The very thought of summer coming to an end is one we have trouble believing yet still have a few more top level festivals to keep us in high spirits. As people contemplate their end of season festivities, I'd like to share a few reasons why those still searching for plans should at least give thought to joining the thousands of us who will descend upon the majestic Union Park located in Chicago, IL for the fifth anniversary celebration of North Coast Music Festival; summers official last stand. Having graced this 3-day blowout event since its inception as an avid concert goer to now being a part of the official media outlet has been something of a dream come true. TSIS partnership with NCMF began last year as our interactive tent provided us the chance to connect on a personal level with you, the fans! You are the reason why we are in a position to offer and share this memorable occasion with you and to allow you to meet some of the biggest producers, DJs, rappers, and live acts in music at festivals like this and we are lining up one of our biggest official Meet and Greet at North Coast to date. 

The Location

The ease of getting to North Coast is unparalleled to many other festival of its size that we've experienced firsthand. Located close to all of Chicago's major highways and offering an overabundance of public transportation options gives the Near West Side venue of high accessibility for all. With over 25,000 people expected to be congregating in the Union Park each day, you will easily be able connect with fellow concert-goers as you make your way to and from the grounds each day.

The Music

The greatness of the lineup is the real reason why this festival has become renowned by many as the perfect end of summer's escape. There's music for everyone to witness and enjoy! With Bassnectar and his mainstage heavy bass hitters, Snoop Dogg & Kid Cudi bringing the true hip-hop vibes, and a new looking STS9 as the events main headliners, the lineup features an equally impressive spread of acts ranging from top producers & DJs including bass music assassins Zeds Dead, electro soul / saxophone specialist GRiZ, dubstep / electro sensations Adventure Club, and electro house's finest fleet of talent Dada Life, Alesso, Wolfgang Gartner, Showtek, Nicky Romero, W&W to the amazing indie bands Little Dragon, Future Island, Wild Belle, Dr. Dog, as well as hip-hop styles from the likes of Action Bronson, Riff Raff and Chicago locals ProbCause and Saba plus over 50 more acts over a three day period with a guaranteed national holiday / recovery day afterwards! What more could you ask for?

The Festival Atmosphere

Anyone true Chicagoan will talk your ear off at great lengths on why the city is the perfect place to reside or visit during the blissful summer months. With many flocking into the city over Labor Day weekend to attend the North Coast, it provides a wonderful atmosphere of good vibrations between many walks of life to come together and share a common love of live music with friends new and old. Memorable moments are to be created at random within the enchanted setting and will linger in the minds and hearts of all heading into fall / winter.

Posted in Bangin, Contests by nick | Tags: , , , ,

borgsou_remix (1)

When we announced our latest remix competition for rising LA producer / DJ Borgeous' single "Invincible", no one could have expected the number of submissions submitted. We are excited to be able to offer a lucky aspiring producer with the opportunity to not only have a huge list of production and performance gear, plugins and more, but an official release on Spinnin Records; the same label responsible for international dance hits like Martin Garrix's "Animals" or  Borgeous & DVBBS's "Tsunami" and hundreds more.

After thousands of entries and tens of thousands of votes, the TSIS team, Borgeous, and Spinnin Records have come together to announce the winners of the competition. We were originally supposed to have picked 3 total winners, but with so many unbelievably impressive remixes we had to increase that number and ended up picking a total of 5 winners for the competition. 

The grand prize winner is rising 19 year producer DJ Markus Cole out of Toronto, Canada who delivered a stunning electro house recreation of the track offering a hard-hitting festival edge. The remix will be an official release from Spinnin Records and he won the rest of the Grand Prize package. Second place going to LA based JayKode 's remix, which is one of the most altered remixes in terms of being different from the original coming in with a trapped out spin that couldn't be more ready to shut down the largest of festivals. Next up  is Ninni Angemi, a brand new producer / DJ from Catalina, Italy coming in with a melbourne bounce influenced electro twist to the original, packing some jaw dropping production quality throughout. Next up we have a unique melodic big room approach from newcomer out of Sydney, Australia, Glover. Lastly, Tel Aviv, Isreal stationed production trio Royal Disco who delivered quite the funky version. It was difficult picking through all the winners, and we couldn't be more excited to have teamed up with Borgeous and Spinnin Records to offer sucha an incredible opportunity and shouts to Wavo for powering the voting process. Congratulations to all the winners and great job to all those who entered. We have quite a few other remix competitions coming shortly, so make sure to stay tuned to look out for those. Enjoy!
