With new festivals spawning in all corners of the United States and abroad, it’s easy for an event to fly under the radar, but San Diego’s CRSSD Festival harnessed our attention with its outstanding music programming, gorgeous venue, and more. After an anxious few months, the long-awaited festival finally descended upon the bay front park, and thousands upon thousands attended to experience a summery soirée helmed by some of the world’s finest producer/DJs and musicians like Maceo Plex, Chromeo, Hot Natured, Robert Delong, GDD™ homies Thomas Jack, Viceroy, Bixel Boys, and SNBRN, amongst others. By now, you’ve probably heard that CRSSD Festival was a great success, but in our minds, it was the perfect way to kick off festival season.
Hear about our experiences on each day after the jump.
Los Angeles DJ/producer duo Bixel Boys had one of the biggest come-ups in 2014. Their #FREELIFE campaign stamped their ideology and branding on the foreheads of music and fashion junkies alike. Not to mention, their tunes are next level. Their first release of 2015 comes in the form of an official remix for Le Youth and his track “Real.” The boys take the nu-disco laced tune and flip it into a faster paced, more futuristic house heater. If you’re digging this, pre-order it now and show them some love.

Our close friends and undisputed musical geniuses, underground duo Bixel Boys, join Dim Mak Records with their innovative rework of Botnek and 3LAU’s collaboration “Vikings.” Mesmerizingly minimal and articulately crafted, the California duo reupholsters the once electro track into a smattering of spacey synths, delicate drum kicks and groovy basslines, injecting their patented touches of soul and swing truly making this one special.

They’ve done it again. The infamous LA duo Bixel Boys have landed an official remix to Kiesza’s #1 single “Hideaway” and have successfully sent it into deep waters without stepping on the toes of similar sounds. The product is energetic with a funky house feel and a sexy low end. The boys have been crushing a bigger sound as of late, but personally this is the Bixel vibe I love and hope for more of!

The Brothers Bix are back with their sophomore video from their sophomore EP, and in the true style and embrace of the #FREELIFE culture they so cheekily broadcast, it’s SPORTS. To be more specific, the video revolves around the Fab 5, who in their own way embrace the #FREELIFE style by being the Freshmen who champion their way to the top of everyone’s ‘talking about’ list. I see what you did there, Bixel Boys.
In true honor of #SPORTS and #FREELIFE, Bixel Boys have created a bracket competition for the NCAA Tournament. Top 3 winners of the bracket get a nice lil swag pack of merch, show tickets, and some super secret unannounced items. YOu can join in to the “Bixel vs. The World” over on ESPN.com here: Bixel vs. The World NCAA Tournament Bracket
B-B-B-B-Biiiiiixel! Seems like the LA duo have flames trailing behind their Nike shoes, with things heating up on the musical and show fronts. Having just announced their first North American tour, Bixel Boys look to be making strong appearances at places like SXSW and WMC, along with major clubs like Lure in Los Angeles and Cielo in New York.
The latest on the BB production front is their remix of Crystal Method’s ‘Over It’. Praised by many in the Bixel following to be their greatest production as of yet, the remix is definitely a high-spirited remix with a catchy melody… lots of posi #feels. Not over it. Oh ps free download because like I said before Bixel Boys knows bitches love a free download.
Bixel Boys will not stop until they’re sponsored by Nike #freelife, and then they’ll probably hit the ground running even faster. Their latest remix for Kayper is self-desribed as ‘Deep Booty Bass’ and we must oblige. Definitely a tool for DJs trying to make the ground shake and the booty break during their big room sets, while still keeping moody vibes. Have fun with this one, I know we definitely will.
