When it comes to pop-punk, Happy. isn’t trying to be modern; in fact, singer Tate Logan, a recent USC graduate, would rather you feel like you’re listening to a band from ten years ago instead of a new, upcoming band.
“The atmosphere is electric,” says Bob Franklin, the CEO of Tin Roof, when I ask him to describe The Senate in his own words.
With the Re:Coil Tour making its stop at Music Farm, fans from Columbia and across the Southeast came to see electronic funk and hip-hop powerhouse Gramatik throw down a set that was hard to forget.
Appearing on festival lineups such as Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo as well as having tracks dominate the HypeMachine charts, Taska Black is a name everyone should know. The 21-year-old producer from Antwerp, Belgium, is challenging the very word “genre.” Unveiling all types of new approaches to future music, Joachim Gorrebeeck’s creative techniques are grabbing the attention of ravers all over the world. Taska has just come out with a brand-new collaboration with San Holo called, “Right Here, Right Now,” and is also coming out with an acoustic version of his latest Monstercat single, “We Would Never Do.”
After a long wait from the 21 Savage concert, students have been eager for the next performer to take stage on campus. At SpringFest 2018, put on by Carolina Productions, Atlanta-based rapper B.o.B took the stage on Greene Street for another concert free to students. With songs like “Airplanes,” “Out of My Mind,” “Strange Clouds,” and “Nothin’ on You,” B.o.B brought students back to their middle school memories for his hour-long set.
Happy (late) St. Patty’s Day! This year, the Five Points Association held an amazing music festival for the Columbia area with big names in the alternative rock and country scene. People from all across South Carolina–and even Jacksonville, Florida according to one of the radio station hosts–came to see acts such as J. Roddy Walston & The Business, Rainbow Kitten Surprise, and headliner Judah and the Lion.
Day 4: The long haul. After three days of the festival, the soreness and fatigue has set in for the majority attending. However, not one performer held back. Okeechobee held all of the heaviest and hardest artists until the last day of the festival to give fans one last party before they get on the road.
After a long second day at Sunshine Grove, the sun rose on one of the most anticipated days of the weekend. With acts like Super Duper Kyle, Blackbear, Snoop Dogg, Illenium and Big Gigantic, festival goers had a wide array of music to enjoy.
As the second official day of the festival comes to a close, many went back to their campsites tired, aching, yet yearning for more. It was a day full of good vibes and great energy as the Friday performers gave it their all.
As we now reach the final week before Okeechobee, attendees from across the country are making final adjustments to their schedules and to their outfits. As an “OkeeHomie,” I will be making my return to the festival after an amazing run last year. Although many changes have been made to the festival itself, this year is looking bright.
ALL AROUND, SoundCloud artists get a bad rap. Maybe the creation and proliferation of niche genres like electronic folk and indie jazz bothers career music critics, or maybe too many random guys on Tinder include their SoundCloud handle and link their mixtape in their bio.
A DJ who is able to create his own unique sound is hard to find in this field now-a-days, but Liquid Stranger is one of the few who have perfected their individual sound. Martin Stääf is a Swedish born EDM artist. He is able to blend different genres of music together in order to produce his own sound distinct from all the other DJs out in the universe. Martin first launched himself as Liquid Stranger in 2003 and it has been history since then.
