Freaknight is one of my favorite festivals of the year. What’s better than cramming into a dark, warehouse-style arena with 25,000 or so fellow festie-goers with carnival rides, crazy stages and letting your inner freak out on Halloween night? Not much. The folks over at USC have finally graced us with the long-awaited lineup for this year’s Sinster Circus. Check it out after the jump.

Freaknight 2014 Lineup

The Lineup

USC has broken the mold of the typical Seattle festival lineup. Of course you’ve got your main attractions like Kaskade, Tiesto, Dillon Francis and others you’d all but expect to see on a lineup of this scale, however, there are also tons of amazing artists you might not typically see. Artists like Galantis, Snails, Yellow Claw, and MT Eden. Freaknight 2014 has a huge variety of artists across many different genres. To put it in layman’s terms, there’s something for everyone. You can check out the full lineup above.

The Sinister Circus

Freaknight is packed with wild attractions, a passionate crowd and amazing performers both on and off the stage. When it comes to festivals, everyone experiences them differently. There are a number of variables that can negatively effect personal experiences, from long lines to inconsiderate jerks, the list goes on and on. Thankfully, you won’t find much, if any, negativity at Freaknight. USC has nearly perfected the art of throwing a festival…and it shows. The wait to get in is almost non-existent so you and your crew can get in and get freaky almost instantaneously. Remember that time you were in the crowd, gettin down to your favorite artist and the people around you ruined the experience? While I can’t promise you won’t run into a few party poopers here and there, for the most part Seattle has a healthy, happy and helpful crowd. Need water? Ask anyone and they’ll gladly give you a sip or a chug. Everyone’s there to have a good time and the good vibes resonate throughout the entire event. Seattle has a reputation for having a great scene, which has been reinforced by The Message and the Conscious Crew. Working closely with event security, they ensure that everyone in attendance is taken care of, has a good time and, above all, safe. I guarantee you will have a wicked time and no I’m not from Boston. If you’re even thinking about going, I urge you to do so.

He reworked Justine Skye‘s ‘Collide’ and flipped it into a bumping’ future house track. Luca starts it off with a repeated “back it up” sample giving it a fun feel before bringing in the low end vibes and Justine’s vocals all at once. This one turned out great and Justine’s voice was made for house bangers. This one is ready for the clubs and home speakers alike. Luca Lush wanted the faithful RTT readers to hear it first, so have a listen and cop that free download below if you’re feeling it.

Massachusetts producer ABSRDST comes in hot dropping the second single “Skin Contest” off his forthcoming NestHQ-backed EP entitled Love in the Making. Featuring production help from the talented JSTJR, “Skin Contest” is a synth-driven and groovy ‘funkified’ anthem that’ll without fail spark up the party or turn things up on any dance floor. With future bass in general becoming more and more one-dimensional and over-saturated, ABSRDST’s hip-hop and disco influenced record is a breath of fresh air. Peep the track below, show ABSRDST some love, and stay tuned for the whole EP dropping on Monday.

Despite touring all over North America and Europe this Summer, Flume’s new album is certainly under way. In a recent interview with Australian radio station Triple J, Flume talked a bit about the upcoming record. Here’s what he had to say about the different types of sounds he’s experimenting with:

“What I’ve been doing is I’ve been getting a lot of Hollywood sound effects libraries and cartoon sounds, sounds that humans have made up, and using those sounds in the music where they shouldn’t be used. Instead of claps, these days I’m using ice cracks, like an icicle cracking against a table, just weird things like that. Dropping glass jars of honey on the ground.”

He goes on to mention that a new What So Not EP is in the works and that you should be hearing new music from him “really soon.” Personally I couldn’t be more excited to hear what Flume, who is already known for being an innovative producer, will be able to come up with. He also states that if you’re in Sydney and going to Listen Out this weekend, expect to hear a lot of new material from Flume as he has been working in the studio ever since he got back to Australia. The rest of us will have to wait, though, pondering what this amazing artist has up his sleeve.  You can listen to his entire interview with Triple J below.
