GDE’s Top Ten Acts to See LIVE at HARD Summer 2021

Wed, 07/28/2021 - 17:35

HARD Summer is back which means we outsiiiide!  After being indoors and event-less for over a year, everyone is READY to attend this favorite summer function. Following Insomniac’s debut of Day Trip, HARD Summer will be the second Insomniac festival to return in SoCal. This stacked lineup covers so many different genres and creative artists. Performances from globally recognized names in hip hop to the funkiest of house music to filthy dubstep and of course all the trap you could handle. With all these artists and genres to explore and discover, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. But don’t worry, we got you covered as we present to you GDE’s Top Ten Acts that you need to check out this year at HARD Summer.

Shall we get started?



Atlanta rapper and Dungeon Family veteran, Future is set to headline day one of HARD Summer on none other than the HARD Stage. Known for a uniquely fluid and melodic yet mumbling vocal style, rapper Future busted out of the South at the dawn of the 2010s with a flurry of mixtapes, high-charting albums, certified platinum singles, and contributions to several other hits as a featured artist with Drake, Juice WRLD, The Weeknd, and many more. You can definitely expect Future to play all his cuts from classic projects Purple Reign, HNDRXX, DS2, What a Time to be Alive (w/ Drake), & more. But fans are ready to let loose when he performs “Mask Off” live in front of the crowd.



Producer Kaytranada is a master at crafting both groovy house vibes and old-school hip hop together, taking your ears and mind on a melodic adventure. The Haitian-Canadian DJ stepped on the scene in early 2010 and by 2014 was signing with XL Recordings. Kaytranada is performing at major festivals all over the country and now you have the chance this Hard Summer to be part of this rare opportunity. Kaytranada has already remixed and done edits for major artists like Gorillaz, Snoop Dogg, and Kendrick Lamar and has had Teedra Moses, Kali Uchis and Pharrell Williams featured on his latest album “BUBBA”, which he won the award for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards and he also won the award for Best Dance Recording for “10%” with Kali Uchis. This man is ALWAYS a must-see when gracing any festival lineup and he deserves our attention this weekend at HARD Summer.



These two trap legends are once again going b2b to give one hell of a performance. After a few years of doing their own thing, the infamous trap duo join forces yet again to give fans exactly what they need, the ultimate filthy heavy trap experience of a lifetime. These two are no strangers to dropping a set together as we both saw the duo go B2B in Downtown Los Angeles at HARD Day of the Dead 2013 and it was easily the most talked-about set of the weekend. If you want to take a peek at what to expect from this globally recognized trap duo, they recently did a surprise performance set in Sydney, Australia at the Metro Theatre and you can catch the whole thing on YouTube thanks to a dedicated fan. But why spend time staring at your phone? Witness it LIVE in real life come this weekend on the HARD Stage.



Rezz has truly dominated her place in dance music over the last several years. Dubbed “Space Mom,” Rezz’s music is that dark, soul-bending, heavy bass that will hold you captivated and exploring a darker side of your music taste. She became a staple of the Mau5trap label in the latter half of the 2010s where she released a pair of full-length albums in 2017 and 2018. An EP and spate of high profile singles like 2020’s “Someone Else” and 2021’s “Sacrificial” followed over the next few years. On top of some incredible music, Rezz has performed at the world’s biggest festivals throughout her career and sold-out famous venues across the country making herself a staple in today’s new dance music generation. Her fanbase is not only strong in numbers and their commitment to their “Space Mom” but they can attest that once you experience your first live Rezz set, you too will willingly join the Cult of Rezz.



A synthesis of west coast hip hop and heavy-hitting house accompanied by some of your favorite lyrical moments from your favorite rap songs. Schade continues to climb drastically up the charts and the crowds that come to see him also have been growing exponentially. Schade has been supported and performed alongside with some of the most influential artists in the EDM industry like 4B, Wax Motif, Valentino Khan, SAYMYNAME, Jauz, and many more. If you see Schade performing, you should expect some heavy hitters close by as well. He also hinted at a possible secret set on day 2 of HARD Summer, so keep a lookout for that as well.



