In just a few short days we’ll be heading south with tens of thousands of other music fans for Okeechobee Music + Arts Festival. Now in its third year, this four-day gathering kicks off festival season right with 600 acres of tropical south Florida woodlands, interactive activities, delicious food and, of course, a jaw-dropping 2018 lineup.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re stoked to be teaming up with Okeechobee for the second year in a row with our Endless Vibes Beach Party. Last year’s beach party was wild with TSIS regulars Kasbo, Louis Futon, Brasstracks and Whethan bringing the heat all Saturday long.
This year’s beach party has an incredible lineup with Flamingosis, Chet Porter, DROELOE, shallou, and CloZee on deck. As a preview of what to expect, check out more about each artist and some must-hear tracks below.
Flamingosis – (1:15 – 2:15 p.m.)
There’s arguably no better artist to kick off a beach party than the silky smooth Flamingosis. This New Jersey-based producer seamlessly weaves genres like disco and funk with R&B beats to create a chill, irresistible signature sound that resonates with any listener. For an idea of what to expect from this laidback artist, check out “Finesse” and "Glide" below.
Chet Porter – (2:30 – 3:30 p.m.)
One of the acts who's come from ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective and has us extremely exciting Chet Porter. With a chill style that blends glowing synth chords, bouncy percussion and euphoric vocals, this producer embodies the “endless vibes” idea with flying colors. The dreamy “Stay” featuring Chelsea Cutler and remix of Kailee Morgue's "Medusa" are a perfect glimpse into what Chet Porter will bring to Okeechobee’s Beach Stage. Check them out below.
DROELOE – (3:45 – 4:45 p.m.)
Ever since “Lines of the Broken” dropped back in May 2017, DROELOE has become a household name for TSIS. With their heavy involvement with San Holo and his bitbird label, the Dutch duo has consistently proven they’re a force to be reckoned with in their own right. Their vibrant sound shines on each and every release as the two constantly switch things up with varied production styles and guest vocalists, making for captivating tracks that will shine at Okeechobee. For an idea of their infectious sound, stream a couple of their standout tracks below.
shallou – (5 – 6 p.m.)
shallou is the perfect vibe to listen to at a beach party, and we're incredibly excited to have him on board. With an ambient sound that falls somewhere between indie and electronic, this Chicago-based producer combines gentle production with soulful vocals to create an intoxicating blend of sounds. With his set time falling right around sunset, we have no doubt shallou will bring the perfect energy to the table. Check out “Begin” and "Lie" for an idea of what to expect.
CloZee – (6:15 – 7:15 p.m.)
Closing out our 2018 beach party is CloZee, an undeniably unique French producer that’s quickly on the rise. With a self-described “World Bass” sound, her global influence is clear throughout her releases, pulling from both eastern and western styles to create a striking yet danceable signature. Check out “Koto” and "Secret Place" below to get an idea of CloZee’s unmistakable sound.
We can’t wait to see all of our readers at this incredible festival – a select few tickets remain here, but are expected to go quick. See you in the portal!
