Hey USF Students, I know I have to become more consistent with updating my blog posts, and I promise to do so! So lets kick this off!
If you haven’t heard by now this is the Fall of EDM!!! From the Identity Show to Skrillex, it is bound to be an interesting semester.
Identity Fest presented by Skull Candy and Live Nation is bringing you America’s first touring EDM festival. They make their pit stop in Tampa on August 24th and you can bet that they will bring the best show you’ve seen since EDC Orlando! With names like Kaskade, Rusko, Chuckie, Pretty Lights, Steve Aoki and so much more you know it’s something you don’t want to miss.
It will be at the 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheater, tickets are on sale for $50, which isn’t online (online is $60). You can contact me at email@example.com or contact any other promoters for the discounted tickets. Also, BullsGuide is going to be giving away a select few tickets to loyal BG Fans!
If you haven’t heard by now, Mr. Dubstep himself, Skrillex, will be in Tampa at the Ritz Ybor on December 16th. Show has already sold about 600 tickets in the 2 weeks they have been on sale. It is sure to be a sold out event and with supporting acts such as 12th Planet, Nadastrom, and Two Fresh, its going to be a great way to end your finals week! There will be plenty of local djs playing in the side rooms, myself included. So make sure you check this event out!
Before I go into the music, make sure you check out my new residencies. Starting Tuesday the 9th, I will be at CDB’s in Temple Terrace and starting August 19th I will be at Jacksons Bistro!!! Dont forget to check me out every Saturday at AJA Channelside!
Now for what you really been waiting for…THE MUSIC!
After teasing us for months, Diplo finally released his moobahton banger ‘Horsey’. You will notice the song sounds a lot like his other tracks, but this one takes the cake! I have this song on constant replay on my iPhone and whatever else music outlet I have. It’s beyond amazing!
My good friend Johnny Mac from 914 Hitsquad sent me over this track he just finished. It is an absolute crowd pleaser! He takes the top 40 hits ‘Last Friday Night’ by Katy Perry and blends it with the Sidney Samson edit, and morphs it into the the release from Wolfgang Gartner ‘Menage a Trois’. I’m loving this track and quickly found it’s way into my sets.
Lastly, local artist Stephen Marcos sent me this track. Even if you’re not a fan of dubstep, most people recognize the track ‘Hold On (Sub Focus Remix)’ by Rusko. The track itself is amazing, but Mr. Marcos comes through and not only shows love for Tampa, he absolutely murders this track! I am just gonna have to let you listen to it for yourself. Words won’t do it justice.
Unfortunately, I don’t have time to upload all the music I wont so this will be it until next week. Trust me, there will be an update next week. I love the guys over at BullsGuide too much to not show my love of music and my appreciation for them letting me do this! Until then…