Having HARD Summer return this year was one thing but for this festival to bring back the biggest b2b from 2019 is just jaw-dropping. DJ Snake and Malaa hold their reputations both individually and side by side as hosting one hell of a performance. You are going to go from booty-shaking moombahton to heavy trap to your doses of tech house mixed with all your favorite beats. DJ Snake and Malaa announced that they are currently on tour together and Hard Summer is one of the 5 stops they will be doing in SoCal with a B2B happening at Insomniac’s new Oakland venue. If you missed their epic performance in 2019 then you have zero reasons to miss it now and why would you want to?!



Now, this is a historic moment in the dance community to have UK legend and Dubstep pioneer Skream performing at HARD Summer. His music knows no boundaries and covers so many genres from disco to house to techno to dubstep flawlessly. The fact that Skream will be playing an old-school dubstep set is extraordinary and an opportunity that may not ever come again for us here in the states. We saw him do an old-school dubstep set at EDC Las Vegas 2019 with Rusko and it was f*cking bonkers. If you are looking for that raw and real dubstep, that O.G. in your face dubstep that is paired with two decades of experience then we will be seeing YOU at the green stage for this old-school dubstep set.



If you are looking to shake some ass and party to your favorite EDM trap bangers then you better be pulling up to see this dynamic duo. Valentino Khan and 4B once again make their way to the stage to perform yet another infamous Hulk Gang set. We first saw the artists make their B2B debut at Audiotistic SoCal 2019 bringing one of the best sets of the weekend, keeping fans wanting more. Alongside some Henny and Hypnotic energy, expect a heavy mix of killer dubstep, trap bangers, and jersey club, you’ll be on the dance floor going from throwing back that ass to throwing elbows.



Making her way into the scene in 2014, Whipped Cream has demonstrated her talent to create different beats and not stay within one genre knows no bounds. Early into her career in 2017 her EP “Persistence” was released on Skrillex’s Nest HQ label. To really understand the complexity of her music you can catch her latest album “WHO IS WHIPPED CREAM?” on any music streaming platform. Every song is unique that brings in a new sound, with different genres blended together.



So we know that Hard Summer always brings out some major hip-hop players in the scene and seeing 2 Chainz headlining is no disappointment! This man is also no stranger to the festival as fans got to see him perform live back at HARD Summer 2013 in DTLA and we were personally there for the epic performance and we are so happy to see he is back after 8 long years. The hype and energy this man brings to his performances and the energy you’ll be experiencing in the crowd will undeniably be the most lit way to end your summer. Being in the crowd to hopefully hear some of your favorite 2 Chainz club bangers like his “Birthday Song” and “I’m Different” and of course you can not forget the almost countless amount of collabs 2 Chainz has done with almost every major rap leader in the industry. Everyone should hear the Drench God himself live at least once. Oh, and before we forget TRUUUUU!!!

DJ Snake Drops New Single, ‘You Are My High’

Wed, 07/28/2021 - 14:43

Today, multi-platinum producer DJ Snake unveils his latest release with new track “You Are My High”. On this record, the boundary-pushing disruptor fuses elements of traditional dance music with classic R&B funk to create a woozy electronic soundscape sure to be heard across the world this summer.

The song, which samples the classic track “You Are My High” from The Gap Band, follows last week’s release of DJ Snake’s high-energy club anthem “Ring The Alarm” with Malaa. The two tracks arrive on the heels of DJ Snake’s announcement that he will be embarking on tour across Europe and North America, including dates with Malaa, starting on July 29th in Chicago, IL. The upcoming 2021 run includes a stop at North America’s legendary electronic music festival EDC Las Vegas in October followed by Escape Halloween the weekend after.

Factory 93 Announces Boris Brejcha In Downtown Los Angeles This September

Tue, 07/27/2021 - 15:14

Los Angeles are you ready for The Joker? Factory 93 Presents Boris Brejcha at Skylight Row DTLA Saturday, September 11. Tickets on sale this Thursday, 7/29 at 12pm PT.

Born in 1981, Boris Brejcha started his musical education in his childhood.

His first two releases in 2006, “Monster” and “Yellow Kitchen” were released on the Berlin label Autist Records.

