Heat of the Week: Drex Carter “Welcome to the Jungle”

Heat of the Week: Drex Carter “Welcome to the Jungle”

Drex Carter is a rapper from Orlando that is apart of the47. He started making music at a young age when he first rapped over Eminem’s ‘criminal’ instrumental when he was only 10 years old. That first freestyle was his self-proclaimed worst rap he’s done, but from there he was hooked and knew he had a love of making rap music. Through time, he started creating his own sound beyond spitting bars over famous beats. We asked what his sound was today and he said, “Imagine if Greenday and Kanye West had a collab album, my sound is the opposite of that”. His inspirations in life and music are Eminem, Kanye West, Travis Scott, and Jon Bellion. Eminem was the one who made him fall in love with lyrics, but Kanye West and Travis Scott were the reason he fell in love with music. Drex Carter believes Jon Bellion is the best artist out and his biggest inspiration currently. Bellion just does it all and he thinks that’s where the industry is heading as a whole. With the whole internet wave pushing everyone into being more independent, he thinks at this point an artist needs to be multifaceted with what they can bring to the table. He called it the Russ effect. People really out here producing, engineering, rapping, singing, mixing, and mastering shit all by themselves.

Interview

Any other talents?
- Can hold my breath for 7 mins

Favorite song you’ve made?
- Bohemian Rhapsody

What are you working on now?
- I just put out a project a few days ago and I’m sitting on so much music. I’m just focused on getting out now and performing for everyone I can and start to grow a real diehard fanbase. All I need is the platform at this point, I make music strictly so I can perform and inspire. We have some shows coming up and you’re not gonna wanna miss them. 

What do you love about Orlando?
-People have been saying Orlando is next up and about to blow for years. The crazy part is that it actually is now. There’s too many of us now who give a fuck about the music and building something for people from our city to look up to. No disrespect to anyone but we really didn’t have that growing up here. There’s a bunch of us who genuinely want that for the city and can bring that.

What makes Orlando home?
-Music easily Anybody in the art/music scene you want to shoutout? Shouts out Otown Marco and Kaiydo, they the hottest in the city as of now but I’m coming for that spot. Shout out BAD ONE aka Protoolsshawty aka lil mufasa for being the best producer in the game period, point blank, no questions. Shout out Devin More, Pat Woods, Iampvyne, Rowland Evans and Mike Wilson, Maddie Barker and Zach Burns for being on the project. And shouts out 102 and the47. Free X

Winning Song Review

“Welcome to the Jungle” has a little bit of everything that a listener wants in a song. Drex Carter’s formula for making music really came together in this song. The song has a combination of an electronic/hiphop beat, ear gauging hook, and lyrics with a meaning. The production is lively and dedicated. The lyrics are fun, brings energy, and makes you think about the world. Drex Carter’s energy proves that he is ready to make his mark on the rap industry. By the end, it makes you want to be apart of Drex Carter’s posse and follow the rest of his career. Favorite Part- “I chose the fast route, fuck society. If you're not really about this cash then just lie to me. I had to open my third just so I could see. Just on this Odyssey of life come take a ride with me”.

Artists of the Week: LouGod and Lil PUNK!

Artists of the Week: LouGod and Lil PUNK!

Artists Bio

Campfire Ent. is a group composed of rappers, directors, producers, singers and models. This group was founded my Tavares Bailey (aka Lil PUNK!) and Christian Peralta (aka Chris Campfire).

LouGod is the rap/producing/engineering extraordinaire of Campfire Ent. The majority of beats rapped by Campfire Ent. are produced by LouGod. He was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina & raised in Maryland before moving to Orlando. LouGod’s influences consist of Jay Z, Gucci Mane, and Chance the Rapper.

Lil PUNK! is the rap/modeling/designing extraordinaire of Campfire Ent. He is also one of the founding members of Campfire Ent. Lil PUNK! was born in Nottingham, England & raised in Broward County. He’s lived in Orlando for the past 10 years. Lil PUNK’s influences consist of Missy Elliott, Kurt Cobain and Wiz Khalifa.

LouGod and Lil PUNK! met through mutual music friends and worked on their first project together with their good friend Rokk, titled “PUNK ROC GODS.” From there working on music and other ideas together was second nature to them. Their chemistry clicked instantly and it shows in their music and on stage.

