Beyond Wonderland is set to rage this weekend at the race track in San Bernadino. Word is there will be no tickets sold at the door so be sure to buy your tickets HERE quickly if you plan to go. And you can print out set times HERE.
We at Golden Bloggen are excited for Kaskade, Noisia, Joker, Calvin Harris, Congorock, Dirty South to name a few. Here’s a little background on some of our favorite artists at BW:
“Prior to being a recording artist, [Kaskade (he stage name for Ryan Raddon, a DJ/producer/remixer)] was a record store owner and a club DJ at a nightclub in Salt Lake City as a way to make ends meet for he and his wife. After he and his wife moved to San Francisco he landed a job as a A&R man at OM records, where in addition to reviewing demos for the label he also submitted his own material, which would pay off big time for him. In 2001 he went from behind the desk to behind the turntables and the recording studio as an artist in his own right. In 2003 Kaskade released his first album, “It’s You It’s Me”, which was well received by critics.” -Last.fm
“Dirty South caught the technically transmitted disease of DJing long before he even owned his first set of turntables. He taught himself mixing skills on his NEC tape deck, utilising nothing more than its twin cassette players and a pause button to recreate the sounds of club DJing in the safety of his own bedroom. By the time he got his first decks at the start of the millennium he’d already honed the techniques ready to take on the world of his heroes. At the same time he was mastering the concept of DJing, Dirty South was also readying himself for a future in studio knob-twiddling.” -Last.fm
“NOISIA (who took their name from the word ‘VISION’ inverted on an upside down VHS tape) are Nik Roos, Thijs de Vlieger and Martijn van Sonderen, hailing from the Netherlands. Influenced by an eclectic range of artists, from The Prodigy to James Brown, Miles Davis to Konflict, Noisia make music for DJs and dance-floors that is interesting enough to cross over from the clubs to your MP3 player. ” -Last.fm
