The hypnotic and alluring “Faded” originally created by the lovely Zhu just got remixed into an entirely new monster. The guys from Vices teamed up with Jailo to produce an insane ode to Jersey–and respectably Baltimore–club kind of remix, which Benzi first premiered on his Diplo & Friends Mix. By stripping out the sedated feels the original gives off, slapping it on top of a bit more speed, and incorporating the beloved club elements, the three are left with one hell of an end result. Shall we get faded one more time?

Summer is slowly coming to a close. There’s nothing we can do to slow it down (trust me, I have tried) but at least we can go out with a bang, right? Enter, North Coast Music Festival, labeled by many as ‘Summer’s Last Stand.’ The Festival has made Chicago its home since 2010, and is for many the last big party before going back into real life for nine months. I tried to compile a list of eight acts I think you absolutely should not miss. You won’t see artists like Bassnectar, Snoop Dogg or Zeds dead on this list because we all know who they are, and if you can, do not miss any of their sets. My list is consisted mainly of artists that not every attendee will know, it includes some Chicago locals, some growing trap names and some sets that you will dance your asses off at. Have a great time this weekend!

*Buy Tickets to NCMF 2014 Here*

Keys N Krates

Keys N Krates is a three piece band/DJ team from Canada. They consist of a live drummer, a turn tablist, and a synthesizer/keyboardist. Since emerging in 2008, they have been wowing dance floors all across the nation with their unique take on live electronic music. Their fame explosion came at the same time as the ‘renaissance’ of trap music. Tracks off their ‘SOLOW EP’ have been played out by the likes of Flosstradamus, Major Lazer and TNGHT. They prove that a live dance music performance can and should be much more than a person in front of his decks and a computer.

 

What So Not

What can be said about What So Not that hasn’t already been said in 2014? Flume and Emoh teamed up in 2013, after what I expect was an itch to create a bit of a heavier, more hip hop oriented sound. After releasing ‘Jaguar’ on Soundcloud, it reached more than 15,000 plays in four hours, and is now at over five million plays. What So Not combines what we love so much about future bass sounding music with the best aspects of trap and are not afraid to stray from the conventional path. They are currently signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label.

 

Cashmere Cat

Cashmere Cat is gonna prove to North Coast that you don’t need a ‘heavy’ set to turn a crowd on its head. After his amazingly successful remix of Miguel’s  ’Do You’ people started to take notice of Cashmere Cat and his unique sound and noise.He was eventually tapped to collaborate on a track with Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa and Jeremih. The crowd will not know how to respond when the sexual sonic assault strikes their ears. But don’t take my word for it. Check out the hour long mix he did for the Pitchfork MoMa series which consists of 40 tracks.

 

Prob Cause

The coolest part of having a front row seat to the emergence and growing popularity of electronic music is watching producers step out of their comfort zone and create more beat oriented projects with the goal of having a talented rapper spit a rhyme or two over it. Prob Cause is that talented rapper from Chicago. With collaborations with Chance The Rapper, Gramatik, Two Fresh and ExMag under his belt already, the sky is truly the limit. His unique backing beats are second only to his flow and natural comfort on the microphone.

Thibault

Thibault, is a North Coast staple at this point. Most of the time playing mid-day side stage sets with the energy and excitement of a main-stage headlining performer, Thibault is not a set to miss. His true appreciation for every single fan immediately sticks out and is not scared to call out his favorite people in the crowd. His attitude as a performer and as a human can be summed up with one quote from last year’s set, “This song is my way of giving each and everyone of you a huge hug!”

 

Ghosthouse

If you need a bit of an electro-disco-funk set to dance your butt off early in the day, then look no further. The trio has been a long time Chicago resident act and have controlled dance floors at popular venues like The Mid, The Metro,  and Schubas. They combine features from Chromeo, Van Halen and various R & B influences to create a musical experience like no other. Their stage presence and swagger will have you saying ‘Who are these guys and why do I immediately want to be best friends with them?’

 

MuzzY

Muzzy blew up onto the scene by being known as ‘That guy that plays guitar with GriZ.’ His amazing guitar skills have given GriZ’s sets another live aspect to it, besides the saxophone. MuzzY has branched out and now plays solo sets, that consist of some of the best hip hop and trap that you may not have heard before. Don’t worry, your favorite electro soul tunes will be sprinkled in between. Not only is he a talented musician, but he is one of the nicest and most sincere guys in the game right now.

 

 

Break Science

Ever since being ‘drafted’ to be part of the revolutionary Pretty Lights’ live band, Break Science have been doing less shows but North Coast Music Festival is your chance to catch the duo in action. The duo made up of Borahm Lee and Adam Deitch never fails to impress. Both with an extensive musical background, their influences cross paths throughout their song writing to create multi-genre releases that is reveled by the Pretty Lights Music Label.