What would you say your sound is?: “Shoot, we can't even call it! (Laughs). Sometimes it could be grunge trap, other times it could be neo soul, at times it could even be R&B. It all depends on the mood in the studio”.

Favorite thing about Orlando?: “The diversity, beautiful women and opportunity to grow as a person and artist. Also, It’s simply the fact that I’ve been here for almost 10 years now. For LouGod it is the connections he's made here and the progress he's made at Full Sail because he came to Orlando to accomplish his goals”.

Anyone in the Orlando art/music scene you want to shout out?: “Shout out WestSide Lucas. He's one of the hottest cats coming out of Orlando. Shout out OK!Charlie. Shout out Tablez. Shout out Hazy. Shout out Free Dolo and WuTran. Shout

out our family Lo, Avi, RayRich, Bad.Scoop, Tax Season, Henny Black, Gloom Garcia, Rokk, Era Daze, and of course the man who made all this possible, Chris Campfire!!”

 

Winning Song Review

Lougod Ft. Lil Punk! “Love Me Not”

“Love Me Not” is a new age hit. If you have listened to anything out of the Campfire Ent. discography you won’t hear a song like this one. At the same time, this song carries all the aspects of LouGod and Lil Punk!’s music that excel. The beat was produced by LouGod himself, it’s light and simple, but compliments both the artists’ vocals perfectly. From the start, LouGod’s hook is more than just catchy. The hook is relatable and brings out real emotion. Everyone knows that moment when a significant other tells you they might be moving on. You can really hear the chemistry of the two rappers when Lil Punk!’s soft whispering vocals hit behind LouGod’s deeper voice. It is a remarkable combination. Lougod’s verse explains all the things that drove the girl away, while Lil Punk’s verse pleas to the girl that the love is too strong to just up and leave. One of the biggest moments of the song is Lil Punk!’s screechy voice when he sings “Hey!” in the middle of his verse. This quick moment helps switch up the flow up the song. His emotions truly come out when he does that, and it's something that occurs in his songs frequently. It’s this unique attribute that makes him stand out from the rest.

Favorite Line by LouGod: “I’m a man, baby. Take your chance with me. We can go to France, teach me how to dance”.

Favorite Line by Lil Punk! “Look inside my eyes baby, I don’t tell no lies baby. I just want to hold you once again, you’re my best friend”. Listen here, https://soundcloud.com/campfirecords/lougod-love-me-not-ft-lil-punk.

Lasercon: All Good Things Come in 3’s!

Lasercon: All Good Things Come in 3’s!

Three reasons why we are excited about this week’s Create, The DJs!

Lasercon has three talented Dj’s playing in one night. There is an eclectic range of quality skills that will be present on Thursday evening. LNY TNZ is changing the game with his hardstyle bangers. Tuneboy is an Italian legend that can create an entirely different show every time he performs with his lengthy catalog. Lastly, if hardstyle is not your thing, Gammer’s set will have the audience feeling the joy in the air with his happy hardcore set. I hope you can free up your schedule because Thursday you're getting three great DJs at the price of one. Here’s a little information on them to get you excited, if you aren't already.

LNY TNZ

 

1. Burn it Down!

LNY TNZ’s new single “Burn It Down” is everything we want out of the hardstyle genre. The single is an electronic pop record with the same little hints of LNY TNZ that makes their songs such bangers. This song has a beautifully put together hook with vocals that match it perfectly. Watch the music video for it here https://youtu.be/3fMWID4Hkkc.

2. Fvck Genres EP

Their latest EP was everything that we love about the duo. There were four new songs on the EP with collaborations with Sam King, Dave Revan, and Kalibwoy. It was a collection of possible festival bangers. “Hit Em Hard” was the stand out track of them all. You can check out the EP on Soundcloud, Spotify, etc.

3. TECHNO

Everyone still loves this talent packed collaboration of LNY TNZ, Diplo, Yellow Claw, and Waka Flocka Flame. With over 15 million views on Youtube, this song flew around festival grounds for years to come. Waka Flocka’s energy synchronizes heavenly with the mixing of this great collective of DJs. I think it's a fact that on Thursday Waka would

love to say, “The club is packed front to back, man, I’m loving that.” Revisit the track here, https://youtu.be/K5mqUxCouCc.

TUNEBOY

 

1.He’s a Legendary DJ from Italy.