A few EPs later, Boris moved from Autist Records to Harthouse. With tracks like “Die Maschinen Sind Gestrandet”, “My Love” and “Lost Memory”, he combined his unique sound with a maximum of varieties. Consequently, he became the “exceptional Talent 2007” in the electronic music magazine Raveline. Boris also created his second alias called “ANNA” in 2007 and had some groundbreaking releases on Autist Records.

After four years of touring, three albums and lots of singles, Boris became a constant favorite in today’s club scene. With his ambition and desire for new and experimental musical directions, he shows his audiences over and over again how exciting minimal techno can be – so much more than just a conglomerate of repetitive and puristic elements.

Boris created his own music genre “High-Tech Minimal“ in 2012 which has often been referred to as “the intelligent music of tomorrow”.

After seven years of working together with Harthouse and his fourth album “Feuerfalter”, Boris founded his own label called „Fckng Serious“. Together with his best friends Ann Clue and Deniz Bul they want to spread their idea of good music and serious parties around the globe.

Just a year later we also saw Boris making his much-anticipated debut at Tomorrowland, the Exit Festival as well as the legendary Time Warp. A second sold-out bus tour, this time through France proved to be successful yet again and in 2019 things don’t get any slower but even bigger than ever before with a new album and a World Tour at the starting line.

“The future will be Fckng Serious”

REFORM Returns to Los Angeles Labor Day Weekend

Wed, 07/21/2021 - 20:49


REFORM returns to Los Angeles on Labor Day Weekend 2021 as a split day-into-night event concept that aims to showcase and elevate the presence of cutting-edge electronic music in Los Angeles, with a focus on quality Techno and House.

REFORM launched in 2019 with Robert Hood, Insolate, DJ Hyperactive and Annika Wolfe playing REFORM by Day, while Perc, Adam X, Dimi Angelis and EAS brought harder techno sounds to the REFORM by Night programming. Despite an already announced lineup in 2020, the REFORM team were forced to put their 2020 plans on hold due to the pandemic, but it is with the same ethos and goals that they announce the full REFORM Summer 2021 Lineup, taking place on Sunday and Monday of Labor Day Weekend.

On Sunday, September 5th 2021 REFORM will be taking over the bustling and historic bi-level Catch One venue with a 4-room House + Techno lineup. Located on Pico Avenue near Downtown Los Angeles, Catch One originally opened in 1973 and was the longest-running black gay dance bar in the city. It now serves as one of LA’s premiere multi-purpose venues, making it an ideal space for REFORM to host 20+ Techno, House and Experimental artists across four rooms.

REFORM by Day will be headlined by New York City legend Danny Tenaglia, underground techno and acid maestro Josh Wink, the industrial techno enigmatic figure that is Headless Horseman, and experimental techno-wizard Rrose. But the Day programming doesn’t stop there. Attendees will also get to experience Detroit native and long-time Brooklyn resident Lauren Flax fresh off the release of her “Out of Reality” album, as well as DJ Hyperactive and Truncate delivering an explosive, jacking back-to-back techno performance.

REFORM has also joined forces with Moe Espinosa aka Drumcell, whose BL_K NOISE imprint will be curating a dedicated Live Stage featuring performances by Richard DevineBaseckDeruKindohm, as well as Moe himself performing alongside Surachai as Sentence. The room will also feature visuals by OKTAform, one of the leading electronic music VJs in the world.

Rounding up the Day programming, REFORM has decided to give focus to the burgeoning Los Angeles techno scene, featuring sets by Annika WolfeJelaniJeniluvMonsieur FrazierØnyx b2b Insical, and Trovarsi (Live), several of whom will be performing in a dedicated Discovery Stage that aims to showcase artists who have put in great work right here at home in LA.

REFORM is powered by the teams behind respected underground event curators 6AM GroupSynthetik Minds and Dirty Epic, so while the Day programming is essentially a mini-festival on its own, the roots of REFORM will remain forever ingrained in the underground. It is with that in mind that REFORM is collaborating with DJ Mag for the official REFORM by Night lineup that will see underground techno mastermind DVS1 curate the entire night at an undisclosed location, from the sound system to lineup. For the occasion, DVS1 is inviting Bernt and Lonefront (Live) from his home city of Minneapolis to perform alongside him, as well Los Angeles’ very own Lindsey Herbert to open up the dances.