Logic comes through with a self-produced chilled out track featuring a verse from Childish Gambino in the form of “Driving Ms. Daisy”. Definitely a slightly different sound from Logic than we’ve heard in the past, simply because of the added low-key vocal effects and layering. Similarly to Mac Miller/Larry Fisherman, Logic has slowly but surely brought along his production skills from subpar to superb. Always exciting to see artists who like to be involved in the entire process of their music coming together. Logic also showcases why he is still one of the best lyricists in the game while Gambino slightly tones down his flow for this one. Check it out below.

Atlanta born and bred music producer HeRobust sat down with me for a candid talk that ended up going behind the music. Boasting records endorsed by SMOG and Firepower, this southern hip-hop lover has brought his trap influence to heavy bass music and audiences across America are loving it. To bring you a more intimate side of the trapstep artist that’s dominating dance floors in your city, I sat down with the producer to get to know Hayden on a more personal level. We laughed at the sexual innuendo girls will play on his name to get his attention, played a fun game of “Would You Rather…?” and we even discussed how much we both would pay to see a DJ Pauly D vs. Paris Hilton in a DJ contest.

How did you get set up with Snails for your recent OWSLA collab?
Pretty typical way; ones a music nerd, the other is a music nerd, then you nerd out on each others music. From some of the sounds that he was using and that I was using we kind of deduced that we both use the same program, Reason, which is pretty rare. Not many people use that anymore. So, I guess we connected over that and a collab just seemed like the thing to do.

Any other awesome collabs coming up we can get excited for?
Nothing I can speak about currently.

How has being from the hip hop capitol of the world shaped you as an artist?
Everybody’s identity has influences and where you grow up basically dictates a lot of that. For me, that was southern hip hop. It just seems like no matter what I do there is going to be an element of that in there. I can’t really remove that–that’s just who I am.

Let’s talk about life outside of music. Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
Yes, I do. I’ve been to Mexico a few times and there’s this little surfing town called Sayulita; it has awesome food and awesome waves. I’m by no means a great surfer but, I have fun doing it.

Do you have a favorite junk food?
I don’t really eat junk food. I’m kind of a health fanatic. People kind of get to know I’m weird because I’m like a functional eater–I’m not trying to eat stuff that tastes the best. I’m going for what’s good for me over taste.

So, should I ask you what your favorite work out supplement is then?
Honestly I don’t bother with doing that kind of stuff either. When you’re on a bus tour you have a GREAT time but your health really just goes to shit. You get one legit meal a day and other than that you’re eating vegetables with hummus or like pizza at 5am. So for me, I lose a ton of weight because I’m just not eating enough or working out like I usually do.

With your busy tour schedule, how do you keep up your work out schedule?
I try to do it as much as I possibly can. Fit it in where I can. I’ll bring running shoes and just go for a run out of the bus. Barring any extreme hang overs of course ;)

Let’s have a little fun. Are you down for a little game of  ”Would you rather…?”
Haha! Ok, yeah.
Would you rather… Take the fat girl home… or have the fat girl turn you down?
Haha… I think I would choose turn me down. I think it would take me less time to get over that than actually taking her home. If my music homies found out–because my life is basically entirely public on the internet–that could really spiral out of control, haha.

Have a threesome with two nasty chicks… or one hott girl and one hott guy?
I’m not interested in a having a threesome with two nasty chicks AT ALL… I’ve never had a threesome with a dude involved… So I guess I’ll go with the second just because I’ll just block the guy out. It doesn’t really matter if the dude is good looking or not to me, haha, that’s a funny part of the question. For sure though… two nasty chicks is definitely worse than one.

Accidentally send a naked selfie to your mom… or have her accidentally send one to you?
Probably send one to my mom just because I care about my mom and I wouldn’t want her to have to deal with the embarrassment. I’d rather take one for the team.
Awww :)

Go home with the hott girl from the Wolf of Wall Street or spend the night at the bar talking to Micheal Jordan?
Go home with the girl! Are you kidding me?! Look, you can print this, HeRo is on the record: Michael Jordan is overrated.

Be sexually attracted to vegetables… or not be sexually attractive to anyone?
Sexually attracted to vegetables. I even think you could make the case that being sexually attracted to vegetables is easier than being sexually attracted to the opposite sex. If you think about it… how easy would your life be after that? Haha! I mean I don’t know exactly which vegetable I would take home to mom but, I think if you’re a girl there’s obviously some options. Carrots come to mind. You could do some traveling and try out different indigenous vegetables.
Haha!

Has a girl ever done anything crazy to get your attention?
Yes *blushes*. There’s the obvious wordplay that they use… *embarrassingly* y’know… “HeRo-bust on me”. I’ve gotten that a decent amount of times. To be perfectly honest, it’s the actual real people that you remember. The people that talk to you like you’re a real person and not like a character. That’s the only way you’re going to actually connect with them or be friends with them. It’s when you get that text message sitting on the couch–that’s the stuff that works. But I guess I definitely remember the girls who wrote “HeRo-bust on me” too, so… I can’t say that didn’t work, haha.

Have you ever done anything crazy to get a girl’s attention?
No. I’m a really low key person. My usual tactic is to play the #2 position… and then swoop in.

