Being one of our favorite music festivals in the world made our stay at this years Electric Forest Music Festival one to remember as the entire TSIS team came together to take part in the magic within the Double JJ Ranch in Rothbury, Michigan. From many incredible sets, the unbeatable atmosphere and magnificent crowd, this year's Electric Forest was even more epic then we could have hoped for. This year's TSIS festival booth activation gave festival goer's the opportunity to "Meet & Greet" some of the festival's artists including The Glitch Mob, Zeds Dead, Pegboard Nerds, Paper Diamond, 12th Planet, Bro Safari, Kygo, and Seven Lions. It is always amazing to be able to connect with our readers on a personal level while offering the opportunity for you all to meet some of your favorite artists / DJs. We have uploaded all the photos from the meet & greets to our Facebook Page in their own albums with links to all below. Big thanks to Madison House and Insomniac with Electric Forest, the teams behind the artists involved for making the experience possible and Shea Flynn of Da Black Swan Photography for capturing all the moments.

The gorgeous yet fierce female rapper Iggy Azalea has enlisted bass connoisseurs Bro Safari and UFO! to lay the ground work for her newest track, a freestyle fitting titled “Animal Noises”. The production is a gritty bass heavy trap anthem laid out for Iggy to spit non stop bars throughout. This shows a raw side of the rapper who continues to see radio success with her singles ‘Work’, ‘Bounce’ and ‘Change Your Life’ this past year, this brings out a more raw side we first saw on her Trap Gold mixtape (executively produced by Diplo). You think Iggy has still managed to hold on to her raw energy while seeing commercial success?

Austin based Bro Safari and the mysterious UFO! have teamed up for the incredible free released Animal album spanning primarily trap with some drum & bass and dubstep. Featuring 10 tracks that could all be released on their own have been thrown together for a complete album journey, something not nearly enough artists strive to do. “Drama” is a pure trap anthem starting the release off strong, packing some vocal chopping and 808’s that will knock your face. The title track “Animal” stands out coming in mid way through the release is an extra dark glitchy trap ride including some fitting noises. All together the album is a great listen all the way through. It’s extremely impressive to see these artists making the effort to release a full album in this current state of artists feeling the pressure to release single after single.
REMIX CONTEST: Look out next week for details on our first ever remix contest we are hosting that is inconjunction with Bro Safari and Soundcloud for your chance to remix “Drama” off the album. We have some really exciting prizes for the winners. Official remix contest details coming next week!
