With a lineup like the one we’ve got in store, this weekend will be one for the books! We’re starting things off with a bang at Monarch theatre with Stephanie and Lady Faith. Tucson is on for a treat Friday night with the Monster Outbreak Tour presents Party Favor, KRANE, and Two Owls, while Chris Lake keeps us moving on the dancefloor in Tempe and Jayceeoh hits the west side at Salt. Saturday night, grab your ghouls and make your way to BOO! AZ in Chandler.
Stefania Alessi, more commonly known as DJ Stephanie, is importing our beloved hard sounds straight from Italy and she’s doing it well. She has played Defqon (the holy grail of hardstyle), Euphoria, Mysteryland, and Audio Shock just to say a few.
Hardstyle goddess Lady Faith was raised in the Middle East and had to go to great lengths to break the mold she was confined to and pursue her dreams. She’s now one of the most renowned hardstyle producers in the scene. She’s high-energy and highly creative when it comes to mixing and producing and will have you thrashing like a madman in one minute and moved to tears with classical the next.
Few acts have the innovative color and diverse repertoire of Party Favor, one of the fastest rising names in Dance Music. His edgy and infectious style helped pioneer the festival trap genre, exhilarating audiences and turning heads across the world, leading to consistent headlining tours around the world at some of the best and most iconic venues. His high energy sets and contagious stage presence have allowed him to sell out venues across the globe.
KRANE, who originally went by KRNE, has been around for about two years and has recently begun gaining more attention along with the added letter to his name. KRANE creates a clean and unique future bass sound and after numerous originals and remixes has begun working with bigger names like QUIX, Ekali, and Keys N Krates.
TWO OWLS, who recently made the switch to a new moniker, are an up and coming duo you won’t soon forget. Members Andrew and Scotty showcase their love of dubstep by way of their filthy mixes of artists they look up to such as Ookay, Rusko, and Adventure Club. Evolving from 200 capacity shows and aggressive bass-house lines to internationally known festivals to come and powerful, moving chord progressions – TWO OWLS are on the flight path to a bright future.
2017 has been a big year for Grammy-nominated producer Chris Lake. He created his own label, Black Book Records, which the instant classic “Operator” was released on. Shortly after, he and Skrillex came out with the collaboration album of the year, HOWSLA, which hit #1 on the iTunes charts. Chris Lake was first recognized for his impressive remixes of songs such as “Climbatize” from The Prodigy, Leftfield’s “Phat Planet,” and Eurythmics “Sweet Dreams.”
He produces music, DJ’s, is a mastermind on the turntables and has shared his talents with fans across the globe. He is the founder of label imprint, “Super 7 Records” and has seen musical support from the likes of A-Trak, Diplo, Bassnectar, Borgore, The Bloody Beetroots and many more, which ultimately propelled him into becoming one of the fastest rising producer talents in the United States. In 2013 Jayceeoh was crowned champion of VH1′s “Master of the Mix” TV show, in which he won a Quarter of a Million dollars and a 1 Year contract as the official DJ to Smirnoff Vodka. His debut original release titled “DAMN,” released on Fools Gold Records later that year.
BOO! Arizona is back, and spookier than ever. With a lineup that boasts 12th Planet b2b Crizzly, Bonnie x Clyde, Bro Safari, KSHMR, Laidback Luke, MONXX, Valentino Khan and Zomboy there’s no doubt we’ll see both tricks and treats this Saturday.