If you haven't seen Tuneboy live, then you do not want to miss out on Thursday night. Tuneboy has been killing it since the 90’s. He helped create the hardstyle genre that we love today, and it can be argued that he does it better than anyone else. He gave his first live performance at the legendary Cocoricò club in Italy. Anyone who has consistently been DJing for almost three decades needs to be respected and is a must see. Tuneboy will always elevate the pure sound of Italian Hardstyle.

2. Just watch his Qlimax 2016 set!

Tuneboy’s set at Qlimax 2016 was incredible. From start to finish I could not stop watching this video. He starts off with “Hear This,” which starts off with the the incredible drop of “Don’t believe everything you've heard so far,” then it's time to straight rage for his hour and 15-minute set. This set goes through his legendary discography and will still have you leaving wanting more. If Thursday night’s vibe is anything like this, it will be amazing. If you do not click on anything else on this blog, click this! https://youtu.be/bQ7pnJ6hMfo.

3. Freshly coming from EDC Mexico

Tuneboy just finished playing at EDC Mexico last weekend. This will be his first show after EDC, so his adrenaline from that will hopefully transpire onto Venue 578. Dj’s usually turn it up during festival season, so we will be waiting all night patiently to see if Tuneboy has any surprises up his sleeve.

Gammer

 

1. New Single “Feel Like This”

This track is nothing like we've heard from Gammer before, it takes happy to a whole other level. The song lifts you up with its airiness and makes you never want to come down. Gammer and Darren Styles have a chemistry that shows on their tracks together. I’m excited to hear more from these two. The link to the single can be found here https://soundcloud.com/monstercat/darren-styles-gammer-feel-like-this.

2. He’s one of the top hardcore DJs

Gammer bleeds happy hardcore! he has taken the hardcore genre by storm and owned it. He has the accolades to show for it. In 2004, he won Best Breakthrough DJ, and he didn't stop there. He has won best Hardcore DJ six years in a row at the Hardcore Heaven Awards. He also has won Best Producer and Best Track of the year. It's safe to say that he knows what he’s doing.

3. Has the Monstercat stamp!

Monstercat is an independent music label for electronic dance music. They have helped launch some incredible artists’ careers. Some notable Dj’s that have been signed to the label are Slushii, Jauz, Snails, and Marshmello. They are notable for help push the underground scene onto a mainstream platform. Gammer will continue to flourish with the backing of Monstercat.

Scouting Orlando's Top Hip Hop Artists!

Are you a local hip-hop artist? Get your name buzzing and your music heard!

Venue 578 wants to support the local scene of Central Florida. We are ready to listen to the talent our area is putting together. It would be an honor to say we helped jump start a new local hero. The venue is starting a new segment through our blog on the Venue 578 website. This is a weekly competition, sort of like a virtual battle of the bands. We are looking for all types of sounds coming out of the Hip-Hop genre. We want everything from traditional bars to experimental singing. It's simple, send in one song to submissions.venue578@gmail.com at 9 am on Mondays with your artist name and one link to a page you want to share, that being Soundcloud, artist website, Youtube page, Band Camp etc. Please do not send music to any other Venue 578 email. The subject line of the email should be “Music Monday” with the date. For this week only, We will allow artists to send in songs at any time before Tuesday, March 2nd.

Normally, we will only listen to the first 50 songs emailed to us. A song will not be listened to if the email is sent before 9 am on Monday. If an artist’s song does not win, they can either submit the same song or submit a new song a different week. We will email the winning artists and ask for a short five sentence bio. If the song has multiple artists on it, the main artist will be the only one with a bio and a link.

There will be five top songs picked from our staff by Wednesday of every week. On Wednesdays, a poll will be created to see who had the best song of the week. People will vote on the best songs for the next two days. On Fridays, the winner of the poll will be announced. The winner of the week will get a blog written about them. In this blog, The artist will have a full bio, a review of the winning song, and a link to their music. Additionally, their song will be added to our SoundCloud. Lastly, there will be random opportunities to receive giveaways and more to use at the venue. An artist cannot win two weeks in a row but does have the opportunity to win multiple times. Spread the word to all your friends making music. We want to listen to as much talent as we can. Let’s keep this fun if we don’t pick your song, stay motivated and keep making music. Venue 578 is excited to hear what the Orlando scene has to offer!

Venue 578 Innovations: New Video Walls Installed!

