Day 1 Tunes - Hudson Music Festival

Driving up to Saugerties today to celebrate in the Sun with my human brethren and take in some beautiful tunes.  I made a Spotify playlist with music from some of the artists I expect to hear.

The Five Hudson Project Artists you Forgot to Put on your Schedule

The Northeast's festival of the Summer will take place July 11-13 in Saugerties, NY


The Hudson Music Project offers a chance to be a part of history attending the inaugural event.   The festival grounds haven't been used since 1994's legendary Woodstock Festival. Most importantly, the lineup is stacked from top to bottom with proven festival standouts and not beatport flash-in-the-pans or billboard fly-by-nights.

In this post I break down the five most underrated names you may have slept on.

1. The Flaming Lips

The Lips are nine parts spectacle and ninety-nine parts pure LSD - and nine or ten parts musical genius.  As festival superstars go this Oklahoma outfit is right at the top of our list.

2. Atmosphere

Slug and Ant are Minnesota's rap flagship - a notice to the universe that this state comes correct when it comes to clever and honest rhymes delivered fearlessly over unique and alternative beats. I saw them at Vans Warped Tour in 2003 and would see them a number of times subsequently due to their famous relentless touring and my proximity in Ann Arbor.

Hit the Jump for numbers 3-5!

2 Step Tuesday - Pittsburgh with Miaa Glow, SynEater, Eryn Evans and Hana Nickels

There's no place like home (repeat).

Especially when you can go back to Pittsburgh and have your family come through in droves when you play at a little bar deep in Lawrenceville on a Tuesday.


The shit that really blew me away aside from all of the love was how talented these Pittsburgh cats were. I should know to expect dope DJs in the Steel City seeing as this is where my career began.  SynEater started the night off with a super clean and also heavy set. Hana went on at 11 and it got mad soulful.  It's really incredible how much breadth UK garage has. I played midnight to 1 as the crowd got thicker and I spotted my dude Tom Nason from Pitt Electronic Musicians eating a beat salad that looked truly delicious.

Here is my set to Stream/Download/Share/Like. Don't worry I only talk at the beginning and end!

Shout to RSK feature on the album art.
OH I TOOK A BUNCH OF PICS LOOK AT THEM ALL HERE BUT IF YOU DON'T HIT LIKE ON THE PAGE I WILL PUT THE FUKU ON YOU.

Peep some more pics after the Jump

There are actually good photos from this event but I thought I would try animating a few and see how the response was.
