The weather has finally started shaping up here in Chicago and with that comes more street and music festivals than we could ever hope for. One I’m looking forward to in particular is the Wavefront Music Festival on Montrose Beach. Last year we couldn’t make it due to it being the same weekend as Electric Forest, but this year we’re blessed with the opportunity. Back to back weekends of music festivals? Sounds perfect.
Before we dive in and start hitting you with previews of each festival, we wanted to update you on a special competition happening for the Wavefront Music Festival – the DJ Invitational. My good friend Noah Saltz is battling other artists for the top spot which is an opportunity to receive an official spot on the festival lineup.
Between now and Sunday, May 19th at 11:59PM, the top 5 vote getters who were not selected as winners will have one last chance to have their fans vote. The votes will be tallied and the final four – the top 2 vote getters and top 2 judges’ picks – will perform Friday, May 24th at 10pm at Castle to determine which 2 DJs will play at WavefrontL. The winners will be chosen based on style, technique, music selection, crowd interaction and crowd reaction. The 3rd and 4th runners up do NOT go home empty handed. Each contestant to make the Final Four will receive a 3-Day General Admission pass to Chicago’s first and only electronic music festival on the beach!
Please do us a favor and vote for our friend Noah Saltz, his track “Skyway”, and we’ll see everyone on the beach! Just connect with your Facebook account to vote and then click the ‘heart’ button on the bottom left of the page to submit your vote.

It’s been many moons since the last rendition of Ashburn was discovered amid intergalactic chaos. Steeped in a natural distaste for all things academic, its legend has continued to grow. Is this the last offering? Not if our committed crew of sand-castle creators and crate-diggers have their say. Finals? What’re those? Summer 2088? Yes please. Soothe the ears & the soul. Enjoy our latest findings.
Special thanks to extended Madbury family, and prolific life-liver, Jolin Ras for framing our research in a cohesively groovy mixture. Shouts to Marcus and Ellington for their work in audio recovery and reorganization.

London-based Producer Duke Dumont has been creating serious buzz abroad and a recent partnership with Win Records along with leading independent U.S. record label Downtown Records, he presents us with his hit single “Need U (100%)” featuring A*M*E and MNEK. Everyone over in the U.K. has been blessed with this massive record for a few months now as its been sitting at #1 on the Top 100 chart for weeks now. Duke has been given support and appeared in everything from Spin, Paper, NME, even a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.
“Duke Dumont’s ‘Need U 100%’ is the first of what I feel audiences have been looking for these last few years,” says Sean Glass, founder of Win Records. ‘EDM’ exploded, now deep house is doing its thing, but what will really cross this music over are songs. ‘Need U 100%’ takes actual verse-chorus-verse structure, including a killer hook, and applies all the best sounds of deep house and garage right now. Throw in some classic disco flair and Duke Dumont is right alongside Daft Punk in the best dance producers out there right now.”
Embarking on a North American tour this week, you can expect Duke to supply you with some serious house anthems, so without further delay, I suggest you watch the video above and then hit the jump to see if he’s coming to a city near you.