Venue 578 prides ourself on creating the best music experience. We are continually improving the complex with technology that will lead to our fans having the greatest show possible. Two brand new video walls are now installed on the main stage. The first wall is located in front of the DJ booth, which will provide cutting-edge visuals that will increase the fan’s experience. The second video wall is larger and will allow the artist to display visual content that brings the performance full-circle. This innovation in our production will enhance the concert experience for both our fans and the artist. The walls will get their first piece of action tonight with the Bixel Boys on the Create Stage. Venue 578 is ready to show these bad boys off, so come to the show tonight and check them out!

But wait there’s more!

The venue is not stopping there. We have plans to expand the wall on the main stage to almost double the size and add a visual banner that perimeters the dance floor in the next coming weeks. Keep a look out for all the changes, and we hope that our fans are just as excited as us to see the new additions come to life.

Let’s Get to Partying,

Venue 578 Staff

7 Hip-Hop Artist that You Might Not Have Known Performed at Venue 578

7 Hip-Hop Artist that You Might Not Have Known Performed at Venue 578

We don’t like to brag, but we would like to think we have a pretty good ear for talent. It is important for us to bring talented artists to Orlando during their come up. We respect and follow artists’ careers that we book for the long haul. We love to get that gut-feeling when an artist is performing at Venue 578, and their energy is so high that we know they are about to be a star if they aren't already. Here is a list of artist that have performed at Venue 578, and a description of their accolades to date. We hope this list of past stage crushers will get our fans excited about the acts we are booking in the future.

 

Chance the Rapper

Who doesn't love this guy!? He is getting co-signs from presidents of the United States and legends in the rap game. I had the pleasure of watching him at Venue 578, and it was one of m y favorite concerts I’ve ever been to. When he came to the venue, it was for his family tour before he dropped his third critically acclaimed mixtape, Coloring Book. Throughout the night, he went through his whole catalog from 10day, Acid Rap, and Surf. Better yet, D.R.A.M opened for him! This was back when D.R.A.M was still running tours off his hit song “Cha-Cha” before our favorite 2016 hits “Cash Machine” and “Broccoli.”  

Today, Chance the Rapper is arguably top five hottest rappers right now. He is performing at and nominated for seven awards. He was the reason the Grammys allowed free music to be accepted for awards at the Grammys. Coloring Book is the first streaming-only album to reach the top 10 on the Billboards. Lastly, He did all of this while not being signed to anyone! Chance the Rapper is completely independent. Needless to say, we would love to have him back.

 

Chance.jpg

 Young Thug

Hate him or love him, Young Thug has taken over the trap world. The majority of rappers are trying to bite his sound and are failing. Thugger has that extra amount of character that not many other rappers possess. So what has this dress wearing rap star been doing recently? Young Thug released a critically acclaimed album called Jeffrey, which is his real name. The album cover went viral immediately because it's a picture of him wearing a dress. All of the songs are named after someone famous such as Floyd Mayweather, Kanye West, and even Harambe. Everything he does seems to go viral. If you haven’t seen it, his video for “Wyclef Jean” has 14 million views, and he’s not even in it. I don’t want to spoil too much of it, but check it out. 

The link is here, https://youtu.be/_9L3j-lVLwk


Migos

Migos are the hottest in the game! They have taken over the radio. We had Migos at Venue 578 two weeks before Donald Glover slapped his seal of approval on Migos at the Golden Globes. After Donald Glover had said that Migos were the modern day Beatles, their song Bad and Boujee had a 243% increase in online streams. Bad and Boujee is honestly the best club song out right now. Venue 578 is honored to have it performed live on our stage. How do you not turn up when you hear the infamous “Rain drop, Drop top.”  

Migos just released their critically acclaimed and number-one album on the charts called Culture. This album has hits like, “Bad and Boujee," “T-shirt,” “Kelly Price” featuring Travis Scott, and “Slippery” featuring Gucci Mane. Coming off their album, they are also teaching a class about culture at NYU for a day. To top it all off, they were even on Donald Glover’s Golden Globes winning show Atlanta. 

 


Gucci Mane

Where do we even start with Gucci Mane? We won’t say that we had Gucci Mane before all the fame because he was already a Hip-Hop legend when he came to the venue, but if it's possible, he blew up more, post-Venue 578. 

First, he was featured on one of thebiggest radio hits today with Rae Sremmurd called, “Black Beatles.” This song went viral when the Mannequin Challenged was involved, even Paul McCartney himself made a video. Gucci also released his winter album, The Return of East Atlanta Santa. This album features the bangers “St. Brick Intro”, “Both” Featuring Drake, and “Last Time” featuring Travis Scott. Gucci Mane said he loved this album because it was his first album that he wrote post-jail. He also proposed to his fiancé at an Atlanta Hawks game. The new and improved Guwop has stayed busy since getting out of jail.

