Video: Summer Set Festival 2014 Aftermovie

While Western Wisconsin may not strike you as party central, from what I can see, I might have second thoughts on what I was doing this past summer. Summer Set Music & Camping Festival is fairly new to the music scene. Judging by the aftermovie, there was no short supply of fun. Thought the video provided some good music and the first half is just all groove. Check it out and if you’re in the area next year, might be a good choice. The line-up was serious.

Summer Set will be back for 2015 and you can do a survey to enter to win 4 passes to next year here.

“Hard In The Paint” by SAMPLR x THE GROTTO

Seriously one of the most underrated trap tracks I’ve ever come across. These newcomers have dropped a formidable track that should scare fellow producers into doing better. SAMPLR, “A kid with a Macbook and some secondhand headphones” and The Grotto, composed of Aaron Van Den Hoek & Chad Leverington from South Australia, are new prospects we need to keep our eyes on and ears open for. “Hard In The Paint” hits hard with it’s sharp laser sounds and thumping bass, and I guarantee any trap-head like myself will lose it to this song.

Video: “Unholy” by Wolfgang Gartner ft. Bobby Saint [Lyric Video]

Wolfgang Gartner is a figure that has led the dance music scene all around the globe. If you’re familiar with his tracks, he usually favors electro sounds and is a huge fan of intricate layering and melodies.

When it comes to music production, Wolfgang Gartner is at the top of his game. “Unholy” is a whole new sound that fans have yet to hear from Gartner.

“Crank” by Kayzo x Seek N Destroy

Yep, Kayzo’s on a producing rampage; and he’s doing big things. The main theme for his tracks is obviously a heavier, darker feel. That’s what he tends to lean towards. Recently, he came out with his “No Scrubs” remix, which had a completely different kind of feel.

With “Crank” a collaboration with Seek N Destroy, we go back to his darker roots. More of an electro track, but the layered percussions definitely surprised me. Kayzo’s trying to be different, and it’s definitely receiving a ton of love.

Genres like deep house, electro house, festival house, and even hardstyle were represented at the event.

DreamVille will also be featured again at TomorrowWorld, which served as a temporary home to over 40,000 fans a night. This past year, TomorrowWorld had to expand DreamVille due to the unexpected amount of people.
