Review: Pegboard Nerds @ Uniun, Toronto (Oct. 3)

pegboard nerds-pumpthebeat.com-jpg
After an accumulation of ghost productions and remixes done for other artists, Alexander Odden and Mike Parsberg diverted their efforts into a collective project that is Pegboard Nerds ( an anagram of their surnames).  The dawning of this partnership has paid dividends that can be felt on the global level, which came knocking on Uniun’s doorstep as the latest installment to Factory Friday’s. Upon entering the venue, it was easy to identify the key features that allude to a great night such as the spacious dance floor and the LED lights that are well capable of heightening any musical and night life experience.

Alright, so let’s stop beating around the bush and dive into it. Characterized by heavier forms of dubstep, Pegboard Nerds gives the crowd an unspoken ultimatum that basically says – you’re either in it or you’re watching from the sidelines. But given that this is the city of Toronto, reciprocating the towering energy showcased by Pegboard Nerds was always part of the itinerary.

Their set included originals such as “Here it Comes” and “We are one” along with their high profile remixes of Krewella’s “Alive” and Adventure Club’s “Wonderland”.  The structure of their set ensured an array of different vibes that would ultimately turn Uniun’s interior inside out. If The Uncaged Tour stops in your city – be sure to save the date.

Review: Eric Prydz EPIC 3.0 @ Madison Square Garden

Eric Prydz 3.0 - pumpthebeat.com

I am very ashamed I did not make a move on this show earlier. This past weekend, Eric Prydz put on an incredible display of musical talent, visual greatness, and epic imagination. While we didn’t get a chance to attend, the guys over at Vice did and have dissected it down to every detail. To see what this show was all about, check out their write-up here titled, “Why Eric Prydz’s EPIC 3.0 at Madison Square Garden Was a Middle Finger Aimed at Lazy EDM”.

The title of their article should immediately attract your attention. It’s eye opening to say the least. One and done.

Event: Snowglobe in South Lake Tahoe, CA [Dec. 29th - 31st] – New Years 2015

Snowglobe 2015 - pumpthebeat.com

Here’s some New Years Eve news for ya. This looks like the place to be at the end of 2014. Porter Robinson alone on NYE would be worth the ticket but the line-up already looks insane. Snowglobe is unique in the sense that it’s outdoor in the heart of winter. Never been to an outdoor venue in the winter time so this would be something new for most festival-goers. Tickets are on sale now. Finish 2014 off right.