Watch the video to his single “Last Time,” a personal new favorite of Gucci. 

https://youtu.be/42Amfo4YN8c


Travis Scott

It feels like we have been on the Travis Scott hype for years now. Our first encounter with Travis Scott when his first video for “Love Sick” appeared on Youtube. After that, he was immediately signed to Grand Hustle as an artist and G.O.O.D Music for production. We still paid attention to him when he gained more attention through his mixtape Owl Pharaoh and Days Before the Rodeo. When he came to Venue 578, he was touring his critically acclaimed debut album, Rodeo. He tours the house down with this electric energy.

Today, Travis Scott has released his album Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight. This album had some good hits like, “Pick up the Phone” featuring Young Thug, “Through the Late Night” featuring Kid Cudi, and “Goosebumps” featuring Kendrick Lamar. It seems like every week now we hear a new story about something crazy happening at a Travis Scott concert. At Lollapalooza, He encouraged a fan to jump the barricades, and the fan was arrested. He is always stage diving and passing the mic to his fans in the crowd to rap the lyrics. One time he kicked a security guard out of the show because he took the mic away from a fan. Most recent, at the Drake tour in London he fell into a giant black hole in the middle of the stage. Apparently, he broke the main piece of Drake’s visual production, and Drake refunded everyone that went to the show. Travis Scott’s Shows are always lit!

Watch him make a fan’s life in this video.

https://youtu.be/rmzJkJgzvck


Earl Sweatshirt 

When Earl Sweatshirt came to Venue 578, he was still fresh back in the states touring his debut album. Since then, he is still one of the smartest lyricists in rap that is underrated. He has released his second album called; I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside. Although this is a short album, it is complete and gives the bars that we all love from Earl. Since he came to the venue, his group Odd Future have not done a lot of things together publicly. There are rumors that there was a falling out between people in the group. After a year of not seeing Earl and Tyler the Creator together, The two finally joined the stage together during a surprise performance at Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival under the name EarlWolf. He was also featured on the best posse cut track of 2016, “Really Doe” by Danny Brown featuring Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, and Earl Sweatshirt. Now in 2017, fans are waiting for his third album release. Who knows maybe the album will have a Tyler verse on it. We can only hope. 

Here is the link to Really Doe, it is a must hear. People can argue all they want, but Earl had the best verse. https://youtu.be/spfsdpuvUyQ


 Big Sean

 

It has been awhile since Big Sean has been on the Venue 578, but we have always followed his career as well. I remember when he was releasing his Finally Famous mixtapes, working with artist like Mike Posner and Chiddy Bang, and his biggest song was “Bullshittin”. Big Sean has put out four solo albums, dated many celebrities, put out some of the biggest hits from year to year, but it seems like he still doesn't get his credit in the game. He is a veteran in the game at this point. Recently, he signed to Roc Naition and he finally earned his Jesus Piece from Jay-Z. His latest release, I Decided, is getting the reception as his best album. It has some great songs like “Moves”, “Bounce Back”, and “No Favors” featuring Eminem. It seemed like he owned his promotion tour for the album. He had performances on Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Fallon, and BBC radio. One thing we love about Big Sean is that he always stays humble and appreciative.

My favorite recent video of Big Sean is him doing a cover of Kanye West’s “I Wonder”. Check it out here, https://youtu.be/nc435bE8ieU

Crankdat is Set to Take Over the Game in 2017

Crankdat is Set to Take Over the Game in 2017

If you haven't joined the following of Crankdat yet, now is the time to more than ever be-cause he is ready to blow up. Crankdat is just a regular kid from Ohio, who so hap-pened to be a very talented DJ. He started producing when he was in high school. After his first production, he realized that he loved doing it and that other people liked it. From that point on, being a DJ was his new passion. His first gig was a cancer charity event for his friend, but he did not expect the turnout to be at the level it was, which was 400 people.

