Lightning In A Bottle | The Do Lab

The Do LaB’s flagship festival, Lightning in a Bottle, attracts some of the weirdest people – in the best of ways – we’ve ever met. For two of us, this was our first time attending a “transformational” festival and it definitely won’t be our last. For years, we had to deal with all our other friends expressing how amazing the “vibe” was. We finally got to find out first hand at the 2014 installment. Check after the jump for how it went.

There’s no denying that An-Ten-Nae was one of our faves at LIB 2013. Since then, he’s partnered up with Re|eece to create music as Dimond Saints. Under this moniker, the two are mashing future beats with the deep bass sound that LIB prides itself on. It’s easy to get lost in the rhythm. Just how we like it.

They play Saturday at 8pm on the Bamboo Stage. Come flow with us.

LIB Spotlight brings attention to special artists that will be featured at Lightning In A Bottle Fest 2014.
Some we love. Some we just discovered. All essential.

Hopefully you’ve been with us long enough to understand our praise for Chet Faker. What started as one of Flume’s consistent collaborators, turned into one of the most promising voices of the underground. He may look grungy and intimidating with that wicked beard, but you’ll have to refrain from judging this book by its cover. This Aussie puts out one of the most emotionally confident voices that just seems to put us at ease. His downtempo beats come off as a lullaby in recording, but pack a very unique groove when performed live. (Check after the jump for his Boiler Room set.) All of this bundled with his staggering debut album Built On Glass had him make our list of the best underground acts of 2014.

He’s set to go off at 7:40 on Sunday, which is bound to be one of the best sunset performances of the weekend.

Kraak & Smaak are a trio from the Netherlands who have that whole “anti-genre” vibe about them that we love. You’ll find hints of jazz, disco, funk, indie, soul, pop, and house all throughout their music. Their 2013 album Chrome Waves is one of my favourites. They also host a weekly show on Sublime FM called Keep on Searching that spotlights the current underground as well as some rare, old school, dug-up tracks. It’s amazing.

They’re playing at 8:50pm on Saturday at the Lightning Stage – don’t miss out on what is promising to be a smooth and funky set.

Lightning In A Bottle | Rush-N-Get-Em

While we may be new to the family, we know a good thing when we see it. The experience we had at The Do LaB’s 2013 Lightning in a Bottle music and arts festival changed our lives for the better. We didn’t experience the shady authorities first-hand but it appears it was enough for The Do LaB to find a new location for one of our favourite festivals. LIB 2014 will be taking place at the beautiful San Antonio Recreation Area in Bradley, CA.

Check after the jump for music and pictures we took of 2013’s installment.
