena for the intimate combination of Mana Wynwood and the abandoned RC Cola Plant. At first, I came to believe that this is a continuance of the downsizing of Life In Color’s concerting production as Wynwood is a tight neighborhood. After Life In Color 2014 spread its stay for a full weekend of musical messes, LIC 2016 returned to a single-day music festival criteria while still bringing a fierce lineup of commercial house, trap, dubstep, and hip-hop.

To my surprise, the switch made Life In Color feel larger than ever as it sat between large murals of street art and chic restaurants.

Coming into the venue, the main “Sector X” stage featured opening acts Nitti Gritti and Bonnie X Clyde whose musical careers kickstarted from Wynwood Fear Factory and Life In Color 2016 respectively. Between new music, both acts have unreleased and tenacious bangers shaping 2017, their acts set the tone for the incoming performances on the main stage and for the nearby “Rare Stage” which took the form of a circus tent. It was over here that equally bass-heavy performances from Fresko, Doctor P, and Ookay transitioned from the dusk and into the evening. I stayed here for quite some time before returning to Sector X.

In between both stages where a vast array of food trucks and stands offering funnel cakes, gyros, salads, and more. Yet, most of these places began to run out of food faster than they could make new food for future customers. I found that around the time that Marshmello and Desiigner were set to perform (between 9p.m. – 11p.m.), the lines were too long to properly serve anyone and the food being served was underwhelming in comparison to their relatively high prices. This problem struck the hardest for the main food stands that supposedly offered hot dogs, gyros, and Philly cheese steaks because all of these options disappeared by the time Mija was finished with her performance. This came as such a shock to me as previous installments were able have had less food truck options while still having less issues with serving the fan base.

As the evening began to gear up for the headliners, it became abundantly clear that Young Thug was nowhere to be found on the lineup when he was apart of the promotional lineup for the event. However, after seeing his recent antics in not showing up for his own music video shoot, I think this was a little outside of the hands of Life In Color. Meanwhile, every other headliner delivered terrific sets from the melodic dubstep powerhouses such as Seven Lions and Illenium to the electro house bangers coming from the sets of Mija and Tritonal. The night was topped off with performances from Diplo and Carnage who dropped trap, dubstep, and moombahton tracks to send off the 10th Anniversary of Life In Color with flying colors.

Even though there were hiccups with the food provided for guests and one headliner was unable to make an appearance, Life In Color blew my expectations. I went in believing that the transition to Wynwood (which usually hosts underground concerts) would be particularly arduous as it was about to host a relatively commercial music festival. But seeing the success of Wynwood Fear Factory last Halloween and LIC’s using the size of two venues to host the whole event, Life In Color established another successful show filled with head-banging EDM and the most tolerant body paint to be splashed on the faces of its fans.

Life in Color announces lineup for 10 year Miami anniversary festival

This post was originally published on this site

In 2007, Sebastian Solano, Lukas Tracz, Patryk Tracz, and Paul Campbell debuted the first-ever Life in Color, known at the time as Dayglow, a humble paint party that tapped into South Florida’s bustling electronic dance music scene. From the outset, the festival’s founders had a vision of creating large-scale, paint-centered EDM events, and ten years later this vision has certainly become a reality. In 2016, the show’s flagship Miami festival hosted 25,000 paint-laden attendees.

More than just becoming “The World’s Largest Paint Party” and a must-attend event for college students, Life in Color’s acquisition by SFX Entertainment has allowed the festival to expand its influence globally, reaching 70 cities in 18 countries in 2016. Some of the most admired names in the industry including the likes of Jack Ü, Kaskade, Alesso, Dillon Francis, Calvin Harris, and Hardwell, just to name a few, have performed at the event in years past.

Celebrating 10 years, Life in Color has released a video announcing its 2017 Miami festival lineup. The event’s decade-old South Florida celebration is stacked with EDM’s biggest bass-inclined artists, such as Diplo, Marshmello, and Carnage, among others. Moreover, this year’s show will feature multiple stages. Diplo, Marshmello, Seven Lions, Illenium, Mija, Solano, and Bonnie & Clyde will take to the Sector X stage, while Young Thug, Carnage, Tritonal, Desiigner, Ookay, Doctor P, and Fresko will take to the Bare Stage.

Miami’s Life in Color 10-year anniversary event will take place on January 28 at Mana Wynwood & RC Colo Plant in Miami’s Wynwood art district. Tickets are available to purchase here.