REFORM By Night tickets are available exclusively for attendees of REFORM by Day.

Tickets for REFORM 2021 are available on DICE:

Watch Swedish House Mafia Perform LIVE On The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

Tue, 07/20/2021 - 14:27

In four minutes, Swedish House Mafia laid down an exciting performance of two of their upcoming tracks on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show. They first performed their collaboration “Lifetime” with Ty Dolla Sign, then quickly transitioned with a flourish to “It Gets Better.”

Their stage setup featured the performers behind a scrim with their logo projected onto it. The video was played within the famous dots on the scrim itself, showing off Ty performing from several angles and the visuals from the tracks that we may we’ll see on a festival stage soon. The three were occasionally shown behind the curtain performing the songs and applying effects to the tracks to increase the energy.

This performance built-up hype around their upcoming album Paradise Again, due out later this year. Check out Billboard Magazine’s cover story on the trio here and check out their full performance below.

Factory 93 Pres. CamelPhat & Cristoph at Los Angeles’ El Pueblo Historical Monument

Mon, 07/12/2021 - 16:21

Lose yourself in a Labor Day Weekend groove to the silky-synth sounds of CamelPhat alongside Cristoph in Los Angeles at the El Pueblo Historical Monument.

We don’t know where CamelPhat hail from. We don’t know the first records they bought. We don’t know what they had for breakfast. We don’t know their names, their ages, their favorite colour or their shoe size. We don’t know if they can completely close their nostrils.

These are the facts we do know: They are a duo. They earned their stripes and studied dance music dynamics as resident DJs long before they produced. They rarely give interviews. They don’t leave the house without their trademark masks. They make authentic, timeless house music.

CRSSD Fest Drop Stacked Fall 2021 Lineup – Kaytranda, ZHU, Paula Temple, Flying Lotus, Sven Väth

Fri, 07/09/2021 - 14:52

CRSSD Festival will make its long awaited return to San Diego’s Waterfront Park September 25-26th. The festival today unveiled its phase one line-up for the Fall Edition, dropping more than thirty names that criss-cross the breadth and history of dance music. More names will be announced in the coming weeks.

Since its launch in 2015, CRSSD has sought to showcase the subversive stars and strains of dance music as well as highlight the burgeoning power of live electronic artists. The festival prides itself on giving prime slots to talents on the rise and securing rare West Coast performances from iconic artists. The urban oasis of Waterfront Park, with its grassy lawns, fountains and magical sunsets, are an entrancing city-center location to lose yourself in the wide variety of tempos and styles that CRSSD has built its curational name on.

As ever CRSSD’s Ocean View main stage will be filled with live acts, led by current Grammy winner, KAYTRANADA, and the enigmatic Zhu. German techno icon Paul Kalkbrenner will also soundtrack a live sunset set. The jazz infused electronica of Flying Lotus will sit alongside contemporary envelope pushers including Boys Noize and Jon Hopkins, while Tiga and Hudson Mohawke will also present the US live debut of their rave inspired LOVE MINUS ZERO project.

The legacy of dance music’s roots can be traced to CRSSD’s Palms Stage, with sets from Detroit figureheads Carl Craig and Moodymann, as well as East Coast house and club pioneers Mood II Swing, Todd Terry and the revered Kerri Chandler. Topping the Palms will be three of house music’s biggest current underground stars in Hot Since 82, Jamie Jones and CamelPhat. The stage will also host a performance from the South Korean multi-hyphenate, DJ, producer and vocalist Park Hye Jin.

Techno will be the dominant genre on City Steps, with a very rare West Coast set for Cocoon icon Sven Väth, as well as the incendiary ANNA and Paula Temple, Italian Max Kobosil and Detroit’s Robert Hood. There will also be notable house sets from Kölsch, Dennis Ferrer B2B Cassy, Rinse FM tastemaker T.Williams and South African trumpeter and producer Kareem Ali.

CRSSD is located at Waterfront Park, just minutes away from the Amtrak station. CRSSD’s grassy haven offers craft beer, gourmet food vendors, and a full mixology program. CRSSD is a 21+ festival.
