Relentless Beats

WATCH: The Sound of Q-Dance Aftermovie

Earlier this month, I had the chance to cover The Sound of Q-Dance in Los Angeles, Calif. for a different publication. I was ready for a new dance experience in the form of a hardstyle festival. I’ve had a taste of hardstyle in the past, more specifically at Electric Daisy Carnival in 2012, when Q-Dance commanded the attention of thousands at the three-day festival.

As more of a house music fan, I was curious to document my seven-hour experience of intense basslines and distorted synths. Even though harstyle is still not my go-to genre to listen to on my way to work, I have a new found understanding of the music and how untouched the culture is by the mainstream take over of dance music. The stage set up was awe-inspiring. The fans were dedicated and poured themselves into the experience. Wildstylez, The Prophet, Frontliner, Brennan Heart, Sylence, Villain and Angelenos Lady Faith and Mr. Skeleton took the stage at The Shrine Expo Hall and gave quite the show. See for yourself the incredible energy of this festival in its official aftermovie.
