SnowGlobeLineupTicketsSet Times

 

2014 has been a breakout year for TeamSupreme’s Djemba Djemba. He threw one of the hardest sets we saw at HARD Summer. If you’re looking for a high energy, sporadic, and all-around ridiculously fun party, then we suggest you share his energy on Tuesday night.

 

He sticks mostly to an 808 foundation of heavy trap, high-hats, jersey club, and jungle. As a precursor, you should expect a mosh here and there. Or you can come join the one we’ll be starting.

PXLX [pronounced poh-loh] hails from New Zealand. He supplies heavy beats and keeps them lofty with picturesque progressions. The result is a dreamy chill perfect for sunset sessions.

 

Check his bandcamp to support; join the $ecret Club for more awesome sounds.

Boys Noize | Baauer

A week prior to this event, our hearts were in somber spirits when it was announced that RunX had been cancelled. We had high hopes for the trap and hip-hop heavy sounds of Nadus, Lido, Spank Rock, Baauer, and, of course, Boys Noize. While his festival presence consists mostly of electro, Boys Noize’s intimate sets are a whole different animal that we haven’t experienced since NYE2014.

Boys Noize – 60 Min Triple J DJ Set

Baauer – Soulja

Much to our delight, the LA show at Club Nokia was preserved [sans Lido]. We stepped into the spacious theatre as Baauer was taking over the decks; and boy did he start his set off right. There was a minute of cinematic and triumphant sounds as he appeared on stage underneath a yellow spotlight. And then a heavy dosing of trap and hip-hop took over just as we expected [check the vid we got below!]. The lighting was provided via a pillar of spotlights: reds, yellows, whites, greens, and blues were the night’s colors. It wasn’t on the level of the Tower of Baauer, but much of the show was focused on the music anyway. As it should be.

The transition to Boys Noize was seamless. And the vibes just kept rolling. More rap, trap, hip-hop to sate our ‘all-black-everything’ souls. The occasional dark electro found its way into the set, which garnered audible appreciation from the crowd. The energy from the DJ’s was contagious and the excitement was definitely noticed in the audience. It’s unfortunate that only LA got to experience this coming together. But the tour was cancelled for the purposes of new music. So, we can only hope RunX 2.0 comes around sooner rather than later. And with some new fire to boot.

Nebbra | ZHU. | WKND | Sorry | Huxley

ODESZA + Say My Name ft. Zyra (Nebbra Remix)

ODESZA’s In Return was long awaited in the C+A+D ranks. Watching [and dancing along to] their rise has been quite the adventure. Likewise, we’ve kept an eye on Nebbra and couldn’t be happier that he decided to add his own chill trap skill to one of our favourite’s off the album. Vote for him.
Odesza – Say My Name (Nebbra Remix)

CHVRCHES + Gun. (ZHU Remix)

Following the release of the successful NightDay and a ‘Faded’ remix EP, LA’s ZHU decided to make us something a little more heartfelt. He adds his own pitched vocals to cover CHVRCHES’ Gun. The feature came via Triple J, and it’s quite deserving.
CHVRCHES + Gun. (ZHU Remix)

WKND x Chet Faker + Lover

WKND’s tropical house cover of Chet Faker’s ‘Like a Version’ cover of Sonia Dada’s ‘Lover [You Don’t Treat Me No Good’ is absolutely splendid. He adds a coastal dance-ability absent from the acoustic. Take it sunbathing.
WKND x Chet Faker + Lover

Sorry + Sextape

The anonymous Frenchmen of Sorry are known only by ‘SEXTAPE’. It is a vocal-free funk-fest to help you get the night started. They’ve an album coming soon and we can’t wait to forgive them for it.
Sorry + Sextape

Huxley + I Want You

‘I Want You’ is the first single off Huxley’s debut, Blurred, and its a huge turn from what we’re used to hearing from him. Not that its a bad thing, seeing as this track is one deep hypnotic trip that has us yearning. Preorder the album here.

JL | Soundcloud

Steel pan drums are all the rage for the tropical house scene, especially with this lovely summer weather. Along comes Aussie Alex Hiew, or JL, to mix things up with his new 2-side Never Have | Night Walk. You wouldn’t expect the upbeat echo in trap, but dear god it works so well. We’d expect nothing less of a DIE HIGH. affiliate. His other tracks experiment with other lovely island sounds too. Catch that guitar on ‘Hold Moi’. Most of his stuff is free to download through SoundCloud or Facebook.

Nebbra | Soundcloud

Parisian Nebbra is taking the electro hip-hop and trap influence and turning it on its head. He throws all the cuts, cymbals, chimes, whistles, pitched vocals, and hip-hop beats we’re familiar with thanks to Flume on top of calmer indie tracks to create extremely innovative chill music. He switched to this style from nu-disco 3 months ago and has since put out 5 remixes. His “Fall In Love” take even won Phantogram’s remix contest. Each one shows him experimenting deeper and deeper with this type of sound. All we can say is: we can’t wait to see how far this goes.

Chiefs | Soundcloud

In less than six months, rookie Melbourne producer Chiefs has managed to release a debut EP, some singles, and quite a few remixes including Drake, Robin Thicke, Major Lazer, Paces and most recently Crooked Colours. He draws sonically from Hip Hop, Trap and Jersey Club but still manages to keep it danceable. The R&B samples, heavy bass, and melodic synths come together for a trifecta of bassy goodness. Having been featured on both the first compilation album by Pilerats Records and DIE HIGH Records’ DIEHIGHlights and being championed by the likes of Ta-Ku and Stwo, big things are all but assured.
