Seattle’s Decibel Festival celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary this year, and it was quite the event. From over 25,000 attendees, the festival made a big splash in the electronic music community both locally and nationwide. With 68 total performances from acts including, Flosstradamus, Henry Krinkle, Aeroplane, John Tejada and more, Decibel had something for everyone, and with the help of partners like Red Bull Music Academy and KEXP, this year’s festival boasted some pretty incredible secret shows and live workshops and seminars.
We were able to check out a handful of showcases and are more than excited to see what Decibel brings to us for next years festival. Visit the official Decibel site for more from this year’s festival, and even more information about what’s next from the good folks over at dB. Thanks for having us, and we’ll see you next year!
Here are a few upcoming shows from dB Festival:
October 23 – Empire of the sun at The Paramount
October 27 – RL Grime at The Neptune
November 20 – James Blake w/ Nosaj Thing at The Showbox Sodo
Forbes comes around once again and releases their cash kings list for all the big DJs around the world. These guys make some serious bread. The most impressive aspect of this list is that Steve Aoki has done 250+ shows this year alone. That’s a lot of damn shows.
Time to take it back a bit to June 2012 to A-Trak’s Boiler Room set. If you have time today and need some good music to listen to this is definitely a legendary set that you do not want to miss. A-Trak!!!
Lebron James is a pretty funny dude. So funny that he ended up getting his own hotel room DJ while staying in China. Check out the clip below.
We can’t wait until A-Trak comes out here to judge the west coast final for Redbull’s Thre3Style DJ competition in Seattle. Him and Mark Ronson got together in London recently and put on one crazy show. Here’s a video recap of all that went down.
Make sure to come out to the Thre3Style Battle February 25th at Foundation where RK’s very own McClarron will be hosting the event with Four Color Zack.
This is probably one of the funniest/corniest fails we have ever seen. Not sure what country this was in but notice that the guy DJing doesn’t even have his equipment plugged in. The footage is just hilarious over all because the chick is OBVIOUSLY not singing live either.
Just got informed about this event from the people over at OnlyTheBeat and it sounds like one pretty damn good time. Get ready for another year of beautiful snow-capped mountains, winter sports, incredible people & of course, amazing dance music. We are pleased to invite you to the second-annual AWOL Snow in the world’s best ski location: Whistler, British Columbia! Click HERE for more info.
This guy seems to be everywhere right now! Jerry Wang, an official Rich Kids DJ, and up and coming producer has been tearing the club circuit up as of late. Fresh off his most recent gig with Sidney Samson in Arizona, this weekend Las Vegas will play host to Jerry Wang and his incredible onslaught of party jams and house favorites. Wang’s skill set is unique in that he has an ear for all genres along with being one of the most technically gifted DJs out, and he’s able to incorporate all of those elements into some unforgettable sets no matter where he plays.
“A Rich Experience” is something we’re going to start doing just to give you some insight on what the brand has been doing when we’re not in the office working to bring you the best in clothing and entertainment. As always “Rich is not what you have, it’s who you have beside you”, so money isn’t necessary to have a “rich” experience, just great people and a great time.
For this rich experience a few of us from the brand got to go out and watch Erykah Badu perform live at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle. Now we don’t know about you, but to us Erykah Badu is a legendary artist so this seemed like we were checking something off a bucket list. Seeing Erykah Badu and her band The Cannibinoids live is something everyone should experience in their life, at least once. The night was amazing as she lit up the stage with her band behind her giving Seattle one hell of a performance. Not only is Erykah Badu a legend vocally, but she sure knows how to put on a show, great stage presence.
Another great part about the show was that we somewhat got to be involved, at least the brand was. Her Dj, DJ Big Texas was rockin’ one of our Propaganda tees (purple) on stage along with our signature “Hooligan Head” hat while Erykah Badu performed. Erykah Badu’s personal DJ (DJ A1) was also later spotted at the after party wearing a “Nautical” tee from our Summer line that dropped this year. It was cool to see that they loved the brand and could represent in our hometown. Erykah Badu’s musical director (RC) also put up a picture yesterday wearing on of our “RK Hooligan” v-necks, he is a Grammy nominated director that also tours with Snoop Dogg. A big thanks to the whole crew for reppin’ the brand, it was really cool to meet everyone and see that they loved our message and what we stand for. Make sure to look out for these guys if they’re ever coming to you town, this is one show you do not want to miss.
Chances are this album is going to get remixed alot. Ellie Goulding’s follow-up to her debut album Lights is set to drop very soon. The title of the new record is Halcyon, and will feature the original version of this track, along with a ton of others which I’m sure will be incredible. In the mean time, listen to this dope ass remix of Anything Could Happen by party-ready producers Birdy Nam Nam.