Blonde or brunettes?
I really don’t have a preference. I will say this though–healthy hair is very sexy. I notice that moreso than I notice the color.
Aww you pay attention :)
Well… not too much, haha!

Have you ever written a song for a girl?
Yes.
Is there an interesting story behind that that you would like to share?
That’s pretty much the extent of the story. I did that once.
Was it “SHEKNOWSHEBAD”?
Haha, no. Wait… actually yes. That was actually for A LOT of different girls, haha.

In a DJ competition who would win: Paris Hilton or DJ Pauly D?
Haha! Wow. I don’t know. I guess I gotta go with Pauly D because I’ve never seen someone actually DJing FOR him and so I assume he knows what he’s doing.
Would you not pay to go see something like that though?

OF COURSE. Absolutely.

Realistically… I would probably pay $30 for that.
Oh I would pay WAY more than that. And you know what, there are people that don’t see the comedic value in this that would pay $3,000 dollars.
You’re right. That’s even more funny. The people who would be there–
Buying bottle service and shit!


Yeah! Haha! Look at what Paris is raking in playing in Ibiza–just imagine what you could sell tables for. Someone’s gotta get those two in a room together.
Are you thinkin’ what I’m thinkin’?


I’m thinking you and I need to go in on this project and make a shit ton of money, haha.
Run The Trap presents… DJ Pauly D vs. DJ Paris Hilton… Guests include A-trak… haha!
If a festival did that I would have to imagine everyone there would be there.
They would be there, but that could also get like… violent.
Haha!
There are gunna be people like us who think it’s funny, then there will be the radicals who are probably going to throw shit at the stage. Then you’re going to have the people who actually want to see it and they’re going to take offense to the fact people are throwing stuff at the stage. If you dropped like $8,000 on a table to see your two favorite DJs in the world face-off and someone’s throwing bottles at them you’re going to be pissed.
I still want to see this.
I want to see it EVEN MORE if it gets like that, haha.

Let’s go back in time… What were you listening to in middle school?
Anything Cash Money Records, Master P, Biggie… I started to get into Aphex Twin and Squarepusher. Definitely a TON of Outkast. Mostly southern hip hop and just my beginning exposure to electronic music.

What did your taste morph into once you reached high school?
It kind of stayed the same. I started to get into more ignorant rap instead of the conscious rap like Nas’ Illmatik album. Still one of my favorite albums of all time. That’s a very well-done classy record, but then I started to see the entertainment value of dirty south bullshit rap, haha. Now I love 2 Chainz and stuff like that. On the electronic side I went everywhere. I didn’t go to EDM, I just arrived there. I found electronic music and was just obsessed with the original nature of it; that you could make ambient sounds for like 2 hours and call that an album. And I swear to god I used to listen to stuff that people thought was just noise–it was just noise. It’s ridiculous the shit I used to listen to. I would get into subgenres of subgenres. So, on one side, I was into this super obscure snobby electronic music then on the other side I was listening to not the most intelligent kind of rap. It was opposite ends of the spectrum.

What was the last song you have had on repeat?
Hmm… I liked the original 2 Chainz stuff–I don’t like his newer stuff. Drake is awesome. Man, I still have D’Angelo pretty much on repeat to be perfectly honest. That’s always happening.

Thank you so much for taking your time to sit down and chat with me. I know you’re a busy guy and we really appreciate you carving out a little time for us!
Thank you! I appreciate it!

LA based producer HOODBOI is a jersey club master. This remix is slightly less aggressive than the usual jersey club tracks we hear from him, without a single bed squeak sample to be found. It’s bouncy, energetic, and the use of the vocals are perfect. Don’t sleep on this track- the chilled out vibes make for a perfect farewell to summer.

Coucheron is a Norwegian producer who has been in the game for a while without the credit he deserves. One of my favorites of his is a remix of B.o.B‘s “HeadBand”. It’s the ultimate summer song, a total transformation of the original. Definitely going to be on the lookout for this guy’s tunes in the future. Have a listen to both tracks here!

10348655_850463341648708_4301962098369881286_oFrench duo Alesia bursted on to the scene with their smash hit song “Bird Machine” with fellow Parisian DJ Snake. But that’s far from all they got. They have put out some really dope and unique underground music throughout the past year and we’ve dug up five tracks (four free downloads) that somehow slipped through the cracks. Better late than never, right? The first track is the best remix of Jeremih and YG’s “Don’t Tell Em” we’ve heard yet… I seriously can’t stop playing it. “Uh Uh”  and “Andrea” are both quite a trip too. Check out the lot below.

Amsterdam producer Ganz has a knack for reinventing music. Each and every one of his remixes has come as a pleasant surprise and this one is no different. His remix of “Love Alight” by Crystal Fighters is almost whimsical. It stays true to both the original and features Ganz’s usual production style– little bits of hesitation followed by full flex stabs of melody and vocals. It’s up for free download, have a listen here.
