Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats Bring Rock ‘n’ Soul to Dallas

P1020585It is difficult to confine Denver-based Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats to a single genre. Elements of soul, folk, and southern rock crop up in Missouri- bred Rateliff’s music. Their self-titled debut album dropped in August and after blowing up, the band has been in non-stop touring mode amongst all the buzz for the bluesy tracks that make for easy listening.

Southern rock, homegrown honky-tonk, and modernized soul colors their debut release, drawing fans and praise from all over. This year’s “S.O.B” has been christened the “Rolling in the Deep” of 2016 by Paste, the band can count Jimmy Fallon as a fan, and Rateliff has received several comparisons to Mumford & Sons as well as Van Morrison… Continue reading

R.A.C. Electrifies Dallas, TX

P1020463R.A.C. took the stage at the Grenada Theater in Dallas as part of the Going Our Own Way Tour.  R.A.C, or
Remix Artist Collective, was started by Andre Allen Anjos in 2007 in Portland as a space for artists to collaborate and remix music.  For the past eight years, R.A.C. has succeeded in making a good song even better without straying too far from the style of the original.

Anjos has collaborated with many indie-pop favorites including St.Lucia, MNDR and Kele Okereke of Bloc Party, as well as Tegan and Sara.  Over the past several years, R.A.C. has become synonymous for catchy remixes that stand out against the typical house and dubstep of today without straying from the same chill, easy-listening style.  R.A.C.’s first full album Strangers dropped only last year and upon first listen, it is very clear that it was well worth the wait.  A strong track list that doesn’t try too hard and is just plain good distinguishes R.A.C. from the tons of new DJs flooding the industry.… Continue reading

Mad Decent Block Party 2015 Recap: Dub Dallas

IMG_8834 Mad Decent Block Party is now its eighth year and has grown to become one of the largest festivals on the circuit. The event bills itself as a block party with a family feel aesthetic and lives up to that statement if your family knows how to party. This year’s lineup features an array of names in the EDM space including 4B, Alion Wonderland, Borgore, Bro Safari, Cashmere Cat, Cut Copy, Die Antwoord, Dillon Francis, Sam Feldt and more. With each city/region getting a different lineup, the event has been a go-to party during the summer. Mad Decent Block Party stopped in Dallas this past weekend and for the third year in a row, put on a show hotter than the Texas heat.  The excitement was apparent and contagious even before entering the venue.  The heat did nothing to burn out the good vibes all around or stop the dancing from hundreds of festival-goers decked out in neon.  The line-up this year leaned more towards dubstep than the previous years, with openers Gent & Jawns kicking off the afternoon with a bang.  The DC duo’s Moombahton mix set the tempo and mood off on a high note.… Continue reading
