Watch Kanye Debut Insane Floating Stage For Saint Pablo Tour

Kanye West Floating Stage

Kanye West returned in a big way for the opening show on his Saint Pablo Tour as his first tour in three years. Kanye continually pushes the boundaries in all areas of his creative output, and has just taken his live performance to the next level debuting a floating stage at the tour’s debut in Indianapolis on Aug 25th. 

As opposed to having a traditional stage design, Kanye opted to perform while floating above the GA floor viewing area. The Saint Pablo setup is a spectacle in itself that allowed for a mosh-pit of fans to gather below the moving platform over the course of the show’s 31 tracks. His setlist includes many highlights off The Life Of Pablo in addition to some classic tracks including "All Of The Lights", "Flashing Lights", "Mercy", and more. See the entire setlist below and be sure to catch Kanye on his Saint Pablo Tour if you get the chance. Enjoy!

Watch Politicians Physically Fight In The Music Video For Run The Jewels & DJ Shadow’s “Nobody Speak”

Run The Jewels DJ Shadow Nobody Speak

Nothing compliments a great song quite like an amazing music video. Run The Jewels & DJ Shadow’s "Nobody Speak" collaboration has been brought to life with a wildly entertaining video. The song stands on its own as an impressive piece of work and the video's pure mayhem only adds to its appeal.

The frame opens up to a wide array of politicians arguing with each other. However, the debate quickly turns into an all-out brawl, showing a comical take on current politicians. "It's what I really wish Trump and Hillary would just do and get it over with," says Killer Mike of Run The Jewels. "And even in that fight I think Hillary would win - and that's not an endorsement.” DJ Shadow adds, "We wanted to make a positive, life-affirming video that captures politicians at their election-year best. We got this instead.” Enjoy!

Electric Forest 2016: The This Song Is Sick Secret Sets Were Unbelievable

Electric Forest Secret Set Family Photo

It's no secret that we're big fans of Electric Forest which goes down every year in Rothbury, Michigan. We’ve been long-time supporters of the magical music festival and just recently highlighted some of the event’s best back-to-back performances over the years, including a few from our signature TSIS secret sets that we've had the pleasure of throwing each year.

In 2012, we hosted the first-ever Big Grizmatik set featuring Big Gigantic, GRiZ and Gramatik. Last year’s addition showcased the epic back-to-back-to-back between Skrillex, SNAILS, Datsik, 12th Planet and more.

However, 2016 holds a special honor. In addition to our ‘Meet and Greet’ booth, the festival’s organizers provided TSIS its first official slot on the schedule and app, truly cementing the set. As the clock struck 1:00am on Friday night (technically Saturday morning) at the relatively intimate Observatory stage in the Forest, a sea of people gathered. 

The hype was real as countless attendees jumped up and down to sneak a peak at who the night’s performers would be. Rumors had spread throughout the weeks prior with names such as Pretty Lights, Big Grizmatik and others being tossed around, but no one knew what was in store.

The crowd went as far back as the eye could see and the elbow-to-elbow audience somehow managed to get larger with even greater energy. It was a truly an unbelievable sight. The stage was planted in the thick of the forest, looking over the crowd and a large balcony structure that was separated into three parts and two levels.

To kick off the night, Brillz and long-time TSIS Secret Set performer 12th planet (who may need to become the first ever secret set resident) took the stage in front of a roaring audience. The two did not hold back kicking the set off with banger after banger.

Next up, a wild Mija appeared from the side stage and the crowd simply lost it as she hopped into the back-to-back barrage. There was even a point in the set where 12th Planet and Brillz were literally praying to her as she was mixing. Mayhem soon rose as NGHTMRE joined the budding supergroup and hoards of fans somehow continued to pile inward, almost getting to a mildly scary point, as it already seemed over capacity when the set began.

As our final guest GRiZ was getting ready to hop on the decks, Electric Forest’s staff stormed the stage to have everyone cleared off. 12th Planet swiftly grabbed the microphone and echoed the statement. The crowd was very cooperative. The crew received reports that the amount of people on the surrounding viewing balconies far exceeded the maximum capacity the structure could handle.

Unfortunately, the damage had already been done as one of the balcony structures sunk into the ground, posing a fear that it would soon collapse and cause a major safety concern to those near it. 12th Planet gave a proper shout out to TSIS’ final mystery guest, GRiZ, as he stepped onstage to thank everyone for coming out (although he wasn’t able to join in on the back-to-back festivities). In short, there were literally too many people that came out to the set that it needed to be shut down entirely.

To lift the night vibes on Saturday, we threw a party until sunrise in the Good Life camping area that featured Anna Lunoe, AC Slater and Justin Martin going back-to-back before leading into Louis the Child, Getter, Cherub, Win & Woo and more. 

We are working with Electric Forest to come back next year in an even bigger way…maybe even a secret stage? Thanks to everyone that made it out and we can’t wait until next year!
