Culture Collide Festival review pt.1 with Classixx, Harvey, CSS

October 12th, 2011 by | Before Bigs Exclusive, Concert/Festival Review, Electronic Dance Music, Electropop, House, Pop, Reviews, Rock, Techno |

Last weekend featured the 2nd annual Culture Collide festival, a 4-day event in Los Angeles presented by Filter Magazine. I went on Saturday and Sunday and it was a lot of fun.  Multiple venues such as Echoplex, Taix, The Echo, ReFORM, and many more featured various acts from all over the world which were all very enjoyable to listen to. On Saturday I saw Classixx, DJ Harvey, and CSS perform and wow did they impress.

Classixx is an electronic duo from Los Angeles.  They are absolute beasts and have a very bright future ahead of them. Their laid back and unique style make for great music live and in the headphones. The two remix a lot of great tracks adding in some of their original work creating great vibes with their beats as well as very upbeat and heaving dancing tracks. Check out two of my favorite of theirs below.

DJ Harvey from Cambridge, England has been very influential with disco house all over the world for many years. This guy is a very old school electronic music man but in a good way. He loves playing super long sets and I was extremely impressed by his energy and great original tracks. He still continues to sell out shows in different continents and for good reason. His chill/laid back vibes with his energetic style equals a great electronic sound. Check out what I’m talking about below with a couple awesome tracks by him.

Locussolus (DJ Harvey) – “Little Boots”

Locussolus (DJ Harvey) – “I Want It”

CSS which is an abbreviation of Cansei de Ser Sexy is a rock band who comes from Sao Paulo, Brazil. They were the headliners of this show and absolutely killed their set. In a packed EchoPlex venue they lit it up with their energy and pizazz. The have a great alternative rock/pop sound with Brazilian flavor which is why it is no surprise that they have had much success in the United States as well as all over the world. My two favorite tracks  by them are below.

“Lets Make Love and Listen to Death From Above” [Download]

CSS – Hits Me Like A Rock (original + Dillon Francis Remix)

August 10th, 2011 by | Dance, Pop, Remix |

CSS‘s “Hits Me Like A Rock” is a bonified 5-star on my iTunes with this fun indie electro pop sound. Wouldn’t be surprised to hear this song get similar exposure and attention like “Hello” has been getting in the last few months. It might take mainstream media a while to notice this song but soon enough more and more people will be singing along to “Hits Me Like A Rock”. Download
