Imagine Goes All Out for 5th Anniversary

Bassnectar at Imagine 2018

Imagine Music Festival, hosted by Iris Presents at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, went all out for their 5th anniversary this past September 21-23, 2018, featuring some of the most popular artists in the electronic music world. The Oceania Stage featured a slew of artists like Bassnectar, RL Grime, Zeds Dead, Kaskade, Galantis, Adventure Club, The Glitch Mob. The Amazonia Stage stayed true to its roots, hosting a variety of electronic fusion and jam bands like Griz, Zhu, Jai Wolf, Cashmere Cat, Shpongle, Eoto, and Lotus. Meanwhile, the Disco Inferno Stage featured some heavy-hitting bass artists on the first night, like Joker, Koan Sound, Shlump, Noisia, Boogie T B2B Squnto, before switching up to primarily House music on Saturday and Sunday nights. Disco Inferno played host to Green Velvet’s Lalaland on Saturday night, joined by Tiga, Walker & Royce, and Latmun. Sunday night was witness to Oliver Helden’s Heldeep Records takeover accompanied by Chocolate Puma, EDX, and Wax Motif. A slew of other artists filled in the gaps throughout the weekend, ranging from all sorts of genres like Trance, House, Dubstep, Freeform Bass, Drum & Bass, Electro Funk, and everything in between, including a silent disco that hosted artists late into the night when the main stages ended for the night.

Jai Wolf at Imagine 2018

In its fifth year, Imagine made some noteworthy changes to the stage and visual design. The Oceania Stage got a significant facelift with the help of Algorhythm Designs. The new design featured a wide footprint with an aquatic theme, complete with sea-creature-themed dancers and performers, some of which performed from raised half-dome shaped pools on either ends of the stage. Because of the cost of the enormity of the 5th anniversary lineup, Imagine scaled back the scope of other stages, like Disco Inferno, Amazonia, and Aeria. The Disco Inferno Stage still featured stage design and pyrotechnics courtesy of Incendia, although on a smaller scale compared to last year. Similarly, the Amazonia Stage looked more like the design from 2016 than 2017, although still staying true to its Amazon-jungle theme with vines and foliage draped above the stage. Additionally, there was a smaller presence of live painters and artists that often painted in the vicinity of the various stages. While the toned-down scale of the stage design was a bit of an adjustment, many would argue that it was a worthwhile tradeoff, considering the depth of talent of musicians and artists booked for the weekend.

It looks like Imagine wanted to bring out the big guns for their fifth anniversary. From a music standpoint, they succeeded on that front. After that banger of a musical performance, it could be worthwhile to change things up and see what Imagine would look like in the future with a little less money spent on pricey headlining artists, while reinvesting that money into unique stage designs, art installations, and up-and-coming musicians and artists.

Phoenix Lights 2017 Artist Preview

Phoenix Lights

Phoenix Lights 2017 takes place April 8-9, 2017, and this year’s line-up has a strong showing of talent. This event will take place at the Margaret T Hance Park in Downtown Phoenix and you can get your tickets from Relentless Beats. Here’s the break-down of some artists that are going to be there.

Saturday Lineup
Above & Beyond • Asadi • Bro Safari • Codeko • Dr Fresch vs Bijou • Ekali • Felix Da Housecat • Grum • Hucci • Illenium • Jax Jones • Josh Wink • Keys N Krates • Loudpvck • Low Steppa • Pete Tong• Sacha Robotti • Said the Sky • Shaun Frank • Sirus Hood • Tchami • Tiësto • Tiga • Vindata • Wingtip • Zeds Dead

Asadi
Young Columbus, Ohio Dj, producer, singer, songwriter, and musician Daniel Asadi is just starting to perform for big crowds. Don’t let that fool you though Asadi absolutely knows how to work that DJ booth. He also has some big shows coming up this year: Electric Forest, Euphoria, and Elements Lakewood Camping Festival to name a few. He makes Persian trap sound amazingly flawless. Some artists that have influenced his sound would be Travis Scott, Mura Masa, and Kendrick Lamar. It will be exciting seeing what this young man has to perform at Phoenix Lights.

Illenium
Denver resident Nick Miller, better known as Illenium, began making EDM in early 2008, but didn’t become passionate about releasing his
own work until after he saw Bassnectar in 2012 at Red Rocks. Some music influences are Bassnectar, Adventure Club, ODESZA and Porter Robinson. Nick actually launched his own label, Kasaya Recording, to release “Ashes” with Seeking Blue. In Illenium’s live shows, he engages fans with his with future bass originals and he has a hybrid set up of drum pads, keyboards, and CDJs. He loves to incorporate as many live elements to his shows as he can. This live show will be something to see and hear.

Tchami
French producer and DJ Martin Bresso, known as Tchami, is the pioneer of Future house. Tchami began using this stage name in Africa and became recognized after releasing a remix of “Go Deep” by Janet Jackson. He was the first to start using the term “future house” in his SoundCloud post tags which eventually become recognized in the electronic music industry. He launched his own record label, “Confession”, in 2015. Tchami is bringing a stunning church stage with a live choir, which will bring another level to his stage presence at Phoenix Lights.

Sunday Lineup
21 Savage • Alesso • Billy Kenny • Cashmere Cat • Coyu • Crizzly • Ganja White Night • Go Freek • Griz • Helena Legend • Justin Martin • K?D • The Knocks • Lane 8 • Manila Killa • Oliver Heldens • Pig & Dan • STS9 • Thomas Jack • Tokimonsta • Unlike Pluto • Viceroy • Vince Staples • ZHU

Thomas Jack
This Aussie DJ is known for his tropical house fusion. Thomas Jack’s music makes you feel like you are lost in an endless summer. Some inspiration for his sound is Enya, Pleasurekraft, Jack Johnson, and Paul Kalkbrenner. For Jack’s music he likes to use live flute, saxophone, piano, and guitar. You expect to feel like you are having some Sunday fun, some where in the warm sunny of some gorgeous beach when you hear him perform.

ZHU
Steven Zhu is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and electronic musician. Zhu remained anonymous until mid-2014, he asked to be judged for his music. This Chinese American choice to release his music anonymously, because he believed race played a role, saying: “Some of us don’t even know the limitations of our own prejudice. Rather than put those limitations to the test, we’ve created an engaging way for fans to focus on the music rather than who’s behind it.” Zhu has a dark, moody, dreamy, and sometimes cinematic vibe to his live performances.

This weekend don’t forget to stay hydrated things will be heating up in Downtown Phoenix and as always have fun at Phoenix Lights.

If Phoenix Lights isn’t enough for your music fix, there are several after-parties that will be happening this Saturday and Sunday.

April 8: Hannah Wants – Dark Matter at Monarch Theatre
April 8: Illenium + Crywolf – Supernova at Monarch Theatre
April 8: Josh Wink – Stargazer at Bar Smith
