This post was originally published on this site

For the eighth year in a row, I strolled into an all too familiar Lollapalooza at Chicago’s own Grant Park. As in years past, I found myself immediately met with groups of festival goers adorned in the staple Tune Squad jersey and all too many crop tops to count. Mutterings of lobster corndogs ran rampant,

Gear up for Lollapalooza with DA’s 12 most anticipated performancesLollapalooza Chhicago 2018

Lollapalooza is this weekend in Chicago, and Dancing Astronaut is hosting a live stream of the music festival.

With headliners such as The Weeknd, Bruno Mars, Jack White, Arctic Monkeys, and Travis Scott, the festival’s 27th year in existence should be one for the ages. After changing to a four-day event in 2016, Lollapalooza is easily one of the top-attended music festivals in the United States.

Below are 12 of the most anticipated Lollapalooza performances from an electronic music perspective.


REZZ

“Space mom” is a must-see for any festival. She’s performing Thursday at 7:15 p.m. CDT, and her new album, Certain Kind Of Magic, comes out Friday on mau5trap. REZZ was just featured on the cover of DJ Mag‘s August issue.

ODESZA

After killer sets at Red Rocks and Panorama, ODESZA looks to bring their massive live-electronic show with their big synths, drum line, and stellar light show. The duo is the headliner of EDM at Lollapalooza, and there are rumors of a potential Foreign Family festival in 2019.

Rusko

After beating cancer, the British dubstep pioneer is back in action. He dropped his Has Made Five More Songs EP, this year, and the flag-bearer of contemporary dubstep knows how to throw down, recently coming off supporting Zeds Dead in London. Dubstep whomps at 6 p.m. CDT Friday? Yes, please.

Billie Eilish

The 16-year-old from California had her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me, rank on Billboard‘s top 200 list. The distraught yet swagged-out teen recently had a tarantula emerge from her mouth for the new single, you should see me in a crown. Imagine what the eclectic and eccentric young trendsetter will bring to the stage.

Dillon Francis

The budding actor, director, and TV writer is also one of the most sought-after festival DJs. With six releases from his upcoming WUT WUT album on Francis’ new IDGAFOS imprint, working with Comedy Central on Living The Dream, his own show Like & Subscribe, and One Deeper Talks with DJ Hanzel; EDM’s funny man has been busy this summer.  Playing Friday at 8:30 p.m. CDT, Francis’ live set will be a perfect way to start the weekend shenanigans.

Tycho

Cool your jets to the easy-going electronic ambiance of Scott Hansen aka Tycho. The musician, composer, producer, songwriter, photographer, and designer is a true embodiment of an artist. With a variety of genre’s at Lollapalooza, Tycho will be a nice escape into the serene 9 p.m. CDT on Thursday.

Post Malone

With one of Billboard‘s top albums for the past two months, beerbongs & bentleys, Malone is a must-see. His happy-go-lucky attitude, infectious smile, and daydreaming vibe will create an ambiance of love, partying, and good harmony.

Illenium

Future bass maven, Nicholas D. Miller, will put on a beautiful set with big synths 7:15 p.m. CDT Saturday. He’s been diving into harder productions, recently teaming up with Excision on their new track, “Gold (Stupid Love)” featuring Shallows. Last month, Illenium released a massive 15-track remix package for his 2017 Awake album.

Chromeo

Having released their fifth studio album, Head Over Heals, this summer, the veteran FUNKLORDZ look towards filling the electro-funk void. After cancelling shows earlier in July due to mental health issues, the duo is back in action and will not disappoint fans of funk, dance & hip-hop.

Tyler, The Creator

He just released a new music video with A$AP Rocky for their single, “Potato Salad.” The Odd Future fashion, lifestyle, and content icon finally received critic recognition on his Flower Boy album last year. His set is sure to be one of a kind.

Galantis

The live electronic duo from Sweden will keep spirits uplifted with melodies and drops a-plenty. According to their Twitter, they’ve also got something special planned for Lollapalooza.

Zedd

Germany and pop music’s EDM headliner and Billboard chart-topper will not disappoint. He’s playing at 8:30 p.m. CDT on Saturday. His newest song is “Happy Now” featuring Elley Duhé.

Honorable mentions: Petit Biscuit, Malaa, Lykke Li, Goldlink, What So Not, Excision, Logic, The Weeknd, Khalid.

Mysterious Rezz-approved artist Deathpact drops new single, launches eerie campaign

Mysterious Rezz-approved artist Deathpact drops new single, launches eerie campaignDeathpact

While the idea of a masked or anonymous producer is not anything new in the world of electronic music, few put as much work into hiding their identity and creating a buzz than the mysterious new artist, Deathpact. Not much is known about the producer, but they have officially let their first single, titled “Danger,” loose as of July 20.

“Danger” is an excitingly dark house tune that would fit right in with Malaa‘s catalog — but the real buzz comes from Deathpact’s seriously creepy website. Upon entering the site, nothing suspicious catches the eye, aside from the fact that it’s just an empty website. However, after some clicking around, a modulated voice begins to list off numbers – the phone number 917-283-2750. More investigation lead DA down a rabbit hole of creepy voicemails and a chain of indecipherable text messages, which took us to a command prompt screen that proved too difficult to crack.

The most insightful information we found was hidden in the lining of the original website. After exploring the site a bit, we found a list of Twitter usernames, all who seem to be big fans of Rezz, and all who have been tweeting the key emoji back and forth with the Deathpact account.

After looking into the Rezz connection, we discovered that Deathpact is featured on “Life and Death,” a track from her upcoming album. Rezz has played the track out at a few festivals recently, and it is getting great response.

 

While all of this investigating eventually lead to a dead end, there is no doubt something invigorating is going on behind the scenes. Keep an eye out for more Deathpact news in the near future, because the story can only get better from here.

DA Premiere: REZZ hits the feels in cute new animated video for latest single, ‘Flying Octopus’ [Watch]Rezzlead

REZZ has a new album on the way via Mau5trap, and since early this summer, the Canadian beat maker’s sophomore effort has been one of the most hotly anticipated projects of the year. Following recent singles from the record, “Witching Hour” and the 1788-L-assisted “H E X,” REZZ has come through with another new piece from her upcoming Certain Kind of Magic LP, offering “Flying Octopus,” and the track’s accompanying music video as her latest delivery.

“Flying Octopus” tells the story of a little animated octo-boi and a group of underwater pals plotting their ambitious escape from the depths. The cartoon critters find themselves jerry-rigging a submarine to fly them out of dodge, set to the score of REZZ’ tingling, syrupy techno cut. While the video is a step away from characteristically trippy REZZ visuals, the new feature heavily leans on a message of lighthearted camaraderie, which ultimately aligns perfectly with the Mass Manipulation producer’s cult fan base. See the video for “Flying Octopus” here ahead of Certain Kind of Magic’s August 3 release.
