Freaky Deaky IV (Part Two)-Event Preview
If you're still alive after night one, and still have some more gas left in your rage tank, then never fear, you KNOW React Presents is looking out for us when they scheduled two nights of Freaky Deaky this year. The second night, being one of the most stacked nights I have ever seen for any event in the Chicago area.
Night two: Saturday October 27th
Chicago resident Dylan Castle, AKA Gunlove is one of the hardest working men in Chicago. Not only does he DJ under the name Gunlove, he is drummer for rising electro-funk band, Ghosthouse. He has played at the last two Freaky Deaky events, and has an impressive list of names he has opened for under his belt. Gunlove will create a unique playlist for any event he is asked to play, always adapting to said event. Get there early and don't miss this Chicago resident DJ.
New Zealand native, Zane Lowe, kicks off the night. Zane Lowe, a radio host on BBC's Radio 1 Mondays to Thursdays is no stranger to DJ-ing. Being a very successful radio host, he is a DJ that will always have the newest and freshest tracks. Expect to hear a heavy set, filled with a multitude of genres, I'm sure you'll be asking, "What was that track he played...?" After his set. To get a taste of what to expect, just listen and check out the track list of this mix he put out, it's got Sex Pistols, Swedish House Mafia, and Noisia.
Baauer hasn't had too many official releases, but the ones he has released have become instant hood anthems with the resurgence of trap music. Releasing the monster of a track, "Harlem Shake" on Mad Decent helped propel him almost overnight. He's successfully remixed Flosstradamus and No Doubt. Being an opening act at this show will just add to his already impressive list of names which includes, Skrillex, A-Trak, and Diplo. Oh, and he is only 23.
Kill The Noise
Kill The Noise has been touring, what seems like, endlessly the last year and a half. Being a part of hit collaborations with artists such as Skrillex, 12th Planet and Dillon Francis it's hard not to get thrusted into touring. He's been playing festivals, venues, nightclubs and everything in between. Kill The Noise is one of the most versatile producers right now, the epitome of a genre buster.
Australia's newest gift to the EDM community is none other than Tommy Trash. The last two years have been very kind to Thomas Olsen, he has released remixes for high profile acts like Deadmau5, Steve Aoki and Nicky Romero which have all been played out by many DJs around the world. This house superstar shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon, his most recent release which is a collaboration with Swedish house sensation, Sebastian Ingrosso is called Reload and it blew up overnight, just like Olsen's career.
One of the most coveted acts of 2012, Knife Party has been tearing it up since 2011's release of No Modern Talking. Knife Party was a side project belonging to two members of the electro-rock group Pendulum. Knife Party's success quicky overshadowed Pendulum, with hits that topped the charts of' 'Tracks most played at Ultra Music festival' (See, Internet Friends). Their sets and tracks are a quick fire sampling of dubstep, electro, drumstep and moombahton.
