LA resident and our friend Audrey Napoleon has really stepped into the spotlight as of late. She’s moved away from her dark, Techy influences and immersed herself into the mainstream while still holding onto the intangible, attractive uniqueness that Audrey has always possessed. After multiple well-received singles, a set at the Heineken dome at Coachella, and a recent addition to ALL dates of the touring Identity Festival this summer, we’re happy to say that we expect the next 12 months to be absolutely huge for Ms. Audrey Napoleon. Have a first look here at the brand new music video for her track, ‘Poison,’ which will be out on her upcoming debut EP ‘Ornamental Egos’ this July.
The lineup and tour dates for the second year of the touring Identity Festival have been officially announced this morning, and we’re excited about the headliners this year. It seems as if Eric Prydz has overcome his fear of flying and will be making his first return to the United States since 2010 to headline this year’s festival. Some other notable acts on the bill this year are young guns Madeon and Porter Robinson, Dubstep dons Excision and Nero, and of course, Wolfgang Gartner. Tickets have gone on sale today for the low price of $25. Get ‘em before they’re gone!
The Colorado musical visionary, Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights, has been enjoying one of his most monumental years to date. I had the pleasure of seeing him at The Do LaB’sLightning in a Bottle last May, and since then, he has been making his summer festival rounds playing Bonnaroo, Hangout Music Festival, Electric Forest, Lollapalooza, and IDentity Festival to name a few. Derek has certainly come a long way, not only with his full tour schedule, but as an artist. His ability to paint an auditory masterpiece through his unparalleled versatility and unique approach of incorporating all of his musical influences (hip-hop, classic rock, downtempo, dubstep) into a track is a rarity in today’s saturated music industry. With every FREE release, I become more impressed and this latest, “Pretty Lights vs. Led Zeppelin,” remix is no exception, especially since there are seven Zeppelin songs that were sampled. It’s excellent to see the classic rock legends carry on through modern means!
