yyyaaaaassss Benny!!!! Thank you for the perfect summer jam.
He’s teamed up with Sofi Tucker for ‘Everybody Needs a Kiss’. The track utilizes a deep horn-led hook, and relies on strong melodic elements. Literally was hooked 10 seconds in. ‘Everybody Needs a Kiss’ is available now!
Alright Alright peeps! Here we go. You guys are always asking what songs I’m listening too, or what I’m playing in my IG stories. So, I want to share the songs I’m loving at the moment. Each week, I’ll try my hardest to share the top 10 songs I’m obsessing over.
Adriatique – Voices From The Dawn (Original Mix)
I love the chill underground-ish vibe the horns give throughout the track. It’s for sure a track that will acquire a certain taste, but if you like it, you’ll like.
What So Not – Beautiful feat. Winona Oak (Official Audio)
I could play this song 10 times in a row. I just love everything about this song.
Flume – Hyperreal (feat. Kučka)
Another one I would play 10 times in a row. To me, Kučka’s vocals enhance the musical sexiness Flume created.
Double Touch – Broken Paradise (Original Mix)
Okay! I have this untold love for Argentinian Tangos. I think they’re sexy, the dance and music. Broken Paradise has this tango-esk sound, an electronic sensual tango if you will.
AU/RA x CamelPhat – Panic Room
Picking up the energy with ‘Panic Room’ by AU/RX & CamelPhat. This one is a great workout song. Or, in my case, a great driving around with the windows down, moon roof open, and volume all the way up!
Fun, vocal-less, housie track. If I were a DJ, I would probs play with this song and try to mix it with some fun vocals.
Stupid Goldfish – Arabica
EXOTIC. I feel like I should be at a beach, somewhere where the weather never goes below 75 degrees, the water is clear as VOSS water bottles and blue as the sky, palm trees are tall as giants and the breeze is warm and salty. Can you see why I picked this track?
Chris Lake – I Want You
Totally a ‘getting ready for a fun night out’ song.
Noizu – Wavey
For sure a ‘driving to whatever fun destination’ song.
SOFI TUKKER – Batshit
Thank you apple for introducing me to this song. This is the song in the new Apple iPhone 8 commercial.
Check out the tracks below. Go to my IG and comment in one the pix which track you like the best and why! OORRR introduce me to new songs. I love new songs 😍🤩😎🕺🏻

The magical time of the start of summer is completely incomplete with out Chicagos’ Spring Awakening Music Festival. Just a few days before before the heat takes over the breezy nights of the city, Spring Awakenings thumps its musical heartbeat for three days, bringing out electronic music lovers from all over the midwest.
Over the last 2 years, we’ve been lucky enough to grace the rumbling fields of Addams-Medill Park while DJs like Kaskade, deadmau5, Above&Beyond, Showtek, Dillon Francis, Steve Aoki, Alesso, Afrojack, Armin Van Buuren, Diplo, Yellow Claw, Galantis, Martin Garix, Rufus Du Sol and ssssooo many more. This year, the festival grew in attendance, stage sizes, sold out crowds and accommodations for its attendees. The after-parties were incredible and the day vibe at the festival, was nothing shorter than musical heaven.
2018 will be no different, as the festival will take over Addams-Medill Park from June 8th through the 10th. If our 2016 & 2017 experience were to predict 2018… Don’t event reading and grab your wallets and buy your tickets right now! We’re already counting the minutes for Spring Awakening, because after all, there’s no better way to celebrate the birth of summer.

“In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy…”
In Music Festival World, is just another night where boys and girls can dress up as whatever they like and no one can say anything about it… The hard-core ragers turn on their LED gadgets while they step into their party dimension and stay hydrated. Fortunately for us, this was not our first rodeo.
We gathered our Halloween gear and got to Indy’s hottest event/concert venue, The Pavilion at Pan Am Plaza, for Haunted Fest, Indy edition. WE were extra excited for A) Haunted Fest 2016 was so much fun, we loved it, B) it’s was here, INDY!! Which we’re so happy to see more of our favorite types of show come through our city, and C) Our close friend Jason Barth opened the show!
The Pavilion at the Pan Am Plaza is huge, great warehouse vibe with multiple elevated VIP areas, an ultra VIP area (that could use less lighting and more bass, give it that ultra lounge exclusivity) and bars (for the 21+) all through out. We did missed the silent disco, the outside little plaza would be ideal, plus it would make for the perfect spot to cool down.
Cash Cash rocked the stage with remixes of classic 90’s electronic beats. They rocked a killer mix of Eurythmics -Sweet Dreams, Nelly’s Ride with me and lots of their originals. Their vibe is always so dope and they put on a great show every time. Waka Flocka Flame, for us, totally changed the vibe… Personally, really into his music, but the crowed loved him. He does put on a fun interactive show. He brings his pose up on stage and got the crown hyped. Now, Yellow Claw, that’s totally up or wheel of loving. It’s amazing how music can transport you to a different time and place. I found myself dancing at Ultra Music Festival or Spring Awakening when some of his songs would play. That’s thing about musicians (Yes! I believe DJs/Producers are musicians), if you love them, they take you on an amazing journey with their songs and performances.
Haunted Fest 2017 was a huge success for us. The Pavilion downtown Indy is amazing and we’re so excited to see all the upcoming shows they have in store for us! Check out our Haunted Fest pix below.
