ELEMENTS Music & Arts Festival is back in less than a week with as solid of a lineup as ever. Having attended last year, ELEMENTS was easily one of the best festivals I’ve ever been to. Not a minute of music that was not amazing and only good vibes. Needless to say, the TEC crew has been looking forward to this event for awhile. This year’s line up features a bunch of amazing artists. Here’s some artists you’ll have to catch this coming weekend:
Mija is the latest in a wave of kickass female producers who are dominating their respective spaces in the electronic music scene. Mia’s eclectic mix of melodic dubstep, trap, and future bass is an instant party starter and has drawn incredible crowds at Mysteryland and just recently Moonrise Festival this past weekend. She’s definitely a must-see artist at Elements this year.
Bass house extraordinaire and part-time Pokemon, Ghastly, will get you grooving with his bass house beats. Ghastly’s mixing keeps you moving as his exciting style live can best be described as genre-defying. Look out for a quick b2b by Ghastly with his homie Mija at sometime during either of the two’s sets.
Oshi, the boy wonder, will be quite the act to watch. At the age of 17, Oshi has already caught the attention of OWSLA, with an upcoming collaboration with Skrillex to be released, as well as the attention of artists such as Lorde. He’s certainly an artist to watch as he continues to reach new heights over the next few years. His signature breezy sound makes for the perfect music to kick back with friends for some lighthearted fun.
With a slew of solid releases as well as a tour with StéLouse across North America,Prince Fox has been making serious moves. The crown prince of future bass makes his return to NYC at ELEMENTS, and we expect a combination of his melodic synths and the high energy he always brings.If you need a dose of raw bass music to balance out the house and techno-heavy lineup, be sure to catch Bleep Bloop. Protege and collaborator with the likes of underground bass music wizards G Jones and EPROM, Bleep Bloop is sure to deliver a face melting set of heavy bass and 808s. Adding diversity both in terms of genre and background, we’re excited to take a break from the DJs to witness the South African band BCUC’s performance. Their indigenous sounds and chants mix surprisingly well with their guitar shredding and percussion. Should be a really unique and interesting experience!
