Suwannee Hulaween Drops Diverse 2018 Lineup Ft. ODESZA, Jamiroquai, REZZ, Troyboi & More

In a time where music festivals have become some of the most in demand events across the globe, finding a fest that maintains a homegrown, down to earth atmosphere is difficult. Lucky for us, North Florida’s own Suwannee Hulaween does just that and more. 

Held at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida, this Halloween-themed festival brings together the best in electronic, indie, hip-hop, jam and more for four days of music. And the musicians are just one face of a many-faceted event – the Spirit Lake visual arts experience, interactive activities, food and wide range of attendees make for a truly one of a kind experience in one of the country’s most magical, otherworldly locations.

If that wasn’t enough, this week Hulaween dropped an absolutely incredible lineup for 2018. As always, the fest will bring The String Cheese Incident for three nights of amazing performances. The other headliners include ODESZA, Jamiroquai and Janelle Monáe. Support is just as unique from there with Tipper, REZZ, Gramatik, NGHTMRE, Lettuce, Troyboi, Snakehips, Opiuo, Kasbo and many, may more taking their talents to North Florida from October 26 – 28 (and the annual pre-party on the 25). Find tickets here and check out the full lineup above and the 2017 aftermovie below. Enjoy!

Mija Takes On Drum & Bass With Experimental New Single “Talk”

mija talk

Throughout 2018 Mija has proven her versatility as a producer again and again – from her debut EP HOW TO MEASURE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN LOVERS to last month’s drum and bass remix of Alice Glass’ “Without Love,” this year has no doubt been one of exploration for the Arizona-born producer. Today Mija is back with “Talk,” a striking new single that falls on the downtempo, underground side of the spectrum.

Accompanied by some downright trippy cover art, Mija continues to explore diverse new sounds with the short but sweet “Talk.” The song has numerous quirks, from the faraway vocal samples to a blend of drum and bass and, surprisingly, an almost hardstyle bass-breakdown that appears twice throughout the track. “Talk” is a bold release unafraid to stand out from the crowd, and it’ll definitely have you hitting repeat to dissect each layer again and again. Check it out below and enjoy!

Seven Lions, Kill The Noise & Tritonal Unleash Massive Collaboration “Horizon” Feat. HALIENE

Seven Lions kill the noise

After coming together throughout fall 2017 for the Horizon Tour, powerhouse producers Seven Lions, Kill The Noise and duo Tritonal dropped their much-anticipated collaboration “Horizon” feat. HALIENE today. Each of these explosive artists has been up to big things in 2018 – Seven Lions announced his Ophelia label and Kill The Noise dropped his incredible “Killumination” mixtape as he heads out on his own headlining tour, to start. “Horizon” is yet another impressive achievement from each of these musicians.

A collaboration between three groups (composed of four producers total) is easier said than done; with vastly different styles, the final product could have descended into a jumbled mess. Instead, each artist’s signature shines while still remaining cohesive with the track’s tone.

A euphoric intro guides the listener in, with HALIENE’s lofty vocals and a gradual build sounding quite Seven Lions-esque. The drop is split into three distinct sections where we can only assume each producer or group steps up to the plate. The first piece is reminiscent of Seven Lions, composed of a raucous kick and rumbling bass combined with glowing progressions. Next up is Kill The Noise – this dark section bursting with chopped up bass will no doubt take you by surprise. Last is Tritonal with a more radiant, lighthearted piece rolling smoothly into the outro. This style of collaborating was definitely a risk that paid off in leaps and bounds for these four. Check out “Horizon” below and enjoy!
