That was Part 1. This is Part 2. You can find Part 3 here. Saturday, just like Friday and Sunday, features an impressive array of artists. Some of the biggest names in the electronic music world will be playing sets, including Above & Beyond, Hardwell, and Armin Van Buuren. Pretty Lights will be bringing his soulful electro-funk, and the banana/champagne duo of Dada Life will aim to knock the socks off of the rowdy Circuit Grounds stage. While I do not want to take anything away from these artists, as they are all successful in their own rights, we here at Booty Shakers lean towards the techier side of dance music, meaning genres such as techno, deep house, and tech-house. Stick with us if you fancy spending your EDC Las Vegas going down the rabbit hole, in a world of heavy bass, hypnotic claps and energetic hi-hats.
Few producers in the history of dance music have made such a rapid and far-reaching impact on the electronic music scene as Eats Everything aka Daniel Pearce. This larger-than-life beat maker is at the forefront of a swathe of talented producers to come out of the West Country Bass Epicentre known as Bristol, defining an entirely new strand of forward-thinking underground music.
It is important to mention his skills as a DJ, which have gained him a reputation of one of the scene’s most on-point party starters. Always one to go with the moment rather than to meticulously plan out sets, one such example was an off-the-cuff set with Claude Von Stroke in Ibiza. What started off as a casual lunchtime spin to 40 people finished nine hours later to a crowd at least ten times bigger. The owner of the club then went on to say that in ten years of living on the Island, he’d never witnessed a party flow so naturally, ranking it in his top ten Ibiza moments of all time. Plain and simple, Eats Everything brings the party, so don’t miss this set.
According to Justin Martin’s online biography, he “started playing the pops and pans at the age of 2….. and now he is a dj.” While that might, I suppose, be part of his story, the real tale goes much, much deeper. Justin Martin is one of the founding fathers of the widely popular Dirtybird label, and he has been integral in pioneering a new brand of house music, a style infused with hip-hop, humor, and booty-shaking bass. Justin loves to have a good time, and his energy will intoxicate those lucky enough to be at one of his sets. Get up close to feel that wonderful bass, or take a seat on the cozy grass of the Cosmic Meadow and allow Mr. Justin Martin to guide you through this late night portion of the Electric Daisy Carnival.
Chris Liebing- Neon Garden- 4:00-5:30am
Chris Liebing is a DJ, a producer, a radio host of a weekly show and the driving force behind the labels CLR and Spinclub Recordings. His sound has continuously evolved during his DJ career, always true to his techno roots. He was one of the first DJs to use the new possibilities of the digitalization of music in a consequent and creative way. The real-time manipulation of the individual elements of his tracks plays an important role in his sets. Due to the good co-operation with various software and hardware makers, his current setup offers him practically endless possibilities. Chris will be bringing his heavy, hypnotic techno sounds to the Neon Garden, boasting the envious job of closing down the stage for day 2 of the festival.
