Good lawrd, just look at that line up on this “Piss Test” remix! A-trizzy really pulled together a super heavy number to peak the internuts interest for the upcoming Loosies release on Fool’s Gold. Who would have thought El-P and Jim Jones would sound so fresh on the same track along with the Flatbush Zombies and Flosstradamus. Just a few years ago I would have looked at that line up and thought ‘this will be awkward’ but fast forward to a few days before the coming appocalypse and I can’t get enough of this.

Who doesn’t love a siren laden raver rework, especially with a proper party starter of the dancehall scene, Natalie Storm. A-Trak and Dj Zinc’s massive single “Stingray” serves as the perfect backdrop to Natalie Storms sexually driven verbal berate. Not only do we get a fresh rework we also get blessed with some dope visuals, and at times some NSFW imagery, from the Notting Hill Carnival in London by way of Charlie & Joe of Forever Pictures. Stay tuned for this release with brand new remixes from bass upstart Dismantle, dirtybird’s newest house hero Shadow Child, and Miami JWLS dropping on October 16, 2012 via Fool’s Gold.
A-trak, posted a very favorable review on his Facebook page and the internets went wild. And straight plucked out of obscurity Kid Kamillion‘s trapped out rendition of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs x A-trak remix went from being another dope overlooked track on soundcloud to a track ‘for the G’s touching cheese’. Already with over seven thousand plays in a few days and a fan base growing every minute, catch the gravy train and get familiar with Kid Kamillion as this post apocalyptic trap movement grows even bigger every day.
The first days anticipation was at an all time high as the blue line approached Jackson so we could hop onto the Red to our final destination and enter the mother ship at Soldier Field. Being that it was my first actual festival that I got in legitimately I was mad hyped that I didn’t even notice the hordes of scantily clad neon bodies filling the train and roads leading to the Spring Awakening Music Festival. I couldn’t register or even start to comprehend that I was going to rage out to sounds of Bart B More, A-Trak, Dillon Francis and Skrillex all in one day; then come back the next day to rebuild and then destroy myself once again to the incredible sounds of Will Joy, Diplo, Shermanology, Felix Cartal, DIPLO and Moby! What a feeling. As Soldier Field peeked out from behind the Field Museum, literally looking like a space ship had landed on the lake front, sending out messages to the thousands making the pilgrimage to SAMF.
The aftermath of what was the Spring Awakening Music Festival still reverberates within my collective EDM soul. As I close my eyes the bass kicks, the treble spits, bright and shiny sun rays pound down on thousands of neon clad bodies, love mixed with a few other herbal essences in the air and the absolute grandness and uniqueness of the venue made for an experience like no other. Yes you can go to Lollapalooza, Pitchfork, and the countless other outdoor events in Chicago this summer but who can say they raged out to Skrillex in the rain on the 50th yard line of Soldier Field… well I know of a few thousand that did and we all got a story to tell, so sit back as you part take on my journey through my words and the visuals of Zach into the house of EDM at the Spring Awakening Music Festival.
A-Trak just remxied Justice’s guitar-heavy “New Lands”, making this already-big track even bigger. Justice’s New Lands EP, also features remixes by Falcon and Sebastian, will be out in late June on Ed Banger Records, Because Music, Elektra and VICE. It’s now available for pre-order.
