Phoenix Lights 2018 First Encounters DJ Competition

The multi-stage festival will be held at The Park at Wild Horse Pass, a brand new venue experience, specifically created with Relentless Beats and its events in mind. The custom built park situated at Wild Horse Pass in Chandler, Arizona, is being optimized in order to provide the best possible experience for the Valley’s biggest promoter of electronic dance music events. To be completed in a series of phases over the course of 2018, with the first event being Phoenix Lights, the park is situated adjacent to Rawhide Event Center, on a mostly grass plot able to handle the steady growth of Relentless Beats’ marquee events, including: CRUSH, Phoenix Lights, Global Dance Festival, Goldrush and more. Carrying the full support of the local community, The Park at Wild Horse Pass will provide an experience that will be devoid of the sound and size restrictions that were often a hinderance at previous venues. The park is set to open in April 2018.

CRUSH Arizona 2017 Artist Preview

CRUSH Arizona 2017

CRUSH Arizona 2017 is less than a week away, and this year its a lineup you’ll wish you had seen. The event will be at Rawhide in Chandler, the 18th of February. Tickets are still available if you haven’t purchased yours yet. Here’s a little preview of some of the artists that we are excited to see!

BTSM (Black Tiger Sex Machine)
Marc Chagnon, Julien Maranda, and Patrick Barry form the Canadian trio from Montreal. BTSM rocks various forms of aggressive and dark electronic music. Their live performance is unique. They perform as a three piece band with a special light show. Their performance is something you must experience. This trio is well known for their state-of-the-art tiger helmets. Some tracks we can’t wait to see BTSM perform are “Destroy It,” “Face Down,” and “Rapid Fire” with Dead Battery.

These brothers, Chris Chronicles and Alex Andre, are a Canadian electronic duo that was formed in 2012. They’re most famous for their international hit with Borgeous, featuring Tinie Tempah, titled “Tsunami.” This track hit number 1 on the UK Singles Chart and DVBBS is currently ranked No. 16 by DJ Magazine. In 2013 these brothers were awarded at the Canadian Urban Music Awards for their track “One To Watch.” Their latest album “Beautiful Disaster” has our favorites like “Ur on My Mind” and “Not Going Home” with CMC$ featuring Gia Koka. Other songs we’re excited to see them perform would be “Gold Skies” featuring Aleesia, “We Were Young,” “Raveology,” and “Never Leave.” These brothers bring a spark to every show they perform and I wouldn’t expect anything less when they perform at CRUSH AZ!

GTA (Good Time Ahead)
Matt Toth and Julio Mejia make up this dynamic duo. Their Miami heat of hip-hop and tropical vibe in every track is in your face loud. They love to play around with trap music, house, moombahton, funky eletro, booty bass, salsa, big room, and anything else they can put their flavor on. These boys have been busy making music for Warner Bros., A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold, Laidback Luke’s MixMash, Steve Angello’s SIZE, Diplo’s Mad Decent and more. They’ve also toured the globe with Rihanna for her 2013 Diamonds World Tour and with Calvin Harris & Tiesto on their Greater Than World Tour. They have also headlined their own Death To Genres Tour and Goons Take America Tour. Some tracks we’re excited to see this duo perform is “True Romance” featuring Jarina De Marco, “Little Bit of This” featuring Vince Staples, “Illuminate,” and “Help Me!” from Star WarsHeadspace.

Dayvid Sherman, aka SAYMYNAME, was formed in 2013 from LA. He has performed at Insomniac’s Basscon, EDC Las Vegas 2013, 2014 and 2015! He is the pioneer of #HARDTRAP, which lead to his label of God Father of HARDTRAP. His remixes like “Propaganda” by DJ Snake, “Telephone” by DVBBS & Mike Hawkins, and “Roses” by The Chainsmokers are only a few that we can’t wait to see live. God Father Sherman brings fabulous stage presence and ridiculous drops and basslines which makes crowds go insanely crazy!

We can’t wait to see you at CRUSH AZ 2017 Friday, February 18th!