Crankdat went to Kent State to be an exploratory major. He also had a scholarship for track and field. He is a man of many talents, but his music production showed the most promise. He blew up after releasing his remix to “Trap Queen” by Fetty Wap. The remix has over 40 million views on Soundcloud and 60 million views on Youtube. In 2015, he had one show, which was opening up for Waka Flocka Flame. One year later, he is touring non-stop. He did all of this while still being a full-time student at Kent State!. For 2017, he has an exciting announcement he released on Twitter.
More on Crankdat’s come up visit: http://www.kentwired.com/article_7d2014c8-4fa5-5e8d-8a42-80b742ac2174.html

CRANKDAT IS FINALLY A FULL-TIME DJ

A few hours ago, he posted a screenshot of a note on his iPhone that explained every-thing everyone has been wondering about him.The screenshot and link are below.

https://twitter.com/crankdatmusic/status/826482216322600962

One thing that is so great about Crankdat is that he often communicates with his fans. The announcement gets us extremely excited about his future and the year that he will have. Venue 578 knows Crankdat is a unique talent that we get to see before he blows up. He also is performing at a music festival called, The Number Fest. This festival in-cludes artists, Young Thug, Jauz, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Blackbear, Herobust, and Waka Flocka Flame. We are anticipating his new release, but for now, here are some tracks to get to know him better.

A New Chapter for Venue 578, Recently Sold to New Owners

A New Chapter for Venue 578, Recently Sold to New Owners

After more than 20 years under the original ownership of Jan Harrold who purchased the old Firestone Tire company's building in the early nineties and transformed it into one of the country's most renowned entertainment complex and concert venues, Venue 578 (Previously Club Firestone) is now officially under new ownership.

After a few failed attempts at selling the business to other management firms and companies, Jan finally found new owners for the historic venue.  The  new ownership is a group comprised of several people in the entertainment industry.  It includes William Royall, Silvia Guillan, Javier Guillan, Joel Font, and Matthew Kanuck.

William and Javier both own and operate ZEUS Nightlife, a promotions and artist talent agency, and Backwoods Music Festival, a forty-thousand person four day music festival with eight stages and over five hundred performing artists, while both Joel and Matthew act as investors for promoters who throw world tours for acts such as Ricky Martin and more.

5 Tracks by Travi$ Scott to Get You Hype

5 Tracks by Travi$ Scott to Get You Hype

Hip hop fans have been obsessed with Houston rapper Travi$ Scott since the early 2010's (and rightfully so). Few artists have a sound as diverse as Travi$. Critics have compared him to Kanye, mellow songwriter Bon Iver, Kid Cudi, and indie dance band Tory Y Moi in the same breath. Until recently, we were only blessed with mixtapes by Travi$ Scott. No one was complaining though because Owl Pharoah and Days Before Rodeo were mixtape masterpieces that brought us bangers like Hell Of A Night and Blocka La Flame (just to name a few). This past September, the rapper released his debut studio album Rodeo, and the fans were not disappointed.

These 5 tracks below are some of our favorite tracks from Travi$ Scott. We also included our favorite lines from the songs. Make sure to let us know which are your favorite tracks in the comments or on social media.

Stream Music By All 8 Bands on the Mushroomhead Show Lineup

Stream Music By All 8 Bands on the Mushroomhead Show Lineup

If you're into metal music, you're aware of Mushroomhead. These costumed monsters have been slaying stages with their melodic metal since 1993. That's 2 years before their long time (former?) rival Slipknot formed, but who's counting. All we know is we can't wait to hear some of their best lullabies like "Never Let Go", "Sun Doesn't Rise", and "Kill Tomorrow" blasting from our speakers.

Now, Mushroomhead alone would suffice for an intense night of eardrum-shattering music, but the rest of the lineup is equally intriguing. In no particular order, we have Mortiis, September Mourning, Unsaid Fate, Catcher In The Rye, Amerikan Overdose, Sister Kill Cycle, and Pyskotribe.

 Andrew Rayel's 5 Best Tracks

Andrew Rayel's 5 Best Tracks

Trance DJ Andrew Rayel has quite the resume at a young age. It helps that he started producing at 13. At the old age of 17, he got signed to Armin van Buuren's label Armada Music-- no big deal. He had multiple tracks played on the radio program A State Of Trance, including a tune of the week with "Aeon Of Revenge". Tiesto plays his tracks live. So does Venue 578 alum Dash Berlin. We could go on and on.

If you're a fan, you probably already knew all that. If you aren't, we hope it helps convince you to party with us on Thursday, September 24th. Not persuaded yet? Check out the budget-friendly drink specials we're running that night. Also, check out these trance masterpieces below....
