All of the Things: Galantis

“One great thing about Galantis’ stage presence is that they seem to be as happy as anybody else at the show. Galantis descended upon the Mayan Theater much like they did for their Sunday show the day before at Hard Day of the Dead: by storm. Even if they’re playing the same material, they plow through it and make sure everybody gets on their feet … Continue reading All of the Things: Galantis

2017 Festival Wishlist

I’ve been a consistent festival attendee since 2011, logging a yearly visit to Coachella, Electric Forest, and Summer Set. I also found myself at North Coast, Hard Day of the Dead, Lights All Night, Soundtown, Mamby on the Beach, Freaky Deaky, and a few others.

Did anybody … Continue reading frankles free fridays | Coachella Edition III

Starting about a year and a half ago, Zeds Dead took their music in a different direction, away from the dreaded, nefarious whomp-whomp of dub-step and graduated into the magical splendor of house. And now, apparently, trop-house in their mix for Pete Tong. Highlights include the kick-off track, their collab with Oliver Heldens, as well as the standout track off “Lost You” (available as a … Continue reading frankles free fridays | Coachella Edition II

It’s the month leading up to Coachella, so I’ll be featuring music exclusively, loosely from performers set to take on the sweaty masses in Indio leading up to game time. Hit play, lay back and let the warm sounds of Dolly Parton’s tortured vocals on Jolene. Todd Terje treated this remix with a deft, but careful touch that modernizes the classic without stripping or trivializing … Continue reading frankles free fridays | Coachella Edition I
