CHECK OUT THE OFFICIAL AFTER-MOVIE!

Relentless Beats brought the fire with Arizona's BIGGEST electronic and hip hop festival ever! With the biggest names in the game, fans came from all over for the best festival experience we've seen in a while. With unparalleled stage design, visuals, lights, and the perfect setup at Rawhide (no sound ordinances)... this was NOT the festival to miss.

Decadence Arizona 2017 is the New Year’s celebration that everyone should experience. The two-day festival will be held at none other than Chandler’s finest venue, Rawhide Event Center. Mark your calendars because December 30th and 31st it is going DOWN!

I remember a time where EDM, or songs that drew influence from it, rocked the Hot 100. Each track had a degree of wholesomeness or nostalgia that made them to die for. A number of new DJs wanted a piece of the action, and the lemons that made lemonade ended up running dry. Instead of expanding upon the signature sound, various artists decided to replicate it. The lyrics also became more mundane and sometimes nonsensical. Once rap began to retake the charts, EDM had to be put down (even the catalog on iTunes isn't as busy as it once was).

I’m going to be completely honest with y’all; I don’t think I’ve been this disappointed in something straight out of the gate like I was with Maximono. I wasn’t told ahead of time that this was club music, and went in expecting something a bit more, well, interesting?

DUSK MUSIC FESTIVAL, A LARGER THAN LIFE COMMUNITY EXPERIENCE

With its third annual return to Tucson on November 10th and 11t, Dusk Music Festival continues to embody the rich diversity that personifies Tucson, but with a twist - a big move to Armory Park, downtown at 222 S.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you mixed Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek", or Bon Iver's "715 - CRΣΣKS", with instrumentation similar to The Chainsmokers' "Paris"? I'll admit it, neither have I. However, the small music collective Neo Noir (think of it like BROCKHAMPTON) has offered their answer to this unlikely question, with their single "Drift Away".

In my opinion, after Justice abandoned the sound that they created for their Grammy nominated debut album, Cross, it seemed like they left an empty space that no one has been able to fill. After 11 years of waiting, I think that a possible contender has come along to fill that void. Renato Cohen's new EP, Duke of Weird, establishes the Brazilian DJ as someone to look out for.

The composition of the album is definitely high quality as I can imagine any of the tracks appearing in featured films or television programs. It has an "ordinary" sound that makes it so easy to listen, but I would hardly describe it as boring. Each track seems to convey a story or specific emotions that we experience in daily life.
